Bonus points for Mueller having the smarts to go after this particular stash of emails. Who was it that ran the transition team?

We might get a two-fer!!!

Those of you cheering this... You idiots obviously never heard or what happened to Nixon.

And obviously there is something to this whole thing, or else Manafort and Flynn wouldn't have charged, and Flynn wouldn't have copped a plea deal.

Sure, go for it, Trump. Firing the prosecutor is just what an 'innocent" guy with nothing to hide does.

What a pathetic lot.

Manafort and Gates have been indicted and Flynn and Papadopolous have pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

If Mueller Is fired and Pubs acquiesce to the firing, it would be be clear that the Country is run by the spineless.
Really sad, isn't it? And meanwhile, he robs them blind with a tax "cut" and they line up for more. He has destroyed the office of the presidency and they cheer him on. He cozies up to dictators and throws away international friendships that have been fostered for decades and they think it's wonderful.

After all of this is over, we're doing to need a mass program to unbrainwash them.

If these are such slights, why hasn't Mr. Trump attempted to use his pardon power to undercut Muellerís investigation?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-cou...?.tsrc=fauxdal
Rex Tillerson was supposed to be "fired" or "quit" every month since March.
Lot's of stories about how Jeff Sessions will be "fired" and John Kelly will "quit".

Don't you folks ever feel silly with all these Fairy Tales that never happen?

I'll go way out on a Limb and say that Robert Mueller will NOT be fired "next week" or even the week after that by Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnel (Adam Schiff's latest tirade) and certainly not by President Trump.

Why??? None of them have the Power to fired Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
How can you folks not understand that???

Hogwash is strong too.

There isn't a person in D.C. that could escape a charge of lying if confronted by an unbiased FBI. investigation.

Lying and hypocrisy are the tools of politicians and bureaucrats.

That is highly illegal and against the 4th Amendment.
E-mails on a gov't server don't have to go thru FISA or the NSA unless on secured networks.

Which if were the case GSA would not have them.

Duh.
