    So Wikileaks released their first batch of emails on July 22 and Roger Stone is claiming that because they didn't release their first batch in August (It was what, nine days early?) that he didn't collude?

    I Don't Like When I Hear "Trump" Talk About "Large" "Numbers". It Leads Me To "Think" He Is Cutting Billions From Every Program. "Frist" "Year" In Office." So All The Billions Trump Is Cutting From "HEALTH CARE" IS GOING TO PUTIN 50 MILLION COND!!!!

    President Trump will pardon everyone, because they were prosecuted for everything but collusion and Russia meddling. Mueller ran off the rails a long time ago.

    Colbert is the medicine that keeps me going when I feel trump news fatigue setting in. From paying attention to the news, I know he is correct when he ties it all together, yet the fatigue gets pushed aside with his antidote - served with huge doses of side splitting laughter! Thank you, Stephen, Jon, and the band. Powerful medicine for the trump weary!👍😊🤣

    "Word is friend in embassy plans 2 more dumps. One shortly after I'm back. 2nd in October. Impact planned to be very damaging." Obvious explanation - this is simply a colon cleanse program. The extra fiber can indeed cause impact to be very damaging.

    The layers of bullshit and lies are growing so complex and frankly hard to believe that it's making my head spin. Not in a cute owl kind of way, more like a Linda Blair pea-soup explosion kind of way. If this were a pitch for a fictional political thriller it'd be laughed out of the publisher's office for being too far-fetched

    For any Americans out there, the guardian is a very well respected newspaper, slight left wing bias, but very stringent with sources.
    They will not have run the article without a way of confirming it. They employ fact-checkers and are one of the few papers in the UK not to make rash claims.

    That second email "word is friend in embassy plans 2 more dumps. One shortly after I'm back. 2nd in Oct. Impact planned to be very damaging..."
    Was probably just explaining how Assange was planning on taking a giant shit from the top of the embassy. "Impact planned to be very damaging". That just means that the roof of the embassy is REALLY high up. I sure wouldn't like to be hit with that from that height!

    Hey there, I remember during the 2016 election campaign, I always warned Americans that Wikileaks has been doing a dirty job. I made multiple comments on RT and CNN expecting new Hillary mails revealed. It was completely strange how I stated that Assange has been working for Trump's campaign before Mueller's discoverd that. Please google my name to find those early comments during the times Assange leaked the emails.

    all this talk about hacking and emails and not one single mention that the damaging info that russia stole and released through wikkileaks were emails that showed the DNC working against candidates in the 2016 primary in order to make sure that clinton won the nomination. why is it none of you ever mention that? you clearly have a larger and skilled research team and a full grasp of the situation. why leave out that bit?

A win win for both Republicans and Democrats alike as we would no longer have to worry about Trump weighing our beautiful party behind and the special ed class as Vice President Pence would take over!
