For anyone who thinks Bush 41 was great...

That's Bush with Reagan in 1982, and a little slimeball known as Roger Stone.

Here are some other topics for the House to investigate

The House D's need to approach this carefully as soon as the new Representatives are sworn in and committee assignments are made.

They will also need to make as much progress as possible on healthcare, economy, etc (and it won't be easy), while, at the same time, investigating the hell out these crooks for the last two years.

Besides 2016 Election and Russia, some other areas to consider:

-Brian Kemp's Secretary of State's office in handling GA federal elections: hopefully, this will tell us what really went on in terms of voter suppression

-Trump family corruption and taxes

-Devin Nunes and his "handling" of Russia investigation

Feel free to add!

Google News headlines

Does anyone understand exactly how Google News sets up its headline page? Particularly in relation to politics?

For the last couple of hours, the number one story is "Aides Quietly Stunned by Trump's Respectful Handling of Kavanaugh Accuser" by CNN. Does anyone really believe this is the top story?

During the 2016 general election, I routinely saw minuscule publications making the top stories and I realized that there was a great deal of manipulation going on.

If anyone understands how this is manipulated, please share the secret!

Lawyer who drafted Nunes memo once brutally slapped by judge with order of ineptitude

Wow!

The congressional staffer who wrote the controversial memo for Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) was once benchslapped by a federal judge for “ineptitude.”

Kash Patel, a top Nunes staffer and senior counsel for the House Intelligence Committee, traveled to London last summer to question the former British spy who wrote the Trump-Russia dossier.

Patel and another Nunes staffer, Doug Presely, went on the research mission without notifying the U.S. embassy or British government.

They also failed to inform the committee’s ranking Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) or GOP Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), who took over the panel’s Russia probe after Nunes stepped aside over ethics concerns.

The pair, along with intel committee staffers Damon Nelson and Andrew House, wrote most of the memo the White House and House Republicans claims exposes FBI wrongdoing and justifies ending the special counsel investigation into Russian campaign interference.

Patel was issued a rare “order of ineptitude” in 2016 by U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes, who faulted the lawyer’s handling of the prosecution of Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, who was accused of trying to support ISIS.

“What is the utility to me and to the people of America to have you fly down here at their expense, eat at their expense and stay at their expense when there are plenty of capable people over there, in this room plus over there?” Hughes said. “You’re just one more nonessential employee from Washington.”

“You don’t add a bit of value, do you?” the judge added.

Other lawyers said they’d never an attorney slapped so hard from the bench.

“It is just a slap in the face, is what it is,” South Texas law professor Geoffrey Corn told the Houston Chronicle. “When you are a judge, you get the prerogative of saying what you feel and putting it in a Ruling of Ineptitude. I’ve never seen anything like that.”

The Washington Post described the spectacle as “a Texas-size bollocking over proper attire, wasting taxpayer money and spying for the bureaucrats in Washington.”

There "is" no collusion

Has anyone noticed that the Idiot-in-chief almost always says "there is no collusion" when referring to Russian election meddling. On a few occasions, he does use the past tense, but at least from what I've observed or heard, he almost always uses present tense, or sometimes present perfect tense, when discussing the collusion issue.

I wonder if this is another "it depends on what the meaning of 'is' is" defense that he is laying? Am I just imagining this??

I am sure Mueller's team will not let him get away with games like this if they get him under oath.
