Donald Trump Jr could have inadvertently confirmed the Trump/Comey conversation

(Or he could be trying to say "even if it did happen, what's the big deal"

Chaffetz to announce early departure from Congress

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) is expected to announce Thursday that he is resigning before the end of this congressional term, according to three sources familiar with his plans.

Chaffetz did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday evening or Thursday morning. Multiple sources say he will leave Congress on June 30.

Chaffetz, 50, is chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, the top investigative body in the chamber. He recently subpoenaed James Comey's memos, and invited the fired FBI director to testify next week before his panel.

So does that mean Chaffetz is supposedly resigning from the committee as well, or just distancing himself from Congress?

Can't imagine why unless he's being forced out, akin to Comey, which is the most suspicious move possible for Trump et al.

Whaaaaat? Is the US now at war with Syria? Or are they using that 'temporary combat zone' deal to avoid such things?

Anyone who has Hannity as their main source of news will be amazed if Trump get impeached as they'll have zero idea why other than it being some kind of liberal plot.
The guys just a complete joke.

It is so hard to see the wood from the trees at the moment. There was another blatant example of lying and misdirection by Trump yesterday and yet it barely registers anymore.



So initially it was Rosenstein.
Then Trump said it was all him.
Yesterday Trump said it was Rosenstein.
But at the exact same time, Rosenstein said it was Trump. :fp:

Good Politico article about how Comey and Mueller, and how Trump has got 2 of the very best guys coming after him:
http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/05/18/james-comey-trump-special-prosecutor-robert-mueller-fbi-215154?lo=ap_c1
It is as if, after having an unrelated disagreement over movie trivia in a bar, Trump has challenged Usain Bolt to a 100-yard dash or John Cena to a cage match to the death.

But he's going to bring peace to the Middle East as he has said it wasn't that hard.
I have a feeling he's going to suggest that everyone blame everything on Hillary Clinton so that they all have a common enemy and become fast friends and forget about the last thousand or so years.

Goodbye net neutrality.

The US Federal Communications Commission has voted to overturn rules that force ISPs to treat all data traffic as equal.

Commissioners at the agency voted two-to-one to end a "net neutrality" order enacted in 2015.

Ajit Pai, head of the FCC, said the rules demanding an open internet harmed jobs and discouraged investment.

Many Americans and technology firms filed objections to the FCC's proposal prior to the vote.

"This is the right way to go," said Mr Pai ahead of the vote on Thursday.

In a statement, the FCC said it expected its proposed changes to "substantially benefit consumers and the marketplace". It added that, before the rules were changed in 2015, they helped to preserve a "flourishing free and open internet for almost 20 years".

The vote by the FCC commissioners is the first stage in the process of dismantling the net neutrality regulations.

The agency is now inviting public comment on whether it should indeed dismantle the rules. Americans have until mid-August to share their views with the FCC.

This call for comments is likely to attract a huge number of responses. Prior to the vote, more than 1 million statements supporting net neutrality were filed on the FCC site.

Many people responded to a call from comedian and commentator John Oliver to make their feelings known.

Separately, some protestors also used software bots to repeatedly file statements on the site.

Many fear that once the equal access rules go, ISPs will start blocking and throttling some data while letting other packets travel on "fast lanes" because firms have paid more to reach customers quicker.

US ISPs such as Comcast, Charter Communications and Altice NV have pledged in public statements to keep data flowing freely.

Despite this public pledge Comcast, along with Verizon and AT&T, opposed the original 2015 rule change saying it dented their enthusiasm for improving US broadband.

Facebook, and Google's parent company Alphabet as well as many other net firms have backed the open net rules saying equal access was important for all.

He did.

Now he is working on getting rid of some other groups that people have told him about. First up is Daesh, then he will destroy IS before moving onto the eradication of Islamic State. If he still has any time left, he will then get rid of ISIL.
