    Do you believe he didn’t fire Comey himself when he was on the other side of the country? Is there precedent?

    I’ve seen multiple reports about Tillerson being fired—none, except the WH, are saying Tillerson was informed ahead of time.

    So pretend those reports are correct. Your answer to my question...

    You probably picked the wrong person to "who is..."
    You could've picked Goldengateblonde or HotTubBeerGuy, but you picked a rather well-respected white house reporter (and a fairly conservative one at that).

    It didn’t matter who she was because she was citing an AP report that was linked in her tweet.

    Its unorthodox, yes. Do i personally care, no.

    I like his style. I like his ideas. He won, give the man room to do what he campaigned on. He hasn't done much that goes against what he campaigned on has he?

    edit: and in hindsight, firing Comey was absolutely the right move. If i recall correctly, many dims including some on this board were calling for him to be fired.

    Man campaigns on racist agenda and a plan to subvert both America's foreign interests and the push for global democracy in favor of helping Vladimir Putin.

    Most of America says they don't want those things when they vote.

    "Why won't you guys just let him do what he campaigned on?"

    The manner in which Comey was fired is what was relevant to this conversation.

    I thought huge tax cuts for the wealthy, an admin riddled with corruption and federal investigations, and proposing to drastically cut Medicare/aid were what he ran on. No?

    love this woman. And fuck Tucker Carlson.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/life...8e748f892c0_story.html?utm_term=.5a57a110cbbb



    When Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson declared that the United States shouldn’t accept immigrants from “failing countries,” Mendelsohn dug up a narrative written by his great-great-grandfather, who said he’d left Switzerland because his prospects there were so limited.

    King and Carlson never responded to her findings. Neither did Lahren or Miller. When The Washington Post reached out to all of them for comment, only Carlson called back:

    "The United States is a completely different country now,” he said. “The idea that [having] a relative who came 150 years ago means I have to have a specific view on immigration? It’s so dumb it’s hard to believe you have to respond to it.” He continued: “There’s only one question that matters: what’s good for the country in 2018?”

    "I'm very confident that when the history of this era is written, it will reflect that the department was operated with integrity," Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said. | Win McNamee/Getty Images

    Rosenstein defends Mueller: 'The special counsel is not an unguided missile'
    By LOUIS NELSON

    03/13/2018 07:15 AM EDT

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the Justice Department official overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election, said Monday that criticism of Mueller’s investigation from President Donald Trump and his allies is unwarranted.

    "The special counsel is not an unguided missile," Rosenstein told USA Today in an interview published Monday evening, estimating that he spends less than 5 percent of his week on issues related to Mueller’s probe. "I don't believe there is any justification at this point for terminating the special counsel."

    Rosenstein did not mention Trump by name in his discussion of the widespread criticism of Mueller, although the president has led the charge in attacking the special counsel’s investigation, characterizing it often as a witch hunt initiated by Democrats embarrassed by the 2016 loss of Hillary Clinton. Last June, Trump ordered that Mueller be fired but was talked out of the decision by White House counsel Don McGahn.

    The deputy attorney general said much of the work his department does is not covered by the media and is not criticized, even amid a culture of skepticism surrounding the department stirred by, among other issues, the FBI’s handling of the investigation into Clinton’s use of a personal email server as secretary of state, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s airport meeting with Bill Clinton in the closing days of that investigation and a memo from House Republicans alleging misuse of the FISA court system by the Justice Department in relation to the Russia investigation.


    "I believe much of the criticism will fall by the wayside when people reflect on this era and the Department of Justice," said Rosenstein, who did not refer to Trump directly. "I'm very confident that when the history of this era is written, it will reflect that the department was operated with integrity."

    Rosenstein, who took oversight of the Russia probe in the spring of 2017 after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from all investigations related to the 2016 election, drew the ire of Trump by appointing Mueller in the wake of the firing of then-FBI Director James Comey. Trump has been coy when asked whether Rosenstein enjoyed his full confidence, telling reporters in February, “you figure that one out.”

    "I feel very confident in my ability to do the job," Rosenstein said. "In any political job, you recognize that your time is going to be limited. My goal is to get as much done for as long as I'm here in the job.“

    You don’t remember drain the swamp? Could’ve sworn that was a chant.

    And he said he wanted the wealthy to pay more. WRONG

    Horrible trade deals? Imposing a widely panned tarriff. WRONG

    And LOL how dare you act like Israel as an ally is a huge deal while he weakens alliances with NATO and others.
