    The hearing, scheduled for 10 a.m. Eastern, will focus on Russian interference during the election.


    It'll be interesting to hear what the FBI director has to say on these two issues.

    There is very unlikely to be a finding of direct collusion here. The espionage didn't require it. The propaganda coming out of the Kremlin didn't require it. I'm interested in the money laundering and shell companies.

    I think there will be a smoke but no fire report. Both sides will claim vindication. Nothing will change. Trump can claim no collusion but why was Flynn fired from his staff, why was Manafort and Carter fired during his campaign? Why do many secret meetings between Russian officials and campaign and WH staff? Trump's claims of being friends with Trump, than claiming to never have met him etc?

    Trump's tweet is interesting in that he's saying POTUS ie himself was cleared by Comey, is that just due to the twitter character limit or is he being precise for a reason and his campaign might have been connected and he wants to separate himself from his campaign staffers?

    Then there was this of course - A direct appeal from then candidate Trump to Russian hackers -



    It will be interesting to see Comey's word treated as gold in this instance, but when he stated Hillary did nothing illegal and that there was no chance for indictment his word was discounted and discredited as political.

    What was worse? Begging and offering reward to a foreign power to hack a US presidential candidate, or begging Second Amendment people to assassinate a US presidential candidate?

    Funny how misdiagnosing malicious events and forensics have become a beating drum that Russia is behind hacks lol.

    Expressed wishes that Russia finds Hillary's 33,000 emails.

    You - "He begged Russia to hack Hillary, and even offered them a reward!"

    Asks 2nd Amendment people to stand up for their right.

    You - "He begged gun owners to kill Hillary Clinton!"

    This entire post is a lie.

    You can't rewrite history to fit your narrative.

    It's going to be nothing but political grandstanding.
    This is all about creating talking points and drama for the fake news networks.

    Nothing substantial will come from this other than vague innuendos.

    This hearing is boring. So far its all "can't talk about that". I'm about to bail on it and switch to watching youtube vids of people cutting random things with a hot knife.
