Former Trump advisor Roger Stone has been indicted by the Mueller special counsel and arrested on charges of obstruction, false statements, and witness tampering.
Ya know, we don't agree on a lot of things, but I like the sound of this. Seriously.I'm thinking DC as a whole might start looking pretty empty....
Ya know.... I can back that. Personally never liked the concept of "career politician". Yeah, compensate them for services to country.... but nobody in politics should be getting rich. To me, that becomes a conflict of interest and leads to many selling influence or votes for $$$, and we wonder how we get here....Ya know, we don't agree on a lot of things, but I like the sound of this. Seriously.
Let's hit the reset button, start over. Get rid of the two party nonsense, and lets elect officials that truly care about their constituents, the American people. Easier said than done, I know, but hey, a man can dream.
I can see where that term could put a bad taste in people's mouths. But, I'm on of those people that truly loves this country and I wouldn't be opposed to a career in politics. I've thought about running for Congress one day. To me, it would be a great honor to serve the people of my congressional district and try to improve the country. I'd love the chance to put my mark on trying to improve the country. Of course, I'm not drawn to it for the money, and I was in shock when I discovered that a Congressperson's salary was 174k a year. No wonder we've got so many people just trying to line their pockets.Personally never liked the concept of "career politician".
I don't think investigating and charging people who committed crimes is a waste of money, but what do I know.Yep and there was more tax dollar wasted on this little arrest, then was spent on the investigation into the Vegas shooting and Florida HS shooting combined! ( Mule-er ) is a joke!!
I think what he means is the proportion compared to money spent on crimes with actual, no-longer-living victims. In that regard, I'd agree with him. I don't think we needed SWAT and all these federal goons to arrest ONE guy who said, if called on, would have surrendered willingly. Judge even let him walk with a signature because he's not a flight risk. C'mon now. That's like sending that SWAT unit after Elian.... the kid during the Clinton era? Yeah. Obnoxious and highly unnecessary.I don't think investigating and charging people who committed crimes is a waste of money, but what do I know.
This is pretty much how I feel about it.I've been watching for about 30-40 minutes so far, and I can't help but come to the conclusion that Cohen is a liar. I have no doubt he's telling the truth about much of what he's testifying right now, but he just comes across as an untruthful person to me. Although, some of the things he is talking about are quite interesting, like him receiving payments from the President well after Trump was in office, and supposedly giving up control of his businesses.
I really do hope that they end up looking into some of the massive abuses of power from those questionable officials in the old Obama administration. It will be a colossal embarrassment if they don't even make any effort into looking at those bad FISA applications, the people involved, and other issues that have been revealed in the 22 months since the whole Mueller investigation started.So I believe it's safe to assume we can now start looking at varying degrees of abuses of power by former President Obama officials, particularly in regard to FISA's. Since we are all about allowing for due process and investigating credible reports of criminal activity.... right?
As much as I am enjoying the fact that what I thought is true, and that is Trump didn't collude with the Russians to win the Presidency. It was Hillary and her teams complete and total ignorance that lost her the Presidency. I am happy to see our Democracy at work and our checks and balances to keep the President in line so that no matter what we think is true or not true, our Democracy prevailed. That is what I feel everyone should be happy about. Because at the end of the day, the Russians goal is to destroy our Democracy at all costs.So. Mueller submitted his report to AG Barr.
President Trump gets to stay President for another 2-6 years, because early reports strongly indicate no collusion.
Imagine. My. Shock.
So I believe it's safe to assume we can now start looking at varying degrees of abuses of power by former President Obama officials, particularly in regard to FISA's. Since we are all about allowing for due process and investigating credible reports of criminal activity.... right? No? Huh.
That’s how I feel tbh, I hate the guy more than I could ever express but I won’t deny that it’s nice to know that a sitting president didn’t collude with a historically malicious country.Not a fan of Trump by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm happy he was cleared of serious wrongdoing and I trust Mueller as a respectable investigator.
If you operate based on our own legal system, it absolutely does. If their was collusion, there would have been SOMETHING to work with. Instead, the investigation found "no evidence of collusion". So in that aspect, yes, he is innocent, as are all people until proven guilty, something everyone would do well to remember. Pretty sure CNN/MSNBC are going to learn that the hard way to the tune of 250 MILLION USD (for a separate but similar transgression), and personally, now that this investigation is over, I'd like to have a team dig into what started this whole thing that essentially wasted millions upon millions of taxpayer dollars, and have those responsible foot the bill.From what I’m seeing though, while it doesn’t prove him guilty of anything, it doesn’t prove him innocent either.
So he might have been careless, seems like similar wording that Comey used in reference to Hillary's server debacle.This was what I was referring to. A no on collusion, but nothing is clear one way or the other on other things such as obstruction https://apnews.com/3053d226815e4c8d905322ea1d8cd1a1
Actually, it's quite clear. Crystal clear. If he obstructed, he would have been charged. You sound like CNN and MSNBC. You're all floating in the river of denial.This was what I was referring to. A no on collusion, but nothing is clear one way or the other on other things such as obstruction https://apnews.com/3053d226815e4c8d905322ea1d8cd1a1
