That is correct. I am a sole proprietor and use a licensed tax preparer whom I have known for 15 years. So, no I don't begin to think I know it all, it seems you do though.

An excellent article explains in great detail what actually happened in the 2016 election. A must read.

FBI investigation?

FBI have no jurisdiction in the matter as a criminal violation. They've already investigated his background six times. The statute of limitations has passed, so I'm sure the state of Maryland and the local jurisdiction will decline an investigation as well. A simple accusation without evidence is not probable cause to open an investigation.


They were juveniles at the time if Ford is telling the truth. She didn't allege a felony assault in her letter. She didn't lose her clothes nor was she penetrated. It's not clear exactly what she is alleging since we haven't seen the letter or heard it from her mouth. She is only alleging from what I've read that she was groped on the outside of her clothes and Kavanaugh has denied it ever happened. Felony sexual assault has a distinct definition under Maryland law. Why don't you look it up

Who's not interested in revisiting Roe v. Wade?

Sen. Susan Collins said that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh assured her during their meeting he believes the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling legalizing abortion is “settled law."

Check Kavanaugh's new poll numbers. In any state, when you take a women (girl) into a bedroom, lock the door and throw her on the bed with your hand covering her mouth to stop her screams, you are committing an attempted sexual assault. That's a crime. A good prosecutor could probably push kidnapping.

No one is asking for a criminal investigation. Only a re-opening of the recent investigation to include this NEW allegation. A very reasonable request especially after reading his yearbook statements. Kinda sounds like there was a little all male club that specialized in taking what they wanted from young girls.

Michael "creepy porn lawyer" Avenatti? the creepy porn lawyer who is representing porn star Stormy Daniels?

Seems to win a lot? "creepy porn lawyer" being sued by Jason Frank, a former partner at Egan Avenatti ... Michael's law firm, because he claims Avenatti stiffed him out of a couple mil.

Seems to win a lot? A federal bankruptcy judge issued a restraining order to block the firm of Michael Avenatti, "creepy porn lawyer" for porn star Stormy Daniels, from spending any fees it collects while it owes more than $10 million in unpaid debts and back taxes.

Does anyone remember when "Dr" Ford Attorney Debra Katz defended Al Franken with the following:

“He did not do this as a member of the U.S. Senate. He did this in his capacity of someone who was still functioning as an entertainer.”

Will she say that Kavanaugh was functioning as a child instead of a federal judge when he groped Ford, if he in fact did so? Just askin'.

Most people want to leave it alone. The far right wants to overturn it.

And past legal decisions by him show a very narrow interpretation of Roe v. Wade that are sufficient grounds to question his true intentions.

Katz was also critical of the Paula Jones case:

“Clearly a one-time incident that took place in 10 to 12 minutes, she was not forced to have sex, she left on her own volition, the courts increasingly are finding that that is not enough to create a sexually hostile work environment claim,” Katz said in April 1998, according to a transcript of CBS Evening News.

No.

He needs to just continue being Stormy's lawyer. He's become too controversial to be anything else.

Since the far right extremists here are constantly telling us stories, I figured I'd throw one of my own in.
I agree the right just needs to pull the nomination and start over. Maybe we can hold them up until we have a democratic President. They are shaking in their boots now over that possibility.

As far as the government is concerned there are laws and a constitution that must be followed. When that is violated then it becomes a big issue for me. Trumps taxes not so much.

The problem is that there is growing evidence that suggests the DOJ and FBI was involved in an illegal spy and leak campaign against a Presidential candidate named Donald Trump. Already more than a dozen FBI and DOJ high ranking officials have either been fired or removed from the case. And none of that bothers you. I remember when Democrats were against the violation of Americans civil liberties. Not any more!

You want to deconstruct the executive branch of government and do what with it? You want to stack the Supreme Court with ultra right wing judges, but to what end? What exactly is it you hope to accomplish?

What's your vision of America, post-Trump?
Once again, Strong borders ie a border wall, Term limits, Fair trade, Jobs, Lower taxes, Supreme Court Justices that strictly adhere to the constitution, equal justice under the law, transparency within our government, strong military and a leader who will do what he says unlike your boy Obama and not back down. I believe we can get there but we must first weed out the RINO's in the house and senate and replace them with constitutionalist conservative Republicans. What we have now is a bunch of old establishment Rebulicrats who are working against the will of the people they represent.

Now let me ask you a question, you stated a ways back in the threads that you were at one point considering voting for Trump but then listed all the reasons why you didn't. My question is what was it about Trump that you did like?

And it has nothing to do with whether or not a crime was committed. There's no interest in prosecution. The issue now is whether or not Brett Kavanaugh has the moral standing to become a Supreme Court Justice who will be called upon to weigh in on moral issues.

I realize you have no use for moral principles, but some people do. They have a voice in this process as well.
She will have her chance to testify but you must admit this whole process has been shady at best. And speaking of moral principals you support a party that staunchly defended Bill Clinton against rape and sexual assault allegations from many women not just one and you most likely voted for a women who dragged their reputations through the mud ie Hillary Clinton. Hardly moral high ground!

If Trump is indicted for a crime under a fully legal and justified investigation where no ones rights were violated then I have no issues. My only issues would be why wasn't there equal justice under the law related to the Clinton investigation. My door has a window and right now all I see is corruption and violations of Americans civil liberties by high ranking officials within the DOJ and the FBI. Maybe you best keep an eye on your own door zz. Besides what evidence do you have that Trump has been compromised by the Russians? .Did you get that info from a Russian bot?

Default The application will be out soon.

Trump should have told the DNI to do this forthwith and if not completed in 5 working days to compose his letter of resignation. He should have done the same with Wray, Rosenstein, and Sessions.

The biggest tub of BS ever. If that were the case the Democrats would be leading the charge to declassify.

Criminal activity at the highest levels of the FBI/DOJ will be revealed, and Democrats like Adam Schiff will be exposed as pathetic liars. High level people in the FBI/DOJ will be proven to have perpetrated a fraud on the FISC and committing in the process and numerous violations of statutes like 18 USC 1001.

The release of emails and texts will reveal criminal activity as well. For example, just the claim that texts and emails have to be examined for classified information is an admission to serious violations of federal law, because it is illegal to put any classified information on a cell phone or in an email in an unsecured network. A single count carries a 10 year prison sentence, 18 USC 793 f.

The only reason they are withholding these documents is to conceal their own criminal culpability in taking part in a conspiracy to steal an election, undermine and spy on the Republican campaign, invent a premise with which to frame Donald Trump, and if elected, sabotage his presidency, and perpetuate an impeachment in the House. Better pay attention. A grand Jury has already been impaneled to investigate these issues and has been for four months.
