Nunes v Schiff and how Trump fits in

Sooo….you surely have heard about the mess created today regarding surveillance of Trump & Co.  OH, my gosh.

I watched earlier today when Devin Nunes said there’s proof that Trump WAS surveilled, blah blah blah…I thought “Hallelujah!  Trump was RIGHT! This vindicates him!”

…not so fast, Z.   Then we find out Nunes had just come out of the White House, where he supposedly told Trump (there’s a lot of talk that Trump told HIM what to say, considering that, last week, the WH said ‘you’ll know something next week’ and VOILA!) about someone telling him Trump HAD been surveilled…  Also, Nunes is saying “he can’t present the paperwork where he saw this info on ..” (what?)  Also, he never went to his own committee FIRST!  Not even the Republicans on the committee, let alone that snake Adam Schiff who’s also on the House Intel Committee!  Nunes just popped right over to the WHITE HOUSE???

WHAT WAS NUNES THINKING!??  SO, of COURSE, Schiff had a presser this afternoon during which all my hopes of vindication were TOTALLY dashed.    Again, the Republicans handing grenades on a silver platter to the Democrats.  WHY?  WHY? WHY?

Anybody here think Nunes did the right thing?  Anybody think he’s telling the truth and he did NOT get it from Trump people?

Martini time gets earlier and earlier these afternoons 🙂

PLEASE TELL ME YOUR THOUGHTS.

    You know something? I really don’t give a rat’s butt, I’m so sick and tired of it all. Donald, just cut out all this crap and keep on going with making America great again, okay?

  2. geeez2014 says:

    Oh, Mal….I agree SO MUCH. It makes me sad to hear even YOU say “Donald, just cut out all this crap…” You are SUCH a fan and I’m so disheartened…
    Something is JUST PLAIN WRONG in that White House and someone needs to GET A GRIP.

    I believe great things can be done and that TRUMP WANTS TO DO THEM! But something’s not jiving. Obviously, a lot of it’s the leftwing media, but I think Trump’s spending more time in miniscule crap like twitter wars and over reacting to every little dumb thing that gets to his ego…He needs to show great dignity, ignore that stuff, GET ON WITH THE COUNTRY’S WORK.

    And, “Great dignity” does NOT mean being a wuss and not telling the truth with background information on that truth when he wants/needs to! It just means BE A MAN….don’t take everything so personally, don’t let ANYBODY in your WH say anything that can’t be proven, and GET ON WITH IT. . How HARD IS THAT?

    If Trump didn’t give a crap about everything miniscule, he’d be FABULOUS!

    The Trump WH is giving scum like Cuomo a 70% rise in viewers on CNN…(just when CNN’s ratings had tanked)…THAT TICKS ME OFF! He says HORRID things about Trump but you almost can’t blame him! He’s probably right sometimes… 😦

    Uh . . . if you’re lookin for truth, justice, and the American way in D.C., you took a major wrong turn somewhere. Try somethin on the order of Main Street and Elm Drive in Anytown, USA, where the sign at the edge of town says, “Population 10,000.”

    And if you’re waitin for DJT to drop his leopard spot and become a tabby, good luck widdat.

  5. My thought is that Trump should really quit giving the Dems openings to slash and burn. He has a good agenda, just do it an shut up. He seems bound and determined to make everything difficult. Just go about your work and the Dems will crumble. They can really do nothing to stop him. Don’t give them ammo. Very frustrating.

  6. geeez2014 says:

    L and A…read my comments…we’re on the same page 🙂 Definitely ..you are SO RIGHT.

    Bocopro…that’s my problem …when I say he needs to act dignified, some of you think I mean I want you to go soft on stuff and I DON’T! Ronald Reagan was VERY tough and told people off pretty darned well but you never got the feeling he was thin skinned or egocentric…
    No, Mr. Trump; don’t let up, just LET IT GO….be a MAN and DO YOUR JOB, SHUT UP about every little affront.
    And, by the way, DJT….you can’t just go your merry way and say things that aren’t true….people find out in D.C. Unless you’re a Democrat; people find out and HIDE THE TRUTH 🙂

  7. Trump is Trump. He won’t listen to you or me.
    i just pray that God has his hand in it.
    So far so good.

  8. Kid says:

    What L&AT said.

    PPS – No more than 0.01% of the population will even hear about this. Maybe less.

  9. I’ve lost interest in Trump. I agree with many of his policies and appointments…but as a person, much less a “leader”……..he’s not worth my time.

  10. Kid says:

    CI, fwiw. I’ve lost interest in the person a long time ago. I only look at the actions taken or not taken.

    Do we get or 2 conservative judges? Yea man !
    Do we keep government involvement in health care? No man.

    I recently heard and I believe that politicians believe that the masses hate change so they try to avoid actual change at any cost. Which is probably true. People do hate change. I want change. If it comes from a person dressed as a clown spending most of their time in a strip club, I don’t care as long as the change is good change.. 🙂

  11. Bob says:

    I am watching Jurassic Park for the umpteenth time, and it is not as exciting as the six o’clock news! Donald Trump does some interesting things, and most people cannot imagine why he does them. He obviously jumped the gun on the Obama wire tapping thing, but he probably had good reason to do that tweet, however with no solid evidence.

    Now is appears that there was surveillance going on, and lots of it. The spin doctors are denying that the Obama administration had anything to do with it. Comey is just another lying little piece of dung, and we will never hear the truth from him. Indeed, he needs to be investigated for lying, but he frames stuff like Bill Clinton, and nobody could ever get anything on him.

    Folks, this is just getting to be exciting. If we get the anti-Obama care thing passed, it wil be clear sailing for a while. If the Obama Care replacement does not get passed, things are going to get ugly.

  12. Bob says:

    Ed: Right on!

  13. Bob says:

    Kid: Strip clubs? Heck, they’re nekkid when you get there.

  14. geeez2014 says:

    I’ll just say for the umpty-dumpth time; For those of us who hoped what Trump DID would be better than HE IS, we’re disappointed…he’s not doing much but threaten senators, tweet dumb stuff, make undocumented accusations…etc. Sure, that first week got some good executive orders overturned but…………..what since?
    They’re even saying tax reform won’t happen if healthcare doesn’t pass.
    If this healthcare thing doesn’t get voted for, …wow. AND now they’re saying if they think it won’t get voted for, they’ll pull it instead of voting…and it could take A YEAR to get it tweaked enough to be a good bill.
    I heard the WSJournal had a fabulous article in favor of it……..I haven’t read it.

    I’m disappointed in Trump; I’m glad all of you aren’t.

  15. bocopro says:

    Disappointed in PotUS . . . . hmmmmmm . . . . . let’s see, last 50 years:

    Johnson? Uh, yep.
    Carter? It is to laugh.
    Bush the Elder? Hmmmphh!
    Clinton? YGBSM!
    Bush the Sequel? Loyal, patriotic, well-intentioned mistake.
    Soetoro? Ha! I laugh on your sleeve, sir.
    Hell, I never was a fan of JFK. What did he actually accomplish?
    And I wouldn’t have bought a used car from Nixon.

    Look — if DJT can get 2 conservative judges on the high court, reinvigorate manufacturing, trim down the central gummit octopus, simplify the tax system, rebuild the military, and either reduce or not add to the debt by stimulating GDP, he’ll be the biggest success story since Jefferson and Lincoln.

  16. Bo: Nixon ended and won Vietnam.
    Would have been his legacy if not for a Dem congress that gave it back, and his loyalty to his staff (Watergate coverup).

  17. Bob: That’s Entertainment!

  18. I only look at the actions taken or not taken.

    I’ve tried that, but pathological lying is indeed an ‘action taken’. He’s brought the lions share of his grief upon himself.

  19. Z, I am not upset by Trump’s tweets about Obama’s wiretapping. There is no doubt in my mind that Trump has Obama dead to rights on this. Whether he chooses to divulge the proof of what he’s learned…. well, I suppose that depends on how Obama, his former officials, Democrats and the Media behave going forward. Guess what, they all had to admit there was NO evidence of the Trump campaign colluding with the Russians in the election. So that ended that crap right there, regardless of what Comey said about the FBI investigating it.

    I don’t think Trump is reacting with his ego to these attacks on him and his Administration. He gets what the opposition’s plans are and he’s counterpunching, keeping them off kilter. Trump is driving the game, not them!

    I wish this game was nicer, more dignified, more respectful…. It’s not. Trump didn’t create this putrid atmosphere, he’s just the first Republican President in decades to fight back. And he’s fighting back to win.

    Will this strategy work? Who the hell knows, but our dignified, “we Republicans are far too civilized to engage in that sordid vulgarity” tactic has been destroying our country. Time to kick ass and take names. At least the Left will come away bloodied and exposed as the rats they are and always have been. I like the fighter in President Donald J. Trump!

  20. FB says:

    FW is right. I think Obama acted as a true commie. In French we call that “noyauttage” and communists in France were famous for it. My dad always warned me about them planting the seeds and people in gov, businesses, and other organization to advance the agenda. That’s what Obama has done for the past 8 years.

  21. geeez2014 says:

    I think more of us need to watch the news and see utter failures happening in Trump’s grand plans and the respect Americans have for the presidency because the news portrays Trump SO badly, often based on his behavior.

    FB…my point has nothing to do with Obama being a ‘true commie’.

    FW, I do think he’s all ego. He has a hell of a lot to learn about this position…
    and no, I don’t want him to be weaker, or necessarily kinder…
    I WANT TRUTH TOLD and NOTHING that the media can gleefully run with ….

    Today it’s Nunes having to apologize….Trump’s people should have told him “Get the hell out of here and TELL THE COMMITTEE FIRST! That’s how this works! You look like a surrogate hack running in here first!” Amen.

  22. Nunes could have broken the law as well.

  23. This is not ego, Z. It’s lawlessness and President Trump is exposing it. He has every right to go after those who committed these crimes. I repeat, this isn’t ego, it’s outrage! Could it be that finally the Obama Administration’s lawlessness messed with the wrong man? I repeat my belief that President Trump would not have gone there unless he had proof.

  24. Kid says:

    I’m with FW. This a drain the swamper we are dealing with and it may take some folks a bit of time to get with the script. No offense to anyone. This kind of stuff doesn’t happen gracefully.

    And to hell with ryancare – I don’t want government involved beyond medicare and I want medicare fixed so that 50% of its cost isn’t fraud. And delete the VA. send vets to private doctors and pay for it and keep the fraud to a minimum.

    And make it so every kitty has food and a warm place to sleep.

  25. geeez2014 says:

    FW and Kid…I hope you’re right! The FBI has come out with a report tonight that says there’s paperwork pointing to Trump people collaborating with Russia…let’s hope and pray it’s BS.

    CI…Nunes probably didn’t break a law but ethically what he did was dumb.
