Pollster Claims Stewart Leads Gillespie in VA

Some polling outfit (Change Research) I have never heard of before has released a new poll for the gubernatorial primary races in Virginia and it claims Corey Stewart is now ahead of Ed Gillespie on the Republican side.

GOVERNOR – VIRGINIA – GOP PRIMARY (Change Research)
Corey Stewart 42%
Ed Gillespie 41%
Frank Wagner 16%

GOVERNOR – VIRGINIA – DEM PRIMARY (Change Research)
Tom Perriello 54%
Ralph Northam 46%

This poll was done June 8-10 among likely primary voters. Republicans in Virginia might as well just give up trying to win here if they are going to make Corey Stewart the face of the party this year. I guess we will find out tomorrow night.

    Nothing beats the smell of a clean sheet in the morning!

  3. Jonesy says:

    Like to Wes’ take on the Va polls. Periello is very far left?

  4. Walt says:

    Dave W.,

    Thanks for the new thread.

  5. Chicon says:

    What will Trump do today to prevent the Republicans in Congress from passing the stuff they promised their voters.

    He’s doing nothing to stop them, but he is providing effective cover for their inaction.

  6. Jonesy says:

    Chicon, a tough call on the Trump Tweets. Is it not the only way to talk directly to the American Public with 32 million followers, and avoid MSM censorship?

  7. Wes says:

    Jonesy, Northam is the kind of pseudomoderate establisment Dem such as Warner and Kaine that’s been successful in VA lately. Perriello was a far-left one-term Congressman elected on Obama’s and Warner’s coattails in 2008 whose reflexive liberalism cost him reelection in 2010. Neither is particularly strong, but Perriello would probably be the weaker candidate.

    On the GOP side, Gillespie is the only genuinely viable candidate.

  8. Wes says:

    I sincerely hope the GOP can flip VA-Gov since NJ-Gov is a guaranteed loss.

  9. Chicon says:

    I understand, Jonesy. Let’s assume that Trump’s all wrong on messaging, is scandal ridden and dirty, and is doing an all-around bad job.

    Imo, that doesn’t relieve the Congress of the obligation to pass the type of legislation the members promised while running.

  10. Chicon says:

    I see that Megyn Kellys is taking some heat for giving a platform to Robbie’s guy, Alex Jones.

  11. Jonesy says:

    7. Thanks Wes

    9. I agree Chi, and from what I hear the Senate is moving forward on Health Care. And then hopefully Judges ( the one thing that cannot be reversed in D.C)

    What will Trump do today to prevent the Republicans in Congress from passing the stuff they promised their voters.
    He’s doing nothing to stop them, but he is providing effective cover for their inaction.

    – Passing major legislation like health care reform or tax reform takes presidential leadership and persuasion. It’s the president who has to settle the disputes and provide direction.

    For instance, Paul Ryan and Kevin Brady want a border adjustment tax to satisfy the reconciliation requirement of revenue neutrality while others like Tom Cotton don’t. So long as that dispute continues, tax reform is in limbo.

    Ultimately, it will be Trump who has to decide the thorny issues that hold up healthcare reform and tax reform, but as long as he’s focused and battling extraneous issues there will be no progress on legislation because the ultimate arbiter of the issues himself is distracted.

    I see that Megyn Kellys is taking some heat for giving a platform to Robbie’s guy, Alex Jones.

    – Why in the world would you say something like that? I can’t stand Alex Jones or the insane conspiracies he pushes. I don’t know what your game is, but promoting a lie like this is really disgusting.

  14. Chicon says:

    12 – right, the last Congress never got anything passed…..

  15. Chicon says:

    13 – everyone realizes that….that’s the joke….

  16. Robbie says:

    Just so we’re all clear, Alex Jones believes 9/11 was an inside job and the Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax.

    That Chicon would write such a bald faced lie suggesting I like Alex Jones is low even by the standards of HHR.

    This won’t be forgotten, Chicon.

  17. Robbie says:

    Yep, Alex is repulsive. Giving him a press pass was stupid.

    – Ivana, not Ivanka.

  34. Phil says:

    EVERY Supreme Court decision comes down to Kennedy.

  35. Chicon says:

    A bit of an exaggeration, Phil, but often the case in tight ones. Gorsuch just wrote his 1st opinion – a 9-0 case.

  36. Phil says:

    What do you suppose the NYT and Time Warner would have to say about a play that graphically acted out the assassination of President Obama?

    Not really a question. We know the answer. They would demand it be closed down and a nation wide boycott of all sponsors.

    Seriously, folks. The left is insane, but I have never, ever seen it this unhinged. They won’t stop until Trump is driven from office. Will they succeed? Only if they can find something illegal to get him with – a search they engage in 24/7. If they can’t find it they will move heaven and earth to manufacture it.

  37. Chicon says:

    36 – agree on the unhinged part. I think, though, that it’s going to hurt them at the ballot box.

  38. wraith says:

    Whom the gods destroy, they first drive insane.

  39. Phil says:

    37

    Yes, their insane hatred has created behavior that shows signs of overreach. They don’t appear to have the ability of self control. They get angrier by the day and, thus, more and more desperate on a daily basis.

    It doesn’t help that they live in a leftist buble and therefore constantly reinforce each other’s anger and madness.

  40. Chicon says:

    39 – exactly how I see it.

    Old media having trouble

  43. Robbie says:

    Newt Gingrich, Laura Ingraham, and Ann Coulter have all either suggested or hinted that Trump should fire special council Robert Mueller. I can’t imagine Trump would do something like that, but the firestorm would be epic if he did.

  44. NYCmike says:

    “He’s doing nothing to stop them, but he is providing effective cover for their inaction.”

    -He would be providing better coverage for their ACTION, IF they get some things going.

  45. Phil says:

    Trump faces unpleasantness either way. Fire the guy and the firestorm will be epic. Keep him on and you’ve got Comey’s buddy Mueller all over his ass.

    What Trump was thinking keeping that snake Comey on at the beginning of his term is beyond me. I will never understand it. He could have fired the guy day one and even Democrats ticked at Comey for the campaign would have been just fine with it. I just don’t understand what Trump was thinking.

  46. Robbie says:

    I can’t think of a dumber thing Trump could do so I guess he may just do it. This would be the Saturday Night Massacre on steroids.

    Judy Woodruff?
    @JudyWoodruff

    .@ChrisRuddyNMX tells me Pres Trump is “considering perhaps terminating” Robert Mueller as special counsel @NewsHour

  47. Phil says:

    Like I said, screwed either way. Fire him and all hell breaks loose. Keep him on and you have Comey’s butt buddy investigating your administration. That ought to be a fair investigation.

  48. Tina says:

    Uh phil, he cannot do that, only the ag, or acting ag. These loons do not know anything.

  49. Tina says:

    And its genius now, because a leaker was exposed, comedy triggered a sp by fraud, and the memos have disappeared.

    Uh phil, he cannot do that, only the ag, or acting ag. These loons do not know anything.

    – Yes, Rosenstein is the boss of the special council, but, if Trump ordered him to fire Mueller and Rosenstein wouldn’t do it, Rosenstein will either resign in protest or be fired by Trump. Then Trump would just fire Mueller.

  54. Tina says:

    Yeah, muh russian baloneyy.

    Chicon says:

    Robbie – apparently Mueller has hired a bunch of Clinton donors. Doesn’t look very non-partisan.

    – So says Newt Gingrich. And even if some donated money to Hillary, who cares? I’m sure there are people on the staff who donated to Republicans.

    Should only those who either didn’t donate or donated only to Republicans be part of Mueller’s staff? If so, then that’s making partisanship the only criteria.

    Most importantly, if Trump has nothing about which to be worried (that’s my view about collusion), then what does he have to fear from Mueller? Mueller will never make an obstruction case and he can’t compel Trump to testify anyway.

  56. Tina says:

    If mueller was comedys friend, bff, for 15 years, then he can recuse, and follow sessons lead? We want a fair process here.

  57. Tina says:

    I am hearing more chatter that mueller gave blanket immunity to comedy.

  58. Robbie says:

    When are people going to learn not to pay attention to Newt Gingrich? There’s a reason he got booted from the Speakership in late 1998. Gingrich is on the airwaves making these claims about Mueller because he knows Trump is watching and he knows Trump likes people who go on TV and fight for him. Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter are doing the very same thing. This is about keeping the base activated, engaged, and angry.

  63. Tina says:

    Jim Acosta @Acosta
    Source close to Trump says the president “is being advised by many people” NOT to fire special prosecutor Robert Mueller.

  64. Phil says:

    Mueller is a special prosecutor? What crime is he supposed to be prosecuting anyway?

  65. Robbie says:

    Phil says:
    June 12, 2017 at 8:21 pm
    Mueller is a special prosecutor? What crime is he supposed to be prosecuting anyway?

    – He’s a special council, not a special prosecutor. That’s precisely because no crime had been uncovered when Mueller was appointed.

    But let’s not forget none of this would be happening had Trump not fired Comey. I think Comey should have been replaced on Day 1, but, once Trump decided to let him stay, firing him in the middle of this investigation was insane.

  66. Tina says:

    Factuakky untrue, what was he investigating. Whatever it was, did not involve trump directly. Comedy had 3 chances to coear the record, plus he would not allow mccabe to publicly clear him,

    The sp will die on its own, cannit have one when there is no crime.

  67. Tina says:

    Maybe sessions unruces tomorrow,

  68. Tina says:

    Surely, sessiins can indict comedy for leaking. He shoukd do it. Where is the memo? Where is the professor?

    Narcissism combined with delusion. Mental Health Services are an essential health benefit under the ACA. Go seek help.

    The cognitive dissonance and mental illness on display by the far right would be saddening if only you weren’t in a position to enable a narcissistic liar of a president.

    You had your chance to effect meaningful conservative change that would help all Americans.

    Instead you doubled down on supporting a profiteering bastard who has done nothing to help anyone ever.

    Congrats dumbsh*ts. Good job drinking the Koch Brother Kool Aid.

  75. Phil says:

    Robbie, yes Comey should have been fired day one. Trump screwed himself by not doing so. Firing him four months later just created a whole mess of trouble for himself. Apparently, he felt he could manage Comey. Uh, wrong!

    BTW, go over Powerline and read Paul Mirengoff’s latest posting entitled “Mueller’s Disturbing Staffing Decisions”

    After you read that come back over here and let me know if you still think Trump is facing anything half way impartial. There is no crime, but if you were Trump how would you feel about facing Mueller’s new “team”. I call that about as close to a stacked deck as you can get.

    Can’t fire Mueller politically, and that lineup assembled by Mueller is just plane scary.

  76. Phil says:

    All the usual haters will be triggered. Who the f cares?

  78. Phil says:

    Oh, and the Koch brothers didn’t support Trump in the primaries and stayed on the sidelines during the fall campaign, dipsh*t.

    Koch brother’s koolaid my ass. Get your facts straight.

  79. janz says:

    #75 Phil, I saw that article in powerline earlier. Basically, Trump is caught between a rock and a hard place, regarding the options of either firing Mueller or keeping him in place.

    It definitely begs the question, however, as to why Trump’s Deputy AG picked Mueller in the first place. He must have been aware of Mueller’s close association with Comey, and his general liberal bent.

  80. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Here is the latest in the GA CD-6 runoff. Also, comparison data is provided:

    Early Vote 2016:
    Total 186k
    GOP: 66k (35%)
    No Primary: 85k (46%)
    Dem: 35k (19%)

    Early Vote 1st Round 2017:
    Total 56k
    GOP: 19k (34%)
    No Primary: 20k (35%)
    Dem: 17k (30%)

    Early Vote 2nd Round 2017 Thus Far:
    Total 103k
    GOP: 37k (36%)
    No Primary: 42k (41%)

  81. Bitterlaw says:

    Hmmmmmmmm. Let’s consider the options.

    1. Trump allows the Special Prosecutor to do his job. If there is nothing to discover, he will discover nothing.

    2. Trump fires the Special Prosecutor or demands that he be removed. He looks guilty for this action and the controversy again delays his agenda.

    I would choose Option 1.

  82. Bitterlaw says:

    Phil – Pennsylvania’s primary was too late to stop Trump. I voted for Kasisch because my first 2 choices – Christie and Rubio – had dropped out. Poster Trump proves once again that he both an idiot and a douche.

    Moron doesn’t know how this circus works.

    When there is no crime, they find process violations. They have a victim, now they are looking for a crime.

    Ask scooter Libby what crime he committed.

  86. Trump says:

    The fu cked up lawyer loves these witch hunts by lawyers. They bill by the hour.

  87. Tina says:

    I am for the sp.

    But mueller has a conflict of interest with comedy, or at least the appearance of one.

    Thus, he needs to quit and there needs to be an sp.

    I still remain for the sp, but the sp needs to identify what he or she will be looking at and provide a time frame.

    We had one year already of investigations with nothing found.

    Is the sp now looking at clintune corruption, the leaks, etc.? He was directed by the associate ag to look intoe those areas, but justice can do it on its own.

    It will be hard to do that re mueller and comedy.

  88. Tina says:

    The concerns that mueller granted immunity to comedy are concerning. I hope those whispers are wrong.

  89. Phil says:

    Granting immunity to Comey combined with “the team” Mueller has hired (look it up, it is ridiculous) is hardly Justice. It is like a conservative trying to take his case to the circuit court of appeals in California.

    Appalling if you believe in justice. Complete stacked deck. Comey gets immunity? Give me a break. Mueller must think he is bullitproof and can just do anything.

  90. Bitterlaw says:

    The fu cked up lawyer loves these witch hunts by lawyers.

    Did Trump work for the Clinton Foundation, also. If so, I must have missed that.

    Did you read the Powerline article I referenced to you last night? Not something that should just casually be dismissed.

  96. NYCmike says:

    “– I know of another person involved in this process who has a long history of donating money to Democrats. Donald J Trump.”

    -Robbie,

    If you are going to go the jason-route with the donations game, did the lawyers who donated to Dems ALSO DONATE TO REPUBLICANS?

    Or are you going to just ignore that part of Trump’s donation history (just like jason, scooter, and Bitterlaw regularly did) to make you feel like you caught Chicon in a blunder?

  97. Wes says:

    It’s good to see Handel is now tied. She really needs to get Republicans to turn out in force for the runoff.

  98. Phil says:

    Wes, I guess the strategy of tying Ossoff to Pelosi and the national Democrats has drawn blood. Tried and true strategy for the GOP. The question is whether it will be enough. Could go either way.

  99. NYCmike says:

    “Did you read the Powerline article I referenced to you last night?”

    -Phil,

    Seriously? Robbie read Powerline? That is not linked to the NY Times or WAPO.

  100. Tina says:

    Trump tweeets this am that lynch was a political hack.

    Glad that muhnrussian is sdead and now focus is in lynch.

  101. Tina says:

    Handel seems to be closing since muh russian collapse and her debate performance. Heard it was well. So off had that long pause, not a pregnant pause, a relalky long pause, when he could not answer the living innthe district question.

  102. Tina says:

    Legal folks.

    Does an sp typically meet with a witness to clear or review his testimony in advance?

    This seems unusual.

  103. Jonesy says:

    92. Sean Trende was a joke on election day 2016. He was pushing doom that Trump was not running up the numbers in rural Indiana. Of course Indiana was called 2 seconds after polls closed.

    Trende is a GOPe. Bevan kissed Obama’s butt

  104. jason says:

    did the lawyers who donated to Dems ALSO DONATE TO REPUBLICANS?”

    NYC still selling this rotten red herring?

    I guess he is still looking for a “R” nominee that gave more money to Democrats than Republicans.

  105. Jonesy says:

    Can someone here, tell me one instance where Real Clear Politics had any positive analysis on Trump against Hillary?

    They blew the election worse than Robbie

  106. Jonesy says:

    105. Jason, what disturbs me is that Mueller is staffing for the long haul. like P Fitzgerald with Scooter Libby.

  107. jason says:

    Trende is a straight shooter, he calls it as he sees it.

    Not always right, but he doesn’t have any axe to grind. And he is right more often than wrong.

    He is probably right that if the election was held today the GOP would lose… but the election is not today.

  108. jason says:

    Yeah, I think Mueller is a grave concern. He shoule recuse himself but won’t. But firing him is not a good option either.

    “Did you read the Powerline article I referenced to you last night?”
    -Phil,
    Seriously? Robbie read Powerline? That is not linked to the NY Times or WAPO.

    – Sorry to disappoint you, NYCMike, but I did read the story.

    On the other hand, have you ever branched out past conservative news sources to get your news, or do you just silo yourself?

  110. jason says:

    RCP was pretty close on their average….I think their final was Hillary +3 and she ended up about +2.

    They had plenty of pro-Trump articles posted. And anti-Hillary too.

    I don’t think they were anti-Trump per se, they just didn’t think he would win.

  111. jason says:

    On the other hand, have you ever branched out past conservative news sources ”

    Translation: do you read all the left wing garbage I regurgitate here?

  112. Jonesy says:

    Fair enough Jason, but I gave up on them when they had Hillary +7 after Labor Day. I think they need dump university polling, if they ever want to be respectable again

  113. Jonesy says:

    The arrogance of Landslide Robbie amazes me here. If I had predicted a blowout for Hillary, I would disappear like MD, Cory etc..

    All of his GOPe sources were wrong in 2016, but he continues to quote them

  114. Robbie says:

    I see no reason, yet, for Mueller to recuse himself. In Washington DC, everyone knows everyone. He’s a straight shooter and had an exemplary tenure as FBI director. He was a G W Bush appointee after all.

    Trump’s and his allies “concerns” about Mueller have nothing to do with Mueller. They’re simply trying to delegitimize the process. And frankly, they’re following the playbook Clinton and his team used to discredit Ken Starr in the 1990’s. It worked as well.

    Newt and Ingraham know Trump can’t realistically fire Mueller because it would create a massive firestorm that could lead to a bi-partisan impeachment process. But they do think if they can muddy Mueller up it will cause Trump’s hardcore base of 35% or so to ignore whatever Mueller finds. And at this point, I think Trump and his advisors have decided they can survive with 35% support because it will disproportionately come from safe Republican districts.

  115. Robbie says:

    I don’t get the hate for RCP. They aggregate polls. And to be honest, their national poll average for Trump vs. Clinton was quite close to the mark. Their average predicted Clinton would win the national vote and she did win the national vote.

    If people have problems, my view is they should be directed at the pollsters who didn’t do enough polling in the battleground states. I think most pollsters looked at the national averages and concluded there wasn’t a great need to survey the states like PA, WI, and MI because a four point national lead always translated into a big EV win.

    As for Sean Trende, I sure do remember how well he was viewed here in 2010 and 2014. In 2010, he wrote a piece suggesting history suggested Republicans could win 100 seats that year. In 2014, he wrote piece showing the direct correlation between a president’s job approval and how well the opposition party would do in the Senate. I think his piece suggested a 42% approval rating translated into a 9 seat gain for Republicans.

  116. Tina says:

  117. Tina says:

    All of his GOPe sources were wrong in 2016, but he continues to quote them

    – Of course if you hadn’t just started posting pro-Trump stuff two weeks ago here, you would have known that my track record in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014 was pretty darn good.

    If everyone who predicted a Clinton win was forced to leave, few would be left.

    And don’t act like you know who MD is or Corey either. You’ve just seen those names mentioned by others here. If you really knew them, you would have spelled Corey correctly. Cory is the commie who occasionally posts here.

  119. gameboy says:

    Trump needs to fire Mueller now an put an end to the nonsense. If the left goes crazy….who cares. They are going crazy already. The witch hunt must end.

  123. Tina says:

    This is 4 d chess.

    Mueller is muddied so no credible investigation can take place.

    All his doing.

    Now sessions can unrecuse himself or charge comedy. If he were to charge comedy, he can, it has nothing to do with muh russian

  124. Tina says:

    The jebot is triggered, but remember, he is not concerned with muh russian

  125. Jonesy says:

    120. I am starting to feel that way to Gameboy. The left is already nuts, and Mueller is Comey’s buddy.

    I hate to see this garbage going on for 3 years with Mueller, but wimps like Paul Ryan and McCain would side with the Democrats if he was fired.

  126. Tina says:

    Its the summer of mayhem kelly. Drama as usual for this unhinged dingbat.

  128. Tina says:

    Ryano already said mueller shoukd stay on. He is a tool, he was one of the original gang of 8 idiots that knew earlier this year thst there were no muh russian ties.

    He is a losah, as is the ky drunk.

  129. Tina says:

    Sessions can be ruthless. Phiq them all. Charge comedy and the mueller investigation dies.

  130. Robbie says:

    Poor, Jonesy.

    He tries to act like he’s been here forever, but his troll skills failed him. He didn’t do the proper research about the positions of regulars and he got caught. The poor guy said I was a big fan of the campaign Mitt Romney and Stuart Stevens ran in 2012. Ha! Even Jason wouldn’t hurl such a false charge at me.

  131. Tina says:

    John ashcroft got manipulated by comedy and mueller.

    Remember, they all threaten to quit over a bush matter,

  132. Tina says:

    Pretty clear thst the libtards are lit that mueller eill be fired.

    Based on comedys testimony, he leaked the memos to get the sp.

    False pretenses.

    – Until the ultimate fraud and huckster, Newt Gingrich, changed his tune 180 degrees on Mueller, I had never heard a bad word uttered about Robert Mueller. And simply because some Trump sycophants like Gingrich, Hannity, and Coulter have started to attack him, I’m not going to change my view.

  142. NYCmike says:

    And??

    Did I say anything about Mueller, positive or negative?

    I am simply showing how you consistently keep parroting the MSM line on whatever the story of the day is, despite their continued errors in their reporting.

  143. NYCmike says:

    “– Until the ultimate fraud and huckster,” = if Robbie does NOT agree with them.

  144. Jonesy says:

    Gingrich led the GOP out of the wilderness in 1994, the first GOP Speaker in 50 years. Even the Reagan landslides could not get a GOP House.

    – First, my opinion is my opinion. It has zero to do with what appears on cable news.

    Second, did you ever consider that the reviews for Mueller are good because he earned them.

    Third, you consistently parrot pro-Trump sources even though they are compromised.

  146. Jonesy says:

    – And then Newt got thrown out on his butt four years later after Republicans failed to make gains during the Clinton impeachment process.

  148. Chicon says:

    Robbie – hiring a lawyer who worked for the Clinton Foundation should be viewed as a problem by anyone with a brain.

  149. Chicon says:

    – Newt is a fraud and a huckster.

    On May 17, he tweeted Mueller was a superb choice for special council.

    On June 12, he tweeted Republicans were delusional if they thought Mueller could be fair.

    That is a fraud being a fraud.

    Newt’s only concern is whether or not he can monetize things. That’s why he’s sucking up to Trump. He wants his new book about Trump to sell.

    Robbie – hiring a lawyer who worked for the Clinton Foundation should be viewed as a problem by anyone with a brain.

    – Ken Starr had Democrats on his staff. Simply because someone is a Democrat doesn’t mean there’s a conflict of interest. Should Mueller have only hired Republicans who have donated to Republicans?

They abhor hack jokes and the mindless points of view from which hack jokes spring. They don’t uncritically buy the MSM line on anything. Their top priority isn’t telling audiences what they want to hear but to come up with an unexpected insight that yields a laugh.”

  153. Chicon says:

    152 – any chance stuff happened between those dates to change his opinion? You’re posting from emotion again, and your logic is suffering.

  154. NYCmike says:

    ” Should Mueller have only hired Republicans who have donated to Republicans?”

    -Negative.

    He should have hire LIBERAL DEMOCRATS that donated almost evenly between Democrats and Republicans (suggestion: 55%-45%, or close to it)

  155. Jonesy says:

    Actions not words Robbie. Newt in 1979, took on the DC Mafia and started a movement that produced a GOP House and Senate in 1994. He fought your GOPe friends like Bob Michel. Tip O’Neills Towel Boy.

    He stood by Trump, who won. I do not care what Newt Tweeted blah blah. Results, Results, Results

  156. Chicon says:

    Robbie – did Starr hire a lawyer who worked for one of Clinton’s main political opponents? If you can’t see that hiring a Clinton Foundation lawyer was a bad play for Mueller, your remaining credibility is at risk.

  157. Jonesy says:

    Is it true that Mueller screwed up the Boston Marathon Bombings?

  158. Tina says:

    Yes, they sat on the russian reports about those two nutsos that did the boston marathon bombing.

  159. Tina says:

    Well, newt did not have the info about comedy leaking memos, with the hope of getting an sp.

  160. Tina says:

    The concerns about mueller being fair are out there.

    Comedys friend for 15 years.

    Comedy admits that he leaked information to trigger an sp.

  161. Jonesy says:

    Mueller is a Bushie, so why would anyone bring up that he was appointed By Never Trumper George Bush?

  162. Tina says:

    Seems to me that sessions can now un recuse himself.

  163. Jonesy says:

    Sessions needs to set up a Grand Jury, Tina. For Lynch and Comey

    – I’m sorry, but I see no conflict simply because the person was involved with the Clinton Foundation. But what I do see is Trump and his allies throwing smoke bombs in hopes of diverting attention. With some, it seems to be working.

  170. NYCmike says:

    – Factual evidence is not the same as conflict of interest. Trump and his allies are suggesting that factual evidence (association with Clinton Foundation) is a conflict of interest. On its own, no it isn’t. Are you now making the case there’s zero evidence someone associated with Democrats can’t make a fair judgment on a Republican?

  173. Tina says:

    Lol, smoke bombs, ny

    Comedy threw a stink bomb in last weeks hearing

  174. Tina says:

    So, what does mueller do now? Step aside?

    Robbie,

    A story about donations to a Democrat are one thing, working for the blatantly corrupt organization called the “Clinton Foundation” is another thing entirely.

    THAT person should NOT have been included by Mueller. Go outside DC and look for some help. I am sure there is plenty of competent, less-politically-involved lawyers out there across the fruited plains…..

    – Jaime Gorelick is the lawyer for Jared and Ivanka. She was a Clinton era justice department official. Under your line of thinking, how can you be sure she’s giving Jared and Ivanka good advice? She is a Democrat and they are associated with a Republican administration. Isn’t that a conflict of interest?

    Honestly, I would’ve expected this kind of defense from you had Ted Cruz become president. But watching you throw yourself on hand grenades for a life long Democrats who made his name in the Republican Party by spreading birtherism is really something.

    Gorelick is a private practice attorny fir hire. She is not prt of the investigation. Big difference.

  186. Chicon says:

    184 – can you really believe what you wrote? Private citizens can hire who they want. Prosecutors need to take all reasonable steps to avoid the appearance of bias among the team. In many respects Hillary is an aggrieved party in this case. Hiring one of her lawyers to prosecute her political opponent is the definition of bias.

    Your position here is possibly the dumbest position you’ve taken here, which is saying something.

  187. Tina says:

    “But watching you throw yourself on hand grenade” = not blindly accepting every story written in the NY Times, WAPO, or CNN

    And if he/she won a Republican primary fair and square, and their opponent in a general election was a real liberal Democrat, you would most likely do the same thing you did on Nov 8, 2016, hold your nose and vote for the Republican you don’t really trust.

  193. Tina says:

    Ok, ny, on mine 184 is my comment. Thanks.

    He does claim that he was spied upon, mike. He is likely pissed about the illegal wiretapping and invasion.

  200. Tina says:

    Trump has cut the most regulations since reagan. I hope he gives us the largest tax cut since reagan and can get us growing at a rapid clip.

  201. Tina says:

    Mcamnesty now claims he did not say that the obumbler was not a better leader, or he cannot remeber saying that.

    Scary given how terrible he looked at the hearing kast week.

    Needs to go, if he is mentalky unable to remember things.

  202. janz says:

    Mueller is not going anywhere. No matter how biased his relationship with Comey looks, or the suspiciously bad opics of the team he’s pickng, it would be far worse optics to fire him. Plus, Rosenstein would probably resign if Trump pushed such a firing.

  203. janz says:

    McCain is discrediting himself by his continuous negative, sarcastic comments aimed at Trump. What does he want to accomplish with this kind of uncooperative behavior?

  204. janz says:

    Tina, I am really dubious that any healthcare or tax reform legislation will get done this year. There are just too many Dem-driven roadblocks & distractions causing anxiety in a fractured, weak GOP Congress to move such an important agenda to conclusion in 2017. Consequently, 2018, IMO, will become a harsh judgment day for Republicans.

  205. Chicon says:

    203 – totally agree, Bitter. Should have built a coalition with moderate Republicans and Trump. Show the blue collars you get them. Isolate the conservatives. Much better play.

  206. Tina says:

    It will be harsh, janz, thanks to ryano and the ky drunk. Twomthat were not prepared to lead.

    Trump just had his first full cabinet meeting, six months into the administration. They could not get the picks confrimed timely.

  207. janz says:

    It has been troubling, Tina, seeing how the Dems footdragged Trump’s cabinet appointments. But, equally puzzling is how slow the trump administration has been to fill out it’s own WH staffing positions, as well as the 100 something vacant judicial positions.

  208. janz says:

    As an aside, I hope Sessions is able to correct and/or clarfy some of Comey’s nunanced testimony that has been looping endlessly through the news.

  209. Tina says:

    Senator warner just falsely referenced the events in france re russians interfering.

    French intelligence no russian interference.
    warner is beyond dumb, jebot like dumb.

  210. janz says:

    It was a solid, earnest, and passionate opening Senate hearing speech by Sessions. He seems like a sincere man. Now it’s the Dems turn to tear him apart.

  211. Tina says:

    Sessions destroying comedy.

  212. Tina says:

    Warner is mad that comedy was not given a meeting re firing.

    Real world there, warner.

  213. Tina says:

    Sessions doing very well.

  214. NYCmike says:

    “Sessions doing very well.”

    -I’ll wait for Robbie’s report to find the middle ground between the 2.

  215. Chicon says:

    Well, he’s really getting the Democrats hot under the collar. So by that measure he’s doing well.

  216. Wes says:

    Warner is the bane of Virginia politics. He spent a ton of money to lose to John Warner in ’96 but set himself up for the governorship once Republicans melted down at the end of the Gilmore Administration. He trounced Gilmore for Senate in 2008 but barely won reelection in 2014 only because Sarvis split the GOP vote while Republicans were oblivious to how close Ed Gillespie was to pulling off an upset.

    I hope Gillespie gets a rematch in 2020 and wins against Virginia’s empty suit Senator.

  217. Tina says:

    Jeff Sessions “Some people will find they wish they hadnt leaked!”

    Why not get your alter ego to play for you, Walt?

  220. I support Donald Trump says:

    Finally, Melania and Barron have moved into the White House.
    I was weird to have the First Lady living in New York.

  221. Cash Cow TM says:

    Reports are that isis ROP whackadoodles are slowing down considerably.

    They are out of bombs, low on ammo, “run over everybody” trucks are low on fuel and their arms are getting tired from stab-mania.

  222. Cash Cow TM says:

    Wes,

    Walt really is sucking at bridge.
    Cash Cow is ready to kick butt, but Walt soldiers on…

    Michael Isikoff @Isikoff
    Sessions confirms multiple leak probes. “This has alreay resulted in investigations. Some people may find they wish they hadn’t leaked.”

  224. Walt says:

    Wes,

    Today, I had an inordinate amount of hands with 9 to 13 points (as opposed to the usual of having hands most hands with fewer than 6 points in previous weeks).

    But opposing pair would be bidding at 3 or 4 level and partner passing before bidding got to me.

    Good thing I was not armed.

  225. Tina says:

    Mcamnesty is again dazed and confused.

    My goodness, get him out of there.

  226. Tina says:

    About McCain- “The Senator’s time has expired”
    So very, very true. #TermLimits#SessionsHearing #JeffSessions

    Lol, sas but true.

  227. Tina says:

    Sessions senate smackdown.

    Drudge.

  228. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “A story about donations to a Democrat are one thing, working for the blatantly corrupt organization called the “Clinton Foundation” is another thing entirely.”

    The Clinton Foundation was a malodorous slush fund, set up by the Clintons to enrich themselves. Anyone who has any association with it should have not role in government. Frankly some people involved with it might belong in jail. This is not just an attorney representing a client, it is participating in a legally questionable, if not corrupt organization.

    “– Jaime Gorelick is the lawyer for Jared and Ivanka. She was a Clinton era justice department official. Under your line of thinking, how can you be sure she’s giving Jared and Ivanka good advice?”

    Although I can support Trump’s policies, do not consider Trump, or Jared, as people who are admirable as businessmen. Their actions in NYC were to engage in the typical Democratic cronyism, and many of their business dealings were not exemplary, to put it mildly. Frankly that association makes my feelings toward the attorney in question even worse.

  229. Tina says:

    Adam Schiff @RepAdamSchiff
    If President fired Bob Mueller, Congress would immediately re-establish independent counsel and appoint Bob Mueller. Don’t waste our time.

    Schiff for brains, so not true.

    Jeff Sessions kicked your ass today.

    That is all.

    Jebots destroyed.

    “Their actions in NYC were to engage in the typical Democratic cronyism, and many of their business dealings were not exemplary, to put it mildly.”

    -Ssshhhhh, don’t tell jason……

  233. NYCmike says:

    border adjustment tax – could anyone explain what this is, and also explain why Republicans are pushing it?

  234. jason says:

    McCain is discrediting himself by his continuous negative, sarcastic comments aimed at Trump.”

    The stupidest thing Trump said during the campaign was discrediting McCain’s war record and saying that McCain was not a war hero because he was captured. McCain was beaten, crippled, and spent years in terrible conditions. He refused to be released early so as not abandon his fellow prisoners. To say ANYTHING negative about his record for political reasons was truly despicable.
    And its the kind of thing that comes around to bite you later

    At time I found this so disgusting I said I would never vote for Trump because of it.

    Maybe McCain is like Trump in that he carries grudges. This is not good for the country and think McCain should look at the bigger picture, but its not hard to understand if he is getting payback.

    Trump should swallow his pride and have a meeting with McCain. He should say look we have our differences but what can we agree on as an agenda.

  235. jason says:

    Their actions in NYC were to engage in the typical Democratic cronyism,”

    Shhh, don’t tell NYC…

    I have been saying here for 2 years that Trump is a crony capitalist.

  236. NYCmike says:

    “Trump should swallow his pride and have a meeting with McCain. He should say look we have our differences but what can we agree on as an agenda.”

    -Not a bad idea….but I thought the problem with McCain now is that he seems to be slurring his speech and is not making sense……in other words, he may be a Democrat now.

  237. NYCmike says:

    “I have been saying here for 2 years that Trump is a crony capitalist.”

    -Really?

    You were constantly calling Trump a “LIBERAL DEMOCRAT”, not a crony capitalist, while I was explaining the reasons for his donations, one of them being the game that is played in NYC.

    As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

  238. Tina says:

    I say he has something wring with him. Not putting him down.

  239. janz says:

    #239 Trump has made a lot of outrageous statements. And, it’s totally understandable for McCain to personally dislike him for these statements. But, once Trump became POTUS, personal grudges should not come into play in one’s professional conduct or their public statements where they openly denigrate the POTUS.

    I agree, though, that the two men should privately meet, talk, and have some kind of truce while they both hold office, and are supposedly doing work for the people. It would be of benefit for Trump to extend an invite to do just that to McCain. IOW, act like a sensible rather than dysfunctional grown-up.

    Maybe McCain is like Trump in that he carries grudges. This is not good for the country and think McCain should look at the bigger picture, but its not hard to understand if he is getting payback.”

    My react was the exact same as Jason. When Trump blamed McCain for getting shot down, decided I could never vote for Trump. And did not do so.

    Saying that, am also in total agreement with Jason on Trump and McCain reconciling.

  241. Trump says:

    Trump should have the demented McCain investigated for his role in fake Russian dossier.

  242. Wes says:

    Northam will be the Dem nominee for VA-Gov. Gillespie narrowly leads the wingnut.
