We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The FBI knew the Russia thing was a Clinton opposition hoax. Sen Hawley notes that the true 2016 collusion was between the Clinton campaign and the FBI. Russians don't scare me, but the FBI does. Russia is a pathetic place.
Hillary used the media and the DNC to get Bernie out of a Democrat primary. Then she used the media and FBI/CIA/DOJ to try to get Trump out of the general election. Hillary is the colluder, briber, and treason candidate at large.
We've been reading about all this since the Nunes report, but you have to realize that many, many Americans never heard a word about it until Horowitz testified. Even the publication of his report had little effect, as few read it and their favored news outlets simply lied about it.
Now when someone mentions the FBI I think of the movie COn Air when one of the supposed prisoners announces he's actually DEA, and does everyone know what that means, and Dave Chapelle's character answers "Yeah, it means you're the dirtiest ni**er on this plane."
I expect the Russians to do dirt, the FBI, not so much. I don't know what they could possibly do to repair their image.
