Hell, I'd settle for him just not talking about the 2016 election anymore.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

So I would assume that a copy of the original report is housed somewhere other than Barr's hot little hands?

I don't trust him or Trump to ever release the report unedited (if it is ever released at all).

So I would hope that there is more than one copy of the original out there. Is that a fair assumption?

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

The Mueller Report (the actual one) must have found a great deal, if not everything. What else can explain this week:

- the shortest victory lap ever (despite that weird Time cover).
- suddenly committing-to-launch every Trump-camp policy change without any plans.
- sudden change of Senate rules to push judges through
- RNC and America First super-nervous about news reports, enough to declare they will launch attacks at anyone who does reporting

And even with a great deal of help from cable news falling over themselves to declare the Mueller report complete and conclusive (as few in this thread have already pointed out), we still have minimal poll movement in favor of trump - and majority of those polled find Mueller investigation and report worthy, valuable, and necessary to deliver.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Wait...so is the wall still being built as we speak? And Trump, do you have a replacement plan for Obamacare? You should tell someone. I think you said it would be "two weeks" before we saw the plan and that was like...last year? What's the holdup, Republicans? You've had plenty of time to work on this.

I seriously doubt that Mueller is dumb enough to only have one copy of that report. And I would bet that if the report is not released within a reasonable amount of time, it (or part(s) of it) will start leaking.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

I don't know this for a fact, but I would guess that if a report was "leaked", Mueller would not be able to confirm or deny if it was in fact the true, actual report and not a doctored version of it.

It needs to be released legitimately and then publicly verified.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

LOL Trump just threw Betsy DeVos under the bus. Claimed cutting the Special Olympics was her idea and he disagreed with it. Sure dude.

Speaking to reporters as he left the White House for a rally in Michigan, Trump said he had authorized funding for the event. "I heard about it this morning. I have overridden my people. We're funding the Special Olympics.''
Now he wants a Nobel Peace prize for funding the Special Olympics.

Followed by
“Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said in a statement she was pleased with the president's decision. I am pleased and grateful the President and I see eye to eye on this issue and that he has decided to fund our Special Olympics grant. This is funding I have fought for behind the scenes over the last several years,” DeVos' statement said.
These fuckin' people

I noticed premiums increased so much, and it seemed the healthcare insurance companies were writing their own tickets when it came to premiums. Many ACA exchanges did not qualify for subsidies. Only a single insurer, driving prices higher with no competition. This was a major issue from elderly patients who came to me.

Also, if the plan was viable, why did Obama divert billions of dollars from the US Treasury, going directly to the insurers? That just seemed like a big scam to me, trying to keep the too big to fail companies alive.

And of course, healthcare coverage for all. It does sound great, and I'd be all for it, but we also have people who take advantage of this healthcare system, and are chronically sick, and they use the system to their fraudulent benefit. I even saw it in my niche domain, where people who had used the system before ACA...were actually getting more money from the government, instead of a door visit from the Feds.

Some of you probably don't know but I supported Obama in his first term. I actually wanted to give him a chance and thought that it was a refreshing new atmosphere to the WH, but the ACA just made more work for doctors, to the point where they left the practice, losing experienced people, in with the new who didn't give a flying fuck, adding more regulations, adding more fees, increasing premiums...hell, I thought Republicans were secretly behind the ACA for a while.

Well, I'm all for the report being released, but releasing/leaking unredacted parts would be illegal...and would actually make Mueller into a criminal, which would be ironic.

Dems would spin Mueller as the new American Hero, but I'm not sure that hero could fly.

She spent the last two days defending the defunding of the SO and then had the nerve to say this

From that Twitter opinion,

The four-page Barr Report doesn't mention the third section fo the Mueller Report, the CounterIntelligence Section. Barr is required BY LAW to hand that over to Chairman Schiff. And he's stalling.
Well, why not ask Comey about it? He's the one that started it and Mueller just took over.

Here's the real truth, and Schiff even hints at it (even posted a politically forum-friendly link for y'all):

https://www.motherjones.com/politics...ence-findings/

“We do not yet know the results of the counterintelligence investigation led by Comey and then Mueller,” Schiff said in an opening statement at a hearing on the Kremlin’s use of financial intelligence and other means to further its intelligence efforts. “It is not clear whether, or to what extent, the Mueller report, which is focused on prosecutorial decisions, will even discuss counterintelligence findings.”
If Schiff doesn't know this stuff by now, he needs to be removed from his position and let somebody else take over without tossing wild stupid conspiracies into the public domain.

Assume he did cut funding (going along with your comment), how is he racist for it. I remember PR not wanting Trump's help. From my recollection, they said they'd do it on their own. Even cancelled a major contract with a company that was to repair their electrical grid--this resulted in a 12-week delay in getting power to citizens. That's 3 months. And I think it was even longer.

Then they came back later and whined and screamed that the Trump Admin did nothing for them and killed people. Well, if the repairs were done by that company without such refusal and mash-stomping, I bet at least one PR citizen would have been saved.

The people who were involved in the cancelling of the deal. Ricardo Ramos and Governor Ricardo Rosselló.

None of what you said is true, as usual.* The contract that you are talking about was given to a company that only had 3 employees and didn't know shit about electrical grids.* At no point PR said they didn't want Trumps help.* Like at no single point during any part of the 2 hurricanes that went through the island.* It's the exact opposite.* They needed FEMA's help as soon as possible without any restrictions or bullshit.* That Rosello fumble shit.* Yes,* that did happen and it's all on him.* But when Rosello and every single PR official asked for help as soon as Maria left the island, Trump said this



He then visited the town with the least amount of damage and threw paper towels.* Then didn't want to accept the amount of American Citizens that died during and after the hurricane because of the lack of help.* This blood is on his fucking little hands.* He's fucking responsible for not doing what was necessary to get all the help needed.* Why?* Because he's a fucking racist piece of shit who doesn't think Puertoricans should be American Citizens.* And don't forget that part of the debt in the island is because of his his failed projects.
