Outside Mar-a-Lago, a concerned citizen wants to know why the FBI isn’t doing anything about Hillary’s emails or Hunter’s laptop.

Well, I've said he's dirty and I really hope they find enough on him so that he never runs again. So from that, please tell me why I'd be shaken if that's what happens? I'm really curious what I've said, that would make you think my sanity depends on Trump remaining the GOP savior?

Tell me what about this you don't get?

I want him gone, he served his purpose (nobody else had a prayer against Hilary, nobody). but it's time for him to go away and let an adult run as a Republican.

Is that too complicated for you?

"Break out the but Hilary and Hunter playbook Jim"

The FBI director, not me, said it was very concerning the way they swept the Hunter Biden thing under the rug. If the GOP takes the house, it will be their turn to conduct hearings and to engage in impeachments. And they will.

Who swept it under the rug ? The media!

He’s the Current FBI director are you suggesting he’s swept it under the Rug.

And yet you can’t prove a crime was even committed. Feelings aren’t evidence


the GOP takes the house, it will be their turn to conduct hearings and to engage in impeachments. And they will.

Of course they will. But not for legitimate reasons of course . Or to support the rule of law

Americans have finally woken up and stopped focusing on what MSM talking heads & policy wonks were saying and discovered real people are damned upset about Roe, mass shootings, January 6th, the Big Lie, the assault on public schools and Republicans extremism in general.

Media blamed Biden for

…the formula shortage that wasn’t his fault. But won’t give him credit for fixing it.

…gas prices that weren’t his fault. But won’t give him credit that they’ve gone down.

…inflation that wasn’t his fault. But won’t give him credit that it’s stemmed.

And Trumplicans think stealing classified documents is a winner?

I posted a link, which unfortunately you didn't have someone read to you. The FBI director said it's "very concerning" to him the way it was suppressed. Those are his words, not mine, and I bet he knows almost as much about what happened, as you do.

"And yet you can’t prove a crime was even committed"

Well, when they refuse to investigate, isn't it kind of hard to prove anything? Carter Page was never charged with anything, that didn't stop the same FBI from lying to a FISA court to get a warrant to spy on him. But Hunter is untouchable. For now.

Yet in the Gallup poll taken in the summer of 2020 (during the height of the pandemic), a record number of Americans said they were better off after 4 years of Trump. According to Gallup - Trumps 56% who said they were better off was "easily the highest Gallup has recorded among comparable points in previous incumbents' presidencies."

Lemme guess - Obama's policies were the reasons why so many said they were better off in 2020 than in 2016.

You can use the google. He looked to be commenting on an agent who was making some social media posts that he didn’t like but had nothing to do specifically with Hunter Biden.

Ah. donuts your interpretation of his comments, as opposed to his explicit comments, that would suggest i was confused. And we are all shocked that your interpretation of his comments, has a pro hunter biden result. No one saw that coming.

If the gop takes the house ( more of an if than i’d have thought), we will
see. No matter what facts get revealed,, we all look forward to your creative spin and denial.

Wray: “when i read the letter that describes the kinds of things you’re talking about, i found it deeply troubling.”

Things, plural.

the letter includes claims of the FBIs social media posts and allegations they buried the Hunter Biden affair.

Yup, i’m the one who is confused.

You’re correct, you’re confused.

Kennedy grilled Wray on Thibault’s alleged partisan actions on social media over the past few years, such as “liking” a Washington Post article titled “William Barr has gone rogue” and tweeting to Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) that her father — former Vice President #^&#^&#^&#^& Cheney — was a “disgrace.” Kennedy also mentioned Thibault’s retweet of a Lincoln Project post saying that “Donald Trump is a psychologically broken, embittered, and deeply unhappy man.”

Yet Wray who heads the FBI has done nothing public in the Hunter case why do you think that is.

Please don’t say Biden because Of Trump a sitting POTUS a an not be charged with a crime ( and Iam not saying ones been committed)

2 it’s called chain of custody. It’s a real thing. No court or judges are going to allow that laptop which has been handled by so many conservatives and Republicans Biden Haters it makes Jeffery Epstein look like an alter boy . And if they do any good defense lawyer will have a field day


Hunters investigation has entered its final stages, prosecutors have narrowed their focus to tax and gun-related charges, the people say.

Wow getting a gun No Republicans care about gun laws

And now Republicans care about Tax evasion Or just Hunters

Do you make $75,000 or less?” tweeted House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. “Democrats’ new army of 87,000 IRS agents will be coming for you—with 710,000 new audits for Americans who earn less than $75k.” Richard Grenell, Trump’s former Acting Director of National Intelligence, wrote on the social media platform: “The FBI raids Trump’s house and the Democrats vote to add 87,000 new IRS agents to go after Americans. Wake up, America.”

But they won’t tell the Truth. They can’t

includes roughly $78 billion for the IRS to be phased in over 10 years. A Treasury Department report from May 2021 estimated that such an investment would enable the agency to hire roughly 87,000 employees by 2031. But most of those hires would not be Internal Revenue agents, and wouldn’t be new positions.

Today in the U.S., corporations will steal $137 million in wages, rich people will steal $2.75 billion in taxes, and 1,300 people will die from poverty, air pollution, and medical error. Think about who benefits from the news ignoring this and focusing on how the IRS will get you

Homeland Security watchdog delays probe — with GOP help

Joseph V. Cuffari and his staff have refused to release certain documents and tried to block interviews for a long-running probe that has evolved into more than a dozen allegations of misconduct.

Another witch or just more of the same GOP integrity

Kennedy grilled Wray for the FBI agents social media posts, AND for the allegation that the same agent didn't want to look into Hunter. 2 things. And Wray referenced things that were deeply troubling to him.

The "s" at the end of "things", means plural.
