I still dont quite understand what Clinton has done that is so wrong....feels like fake news to me.

 

FBI assisted her to fail in her bid to be President, yet concluded for the second time not to charge her with anything. Sure she made a mistake and has admitted to that which was probably bad advice from the State Dept IT Dept. We have Wikileaks/Russians actually stealing confidential documents in their millions and publishing them..but seem to be hero's!!!!  

 

The world is becoming increasingly weird.

It is possible the CIA is cooking up something in the background. If they can install and topple governments they can easily install and xxx??? Trump.

Don't worry about Hillary, she won't be locked up!    Right now she will be looking for a new job (she is a workaholic!).    I'm thinking that a senior role at Microsoft would be a good fit.    Maybe a title such as 'VP Windows 10 Consumer Trust and Reputation.'

joker97: At the end it says it is highly unlikely to happen unless the republicans who control the Senate and the House really wants to do so.

 

Impeaching him doesn't mean they get a Democrat for a president - Pence would take over. And that may be far more palatable to the republicans who hold both the house and the senate, particularly how many of them Trump has attacked.

WikiLeaks are losing credibility fast - which is a shame because we really need organisations like them, but they need to remain impartial. Lots that has been leaked by WikiLeaks has been done so in a manner without the proper context and with commentary that suits Assange's personal narrative. Many of the statements he's released and the assertions made within have been debunked once additional context is added showing a totally different, and far less sinister angle.

 

The timing and the comments were blatant that Assange's goal was to hurt Hillary's campaign. Perhaps he feels Hillary is in part responsible for his personal predicament and was feeling vengeful. In any case, he's doing himself and everyone else no favours. Kim Dotcom was the same - actively campaigning against Hillary as he feels she's in part to blame for his situation, but both for some reason thinking Trump will be their saving grace? He's more likely to accelerate their transfers to gitmo!

He won't be impeached, at least for some time as the GOP control both houses and so unless they have a death wish, they won't allow it.

 

 

Yup... he's appeased the GOP by appointing GOP Establishment people to his Administration. He'll be fine so long as he behaves.

Umm what do you expect when Wikileaks operates from Putin's house ...

People sure are quick to forget the valuable things Wikileaks has done, and the life-long costs of this to Julian Assange. You don't have to like the guy or to agree with him to acknowledge that he has put himself on the line. How many of the rest of us would?

It's hardly a big deal. Clinton in or out of jail makes no difference to most people and it certainly has nothing to do with making America great again.

 

 

I thought part of "Make America Great Again" was that the crooked officials like "Crooked Hillary" would be held to account, and therefore clean up corruption in the govt?

 

(Is it a coincidence that the acronym is MAGA, which is a Nigerian word for victim, especially in the context of a scam?)

Are you suggesting the Trump machine is run by Nigerian scammers? I can go along with that.

I totally agree (same with Snowden) and think we need organisations like Wikileaks to help keep those in power in check - however Assange, for whatever reasons, has turned to using Wikileaks a way to push his own personal agenda. If he has information, release it! By holding stuff back and releasing it when it suits him and with his own skewed commentary delegitimises what is being released and harms the credibility of Wikileaks going forward.

Another lie exposed. I wonder when those who voted for him will start wondering just what they voted for.

That doesn't feel like a lie to me. That feels like something he said that he later determined was not going to do any good. Obama has all but said he would pardon her, so it would achieve nothing. He needs to concentrate on the battles he can win. 


 


I'm not sure how Obama can pardon her if Obama is no longer in office when Trump decides to prosecute. Seems impossible to me.

Agree it's very unlikely Trump would seek a prosecution for anything.

Impeaching him doesn't mean they get a Democrat for a president - Pence would take over. And that may be far more palatable to the republicans who hold both the house and the senate, particularly how many of them Trump has attacked. 

 

 

 

 

Also impeaching does not necessarily mean he gets sacked as President. Impeaching a reprimand. Bill Clinton was impeached and finished out his term.

Only the House can impeach, which basically just means he get tried by the Senate. If the senate upholds, he's out

He wont get impeached for lying as that is his norm...it will be much bigger eg conflict of interests etc.

 

As i said earlier he will get bored quickly with the new job.
