    They are already crying foul.

    Under the previous Democratic President, his rivals were spied on by the state. The state's intelligence services set up a number of entrapment schemes using foreign nationals many of who were in other NATO countries.

    That also employed companies whose job it is to dig dirt who sought information from Russian government insiders. They published what they found (or made up) in a document designed to discredit their main political opponent.

    That government also prosecuted members of the media,electronically spied on them along with judges, political opponents and business people in direct contravention of their Fourth Amendment rights.

    They also enlisted Ukraine to produce information that allowed Paul Manafort to be pursued in the courts as soon as he started working on the Trump campaign and later they asked for help on getting dirt on President Trump.

    All that is known. I suspect that there is more that is not yet known. How can the Dem supporters expect to get away with it and why do they think their denials sound in any way convincing?

    A democrat would never do something so mind bogglingly stupid.

      She didn't, actually.  Speaking to private foreign citizens is not remotely the same as working with foreign governments, nor is it remotely illegal, nor is there any sane reason that it would be.

      Conservatives' apparently complete inability to understand that isn't liberals' fault.

    You mean the way Obama did?

    Money from Barack Obama’s campaign fund went to pay Fusion GPS who hired former British Spy Christopher zstele to go to Russia and get dirt on candidate Donal Trump.

      Also, speaking to foreign private citizens is not the same as dealing with foreign governments, and there's no non-stupid reason it would be illegal.

      As usual Joe has no #$@!ing clue what he's talking about.

    Uh, dumbsh*t? The LAST democratic nominee spent more than a year doing exactly that prior to the Nov election.

    Or does your fish brain only retain data for 20 seconds?  Here let me refresh:

    -Fusion GPS

    -fake dossier

    -the fraudulent ohrs

    -christopher steele

    Should I keep going or are you already embarrassed at your hypocrisy?

    Republicans will cry foul if the next Democratic president uses his left hand to sign his name.  

    You can't reason with people who have abandoned reason.  Just ignore them.

    And ignore the anony-turd and his thumbs-up alts who don't understand that speaking to foreign private citizens is not at all the same as dealing with foreign governments, and there's no non-stupid reason it would be illegal.

    As usual this anony-turd has no #$@!ing clue what he's talking about.

      Nah.  Freaking out over tan suits and Dijon mustard is a pretty much exclusively Republican thing.

      It's only lawbreaking that gets swept under the rug.  If it's by a Republican, of course.

    Republicans will ALWAYS act to preserve their power no matter what the cost. Insulting veterans... attacking minorities... blatant fascism... literally anything.
