No collusion.

I never really thought there was collusion... but I definitely think there was some obstruction that happened... nothing to come of it though...

Obstruction maybe but that is tricky to prove. Since there was no collusion then why would Trump fire Comey when he was investigating Trump and Russian collusion? There might be another unknown reason for obstruction but its hard to prove.

Well, there is obviously things trump didn’t want to get out that would turned up by an investigation.  Like the hush money payouts to the two ladies and any other issues some of his staff had.  So I can see why he would want to obstruct, but like you said, hard to prove and really impossible to prosecute since he is the sitting president...



The Green new deal was up for vote today in the Senate and no Democrat voted for it so it wont be used against them in 2020.

If anyone would like to discuss the US' judicial system, I'm all ears.

I was having a conversation this morning about it. At the end of the day, it's corrupt but to what extent?

Smollett turned the corruption to 11 I'd say.  Freakin' hell.  Dude could have literally started a riot.



Is anybody surprised that the administration of this guy...

....just cut all federal funding for the Special Olympics?

Is the special Olympics a government ran event?

That was just insane. I couldn't believe it.

Not only didn't they show anything to refute anything in the overwhelming amount of evidence the police had gathered, they didn't even have anything that questioned a single thing. It was just drop the charges, wipe his record clean and close the case so no one can ask us about it...

No, but an American sports organization founded in the 1960s that is dependent on various sources including the US government.

They will now have to cut their budget, operate in the red or increase their other revenue streams (higher fees, etc...).  Because apparently we can't afford that $18 million per year we provide....because POTUS can't cut 3 of his golf trips per year (same costs).

It would be an awesome gesture if Trump or any of his billionaire cabinet ponied up the difference.  But...see picture.  That's not going to happen.
