    3:40 It would not have been conceal. You don't 'guess' what evidence you might have, you wait and see what you in fact do or do not have. It was a mistake, or an attempt to tip the scales.

    I think saying "half the country" is too generous. How about this?
    "If Hillary Clinton had been out president, the country, except Texas, and the world, except Russia would be gloating, or happy that nuclear war is once again off the table. Texas and Russia would be depressed, even though Russia won't admit it."

    I'm torn. On one hand, I think the U.S. is pretty much evil, and the rest of the world should just watch as you destroy yourselves. And the longer Trump is in office, the more likely that will happen. They'll believe the lies again and again, until, when they finally see the truth, it's too late. My only concern is collateral damage to my own country, but I actually think that's even more likely if Trump stays. I'm going to link some videos that may teach any open minded people (so I don't think a lot of American's will pay attention anyway, lol), and just wait and see.
    David's books are backed with public documents (see the source notes at the back), and has followed Trump for 30 years (going back even farther than that). He is also a Pulitzer Prize winner. But, if the American public won't even pay attention to Trump's provable lies, taking credit for things he never did, clearly beholden to Russia, and acting on BEHALF of Russia (just by looking at his OWN actions & words), RIGGING THE ELECTION(!), NOT ENFORCING THE CLEAN AIR & WATER ACT(!), COMPLETELY missing out on international trade deals, severely negatively affecting the US's future economics . . . then by the time they DO pay attention, it'll be FAR too late. I feel bad for the little people who are going to get hurt by Trump's actions (at least half of who back Trump), but if the majority of Americans will blindly believe a conman like this, than maybe it's best if we (the rest of the world) allow them to destroy themselves from the inside (as Lincoln predicted). BTW, to all the vets that back Trump, he proposed a CUT of $15,000 from the annual vet income (currently around $35,000) upon retirement. So, while he said, "I'm going to do a lot for the vets. I'm going to do so much for the vets! [paraphrasing]" he actually proposed the EXACT OPPOSITE. You are on your way to becoming a fascist country led by a dictator - V. Putin (with mini-dictator/face puppet D. Trump).

    God, Trump is worse than Hillary so I voted for her, but this shows that neither her nor the left learned the lesson from that election. The Dems can't win unless they have a candidate that is capable of getting people excited and out to the polls. The most unpopular Democratic nominee (among dems and reps) in American history is not that.

    Comey is a fucking pedophile! Look it up! Everyone needs to know about a discovery channel documentary called the conspiracy of Silence. It profiles an alledged pedophile ring of Washington's elite. Comey was one of the people fingered as well as the Clinton's among others 30 years later WikiLeaks and pizzagate confirm the same thing! These elite scum are being exposed as pedophile's everyday and trust and believe Trump is well aware of what's been going on. Trump fired Comey cuz he's a pedophile scum! Please look into it the movie has been leaked and needs to be told to the world! These people have been victimizing our children for decades! America needs to know about this and light fire to these sadistic fucks!ruclip.com/video/vBSIDQt5Dwc/video.html

    I'd like to know why Comey didn't come forth with the Russian investigation 11 days before the election. He testified later that he didn't want to influence the election. The one senator called it ironic.

  • *Dwight Kurt Schrute III*

    ... 1:48, caption reads "Clinton: I take absolute personal responsibility for loss," however she continues to blame Wikileaks and the investigation. The funniest part about it is that what Wikileaks did wasn't wrong.. just releasing information that should have been given to the public in the first place.

    If you listen to the Bill Still, the only person who got the polls right last election, Trump had a solid lead the last 3 months and that didn't changed with the emails. f you wants to find out why Hillary Clinton lost, you should study what she did 3 to 4 months Before the election.

    There is no evidence that Hillary was on her way to winning. I remember the attitude of the media and the democratic establishment but the truth is Hillary was a flat. She wasn't a good person to run and no one had passion for her. "Not Donald Trump" isn't good enough apparently to be president.
    Comey just did what he felt was right and didn't concern himself with politics. That's why these pundits blame him, but there really isn't any evidence to support that.
