    Oh wait, I just realized who I'm talking to.
    I don't read Ovaltine's posts but I'm betting he's defending Trump and Russia in some way because, you know, Russia hacking your election system and influencing voting by means of a massive propaganda campaign isn't an issue to be concerned about.

    On the upside, hanging him as a traitor will be a thing in the upcoming civil war.

    I would never accept a bet from you because you're a liar and a cheat.

    Also...didn't 2 happen before 1?

    No, Comey released the memos after Trump tweeted about possible tapes. There was some reporting before that that Comey had written memos, I believe, but the memos themselves were not out there.

    Yes, this is correct.

    When did Comey leak the memos? I thought Trumps bullshit about the tapes was in response to stories floating around about the memos - stories that existed because he had leaked them.

    Even if it was (which it wasn't) Trump bluffed and was called on it. At best, he's a lousy poker player. At worst, he's insinuating a crime. Either way, he is an idiot.

    Depends on the purpose of the bluff.

    Er, there is no obstruction from trying to intimidate Comey into accurately and completely reporting what was said between to the two of them. If he had tried to intimidate Comey into lying that would have been obstruction. But intimidating him into telling the truth? Just inappropriate boorish behavior.

    I will await you proving evidence Trump is under investigation, either before or after the memos.

    Trump lied about those tapes and got himself in more trouble. Only a moron would think that's a good move.
    What trouble would that be? That he tried to intimidate a witness into telling the truth? It's idiotic and absurd and rude and crude and lots of other adjectives, but there isn't any meaningful "trouble" from it.

    In years to come, people will travel to Trump's grave, situated in the ruins of his hotel, to dance upon it.

    Gowdy actually tries to make government work the way it's supposed to rather than have his committee in things it's not supposed to be in, and Kzach sees it as capitulation to Russia. Government works as intended = Russia did it. Government doesn't work as intended = Russia did it. Even at the height of the Cold War, Russia lacked the ability to be under every bed. It seems the fall of the Wall has vastly improved Russia's ability to be the root of all evil.

    Well it is shaping up to be the root of this administrations evil, along with general incompetence, neoptism and blatant corruption. But I digress.
    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I is before E except after C, then it's chaos man, mass chaos! Letters coming together into words, but then you go English and they put U's in places that just shouldn't go there... AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    My sanity left town along time ago and didn't leave a forwarding address. It's not missed.
