in business and politics, personal loyalty is regarded as very important, IN PARTICULAR Trump has said variously he never forgives and will bide his time for revenge on people who insult him, I think Trump and Mitch will carve Cucinelli up between them! its a form of cat and mouse, 2 cats and a mouse. Cucinelli is a mutual enemy, so Trump offers him a job,which is bait, he takes the poisoned chalice because he is blinded with greed, Mitch then blocks him, and Cucinelli is neither here nor there and has lost all credibility! personal loyalty is different from… Read more »

Well what does Jesus say?: " “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26 Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean." "You hypocrites! You snakes!"

I wonder that trump Putin and Cambridge Analytica have got the goods on many members of the GOP. Maybe that Russian-NRA money and a few other conflicts and infidelities. Whatever it is, it cuts to the core of their corruption. So they keep quiet.

What a shocker. Politics happening during a Presidential election. That’s never happened before. It’s only at Trumps convention that there we’re things going on under the table. You must think That the American public is stupid. Remember, Hillary cheated Bernie out of the nomination. She financed the Steele report which was full of lies about Trump and eventual was used fir illegal warrants. And now, a former non supporter of Trump who supported Ted Cruz is now going to get a job in the Trump Administration. Another shocker. The Dems would never do that. Right? Why don’t you quit while… Read more »

Get it, Everybody Knows He is sweating guilt thru his hais hairpiece, but it is my belief in blah…If you want to know why?Read just the last 10 pages.He also laid out an absolutely no way to misinterpret 10 place obstruction case and made it clear he believes he could nog charge, but hear you go Congress.You could just read it and he would lose.

There was not evidence to charge Conspiracy under Federal Guidelines and we looked at the publics cries of collusion( Trumps set up,Collusion noy conspiracy- Swift move, like Obamacare and not the ACA).Collusion he states not a crime.He adds the disclaimer.That we could not charge does not mean we did not have any evidence

A policy designed for normal human presidents, this is so far outside of that, the author of the Policy was hoping Mueller would indict.It is a Policy not a Law, his reasoning was out of a belief that his party were honorable like him.That tells you how far off the whole conclusion and what supported it was.If you read just the Conclusions, you would see
