No POTUS kept wanting to be the #1 story every night. So he kept tweeting stupid stuff and lied so often he can't keep it straight.

Self inflected wounds.

Taibbi: How Did Russiagate Start? - Rolling Stone

Btw libs, are you aware Mueller has carte blanche to investigate what he wants? That includes Obama's surveillance of the Trump campaign as well as the Clinton Foundation ties to Russia.
started with obama and hillary rolling over for Putin and allowing government databases to be hacked for 8 years. When obama defended russia in the debate, that was a stunner. The pulled missles promised to Poland to please Putn.


The we had hillary using a personal device overseas despite warnings she would be hacked. then her home server and sharing emails with a maid, amd lawyers who did not have clearance. HRC essentially gave russia passwords and info thru her irresponsible behavior.


Only hope the russia probe snages obama and hillary.

I don't expect anything that ends in '..gate' to amount to anything anymore.

Taibbi pointed out - "What exactly is the FBI investigating? Why was it kept secret from other intelligence chiefs, if that's what happened?"

The MSM have been throwing up a lot of smoke lately and libs are running around yelling "Where there's smoke there's fire" but is there? Who's making all the smoke? I don't care for Taibbi's politics, but he's not a dumb guy. If he's not getting to the bottom of this then who is? It's hard not to get the feeling the FBI would love to satisfy the MSM's demands to find Russian collusion, despite the fact it makes no sense. But that's not what the FBI is for.

Let ALL the chips fall where they belong.

My bet would be that it isn't Obama and Clinton who are sweating it.

Think orange...

When we settle this internally, the next step is to settle it with Russia in a way that they never pull this stuff again.

Same way all scandals-looking-for-a-crime perpetuated by and news manufactured by the left starts; someone blogs it, it goes to facebook then Twitter, Maxine Waters screams it, then it goes to cnn, snl, ... Then Schumer... =(

The public deserves to know what's going on. It deserved to know before the election, it deserved to know before the inauguration, and it deserves to know now.
