Presidents* Trump & Putin bromance

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I am going to right an alternate history novel where FDR meets with Hideki Tojo and they both declare that it wasn't Japan that attacked Pearl Harbor.

'Bizarre' and 'shameful': Republicans lead responses to Trump news conference with Putin

Sen. Bob Corker (TN), Sen. John McCain (AZ), Sen. Jeff Flake (AZ), Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC) - Not too surprising.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY), Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Current House Speaker Paul Ryan (WI), Sen. Ben Sasse (NE), Sen. Orrin Hatch (UT) - Has Putin's Agent Orange finally gone too far?


Funny, I was just wondering if the article above could possibly affect Kavanaugh's confirmation.
Tell key Republicans: Block Kavanaugh

Image

Tell key Republicans:

"The Supreme Court could rule on questions arising from the special counsel's investigation into Russian interference in our election. We need a justice who understands that no one is above the law. Don't give Donald Trump a court that will give him impunity. Block Brett Kavanaugh."

TV news said that he had a 9 hour plane ride with nothing to do but follow how he was being scorched by everyone over the summit, that the worst thing in the world to him is to be seen as weak, and that no aides came back to do the usual chat with reporters.

'Treason' Is Top Searched Word After Trump-Putin Press Conference

A lot of people were searching for the right words to describe U.S. President Donald Trump’s Monday press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

According to a tweet by dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster, the top-searched words included “treason,” “traitor” and “collusion” after the two leaders appeared together in Helsinki.

Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???

Mitch McConnell must stop covering for Trump

Tell Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell:

"Stop blocking a vote on the bipartisan legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation."

Trump impeachment chances rise after Putin summit: bookie

... Before his joint press conference with Putin, odds that Trump would get impeached were 4 to 1; afterward they fell to 2 to 1.

“Given the complexity of the impeachment process, that’s an unprecedented price in terms of how short it is,” Price said. “No president in modern history has had such short odds.”

Bettors also believe there’s less chance Trump will finish out his first term.

The Trump impeachment bet is more popular than Brexit, any UK election or the 100 other special bets on the site, Price said.

The Irish gambling site has capitalized on the Trump presidency since he took office, by offering bets on scenarios like: When will Sean Spicer leave/get sacked as White House press secretary....

Russiagate Is Far Wider Than Trump and His Inner Circle
It isn’t just the story of a few corrupt officials, or even a corrupt president. It’s the story of a corrupt Republican Party.


Fox News poll: Majority think Mueller will find Trump committed criminal or impeachable offenses

A Fox News poll released Wednesday reported that a majority of Americans believe that special counsel Robert Mueller will find that President Trump committed criminal or impeachable offenses.

Fifty-six of respondents in the poll said they believed Mueller’s probe will find that Trump committed the offenses. And 67 percent say they believe it’s at least somewhat important that Mueller’s investigation continues.

However, 71 percent said they think that Trump will fire Mueller before the probe is over.

Democrats polled were far more likely than Republicans to predict Mueller would find Trump committed such offenses, at 85 to 22 percent. But a majority of both Democrats and Republicans expected Mueller to be fired, at 82 percent of Democrats to 61 percent of Republicans.

Sixty-four percent of respondents in the poll overall also said they believe Mueller is treating the White House fairly....
