I got news for you, Donald: The FBI uses informants ALL THE TIME. Sometimes they are undercover agents sent in by the FBI to infiltrate criminal organizations, but more often they are just people who realize they are involved unwittingly with some criminal activities and report it to the FBI. Either way, there is nothing bad about being the informant or the FBI. If there was an FBI informant in your campaign it suggests there were real crimes going on by members of your campaign.

Yes Donald, the crimes of your campaign and administration are bigger than Watergate. More people are going to prison for longer sentences, because there are a lot more crimes.

I know this thread was sort of moribund, but I needed to vent today. There are two things that occurred that I had to address: first, it appears that Rudy Giuliani has conceded that there will be enough evidence of misconduct to impeach the President (As if we didn't believe that anyway); second, Trump may have set a record for lies today. The latest is so brazen it's despicable - that Democrats are responsible for HIS administration's obscene behavior toward immigrants and asylum seekers. It is also, by the way, a clear violation of international law.

From many years of hearing about Trump, now President Donald (Pseudologia fantastica and mythomania)Trump, violations of local, national or international law will not bother him. After all, he is "The Donald" and is above it all.


Vote this November, vote Independent or Democrat, just vote to curb this rabid slug.

Trying to curb Mr Trump is rather pointless. I suspected as much after a few days of his "presidency". I could see it happening in the Trump thread. It would eventually consume Doug's servers. Mr Trump owns the media ... I mean he owns it. Trump 24/7.

How would it be possible to find a breath of fresh honest air when he sucked all the oxygen from the room?

I still can not find any evidence of crumbling political support for Mr Trump. If the Dems take the House and file charges the Senate would not convict.

Folks ... gotta take it to the box

I think the only thing that would work would be to give him a lobotomy --- or perhaps confiscating all his bank accounts and assets would have the same effect.

Article in Salon ("Evidence is growing that Trump doesnít have the votes to survive impeachment in the Senate") argues I am wrong.

I could be wrong ... wouldn't be the first time ... I'll temporize and keep my ear to the ground

OMG, Trumpís pardons show his twisted brand of mercy. This has got to stop. I no longer think impeachment is NOT an option. This level of naked corruption has no parallel outside of banana republics and Russia.

I think you have to look at life as a Republican in Congress after Trump is impeached with a huge list of valid reasons, but then a naked partisan failure to convict in the Senate. Could they ever go back home and face their constituents at Town Meetings? Would their home offices get firebombed? Would they ever get reelected for ANY office? Would their Wikipedia entries, web sites, and social media get trashed every day for the rest of their lives? I think it would be political suicide personally and destroy the GOP brand for decades. They would become the equivalent of the American Nazi Party in most people's minds.
