53. We were right all along. "FBI investigating Trump" should be headline.

Time to reflect back on who reacted how to this news, posted on DU just a few hours before the hackers took down DU.

Lying to Congress, election fraud, conspiracy, and whatever they call covering up Major Crimes.

33. I've always wondered why there hasn't been more conversation about RICO.


I'm not a lawyer...so, make sure you got a big grain of salt with ya on this one...

IIRC, RICO is a list of about 13-14 illegal activities (some of which on the surface seem pretty minor) that, when done in an organized manner among 3 or more people...that's RICO.

Lawyers...have I got that anywhere near right ?

It proves that Russia attempted to influence the election's outcome. And it is proving that it was an effort coordinated with the Trump campaign.

They will drag out the investigation forever and it could be a whitewash. The only hope is that foreign intelligence has enough dope that they are forced to cover their own ass. My confidence in the FBI has been zero for about 50 years.

When Watergate broke and everything was revealed, it was a Republican who went to the White House to tell Nixon he had to resign. Can you see Gowdy or McConnell or Ryan ever getting to that point?

if the DOJ is not willing to press charges it means nothing. Though more likely Comey is just going to rubber stamp a clean bill of health.

I am loving this! I knew the trump people would be caught doing something, maybe not this big nor this soon.

I called my Senators today to remind them Gorsuch is not a good person for that office. I don't really see how they are going to proceed with that considering where the pres. and executive office is right now.


(now if I could just find the remote for the fart machine that my grandson lost yesterday, today will be put down as a perfect day all around!)
