    It's a new year and way past time for a thread devoted to the president's behavior. Nothing petty, keep it real. There's plenty to choose from.

    Of course, after he is criticized Trump goes after the attacker. This time, yet another one of the generals that he loves. Trumpers call it fighting back, I call it narcissism.

    He's talking about the National Enquirer.

    Must be some truth to the WaPo and NYT reporting over the weekend. His pattern seems to be to manufacture controversy on Twitter to distract and rile up his base when the truth starts boxing him in. Throwing out a side of raw beef for his base to devour with Warren tweet alone.

    Oh he’s definitely panicked about something.

    This morning he tweeted about how he’s looking forward to going to Nashville today.......he’s actually going to Louisiana. Time for the nursing home.

    The Senate narrowly rejected a Democratic-led effort to block President Trump from lifting sanctions against three Russian businesses. Eleven pubs voted with the Dems.

    "No president has been tougher on the Russians that me."

    Nine pages in the thread on the main board. That place is Trump central.

    Feel like the Dems should make an offer on the wall, maybe half of what Trump wants. Sentiment is on their side but could turn if the shutdown keeps going. Besides, it's time to solve this mess. It may look like they are caving but it also shows they want to fix it.

    This latest on Trump can be a game changer. It came from investigators, not just Cohen. They have other witnesses and documents. Unless Barr says the president can't be indicted, there are no other problems. Multiple sources, no privilege issues, clear violations of the law.

    I guess this is the leak SD has been waiting for.

    I would be inclined to agree with your sentiment to offer something for the wall had trump not repeatedly said that Mexico was going to pay. To be honest, that’s the standard answer I wish the Dems would give every time he mentions it. Just keep hammering it home, play the sound bites. Whatever.

    But repeatedly saying they would pay and then turning around and shutting down the government because the taxpayers won’t give the money.....well that’s on him and if he’s such a good negotiator then he should come to the table with a deal.

    I agree with you on that whole argument. Its a principle thing. But I would make an offer and make Trump turn it down. He will. Just helps the Dems and hurts him more. But more than that, this thing needs to be fixed now. People are hurting. Government is supposed to fix that, especially when they created it.

    I agree. This could have all been easily avoided if he had signed the bipartisan bill last year. But no, ghouls like Ann Coulter started shrieking in his ear and for some reason he thinks she’s important.

    I doubt a compromise would do any good, this show/shutdown isn't about a wall, it's about trying to weaken the House and keeping them from focusing on investigating him and his finances as well everything else that is coming out from other investigations. He's just doing what grifters do.

    Do you guys remember when Obama told Paul Ryan he couldn't travel for official government business because of the shut down, but then Michelle got to go to Florida three different times on the taxpayer dime for a vacay? Prior to the Trump administration the federal government had only been shut down for a cumulative 49 days...under Trump we sit at 31? What a pathetic turd of a human being.

    I think weakening the house is just a side benefit. Imo this is all about the wall.......from the standpoint of Trump holding onto his base. Coulter will demolish Trump if he gives in and restarts the government without the 5 billion for wall funding. It won't drive all the Trumpers away but will put a significant dent in his 35%. He can't afford that if he hopes to stand a chance in 2020.
    Nothing he says or does can deflect attention away from the investigations now. Maybe he thinks he can but the snowball is now picking up steam and growing.

    "The special counsel's office learned about Trump's directive for Cohen to lie to Congress through internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents.

    We'll see if there are any Republican politicians with spines left, this is unreal.

    Again if the reporting is accurate, this one is the first unmistakable, irrefutable crime against Trump. Impeachable.

    Again, "unnamed sources inside the Administration" gave Buzzfeed this "information". Buzzfeed has tremendous credibility especially considering the Russian dossier has been shown to be a sham. The FBI knew from the beginning it was highly tainted and of very questionable veracity and they used it anyway. Bruce Ohr testified to such, so don't bitch at me that I'm just a Trumper.

    At least get your facts straight. Sources were law enforcement officers involved in the investigation. There are documents and corroborating witnesses that have testified to Mueller.

    You've said a hundred times there was nothing because it would have been leaked by now. If true, you have your leak.....but you just deflect to something else. Dossier, deep state, globalism, Hillobama. You've got em all.

    Again, Buzzfeed has almost ZERO credibility, yet you immediately latched onto this "story" as if it were gospel truth. And you continue your Anti-Trump rantings and screeching. "We've got him now!"

    Lol. To you, doesn't matter WHO reports it. You won't be convinced.

    In Trumper speak, it's going to be glorious watching you ride the Trump train into the abyss......blaming everybody but himself the entire way.

    Please show where the dossier has proven to be false. Not just unproven, but definitely false. Then show me what's proven to be true. Please do the work and don't repeat the talking point.

    Here you go, Bob. Special Counsel Mueller's Office refutes Buzzfeed story.

    "Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office on Friday disputed a report in BuzzFeed News that President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen said Trump directed him to lie to Congress."

    You'll notice I always said "If". The TV networks have also been been saying they hadn't confirmed the story.
    I stand by my statement. It doesn't matter who reports anything negative about Trump, you won't be convinced.

    The overall process has been a witch hunt. Who knows why his office chose to do this, but it is a pretty rare and unusual thing to do.

    Calling it a witch hunt in the face of all evidence is pretty incredible. Thereve been a lot of witches caught. But it shows how effective repeated propaganda can be. Try following some actual news instead off blog spam sites you’re posting all the time. You’ll be better informed and an overall better person when that trash isn’t poisoning your brain.

    I've explained this to you before. When you use quotation marks, it's supposed to mean the person actually said it.
    I'm not backtracking. Do I need to explain that to you as well?
    "Again if the reporting is accurate, this one is the first unmistakable, irrefutable crime against Trump." That's how you use quotes. I stand by that statement.

    He didn't say it was false - just that there were inaccuracies in reporting of the information collected by his team. It could mean that the information was collected and shared with his team, just that it may have been done by, let's say, Southern District of NY that actually investigated Cohen.

    These guys are very measured in what they report and say, I don't think anybody can conclude anything either way. But start throwing your celebratory parties if that's what makes you happy.

    The statement by the Special Prosecutor's spokesman was "BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate"

    Yes - obtained by SDNY?

    It could be nothing, maybe a bad report from Buzzfeed (wouldn't be the first) - but I also wouldn't cheer on the witchhunt with this as evidence from the right either. Just let it play out and see what the final report brings..

    I found the language susceptible to diametrically opposed explanations. I, too, believe one must wait in order to understand what they actually mean.
