    When it comes to congressional oversight you don't need proof. You need a president acting in ways that indicate he is abusing his power. The three branches of government serve to keep each other in check. They have a large number of reasons to suspect he is out of line, and one of the functions of congress is to make sure he is not out of line. And if he is, it is their responsibility to take him out of office.

    As I've heard it said, it's not the billionaire who became a politician that I'm concerned about; it's the politicians who became millionaires while in office that we should be taking a closer look at!

    I have noticed, many times, that in Mountain Man’s world, nothing matters if it's not literally the worst thing happening.

    I assume this is your way of saying, "I had no idea Mueller was compromised! "

    Do you know if there has been a significant increase in diplomats using the hotel since Trump became POTUS or has it remained the same?

    Pffft... you mean evidence suggesting probable cause to start an investigation? Please, this would be so much easier for everyone if we just assumed that Trump most be guilty of something, and we just to find out what!
