They are all focused on destroying this President, if possible. It's a total sham, and it should be shut down.

It's quite obvious that the only place you get your "news" is from CNN and MSNBC. You are completely misinformed. And uninformed.
So where do you get your facts from if not the news.

Bill Clinton was, he was impeached and he stayed in office. He tried to negotiate a deal with the justice dept for Hillary, how was that not against the law?

Bill Clinton was impeached and the Senate acquitted him. That is not above the law. He had no control over that.

What deal did he try to negotiate?

Instead, he kept talking about the investigation being a "witch hunt" and insisting that there was no wrong doing by anyone on his campaign staff. Oh, and yes, there's the mystery of those missing minutes of tape too.

In short, Nixon may have been telling the truth that he didn't have any advance knowledge of what his campaign staff was up to, but that is not what ended his presidency. What ended his presidency is how he handled things AFTER he found out about what his campaign staff were up to.


Those new rules which also forbid a special counsel to go beyond the original scope, like Mueller has, were time sensitive and expired in 1999.

Duh.

E-mails on a server?
It has been confirmed the power of the NSA was used to spy on the Trump Team Campaign communications, via telephone and e-mail, without the correct judges warrant to do so. Susan Rice had the NSA prepare a spread sheet of all Trump team communications. ALL of them. No judges warrant to do so. Clapper lied and denied it to Congressional committee under oath.
FISA warrants are illegal to use for Americans.

Comey was fired and now it's rumor that Mueller will be fired. I'm sorry but doesn't that send red flags to everyone including Trump supporters. If Trump has nothing to hide, what is he so afraid of.

Oh yeah, like Donald Trump is such a money saver ! He has spent more on going to Mar A Lago and golfing than this whole investigation has cost.

Got news for you Trumpees. Even if Mueller goes, the investigation goes on. If you, or your fearless leader, think that would end it, you both better bone up on how these things work. Ask Richard Nixon how it worked out for him.........well, he's dead, but if you could ask him.......

No.... Mueller is in on it.
No one knew, until it got down the road and started investigating just what Mueller has been involved in and very fish circumstances with outcomes. Heck, he hand delivered yellow cake uranium to Russians, without congress knowing.
