Did Trump Even Read the Nunes Memo?

By Karen

If Donald Trump thinks Devin Nunes’ memo about the big, bad FISA warrants on poor little Carter Page is Trump’s Get Out of Jail Free card, he clearly didn’t read the memo. As well-researched, considered, and compelling documents go, it ranks somewhere between a crock and utter bullshit.

What I don’t get is this: If Trump and circle are all innocent, why are they, and anyone willing to play defense for them, like Nunes, turning themselves inside out denying and deflecting?

If they have committed no crimes, they should be coolly confident that Mueller and his team will come up empty of all counts and conclude the investigation’s been a big nothingburger.

Never mind!

Don’t they see they’re behaving guilty and opening themselves to charges of obstruction of justice, even if there were no crimes?

Let’s cut right to the heart of it, the one major point they have yet to explain away. I’ll state it in the hyperbolic terms Trump loves so much…

No president in American history has ever had so many people around him so cozy with Russians, nor have so many Russians been involved in a president’s activities.

If it’s all good, clean fun, why weren’t they playing with England or France, instead of a country hell-bent on destroying Western-style democracy?

We now know for a FACT (just ask Facebook) that Russia flooded the U.S. with pro-Trump, anti-Clinton propaganda. If Trump’s people had nothing to do with that, why are their fingerprints all over the place?

And let’s not forget the tax returns Trump’s been so rabidly hiding. Would H&R Block vouch for them, or do they show a damning history of money laundering, tax evasion and fraud? And since he’s been president, what about Trump’s myriad conflicts of interest with businesses he still owns and profits from?

Trump probably knows his business deals make obstruction of justice the least of his worries. I have no doubt he thinks lucking into the presidency is his financial Get Out of Jail Free card because he mistakenly thinks he’s now above the law.

In the face of Russia and the financial questions, Nunes’ stupid memo as a defense is like spitting into a tidal wave, and now the FBI and DOJ must hate Trump’s guts.

I hope Mueller and his team are working at warp speed to end this madness ASAP. If not, we’ll have to wait until November when voters sweep the Trump enablers out of Congress so the new Democratic majority can begin the impeachment. By then, Trump’s incompetence will undoubtedly provide more grounds than they need.

    Unfortunately the more we on the democratic side mention collusion the more the trumpers will shout deep state conspiracy. Never mind the clatter they made of Benghazi when a few died, one who was an IT guy whose mother was trotted out to decry HRC…the guy was not a soldier enlisted to defend our country..heTOOK A JOB KNOWING HE WAS GOING INTO A DANGEROUS PLACE for money.

    Therefore she is not a gold star mother. Nor are the family of Otto Warmbier they are just grieving parents.

    Hillary is not responsible for either incident. Is Putin a mastermind or a blundering dictator?

    We need to get past his ham handed interference and address the real: trump was a flawed candidate because his screaming mortgaged debt in the 1980’s..was picked up and is now owned by Russia. Like you pointed out, the money laundering and his Byzantine business interests were propped up by the Russians, Putin merely took advantage of a crooked businessman.

    His nativist dog whistle politics are DISTRACTION. trump (actually Bannon) correctly counted on the whitelash against Obama.

    Face it the disgrace of our nation is because a “nigger” occupied the White House. It shames me to the core. We are a nation of closet, now open racists.

    Morgan, I agree with you that the Obama presidency opened the door for a Trump character to appeal to the seething bigots in this country and make it acceptable for them to express themselves again. They are too ignorant to see that Trump considers them exploitable rubes who will believe anything.

    After Trump defies his lawyers and testifies for Mueller (please, God, PLEASE let it be under oath!) and self-immolates on the obstruction charge, maybe Putin will decide to pile on and show us at least a little of what he’s got on Trump, just to show his contempt for Trump’s incompetence and stupidity.

    Every time Trump says or does something outrageous for this “base” he’s so eager to please, and which hasn’t grown by one soul since he took office, we have to take heart in the fact that there aren’t enough of them to re-elect him, by a long shot. Even if more moderate Republicans put racism and party above country and vote for him, the Democrats are now so fucking mad, we will do whatever it takes to win back every seat we can. I have faith in that.
