Scandals aren't based on accusations and lies. Seven Republican investigations and an FBI investigation found nothing  to being charges for.  Mueller is less than a year into his investigations and has served multiple indictments and is now questioning how much trump knew prior to the elections.

 

Regardless of all of the distractions ......... tic toc closer to trump, tic toc closer to trump, tic toc closer to trump ................

Just a reminder......

 

1.  Critical didn't post what YOU claimed he did.....

 

2.  Nixon was impeached AND removed from office AND was pardoned by another Republican.  "Recent history"....and then you want to go back citing Hilary's supposed scandals of 40 years......LMAO!!!  You-just-can't-make-this-crap-up!!!!!

 

3.  Benghazi?  What law was broken?  If wasn't a scandal.....the scandal is the idiocy of the flock.

Aside from Bill Clinton getting caught having a consensual affair, why do you suppose that countless investigations by Republicans have failed to find wrong doing Ed? Are they just that stupid and incompetent, or was it all a giant snipe hunt at taxpayers expense?

easyed598:  The more they investigate Trump the more it points to the Obama  and Hillary misdeeds.

 

 

 

Would you care to let us in on exactly what those misdeeds are? Aside from merely existing.

Only to a Conservative extremist would working towards fighting HIV be a "misdeed".  Quite telling.

 

Jim, when Republicans "peel an onion", they usually find more onion.  You're grasping at straws.  You know, as well as most, that if there were any improprieties, the GOP would have it investigated.  They've wasted millions upon millions of tax-payer dollars investigating the Clintons over the years...  Just pathetic IMO.

The Australian diplomat whose tip in 2016 prompted the Russia-Trump investigation previously arranged one of the largest foreign donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s charitable efforts, documents show. 

 

Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer’s role in securing $25 million in aid from his country to help the Clinton Foundation fight AIDS is chronicled in decade-old government memos archived on the Australian foreign ministry’s website.  

 

Downer and former President Clinton jointly signed a Memorandum of Understanding in February 2006 that spread out the grant money over four years for a project to provide screening and drug treatment to AIDS patients in Asia.

The money was initially allocated to the Clinton Foundation but later was routed through an affiliate of the charity known as the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), officials said. Australia was one of four foreign governments to donate more than $25 million to CHAI, records show.

 

snip

 

In the years that followed, the project won praise for helping thousands of HIV-infected patients in Papua New Guinea, Vietnam, China and Indonesia, but also garnered criticism from auditors about “management weaknesses” and inadequate budget oversight, the memos show.

Democrats accuse the GOP of overreaching, saying Downer’s role in trying to help the Clinton Foundation fight AIDS shouldn’t be used to question his assistance to the FBI.

 

“The effort to attack the FBI and DOJ as a way of defending the President continues,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence panel. “Not content to disparage our British allies and one of their former intelligence officers, the majority now seeks to defame our Australian partners as a way of undermining the Russia probe. It will not succeed, but may do lasting damage to our institutions and allies in the process.”

 

 

Nick Merrill, Hillary Clinton’s spokesman, said any effort to connect the 2006 grant with the current Russia investigation was “laughable.”

 

snip

 

Craig Minassian, a spokesman for the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, said the focus should be on the foundation’s success helping tens of thousands of AIDS patients.

Well of course - he knew enough to report a treasonous scumbag who was involved in activities that threatened everyone in the free world - his political donations notwithstanding.

Eventually, the entire world will come to know numerous details about how the Russians supported trump - the guy whose posterior was already deeply in hock to them...
