These aren’t the droids you’re looking for…. all 33,000 of them.

By Patrick Van Roy On October 9th, 2020

President Trump said this week that he had declassified documents from the investigation into Clinton’s use of the private server for e-mail during her tenure as secretary of state, America’s top diplomat. There are reportedly as many as 33,000 e-mails from Clinton’s private server that haven’t been released publicly.

  1. I have no love for Hillary, or for what she did with her server.

    I will be happy if they release her emails.

    But focusing on stuff like this on October 9, when the election is November 3, isn’t exactly smart.

    Are you trying to lose? The voters that you need to flip put this as No. 10,000 on their list of top 10,000 things to worry about.

  2. Phantom, Exactly. This is no time to fight the last war. How is this supposed to defeat Biden?

  3. and how does this hurt Trump……

    You have been convinced that these issues have all just gone away, and nobody cares….. lmao

  4. Yawn, desperate barrel-scraping by GOP.

    They obviously believe that the polls are correct (Biden 10% ahead including in swing states) and that re-running the fight against Clinton four years ago will somehow snatch victory, or at least a close defeat which they fully expect will be overturned by SCOTUS.

    The NYT has been drip-feeding its hack of Trump’s tax returns just like Putin-Wikileaks drip-fed the Russian DNC hack in 2016. Watch out Trumpy! There’s more where that came from!!!

  5. I don’t even think it is trying to snatch victory. I think it is all about heaping as much shit on the table, leaving it for the next guy to clean up, and then complaining about the state of the country when Biden is in office.

  6. He ran a smart campaign four years ago, stealing an election he should have lost by means of hustle and desire.

    This campaign is just stupid. It’s a lot worse than the one that Hillary swanned through in 2016.

  7. Here’s today’s helping from the NYT. Nothing to see here, please move along:

    “Tax records expose more than $21 million in highly unusual payments from the Las Vegas hotel Donald Trump owns with Phil Ruffin, routed through other Trump companies and paid out in cash…

    And in early 2016, Deutsche Bank, the last big lender still doing business with him, unexpectedly turned down his request for a loan. The funds, Mr. Trump had told his bankers, would help shore up his Turnberry golf resort in Scotland. Some bankers feared the money would instead be diverted to his campaign…

    And the president’s long-hidden tax records, obtained by The New York Times, also reveal this: how he engineered a sudden financial windfall — more than $21 million in what experts describe as highly unusual one-off payments from the Las Vegas hotel he owns with his friend the casino mogul Phil Ruffin…”

  8. It’s not that this stuff doesn’t matter, but Trump has to win the damned election first. If he wins, prosecute. If he loses, Hilary is off scot free.

  9. Phantom, Charles –

    It’s a base thing. It’s getting the base riled up so every one of them votes. That, and well screw Hillary.

    Flipping voters is a different thing requiring different tactics. Trump’s campaign has been less impressive there compared to 2016.

  10. As mentioned on TV this morning, he wants to prosecute both this year’s Democratic candidate for president and the 2016 Democratic candidate.

    This is pure banana republic stuff.

    He doesn’t have the slightest idea what he’s doing about anything.

  11. Here’s today’s helping from the NYT.

    Tell us again about the Russians. Come on, the NYT? Comic central.

  12. I think that the GOP base is fired up already.

    Patrick will walk over broken glass barefoot to vote, so will Charles.

    But the GOP base is not a majority in this country, not even close.

    They need to reach out, and they’ve not done that in any effective way at all.

  13. “Your vote is your most tangible connection to the idea of democratic government. It’s the only form of political power most Americans possess. It’s proof that government of, by, and for the people hasn’t yet perished from the Earth. Your vote is personal. For a president to throw it out would be an audacious undertaking. Trump keeps promising to try. Every time he talks about “massive fraud” and sending the election to a Supreme Court with a conservative majority, he’s preparing you to have your vote taken away—to make that shocking prospect a little more normal, even inevitable. Each new controversy, each norm broken, each authoritarian pose makes Trump’s intention to nullify the election results clear…

    Attorney General William Barr rescinded Justice Department rules in order to be able to investigate supposed vote fraud just before an election. Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe released tricked-up evidence of a Barack Obama–Joe Biden–Hillary Clinton conspiracy against the Trump campaign in 2016. Trump expressed annoyance with both Barr and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for taking too long to produce more “evidence” that could undermine Biden in the election’s final days. When the FBI broke up a plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer by right-wing extremists of the kind the president won’t renounce, Trump hurled insults at their intended target…”

  14. Tell us again about the Russians.

    Sure Pete

    The Russians hacked Hillary’s emails in 2016, but you knew that. This week Putin has made clear who he wants to win and RT has been at its lying propagandist best, cheering for Trump and attacking the Dems every chance it gets. Its coverage is just as biased as Fox and just as big a laugh.

  15. Y’all know I’ve stated from jump street – Comey laid out the laundry list of Hillary’s crimes, all of the specific details, all of the many instances (in just the limited scope of his probe) of her violating the law, and then said – BFD & Pluck You America, she walks. Justice?

    and her emails weren’t hacked the spy (Assange) said so himself…. you believe everything the scumbag say’s….. except that….

  16. Why would anyone believe Russian agent Assange

  17. Peter

    That’s rich. And the rest of the world media is not in the tank for Biden??

  18. Charles

    My grandfather had a saying: Tell me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.

    Trump’s friends are Putin in Russia, Bolsonaro in Brazil and a few other authoritarian rulers like the guys in the Phillipines and Poland and Hungary. And that’s because Trump has lavished praise on them and constantly attacked and sneered at the democratic leaders of US allies. I’m guessing that most GOP voters aren’t comfortable with that, but maybe I’m wrong.

  19. Peter, Your grandfather sounds like a wise man!

    On another subject. (IT won’t sound like I’m a republican, but oh well) Why is Trump using the Department of State and it’s Secretary as an arm of his campaign? Isn’t that what we accuse the Dems of doing? It’s civil servants who are compiling all this data on the Clinton e-mails, and they’re supposed to be apolitical by law. Just saying.

    you’re wrong

    Trump has shown repeatedly in the last four years that he has no respect for the constitution or the rule of law, never mind the conventions. Using the White House as a prop at the GOP conference last month wasn’t illegal, but no other president had done it. Just as no other president has made it clear that he will not accept the result of the election if he loses. Democratic norms are treated with contempt by this man.

  22. Trump’s friends are Putin in Russia

    Strange that, because President Trump has consistently sanctioned Putin’s circle while kicking out scores of his diplomats (spies). While that was going on Putin’s best friend was making a multi-millionaire of Biden’s son. Not that they need it because he was also lavished with Chinese communist cash.

    Really strange.

  23. you’re wrong

    Really Patrick? Please elaborate, because the last time I looked each one of those leaders is a 100% fan of Trump, Putin most of all.

    Don’t you think it’s strange that Trump has not said a single bad word about Putin in four years? Even the Navalny poisoning in August has not produced a word of condemnation. Maybe Trump believes Putin when he says that’s it’s all a sham, Navalny was not poisoned, or if he was it must have been the Germans – see Trumpist RT for this and at least a dozen other Navalny “theories”.

  24. Using the White House as a prop at the GOP conference last month wasn’t illegal, but no other president had done it. Just as no other president has made it clear that he will not accept the result of the election if he loses.

    The White House will have to be thoroughly disinfected when he leaves. If he does.

    I can’t even imagine him sitting peacefully at a Biden inauguration. He can’t be man enough to admit that the country has rejected him electorally, and in the popular vote.

  25. Strange that, because President Trump has consistently sanctioned Putin’s circle

    See my 11.04 Pete. Trump sat beside Putin in Iceland and made it clear that he took Putin’s side against his own security services. Bolton has called that “treasonous” and it’s hard to disagree, but no doubt you’re with Trump on that one, as always.

  26. Peter they aren’t friends….. you’re a moron….

    and please provide a list of these……

    Trump has shown repeatedly in the last four years that he has no respect for the constitution or the rule of law,

    list of how please…. I’ll hold my laughter until you provide it.

  27. Peter’s smoking something……

  28. I can’t even imagine him sitting peacefully at a Biden inauguration. He can’t be man enough to admit that the country has rejected him electorally, and in the popular vote.

    There’s not a chance that Tump will appear at Biden’s inauguration. But for that to happen Biden will have to win really big so that a SCOTUS challenge will have no credibility when it’s launched, as it will be for sure. Because these guys don’t accept that the rules apply to them, we’ve seen that loads of times since 2016.

  29. Peter’s smoking something……

    Great response Patrick, you win.

  30. Trump’s friends are Putin in Russia

    Oh boy, how wrong can someone be?:

    https://www.newsweek.com/vladimir-putin-says-wants-work-joe-biden-claims-shared-values-between-democrats-communism-1537501

    “Putin Says He Wants to Work With Biden, Claims ‘Shared Values’ Between Democrats and Communism”

    Well obvs.

  31. In all, as a Brookings Institute analysis revealed, the Trump administration has enacted more than 50 sanctions or policy actions on Russia, many being severe, from May 15, 2017 – four months after Trump took office – to the present day. But the Left would much prefer that you remain ignorant about these.

    https://www.brookings.edu/blog/order-from-chaos/2018/09/25/on-the-record-the-u-s-administrations-actions-on-russia/

    never let facts get in the way right Peter?

  32. Peter I can beat on you for just fun, but it’s even easier to do with facts.

  33. Pat you’re definitely beating something off , rumour has it its the bishop 😉

  34. stop telling us what your doing Kurt….. some images we don’t want to imagine…..

  35. only two things are interesting about the election now

    1) will Biden win Texas ?
    2) will Biden get the magic 400+ EC votes

    the rest really is just “chokin the chicken” 🙂

  36. so your fantasy world doesn’t just concern your Bishop……

  37. Peter I can beat on you for just fun, but it’s even easier to do with facts.

    LOL Patrick, try these facts:

    1. Putin helped Trump to win in 2016, source is US intelligence agencies which confirm that the DNC email hack came from Russia, never mind the thousands of Russian bots on Facebook supporting Trump, eg that the Pope had endorsed the pussy-grabber.

    2. Putin is trying to get Trump a second term, source is US intelligence agencies.

    3. Trump has never said a bad word about Putin in four years, in many thousands of tweets and hundreds of speeches, fact. He has attacked dozens of world leaders, but not Putin, not even once. Over to you to prove otherwise (not holding my breath).

    4. Putin’s mouthpiece RT is busting a gut to get Trump a second term, it’s as big a fan as Fox, check it out.

  38. Pete Moore

    You need to get over your Trump groupie syndrome, it’s nearly as embarassing as your Putin groupie syndrome. And yes, I get that they are connected.

  39. LOL Patrick, try these facts:

    1. Putin helped Trump to win in 2016, source is US intelligence agencies which confirm that the DNC email hack came from Russia, never mind the thousands of Russian bots on Facebook supporting Trump, eg that the Pope had endorsed the pussy-grabber.

    Not even the crackheads in the US believe any of this bull, but they’ve sold you hook line and sinker…

    Peter Hillary Clinton broke Federal Law… a lot of them, Obama used the DOJ/FBI to bury it. While they were burying it Obama/FBI/DOJ/NSA/CIA joined with the Clintons plan to first discredit Trump with the fake Russian story, and then after she lost turned it into Treason and continued it into the first 4 years of the Trump Presidency.

    We already have one Guilty Plea from the FBI Lawyer who Lied under Oath and Falsified Evidence to get the 4 FISA Warrants.

    Now you can continue along with the rest of the wacpac that inhabits these pages that it’s all an imaginary conspiracy calling Trump a Criminal and a Liar with zero evidence in spite of a 50 million dollar investigation all you want, but I’m going to print and post the facts that the evidence proves…..

    The bonus is I get to rub it in all your faces.

  40. lol so no actual challenges on my predictions
    what’s yours pat and petem ? EC votes
    just for fun , won’t rub it in your faces !

  41. actually pat for once you’re correct
    the quick release of the hilary emails is definitely going to effect the clinton campaign

  42. At this stage Trump is desperate and more than slightly unhinged by a cocktail of drugs and his innate madness.

    This measure won’t help him, but he could try something more drastic; some mad conspiracy, finally start the war some of his base have been craving for.
    Another significant boost would be if the Saudis now recognise Israel. No doubt Trump and Jared will be making phone calls like blazes just to get that statement out before November.

  43. Apparently turnips October surprise is … 2016

  44. “ Lock her up “

    What a stroke of genius

  45. they simply cannot attack Biden and make any headway

    he’s clean, moral, strong, a decent guy , his gettysburg speech was the finest I’ve ever heard

    Battle for the Soul of the Nation

    all they got is attacking Clinton, trying a re-run of 2016

    hey we wanna forget the last 4 years too by the way, but for a different reason 😉
    ( blinder that kurt !)
