But Hillary's not the sitting prez, Scott. The pro-Trump folks keep deflecting and conveniently omitting that fact by constantly throwing her name out there in response to every allegation made towards President Trump.
Even if Hillary/her campaign was under investigation and she was eventually charged, it would not create the Constitutional crisis that bringing up charges on a sitting president would. Would it create a circus? Yes, but that's it.
I will say this ... If you simply substituted the name "Clinton" for "Trump" in every story relating to "Russiagate", the impeachment process would have already been started for Obstruction of Justice by the Pub congress and every single Trump supporter on this board would be screaming for her head.
The confirmation bias here is ridiculous. I am genuinely shocked at how tribal this country has become.
Smart people have shown themselves totally willing to ignore all this very strong evidence of wrongdoing - the Prez/his campaign has been under investigation since last year. General Flynn, Trump's NSA, was allegedly compromised by the Russians, fired almost 3 weeks after the Prez was advised, and just subpoenaed by the Senate Intel committee yesterday. The Senate Intel Committee's request to the Treasury's Financial Crimes Division for financial info on Trump and his people. Trump's sons publicly confirming his family's revenue streams from Russia. And of course, the firing of Dir Comey shortly after his office requested more funds from the Deputy AG to "ramp up" the Russia investigation - citing conspicuously suspicious reasoning that Trump disapproved of Comey's handling of the Clinton email investigation in July. Lol. Wow ...
But the idea - the slightest notion - that Trump and/or his people may have done something illegal here remains totally preposterous to the MAGAs. "Nothing to see here!" "No evidence!" "Fake news!" "Not even any smoke!"
Yet they'll believe wholeheartedly, without question, and without any even circumstantial evidence other than what they read on some blogs, that former First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is running a kiddie sex-ring out of the basement of a pizza joint in Orlando. It's absolutely stunning to me ...
Independent council needs to be appointed to spearhead the ongoing investigations if for no other reason than to put the issues to rest. Let's appoint Ken Starr if we have to. I don't really care. The quicker this gets done, the quicker we as a nation can move on. Right now, it's tearing us apart.
With 2018 looming in the not-so-distant future, it seems at this point that more than a few Pubs are coming around to this conclusion too. Many are weighing whether or not it would be wise to remain handcuffed to what may ultimately be a dead hooker of a president. With regards to the Comey firing, many Pubs are saying that the Admin's account of events seem ridiculous or they seem to be silently thinking it. I guess we'll see.
Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick ....
