Might be helpful if you provide links to your assertions, though? What "IG report" were you referring to?

Another big story that nobody is paying attention to is the IG report where there is strong suggestion that the top brass at the FBI was anti-Trump and seemingly gave Hillary a free pass for a crime that someone else got a jail sentence for.
That's not what your link says though, is it? From your own article above...

"While the investigation found there was no evidence that the messages and the personal opinions ultimately affected any decisions made in the Clinton case".

Typical of rightists to intentionally misrepresent facts to try and form a semblance of a case.

The IG Report conclusion was "no political bias" so it is not a big story but just "a nothing burger"!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump 'threw two Starburst' towards Angela Merkel at G7 summit

He took two Starburst candies out, threw them on the table and said: ‘here, Angela, don’t say I never give you anything.’”

Pro-Clinton FBI investigators found Clinton to be innocent (Shock! Horror!). Same investigators mention an 'insurance policy' in case Trump wins. Same FBI paid for 'Pissgate' dossier that was then used to justify monitoring of the Trump Campaign. Trump complains of 'wiretapping', everyone laughs. Then 'pissgate' is exposed. FBI then investigates FBI and finds FBI to be innocent. Does it not make you wonder?

I did say there was a suggestion of bias, not that there was proven bias. Anyway, time will tell

But Trump now signed an executive order to stop the separation of children and parents.

So what's the problem, or what should be done differently?
He could order kidnapped children to be returned to their parents

Umm... maybe not ordered the separation policy in the first place?

Tweets in response to the hapless Ivanka's message:

Quote:
Thank you @POTUS for taking critical action ending family separation at our border. Congress must now act + find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values;the same values that so many come here seeking as they endeavor to create a better life for their families


Quote:
translated: thank you dad, for creating a humanitarian crisis that you refused to solve for days, blamed on others, and said you couldn't address... until it became untenable and then you addressed it. but not really because you now have a family detention crisis on the horizon
Quote:
Herod announces no more baby killings. All hail Herod!
Pretty much clears it up.

Clinton investigation was two years ago, if there was a shred of real evidence to support your allegations it would have emerged long ago.
There are many Republicans working in the FBI who would long ago have been whistle blowing if there were political bias.

Here is a contrary allegation for you!
Trump is a closet Democrat who contributed to many Democrat candidates prior to 2011. His current mission is to destroy the GOP, time will tell!

Right, but he's now nipped that issue in the bud after it blew up into a major crisis that he could not lie his way out of by attempting to blame both Democrats and Congress and after over 2,000 more children were torn from their parents.
ftfy

Some big bud

It would be better if he returned these incarcerated children to their parents

Kind of serves as a benchmark for how far Trump has to be pushed before he'll hold his hands up, admit he dropped a bollock, and fix it.

But only for 20 days when the children will have to be released (see the Flores settlement); presumably into some sort of custodial care - unless the whole family is released
