    He knows what you’ve been hiding.

    He knows where you have been.

    He knows if you been cheating…

    He knows if you’re Russian.

    Oh, you better get out. You better not lie.

    You better get out, I'm telling you why.

    We need to stop entertaining intellectual curiosity items about trump and hold him to account for doing everything from obstructing investigations to enriching himself by refusing to divest interests. His henchmen keep trying to normalize the abnormality of his behavior. Nothing about his time in office has been normal and nothing about him has changed. He is grossly incompetent and proves it daily. He is using the office to enrich himself and his spawn, and proves it daily.

    Replacing recused AG Jeff Sessions, and pre-approved successor DAG Rod Rosenstein, with willing sacrificial lamb (and plausible scapegoat) Acting AG Matthew Whitaker would serve the corrupt intent to choke off and terminate special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation within 30-60 days. All of this overt executive action will be done and over with before the Holidays, so that the Democrats cannot protect and save Mueller in time.

    1. I don't know anyone (especially those who got caught having a past history of "what he is about to do for me to FIX my problem, and then be gone).
    2. I know that he is well respected, and that he worked for Jeff Sessions (so you can blame Jeff later, after he helped me SQUELCH all investigations into me and my family businesses).

      +Mr Spacely no you wake up! Everything that has been investigated had/has nothing to do with Trump. It would be on every news 24/7 if there was anything there. You need to realize this is a major sting on clinton and previous admin. Just wait and see lol

    • Mr Spacely

      It's not about what Trump "wants." It's about respecting the rule of law. Trying to obstruct the investigation before it concludes would be illegal.
      P.S and where have you been?? So far 19 people including Trump's own campaign advisor, foreign policy advisor and lawyer+ a few Russian businesses have all been indicated or have already plead guilty to criminal charges. Wake up 😑
