    Exactly....they tried to get dirt on Trump through Manafort. I don't understand why they're arguing this?

    Because the whole collusion with the Russians gambit is a big Lie that's supposed to cover up Obama's illegal spying on the Trump campaign. So they keep pushing that Lie and pretending Obama wasn't spying. See that? wire tapping Manafort wasn't spying on Trump it was investigating non-existant collusion with the Russians to throw the election.

    The whole problem with this Lie is the idea that there was anything to investigate in the first place... they keep trying to find that. Well, jesus-stupid-christopher, the whole point is, they never had it to begin with, so it was never a legal investigation, it was always illegally spying on the Trump campaign, exactly the same as what Nixon's gang did.

    The semantics is twisting wiretapping of Manafort into wiretapping of Trump. They got a a FISA warrant to tap Manafort,not Trump.

    The question is whether or not there are too many corrupt people in the ointment to allow truth to fly free and the bad people (Obamaites) to go to prison where they belong.

    None of this will land on Trump.

    It's all Obama - the most corrupt administration in our lifetime including Nixon's.

    I said this before Obama took office for his first term. Obama plays hardball, he is a purely political animal, he is unhindered by any patriotic impulses. South side of Chicago. Hillary was northwest suburbs. very different political positions, but both are hardball.

    Manafort--who supposedly no longer had anything to do with the campaign--was wiretapped ... not by Obama but by the FBI. If a mobster who frequented Trump's casino was under FBI surveillance, would that vindicate Trump's claim too?

    Clinton's book is a #1 bestseller.

    Whether the Republicans have their act together politically remains to be seen ... from a policy perspective, their plan is a disaster.

    I respectfully disagree with your characterization of Trump at the UN.

    How is your friend doing now?

    One of my best friends lives in Houston. She was fine throughout the storm, and aftermath. Her area never lost power, nor had any flooding. She was very lucky.

    I am extremely fortunate in that I only lost power for less than two days. Sadly, there are many others who still don't have it restored.

    The amount of damage is astounding. The clean-up everywhere continues.

    Thankfully, the utility companies are working overtime to do everything they can to get people back up and running. (I keep a cooler with cold water in my car, and give it to those I see working).

    I had very minimal damage. Having lived in south FL for so long, I do as much prep work as possible at the beginning of hurricane season, in the eventuality that a storm will hit. This year that preparation has paid off.

    I cannot even begin to imagine what the people in Puerto Rico, and throughout the Caribbean, are experiencing,

    No, the second wiretap was after the Trump campaign let him go.

    Clapper's claims don't contradict each other. When Manafort was wiretapped he was not part of Trump's campaign.

    So glad they're okay! That is so scary!

    Hopefully we won't get any more hurricanes this year.

    The water was over the top of my seawall, and a few feet up the driveway, but my home is built higher, so it didn't get inside (it would need to rise a good 10'-12' to come near the house). As soon as the storm passed, and the tide went out, the water went down.

    Have a nice night!
