Senator Mitt Romney has slammed Donald Trump for saying that he would accept dirt on a political opponent from a foreign government, saying the president’s remarks are “simply unthinkable.” Mr Romney, who was the 2012 Republican nominee for president before winning his Senate seat last year, said during an impromptu interview with reporters that he would contact the FBI immediately if a foreign government approached him in that way.

The president is the executive branch. There is only one boss and that is the president. All other employees are inferior to the president. If The Trump comes across some foreign information, he can decide for himself if he wishes to get the FBI involved. He is not obligated to provide the FBI with anything. The FBI works for the president, not the other way around. Speaking to George Steph was a brilliant move by Trump. When the indictments are handed down, the JunkMedia will conveniently steer clear of Comey's FBI taking forged information from a foreign agent.

President Trump was asked a hypothetical question by a known Democrat political operative connected to the Clintons, and gave in his hypothetical imprecise answer by way of his Queens vernacular, that is now being misrepresented by the Democrat political operative, other liberal media operatives, and much of the Democrat Congress.

I am scratching my head on this one. Didn't we just spend 30 million dollars looking into political dirt on Pres. Trump just because his political opponent Hillary Clinton paid to have political dirt spread on him! She not only accepted it; she paid for it. Why hasn't Mitt et al slammed her for what she did! Huh? Huh?

Should I suppose he also denigrates Hillary for the Russian situation? Or is he a hypocrite and a liar? Oh, yes... politician... Have you noticed, people who seek public office are remarkably similar in psychological profile to serial killers? They tend to lack empathy/sympathy for their prey (voters), they are good at manipulating people, and love to be in control. They may be sadistic with certain 'trigger' types. Why do we elect these degenerates, again?

Mitt Romney is a fatuous hypocrite. His campaign for the Republican Party nomination in 2012 was the dirtiest I've ever seen. He laughed openly with liberal reporters about using opposition research to destroy GOP rivals he couldn't defeat on principle. The accusations against Newt Gingrich, Mike Huckabee, and Rick Santorum were pervasive and dishonest. One commentator on this site referred to it as "the Great Romney Tμrd-hurling Machine." It was a primary campaign devoid of principle and purpose. Then his minions went after Santorum's wife over abortion. Karen Santorum almost lost her own life trying to save their baby in a pregnancy that was killing her. Doctors finally had to refuse her pleas because their ethics wouldn't allow them to kill one patient to save another. Attacking a man and his wife over an issue so personal to them speaks to a lack of character in Romney that is truly appalling. Removing Mitt Romney from public life should be considered an act of basic political hygiene.

If President Trump could not hypothetically “listen” to what world leaders in the future want to tell him about alleged leftist and liberal Democrat corrupt activities, how would Trump be able to inform the FBI about those conversations, so that legitimate and non-political FBI criminal investigations could be commenced and the perpetrators prosecuted if lawfully appropriate? Common sense will tell you that hiding the allegations of high level Democrat corruption from the FBI would not be personally or politically beneficial to Trump.

From the craphead who got his butt kicked by puny obama who was losing the night of the election. Remember when obama was almost in tears at some rally no one attended on election night? They had to manufacture crowds at his events, and he knew he was going to lose, then poof! a win for the mulatto light-bringer. And, of course, baby Romney said nothing at all about the widespread cheating. He shut his mouth and went home dutifully, just like John McCain. Traitor. We haven't forgotten, you worthless, spineless loser. You need and we need you to shut up now. Pretend we're democrats asking you to shut up.

A federal grand jury's decision comes one day after the reality television stars preemptively denied the charges, claiming they were being framed. "Todd and Julie Chrisley are charged not only with defrauding a number of banks by fraudulently obtaining millions of dollars in loans, but also with allegedly cheating taxpayers by actively evading paying federal taxes on the money they earned," said U.S. Attorney Byung J.

Let’s apply Occam’s razor to Jeffrey Epstein’s untimely death. Which of these scenarios makes more sense: that a powerful billionaire who knew all about a global elite sex ring was murdered in jail by the same unaccountable forces that allowed him to evade justice for years, or that he suddenly killed himself while on suicide watch? Oh, he wasn’t on suicide watch? Well, that’s normal. It’s all very simple: Epstein must have killed himself after, very sensibly, being left alone to his own devices, despite being the most high-profile defendant in the country. What are you, a conspiracy theorist?

Elijah Cummings sits on a powerful committee in Congress. He is considering every way he can to destroy the president and his family. The president told him in a tweet to get his district under control, and all hell broke loose because Cummings is a black man and Trump is white. Donald Trump has been called a racist for telling a black congressman to pay attention to his own district. Quickly, all of Trump’s supporters have been called racists and are defined by the media and opinion-makers as somewhat less than human.

In 1972, Pope Paul VI famously wrote that the “smoke of Satan” entered the Church, wafting through the very windows he and his liberal confreres had thrown open to the world. It was an admission that the Church around the time of Vatican II had succumbed to the secularism and hedonism of post-1960s Western culture. The Church had once led the West in moral standards. Now she slavishly followed the West’s lowest ones, becoming in the process as sick and dysfunctional as its shabbiest pagan institutions. All the scandals that defined a crumbling secular society hit the Church, culminating in a pederasty scandal of epic proportions.
