...trying to stop a dually elected President of the United States.

Well, many think he truly was elected by both American and Russian constituencies. 😂

The FBI just thwarted a domestic (yes domestic) terrorist plot... seems like the perfect day to attack them.
.
One has nothing to do with the other. The FBI is a great agency, but are we suppose to turn our back on corruption?

The entire basis of the smears on McCabe and others is getting people to turn their backs on corruption.

If they didnít engage in behavior that appears improper, nobody would care. Taking roughly $500k from Clunton donors while investigating her, having an anti-Trump partisan deeply invested in keeping Trump out of office being a key investigator into both Hillary and Trump, the Loretta Lynch tarmac meeting, the Comey leaks to the media...

How can anybody who cares about unbiased justice feel comfortable with any of that?

So do we stop the Russia investigation?

Thank God, then.

No, not at this point.  I do think that the scope of the investigation should be clarified internally, however.

Putting aside everything else --If Mueller proves to your satisfaction that Trump and the Russians coordinated press releases, the release of dirt on Hillary, manipulating the Republican position on the Ukraine, targeting political positions on facebook and business deals for Manafort, Flynn and Jared, etc.--is it treason (in the common meaning of the word) and should Trump be impeached?

Why not wait to see what Mueller proves and what you all think of what evidence he has?  Some of the coincidences, plus Flynn's guilty plea and Manafort's charges certainly lead to possibilities.  Or do you see the worse case scenario for Trump as politics as usual?

Because Trump knows there is fire somewhere in his past. He's got dirt, the guy's been sued more times than...well just about anyone. He's been sued close to 2000 times, nearly 200 times in federal court. If anyone knows the process and how to maneuver it, it's Donald Trump.

Seems here he and his legal team would rather burn down whole floors of the FBI building than allow the investigation to work. Here's hoping he can only cause superficial damage to America and her institutions.

Why do Trump supporters have to "wait and see" before coming to any conclusions, yet his detractors can just go about talking in certainties about his guilt?

I seriously doubt any everyday citizen really knows what happened, if anything at all, or the scope and depth of what happened if something did actually happen. It gets tiring listening to people on either side talking like they actually know, when they likely have nothing other than biased suspicions based on whatever slanted news source they choose to listen to.

Well, Manafort and Gen. Flynn are GREAT starts.

Even MORE reason to see this thing through to the VERY end.

Yup.

But for the group in power at the moment (Republicans) to be seemingly so one-sided in the smear campaign against the FBI is troubling, to say the least.

What are they trying to hide?

The only reason that there is a Mueller investigation, is because the FBI used a fake dossier to be able to spy on Trump's team (Insurance Policy)....Lots of dirty work atop the FBI.

Oh, I agree the investigations should continue, unimpeded by anyone with something to lose.

I just happen to find it rather distasteful so many people have already decided in their own mind who is or isn't guilty without waiting for the facts of the investigation.
