But, reading it again, he was talking about stopping this “nonsense” and criticizing the “ruse”..  The “nonsense” and “ruse” below his post was Grassley and Graham’s calling for a Steele prosecution.  So maybe I misread it, or maybe he was confused, but his post looked like he was critizing the GOP.

Either way I think you are putting too much thought into it. If anything we should be pointing our fingers at his incoherence and drawing the parallel to his favorite politician.

I don’t think he was saying what you think he was saying.  

Actually, I don’t think he was saying what you think he was saying. But either way, Snowball’s comment stands.

Probably true on both counts. 

But maybe somebody could explain what he meant?

They're really ramping up efforts to fire Sessions, which I applaud, though it's for all the wrong reasons.

 

Yeah, they are just going to replace the a$$ with someone to sabotage the investigation. More than likely

I have a racist Uncle. Every time my family gets together he says a bunch of stupid s***. Instead of arguing with him we just ignore him and make fun of him when he leaves.

There is a guy at my job who believes Obama is running a shadow government. Any time he tries to talk to about news or politics he is ignored.  We wait for him to go away and then we make fun of him.

That is also true.

 All I know is that I'm starting a list. So far it's Jim Jordan, Nunez, Grassley, Graham. 

 These pricks are going after the investigation,     

 We are talking about the investigation of potential treason here. Get the freak out of the way  you partisan schmucks. 

If there are problems with the investigation, let's have a look after you get your freaking priorities in order.

Priority 1: We've got elections coming up soon, please show us ANYTHING Congress has done to prevent  The KNOWN tampering from happening again. 

 What the **** is wrong with these people. 

 Hey, I'm salty. I'm angry. I am freaking unhinged.  The only reason to go off the rails like this is if you give a **** about democracy.

 Whoever is appointed has to be confirmed.  

 Democrats should require the appointee to take a vow not to fire Mueller. 

If he doesn't, they should vote against him.  Let's see what the Republicans will do with that.

Pretty much.  That’s why I said they’re playing with fire and are now complicit in any wrong doing uncovered by the Mueller investigation.  

And remember a few years ago when I said that there is a disturbing authoritarian streak within the GOP?  Some of these people don’t actually give a **** about democracy.  They care more about their ideology and retaining power than they do about a functioning democracy.  I think they’ve shown that time and again these last several years.

And let the GOP own every single part of this.  By now, it’s no longer speculation about Trump’s intentions.  He wants to shut down the investigation and is willing to engage in every tactic and abuse of power to do it.  Republicans can no longer wink, nod, and look the other way at this if Sessions goes and/or Mueller is fired.  So let them own all of it.

Since Vows seem to be worth next to nothing, see marijuana laws challenge, I wouldn’t put much faith in that.

Yeah, I’ve heard nothing about Pence being implicated in any of this.  It might be rats fleeing the sinking ship or it might be routine.  There is usually a lot of executive branch turnover at the end of the first year.  That’s fairly typical.

 

 

Pence might be involved with all of this. I think its very possible that Pence was aware of the meetings with Russia..esp ones where sanctions(wouldn't be enforced by Trump) were discussed.  Pence has praised Putin before and had no issue at all lying over and over for Trump during the VP debate with Kaine.

Well I mean anybody besides the 35% of Trump supporters. We already know what they're willing to believe. Also I don't really consider Hannity a person.
