        I'd like to observe opinions on why this is a good move for Trump to make.

        Besides the obligatory "Because he can."

        Thanks in advance.

        he just had immigration guys raid Koch Foods. I wondered if it was a Koch brothers. Instead it is run a big Chicagoland Democratic donor, perhaps the biggest.

        Who knows what he's doing.

        Perhaps he's really striking back at Obama. You might blame Hillary all you want, but Obama was the one who signed off on all the fake fisa affidavits and all the plans to unmask people in leak that information to two dozen agencies.

        Does this irritate Obama in some way? I don't know.

        Both coincidences is? I don't know.

          Are you saying that Trump is weaponizing certain government agencies for political purposes?

              I don't see any political reason as to why Trump would pull this move.

              And for some of us who follow American politics, the same can be said regarding a plethora of instances during his administration.

              That said, I will vote for him over any of the loons running for the Democratic nomination.

                Bait and switch...it's a new talking point....something to move the media away from the current sticking point...
                The Dems and media take the fresh bait he throws them and then he gets something done while their not paying attention. Botht the Dems and media are so dumb they focus their attention on garbage instead of following the function and workings of the Pres. office.

                  Hard to be claiming you're draining the swamp when your thinking about letting a swamp creature out of the zoo so he can return to the swamp..... Personally, I'd like to see Blago do every day of his sentence.

                    In other words, a Republican could do just about anything, and you'd still vote for him over a Democrat.

                    No. Not anything. For example, if any Republican did any of the following I would probably never vote for him/her...

                    Cheer and celebrate the ability for women to kill healthy full term babies. Wants vile serial killers to be able to vote. Claims America was never a great country. Demonizes ICE for enforcing laws. Demonizes people who are successful at starting businesses that employ tens of millions and drive the economy by smugly declaring "they didn't build that". Wants illegals to have the ability to vote. Wants illegals to have free healthcare at taxpayer expense. Doesn't want borders or national sovereignty. Wants to nationalize private companies. Wants a tax rate of 70%. Wants a Green Deal program that will not only bankrupt the US but will make it vulnerable to other powers that wish us harm. Wants to stifle free speech through laws disguised as "hate speech" laws. Wants there to be no genders. Believes that "white men" are "toxic". Uses "racism" as a cudgel in attempts to stifle debate. Wants to take over healthcare and make it a government run system that would cost trillions and balloon the debt like nothing seen before. Spends another 1.6 trillion paying off student loans screwing over all those who paid off their own loans and adding more to the debt. Wants to pay "reparations" to black people for being black. Wants to pay "reparations" to gay people for being gay.

                      You left out the part about creating an elaborate story that falsely accuses the President of treason and being a Russian agent spending probably 50 million dollars in an unprecedented effort to overthrow a US election. This will make a great movie one day.

                        If it's made into a movie it sure won't be made in Hollywood.

                          This is just stupid. Half of these are straw men supported by nobody, and the other half mainly the fringes.

                          But you've rationalized by your ridiculous characterization that a republican can do just about anything and still get your vote.

                          I used to think you were at least worth a good conversation but looking at this list you've made it clear you are as looney as the rest of them.

                          5..4..3..2..1....

                            Every one of those things has been proposed, supported or said be at least one of the top Democratic Presidential candidates. You seem to be the one with your head in the sand. The entire Democratic Party is now "fringe". You'll vote for a looney for President and so will I. At least I'm honest about it.
