    Hillary Clinton received, transmitted, and re-transmitted email that contained classified information on an unprotected computer server, and that breaks all kinds of laws pertaining directly to national security! She generated no fewer than 104 such email transmissions herself! Link: https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...ory.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.9f9084008b4d .

    How many times must we restate this?!
    BUT, she was never charged with doing anything wrong at all! She got away with all of it because of James Comey, Loretta Lynch, and, ultimately, Barack Obama!

    As for Trump -- let the specific charges come forth accusing him of committing crimes and I'll be the first one to call for legal action to be taken, based on in-your-face evidence, with no nonsense at all! Let the charges be filed! Let the facts be known! HOLD NOTHING BACK! But stop all these rumors and unsubstantiated "dribs and drabs" slopped all over the place without any proof or evidence. The only people this kind of ruinous crap is helping are the Russians and the Chinese....

    Doesn't matter, the right were united in their belief that they were impeachable offenses and then they did that very thing. So that is the standerd that they must insist on now, wouldn't you agree? Or is it somehow different now?

    They won't listen, even though they probably know this.

    BTW, the Steele Dossier continues to be proven to have been true. I find their continued repetitions of debunked, uh, "arguments" amusing but I am also embarrassed for them.

    Wait for it--the question will be "Uhh, dur, which parts are true?" This is a question that they can search for here,or on google. I've posted the answer to that question numerous times.

    Repetition doesn't imbue it with truth, my deluded amigo.

    That's not a crime.

    The 'birth certificate' thing has absolutely NOTHING to do with this. But now that you mention it, a number of people did try to get that whole issue into court, but they were refused because the judges said that the people trying to file those motions and charges "did not have STANDING", even though those same people had been high-ranking, credentialed legal officials themselves.

    But, "more respect shown the other camp"...?! Are you serious?! In the post above, I repeated for about the 10,000th time that Hillary Clinton broke the law over and over regarding national security and classified information -- BUT SHE WAS NEVER CHARGED WITH ANYTHING!

    The Left is howling for Trump's head on a spike, based so far on nothing but hearsay, rumor, and innuendo, but when Hillary was caught RED-HANDED running a server "in the clear" with classified information on it, she gets away with ALL of it. And that's 'fair' in your mind... right?

    Yes. Find that or be considered wrong. Shouldn't be that hard for you.

    Eh. It's called extrapolating. If I'm wrong, I'll admit as such. More then you've ever done here.

    And that's the difference between us. You seem to think being wrong is embarrassing. I feel no embarassment because this is an internet message board full of random people I'll never meet or know in real life. I log out, enjoy my life with my wife and kids and friends and whatnot. Are you so empty in life that you see these little debates as the only validation in your life and then project that on everyone you interact with here?
    How embarrassing for you.

    Mueller's office just came out with a statement saying the Buzzfeed article is bogus.

    If you had even a basic understanding of how classified information MUST be handled by all persons with government security clearances, you wouldn't embarrass yourself by saying things like that. Don't take my word for it! Ask anyone with a government security clearance whether or not all devices receiving, transmitting, or re-transmitting communications containing classified information MUST be fully-protected within a Sensitive Compartment Information Facility (SCIF)! Next, ask if Hillary had a SCIF in her mansion where the private server was. Are you getting embarrassed? You should be....

    BTW, truly, before I retired, I had had two different top-secret security clearances. I know what I'm talking about....

    Why aren't you comparing and contrasting the right that are also guilty of the same hypocrisy and did impeach a popular president? In case you didn't know it's hypocrisy in both directions. The difference is that you want to give your side a pass AFTER refusing to give one to ther camp. And that is even worse. I wasn't three when this took place, so go ahead and try to deny it, I got time and could use a good laugh.

    The same for you my little friend. We are both making assumptions. I'm making the assumption no one would be stupid enough to room with a complete stranger who would have no liability to property damage they could inflict and would blindly accept that accountability for a stranger with no questions asked. You are assuming they are that stupid. Hmmmm, who is more believable? :)

    Sorry sport when there is no evidence its not extrapolating. Its blind faith in your bias when facts don't exist to back you.

    No I think basing my beliefs on faith with no facts on a political matter is simply stupid.

    Do you actually believe any tales of your claimed personal life gives you cover to leave of your senses when you blindly accept on faith a political story with no evidence? Yes I have a life out of this place as well with a wife and kids and nieces and nephews, friends parents and godparents. I don't bring them up to use as a pawn for my failed argument. Its pretty pathetic you felt you had to for yours.

    Please, please -- a link! I believe you, but the radical Democrats here won't! Rub their faces in it! I'm looking for it, but I can't find it yet.

    I have an advanced understanding of the law.

    And you plainly do not.

    A private server is not a per se violation of any law. And military regulations don’t apply here, which is what I suspect what all of that misguided blathering is about.

    An interesting aspect is your comment “without being able to prove”. On the other hand kelly conway excoriated the “law enforcement” leaks from the investigation.

    So on one hand there is no public proof, otoh if the investigation has proof it should not be leaked.

    Fwiw, it seems to me that many people testified to similar false stories. This leads me to believe there was some coordination if false testimony...which likely came from the top. And it is likely that in all this there will be further evidence beyond the word of Michael Cohen.... which is what the buzz feed article alleges to be true

    Counsel

    And not quite.
    "BuzzFeed's description of specific statements to the Special Counsel's Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen's Congressional testimony are not accurate," said special counsel spokesman Peter Carr in a statement.
    https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/18/politics/mueller-statement-buzzfeed/index.html

    It remains to be seen exactly where the inaccuracies lie.

    I have no need to calm down that facts are on my side. You have seen the breaking news tonight, perhaps you can calm down now.
