    I think all candidates would accept dirt on any and all of their opponents. Including creepy Joe.
    Is it not the FBI's mandated function to investigate any suspected breach of federal law?

    There was zero evidence of a breach of federal law.

    The suspicion was there and the search was to find the evidence (if any), surely :-)

    The suspicion was manufactured and has never held up to any scrutiny what so ever.

    Putin is actually quite predictable.
    This bothers me, because I thought you were at least somewhat open minded and not just blinded by the rhetoric.
    Not sure why it bothers you.
    Putin is predictable.
    Trump, not so much.
    Trust is based, at least in part, on predictability.

    What do you think imposing term limits would accomplish and, should only federal officeholders be subject to them? Also, which "perks" do you think should be abolished?

    Most of these politicians come up through the system from state-elected positions, and some literally buy their way into office because they can afford to. What're your thoughts on those issues?

    As much as I loathe Trump's visions, the fact is his civil rights were definitely violated, and those responsible should be held accountable. That said, OTOH, Trump is reaping from Democrats what he sowed with his Birther Bullsh!t.

    This is what American politics has become.

    There was none, the suspected breach was fabricated.

    No, I honestly do not wish for success from Trump's presidency. That would mean a continuation of unlimited arms sales to Saudia Arabia, unchecked and unabashed support for Israeli mistreatment of Palestinians, support for fabricated charges for Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning as well as other whistleblowers (Trump probably would have not won election had it not been for Wikileaks. The civil rights of those individuals have been violated as badly as Trump's was, and yet, he turns his back on them? Rather hypocritical on Trump's part. But that's Donald Trump), pardons for people like Joe Arpaio. I could go on.
