    politics is all about appearances

    Politicians don't want to look bad so... where do I begin?

    I mean, this Roger Stone thing is a prime example IMO of how appearances enter into the picture vis a vis what to do.. what to do.. when the nation is watching and there are elections to be considered...

    Stone is supposed to have lied and tampered w/ witnesses. Well, it doesn't look like he really did the latter, and the former..

    well, name me one person in DC who hasn't lied to Congress?

    Adam Schiff comes to mind.. He seems to think he read "Must be willing to lie" in the job description for Senator from CA

    and we all know how the entire last Admin has LIED repeatedly

    "Those emails were about yoga and wedding invitations"
    "If you want to keep your doctor, you can"
    "you will pay $2500 less for health insurance [with Obamacare]"

    and I could go on and on

    but even if you just focus on the FBI and CIA people

    mishandling of classified info... lying to Congress

    something like 20 people (all those who knew about the private server in Chappaqua) could and should be in the same shoes Flynn is in... except that from my best info, Flynn is not guilty

    Another incoherent word salad
    Zelensky: [. . .] We are ready to continue to cooperate for the next steps specifically we are almost ready to buy more Javelins from the United States for defense purposes.

    Trump: I would like you to do us a favor though [. . . ]

    How do you like Devin Nunes for Speaker when Republicans win back the House in 2020?
