One of the lamest press conferences I've ever watched. But at least he's officially reclused himself from any Russian investigations.

Less than 40 days into a 1,460 day term. That's less than 3%. :laughing:

If Frowny wants to exploit a typo then I'm happy for him.

The point about that is that you kept underlining things and telling him to listen, when you had made a pretty damn big mistake yourself. It looked ... um, how do I say this? How do you Americans put it? Douchey?

Here's your 2017 "Get out of Jail Free" card.

(but if I chose to rebut you I'd start with the irony that you reffering to me as the douche, when the discussion was between me and Frownland, the absolute KING of MB douchiness, is, for want of a better word, funny?)

Witchhunt? White House leaks story. Sessions recluses himself from being able to protect carrottop from any Russia hearings. Sessions still in major hot water. Flynn has already been fired.

Your definitions of pointless and nowhere, are pointless.

If allegations are all you've got (which seems to be the case in regards to Sessions), then my definitions of "pointless" and "nowhere" are all you are going to end up with I'm afraid. Which is where a lot of the media seem to be headed currently.

If you actually look at the story logically, Sessions had more than 25 conversations with foreign ambassadors as a senior member of the Armed Services Committee, including the British, Korean, Japanese, Polish, Indian, Chinese, Canadian, Australian and German ambassadors, not just Russia.

I'm not seeing any legitimate evidence of collusion here. Or am I just not cynical enough?

Dude, it's always just allegations. Lewinski, WMDs, BENGHAZI!!!!! Emails, etc.

Bottom line is Sessions can't cover carrotop's ass moving forward over the Russia investigations and his credibility has taken a huge hit. Top lawyer in the whole country is stupid enough to put himself in this position? Ya, I feel real comfortable about the guy's competence.

Nice talking point. How about the counter that he was the only member of the Arms Services Committee to have a private meeting with the Russian dude who the US intelligence community considers to be the top Russian spy and spy recruiter in the United States, during a time when everyone was questioning Russia's involvement in hacking the US elections?

Your Trump apologist persona surfaces again.

And the hits keep coming. Why the **** is Trump's son-in-law meeting with the dude in the middle of the maelstrom? Drip, drip, drip.

More Trump advisers disclose meeting with Russia's ambassador - CNNPolitics.com

Lol okay. What private meeting? Cite sources. At least if you did that, you'd be doing better than the DNC. :D

All you've demonstrated to me is that you operate based on a strong sense of confirmation bias and that you'll believe absolutely anything in favor of it regardless of the greater context. I hate Trump, but it's been months and all the Russia-phobia has amounted to nothing but jack squat. All of these people met with dozens of different officials with different countries during the time periods listed in that article. Are they colluding with China as well then, a country that actually HAS successfully breached and compromised the federal government within the last few years?

One of the meetings was a private conversation between Sessions and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that took place in September in the senator’s office, at the height of what U.S. intelligence officials say was a Russian cyber campaign to upend the U.S. presidential race.
And don't worry. We're less than 40 days into Trump's term. The FBI has plenty of time moving forward. The Sessions bit is just another splash of gas on the fire.

No. It's very urgent to destroy and dismantle this administration immediately. Once he gets us involved in a major war his executive powers will really be almost completely unchecked.

That was my thought when I saw the headline too. Expect a post from Chula blaming Bush.

idk that perjury is enough to disqualify someone it's the same argument that Bill broke the law by lying about receiving a bj

just politics, but also Jeff Sessions is scum of the earth and should drop dead

Chula Vista 03-04-2017 04:19 PM

With each passing hour Trump is looking more and more like a ridiculous idiot for his 6:30 AM tweet this morning making false accusations.

In order to get a wiretap you have to go through the FBI and document the reasons why. Whoever is the current president has access to all FBI records so Trump was 1st grade stupid to make these claims considering he should be able to back them up - but obviously can't.

Even his staff have been quiet in the last 12 hours, since they were completely blindsighted by the Donald's latest tantrum, and can't come up with any easy spin.

Commander in Chief? :laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing:

Considering what we've seen over the last eight years (and even before that during the Bush administration) I think it might be a teensy bit naive of you to think the U.S. government wouldn't wiretap citizens of interest illegally. Where Trump is off base is assuming he was the ONLY one being wiretapped. :D

The Obama Administration did a fantastic job expanding the NSA especially during their last weeks in office.
https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/...gence-sharing/

As for the Donald saying he was being spied on by Obama and his administration during his campaign, it wouldn't surprise me. Whether it was deliberate or not is up for debate, but we are all being watched by our government. It's unconstitutional and has been admitted by our former president that we are all being watched. Mass surveillance is no longer a secret and is a huge money pit that doesn't even help our nations security. **** the NSA.

elphenor 03-04-2017 06:36 PM

He almost certainly was spied on but it's a complete hand wave

It's like invoking the first black president will be a get out of jail free card until the end of time for their constituents

Chula Vista 03-04-2017 09:16 PM

He specifically said PHONE TAP.

14 hours later and still no response from his staff. That says a lot.

Proof or no proof, he heard something from someone that raised some alarm bells about unauthorized surveillance and I guess it freaked him out. *points to last few posts in regards to the NSA, etc.*

I'm not being an apologist in this case...I'm just saying I wouldn't be surprised if his accusations turned out to be true based on a variety of things that we've been seeing over the last decade.
