True. How about John McCain, he's a republican. It would be interesting to see WH's and some connected republicans' reactions if that were to be proposed...

That said, since he is in the senate and not house, that might also not be possible. What are the investigating powers of the senate compared to the house?

Weren't you a Trump fan, earlier on?

You must be mistaken me with someone else.  As most Europeans I can't stand the guy.

Is the smell from the swamp getting gut wrenchingly smelly enough yet?

Trump administration sought to block Sally Yates from testifying to Congress on Russia

The Trump administration sought to block former acting attorney general Sally Yates from testifying to Congress in the House investigation of links between Russian officials and Donald Trumps presidential campaign, The Washington Post has learned, a position that is likely to further anger Democrats who have accused Republicans of trying to damage the inquiry.

According to letters The Post reviewed, the Justice Department notified Yates earlier this month that the administration considers a great deal of her possible testimony to be barred from discussion in a congressional hearing because the topics are covered by the presidential communication privilege

Well as Nunes has abruptly cancelled the hearings that were to include Yates and the other Intel personnel this week, then we remain in the dark...........for now. Not sure how much longer Nunes can survive and not sure why the Republicans are continuing to back Trump when he is clearly not only out of his depth, but more crooked than could have possibly been believed.

                    By looking closely at what Comey has said and done in the past 10 months, it's clear he's a partisan Republican.  Several of his important decisions have been subjectively geared to prop up Trump.  He's tarnishing the FBI's image and should be kicked out of office.

                        What has the House Intelligence committee done since the open hearing with Comey and NSA chief? It's been several weeks and they've done nothing, unless you count Nunes' ridiculous antics.  

 

                  Do Republican partisan ass-kissers think they're fooling the American public?  Ok granted, they're fooling the easily-duped Trump voters, but they're not fooling reasonable people, who comprise the majority of Americans.

 

                        Republicans think they can put up a smoke screen to shield the prez, and all Americans are supposed to fall for the ruse.  But it's an anti-American ruse, and we're not amused.   There's gonna be some big pay-back.  Either that, or the US is going to continue to slip down the slippery slope to mediocrity and increasingly become the laughing stock of the rest of the world.  

 

                   Already, if you mention Trump's name to any foreigner who follows the news, you'll likely get a roll of the eyes, a grinning wince, and some comment amounting to, "what a dunce that man is."

Republicans (on both house committees) are focused on leaks. Leaks are important but certainly not a priority, IMO.

 

Democrats on finding out what the Russians did.

 

Jason Chaffetz (House "Oversight"), after countless Benghazi and email "investigations", wants to get out of the swamp.

 

Some sort of independent prosecutor/commission is needed but that won't happen.

 

Hopefully the FBI will make some headway leading to indictments? It sounds as though they've got more than enough traitors lined up, some of whom will flip/sing and rat out others.

There are some rumours that EU member states have intercepted concrete evidence for the Russian connections.

 

If we are lucky there will be major news released later on. Strong enough so that even republicans can't turn their heads away.

An off topic deflection post about the possible Russian influence in the upcoming French election has been removed. There's probably a topic somewhere here in the World News section regarding the upcoming French election.  Please continue there.

                    Nunes is a slimeball that even a convention of slimeballs would call a slimeball.  He won't recuse himself (from the House Intelligence), but he will only 'step aside' for a little while. He's also slimming Ryan in the process.  Ryan already has so much slime dripping from him that I'm surprised he can walk down steps without sliding.   Republicans should face reality and rename their coven:  The Slimeball Party.  

 

                    At their well-financed (by corporations and lobbyists) new-nomenclature party, they can have a punch bowl filled with snot, and booger appetizers on the side, each with a toothpick.

The Steele dossier just won't die. It keeps coming back stronger and stronger.

 

The court papers say Steele decided to pass on the information he had collected because it was “of considerable importance in relation to alleged Russian interference in the US presidential election”, that it “had implications for the national security of the US and the UK” and “needed to [be] analysed and further investigated/verified”.

 

UK was given details of alleged contacts between Trump campaign and Moscow

I watched the first part of the inquiry - it was long and drawn out.   No surprise, there were two factions among the inquisitors:  There were the Republicans (chairman and his majority of committee members, all old white men) who only cared about leaks.

The other side were Democrats (minority of members, women, blacks, whites) who were concerned about finding out who broke laws.

 

 

Dude, once again we read your "prejudice" toward old white men. 

 

What is your problem with "owm" I'm an old white man. You are an old white man. A great many TV members are in that same demographic.

 

Sounds like you are accusing us of breaking laws. Grow up!
