You realize you just made a death threat against the sitting vp? You better hope nothing happens to him. Well i guess no matter what you should be hearing from the secret service.

The truth will come out, eventually. Either Trump's campaign was dirty and/or he tried to obstruct in FBI investigation, or he did not. Very smart people within the intelligence community have been tasked to get to the bottom of it.

Let's see how it plays out.
My guess is Trump will step down way before all this plays out. Really he does not need this and I think the goal all along was winning the election. That is why he keeps bringing it up all the time. That was the high point for him. Plus he made the admission that this was harder than he thought and that was before all the drama of the last couple weeks. Trump follows the news and what is said about him. And he does not take the negative stuff very well. There has to be a point where wants it all to end.

If say next week Trump steps down and Pence is the president besides a momentary celebration by the left it actually hurts your cause. Pence will have a much easier time in getting the GOP agenda through congress, not make the newbie mistakes Trump has and the farther away all of this is to 2018 and 2020 the better. He can run for two terms so you hypothetically could have almost 12 years of President Pence.

Yes and I know Pence could never win a presidential election. Just like almost everyone who said Trump could never be president. Just like how improbable it was for a jr. senator from Illinois with a funny sounding name could knock off Hillary and become President.

And remember it is much easier for an incumbent to get re-elected.

Sorry that doesnt pass the smell test.

Did your intellectual brain finally figure out that if you remove Trump, who is kinda progressive in ways, you get Pence, who is GW Bush all over again, only more Christian right.
Then you get McConnell and Ryan....... You guys will never win this way. It will just get you guys killed for treason.

If Pence served any more than 2 years of Trump's term, Pence could only run for one more term, not two.

But you were fine with Clinton as president who was clearly on the take from anyone willing to donate to her and bills charity. I don't think there ever was a ex presidental family that turned their time in the white house into so much cash.

Broke people like the Clinton's were near the end of Bill's term and early after are much more susceptible to this sort of corruption than the richest guy ever to be in the oval office.

What exactly do you think Trump did with the Russians, not Flynn or someone else but Trump?

Sure he does.

Trump is not that rich, he's a phony, who is indebted to the Russians for money for his golf courses and businesses, because he can't even get an American loan, because he's such a lousy business manager with many failed businesses! He is also a Corporate Ho owned by the Kremlin, Deutsche Bank , and others who have loaned him money.
