yeah, but this is bull$hit!  this guy illegally leaked the fisa warrant copy he had in his possession to his girlfriend reporter...and all he was charged with was lying to the FBI.  This is a coverup that Trump's admin is a part of and it's crap.  Unless he's somehow cooperating against some higher ups, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.  

 

They are just ringing the dinner bell to alert those elites above of what is yet to come. Nervous people do stupid stuff and make mistakes.

That doesn't make any sense at all.  Why let this guy off?  They have him dead to rights, leaking classified information to multiple news outlets and he gets off pleading guilty to just one count of lying to the FBI?  

 

What about this one?  I don't know the rules about posting links, my fault for not reading them carefully...but, why is the DOJ declining to prosecute the senior fbi official for taking free tickets from the press?

Depends on who the canary is and what song it's singing.  Is it Baker?  Maybe.  But really, how much more evidence do we need at this point?  We just need someone willing to prosecute the myriad crimes we know of already.

Patience is required now... hast will only work in the favor of those that have committed the crimes against the government. Can't give them any opportunities to escape through any kind of technicality! Military tribunals will be used to prosecute... the courts are destroyed with liberal judges that no longer rule by the law, but rather by their political motivation. Trumps election was no mistake.

I'll just continue on with my thought that nothing is going to happen to any of the major players...and if I'm wrong, I'll be happy to be wrong.

That would be Jeff Sessions. And he's not gonna do it. Which is why he will be replaced (one way or another) after the midterms. Which I believe will be battle royale for many pols, on both sides of the aisle. Get ready for yet another media chitstorm. :dismay:
