Yes, so far it looks like he hasn’t done much to make himself welcome in the UK!

The sooner they #buildthewall to keep illegals like this out the better:

Shame they didn’t build the wall in 1491 I guess.

It will be interesting to see what the memo actually says, and to see what people who know what they're talking about (i.e. not people refreshing Reddit and 4chan all night looking for the latest conspiracy theory) say about it.

It's possible - just possible - that the FBI genuinely were biased against Trump, and if they were, they should be held to account for it.

If they weren't, however, and it becomes clear that this is an attempt by the President to undermine his own federal law enforcement, it might finally make his position untenable.

Needless to say it has broken the internet.

Still waiting for it to load...

I read it. I can't work out what the big deal is. As far as I can tell, the bombshell is that someone who doesn't like Trump doesn't like Trump. That's hardly groundbreaking news!

Roger, thanks for posting the link. I read it, too. On Fox they are claiming the warrant would not have been granted without the Steele Dossier. But, there were 3 previous FISA warrants that were renewed!

Can I make a suggestion? Keep one specifically for N.A? Which is nothing else lately than a Trump thread as of now.

Maybe a Canadian thread would be more appropriate if the president of the largest North American country is considered off-topic?

Gee, I made a suggestion just like fd did about things. ;)
I'm not saying the Trump talk is off topic. There's plenty of it, that's what I'm saying.

One thread for all news will suffice.
