I agree. Hillary getting Millions for arranging that 20% of Uranium could be sold to Russia was an act of treason.

So was hiding the 911 Commission Report section of Saudi Arabia.

So was visa-express for Saudi Nationals which meant they arrived with no interview given by US Embassy personnel beforehand.

Ahhh, but Flynn, talking to the Russians, when he actually didn't have ANY position in the new administration when Trump was P.E., well, Flynn should be sent to the firing squad at Gitmo..

We won't even touch on the fact that someone at the NSA leaked the conversation Flynn had...

No, by all means. Let's not worry about what the current President is doing. Let's continue to focus on what happened years ago.

Let's pretend that it's OK that Trump is just as bad as Clinton even though you guys had 5 threads a day about how bad Clinton is. Now it's OK since it's Trump.

Did anybody else notice Putin teabagging Trump this morning? He said that canning Flynn would have very bad impact on relations with Russia. Will Trump tell him to mind his own business or will he just thank him for the love tap and adjust his behavior?

Fake News. Putin was worried the US Establishment is getting very paranoid.

A good point given all the McCarthyism and Bias we've seen.

Did you read the date. Its not even apple and oranges. Obama was the President when he made that comment. He was authorized to speak with the person he was speaking with and discuss whatever he wanted to.

What ? You are as clueless as KAC ( Con Kelly Anne Way). As a president he could negotiate before or after ( if he became the president) the election. He was in his rights to communicate with him at the time and not infringing on any other administration.

Show me where it's a crime for a PEOTUS and his incoming admin to ask a foreign ambassador to delay retaliatory sanctions.

By the Way, Logan did much the same thing - the Quaker negotiated with Tallyrand for a French pledge not to impress US Sailors. And like the Democrats, Adams was butthurt and got his pals in Congress to pass the Logan Act, which is a dead letter law that has never resulted in a single successful prosecution in 200 years.

Why was Adams butthurt? He was Anti-French, just like the Democrats are Pro-Saudi and Anti-Russia.

It is a problem at many levels.

1. It was directly against the wishes of current administration with a country that had just help Trump illegaly with election. At best it looks like quid pro quo and at worst it is treason

2. The administraction lied about it.

3. If he talked to Russians , did Trump ask him to. If so that is another investigation going back to #1

4. Did he talk to Russians before the election.

This country is very mad with the way Trump administration is behaving. I think we will get some idea with new elections
