    Oh my! Was this piece of garbage used as part evidence to get FISA warrants to spy on the Trump Campaign? Trump needs to de-classify it all so the public can see ALL the shenanigans the opposition was doing to try to influence the election their way. Then have the new AG appoint a special prosecutor to look into potential colluding with a foreign agent as Steele is a British citizen to influence an election. They need to examine the FISA process that allowed the Obama administration to spy on the opposition parties political campaign. I was 15 years old during Watergate hearings, this appears to be just as serious and the American people deserve to trust the Government will Police itself, sadly it appears that has been lost along the way.

    Lol...Your penchant for denial is understandable, given the situation.

    OOOH! What a smart reply! You are obviously highly intelligent.

    Is there anything of substance you could add?

    Folks see the word "Times" and assume that this right leaning rag is actually on par with superior journalism.

    news flash, there is no journalism, it's all biased commentary regardless of source ;)

    The Washington Times is certainly biased, and its assertion fails the test of time: the investigation is ongoing.

    The FISA process should either be abandoned, or the government should follow the law to the letter and prosecute those who violate it.

    This case shows it to be horribly flawed.

    The Washington Times has a slight right wing bias just as the Washington Post has a slight left wing bias.

    The degree of bias is similar.

    The Post is really just another mouthpiece for the status quo and government propaganda, the Times not so much. Thus the OP article.

    I thought the only paper in D.C. was owned by Bezos himself. It's early after a night if festivities. My bad.
    I had to google it and used wiki. Figured even wiki can't go wrong with a D.C. paper ownership.
    Whilst doing so, I came up with this gem of history that just made me smile...

    FISA works well, and any who oppose it need to be investigated.

    Overshadowed by your failure to address any of the points presented.

    He was chastising the professor not the points, and Surfer Joe was correct and you?: off on an unrelated tangent.

    Really? And what was the Professor in denial of? So attacking a poster rather than the topic is considered "related".

    Understandable given your posting style.

    LMAO telling someone that they failed to address the points presented in the OP..... now to leftists means off on an unrelated tangent.

    Simple is as simple does. :laughing:

    My posting style is clear and to the point. SJ was chastising (not attacking) a poster who was deliberately off point as are you, and is MMC, ocean515. The OP has failed, and has all attempts to defend it.

    lol, the investigations that start tomorrow are going to be soooo much fun. 1st week, they're going after tax returns...bank records from Deutsche Bank and looking at all the emollients issues. lmfao...I cannot wait for trump's sexual partner/daughter to go to prison. They're going to be looking into the illegal bribery payment that she and her idiot husband made to a judge to stay indictment. And the fat racist infesting the White House can do nothing about State charges.

    And its not just Congress. There's all the myriad of current investigations and then the new NY attorney general takes over and she's on a mission to lock up trump and his kids. Finally this arch moron criminal is going to be tried for his years and years of crimes and fraud...and his little disgusting, vile kids are going with him.

    Its gonna be EPIC!!!! What a great year this is going to be.

    Why does the left bitterly cling to the russia narrative?

    Is it that they can't understand how Trump won?

    The dossier was a complete fraud and the Dems knew it. But it served its purpose. It got the camel's nose under the tent and launched a virtually unlimited investigation.
