'This is the biggest political story ever'--experts react to the Trump-Russia FBI investigation

'Move over Tea Pot Dome scandal and move over Watergate, thereís a newer, bigger, more dangerous political scandal coming to lightóthe FBI initiated an investigation into whether Donald Trump, President of the United States, is working on behalf of the Russian government, against American interests. Repeat: the FBI opened a counterintelligence operation because they had reason to believe the president was not acting in the interested of the United States. If true, it amounts to nothing short of treason. To gauge just how big this scandal truly is, letís look at reactions from legal experts, former U.S. Intelligence officers and journalists.'>>>

3. Time will tell, but the FBI must have had exceptional info that something was very wrong.

..And I think this investigation into Trump started very early into his administration. But we will all find out ...sooner or later. Probably later. Quite a story..

4. The penalty for his those complicit treacherous dangerous deeds should be likewise, unprecedented.



Not just him, but his family, and every republican who caught even the faintest wind of these high crimes. Empty the prisons of their current killers and rapists and fill them with this clan of evil doers.

6. I bet there is enough space in Gitmo for the dump mob and the (R) critters

And I bet we can make Cuba pay for their lodging. (Of course, we'll send a big aid package to compensate.)

Rest of the enablers/crooks can take their 20+ years in Leavenworth or a dark site, not of their choice.

14. The penalty for treason

The only true penalty for Treason is DEATH. To EVERYONE complicit with these "high crimes". Kids, cabinet members, administration, advisors, RNC, NRA administration, any Senators or House members, etc etc etc.

Everyone he appointed, including Supreme court justices, judges, etc etc etc should be wiped out. Every thing he has done should be immediately reversed, etc etc etc. Of course, in a truly fair world, Hillary and her crew should be installed immediately, perhaps with the assistance of Obama, and we should get on with things as they should have happened if Trump/Republicans hadn't corrupted and stolen the election with Russian assistance. In a fair world........

For the record, I believe that life in prison is a far worse punishment than death. (As McVeigh demonstrated) But in this incredibly egregious act, the Death sentence is definitely called for. He and his cronies screwed 300+ million of us for the sake of he and his greedy psychotic minions.........

9. One more point..If Trump was doing this from the beginning, and the FBI has proof of his wrongdoing,

then the show is over................................
That proof is the basis for these allegations, and the investigation that followed. That proof is the reason that we are reading about this...And last, and most important, that proof must be substantial and extremely important for the FBI to take such action. Also, that proof is probably quite damning to Mr.Trump and his gang.......
....If it wasn't, then why start the investigation into a sitting President of the U.S.?

13. Most smart mob bosses insulate themselves from the crimes their organizations commit

 

but tRump isn't very smart and putin has been playing him and the repug party like a cheap piano. As tRump said himself today, elections have consequences.

15. Just ask Mitch

He knows.

Everyday we should reassure Mitch. He does not want to
talk about it, but he knows.

Where is Mitch?
