Spicer arguing that "no evidence yet of Russia collusion" is somehow the highlight of the hearing today, even thought they are in the infancy of the announced investigation. Yet he still defends POTUS wiretapping claim even though no supporting evidence has been provided from FBI or Justice Dept. Complains that people keep coming to the same conclusion on Russian collusion, and we should accept it as fact, but somehow forgets that so far all agencies involved come to the same conclusion about POTUS wiretapping claim. drymounting ridiculous. :roll:

Also says Manafort had very little role in Trump campaign. Gets all pissy with reporter who chimes in "He was the Campaign Manager". Also lies and says Manafort joined the team in June 2016, yet the campaign itself announced Manafort as campaign manager in March...

President and Press Secretary fudge on news outlets, then later use them as their only source for "wiretapping", and now that outlet, Fox, will not back their original story. Kind of ironic. In the end, this was simply a decoy attempt by the bozo in charge, to take the light off of the criminal offenses created by himself, his campaign members, and Senator Sessions. I smell a dumpster fire a brewing.

That was the headline on Fox News earlier: "NO COLLUSION" in quotes. It still is right now, in fact! When...

A) Those were Spicer's words, not Comey's, and...

B) They weren't even Spicer's words, as he was (intentionally) misquoting Senator Christopher Coons, who released a clarification:

"Though I have not seen specific evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, there is quite a bit of circumstantial evidence that suggests collusion may have occurred, including confirmation just this morning that the FBI is investigating potential collusion between the campaign and Russian officials."

Translated: there's every reason for an investigation and smart people don't start talking about guilt until due process runs it course.

I tried this approach last week and was told that this is only a place for Gorkie's memes. :pint:

Same process went forward for Hilary. That ended with no charges. Same fudge could happen here. Let the FBI do their thing and laugh at the trump administration trying to deflect in the meantime.

I have been hopeful too many times and proceeded to be let down by our system. I hope you are right. I just don't have as much confidence in the people running the show as you do.
