And yet you support the biggest stooge ever, with the biggest yap yapping the biggest lies to protect the biggest criminal around, Donald Trump himself.

the democrats cannot hit trump with perfidies while being guilty of the same things themselves otherwise all you have is the hypocrisy of both sides.

the democrats would tell us they are better than trump and the current GOP...

...well?

AG Barr's FBI investigation, President Trump and the threat from within

By perpetuating Trump's falsehoods about the FBI and Mueller's report, Barr has become the kind of threat capable of doing severe harm.
 
 

"..... Barr has already etched his legacy as a politically motivated AG. He issued a misleading summary of the special counsel’s findings, unilaterally proclaimed there was “no collusion” between the campaign and Russia although Mueller limited his search to only criminal conspiracy and decided that Trump did not commit obstruction of justice despite Mueller specifically stating that the president could not be exonerated and had committed 10 acts that could constitute obstruction. Barr also chose to refer to lawful investigation of Russia’s influence in our presidential campaign as “spying,” knowing full well that the word implied illegal acts as alleged by his seeming client, President Donald Trump........

 

...our current attorney general would have us believe the myth that some kind of deep state resides within the corridors of our most trusted institutions, a conspiracy theory the president’s supporters have repeatedly echoed. Despite ongoing related investigations by a capable DOJ inspector general, Barr wants us to believe, as does his boss, that our system is broken and that the only fix lies outside the practices and policies that served our democracy for centuries.

We don’t know if Barr’s decisions are malicious, self-serving or simply ignorant.

But by perpetuating the president’s falsehoods and eroding Americans’ trust in our institutions, Barr has become the kind of threat capable of doing severe harm; he has become a threat from within."

right, we can trust the California board of education to allow pedophilia to be pushed in their public school classrooms and I'm supposed to worry about a Washington lawyer?

Nippy--

 I can understand why you're disappointed with Cory Booker because he didn't go to Harvard like Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John F Kennedy, or Barack Obama.

No, Cory Booker had to settle for his BA and MA from Stanford. Then he was a Rhodes Scholar and got a MA from Oxford.

He ended up however at the Yale Law School for a JD.

Which isn't so bad but after all:

it's still not Harvard.  LMREO

Considering the crimes Trump and company have committed during the campaign and during his presidency, and that congressional GOP have decided to go along with it instead of doing their condtitutiional oversight duty, I would definitely say YES.

He's referencing a post that JakeHolman made in his "Mexifornia" thread that claimed that California schools were now teaching pedophilia as a sexual orientation. It took me approx. 60 seconds to look up the story and see that it has been debunked as false, and I posted the info on that thread. But naturally, why would the Trumpsters let facts get in the way of a good outrage?

There is NO Sam Ervin in either the House or the Senate.  Also, Ervin was a Dem in a Democratic majority Senate with moderate Republicans.

Amash READ the Mueller Report, and is speaking about that.  Every other GOPer who says the mantra "No Collusion! No Obstruction!" have not read anything other than Bill Barr's totally misleading Cliffs Notes "summary".  Obviously, Trump's crimes in the areas investigated by Mueller are in the actual report.  This is why Trump and co. are doing their best to bury the report, not let the unredacted report and its  underlying evidence be seen by Congress or the American people, and not let anyone who was interviewed to testify.  Because READING IT will open your mind to the truth!!!!  Trump is counting on the laziness and stupidity of Americans to not read it, and if no one is allowed to testify, then he feels he will get away with it.  But Sooner or later, the truth will out!!

Ervin was also a segregationist, though not among the worst. I doubt many people at the time of

the Watergate hearings remembered that. While there is no Sam Ervin in Congress today, there is

a Sam Ervin on the NC Supreme Court. :)

Exclusive: Anti-money-laundering specialists at @DeutscheBank detected what looked like suspicious activity in @realDonaldTrump and Kushner accounts in 2016 and 2017.

They recommended alerting the government.

Bank managers said no.

The activity in question involved Trump and Kushner overseas transactions, according to five current and former bank employees.

Kushner Companies was moving money to Russian individuals. The Trump Foundation was also flagged for suspicious activity.

 

The employee who flagged the Kushner transactions, Tammy McFadden, worked in anti-money-laundering in @DeutscheBank's private-banking unit.

After voicing concerns, she said she was transferred to another division and then fired. She is speaking publicly for the first time.

About 7,000 white-collar jobs are being eliminated as part of Ford's massive organizational restructuring. The automaker says it will save $600 million per year as a result.

====================================

Bernie SandersVerified account @BernieSanders 6h6 hours ago

 
 

Ford got nearly $750 million in tax breaks from the Trump tax scam

and paid its CEO $18 million last year.

Now, Ford is laying off thousands of workers.

 

The bottom line: Republicans sold the tax scam as a way to create jobs and help workers.

They lied.
