Here's the solution. People should stop using social media and smart phones. Their addiction to these devices and stimuli only results in bad things happening to them.

I for once fully agree with that. I have no smart phone and belong only to RR. No Facebook, Twitter, etc.

It was hard for my employer years ago to get me on board with a Blackberry. I had no choice.

From John Brennon yesterday. One of if not the best statements on Trump I have ever heard. Short, sweet and to the point.

When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America...America will triumph over you.

Donald Trump hires Joseph E. DiGenova, a DC attorny known for spreading a conspiricy theory that the FBI intentionally framed Trump. He spread his theory on Fox News of course.

IMO, the FBI has been investigating Trump for 30 years with good reason. They have always known what a scumbag he was and still is. When it looked like he could win, they acted with pure patriotism realizing what could happen to our institutions, and they were correct.

If there is any truth to DiGenova's theory (which I don't beleive there is) I would applaud the FBI for trying to save our democracy. There are some things the American people just don't need to know about.

The big question now is what is Trump afraid of? He sure is hiring some big hitters. Between the Russia Probe and the porn star, Trump is probably spending $38,000 a day plus. These guys charge $1600 an hour. And that's just the three lawyers on the Russia probe. What ever he's hiding, it sure must be a monster.

If your neighbor plows down your fence and then threatens to sue you, calls the DA and wants criminal charges filed simply because your fence was in HIS way, wouldn't you retain an attorney if you have the money?

Maybe Trump is hedging his bets.

I can't give him that benefit of a doubt. The guy is dirty. He's always been dirty. He always will be dirty.

I'll say this. Yes he can hire 100 lawyers if he has the means. Their defense is to trash and discredit the FBI and DOJ. That bothers me more than anything and his hard core supporters are believing every word of it. It's devastating our rule of law society.

One day Trump is going to need the FBI !! Paybacks are a MF. If Mueller survives, Trump and family will be toast.

The State of NY just opened a new investigation into Kushner for lying on certain real estate disclosures to facilitate the sale of three buildings which led to a quick multi-million dollar profit.

Their dirty, all dirty.

Defamation law suite will proceed:

President Trump must face a defamation suit filed by former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos — as a Manhattan Supreme Court judge denied him immunity through his job as the nation’s commander-in-chief.

Karen McDugal (ex-playmate) has filed a suite to get out of her NDA agreement. How many more will there be?

That's 2 in one day. Sorry Donald ! Are the Trump supporters starting to see what's going on here? Your President is a philanderer and a sexual abuser. Melania and the US suffer under this MORON. It is time to put a stop to this crap.

That's why we have a special counsel. I am quite sure using stolen data from Facebook to cheat in an election will have some sort of campaign violation along with the possibility of the same with the porn star and playboy playmate payoffs.

You people know damn well you elected a criminal. Why do keep defending a guy who is as deplorable as a pile of dog mess? Think about this. He had unprotected sex with a sickening porn star and never cared if he brought aids back to his beautiful wife. Sick and sexually deranged dude.

If Trump is so innocent, why did John Dowd quit (just today)? Trump is such an ignoramus, his attorneys can't control him. In the last two weeks, he tried to hire two very prominent DC attorneys and both declined. The only one he could get spreads conspiracy theories on right wing media. A total looser.

Keep defending him. I'll have 4 words for you folks when this all comes to light. "I told you so"

You guys just aren't paying attention. You might try something other that Fox News and other conspiracy spreading Alt Right Media. My feelings are not hurt. I am angry at the Republicans for aiding an abetting this Moron.

I miss spoke in my last post. There have been 4 attorneys that recently declined to join the legal team.

Trump is on a island all by his pitiful self. He thinks he knows everything. He'll find out just how much he doesn't know.

As he starts a trade war with China, don't forget it's the Trump voters in mid-America that will be hurt the most. We all will see higher prices on nearly everything we purchase. Great job Donald !!

"If the glove don't fit, you can't convict". No matter WHAT you think you have, nothing is certain until the action is completed. Good luck with that.

Cambridge Analytica didn't steal any data from Facebook. They took advantage of a loophole in Facebook's processes and user agreements to obtain data that Facebook members had, sometimes unwittingly, provided to Facebook. If you've been paying attention to the news reports, and taking the time to dig into what the tech journals are saying about this, Facebook has a clear problem in the way they allow 3rd parties to access user data. While Cambridge Analytica may have gone a bit too far with what they did, Facebook is also culpable.

What Cambridge Analytica did with that data is no different from a campaign making targeted mailings or buying targeted TV or radio spots. Campaigns have been data mining voter records and targeting blocks of voters for years. The problem with social media is that there's very little transparency or disclosure. If the NRA runs an ad on TV supporting a candidate, the source of the funding for that ad is disclosed in the ad. If the NRA uses Facebook to send ads supporting a candidate to targeted groups of people who might be interested in guns, the source isn't disclosed. Even Mark Zuckerberg is now admitting that maybe social media is due for some regulation.

The ongoing investigations must be allowed to play out. If Mueller has enough evidence to indict Trump, I'm sure he will. But, once that indictment is made, it will still be up to a court of law to hand down a conviction. Our personal feelings about Trump and whether or not we think his actions are defensible doesn't matter nearly as much as his right to due process and a fair trial. You, on the other hand, are like the guy in the old western movies who stands up in the courtroom yelling "hang the sumb!tch".

You are exactly correct. He is a POS and deserves to be hung. One way or another, he will pay for a lifetime of bullying, lying and cheating people. Even if he has to wait to meet his maker. Some of us spend the better part of our lives helping and consoling people. Trump is the exact opposite. He is vengeful and plain mean. Not to mention a MORON.

Paybacks are a MF. !!

To counter your statement about me, how different is it when his new lawyer goes on Fox and trashes the FBI and DOJ with conspiracy theorys that are complete lies? He is supposed to be a professional but acts just like Trump. I am stating my opinion as is he.

You should be very careful about how you state threats against the President. The Secret Service does not take kindly to ANY threats.

I'm always amazed how you seem to know more about what happens on Fox News than the people you accuse of using it as their only source of information. Must be opposition research. Just sayin'.
