    Anonymous sources are used reasonably by newspapers like the New York Times; the Washington Post; and USA TODAY. They almost have to...if they are to perform the duties the press provides.

    I think they do it judiciously.

    You apparently do not.

    So?

    If Mueller had released the report to the public, you'd be the first one here to bellow out of the other side of your mouth about overreach!

    Oh, and the Trump team is trying to prevent any summaries prepared by Mueller from being released.

    We had the summary report of the Attorney General, the Deputy Attorney General and Mueller working with the Office of Legal Counsel. We have no new indictments from the grand jury. We have no collusion and no obstruction.

    This is hearsay by anonymous sources. Did Mueller issue an objection to the summary report? No.

    Nice projection, but I'm still citing Mueller's only public release ... here ya go. :;): https://www.realclearpolitics.com/v...ve_deputy_ag_rod_rosenstein_announcement.html If you think Mueller announcing no evidence of collusion, no recommendation on obstruction isn't something I'd bookmark and post, you don't know me at all.

    It is impossible to accept the words of the liberal news media

    Without names the story is just fiction

    Only if you are required by your handlers to call it impossible.

    Names do not determine if a story is true or fiction.

    Some stories with names are fiction...some are true.

    Some stories without names are fiction...some are true.

    Think about it.

    We should just get on with it and accuse Trump of witchcraft and let's start the water test as eventually we will end up here at some point.

    Imagine if Mueller, while investigating Trump, found an unsecured server that the Russians had hacked, which he then used bleach bit to destroy 30k "personal" emails on that server.

    You mean the former Clinton attorneys that he used? Those "former investigators".... the NYTs should be ashamed of their repetitive forays into fake news. Did you see that their subscription base is already eroding.... Wonder why...

    yep....Hitler had devoted followers. Trump also has devoted followers. But so did William Wallace, Joan of Arc, Martin Luther King, Robin Hood (fiction) and even Jesus. Point is, your comparison of "evil" based on the number of people that holds someone in admiration shows an astounding amount of ignorance. People follow those that they believe are fighting for their cause....and yes, they sometimes do turn a blind eye to atrocities in hopes that their cause is advanced. However, I do not see that this is the case with Trump...yet. However, the minute he talks about putting people in ovens, I will let you know.

    Sometimes you have to remember the "anonymous source" is simply the vision in the mirror parroting what the reporters want to hear and they report those then as "anonymous" because, well, who would trust that it was just their fantasy, or opinions....

    A story is either true...or not true.

    Whether names are attached or not does not determine which they are.

    As long as there are no names the story is unconfirmed and assumed to be a lie

    The ignorance is all yours, Nunya.

    I did not make the correlation you are suggesting.


    Not if you are one of the people going into the ovens.

    You would not last very long as a cashier in a bank

    The first hot check you cashed with no ID would be your downfall

    That is an absurdity...but if you want to engage in an absurdity, fine with me.

    Be as absurd as you want.

    That has nothing to do with a story being true or not.

    That may have to do with a story being verified or not.

    But a story may be true...and not verified.

    The absence of a real accuser has everything to do with deciding if the story is true or not

    Without facts its just fiction

    No...I did not.

    Read what actually was written...not what you want to pretend was written.

    You wrote: "Point is, your comparison of "evil" based on the number of people that holds someone in admiration shows an astounding amount of ignorance."

    I did not say that in any way.

    My position is that I have learned lots about how a guy like Hitler could have lots of followers...by what has happened during the last couple of years.

    Hitler was odious...yet people continued to attach to him.

    Trump is every bit as odious...yet people continue to attach to him.
