There’s plenty of RepCon vs. LibDem forums you could post on.  IF you already annoyed them all, just use another screen name.
I haven't forgotten that you were formerly on this forum as "Burnsred the communist".

BTW, I did get tossed off of a Tea Party forum for being too libertarian! Grin

*SIGH*

All these phony baloney "investigations" have been based on known facts to begin with. 
This worked its way into my conscious mind just a bit ago...

Why would an investigation based on facts be "phony baloney"?

Isn't it that investigations not based on facts are the phony baloney? Yes.

It seems to me they're still looking for facts to support the allegation that led to the investigation.

I guess they haven't found any supporting facts yet, or maybe they are just secrete facts for national security reasons or something.

Or maybe the whole thing was a fishing expedition to begin with... It could be that someone high up in the DOJ just happened to think "I bet when The Donald was a crony, he was into illegal things like cronies always are! We should find some excuse to investigate and find the facts about them. It will give us power over him."

Why nobody but me thought of this during the campaign I can't guess.

It's phony baloney because Trump or his campaign talking to foreigners about how to win an American election was never a crime.  If it was unethical, the dems would be the last people to call Trump on it since Obama refused federal campaign funds so he could list his campaign contributors as "foreign contributors" instead of naming them and his campaign was still fined by the FEC for illegally laundering foreign money.

Everyone knew that during the campaign, Jeff.  You should get out more.

You said there was evidence of a crime that justified the "phony baloney" investigation, that the investigation was begun based on known facts. Kiss

So, you can find lots of media articles etc. talking about Trump's taxes and business dealings that were published/aired during the campaign? I can't.

Who else knew besides me? Where/when did they air their opinions and reveal the facts?

Was it during the debates?

Jeff, I will now establish a new rule.  From now on whenever you make up a false fact to avoid losing an argument, instead of wasting time deconstructing your false fact, I'm just going to end the conversation.  I'm not talking about a legitimate disagreement, I'm talking when you deliberately say something you know to be a lie, just to derail the debate. 

It will work like this:

Lie.

Conversation over.

From your first reply, #2 on this thread-

"*SIGH*
