    1. Well, it has become clear that Obama, along with Hillary and others participated in a scheme to use the intelligence services and the justice department to smear an opposing political candidate using the powers of his office. They certainly belong in jail.

      Are you saying that voters in those states are so partisan that they will support such an abuse of power?

      1. As a teacher once like to say: “Clear as mud.”

        At least three investigations have turned up nothing regarding your allegations. All run by Republicans.

        Mueller, IG, Dunham. Add in Senate. And why not Benghazi…makes as much sense as the the conspiracy.

        Meanwhile the White gang arrests are showing a lot more than just a beer fueled plot. “Trump’s gangs” are moving ahead with full presidential approval.

        Arrest the sitting president for trying to overthrow his own government? Better to beat him and the GOP soundly at the polls.

        1. RE: “At least three investigations have turned up nothing regarding your allegations. All run by Republicans.”

          • Mueller exonerated president Trump of all allegations arising from “Russiagate.”
          • IG documented abuse of FISA process resulting in criminal referrals (e.g., Kevin Clinesmith).

          • Durham investigation ongoing. Grand jury empanelled. Work products unknown.

          “Turned up nothing” is false. Morover, recently released documents indicate an active conspiracy against Trump, which is above and beyond the miscreant behavior already known.

            “Mueller exonerated president Trump of all allegations arising from “Russiagate.””
            That is a total falsehood. Failure to find the smoking gun evidence is not exoneration. Especially with the witnesses lying and stonewalling. The Mueller investigation proved NUMEROUS crimes by the Trump campaign and their Russian co-conspirators. Trump’s ONLY defense is that he was clueless about what his campaign was doing.

            Clinesmith : Whatever INDIVIDUAL crime one over-zealous agent committed is not evidence to support the racist claim that President Obama should be put in jail.

            Durham “investigation” has already had major resignations due to political pressure which, by the way, is a far more serious crime than anything that Clinesmith pleaded to. But whatever it eventually reports, it has reported nothing so far so again, the racist claim that President Obama should be in jail has not support from that quarter either.

            Meanwhile, people like you look the other way as our Commander-in-chief has become a raving lunatic. Pathetic. Why do you hate America?

            If that were true as a matter of fact, Trump could have been impeached. He wasn’t. The House never even tried to impeach him on the basis of the Mueller investigation. In other words, Mueller in fact exonerated the president, an occurance that is not turning up “nothing.”

            RE: “Whatever INDIVIDUAL crime one over-zealous agent committed is not evidence to support the racist claim that President Obama should be put in jail.”

            It is proof the IG investigation led to criminal referals, which is the point made.

            RE: “But whatever [the Durham investigation] eventually reports, it has reported nothing so far so again.”

            That’s what I wrote. It is false to say Durham has “turned up nothing” because we don’t know what he has turned up.

          3. For the literalists I will rephrase my “turned up nothing” to “turned up nothing of consequence”.

            That is the important point.

            Mueller showed all kinds of improprieties and obstruction of justice. Barr just declined to do anything about it.

            Meanwhile #LIBERATE and “Stand back and stand by” are the rallying cries of the white thugs all provided by our treasonous president.

            IMHO

            Fair enough, but still false:

            • Durham’s work product is unknown.

            • Criminal referals from the IG report are certainly consequential, to say nothing of legislative reforms that may result.

            • Barr’s decision to shelve the Mueller report was legal, and also counts as a consequence.Congress also decided to shelve the report, as if it was never written.

      2. “They certainly belong in jail.”

        Good grief. That is all I will say out of fear to the wrath of Mr. Roberts should I post what I really think of people who spread stuff like this.

        Let me say instead how amazing I find your unique ability to check your mind at the door and pretend to validate Trump’s demented ravings such as those on Fox Business News yesterday. Are you a cynical propagandist or have you managed to convince yourself? Either way, quite amazing.

        I wonder why they kept those “smears” so well hidden until after the 2016 election? With all the bullshit and Russian disinformation you repeat, you never seem to have an answer for this basic question.

        As for black voters in South Carolina and Georgia it is not partisanship that will help get them to the polls. It is Trump’s egregiously race-baiting lies which I believe to be a deep and personally felt insult to many African-Americans.

  1. EXTRA.

    In addition to hosting the Limbaugh show, the president will sit for a live interview with Tucker Carlson tonight, according to ZeroHedge.

    1. Great!

      Every time he speaks his “mind” on Fox News (he is afraid of Rachel Maddow, obviously) his polling drops another point or two. IMHO, his demand that President Obama be put in jail might be the final nail in the political coffin of his premier little toady – Lindsay Graham. Keep up the good work, Donnie.

      Is that a fact, or just a factoid?

      1. It seems to be a fact. You know what I think of Trump and you can believe me when I say . . . Great! I mean it most sincerely because whether it is a fact or not, my belief is that he will only harm himself by further exposure, especially now when his derangement is off the charts because of desperation, illness or drugs.

        As far as Rachel goes, he is wise to refuse to be interviewed by her.

        Apparently it is not a demonstrable fact, meaning existing outside of one person’s imagination.Without evidence, then, it seems to be just a factoid.

        1. Fact, factoid, opinion?

          Call it what you want, but your claim that it is not demonstrable is a little exaggerated. At the debate Trump had the biggest audience of his Presidency and was allowed very free rein to express what was on his mind. Polling following that debate showed him slipping from around 6% down overall to about 10% overall. And that was before his illness fiasco and his latest deranged rants. So again I say, give him the mike. Let him speak.

          You said, “Every time he speaks his ‘mind’ on Fox News…polling drops another point or two.”

          You are a long way from substantiating that claim.

          1. There’s no debate. I asked a simple question to which I received a simple answer.

            Your statement was “something fictitious or unsubstantiated that is presented as fact.” A factoid.

          2. Gee, I dunno, when you challenge the evidence behind a statement seems a lot like a debate to me.

            But whatever. You proud folks with your “Lock ’em up” now extending to President Barack Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden have gone so far off the rails that it is even more obvious than ever just how pointless a debate or discussion or exchange (whatever you want to call it) with any of you actually is.

    3. And a Fox News contributing Doctor will be conducting an interview. And because he is all knowing (.i.e, Trumpist, see Scott Atlas as another example) he will be able to tell Trump that he is not contagious and he should feel free to campaign as he sees fit.

      Interesting how that works. When psychologists have suggested some sort of mental issue with Mr. Trump, his supporters say it can’t be true becasue they have not examined him personally. But a dollar will get you a donut (not sure where) that when this little side show is over, Trump supporters all over the country will scream that a doctor said he was just fine.

      Makes one want to grab an airsickness bag, just in case.
