    I don't have a problem with the releasing of a transcript that proved that some of the GOP senators were lying. Business conducted by the Senate that isn't classified should be available to the public.

    Leaking what is said behind close doors will just lead to more of the same. The GOP should take a page from the Dems playbook and kick all the Dems out of the closed door meetings for immigration reform.... same sh*t, "different" party in charge.

    Ted, I know you’re a Libertarian and you’re one of the nicest guys on here, but your posts are almost always altright/Trump talking points. You didn’t have this routine during the Obama years. Why don’t you point out to Trump voters on here the many ways he is worse or as bad as Hillary or Obama?

    These were senate hearings, not some secret meeting about strategizing how to put a particular bill together. I have a problem with having a hearing behind closed doors and then having the Senators in that room come out in public lying about what was said to match the President's best efforts to take the heat off his own lying.

    And since I'm an honest Libertarian, next year when the dems are in charge I will be happy to criticize their dishonest shenanigans when and if they appear. Hard to believe anything can be worse than what Trump will still be doing by then though. Maybe we'll be lucky and Trump will resign.

    She disclosed, not leaked it, as that indicates an anonymous action, the closed, but not classified testimony ( which the witnesses begged to be released) because GOP senators were going along with Trump’s wishes and trying to turn him into a victim. Trump is the biggest safe spacer snowflake in the history of this country. They recommended criminal charges against Christopher Steele. That’s the only person so far. That testimony doesn’t justify it all. Nixon would’ve loved this congress.

    Feinstein should have taken it up with the chair if she got "pressured" by someone to release the transcript. If the chair refused then she could have given her story to the press. She shouldn't blame it on a "bad cold". That is yet another dumb*ss move.

    Yes, I am all for unsealing and releasing records as well... let's unseal all those documents that the Obama administration put under wraps. Just what happened to that border agent with that Fast and Furious. There are too many secrets that the government clearly doesn't want the public to know. Until we actually have the most "transparent administration in history" then I guess we will have to depend on Wikileaks, DCLeaks, and such for our transparency in government.

    WTF?...

    Gallup: Trump approval highest among Mormons

    According to a recent Gallup poll, President Trump's job approval is highest among Mormons, and lowest among Muslims.


    Trump's job approval is well above average for Mormons, marked at 61%. However, this approval is more frosty among Muslims, for whom his approval only clocks in at 18%.
    According to the poll, Jews' approval was 26%, whereas Catholics' was 38%, which is similar to the national average.
    The full job approval ratings are as follows:

    • Mormons: 61%
    • Protestant/Other Christian: 48%
    • National adults: 39%
    • Catholic: 38%
    • Jewish: 26%
    • None/Atheist/Agnostic: 23%
    • Other non-Christian religion: 22%
    • Muslim: 18%

    US ambassador to shithole country Panama resigns because he can no longer stand working for the very stable genius in the White House. Who cares what Panama thinks, it’s not like they control a vital canal or anything.

    A Republican president would normally have 90%+ approval among Mormons, no? So 61% is shockingly low compared to the norm. Also, kind of annoying they didn't break out Christian Evangelicals as a separate category since they'd undoubtedly be higher than Mormons, never mind the fact that there is typically a significant difference between Evangelicals and mainline Protestants when it comes to politics. I work in research, so I tend to think about these methodological things.

    His efforts to rehabilitate his image now are laughable.

    Why don't you focus your criticism cannon on "Drumpf" for a second, instead of trying to minimize, deflect and mitigate everything? The guy is the worst POTUS of my lifetime.

    Steve Bannon suggests Trump's lawyer 'took care' of 'a hundred' women during the presidential campaign

    Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump's former top strategist, alleged in journalist Michael Wolff's tell-all book about the Trump White House that the president's longtime attorney, Marc Kasowitz, "took care" of 100 women during the presidential campaign.

    "Look, Kasowitz has known [Trump] for twenty-five years. Kasowitz has gotten him out of all kinds of jams," Bannon reportedly said. "Kasowitz on the campaign — what did we have, a hundred women? Kasowitz took care of all of them."

    This apparently off-hand remark may take on new significance after The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that another lawyer for the president, Michael Cohen, sent $130,000 to a porn star just weeks before the 2016 presidential election to keep her silent about an alleged 2006 sexual encounter with Trump.

    The Journal reported that Cohen, who was the Trump Organization's top attorney for about a decade, arranged for the payment to Stephanie Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, in October 2016 after a negotiation between her lawyer and Cohen on a nondisclosure agreement.

    Clifford has said privately that the encounter happened at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, the newspaper reported.

    Trump married his third wife, Melania Trump, in 2005.

    Cohen said in a statement to The Journal that Trump "once again vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms. Daniels." Cohen also did not address any payment.

    You may want to look at an affidavit of a person alleged to have received hush money to keep quiet a little more skeptically. The story is getting corroborated pretty quickly.
