    What I'm saying is most of Trump's domestic supporters are too daft to use the internet.

    Geez, unless Warner has some actual evidence, which I doubt, then I'm going to say he's pandering to the Legion of Butthurt.

    I think Trump's gonna have a lot more trouble with the emoluments clause than this Russia stuff, tbh. Probably what he was getting at.

    Key Democratic officials are clearly worried about the expectations that have been purposely stoked and are now trying to tamp them down. Many of them have tried to signal that the beliefs the base has been led to adopt have no basis in reason or evidence.

    The latest official to throw cold water on the MSNBC-led circus is President Obama’s former acting CIA chief Michael Morell. What makes him particularly notable in this context is that Morell was one of Clinton’s most vocal CIA surrogates. In August, he not only endorsed Clinton in the pages of the New York Times but also became the first high official to explicitly accuse Trump of disloyalty, claiming, “In the intelligence business, we would say that Mr. Putin had recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation.”

    But on Wednesday night, Morell appeared at an intelligence community forum to “cast doubt” on “allegations that members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.” “On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire at all,” he said, adding, “There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it.”

    Emoluments clause. Trump rents to the Bank of China. Read your constitution, that's thin ice.

    Yes, when you posted private smalltalk from a Senator betting on something, that's an example of what I'd sarcastically call "savage" as evidence goes.

    Not the figure of speech in itself, which I'd qualify as "mild" at most. It's your use of that demolishing piece of evidence what I called savage, let's be clear :)

    Ey, I hope Dolan gets kicked, he has been quite a dissapointment to me, I expected better from him and he has demonstrated that he truly is what I hoped he was just faking to be, a pretentious, not very bright douche...but that Kremlin shit already reeks of tryhardism and fail, sincerely

    "Emoluments clause"
    You know that it's rare that I can say this, but you're a fucking moron. The emoluments clause was intended to prevent GOVERNMENT payments, idiot.

    Still though, the case may at best only get a release of Trump's Tax returns.
    He might be immune if his sons are actually the ones handling his businesses, but he would have to prove it with those returns.

    If he bluffed about his sons dealing with all aspects, then great we have Pence the fundy.

    That's dumb, dude. The Emoluments Clause was only meant for direct money transfers or, more probably, paychecks. Madison's notes bear that out.

    Trump is as likely to fall according to Rachel Maddow now as Obama was according to Glenn Beck in 2009

    Even if that were true, it is Israels intel not ours

    And in some ways i agree with him about the journalists. If classified information is leaked to the press, it does not mean it is suddenly unclassified, and they are exposing it much more than it would normally if it just went around circles of insiders
