    The Witch Hunt gets more ridiculous EVERY DAY.

    I'm sure this fighter was deeply involved in the 2016 election.

    Pres.Trump's kindergarten teachers are worried that they might not have "crossed a 't' or dotted an 'i' " correctly, in the Trump kindergarten milk cart records, and fear possible indictment by Mueller, as does anyone who has purchased or been seen with Stolichnaya vodka in the past 40 years.

    Read the PUBLIC COMMENTS at the end of the article, to get a feel for what Americans think of this unending idiocy...

    MMA fighter with links to Trump, Cohen is questioned by FBI


    ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) — A Russian mixed martial arts fighter who has connections with President Donald Trump, the president's personal attorney Michael Cohen and Russian President Vladimir Putin was questioned this week by the FBI, his manager confirmed Saturday.
    Fedor Emelianenko was questioned by agents who met him in his hotel room on Tuesday, manager Jerry Millen said before Emelianenko's Bellator MMA heavyweight fight against Frank Mir. Millen declined to detail his client's conversations with the agents.

    Putin has attended Emelianenko's fights, and the 41-year-old fighter has been photographed with the Russian president. His connection with Trump dates back to 2008, when he was signed by Affliction Entertainment, a fight league in which Trump had an ownership stake. Trump announced a joint venture involving MMA and Emelianenko at a news conference on June 5, 2008.

    Affliction ended up folding for financial reasons after two events, both headlined by Emelianenko.

    Cohen was the league's chief operating officer. Two weeks ago, the FBI raided Cohen's New York offices, hotel and home, seeking information about a nondisclosure agreement he brokered with porn star Stormy Daniels days before the 2016 election. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has said she had an affair with Trump in 2006.

    The criminal investigation of Cohen is linked to special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

    It's is an utter disgrace, at this point. Like I said, click the article and scroll down to the public comments, to get an idea of what people REALLY think about this bullcrap, instead of what a media "poll" says they do.

    This is a great example of just how far off of the rails this "investigation " has gone. Put an end to it now. Simply amazing. 1/100000th of this effort into the Florida shooter and those children would still be alive.




    Etc., etc....

    This whole thing has become a joke, and many on the left, including people on this forum, think the next insane revelation will be their gotcha moment. Even Mad Max Waters has seen the writing on the wall and finally shut up.

    But let’s say Ttump called Putin and asked for his help, then what? Nothing, that’s what. During the primaries Clinton colluded with the press to win and no lefty said a word.

    Don’t forget, Sanders honeymooned in Moscow and Clinton took millions from Russia. Should they be subjected to what the left left is putting Trump through?

    It's a fake-out. They're really questioning Brock Lesner.

    I wonder if this interview is tied more closely to the "Russia collusion/interference" investigation or the "Cohen is a crooked ****" up investigation.

    Going through comments sections for statements of support of your position is asking a group of people for their opinion and then only using the opinions that agree with your position.

    And when you factor in that Yahoo comments allow for anonymous postings and that Russian bots are notorious for their immediacy and ferocity in responding to any story that mentions Russia or Putin? Well, I am not so sure that you even get to claim that these are the opinions of real people.

    Where was your concern over Obama's lack of military experience? Seems a bit hypocritical to go after Trump on something like that when you gave the last guy a pass...

    Your Boy Scout is a HAND PICKED SWAMP DWELLER, with a history of MAJOR SCREWUPS:
    As he investigates Trump's aides, Robert Mueller's record shows surprising flaws


    When he was named special counsel in May, Robert S. Mueller III was hailed as the ideal lawman — deeply experienced, strait-laced and nonpartisan — to investigate whether President Trump's campaign had helped with Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

    The accolades squared with Mueller's valor as a Marine rifle platoon commander in Vietnam and his integrity as a federal prosecutor, senior Justice Department official and FBI director from 2001 to 2013 — the longest tenure since J. Edgar Hoover's. He was praised by former courtroom allies and opponents, and by Democrats and Republicans in Congress.
    But at 73, Mueller has a record that shows a man of fallible judgment who can be slow to alter his chosen course. At times, he has intimidated or provoked resentment among subordinates. And his tenacious yet linear approach to evaluating evidence led him to fumble the biggest U.S. terrorism investigation since 9/11.

    Mueller also is remembered for a headline-grabbing case that ended in failure.

    In 1979, the government lodged then-novel racketeering charges against 33 members of the Hells Angels motorcycle club. The indictments alleged bombings and murders as well as the manufacture and sale of illegal drugs. The defendants and their supporters were so feared that bulletproof glass was installed in court to shield the judge.

    The first trial, of 18 defendants, ended with only five convictions. All were overturned on appeal.

    Mueller, who led the U.S. attorney's special prosecutions unit, then took over the case. He dropped many of the charges, including those against Ralph "Sonny" Barger, leader of the club's Oakland chapter, whose charismatic testimony had dominated the first trial.

    Mueller led a team of four prosecutors in court when the second trial, with 11 defendants, began in October 1980. But after four months, the jury said it was deadlocked, and the judge declared a mistrial. Mueller decided not to ask for a retrial.

    But Mueller's FBI struggled for nearly seven years to determine who was responsible — even as he personally managed the case.

    "The director was always the leader of the anthrax investigation, period," said Michael Mason, former head of the FBI's Washington field office.

    The FBI focused on Steven J. Hatfill, a virologist at the Army's laboratories at Ft. Detrick, Md. In January 2003, Mueller assured congressional leaders in a closed-door briefing that bloodhounds had traced anthrax from the attacks to Hatfill.

    But Hatfill had no experience handling anthrax. Nor did he have access to anthrax stored at Ft. Detrick or elsewhere. Years later, the FBI would reject the bloodhound evidence as unreliable.

    After media leaks fingered Hatfill, he sued the FBI and the Justice Department on privacy grounds. In June 2008, the government agreed to pay Hatfill about $5.8 million.

    The photo you used has nothing to do with criticism of service, it only shows that one had service and one did not. That is the only criteria that can be judged.

    Maybe it had to do with Trump DODGING the Draft during Viet Nam.

    Obama never Dodged the Draft when many other able-bodied boys were dying by the thousands.

    No comparison whatsoever between Trump and Obama.

    Trump (Cadet Bone Spurs) was a Draft Dodger.

    Period. End of story.:salute:

    So Trump is more like Bill Clinton? You folks had no problem with him.

    Judging by how ISIS has been handled, you are correct we can see the difference between someone like Trump and Obama. Trump gets things done, there is no comparison...
