    He quoted the actual report which the article failed to do. It interpreted politically what the report said despite clear statements otherwise. Read the source first before reading the article.

    I was thinking in terms of their criminal minds.

    But point taken. I've been saying for years now that trump is the most dangerous criminal in the world.

    Not even that I would argue.

    Trump is well known in the legal circles to delay the process as much as possible. He was successful with a whole bunch of small business owners in the beginning and has had diminishing returns since then.

    I would compare Trump to John Gotti as a more accurate comparison.

    That entirely misses the genuine danger trump poses to the world. Sure he's a thug. But the day he took control of the most powerful military in the world, he went far beyond the level of a mere mobster. And he is actively working to destroy democracy. He is calling his private army to attack. And they are attacking. The FBI and DHS had to issue a special warning because of trump.

    He is actively waging war on the US. This is the most important thing to understand.

    That is what Jan 6th was all about. It was about overturning the Constitution. That is an act of war. That is treason.

    Trump possesses that power because of his followers who are absolutely loyal to him. That is where his power comes from. But the reality is that Trump is doing the same thing since the 1980s, quite literally I might add. All of Trump's actions come down to this one simple truth: he cares only for himself and cannot admit wrongdoing or that the law applies to him no matter what. This has been cultivated from his Father when he was alive and a young boy to now.

    I am no fan of Trump and what he is doing now is just what he has always done. the only difference between the 1990s and now, the stakes, the Presidency of the United States in 2024.

    You have examples, post some links. Not to conservative websites.

    You guys have hung your hat on his ability to “declassify” things and that he did just that before he left office. The problem is, as I have said since the beginning of this, that their is no record of him declassifying anything. Your a smart guy and a good poster AN, and I know you understand that their is a process that has to be followed when something gets declassified, so that others in the federal government know not only how to handle the information, but also to make sure that their are no legal cases in process that would/could be dropped, or assets that could be compromised or hurt. Those agencies also need to know what information is out that would affect any open/ongoing investigations and cases.

    Now, Im sure you don’t support Trump taking all his records, and files on these cases with him to his personal residence right ? I mean, wasn’t that the entirety of the “lock her up” crowd ?

    Wrong. Try reading what he typed out and you would see he lifted it from the article that was commenting on the report.

    You should have familiarized yourself with this case before posting nonsense. The evidence was provided by the Unabomber's brother David. Letters and writings that matched the Unabomber's manifesto style and long held beliefs. After years of having no leads at all this was the lead the FBI had hoped for. David told the FBI his brother had been living alone in a shack in the woods. He was an angry loner. He had an advance degreed in mathematics and was highly intelligent according to his brother.

    Yes, I read the Washington Examiner's article. The IG report, which Mello Guy quoted, said something different. In this case, go with the IG report on Comey.

    Here is what Mello Guy stated exactly in his rep

    The link below is the actual IG report on James Comey

    Comey violate policy and his "employment contract" but nothing in the IG report says he violated any laws whatsoever. Perhaps you should do the same with the actual IG Report and not biased media outlets that are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.

    Says the person who is the donkey following the carrot blindfolded off the cliff.

    Again, read the IG Report and not the news media if you want accurate information.

    You posted this on my post #64. I think you may have made a mistake. That post was about the Unabomber. Not Comey or an IG.

    Perhaps what you meant to say was political hackery. I know, you use them interchangeably...

    You remind me of the movie "Say Anything". So chew on this a while before responding.

    Sure enough, a few months after the manifesto was published, a lawyer representing David Kaczynski called the FBI. He provided them with a 23-page essay his client’s brother, Theodore Kaczynski, wrote in 1971. The agent who first read it immediately spotted similarities.

    Turchie said that when he got a copy of the essay, the phrase “sphere of human freedom” jumped out at him. He said he went back to the Unabomber’s manifesto and found this line: “We are going to argue that industrial-technological society cannot be reformed in such a way as to prevent it from progressively narrowing the sphere of human freedom.”

    The similarities in the texts along with other evidence that came to light as agents investigated more of Kaczynski’s past and records made Turchie more and more certain that they had their man. “The little things started adding up,” he said. “Several of us believed we had identified the Unabomber.”

    Good god do you realize how goofy that sounds. Gotti that ordered more murders than clinton did call girls, and you think Trump is a comparison. That's explains a lot about your skewed posting.

    More likely alleged in that category. Teflon Don, as they called him because law enforcement could not pin murders. He was convicted under the RICO statutes, or conspiracy to commit murder, based on the wiretaps, via search warrants, that the FBI and NYPD obtained through surveillance.

    But I consider Trump and Gotti two peas of the same pod in their actins, persona, and other distinguishable attributes
