[Sen. Lindsey] Graham pushed back Thursday against President Donald Trump's demand that Barack Obama be called to testify about the mysterious "Obamagate" issue that Trump has raised without detail.

Can you say "deflection" ?

I knew you could.


Pres Trump is looking more and more desperate with each passing day.

What is more telling is the ridiculous lengths his supporters have to go to in order to rationalize his words and actions.

It's called a one-trick-pony act for a reason.

Trump insisted that the "crime is very obvious to everybody"" but still did not say what it might be.

This is the pool of vomit some people support as President of the United States.

The House of Representatives needs to investigate the Trumpgate scandal which is actually real and is actually jeopardizing the lives of Americans every single day he remains in office. Make Trump the first President ever to be impeached twice.

"Trump insisted that the "crime is very obvious to everybody"" but still did not say what it might be."

It's quite obviously the jokes Obama made at Trump's expense at the Press Club dinner a few years ago. Trump has never gotten over the humiliation and hates Obama with a passion because of it.

Someone should investigate Phlavangapitosis. It's a word I just made up and I refuse to explain what it means but it's the biggest news story of all time. Trust me.

Trump is such a joke. He knows he's got nothing, Fox knows they've got nothing, all the other bit players know they've got nothing. Yet they continue beating this empty drum.

This Trump cult is creepy as hell.

I'll be withholding my comments until the IG releases his report on whether the Obamagate investigation was adequately predicated.

I would love for the Senate to call Obama for a hearing.

Listening to a President speak coherently and respectably would be an excellent change of pace. Hell, I'd take a few hours of Dubbya talking about Old Texas Sayings at this point.

OK here's the primer on what Trump is peddling as "Obamagate." It's not new. It's just a false accusation that Trump is trying to blow out of proportion (with the help of A.G. Barr) in an effort to incriminate Joe Biden by association.

This is the same tactic Trump used on Hillary Clinton.

He wants Barr to "announce an investigation" (it doesn't have to have merit) like Comey did about Hillary Clinton.

Again, Trump can say "Do you really want a president that's under investigation?" Just like he hammered home with Hillary Clinton two weeks before the election.

Trump is nothing if not predictable. And redundant!

Have I moved back in time and to a different continent? Trump seems to be a Soviet dictator lately and the Senate seems to be the politburo. This wannabe dictator needs to be stopped. Were I Obama, I would take my family to some nation that won't extradite me to the formerly free nation of the USA. Don't let this evil wannabe dictator trump up charges and convict you of some fake crime. Stay away until we can install a new President and incarcerate the piece of filth now inhabiting the WH.

Donald is not smart enough to explain what he "just knows" Obama did to him.

Yep.

It's gonna get pretty nasty.

Hang on folks. It's another Mr Toads Wild Ride!

No mask, no social distancing and there are no lines. Just a wild crazy terrifying ride. Unfortunately you can die on this ride. About 90,000 already have.

But hey. That's the thrill of it. Maybe it won't be you!

But wait! Didn't Obama have an "Article II that says he can do anything he wants"? According to Trump and Barr anything he did while president was legal because he was the president.

Wow, admitting Obama did something wrong, and because of partisanship, you suggest the law breaker leave the country for protection. Nice!

We now know, party before law is with you, it does make sense though.

#17 - there was no admission of guilt at all in what was posted, but the acknowledgment that our Nation has become corrupt and degenerate under Trump/Barr to the point where there is no justice, there is no truth, there is no integrity, there is no trust.

"Wow, admitting Obama did something wrong, and because of partisanship, you suggest the law breaker leave the country for protection."

Quit being such a jerk. That's not what DANNI was suggesting at all. And Obama is no "law breaker."

But we are headed toward a time when a wild-eyed, mentally diseased wannabe dictator can go off the rails and start throwing his imaginary enemies into prisons . . . or worse.

So yes, DANNI is right to a certain extent. Not because Obama is a "law breaker" but because Obama is a target.

And Trump is f'n nuts.

LOL

Perhaps you haven't noticed but Trump is purging his whole administration of "diversity."

Obamagate is such obvious b******* they're not even allowing an article about it on Wikipedia and they have articles on Bigfoot.

Precisely.

And if Comey could be pressured to do it, imagine what Barr will cook up.

If "diversity" is considering that Trump is actually a good man and a genius, I think that this site and the world can survive without it.

CRASSUS will argue that that's different. See? "Different". Diversity. So there you go.

"Diversity is not wanted here, just agreement."

Diversity of ideas? Or alternative facts? We would like you to agree on what the Actual facts are.

Not the "alternate facts".

We are not really interested in what is happening in your fantasy world on parallel Earth. We are only concerned with what is happening in the real world on the actual Earth.

Why is that so difficult for you deplorables?

Because they're deplorable.

I'll be honest. I've given up on the Democrats ability to actually fix anything.

I'm only voting Democrat because I want them to investigate Covfefe.
