    Can someone here please explain to me how we have gotten to the “special prosecutor” point? What is he even supposed to be investigating? Have these screeching zombies actually driven this to the point where the assistant AG goes this route? I’m not trying to be obtuse, I just asked the same question of my beyond brilliant, always reading, hubby. A coup is afoot, how do we convey that we are aware of it — with such force that the eyes are stopped mid-roll?

    • It is the “give them what the ask for” defense.
      Now the special prosecutor will investigate crimes, and it is going to be the crimes committed by the left.
      Trumped again you fools!

        Special counsel. Not prosecuter. Special counsel is under the direction of the DOJ. The AG can dictate the direction of the investigation.

      Mueller is not a “special prosecutor”. He is a special counsel and there is a difference.

        Yes…This will speed up process and put an official stamp when President Trump is found innocent…It’s a way of taking the Comey was fired for Russia off the burner and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstain has wide latitude to decide what gets prosecuted etc ….

      • i’m glad someone clarified this. There are people on this site who apparently don’t read very well, he is a special counsel not a special prosecutor because so far there is not anything to prosecute. People, slow down and read….

          Hard to slow down when there are 2,100 comments. If you get behind, you can forget catching up before midnight. And then we start all over again tomorrow.

          I understand their confusion –as I was very annoyed to see even on Fox earlier this evening banners and commentators incorrectly saying “Special Prosecutor”. Inexcusable and I do not think it was a mistake. Fake very fake news.

    Mr Putin said: “If the US administration deems it possible, we are ready to provide a transcript of the conversation between Mr Lavrov and Mr Trump in the US Senate and the US Congress in the event the American administration would want it, of course.”

    The Russian president has repeatedly denied Mr Trump passed secrets to Mr Lavrov and has dismissed the scandal engulfing the former real estate mogul as “political schizophrenia.”

    If we make donations through does he have to turn any of that over to the RNC? Anyone know?


    • Doogiesblog says:

      I’m somewhat worried about that myself. I received a fundraiser request and it still said “DJT for President.” I didn’t reply because I wondered who is in charge of it. NO MONEY TO REPUBLICAN PARTY is my motto. Only to PDJT!

      • dianeax says:

        Totally agree. Before I hang up on them, I tell RNC callers looking for pledges I’m only donating directly to tDJT until House and Senate get fully behind him, which will be never!


      • dianeax says:

        Here’s the answer. 😦


        As a reflection of support for President Trump by the American people, Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. today announced a one-day record for digital fundraising. The combined total for May 17 for the campaign and its joint fundraising committee with the Republican National Committee exceeded $314,000, a new campaign record since Election Day, coming almost exclusively from small contributions.


  10. They got shut down over info found about Seth Rich..mad as hell now. excerpt:

    2 reasons(NOW 3) why they have fully weaponized their autizm……..1. They absolutely hate the DNC mostly and 2. They want to avenge Seth Rich’s death. 3. which happened last night and this morning Pacific standard……4Chan was shut down for some odd reason and we ALL know why. HIS NAME WAS SETH RICH. I put this on 2 because even bi partisan people on 4chan still wanna see the DNC burn in hellfire. We’ve got the manpower, The_Donald, please contribute.

    UPDATE: Operation #IRENE is in full effect apparently. Arrests will be made………….on whose side……..I am not sure of. IRENE was a term for Black Hawk Down. That was when the 2 planes were shot down in Mogadishu.

    Pictures of Joe Capone at White House days before Seth Rich murder.
    Joe Capone is the owner of the bar Seth Rich was at moments before he was shot Louis City Bar in Washington DC. This is also the establishment that left Seth leaving in what was described an overly intoxicated state that no one who knew Seth had ever seen or heard him being in before (he held his liquor/didn’t over drink). Joe Capone was also at the White House as seen in the pictures just days before the murder.

    Toldya so.
    Our POTUS does not play.
    But Our POTUS is also willing to talk.

    “South Korea’s new President Moon Jae-in(‘s)…envoy to Washington, South Korean media mogul Hong Seok-hyun, said Trump spoke of the willing to use “engagement” to create peace on the Korean peninsula, Yonhap news quoted Hong as saying.”

    “But the United States will not have any dialogue with the North for the sake of dialogue and the use of pressure was the premise in the approach to Pyongyang, Hong quoted Trump as saying, according to Yonhap.”

    Now, here is a COWARD. A blithering, mealy-mouthed, pontificating, bloviating, hypocritical, poser, ID10T, coward.
    “Obama said his most courageous decision was to not bomb Syria”

    Dear Treepers, I honestly believe the media is digging themselves into one big old black hole. A grave that is. I’m travelling so looked at USA Today headlines today. It was quite hilarious. Be afraid because Wall street isn’t afraid the market is doing well. What? we should be scared our investments are doing well, hahahahaha. Dems demand explanation from Trump about info shared with Russians (um, minority party peeps). Homosexuals “assaulted” by Texas (new laws). Look, decent propaganda has to be believable on some level. A great stock market is nothing to fear. A state law is not a physical assault on someone. A President meeting with foreign leaders is not an impeachable offense.

    Comey seems stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    If Comey testifies that Trump DID try to coerce him, but he did not report it, then Comey has broken Federal law and has obstructed justice.

    If Comey testifies that Trump DID NOT try to coerce him and there is a Memo, then Comey has perjured himself.

    Comey can go to jail either way. Most likely, he’s toast. His only hope to save himself is if he contorts himself into a pretzel and threads a very fine needle.

    could someone set up a gofundme or whatever its called to increase the rewards leading to info about S. Rich murder? Enough of us contribute maybe we could add another $150k-$500k to this to make it real money not just the $150k or so provided by the family the others that have already pledged.

    just a thought…

    likely nobody comes forward but you never know.

    Don’t know if anyone has noticed. r/the_Donald has been under heavy attack including “resetting all the posts to zero,” last night and tonight. And they are claiming it is moderators doing it.

    I never got the hang of 4chan, but a post on this page, and posts elsewhere are saying they are under heavy attack too, and were completely shut down at least for a while.

    So far, I haven’t seen professional troll attacks here tonight, or even budget trolls (maybe I missed one or two), just the typical concern types who mostly have good intentions but are less informed and more cynical than others. What is happening on 4c and T_D make me expect that we may get hit hard tomorrow.

    As much as most of us hate to accept it, this probably is a civil war that is going to continue to escalate. It is a bit Scarry to think where this might be heading.

    Yes it is very very scary. Either 200-400 people go to prison or this leads to massive violence. I just don’t have faith that real law and order can ever be restored without violence. Hope I’m wrong, I just want to live my life, take care of my family, and hopefully someday retire with enough money to do what I want

    Keep your powder dry.

    Be ready, Be prepared.

    Trump has this but the deep state has tentacles every where.

    It is long past the time the tree of liberty was refreshed.

    A great day of reckoning is coming.
