Would you investigate and, if necessary, prosecute information that campaign operatives of the President of the United States facilitated payments to foreign operatives in exchange for hacking political opponents? Would you appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the extent of the President's involvement? To investigate whether the President has received assurances from Russia that Putin won't use blackmail information against him because Trump has already been so cooperative over the last seven years?

Will you investigate and prosecute credible information that the President of the United States enters office having already been compromised by Russia? --Bob

Actually, now that I've poked around a little on the Internet, it's simpler than that. Attorney General Lynch can appoint someone. If she does, only the Attorney General could fire the Special Counsel, and under federal regulations, the grounds for doing so are quite narrow. --Bob

AG Lynch is a tool. She IS part of the problem, meeting privately with the spouse of the target of an ongoing investigation.

Trump won. Get over it.

There is credible evidence that American citizens conspired with a foreign government to violate federal law, including not limited to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, in order to affect the presidential election. And since those citizens were part of Trump's campaign team, and since there is likewise credible evidence that Trump has been compromised by that same foreign government, it's quite clear that a special prosecutor is warranted. Fortunately, Attorney General Lynch retains the authority to appoint a special prosecutor for the next nine days. I'll do whatever I can to get her to use it.

Trump shouldn't have a problem with this action. After all, if he really is as innocent as he claims to be, then there will be nothing for a special prosecutor to find. 8) --Bob

What credible evidence? The unlabeled, uncredited document you linked to? That looks like something your kid cooked up to jerk your chain. You didn't feel there was enough evidence to indict Hillary, yet now you want to indict Trump based on this? Gimme a break!

This isn't a classified government document. Here's an example of what a real classified document looks like:
https://www.documentcloud.org/documents ... acted.html

Some of this material is dated July. If it was real, Democrats would have made it public during the election. Revealing it now just distracts the press from important questions, like the Russian interference with the Clinton campaign (which Trump reluctantly concedes after his latest intelligence briefing) and Trump's plans to separate the White House from his business empire. I hope to hear those questions asked at today's news conference.

They may be asked, but they won't be answered and then the media will drop it because tonight Trump will blast someone else in a tweet and divert all the attention.

Q: Have you ever socialized with, been a repeated guest of, or accepted advice from a known and unrepentant domestic or foreign terrorist?

Sessions: No

I just heard Corey Booker (I work out at lunch and the TV was showing the hearings), and he just (de facto) declared his candidacy (and rather forcefully in my opinion) for the 2020 election. I expect he'll be a very visible presence the next couple of years. He's the type of new blood the Democrats need right now.

Not the way he described it. And, I think he gave a good enough answer to pass muster with those in the middle.

Plus co-sponsoring the award of a handful of medals to people who got their heads kicked in 50 years ago isn't exactly major legislation the two of them worked on together.

Yes, let's investigate all the #FAKE NEWS. Let's see if any of these allegations have any legs. But if they don't, we need to find out who leaked them and make them pay a big price.

In other news, they have decided to investigate Comey, but not Lynch to find out what happened when she met with Bill Clinton. They can knock themselves out for all I care. It's all a dog and pony show anyway. Nothing ever happens. At least when democrats get investigated.

Perhaps the reason for that is that there was never anything worth investigating. Look at all the time and money the Republicans spent of investigating Benghazi, only to find that Hillary did nothing wrong. Just the same as the the e-mail probe turned up no criminal wrongdoing.

Since the Republicans don't have either Hillary or Obama to hurl fake outrage at, their new target will be the news media for the shocking crime of actually reporting on the new.

If these 2 statements were true, Hillary would be the President-Elect right now.

FBI, 5 other agencies probe possible covert Kremlin aid to Trump

Any action by the Obama or Trump administration would be seen as political and would be self-defeating.

I agree that anything done by Trump would be seen as political, but I don't think that would stop him or that it would necessarily hurt him significantly. Nor do I think that the appointment of a special prosecutor would be self-defeating. After all, the Benghazi Committee was transparently political in intent, yet it was still able to do significant damage.

I am encouraged that Congress apparently intends to make its probe a serious one. But I'd feel better if an independent prosecutor, who won't have an incentive to go easy for political reasons, were investigating. --Bob

This is the same FBI that is accused of helping Trump be elected.
