"But all the Russia stuff was true, and nobody cared."

No, it wasn't, and, yeah, everybody did.

"The Don said he could murder someone on Fifth Ave and would not be prosecuted."

Bill schtups kids: has he gone to jail?

Hill abets Bill's appetite: has she gone to jail?

"Nobody got killed when elections were subverted by foreign powers and lies."

Indeed: When Obama monkeyed 'round with Israel's elections, nobody got killed.

#

"Nobody would be prosecuted."

Of course not.

Roger Stone, confidant of Trump and WikiLeaks connection, found guilty on all seven counts
The GOP operative was charged with making false statements, obstruction and witness tampering tied to his pursuit of Russian-hacked emails in 2016.


For those keeping score at home, Stone is the 6th Trump aide convicted in regards to the Mueller probe.

You know my view on this shit, F, why I hired him, what I expect him to do.

The (orange) inkblot that looks unappealing to you, looks quite promising to me.

I'm kind of a simple guy but wouldn't obstruction of justice lead more simply to the missing big Daddy outcome as orange man didn't have anything to do with the criminality of the people he hired to do the stuff that you wanted him to do?

But they want Trump. Stone, Manafort, etc. were supposed to be way-stations, not endpoints.

Even as they crow about bringin' another down, there is much disappointment in mudville.

That was Nixon. Numerous co-conspirators went to jail. Nixon probably would have gotten off if it were not for the Pentagon Papers and so many in government (ie entire Supreme Court) that made it obvious his credibility was non-existent.

Even the Sec of Defense order the Joint Chiefs to ignore any order given by that president to go to war unless confirmed by the Secretary. Even Nixon's state of mind had become that unstable. The reasons for impeachment must be that massively beyond criminality - according to history.

So I guess Pelosi will just drop the whole thing, eh?
