How many of you are waiting for the nothing burger for Hunter Biden for some comedy on TV?

Personally, I see this going the way Clinton went. . .we go from "investigating" a property deal to investigating the denial of a blowjob.

This time, we'll go from “investigating" a laptop to "investigating" a drug habit and making PJB look bad for not disowning his son for it. It will be called "Daddygate" by the "liberal" media and every carnival barking head on TV will either insinuate or flat out scream for Biden to resign “for the good of the nation."

Again, people like Donnie Dumbass can do whatever he likes and no one cares about the "good of the nation." Imply that a Democrat had a bad hair day or wore an off color suit and SCANDAL!!!!

Republicans learned their lessons with Clinton and later, Bengazi.

They will manufacture false documents, films, witnesses, etc. to use to taint Hunter Biden. They will not come empty-handed.

Crazy as he is, he does have a following and he has been good at offering a lot but having nothing. Which is usually all it takes to convince some right wing loons to fall for the hype that has nothing behind it. Then there will be the 'strong arm' techniques that they will use to try and intimidate us into letting them continue to lie to the public.

was $7.8 million over two and a half years.

To use the recent Durham investigation & report as the nothing burger standard takes the cost of down to $3.8 million.

Both nothing burger failures cost taxpayers, but cost nothing compared to the corporate bought theater government that takes away life, liberty and property of humans captured inside the "theater of the republic."

But I would remind you that we lost the presidency in 2000 after Clinton and 2016 after Bengazi.

Both of those elections were extremely winnable coming off of popular presidents with good economies.

It is bullshit but sadly it works.

I'm just grateful they're on the Kool-Aid themselves and not more competent, though.

It's the others.

Just saw on Morning Joe the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committe, Mike Turner, blandly running interference for tRump's plan to run for reelection and win by terminating the Constitution, i.e., another coup. It's one of a "1000 statements" with which he "vehemently disagrees," but "there's a process" and the voters will decide.

are sick of these circus', especially ones that are widely open to interpretation and questionably documented.

We are lucky, in a sense, that J6 was so well documented visually. It is impossible to deny that it happened, and it is fairly immune to reinterpretation (though people have certainly tried).
