    somehow, i believe the American public would become outraged - even many of the tRump loyalists - to learn that tRump had given putin veto power over his cabinet selection
    I highly doubt Trump had any plans for Romney to be Secretary of State. Not when Romney dissed Trump big time joining G.H.W and Jeb Bush as anti-Trumpers. The fact Trump succeeded getting Romney to an interview at Trump Towers made it look like Romney was begging on his knees for forgiveness. There's no way Trump was considering Romney, not with their feud going on hot and heavy.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    On the other hand, you also have to understand the limitations of the dossier. Steele was dealing with raw data.. the dossier can provide pointers, but has to be independently verified.

    The dossier, which was a small part of the evidence considered by the FISA court that issued then later renewed warrants for surveillance on Carter Page, which was part of the grander investigation into Russian interference, potential collusion, and anything else Meuller might turn up?







    "Lawdy" indeed.

    I don't automatically believe what I read. I judge it in context of what it is, who said it, the political environment, like things done by various persons biased in various ways (as far as I can surmise), yadda yadda. But I have had more than enough of seeing people announce that because it's an anonymous source, or worded vaguely ("has been reported"), whatever is said must be rejected with mockery.
    I agree with most of that, however the media is now laying in the bed they made. Increased skepticism is a natural reaction as the media has shown an increasing tendacy over time to embellish or outright fabricate a story.

    Just like if you catch me lying to you once, that's one thing, but if I repeatedly do it you would only naturally be correct to be untrusting of even the most mundane things I would say.

    Or....
    Trump was playing Romney, all the back-patting and maybe a "No hard feelings" thrown in for seasoning with the SOS offer...and then dumped him as a possible candidate as a way to humilate him.

    Besides Steele's word, do you have proof of that?

    Actually, I voted for Johnson, not Trump. Not that any kind of vote on my part could have shifted the election in a million years; I'm a Georgian, so nothing short of a kid-diddling candidate like Roy Moore will ever turn my state blue.

    Regardless, the alleged piss tape bit is simply ridiculous. With everything else we've dug up about Trump's sex life so far, we'd surely have some kind of evidence that he has a piss fetish.

    To be fair, there likely wouldn't have been an investigation without the dossier. It hasn't been entirely verified, and there's a part or two that I think are completely false, but it is largely to thank for the FBI investigation even happening.

    My only point was that Steele so far has been on the mark. Judging by Trumps refusal to enact any additional measures on a country who interfered in our election process, its not out of the question to suspect Trump has been compromised by the Russians. I will leave it to Mueller and his final analysis.

    But hey, Donny says Vlad looked him in the eye and said Russia had zero interference. Trump is beholden to Vlad, or Trump is a very naive person to believe Putin. Either way, it does not look good.
