Settle in pumpkin. Ken Starr ran his for 4 years. Mueller's already scored a hell of a lot more than a stained dress.

I'll bet the Starr investigation was a lot more entertaining to be on. Bank fraud and money laundering vs. slutty interns and presidential c*mshots.

Like what is more incriminating in this investigation than a stained dress? In fact, what does Mueller even have, other than a Clinton-paid-for fake dossier?

How many times are you going to ask that question when you already know the answer? If there is any evidence then it won't be shown to the public until the investigation is over.

Trying to deligitimize an ongoing investigation because you haven't seen any incriminating evidence isn't exactly the best of strategies, no matter how popular it seems to be.

Russian meddling, period - or Russian meddling with the assistance of the Trump campaign?

If you're denying Russian attempts to influence our election, period, then the entire intelligence community of the USA would like a couple of words with you.

Weird that we don't see "most Americans" being rung up on 32 different criminal counts every year, then.

The only reasonable explanation is that it's because of his association with Trump. You're right.

Poor Paulie - he didn't do anything wrong, just a victim of circumstance.

Because the tax law is setup to be use as a weapon to anyone who cross the deepstate. Which is why they need to abolish the income tax and replace it with sales tax and traiffs.

Don't. Break. The. Fucking. Law.

Or in Paulie's case, laws.

How about starting there?

See if you have a half of day you could read all 3 indictments on Paul and come to the informed look at the evidence(if proven) is way more then cheating on your taxes. Now if russian money goes thru filtered by those around Trump that means something. https://www.justice.gov/sco great read

oh and the part where falsifying documents to obtain bank loans in exchange for Trump cabinet positions has a quality of not just taxes. https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/ma...ding-to-gates/

Sorry - my question was rhetorical.

I don't think it's acceptable for the American public to be expected to give Mueller over a year to conduct his investigation, with no evidence, no measurement, and no accountability. We need some sort of blue dress at this point - something that shows an indication of progress; else it's just a witch hunt, distraction, and enabling of the #resist crowd - none of which is legitimate.

So if you can't see the evidence, then it doesn't exist?

Schrodinger would be disappointed.

Also, how far into the investigation before Starr got his hands on Lewinski's dress?

Much like drunk posting, pre 6:00 AM posting is also a bad idea. You are correct, May. Typo when I said March. Still falls short of the "2 plus years" of investigation garbage that was thrown out by Norm.

No, we don't "need" a blue dress or any other evidence. We are members of the general public. We aren't owed sh*t, no matter how curious we are. Hey, I'm curious about what our nuclear codes are and how our international spy efforts work, but I'm not owed that either, nor do I expect it.

What we are owed is access to any unsealed indictments. That much we get. And for those of us who take the time to read them, they are eye opening.
