Appreciate the posts, doug. Ther is nothing wrong with bringing facts to the table, despite other people's uncouth responses.

Just trying to stay humble on this one. See where the facts come to light. Im no lawyer so I cant really speak to law matters. But ummm.....feel free to add to them and that goes to anyone. Lets try to stick to the topic on this one and make it about the Muller/Russia Investigation.

I try to look for primary docs and things. Sometimes articles from reputable places like the WSJ.

This will go on forever my friend.

This is due to people like Doughishere who have not digested yet the loss of their own and more corrupt candidate: Hillary Clinton.

But, hang on Doughishere, you got 6 1/2 more years to endure!

Cardboard, with due repect, not your "election loss" indigestion thingy again, I am afraid people like you will always remain who you were. For people who don't even know what's been lost by the election of Trump and what damages he has caused to the US & world, I suppose, they are the ones who should love to endure the years with King Trump when he finally reigns after 6 1/2 years.

I am still trying to understand a lot of things going on right now. I appreciate people taking the time to post on topics that are important to them. Do I read every topic? Nope. Only those that are of interest to me. Do I filter what I read? Of course. So much to learn. So please keep the posts and source material coming (from all perspectives) :-)

One question I am trying to answer is why Trump and his staff are coming after allies (Germany, Canada etc) so hard. And at the same time he appears very pro Russia. I still have no idea why this is the case. Germany is not perfect (or Canada). But to look at Russia more favourable than Germany makes no sense to me based on the facts as I understand them. I still remember the meeting Trump had with Russia shortly after he was elected; it was a complete shocker (it looked to me like a love in). Pretty much every encounter he has had with Germany has been the opposite (quite aggressive and confrontational). Like I said, there are things I clearly do not understand so I need to keep reading and learning... my past experience is at some point the picture will start to finally make some sense :-)

"While the indictment does not charge any American with specific criminal conduct, it does describe conduct by Americans that, depending on further factual development, raises potentially serious questions."

Roger Stone tells CNN he does not believe he is the unnamed person in the indictment: “My contact with the campaign in 2016 was Donald Trump. I was not in regular contact with campaign officials.”

What I really want to know, why aren`t you connecting the russian dots in germany.   If germany wanted to stick it to russia they would be reducing their dependence on Russian energy.  Trump is directly calling them on that.  You can`t have this conversation without considering that.  You can literally bring russia to its knees if the EU would just shut that energy tap off.  Not to ignore mueller but lets put this in comparison.  At the end of the day trump got elected because clinton messed up and he grabbed the middle class vote with MAGA.  I dont know the influence of the Russian meddling there but I really dont think that moved the needle.  Meanwhile you have entire EU talking but yet doing nothing to actually hurt Putin.  If you really truly cared about Russia, that would be your focus.

ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS STOP BUYING ENERGY FROM RUSSIA
