You have got to be kidding me!

Now hold on, we can't be wasting our time investigating Donald Trump. We still have Clinton e-mails to read.
Courtesy of Buzzfeed: 

The election may be over, but the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will continue its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use at the State Department, Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz told reporters Monday. 

“This was never a political targeting from the beginning. Just because there’s a political election doesn’t mean it goes away. So of course I’m going to continue to pursue that,” Chaffetz said. 

He said it remained a priority for the committee, though he noted, “I’ve got a lot of top priorities.” 

“It’s potentially one of the largest breaches of security in the history of the State Department. It cannot and should never be repeated again. How was it that so much information was able to migrate out the door? These are still open questions that we need to finish up so they don’t happen again.”

No, it was by no measure "one of the largest breaches of security in history."

If Chaffetz is looking for that he may want to keep his eyes on the incoming administration.  

The hate these Republicans have for Hillary Clinton verges on the psychotic.

Which, by the way, is yet another reason why we needed her as our President.

After all the only reason for them to fear and hate her this much is because of what they thought she might accomplish while occupying of the White House.

And anybody who terrifies the Republicans this much, will always be my number one pick for Commander-in-Chief.

    Watch them twist, spin and lie. The RNC GOP hired the company in the UK to hack and gather info on Americans and the Russians are playing on it. France, Britian, and other countries too. It is the global alt right crazy creeps attempting to take over democracy.

    O/T Of course they haven’t used leverage over him he isn’t in office yet. What a moron.

    As for unfair, how about the fabrication that Obama is not an American citizen? What goes around comes around.

    Living in Nazi Germany will be after the inauguration.

    The GOP began their Hillary Hate Fest back when she was Arkansas' first lady. They've always been afraid of her - smart, educated, interested in helping people. All the qualities that the GOP objects to, especially in women. Given that the GOP members of Congress never raised a peep when the Bush administration was outright destroying emails and just about everything else before departing the scene in January 2009 (all of which was highly illegal) makes it even more absurd that they've had this long, long witch hunt targeting Hillary Clinton.

      One reason Hillary lost: she is a woman.

    This might backfire on him because it will lead to the russians and hence traitor trump.

    Her email server was never compromised, but they will get into the leaked emails, hence the source ie russia, which will open the door to trump’s campaign and the treason committed by donnie.

    I think he should be more concerned about the incoming traitor in the White House, but they have to waste tax dollars somewhere to justify taking away the healthcare subsidies.

    This is nothing more than a distraction to take the spotlight off the Republicans and Trump.

    All the GOP are in cahoots with Russia and Trump.

    Republicans = Russians.

    They are working together. Reason? OIL MONEY. President Obama shut off their income source (thru sanctions and clean energy initiatives). They are hell bent on that sweet, sweet money flowing to their rich donors again. They could care less about Americans, and in fact, they hate us.

    I said yesterday that Obama had better pardon Hillary before leaving office b/c it was clear during Sessions' questioning that the House was still going to go after Hillary. i can't recall the exact wording now, but as soon as I heard Sessions' answer I was, like, WTF?! and couldn't believe they were still going to go after her. This Chaffetz is a dog, but I have to wonder if there's somebody else who simply wants Hillary to keep being dragged down the road. Call me crazy, but I can imagine Conway in Trump's ear on this. She and her husband have been obsessed with the Clintons forever, and Trump may try acting bighearted but he has been dissing Hillary these past couple weeks and saying she and her camp have not accepted the election results and so it's easy to picture him wanting to punish her.

      I agree. They will never give up on Hillary hate. As time goes in and people begin to really realize how good a President Mr Obama was, I suspect they will continue to disparage Hillary as their primary way to disparage the Democrats.

    John McCain was given information on trump/russians LAST YEAR and he turned it over to the FBI director.

    So the FBI sat on this for a year and has done nothing, At this point, Comey is a traitor just like trump.

    The Associated Press

    WASHINGTON (AP) The Latest on President-elect Donald Trump (all times EST):

    9: 15 a.m.
    The Republican chairman of the Armed Services Committee says he received sensitive information last year and turned it over to the FBI, an apparent reference to news that President-elect Donald Trump was told by intelligence officials about an unsubstantiated report that Russia had compromising personal and financial information about him.

    Sen. John McCain of Arizona said in a statement Wednesday that he examined the contents of the material, was unable to make a judgment about the accuracy and delivered the information to the director of the FBI, James Comey.

    McCain said: "That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue."

    OT, but yesterday on IM someone mentioned that Kushner got into Harvard without an impressive record. Just saw someone's tweet on Malcolm Nance's Twitter showing a book page that said Kushner's dad decided in 1998 to donate 2.5 million to the school in 250,0000 dollar installments.

    No way in double hockeys am I watching Trump's presser. He is not MY president and never will be. I was hoping you'd post President Obama's farewell, Gryph, but maybe it's too damned depressing to do so. I cried.

    After the Trump dossier, James Comey is running out of excuses

    ...So Comey understands that the FBI weighing in publicly on open investigations, when charges are still being proved, is unwise. Doing so puts those being investigated at the mercy of innuendo and rumor. Yet Comey ditched this rule when he notified Congress 11 days before the election that the FBI was looking into whether there were previously unrevealed emails from Hillary Clinton on a laptop belonging to her aide’s estranged husband.

  17. THIS IS WHY OBAMA NEEDS TO PARDON HILLARY!

    I don't care if she's done nothing wrong. They will not let this go. Trump promises are so much toilet paper. They're not even useful enough to wipe your ass.

    The only way to shut this down is to pardon her. That blocks anything they try to pull.

  18. I understand that being questioned by Congress doesn't mean people lose their constitutional rights; they can plead the fifth, etc.

    I hope Hillary's attorneys are coming up with something to belt Chaffetz and his goons over the head. There must be something along the lines of malicious prosecution that can be invoked. Or I'd like to think so, anyway.
