    Congressman Eric SwallowsWell

    Quit your sniveling bitch.
  4. Lock her up! She's off her meds! Run!
  5. So if they were investigating a non crime can the investigation even be affected by obstruction of JUSTICE? If it were not a crime then obstructing the investigation seems like the right thing to do.
  6. The NYSlimes? are you serious after years of lies and innuendo you would still use a link off their site! Ha Ha Ha tooooooo stupid!
  7. I like the chick, she's the best!
  8. Take your meds MM, try to maintain above a Chernobyl level meltdown. I am going to get a lot of laughs once again antagonizing the irrational.
  9. Actually the report is a success, Mueller got to the bottom of Russian collusion and now it's Obama Hillary time!
  10. Actions only happen if they are taken. Sure why wouldn't he want Mueller gone, there was no collusion therefore no obstruction. No wonder Trump was so pissed! He kept his cool all this time while you dupes ran your heads like retards on bath salts.

  12. There is no proof the govt. of Iran was behind the Beirut barracks bombing. And if you think a president is responsible for erecting concrete barriers at a Marine barracks you are nuts. WTF were the Marines doing? Playing poker? Though this was not the first suicide truck bombing it was certainly early on in the use of this weapon. Reagans crime of arming our enemy? Are you referring to the anti tank weapons Oliver North sold to the Iranians to shoot Iraqi tanks with? The money used to stop the Cubans from taking over Nicaraugua, those weapons? The official justification for the arms shipments was that they were part of an operation to free seven American hostages being held in Lebanon by Hezbollah, a paramilitary group with Iranian ties connected to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The plan was for Israel to ship weapons to Iran, for the United States to resupply Israel, and for Israel to pay the United States. The Iranian recipients promised to do everything in their power to achieve the release of the hostages.[5][6] However, as documented by a congressional investigation, the first Reagan-sponsored secret arms sales to Iran began in 1981 before any of the American hostages had been taken in Lebanon. This fact ruled out the "arms for hostages" explanation by which the Reagan administration sought to excuse its behavior.[7] The plan was later complicated in late 1985, when Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North of the National Security Council diverted a portion of the proceeds from the Iranian weapon sales to fund the Contras, a group of anti-Sandinista rebel fighters, in their struggle against the socialist government of Nicaragua.[5] While President Ronald Reagan was a vocal supporter of the Contra cause,[8] the evidence is disputed as to whether he personally authorized the diversion of funds to the Contras.[5][6][9] Handwritten notes taken by Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger on 7 December 1985 indicate that Reagan was aware of potential hostage transfers with Iran, as well as the sale of Hawk and TOW missiles to "moderate elements" within that country.[10] Weinberger wrote that Reagan said "he could answer to charges of illegality but couldn't answer to the charge that 'big strong President Reagan passed up a chance to free the hostages.'"[10] After the weapon sales were revealed in November 1986, Reagan appeared on national television and stated that the weapons transfers had indeed occurred, but that the United States did not trade arms for hostages.[11] The investigation was impeded when large volumes of documents relating to the affair were destroyed or withheld from investigators by Reagan administration officials.[12] On 4 March 1987, Reagan made a further nationally televised address, taking full responsibility for the affair and stating that "what began as a strategic opening to Iran deteriorated, in its implementation, into trading arms for hostages".[13] The affair was investigated by the U.S. Congress and by the three-person, Reagan-appointed Tower Commission. Neither investigation found evidence that President Reagan himself knew of the extent of the multiple programs.[5][6][9] In the end, fourteen administration officials were indicted, including then-Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger. Eleven convictions resulted, some of which were vacated on appeal.[14] The rest of those indicted or convicted were all pardoned in the final days of the presidency of George H. W. Bush, who had been Vice President at the time of the affair.
