Of course it included Trump himself. Tell it like it is.

WASHINGTON — Not since Watergate.

FBI Director James Comey delivered more than one bombshell at a rare public hearing of the House Intelligence Committee Monday. He said there was no evidence to back up President Trump's accusation that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign, joining congressional leaders and intelligence officials in discounting Trump's unsubstantiated claims.

What was more explosive, though, was Comey's matter-of-fact confirmation that the FBI is investigating whether Trump associates colluded with Russia in the effort by one of the United States' leading global adversaries to affect the outcome of the 2016 presidential campaign.

To be sure, the FBI in recent years has been drawn into investigations involving the top ranks of the White House, from Scooter Libby's leaking of a CIA operative's name during the George W. Bush administration to President Bill Clinton's relationship with Monica Lewinsky. But not since the Watergate scandal that forced President Richard Nixon to resign more than a half-century ago has there been an official investigation of such potential consequence.

"The charges involved are more serious than anything we’ve seen in recent decades," says political historian Matthew Dallek, a professor at George Washington University and author of Defenseless Under the Night: The Roosevelt Years and the Origins of Homeland Security. "That is far from a lone instance of an illegal leak or a president fudging the truth under oath about sex with a White House intern. While we obviously don’t know what evidence the FBI has assembled and whether anybody will ever be charged with a crime, the scope of the investigation appears to encompass at least several of Trump’s chief advisers and perhaps Trump himself."

This will not end well for Trump and he knows it thus the reason for rallys in hope of diverting attention from the inevitable.

He has got to know it is not going to end well for himself, doesn't he? Congressman Schiff, ranking member on the intelligence committee, was on the CBS news tonight. He said either Trump knows what he said was not true and he just won't admit it or he doesn't know the difference between fact and fiction which is even more scary.

I haven't read Fox news in a while. But lately I sometimes read it to see what they are saying. I shake my head in amazement at some of the terribly slanted news they put out.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/03/20/trump-makes-dems-chase-tails-on-obama-tapping.html

TRUMP MAKES DEMS CHASE TAILS ON OBAMA TAPPING

Say what you will about President Trump’s claims that his predecessor was spying on him during the 2016 campaign, they have been a remarkably effective distraction.

Given the chance to publicly interrogate FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers about Russian efforts to meddle in the 2016 presidential campaign – a topic that should be an absolute field day for the blue team – Democrats instead devoted much of their questioning to disproving Trump’s apparently baseless claim.

Many of Trump’s supporters no doubt readily believe Trump’s claims, despite debunking. Trump’s critics, meanwhile, have been busy chasing their tails trying to disprove the disprovable.

A very limited role for a very limited amount of time! How can Spicer say this stuff with a straight face?

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/spicer-campaign-chairman-limited-role/story?id=46261623

As the House Intelligence Committee pressed the directors of the FBI and NSA for details about the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, White House press secretary Sean Spicer was attempting to distance the administration from a former top aide with ties to the region.

At Monday's press briefing, Spicer downplayed the role of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who directed the strategy behind election efforts for three months last year.

“Obviously there has been some discussion of Paul Manafort, who played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time," said Spicer, who ignored a follow-up request for clarification, given Manafort's position.

Manafort served as campaign chairman for a period of 99 days from May 19 to Aug. 19. During that time, Trump won six Republican primary contests, clinched the number of delegates needed for the party's nomination, chose Mike Pence to be his running mate and attended the Republican National Convention, where he accepted the GOP's bid and launched his general election campaig

Read this Fox and Spicer. This is much closer to reality.

http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics...t-trump-n735926

At the outset of a pivotal week in Washington, FBI Director James Comey delivered a political gut-punch to President Donald Trump Monday — and the news possibly could get worse for the president in the days and weeks ahead.

In sworn testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, Comey said there was no evidence to Trump's claims that Barack Obama wiretapped him and Trump Tower, as the current president alleged in a series of tweets earlier this month. And he confirmed that his agency was investigating the 2016 Trump campaign's links with Russia's effort to intervene in the presidential election.

But But But I heard Trump stand next to Angel Merkel and say this guy is brilliant!

https://www.yahoo.com/tv/fox-pulls-napolitano-air-trump-report-023807823--politics.html

Fox News Channel has pulled legal analyst Andrew Napolitano from the air after disavowing his on-air claim that British intelligence officials had helped former President Barack Obama spy on Donald Trump.

A person with knowledge of the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity because it was a personnel matter said Napolitano has been benched and won't be appearing on the air in the near future. Fox had no immediate comment Monday.

Napolitano's report last week on "Fox & Friends," saying he had three intelligence sources who said Obama went "outside the chain of command" to watch Trump, provoked an international incident. Britain dismissed the report as "nonsense" after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer quoted it in a briefing, part of the administration's continued defense of Trump's unproven contention that Obama had wiretapped him at Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign.

FBI Director James Comey, testifying before Congress on Monday, became the latest official to state that no evidence has been found to support Trump's charge.

The president, when asked about the incident, said that "all we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. I didn't make an opinion on it. You shouldn't be talking to me. You should be talking to Fox."

It is a long list.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trum...b0ec9d29de2c1e?

Let’s Revisit All Those Times Trump Surrogates Said You Can’t Elect Someone Under FBI Investigation

People such as presidential candidates! Here’s old Jeb Bush, giving “Fox & Friends” his considered opinion on the matter: “All I’m saying is that she’s under investigation by the FBI. Just pause and think about that. That’s not, that’s a pretty uncommon thing for a presidential candidate. And each and every week it just seems like there’s more information.”

When the FBI announced, late in the campaign, that it was “reopening” the investigation into Clinton’s email server, then-RNC Chair Reince Priebus was very precise: “This alone should be disqualifying for anyone seeking the presidency, a job that is supposed to begin each morning with a top secret intelligence briefing.” As Trump’s White House chief of staff, he must be thinking back over all the intelligence briefings that have transpired, and feeling kind of queasy about them.

Welly well, what’s Paul Ryan going to do about this? If history is any guide, he is going to immediately send a letter to the director of national intelligence, asking for Trump’s access to classified information to be shut down until we figure out what’s going on.

Poor fella, all the attributes of his leader, Donald Trump, easily distracted by personal thin skinned responses. Now for starters, learn to stay focus on the topic because currently you're highlighting your lack of resources and brain power.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/22/politics/donald-trump-trust-erosion/index.html

What's the difference between opinion and fact? Taking the time to channel surf from FOX news to MSNBC, it astounding in regard to one's take on any given topic concerning Donald Trump and the hypocrisy of the GOP since the 2016. Last year at this time we observed a bunch of Republicans discredit Trump by stating that he hasn't the mentality to lead but 60 days of debacle after debacle, strange and odd late night tweeting, lies after lie, attempted racist policies, many now says he a "GREAT" president. The final analogy expresses a party that is willing to go down in flames just like they did in 2000-2008 the facts evidenced themselves through the great depression, huge job lost along with millions of healthcare coverage. A 37% approval rating isn't exactly a telltale sign that you're doing great and logic,common sense, intelligence and promoting policies that hurt the poor and elderly isn't anything our country should justify irrespective of personal beliefs.
