Royal flush down the toilet.
I thought it was now about " obstruction" ?
None of the indictments or pleas have anything to do with the 2016 election. Wasn't the focus originally on Trump colluding with the Russians meddling in the election ?

Cons had no problem with the Ken Starr investigation into Whitewater meandering all over the place. Anything it turned up was fair game. Rule of Law!

And it cost the taxpayers $70,000,000 to find out Clinton lied about a BJ. But Rule of Law!!

There was much more evidence to look at with Whitewater. The only thing that meandered belonged to Bill. So far no real evidence of " collusion " has been shown.

“Much more evidence” Lol!

The only criminal charge resulting from a $70,000,000 investigation was because Clinton lied about a BJ.

If you think that's it was about, and not about the person holding the highest position in the world using his influence on an intern, then I really can't help you.

Yawn

Silly TMan. Since the beginning of his campaign Trump made his intention to reverse as much of Obama's bad policies pretty well known. In this case we are talking about sanctions put in place literally days before Trump's inauguration. Pretty obvious Obama was trying to hogtie the new administration. What is also obvious is that Trump and company felt the sanctions against Russia were an impediment to better relations with the country that could improve the situation in the Middle East. No story there as hard as you libs try to make one.

For someone who thinks he's so smaht, you sure are stupid TMan.

BTW just read this article in the liberal journal The Week written by the liberal Edward Luce, Washington Bureau Chief at the Financial Time, a graduate of Oxford with a degree in Politics and Economics and a former speech writer for US treasury secretary, Lawrence Summers during the Clinton administration.

But what does he know, right TMan?

Liberal America’s unhealthy fixation on Russia

(Today’s Russia) offers no ideological challenge to democracy — and its economy is smaller than Italy’s. Yet liberal America has worked itself up into a moral panic. If it were not for Vladimir Putin, we are asked to believe, western democracy would be in reasonable shape. Without Russia, there would be no Donald Trump. At best, such claims are an exaggeration. At worst, they are a red herring.


Mr Biden is a good barometer of Democratic thinking. In a co-authored article for Foreign Affairs, Mr Biden calls for the creation of a 9/11-style commission “to examine Russia’s assault on American democracy”. The body would identify tools to fight the Russian menace. “Americans need a thorough, detailed inquest into how Russia’s strike on their democratic institutions was carried out and how another one might be prevented,” he writes. In sum, Mr Biden is calling for a new Cold War. But his reasons had little to do with foreign policy. The aim is to explain how Hillary Clinton could have lost to Mr Trump.


"Today, the Russian government is brazenly assaulting the foundations of western democracy around the world,” Mr Biden concludes.

There are three problems with this line. The first is that it absolves Democrats of their own mistakes. Mr Putin did indeed throw all the bots and trolls he could muster against Mrs Clinton’s campaign. Moscow also helped hack and leak the email accounts of key figures in Mrs Clinton’s orbit. But to conclude that Russia threw the election is a stretch.


Mr Putin is an opportunist who wishes to tarnish the west. But America was already doing that by itself. He was only throwing paraffin on to the fire. The market for fake news predated Mr Putin.



I like this part particularly. Democrats = hypocrites.

The second problem is that it looks nakedly partisan. Last year, Democrats accused the FBI of being a damaged outfit. Today they hold the agency up as the epitome of public virtue. In 2012, Democrats attacked Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee, for saying Russia was America’s “number one geopolitical foe”. Today that is the Democratic position.



Which leads on to the third problem. Democrats want to see Mr Trump impeached.... it is unwise for Democrats to will that outcome by judicial means. Mr Trump was elected at the ballot box. He must also be ejected there.

Most Americans are clearly bored with the details of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Perhaps they will take notice if Robert Mueller unearths something dramatic. Until then, the Democratic obsession with Russia looks rash.

It is also a boost to Mr Putin’s ego. The idea that a struggling petro-state thousands of miles away could manipulate the world’s greatest democracy is beyond flattering. It is empowering. As The New York Times reported, blaming Mr Trump’s victory on Moscow has tightened Mr Putin’s domestic grip. There is no need for staged pictures of a bare-chested Mr Putin on horseback. Just sit back and listen to the Democratic party.


BTW TMan, how'd that impeachment vote go yesterday?

So we have a National Security Advisor lied about the number and nature of his contacts with the Russians, but pales when compared to holding the highest position in the world using his influence on an intern. You are so confused.

Bolded it for you to give it the dramatic impact you intended. Lol.
