I'm really starting to think that China is starting to act like Imperial Japan, especially with regard to nationalism.

That while Americans have been dicking around becoming extremists for their respective political malarkey the chinese uniparty has consolidated power, laid down the framework for their populace, and exploited their access to natural resources and cheap labor to sway the world stage to them?

More like we are so keen to earn an extra dollar or few we don't care what the cost of doing it is, as long as we have that cash now.

Can we stop talking about Clinton emails now?

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/10/18/hillary-clinton-email-probe-people-cited-but-no-evidence-deliberate-mishandling/4027787002/

The State Department has completed its internal investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of private email and found violations by 38 people, some of whom may face disciplinary action.


The investigation, launched more than three years ago, determined that those 38 people were "culpable" in 91 cases of sending classified information that ended up in Clinton's personal email, according to a letter sent to Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley this week and released on Friday. The 38 are current and former State Department officials but were not identified.


Although the report identified violations, it said investigators had found "no persuasive evidence of systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information." However, it also made clear that Clinton's use of the private email had increased the vulnerability of classified information.

Bullshit. It's very difficult to send out classified information without realizing it and even if you do it's still a crime.

Right, so when is she going to jail?

Clinton: leaks classified information.
Democrats: meh

Trump: makes a phone call
Democrats: OMFG IMPEACH!!!!!!!1!!

Y'all are truly special in the head.
A Democrat could cure cancer, bring world peace and rid the world of all pollution and you would still hate them.

As for leaking classified information, A) Clinton has been cleared how many times?
and B) are you equally outraged about that satellite photo that Trump tweeted?

Careful, your TDS is showing.

The emails have been investigated several times already.This latest investigation was conducted by the Trump administration, and they made no shocking discovery.

Trump released a transcript that proved what he did, and it is beyond mere political influence between countries. That is despite the probability that the transcript is highly abbreviated.

If Obama did the same thing during a call, asking for a favor to investigate a political opponent, you would be incensed at the mere suggestion of impropriety.

It's a perversion of justice and of the legal system. She released classified information, something that I'd be in jail for without a shadow of a doubt, and yet she is free as a bird. This really isn't all that complicated. Even Comey admitted that Hillary was careless with classified info and sent it out over unsecured channels repeatedly. There is no excuse you can make for such behavior, you can simply choose not to care about it and to dismiss it because she's a fellow Democrat.

Trump actually has the legal authority to do that... Because he is the President... unlike Hillary.

Let me ask you something... Are you at all concerned about Hunter Biden being on the board of a Ukrainian energy company and collecting a huge salary, despite having no background in the energy sector or in Ukraine in general, all while his dad was the VP? Follow-up question - are you at all concerned about VP Biden threatening to withhold aid to Ukraine unless they fired the prosecutor who was looking into the company that Hunter was working for, and then bragging about the success of this strong-arm tactic on television?
