    When you view Trump's actions through the lens of a mob boss, things do seem to make much more sense. The loyalty pledges especially.

    Also don't forget that Trump has had his share of connections to the mob himself. Roy Cohn, his lawyer and mentor, famously represented the Gambinos among many other mobsters. Anyone who has followed Trump since the 80's and 90's wouldn't be surprised that he acts more like a mob boss than a president.

    A new dot? Along with money laundering, the electronic media cooperation between trump's campaign and Russia is an important part of the investigation.

    Amazing. So the FBI launched their investigation before they ever got their hands on the Steele Dossier.

    In addition, the GOP members of the committee have been misrepresenting the testimony. Great job to release this testimony.

    This good post reads almost quaint and naive after reading the Fusion GPS testimony. These times of ours...

    Funny story. Fusion GPS stopped working with the FBI, since it appeared to them that the FBI was in Trump's pocket.

    I know that I have heard the saying throw around that, "there is a tweet for everything."

    But my god there really is. Does twitter show your total number of tweets? Does he have 100k or something??

    All of his tweets have been archived and are trotted out as needed -- even if he deletes them they will still be available as images.

    I wonder if there are some laws regarding the storing of all trump tweets as they have been described off-and-on as official statements from the president?

    I doubt it, but I'm sure he'll have his lawyers try to fight it in court if he thinks it's necessary. The Trump Tweet archive has about 33,000 tweets arranged in a searchable database broken down into collections by subject

    Grey area? But we have seen court already taken into account his campaign speech. His Tweets as POTUS - I don't know why it wouldn't be used and considered. And it should be. He's making those statements to the world. Your words do matter, especially as a #stableGenius.

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned

    Do something, Melania

    Also, isn't it crazy that an adult film actress could have stopped President Stable Genius from happening? Feel like she sold out America for 25 pieces of silver.
