    Some of his writings on Presidential powers is a bit concerning, especially his feeling that Presidents should be immune from criminal or civil prosecutions while in office.

    Beyond that, I really have no opinion either way. He'll be conservative but no idea if he'll be in the mold of Kennedy or Scalia.

    If that is an accurate interpretation of his views, then I am concerned too.

    He does believe congress still has the power to impeach saying that is the effective check on a President's power.

    The Democratic Socialist (which is totally not Orwellian at all) off to a great start.

    Almost like they elected someone who was still tending bar at 28 to Congress.

    To put this in context he just didn’t utter that word. He was asked about strat$rgy for handling PR issues and he mentioned they Colonel Sanders said “N” all the time and didn’t get in trouble,

    I think there is a distinction between that and then just throwing the n word around.

    Um he did utter the word not just "N". It was a conference call on avoiding the exact thing that he got caught doing

    So odd. No NRA members named here, just some of the people we were told by the media were heroes.

    So confused right now.

    Definitely don't recall anybody listed here named as a hero by the media. Do you think the NRA is heroic?

    Also, Republicans made fools of themselves at their idiotic hearings at the same time Trump made a clown of himself overseas.

    The NRA is a contemptible organization, that doesn't let local officials who blew it off the hook.

    Oh please Jim - Trump
    Made th same Statements about defense spending as previous presidents but actually got something done and publicly demonstrated increasing will to make NATO stronger. Great success.

    Finally the hearings were emabarrssign for that corrupt adulterous piece of shit Strzok as he showed his arrogance and self serving behavior. Even CNN said it was damming.

    I guess you see what you want to see. I thought Strzok owned Gohmert and gave compelling testimony as to why it was this whole bias thing is a big load of crap. If he really wanted to sabotage Trump, he could have leaked the investigation well before the election but he nor anyone in the FBI did that.

    Ooooooh! Mueller has filed a new indictment in federal court this morning. Just announced that 12 more Russians have been indicted in the hacking of the DNC computers in 2016. Hey, I thought it was Seth Rich who did that?!

    Oh boy 12 foreigners who will never see court.

    That investigation is really stretching to find something

    Its classic case building. Indict the foreign co conspirators to lay the foundation to charging their American counterparts

    Except you missed the part where Rosenstein stated no Americans were involved.

    No collusion but an indictment if what we known the Russians try to f*ck with us just like the Chinese.

    But it’s becoming more clear that they is no evidence of collusion.

    You missed the part where Americans were not directly involved in the hacking but nowhere yet has it been revealed who benefitted from their actions. Collusion is alive and well

    Uhhh yeah right. No evidence of anything yet after 23 months.

    Per Chuck Todd on CNN today - he asked that all this happened under Obama’s watch after he poopooed claims of Russian meddling. It showed Obama did nothing to stop this.

    Your holding on to some notion of collusion as a pacifier to get you through theTrump years.

    BTW - collusion is not a crime. And therefore even if your fantasy comes true - it won’t mean anything.

    you also missed where Rosenstein started Republicans were targeted too. But their security was more robust. Pedestal was hacked because his password was “password”.

    Sure collusion is not a crime but engaging a foreign power to assist in your election is. I don't hang my hat around collusion. I'm more interested in obstruction of justice and conspiracy. Those are likely to be the ones that bring this President down
