Almost three quarters of Americans want an independent investigation into Russia's hacking of our election, and not some totally untrustworthy congressional investigation.

Courtesy of NBC News: 

Nearly three-quarters of Americans say they want an independent, non-partisan commission instead of Congress to investigate Russia's involvement in the 2016 election, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. 

Seventy-three percent of respondents prefer the independent investigation, versus 16 percent who pick Congress. 

That seems totally obvious and I am sure that most of you are on board with this as well.

But then we have this:

Still, a majority of Americans — 54 percent — believe that Congress should investigate whether there was contact between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, which is essentially unchanged from February's NBC/WSJ poll.

What the what?

That makes no fucking sense to me.

To me it actually makes MORE sense for there to be an independent investigation into possible Trump campaign ties to the Russian, than an independent investigation into the meddling with the election. Though to be honest I don't really see why the two investigations should even be conducted separately.

This poll comes on the heels of a report that the Senate Intelligence Committee's Russian probe (And these are supposedly the good guys who DON'T have a Devin Nunes.) is shamefully understaffed: 

Three months into the committee’s investigation, there are no staff members dedicated to it full-time, those working on it do not have backgrounds in investigative experience and no interviews have been conducted with key players, The Daily Beast added. 

It appears to be progressing at a slower pace than other committee investigations, it added. 

Two sources familiar with the matter told the site that the committee has not interviewed former national security adviser Michael Flynn; Roger Stone and Carter Page, two advisers during Donald Trump's presidential campaign; former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort; and White House adviser Jared Kushner, who is also Trump's son-in-law. “It’s either a real investigation or not,” an individual with knowledge of the committee’s activities said. “You have to have an approved investigative guide. You have to make it formal. 

"Can you have a credible investigation with only seven part-time staffers, doing everything in secret?”

So yeah, I'm thinking that the entire investigation should be handed over to an independent commission tasked simply with finding the truth no matter where it leads, and without all of that "Oh God I can't destroy my party's President" BS to gum up the works.

    Yes. And we also want to know how and why this pos con artist made it through the vetting process from RNC GOP FEC FBI CIA and Dept of Defense. How on earth did this asshole even be allowed on ballot. This tells me that there were very very bad people planted in place to make it happen all over this country in various positions. ANYONE that researched this pos over the years would have found tons of criminal activity, nasty friends, dirty pals. Americans would NOT ever elect this lying slob as president under ANY circumstance. The election was rigged and the liar don john trump knows it.

    2. What vetting process?

      All they care about is WINNING! They don't care how or who gives them the win.

  2. If you peruse the list of Drumpf's campaign staff it is easier to figure out which ones did not have contacts with wild Russkies. And then when confronted I believe everyone has lied about it including Kushner and Sessions, Flynn, etc.

    This is why I want Hollywood out of political discussion. There is no bigger hypocrite. In the world.

    It was clear for years that Richard Gere would be shunned by much of Hollywood for speaking out about human rights violations by the Chinese regime. The Chinese regime has been working steadily to gain more and more control in the American film festival and is doing so in other cultural areas as well, including in other countries. These things don't happen without approval by the Chinese communist regime. It is all part of their stated goal of global domination. Cultural control is a very high priority for communist regimes.

      I see Gere in films all the times. But he left "Hollywood" to raise his kid back east, right? Before the divorce?

    2. So you're saying that only some Americans can exercise their Constitutional rights?

      Why, how Fascist of you.

      What next? Teachers no longer allowed to vote?

    From former Clinton WH staffer Claude Taylor (@TrueFactsStated) on Twitter: "Mitch McConnell is dirty. He was briefed by Comey on Russian interference prior to election and then obstructed-then took Russian money. Russian money flooded into our system-not just into Trump campaign but into House and Senate as well. McConnell/Ryan are nervous. Stay tuned."

    " the system was “susceptible to abuse” by women.
    Among Red Pillers, the notion that women commonly abuse the judicial system for means of retaliation, or “CRY RAPE” for attention, is viewed as a matter-of-FACT element of the feminist “agenda.”"

      "Trump repeatedly turns from questions of policy and program to the obsessions and insecurities that seem to consume his attention.
      "Trump is profoundly insecure: insecure about his electoral victory, insecure about his public standing, and insecure about his progress as chief executive."With any given issue and on any given concern, Trump turns immediately to how he’s perceived;"by affirming his position as president. “Whatever. In the meantime, I’m here, and they’re not.”Presidential insecurity isn’t harmless, especially for a commander in chief who is obsessed with winning and who seems to see life as a dominance game, where someone or something has to be a LOSER."

  10. What's so confusing?

    Obviously some people want BOTH a Congressional and an Independent investigation.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
