Hillary supporters? Truly?
Rick wrote: The fact is SC, that Hillary was being investigated by Hillary supporters... hardly a shocker that they didn't indict her on anything. The other fact is that she did indeed lie to the FBI about having classified material on her unsecured server and it was just discovered that emails MARKED CLASSIFIED were on Huma's laptop and forwarded to the Wiener. Flynn gets prosecuted for lying yet nothing for Hillary and her dirtbags. The double standard is obvious to anyone who isn't a Democrat it seems.
"There have been seven investigations led mostly by Republicans in the Congress," Clinton said. "And they were nonpartisan, and they reached conclusions that, first of all, I and nobody did anything wrong, but there were changes we could make. This committee was set up, as they have admitted, for the purpose of making a partisan political issue out of the deaths of four Americans."
Is Clinton correct that there have been seven and now eight investigations into Benghazi? We started counting and found she was largely accurate.
Here’s what we found.
The Washington Post, quoting an unnamed person close to Mr Trump, says investigation lead Robert Mueller is likely to interview him within weeks.
According to The Post, Mr Mueller first raised the possibility of interviewing the president in a meeting with his lawyers, John Dowd and Jay Sekulow, in late December.
"This is moving faster than anyone really realises," the newspaper quotes a person within the president's circle, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
President Trump's legal team did not confirm the reports, but told both media outlets: "The White House is continuing its full co-operation with the OSC [Office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller] in order to facilitate the earliest possible resolution."
Aside from the Russia angle, special counsel Robert Mueller may also look into whether the president and his inner circle sought to obstruct justice while in office following the firing of FBI director James Comey.
Another note about that dossier, which I will reiterate is NOT the sole basis for the Special Counsel investigation so if you're thinking that discrediting it makes everything go away, you would be in error.
Washington—Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the transcript of Glenn Simpson’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee with the support of committee Democrats. Simpson is the co-founder of Fusion GPS.
“After speaking with majority and minority committee staff for 10 hours, Glenn Simpson requested the transcript of his interview be released publicly. The American people deserve the opportunity to see what he said and judge for themselves,” said Senator Feinstein. “The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice. The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public.”
The transcript is available here and corrections made after the transcript was finalized are available here.

The FBI didn’t pay Steele for the dossier; Republicans and Democrats did.
Here’s a better question: What would possess a US Congressman to mislead the American people about a federal investigation?https://twitter.com/Evan_McMullin/status/951270962762305536

Counterchekist Retweeted John Schindler
12/04/2015. That’s the date this Tweet was posted. Now, why wasn’t there *any* investigative reporting from MSM on tRUmp’s well known organized crime and Kremlin ties during the 2016 election? It was right in front of their faces. This failure is unprecedented & unacceptable.

IMPORTANT ===> this ties Trump to Russian organized crime & indirectly to Putin. This is a very big deal, folks.
Trump picked stock fraud felon as senior adviser

1) QUICK THREAD on Mueller Probe
Tea Pain suspects we won't see further indictments until Mueller locks down an interview date with Trump or Trump says "No interview."
2) Flynn's plea deal has yielded bushels of juicy fruit and allowed Mueller to go directly after Trump without spendin' another round of indictments tippin' his hand.
5) If Trump says "No Interview!", expect Mueller to let go with a massive bombin' run, then subpoena Trump to appear before his Grand Jury.
7) Mueller's played so few of his cards, Trump may arrogantly believe Mueller's got nothin' on him and run his mouth more recklessly.
8) In closin', don't interpret this period of calm as weakness on Mueller's part. It means just the opposite. Mueller has a chance to roll the President months quicker than anyone expected. Hold fast. Good things are comin' soon! <Pain Out>https://twitter.com/TeaPainUSA/status/952989587688878088

1) MINI-THREAD on Bannon Testimony:
We heard two different schools of thought on Bannon's testimony yesterday.
a) The White House instructed Bannon to limit his testimony
b) Mueller instructed Bannon to limit his testimony
3) Tea believes Bannon is fully cooperatin' with Bob Mueller's team and that Bannon was indeed in touch with the White House yesterday.
4) Bannon was actually contacting the White House to collect phone and text messages that would bolster Mueller's Obstruction of Justice case against Trump.https://twitter.com/TeaPainUSA/status/954077148964417537
If you'd like to compare FOX with CNN and list the number of fake/bullshit stories, I'd love to challenge you on that. Other than the OPINIONS of contributors and commentators, could you list some fake news stories make by FOX in the last year?

I know most people on the left probably don't know about this memo or won't believe it no matter how much evidence surfaces, but I'm sure it's much more credible than that piece of crap dossier. This could be extremely entertaining watching all of this backfire on our worthless media and the left. Hopefully something good will come out of all this, like exposing people in Obama's FBI and DOJ that were hell bent on making sure Trump lost. Sorry, no impeachment."
Wow... The 'people on the left' who have actually been following this and saw the nunes distraction coming last week. Nunes is the one who wrote it based on no facts. Then he started the whole #releasethememo hashtag on twitter and on FB. It is the TOP trending hashtag.... you know why? It is being pushed by the same russian network of bots that pushed the all of the false narratives the effected the 2016 election. You know, the one that every US intel group found evidence that was occuring. The reason why the sanctions against the russians were implemented.
Nunes is the only one who can '#releasethememo' since he and his team wrote this piece of fiction. He won't even release it to the FBI! I know, you will next say that Robert Mueller is a Obama plant.. that is the other russian disinformation campaign that is going on.
As a reminder, Mueller is one of the most respected law enforcement agents this country has know for 30 years. He is a decorated war hero. He is a republican... for his whole life. So is Christopher Wray, so is Rod Rothenstein. These are all well know facts, easily confirmed.
The only 'fake news' and associated bullshit that is out there is the crap that is being pushed by fox, infowars, brietbart and drudge. When all of this shakes out we will all know who the traitors to the United States are and the people who believe the crap from those 'sources' WILL be on the wrong side of history. JFC, the fickin RUSSIANS are the enemy! And the right is acting is if they are their friend. I truely feel for you Rick, I know you want to believe the nunes narrative, really I do. But it is nothing but a distraction to manipulate 45's base, to keep them engaged and believing that russia did nothing, they just want to help. Please step outside the bubble of R/w media and do in depth research. I hope you do... I really hope you open your eyes,
