The first indictments came down yesterday as well as a revelation of a guilty plea regarding lying about contact with Russian state actors. These are just the start in the investigation, but do show the beginning signs of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and state actors. Mueller is pulling together a web of deceit by the Trump campaign and administration that will only get deeper.
...
For those demanding collusion charges at this point, these things take time and Mueller is being patient about his actions. As expected, the Trump administration and conservative news have gone on the offense against Mueller, the investigation, and a desire to divert attention. For all the critique of MSM, this level of spin never came from those outlets. I know right wingers may want to think so, but their views are VERY filtered based on prior comments in this forum.
...
It will be interesting to see what happens from this point forward.

Here is a bigger fear of mine in the Russian collusion investigation. Russia has shown it will unconventional methods and leverage a variety of online methods to undermine our nation's stability. If Russia thinks the investigation is getting too close, don't be surprised if more Wikileaks come out, meant to either amp up the diversion messaging by Trump or punish Republicans in Congress before the 2018 election.
...
This is not the stuff of a Tom Clancy novel. This is real actions that have been taken in the past and are expected to intensify in coming months and years. Today, Congress will address the issue with the largest sources of information in America, Google, Facebook, and Trump's favorite, Twitter. We'll see where that testimony leads today.

Who remembers the Newt Gingrich quote, "Nobody should underestimate how much Paul Manafort did to really help get this campaign to where it is now."
"I have one of the best memories in history." Donald Trump
"Manafort? Never heard of him."-----Trump, in some variation , from this point forward. *

*
"Sanders said Trump had little reaction to the indictments." I read that he was seething. Apparently, he had enough reaction to jump on Twitter and to try to distract the attention of the loyal and the gullible to Hillary.
*
When asked about a photo showing Papadopoulos as a member of the foreign policy team, Sanders replied, "The president has thousands of photographs with millions of people." Whoa. Full stop. Let's don't pretend that is the same as his foreign policy team. Come on, Sarah, the president doesn't have thousands of photographs with millions of people ON HIS FOREIGN POLICY TEAM. What a ludicrous comparison and statement.
*
The right wingers would be going nuts (the ones not already there) if Hillary's campaign manager got charged with conspiracy against the United States, like Trump's has. They would be like the peasants in a Frankenstein movie, in the streets with torches and pitchforks screaming, "Kill the Monster!" and "Lock her up!"
*
What's clear is that Putin intervened in the election for Trump and that Trump's team was at best only TRYING to collude with Russia. How funny that the uber nationalists whose heads explode over a football player kneeling are determined to overlook having our Russian adversary's pet boy for whom they interfered in our election as our president.
*
I guess Manafort, Gates, and Papdopolous are examples of "I'm going to hire the very best people!" D. Trump.

Sarah Sanders is nothing but a press whore who is paid to spin on her heals as hard as she possibly can to present the alternative facts. Her daddy should be ashamed that he raised such a liar. At any rate, this is just the start. Trump will go down, it just takes time, just like it did with Nixon.

rbear sounds like Sherlock Holmes, always offering possibilities on, what ifs. If pigs had wings they could fly.

You dope, you outpost me 3 to 1. What do you mean "resident" troll? You're a sorry know-it-all, at least in your eyes.

gohogs, trust me. You beat me by a far greater number. I post on many subjects, but don't troll a particular article forum like you do. I can walk away and by the time I get back, you've posted 8 or 9 comments in that span.

My posts refer to different people not just you. There's so many leftists on these sites it's hard to not respond to them, especially when personally attacked as your kind thrives on. As far as trusting you, no further than I could throw you.

RBear is correct, gohogs. The fact that you can't or are unwilling to see the truth doesn't change it one whit.

You might try to find professional help to assist you in figuring out why you harbor such hatred in your heart for people you don't know.
