Look who is doing the reporting/spinning and consider who just got fired.

When I read a few of the quotes, it came off as casual conversation.

Alleged quotes. I don't believe the actual memo has been produced.

Did you call for Obama's impeachment, in 2016, when he gave Russia classified intel, which caused our allies on the ground to die?

I guess we are not hypocrites. We are accustomed to having an incompetent in the oval office, after 8 years of Obama.

It's hearsay

Trump is finished. This is an official on the record FBI Memo. It's attempted obstruction of justice, anyway you slice it.

By not taking any action, at the time, this alleged obstruction happened, Comey failed to do his duty.

It makes one wonder how much Comey let go regarding HRC's mishandling of classified material, because he was willing to play ball with the executive branch.

In light of Comey's actions, I think all American's would support for an independent prosecutor to investigate HRC's crimes relating to her mishandling of classified material.
This is fascinating. The person reporting a potential crime is being accused of participating in that crime. Comey was not obstructing justice. He did not use his power to prevent an investigation. In fact he refused to shut down the Flynn investigation.

The fact that he did not disclose Trump's request publicly does not mean he did not add it to the ongoing investigations. In fact, the fact that he wrote the memo and distributed it among other FBI officials prove that he did not sweep it under the rug.

This was a private conversation. Trump would simply deny he ever made such a statement.

There is no comparison between what HRC did and what Trump did. Clinton handled classified material in such a way that Russia might have access. Trump flat out told Russian officials material that was classified and could have deleterious effects on our agents and on our relations with our allies. And he did it to massage his ego.

And I don't care if the President has broad authority to declassify material. That does not change the damage that he did.

Obama did not do one tenth the stuff Trump has and they were demanding his impeachment. These guys don't care about the truth.

These guys sold themselves to the devil. All for a Supreme Court that is going to abandon them sooner or later anyway.

Kind of reminds me of Damn Yankees. Only the conservatives here hate liberals and made the deal with devil to finally beat the liberals for a change. Only thing is the conservatives forget to get an escape clause.

So they are stuck with this turkey.

$33 billion to Iran so they can give Hezbollah $200 million per year to terrorize Israel and continue their nuclear bomb program...

Oh, now it's attempted? It either is or isn't. And it's not.

"The acts by which justice is obstructed may include bribery, murder, intimidation, and the use of physical force against witnesses, law enforcement officers or court officials."

Find any of the above in Trump's actions? No.

Just because the media boys think they have a rope around his neck, the law is what counts. Btw, any Repub member of the house that would go along with impeachment would be done, and they know it.
