The Repugs are doing this and they are doing it because he is a criminal who was found out. Comey is a Republican, Rosenstein is a life long Republican and Mueller is a life long Republican. Trump keeps telling you dimwits that these men are Democrats, they aren't, they are Republicans. By the way, all the judges that OKed the FISA Warrent against Carter Page...all of the judges appointed by republicans. Your pathetic, lord and master, lies to you, same as he lies to all of us.

This is worse then Watergate,, and it will destroy a major political party, because it ensnares a Democrat President.

It has already been established that trump does not lie.
He simply uses alternative facts.
"Spygate" is chock-full of interesting alternative facts.

Several of key figures in Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia, and the FBI was provided with information that the campaign knew Russia was working to interfere in the election, leading them to investigate. Nothing about the FBI's use of an "informant" – who was not a "SPY" – constitutes overreach, and it was certainly not illegal. There is no evidence the investigation was in any way politically motivated, and the "reports" cited by Trump are nothing more than bad-faith speculation from Fox News personalities. Nearly two years after the FBI began the "phony" investigation, over 20 individuals and businesses have been indicted, multiple key members of Trump's campaign have pled guilty and information suggesting criminality within Trump's campaign continues to emerge.
I would like to rename this bullshitgate

So trump is right this could very well be bigger then the only gate scandle that matters...."Watergate "

There are, of course, Republicans in the DEEP STATE. That is how incredibly corrupt the system is.

Lincoln's Gettysburg Address ended with, "... that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Today's version...that government of the FASCIST GLOBALISTS, by the FASCISTS GLOBALISTS and for the FASCIST GLOBALISTS shall cause the many people to perish.

Unless "Pornogate" or "Gropegate" gets him first, "Kremlingate" will no doubt bring the Carnival Barker down, in spite of his fake claims of what you term "bullshitgate"!!

Satanic darkness always exposes itself. The darkness the Communist takeover of the Democrat Party in the 1970s represents is a perfect example. Every time they exercise their totalitarian concepts, they show their own conspiratorial, damaging behavior.

That is BS. There was OVERT collusion between the Democrat Party, GPS Fusion, a foreign spy and Russians. Millions of dollars have changed hands and Herr Mueller has not bothered to even look at GPS Fusions records.

The FBI was told point blank by the DNC that the DNC Server could not be accessed by FBI's own IT experts, to verify Russian hacking and the FBI was ordered by the GLOBALISTS to back off. Yes, it is political and a 2nd SPECIAL Counsel, not corrupt like Mueller, is going to get to the bottom of this story.

And by the way, who was actually working with the TRUMP Campaign and Russia at the same time?
Those indictments and guilty pleas have nothing to do with collusion between the campaign and Russia, but concern process issues and events happening prior to the campaign.

Yes, a Fake Investigation, now known as SPYGATE, has the rats leaving a sinking ship.

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/02/08/fbi...

"The list of officials frequently discussed in the texts who are no longer in their jobs seems to grow by the day."

"It includes former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by Trump; former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe; Comey’s chief of staff, James Rybicki; FBI General Counsel James Baker; as well as Strzok, who was booted off the special counsel investigation and sent to a job in the FBI’s personnel division."

I had to post this. Just for a laugh. Cute video, even spying on animals, as long as no animal gets hurt, and we can learn from their behavior, I'm all for this.

ABCNews has continued for two days the false narrative of "there is no evidence of a spy in the Trump campaign." We're going to shove that false narrative straight up their colluding ass.

That's not convincing. Lots of muckity mucks over lots of decades in D.C. have had lots of diplomatic, personal, political and financial ties with foreign governments, businesses, personages.

And it's not convincing because the central premise - collusion - is not a criminal anything. It's a made up word. They didn't use "conspiracy" because, of course, that has an actual definition. A standard that can't be met in this case.

What is notable here is that a number of people around Ill Duce Trump's Administration did not reveal income sources from a number of foreign governments, as required. In my mind that speaks to sketchy business practices by Ill Duce Trump and those associated with him, not to being a "puppet of Putin," or whatever that non word "collusion" is supposed to be claiming.

This is yet another one of Trump's deranged fantasies. There is zero evidence of a mole in his disgusting campaign.
Remember the 40 million people who showed up at his swearing in? Or the tens of thousand of local Muslims who cheered after 9/11? Or the fictional "investigators" whom he sent to Kenya to unearth "evidence" of Obama's alleged Kenyan birth?

How many fuckingimes do you have to hear his lying bullshit before you realize he's crapping all over you?

What "Russian effort" to save Ill Duce Trump's Presidency? How has that expressed itself? From where do you know this, you McCarthyite dolt? Be specific.

Your line was that either "Russian hacking" or "Russian collusion" got Ill Duce Trump elected. Your line has not been that Putin is composing Ill Duce Trump's furious tweets. Remember?

You idiots are warmongering against Russia in order to achieve some puerile partisan result which you will never see - because it is Mullah Pence who is the Vice President standing by, not Hillary Clinton.

BTW, Mueller won't be touching Ill Duce Trump on "collusion," if only because "collusion" is not a known crime in any statute.
