    After the evidence/report is submitted and the conclusions drawn, if all the suspicions that have been asserted (and then some) are true, all the appointments, laws, and policies under Trump should be rescinded, struck down, and reversed. Illegitimate 'president' elected by illegitimate means.
    If Mr. MUELLER's report finds nothing, no Russian influence, no financial misdeeds, no crimes of any kind, I will, along with those of like mind, will conceed the "Witch hunt" was indeed a plot and therefore appologize and capitulate.
    But When/if the evidence bears out, we expect the same from the misled minority.
    Thank you,

    How is it possible that people are still defending Trump? Melania isn't going to Florida to work, shes going home. The speaker was going to be doing actual international relations. How is it okay to allow him to approve that kind of spending for personal use rather than goverment. It's not. If Pelosi isn't allowed to go, Melenia is allowed to go. Trump should've at least gone for Pelosi at the very least.

    WHAT am I listening to??!!
    "MSNBC." NO WONDER!! THAT explains it!! THAT is WHY I hear this EXTREMELY BIASED REPORT!! I am, also, listening to a LOT of people, who do NOT KNOW everything that has gone on, OR you do, BUT you refuse to acknowledge anything that might make the president look good. Afterall, the Rothschilds OWN YOU, and tell you what to say. First of all, you guys are EXTREMELY ARROGANT!! You have NO IDEA WHAT President Trump knows and does not know!! He is a BRILLIANT man!! And BTW, while Nancy was on VACATION in Hawaii on a "religious holiday" (Yeah ... SURE ... SHE, who worships Lucifer, was on a "religious holiday.") the President and First Lady went to Iraq to visit the troops for no more than one day on Christmas. Did you know that Nancy Pelosi was taking 93 FAMILY MEMBERS with her on that trip overseas (something that she does quite frequently)? I am sure that she did a lot of government business ... NOT!! Do you NOT KNOW that Pelosi and Clinton had a plan to assassinate the president and vice-president, so that she could be president on Monday, and that she flew commercial with her 93 FAMILY MEMBERS, so that she could not be accused of being involved in the bombing of the White House? She must have been very desperate to get out of the country to spend up to a million dollars on that trip. Do you NOT REALIZE ANY of THAT??!! Do you mention ANYTHING about the president and vice-president almost being assassinated??!! NO, you do NOT!! Instead, you praise the person who plotted the assassination!! You IDIOTS!! I hope that you like being the Rothschilds' "puppets," and that it makes you feel real proud of yourselves for your reporting of the "truth" (as the Rothschilds see it). Have they promised you a good position, when they take over the world, or will you guys continue to be their puppets? Better watch out. They might cut your strings right over the FIERY PIT!!

    One thought just occurring to me is if the Atlanta airport, due to a strike shuts down during the week leading up to the Super Bowl. There are a lot of corporate big shots (and politicians) who like to attend these events (events beyond the means of most working Americans).
    That would likely lead to a huge amount of pressure on the GOP and Trump to surrender and re-open the government.
    An interesting thought, because I can just imagine the reaction of the NFL and the billionaire owners who would be facing a massive disaster at the prospect of having to postpone or relocate the game. It would certainly cost the league a massive amount of money.
    That Georgia Senator may regret putting that idea out there, because it would have a massive, negative impact on the economy of Georgia, and really anger the voters there.

And go too Afghanistan, to handle government business. Welcome t stupid world. And he tells her to fly commercial. This administration of liars and thieves. Are also as stupid as their president.

    But it was ok for first Lady Obama to take 35 of her closes friends on Air Force One to Africa on our dime vacationing and shopping. The shutdown has nothing to do with this. She went to Florida and probably would have been just fine flying the family jet but wait, she could not because she has to be protected by the S.S. Sorry not her fault. Rules are rules. Believe me the Trump organization has not wasted near the money the previous white house occupants did. C'mon people be real. Call Pelosi's office and tell her to sign the papers and get the 100s of thousands of American government workers back to work. Thie is not a Red vs Blue issue, It's a Red, White and Blue issue, fix it.
