    Oops - forgot about the surveillance.

    You may not be hearing from me for a while...
    Do I think the President should have thought it through and probably not tweeted it, maybe. Do I think the President based the tweet on some actual evidence, absolutely.

    Hopefully time will tell.

    I've read also that a British agent was contracted out to do the surveillance on Trump. I guess so no one in the US Government could be traced with the orders.

    What did everyone think of Snoop Dog video of him assassinating Trump? Would the media be outraged if a white guy did a video of him assassinating Obama.

    I know it is his artistic right but I didn't like it at all. I definitely downgraded Snoop and I like the guy.

    All I know is if I was in charge and these leaks and illegal acts were taking place I would have an Army of Federal Investigators working on the investigation and anyone involved would never see the light of day again.

I think she may be watching games from wherever she can afford tickets after this go-around...and quite frankly, I think she'll be hard pressed to find any groups of liberal-leaning fans in Rupp. The student section was probably her best bet at that.
    Her seats aren't in the student section.

    I agree, I thought she typically sits about 6-8 rows from the floor, just to the side of the team bench.

    I am not so sure there is any evidence. I think Trump tweets whatever he wants to. I am good with his tweets if he is more ppresdential. We are now going to spend an untold amount of time and energy investigating this wiretapping thing. If there is no substance to it, what a waste of time and distraction his own agenda.

    The second part of this, the Republicans who are not fans of Trump now have something to try and discredit him with. Lindsey Graham, McCain, et al are relishing the opportunity to stick it to Trump on this.

    I think there is evidence because of the stuff that was said that was leaked.
    How else would it get out.

    If there was NO evidence I don't think he would tweet it so we definitely disagree on this one.

    There is no way Trump just makes something like this up and tweets it. He probably looking back wishes he never tweeted it, but he just did not come out of the blue on this.

    Agree

    And I am glad he did tweet it because many things Trump is doing have brought attention to what I believe is corruption in our system.

    And was it illegal to share this information?

    If I get your tax return when you dont want me to have it, being its a federal document thats your property, and publicly release it, I would guess I have broken some type of law. If its not a felony it needs to be.
