    So weird how all of these paranoid conspiracy theory racists keep popping up in the administration Almost like it starts with the guy at the top being a paranoid conspiracy theory racist

    The best part is that our military procurement is run so poorly that despite spending absurd amounts of money a lot of equipment is in poor shape. Decades of forever war don't help for readiness, either. But yeah we could easily afford college and healthcare for everyone if we wanted.

    This applies even if they don't have a physical presence. 8-1 ruling.

    I still want to know who the "objective" people referred to earlier were. Also who changed the thread title a few weeks ago and why

    Obama's handling of the child migrant influx in 2013 and 2014 was pretty bad and also included large "detention centers" and cages for children. He was also criticized at the time:

    They have no plan. This is about inflicting pain and suffering as the ends itself, not a means to an end. Many of these families are going to be permanently separated. also,

    1.) I was referring to this: "The reason the Clinton Investigation was such a story was because the FBI ignored new evidence relating to it and the information got to objective parties who then forced Comey to release his letter." The IG report is clearly not what you were referring to here. This claim refers to actions in 2016. Who are the "objective parties" you reference that got the information that forced Comey to issue his letter? 2.) They decided not to prioritize it because they had other ongoing investigations. You keep making allegations about political motivations and bias, but the IG report explicitly rejects those claims. Comey did not actually ever *have* to write that letter. He could have decided not to reopen, or he could have done so and kept it quiet, like he did with the ongoing Russia investigation. You're assuming your conclusions a bit here. 3.) Comey did do something wrong. He never should have released that letter. He was a bad director. I'm not sure how what I said was really fear-mongering, though it is of course at least somewhat speculation since we're using Comey's emails, notes etc. to determine his mindset. 4.) It's directly related to claims of political bias within the FBI, and it's also substantiated at least by Nunes (Nunes: FBI Agents Leaked Clinton Info to Me), who just recently claimed he was informed in September 2016, and Guiliani revealed that the FBI questioned him about his tease of Comey's letter coming a couple of days ahead of it. If we're discussing the IG investigation into the Clinton Email investigation, it's pretty relevant. What you've not substantiated is that, beyond some text messages which were also critical of a variety of other people and praised some others like Kasich, that there really was or is some big anti-Trump conspiracy that tainted the FBI's investigation into Clinton's emails or the ongoing Russia investigation. The IG report rejects the claims on the Clinton investigation and doesn't address the Russia investigation. do you believe the claims by some that there's a second, *real* IG report that's much more damning?

    the thing Trump is signing won't actually fix anything and is in fact in defiance of court orders and a consent decree

    Hundreds if not thousands will be permanently separated. They had and have no plan or procedure for reunification. Just look at Kelly's dismissive comments last month--"the children will go to foster care or wherever" These families are being permanently destroyed and these children permanently psychologically traumatized.

    The information was leaked to Devin Nunes and Rudy Guilliani. Are you calling these guys "objective parties"? It should also be pointed out that the "new evidence" ended up amounting to...nothing. There wasn't actually anything new (or at least nothing really substantive, can't remember if they did find a handful of new but unimportant emails) in the information recovered from Weiner's laptop. If anything, if the FBI had reviewed that information when they first got it in late September 2016, that would have been much better for Clinton as Comey wouldn't have released his letter (which was immediately leaked by Congressional Republicans) so close the election itself. That letter getting released in early October means it's quickly in and out of the news cycle, pushed about by Access Hollywood or the debates or whatever else came up throughout October. The report helped to illustrate how well the conservative working of the refs works, too. Comey was so, so afraid of GOP backlash or criticism that he felt he had to release the letter to Congress (again, immediately leaked by GOP for political gains). He didn't ever seem to consider the fairness to the other side of acting like that or in keeping the ongoing Russia investigation tightly under wraps. The IG report also didn't look into why FBI agents were leaking anti-Clinton information outside of the FBI, likely to Trump campaign members and supporters (like Nunes and Guilliani). Isn't that blatant corruption?
