    an actual Name!

    WASHINGTON – President Trump has publicly called the widening federal investigation into Russia’s election meddling a “witch hunt.” But through his lawyer, Trump has sent private messages of “appreciation” to special counsel Robert Mueller.

    “He appreciates what Bob Mueller is doing,” Trump’s chief counsel John Dowd told USA TODAY in an interview Tuesday. “He asked me to share that with him and that’s what I’ve done.”

    Trump’s legal team has been in contact with Mueller’s office, and Dowd says he has passed along the president’s messages expressing “appreciation and greetings’’ to the special counsel.

    “The president has sent messages back and forth,’’ Dowd said, declining to elaborate further.

      Well someone needs to let the public know this because people are ready to kill each other over this. Anyone reading the comments section of articles knows this. We are all thinking that Trump is under investigation and people are flipping out mad and the situation needs to be calmed


      • Alexsandra says:

        POTUS and his counsel have said over and over that he is not under investigation. It is the media, the Dems, and the other prickly politicos who keep up with the Russia Russia Russia and other financial inuendos. But in point of fact it is on all counts still a witch hunt from that standpoint, plus one never knows where it will slime its way to. It is still to all of our benefit to be enraged, as indeed they are trying to take him down. But they don’t realize how ham-handed they are all, and it is utterly useless.


    • Sherlock says:

      This is utter b.s. Do not be lulled. They have communicated through counsel only because Mueller has made requests for documents, through counsel, to Trump and the White House. This is all just ultra-politeness before the battle. This is nothing else. And it does not mean that Mueller will not try to stick an obstruction case on the president. Remember “The Snake”. Believe me, Trump remembers it.

    I posted this in the other Open Thread cuz I didn’t think it had to do with the Election or Politics. But, point of fact, Pelosi and Feingold BOTH used to own in this Gated Neighborhood right in the heart of San Fransisco.

    Small wonder they could give a sh*t about Havoc and Illegals.

    Their HOA neglected to pay 14/yr. tax to City for 30 years. City put it on the Auction Block and it sold to this very smart couple 2 years ago for 90K.

    Residents just found out and now want to sue the City and new owners. Just IMO, they might have a case against the City for not notifying, but not the Buyers.

      please tell me this is fake news:
      “Under the Justice Department’s plea offer, Hillary would be required to sign a document admitting that she committed a prosecutable crime. In return, the DOJ would agree not to bring charges against Hillary in connection with the email probe.

      Also as part of the agreement, the Justice Department would not proceed with an investigation of Hillary’s pay to play deals with foreign governments and businessmen who contributed to the Clinton Foundation or who paid Bill Clinton exorbitant speaking fees.”

            It was easier and quicker to find it on Bing:


            The House Judiciary Committee on Thursday called for the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate matters relating to actions taken by members of the Obama administration.

            House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and other Republicans in the committee sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein asking for the second counsel to investigate matters related to former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Director James Comey and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

        I agree. She needs to be prosecuted.


        • camulla says:

          I don’t understand the attitude that people have that she lost the election, so she shouldn’t be punished further on things that have been reported to be crimes. If the people reporting these details are correct, she needs to be prosecuted so that Americans know our politicians are subject to the same laws we follow. Since an average citizen in the government would be fined or prosecuted, she should be subject to those consequences.

      Most disturbing but is only the first of the plea bargains, immunity agreements and ignoring the facts, but net…net, nothing will happen to Hillary, Comey or any of them given the DOJ we’ve currently got.

    Just heard the Turtle-Mitch say that Trump had “excessive expectations.”
    Per Mitch, Trump did not understand the pace at which legislation moves.
    One would think that nearly 8 YEARS of Bull$hit repeal/replace promises would have been sufficient….guess not.
    These morons just can’t stop shoveling dirt into that 6 foot deep hole….
    Here lies the Republican Party.

      I understand the criticism of Republicans, but again, most are voting how we need them to vote, and a few in both houses are not voting how we need them to vote on the issues. We need to maintain control of Congress and not give it, and thus the administration, to Democrats who have lost all sense of reason, who are enraged, and who would be dangerous back in power. We have to start shuffling our priorities and getting involved in local meetings, not complaining and waiting on Republican leadership to find and vet candidates so we just go to the polls and vote in elections.

      People tried not voting and voting for candidates who weren’t Republicans. Those options did not work and let in more Democrats who all vote as a bloc to be the resistance to the administration. If we want good leadership, we need to stop abdicating our role in finding and selecting candidates, and we need to help with campaigning so Americans know the current Congress is not doing what it needs to do to help the administration.

      Isn’t it wonderful. Senators Flake,Tillis and now Mitch trashing our President in the last week after repeal and replace fails…The republican senatorial campaign is not doing well in fundraising now and these people are certifiably insane…

      Sen.Alexander is going to start working with democrats after vacation to shore up insurance companies and on and on..That’s exactly what we voted for..No repeal and a shored up Obamacare….Geez…

    This past spring, during peak leak fervor, Trump said “we found gold behind those walls” This was and is an unusual and tantalizing remark. Now Trump is working from an office in Bedminster, New Jersey while the White House ventilation system is replaced.

    Just what “gold” was he referring to? Is this renovation a cover story for removal of illicit surveillance technology?

    I watched the news tonight about that “report” on Climate Change. My God, that wasn’t even a story, and it certainly wasn’t news.
    So, there’s a REPORT, and it was IN THE PAPER, because somebody LEAKED, or something, except the stupid draft report has been around for a while.
    So where is the story? Because there’s a report from government agencies, that makes MMGW a fact?
    Can I write a report and make anything I want to be true, true?
    Don’t these people get tired of making fools of themselves?

    Going down into the low fifties tonight where I live. Unusually chilly for early August. I should write a report.

    Posting without comment.

    Jamie Gorelick, the Hillary Clinton-supporting superlawyer representing Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, is now working “pro bono” [for free] for the city of Chicago in its lawsuit against the Department of Justice. Chicago is suing the DOJ over President Trump’s policies regarding federal grants for so-called sanctuary cities….”

    Story continues — and note the comment on Gorelick’s relationship with Mueller.

    Tom Zawistowski, President of the We the People Convention, released the results of an Ohio poll conducted today to determine support for President Trump and his policies since the election. The We the People Convention poll last October was the first and most accurate poll predicting the huge Trump win in Ohio.

    The poll conducted today re-polled the voters who participated in the original poll…
    (82%) saying that they fully support the President now and (17%) saying that they strongly support the President now. Meaning that 99% of actual Ohio Trump voters still support the President and only 1% do not.

    The poll today showed 55% of Ohioans support President Trump now, including 8.6% who said they voted for Hilary Clinton, and only 45% do not support the President. That is an increase of 3% from the 52.1% who voted for Trump in Ohio last November.

    53.88% of the poll participants said that they trust Donald Trump more than the media

    The poll contained 39.75% Republican voters, 39% Democratic voters and 20.88% self described Independent voters. A total of 57% were women and 43% were men and represented all age groups from 21 to 65+. The poll was conducted by TRZ Communication of Akron, Ohio.

    Polls you can trust.

      Good news, but we have to remember that nobody will be actively running for POTUS for 2 more years. The leftists already blew their wad too early and many will be deported, commit suicide, or go insane by the summer if 2019. Personally, I don’t believe that our President will have to Campaign much to win Re-election in 2020. Generation Z will vote for President Trump by at least 65/35.

    Ivanka and Jared will make sure that Hillary and her friends would not go to prison. They are good friends of Clinton before PTrump entered in politics. NY still controls by rats and tomorrow there will be democrat president too.
