    It kind of struck me that even Trumps most vocal supporters (Fox, BreitBart, etc) where not allows to Trump's meeting with Russian diplomats.
    I am not even sure if the official WH photographer was allowed there.

    The funny part is the Russian media was there, and the WH thought they where part of the Diplomats group, not Russian media.

    All this 1 day after firing Comey for investigation Trump about Russian connections with WH staff.

    I am completely puzzled why hide this meeting when there is no reason to hide it (or is there?), especially since it was known he was meeting them.

    This is the worst movie/TV drama plot ever written.

    Misleading headline.

    Only the White House photographer and the Lavrov's photographer were allowed in the meeting.
    No one from the press was supposed to be there.

    The Russians lied about Lavrov's "personal" photographer's credentials. They did not tell the WH that he was also a photographer from TASS news agency.

    This is an embarrassment to the WH security screening process.

    ALL press were allowed in after the initial meeting took place.

    Tell me, what would be the difference? Seems to me, since both are state controlled it really doesn't matter. Only difference is the Title of job.

    Cute, but not even close to being accurate. Fake alternative fact cartoon.

    How on earth was the headline misleading?
    "

    No conservative US media was in the room.

    I was a bit off about the Russian media tagging along as "Lavrov's "personal" photographer's", but even if no direct media connection whose to say the Russians would not release it anyway?

    To me that toon looks like Trump is hiding the evidence.

    It's misleading because it was not a press event.
    There wasn't supposed to be ANY media at all, only WH and Russian staff photographers. The Russians pulled a fast one on the photographer's credentials.

    Think of it this way: how much money did he save the government? They didn't even have to set up a server for the Russians to get access to that info. #MAGA

    That's okay, there are plenty enough others to explain or deflect away such actions. Even our allies didn't know about this one yet, but Trump was telling the Russians. Well, we know where his priorities are. :rolleyes:

    I can't stand when everyone says Hillary had "no corruption" but Trump is going to get "impeached"? I haven't even listed 1/100th of her corruption below:

    Thanks to wikileaks, and DKIM-verified (cryptographically verified), real internal Clinton emails, we do see what corruption looks like.

    It's getting the questions before the debate.
    It's paying people to incite violence and unrest at Trump rallies.
    It's deleting her incriminating emails. State covered it up. Asked about using White House executive privilege to hide from Congress.
    It's Bribery: King of Morocco gave Clinton Foundation $12 million for a meeting with Hillary, 6 months later Morocco gets weapons.
    It's getting the State Department to bribe FBI to un-classify Clinton emails so she wouldn't be in the wrong.
    It's Hillary being caught on tape about rigging the Palestine election.
    It's claiming Latinos are "needy". Latino outreach is "taco bowl engagement" and then denying it.
    It's the Clinton campaign being in direct communication with DOJ regarding Hillary's investigation.
    It's Bill Clinton receiving $1 million "birthday gift" from ISIS-funding Qatar while Hillary was SoS, Qatar receives arms flow increases of 1,482%.
    It's the rigging of the primaries against Bernie Sanders.
    It's the Clinton Foundation scheming with Big Pharma: keep the price of AIDS drugs high in America and NO to cheaper generic versions.
    It's like when the Democrats created fake Trump "grope under the meeting Table" Craigslist employment ad in May 2016.
    It's like Hillary’s camp getting excited about a black teen’s murder (to help her agenda).
    It's like Rigging media polls through oversampling.
    It's "Bill Clinton Inc.", how millions of dollars were raised for the Clintons. Blurred lines between personal and Foundation money.
    It's like how Hillary sold 20% of America’s uranium to Russia as SoS, and Clinton camp worried that the deal was being investigated.
    It's how Hillary is still privately against gay marriage.
    It's Admitting terrorists will infiltrate the Syrian refugee program but saying they can't or won't.
    It's how Hillary took money from homosexual-killing, women-stoning foreigners for her campaign.
    It's the huge list of sycophant reporters that Hillary privately wined and dined, including the biggest journalists and pundits of CNN, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, NY Times, and a lot more. Off the record.
    It's the Democrats using American lobbyists to money launder foreign donations illegally.
    It's The New York Times colluding with Hillary, allowed quote edits.
    It's her being tipped off by the State Department regarding Benghazi emails.
    It's Clinton campaign refusing to report sexual harassment (then forwards complaint to harasser).
    It's using a female senator to conjure fake sexist claims against Bernie.
    It's Hillary campaign caught partaking in insider trading.
    It's Hillary Clinton bragging about being invited to Putin's 'Inner Sanctum'.
    It's Hillary's team caught on tape admitting that Hillary coordinates with SuperPACs (by personally calling them and giving them orders), which is illegal.
    It's Hillary's team admitting she lies a lot, and not saying it to media.
    It's plotting to attack Obama because "his father was a Muslim".
    It's that the entire "interview" with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes is staged, reading word-for-word.
    It's that Hillary Clinton stole furniture from the State Department.
    It's that NBC colluded with the Clinton campaign.
    It's illegally coordinating with Priorities USA, a SuperPAC funded by George Soros.
    It's... a huge list and you can see more of it here (http://www.mostdamagingwikileaks.com/) with all the links to the documents.

    Of course this wouldn't have been known if it wasn't for the leaks, which is the reason we have a huge Russian investigation right now. With that going on, nobody has time to read or talk about the huge bombshells that were dropped on her and the democrats. Wikileaks did the exact same to Bush, and that time it made news for months in the mainstream media (which is heavily leftist/globalist).

    If it weren't for double standards, democrats wouldn't have any standards. They're asking the REAL questions: "Okay, nice crimes Hillary, but who EXPOSED your crimes? Was it RUSSIANS? THAT is the REAL story here! Let's keep digging at it for over a year without finding a shred of evidence, and let's then keep shrieking about it until Drumpf is impeached. Which will happen soon, I can feel it. If we just huff some more paint, everything will be aaaaalll right...".

    In your dreams. Drumpf will stay for 8 years. And then it's HER turn (Ivanka). Have fun and enjoy the ride!

    This is great. The mainstream media will apparently keep up their immature huffing and puffing, which is just creating more republicans every day, who finally wake up to the liberal "RUSSKIES UNDER EVERY BED!" lunacy:

    1. Is HRC President? If yes, see 11/8/2016. If no, go to #2.
    2. Is Donald Trump President? If no, see 11/8/2016. If yes, see Article 2, Section 4 of the United States Constitution.
    Trump is already close to having articles drawn up on him by removing Comey, as that could be construed as obstruction of justice: the same thing that took down Nixon.

    You are the one who is dreaming if you think Ivanka is coming along after. Bigly. I doubt Trump will have a second term either...assuming he even completes his first.

    A question for you...do you think Trump has done anything corrupt...anything at all?

    Stop watching so much frothing liberal media. The investigation is unimpeded with or without Comey, a man who is so incompetent that both the left and the right wanted him gone. The FBI director is like the boss at work. Comey had nothing to do with the investigation at all, except that the actual agents doing the work reported to him.

    If we believe the liberal media, yes he's Hitler. But no, he's an honest man who always attacks back because he's completely clean and has nothing to fear. He was wiretapped for 2 years and they found absolutely zero dirt on him. The worst was a "grab them... they LET YOU do it" tape from decades ago.

    Four days ago, Susan Rice's lawyers went to the FBI to seek immunity due to her ordering wiretapping on behalf of Obama. A federal crime. This is bigly.

    Trump is not the most intelligent, but he's completely driven by wanting to make America safe and great again. He wants to and is working on keeping every promise. More than can be said for every bought out and corrupt politician in Washington, which is almost all of them. Left and right. He's being impeded at every level by the corrupt deep state.

    Still, I'm very happy about his progress so far, which was achieved despite having to fight the establishment crooks. http://www.trumpometer.us

    Now imagine where we'd be if politicians weren't so corrupt. We'd be able to get everything done swiftly.

    Just because the left and right are both upset with someone does not mean they are incompetent. On the contrary, it probably means they are doing their job right and objectively. They shouldn't be favoring either party.

    And with that statement, I can no longer consider you seriously. Anyone can see that Trump lies, and lies quite often. Honest is one thing he is not.

    Of course not. @SteveJobzniak is using a private definition of corruption, and Trump cannot and will not fit into those rather artfully drawn categories.

    Ah yes, the Politifact Truth-o-meter, which rates things "Mostly False" but concedes that every fact was right but "you can't saaaay that because muh fee feees".

    "Liar!" "Mostly False!" - The birdsong of the liberal lunatics trying to discredit El Daddy God Emperor Doctor Presidente Con Mucho Ballso.

    Oh and did you know Trump just received an honorary doctorate degree? So now he is Our Doctor President Trump to you! ;-)

    We'll let the media babies tucker themselves out with their immature "Russia under every bed!!" screams for a while longer, but you'll come around soon enough.

    I never said that the investigation was unimpeded. What I said was that by removing someone who was investigating the POTUS and his ties to Russia, the POTUS can be seen as obstructing justice, which is an impeachable offense. That has always been the case, regardless of investigation. Case in point: Richard Nixon, Watergate.

    And one thing you seem to naively miss: If both the Blues and the Reds wanted him gone - both for obvious political reasons - that should tell you, me, and everyone else in this country (read: the American People) that Comey was impartial to partisan politics (read: non-partisan), meaning that he was doing something right, regardless of which political side it was for or against. So much for your statement of his "incompetence". It is too bad that you only think that the director of the FBI should only be a tool/stooge/yes man for the DoJ, let alone the POTUS.
