sounds like the cult of personality or for those who remember the history of the not so distant past Spain, Italy, Germany, Russia, and the hits just keep coming

All I can say about Nunes is:

You know the difference between a brown-noser and a shitehead?

Depth perception....

Sheesh PIA yer stealing my stuff!

Lever the ness, all one needs to do is to read Fox News to get a whole different ‘reality' on the subject. Or plural if need be.

It’s really quite funny.

If... there were not so many people so dangerously deluded and misinformed about todays goings on from their spin machine. FOX is an exceedingly effective tool for obfuscation and misinformation. Read (or watch) sometime if you (or others) have ever wondered how Goebbles and NAZI Germany were so effective in their “news” distribution networks.

FOX et al have learned that lesson exceedingly well.

Hope Hicks is next: Obstruction of Justice, plea deal, orange jumpsuit, the works...

Hope Hicks Told President That Trump Jr.’s Emails ‘Will Never Get Out’

Quote:
The Times reported Wednesday that Mark Corallo, who resigned from his spokesman job in July, has accepted an interview request from Mueller’s team. Corallo reportedly plans to disclose that in the call, Hicks, the White House communications director, and Trump discussed the meeting that included Trump Jr., Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, then-campaign manager Paul Manafort and a Russian lawyer who was expected to give them negative information about rival Hillary Clinton.

"Mr. Corallo... told colleagues he was alarmed not only by what Ms. Hicks had said — either she was being naive or was suggesting that the emails could be withheld from investigators — but also that she had said it in front of the president without a lawyer on the phone and that the conversation could not be protected by attorney-client privilege."

“Mark Corallo was instructed not to speak to the press, indeed not to even answer his phone. Later that week, Corallo, seeing no good outcome and privately confiding that he believed the meeting on Air Force One represented a likely obstruction of justice - quit”

I am EXTREMELY concerned that the Trump administration is about to expose all kinds of high-level, top-secret intelligence information in an effort to fight off obstruction charges. In other words, there appear to be no bounds to obstruct Justice and benefit Russia. They're compromised, without any doubt.

Do you really think it will be anything Russian Intelligence doesn't already know? A lot of things are secrets from us, but not from them!

The Obstruction Case Is Getting Solid - Slate. Devin Nunes' behavior is the closest thing to treason I've seen in my lifetime, with the possible exceptions of Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen.

and yet the Speaker of the House is now on board the Trump Train.

The naked abuse of power screams for men of integrity to stand up and oppose it and all we get are people who sycophanticly rollover and accept what could very easily become the fact, we have a dictator serving as president in name only.

Anyone who believes the DoJ will file criminal charges should be admitted immediately into psychiatric care. Anyone who believes right now the House would file charges of impeachment should be admitted immediately into psychiatric care. Anyone who believes charges filed by a House which would be flipped in the future would find a Senate willing to convict should be admitted immediately into psychiatric care.

The only remedy has been preserved in a Constitutional amendment, and that could come under attack. For those who continue to talk of an imminent Constitutional crisis, they have become immersed in it, and will drown. We have no choice but to resist until despots are driven from our great land.

Even the 25th Amendment solution is not viable at this point. That is why a separate commission is required.
