Here is the full extent of the "pressure" Lynch exerted on Comey...

Quote
“Former Director Comey requested a meeting in September of 2015 in which he asked the AG and other Department officials for guidance on how to discuss the investigation at his upcoming testimony before Congress,” said the former official, who provided an emailed statement on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. “The primary question before the group was not how to refer to the investigation, but whether to confirm its existence at all . . . The AG told Director Comey that she had used the term ‘matter’ in response to press inquiries, in order to ensure that she neither confirmed nor denied the investigation, in accordance with longstanding Justice Department and FBI policy. She suggested that she and the director should be consistent in their language, and at the end of the meeting, she asked if everyone was comfortable with using the term ‘matter.’ No one, including the Director, contested that view.”

The pressure was to say "matter" instead of "investigation".  That's it. 

Not pressure to end the investigation.  Not pressure to clear Hillary.  Just to call it a "matter" instead of an "investigation".

And Comey never called it pressure in his testimony. That's something Rush Limbaugh made up.

AP: Trump Has Been Yelling At The TV, Frustrated With Focus On Russia Probes

That has got to be fake news.  How could he know there's a Russia probe when FOX doesn't cover it?

Why hasn't a Trumpbot taken its hard-won and rightful place in the Disney Hall of Presidents?

Well, it's a bit of a "Closed for 'remodeling', until further notice" kind of thing...

Here’s the Secret Backstage Trump Drama at Walt Disney World’s Hall of Presidents

I think it would be fitting to include him, sitting in the back somewhere, thumbing away on Twitter during the whole presentation.

If you hope to convince a troll to change his way of thinking, you are overly optimistic. It ain't gonna happen.

Only one comment to make:

The Hall of Presidents was built originally for the 1963-1964 World's Fair in New York.  I saw it there.  After the Fair, it was taken down and put in Disneyland.  So it's actually over 50 years old.  If I remember correctly, the "host" was Abraham Lincoln then.

The Obamabot looks pretty awful. 

Trump might be wise to pass on the honor entirely.   :/

Maybe they can have Trump recite his "I'm going to build a wall" speech.

Why does Obama look like a dark skinned George W. Bush? :-P

Maybe they should put Trump between Franklin Pierce and Millard Fillmore? :-P :-P

Good grief.  Is there anything Morgan Freeman won't narrate?

Data Firm Hired By RNC Accidentally Leaked Millions Of Voters’ Personal Info

How many people?  198 Million.

Quote
The data leak contains a wealth of personal information on roughly 61 percent of the US population. Along with home addresses, birthdates, and phone numbers, the records include advanced sentiment analyses used by political groups to predict where individual voters fall on hot-button issues such as gun ownership, stem cell research, and the right to abortion, as well as suspected religious affiliation and ethnicity.


Not even password-protected.


This is how you launder your collusion with foreign powers.  You "accidentally" leave useful information, stuff that might help them sway voters with their internet bots and news sites, out where anyone might find it.

No need to physically deliver a hard drive or allow any suspicious connections with a Russian server. Just get the URL to them somehow, perhaps at one of those "encounters" Jeff Sessions had.

25% of liberals are on medication for their mental illness, but what's really disturbing is that means that 75% are running around without their meds. 😄

Hahahahaha .  Robbing 23 million of their health insurance sure is funny!  Oh, and that mandated coverage for mental health sure is a drain!

This from a guy with an engineering degree who doesn't know how to figure percentages.

Are there meds that raise your intelligence, to normal or near normal levels? If so, would the people who need them be smart enough to know it?

Seriously, if an investigation is searching for something that doesn't exist, then it's obvious that the investigation is not going to come to an end in the foreseeable future. Maybe at some point Mueller will determine . . . .No, Mueller is enjoying his new full time position. LOL!
