Ill Duce Trump was correct to fire James "Oh Lordy!" Comey, but that correct firing has not helped Ill Duce Trump in light of what came along to replace that fired personage.

"To make matters worse, Strozk, McCabe and Comey deliberately withheld information from a judge that evidence they used to obtain a surveillance warrant against a Trump campaign adviser originated with a former British spy whose work was funded by the Clinton campaign."

I believe that is a long de bunked lie. The source, the partisan source, of that information was noted in the paperwork's footnotes/back matter, I believe.

That writer glosses over the Clinton Foundation specifics, and that surely has to be for partisan reasons, conscious or unconscious.

The _Clinton Foundation_ got a lot of money from overseas speeches by various people, mostly Clintons. These monies to the Clinton Foundation were initially reported by the Clinton Foundation as donations. It turned out that those monies should have been reported by the Clinton Foundation as revenues. It was re stated as such. There is no genuine issue here. The right has nothing on this Clinton Foundation "slush fund" fantasy claim. It's another Birther-Benghazi whisper campaign, the shaky specifics of which the "pizza parlor basement child sex" right wing morons have absolutely no knowledge of.

Robert Mueller has converted more Democrats to Republicans in the last 8 months then anyone else. He is totally incompetent, a typical Democrat kisser, and a man who was ready to trade his reputation for a few thousand bucks.

The fact is that they had to use the dossier as basis to obtain a warrant on Page and without it they would have never been able to obtain that warrant. True.

The fact is they never verified any of the collusion allegations in the dossier before presenting it to the judge despite FBI laws stating everything in FISA warrants MUST be verified and vetted before presenting. True.

The fact is the dossier was paid and intended to be political opposition research. Basically dirt and garbage. They dressed the thing up like a intelligence document. They NEVER said the Clinton campaign paid for it. There was a tiny footnote that said "We SPECULATE it MAY have political origins". It said nothing about the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Facts always eviscerate you low IQ lefties.

Lulz
FBI can't admit dossier was main reason they got FISA warrant because it makes them look bad and that they working for democrats so their official excuse is that coffee boy papadopolous had bragged to a Australian wanker at the bar they had the goods on Clinton from some Russian dude, not enough evidence for all this crap.. obama and Clintons are behind all this bs and they belong in jail

I''ll dumb it down.

The right wing lie (among the unending blizzard of right wing lies) repeated by that "impartial" lawyer who wrote the article is that the political nature and funding of the "dossier" was not revealed during the court process. That is a long debunked lie, I believe. The origin of the dossier was disclosed to the court at the time.(This is true regardless of the accuracy or sketchiness of the "dossier.")

The writer'a mention of The Clinton Foundation reporting revenues and donations in error was similarly, uh, incomplete, at best.

I can't imagine why this _Fox_ commentator would get facts wrong or incomplete...the right wing being so very, very intellectually honest and everything....

Wrong. Trump has created more Democrats. Mr. Mueller is a Republican.

Your post contradicts its own self, in true scrambled, white supremacist fashion.

The DNC and the Hillary campaign apparently paid for the sketchy "dossier." This fact of paid oppo research was not withheld from the court. The claim that it was withheld from the court is another right wing distortion.

Chris Murphy’s “baby steps” advocacy and Nancy Pelosi’s “slippery slope” enthusiasm prove the original goal of incremental to total (Hitler) disarmament is still being pursued. So what are the democrats NOT saying? Answer: America's Constitution is being held hostage and blackmailed, and "We will keep killing children, until you hand over your guns!"
False flag attacks doesn't mean it's fake and people don't die. It means people are set up to die for a political agenda. Time to wake up! https://www.ammoland.com/2018/05/weapons-used...

You have delightfully if predictably contradicted your claim in your post 14, and you have no idea what the judge "would have" done.

Everything you "believe" has turned out to be so wrong, it should be embarrassing to you. Now, even your "Operation Crossfire" has come to bite you in the ass. "Crossfire Hurricane" now exposes all of your efforts to pander falsehoods about Trump and his campaign to be the efforts of Obama and his Communist appointees in various Federal agencies.

This mid-term may be the first time in history the party out of office will lose seats instead of pick up enough to "take back the House." I have never heard perfect strangers in public areas so interested in voting they start political discussions with anyone standing around. They are so disgusted with what the Democrats did in 2016. It is wonderful to see. OMG, we took the train from Chicago, and it was like a big Republican political meeting. It was all about Democrats protecting the Terrorist gang. MS13
