Cole added, "I think the executive branch has a right to [say] whether it's legitimate or not. And I think it's very hard with a straight face to argue that what we're seeing now is legitimate oversight and legitimate investigation."

Cole is correct. The efforts of House Dem's and the media is purely political, vengeful, spiteful, and driven by Trump hate.

They're so desperate they'll grasp for anything. What a travesty.

Is that what you want to discuss? The same type of black bag gun-running operation that your party railed against Reagan for?

This one destroyed Libya, failed in helping the situation in Syria, and got a handful of people killed.

Not exactly Obama's or Hillary's shining moment. Go ahead and crow about the success of Benghazi. I'd like to hear it, asshat.

Reagan's gun-running was illegal and explicitly violated not just the law but an entire branch of government.
So no. Not the same type of gun-running.

Oh, I see. So the American people approved Obama and Hillary's gun-running operation.

Why the video cover story then? Why not just say, "our gun running op got attacked"?

LOL

Now do Holders gun running op.

That's not even a sensible comment.
But this one is:
Reagan negotiated with the terrorist Ayatollah Khomeini and traded arms for hostages.

"Unsettled?"

These are the same morons who brought up the Constitution every other breath while Obama was in office.

Today's Republicans are a bunch of lawless, sycophantic hypocrites!

They should hand out Wet Wipes in the GOP cloakroom so they can wipe Trump's feces off their noses.

I think it's been obvious from the beginning (or even before) that the Democrats wanted to impeach Trump. I don't know how that can be denied.

But it was Trump who gave Dems the impetus to prove that everything they believed ~ whether political or otherwise ~ was spot on.

As Trump now finds himself in the 'Hail Mary' stage of his time in office, he has only himself and his abject stupidity to blame.

Yeah they're unsettled. But they still won't do anything about it.

Fat Nixon is setting the bar for just how lawless and corrupt an administration can be really low. When a democrat wins the presidency they will go back to caring about it.

Blah Blah Blah.... While Republicans were in power (The last 4 Congress) they reserved the right to investigate any matter.

Then there is this....

"It is not the court's role to decipher whether Congress's true purpose in pursuing an investigation is to aid legislation or something more sinister such as exacting political retribution,"

"It is simply not fathomable that a Constitution that grants Congress the power to remove a president for reasons including criminal behavior would deny Congress the power to investigate him for unlawful conduct -- past or present -- even without formally opening an impeachment inquiry,"

---U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta
