It's an anonymously sourced report that there might have been a person who read a memo somebody might have written about what some analysts say could be interpreted as thin gruel.

There wasn't a single Democratic leader or pundit who remotely suggested that Trump colluded with the Russians.


*TAKE 2*


At least these investigations have lifted the cloud of suspicion that had descended upon the Presidency.


*TAKE 3*


We may never fully know if the President did collude with the Russians to undermine our Democracy. What's that old legal canard...."Just because you're found innocent doesn't mean you're not guilty. O.J Simpson...Casey Anthony....and now Donald Trump".


I've got a slew of off-ramps for the Dems in case this goes South.

Yep, the media are insance.

Look at this story:

http://dailycaller.com/2017/05/23/trump-retains-personal-attorney-as-russia-crisis-engulfs-white-house/?utm_campaign=atdailycaller&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=Social

Down at the end we read THIS:

"The White House has not confirmed Kasowitz’s hiring.

The Post reports other attorneys under consideration included former Solicitor General Theodore Olson and Robert J. Giuffra of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP."

======================

So what The Daily Caller is reporting on is what the Washington Post is reporting on, and the White House not only hasn't confirmed it, but the Washington Post thinks there might be other attorneys chosen, instead.

How is this a story? Furthermore, what is the point of sticking "disgraced" in front of Bill O'Reilly's name? Was anything proven?

Chris Wallace to the pretty FOX reporter Jenna just seconds ago.

The ticker below the screen reads "Pres Trump: Alleged Leaks Coming Out Of Govt Agencies are Deeply Troubling and that is the topic being discussed.

So Jenna asks Wallace this question about identifying and firing the leakers:

Jenna: ... Are these Intelligence Officials that are purposely trying to embarrass the President perhaps, while he's overseas, with these leaks?

Chris Wallace: I, I, I doubt that. I just think that what you're seeing is a complete breakdown in culture...It just seems that there are folks, whether it's in Law Enforcement or in the Intelligence communities here in the United States that aren't able to keep secrets, and that's part of their job.
--------------------------

So the leakers aren't trying to embarrass Trump at all. They simply happen to be lousy secret keepers.

I can't imagine why Neil Cavuto and Rep McCaul can be so stupid as to think there is some enemy action in these leaks when we just learned from Chris Wallace that it is simply guys unable to keep secrets and they have no agenda whatever to embarrass the President. FOX needs to fire this dummy Cavuto and get more Chris Wallace type geniuses. No wonder their ratings are going down the toilet.

daddy,

Does Representative McCaul know who is leaking? Then he should call up the President and TELL him.

If this is just his version of Miss Marple-type speculation, then he shouldn't make public statements like he knows.

Captain Hate

Tammy just made the point that the usual GOPe cowards, including that skirt chasing asshole Mark Sanford, are blasting Gianforte while the underlying "facts" are still changing.

Gentlejim

The fact that the officer issued a criminal summons to Gianforte instead of making a custodial arrest tells me that this is a big nothingburger. Assault/battery falls under the warrantless arrest exception. In these cases if probable cause exists for arrest a custodial arrest is made. When a case is referred for a warrant or a summons is issued it is usually a situation where PC does exist, but it might be light, a case of mutual battery or even self defense.

I can tell you that if a person grabs my wrist, as I've seen mentioned happened to Gianforte, they will get a physical response they won't like. In Indiana grabbing someone's wrist without their permission is battery or simple assault as titled in Montana. A person has the right to reasonable self defense.

daddy

Still way behind but On Trish's FOX Business opener I just learned that Teresa May and the Brits are pissed because what was leaked from our Intel guys were pictures, plus the name of the bomber, and a few other names perhaps.

I think this plays into Trump’s hands. With Teresa May making this a front and center issue Trump now has carte blanche to go after the Leakers immediately and harshly, and the Dem’s can’t sidetrack it as easily as they can sidetrack everything else. This means that the Deep Staters doing the Dem's dirty work can now be publicly hunted down and the justification is because Teresa May called for it, not that Trump is doing it for devious ulterior motives of doing it to stop Deep State whistle blowing patriots from revealing his Russian Collusion crimes.

Lop off heads please Mister President.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

KevlarKid,

This is another example of the National Review using snobbery as an excuse not to back someon, or more to the point, attack.

Why is it a disgrace? Should Hannity just clam up because the parents (no doubt with pressure from their democrat minder)ask him to? Why?

I also love the part about how it is hard to keep a bunch of people from talking about a conspiracy. In a certain way that's true, until a plot is revealed as being true.

If there is nothing to Seth Rich's murder, then why is everyone so desperate to get us to quit talking about it? Why is the only reward offered been from Julian Assange? Why not the DNC?

Also despicable is his inference that there is something to the Russia leaks.

And I also see the comments have become a magnet for NeverTrumpers and leftists.

BREAKING: 4th Circuit Appeals Court just upheld the ban agains press Trump's EO banning travel from 7 Islamic nations (i.e. the Muslim Ban)

Apparently of the 13 Judges on the panel when it was argued most were appointed by Dems). In upholding the Corts decision to block Trump's EO the ruling today says this:

The text of President Trump's Executive Order speaks with vague words of National Security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus, and discrimination...On balance we cannot say that the Government's asserted National Security interests outweighs the competing harm to plaintiffs of the likely Establishment Clause violation.

10 to 3 ruling with 2 recusing themselves.

ANother court sides with endangering American citizens in order to protect non-citizens.

This is ridiculous when SAUDI ARABIA won't take in Syrian refugees because they are a risk.

Next attack is on these morons.

Doesn't the President have the right to declare the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR terrorist supporters?

Out with all of them, I say.

I still say the best thing would be for Saudi Arabia to use the piles of money they throw around DC to help Trump. The first thing is to remove any funding they grant to Sierra Club, any foundations, any democrats. Put some money into a Saudi-US friendship organization. Run some ads on TV thanking the President (their videos for that conference were impressive). Buy a damn network. No political donations, of course, but there is still a lot they could do.
