Give it time. Yet another comparison to other scandals...this one is long from over. Subpoenas will be issued to about half a dozen people tomorrow.

Never said I was ok with any of it. I think I said there should even be charges filed when it's determined who was behind the order.

Now, should James Clapper be charged? Or is the whole NSA thing not 'abuse' either?

Flesh it out for me. What (other than D vs R) constitutes "abuse" in your eminently flexible definition?

Hillaryís 2016 lead grows after ĎBridgegateí

Hillary Clintonís 2016 lead has grown over the last month when pitted against the scandal-burdened Chris Christie in a new poll.

The former Secretary of State leads with 50% of the vote, compared to the New Jersey governor, who earned just 37% of the vote in the NBC News/Marist poll.

CNN reporting that there will be up to 20 subpoenas issued initially. Considering you have three investigative committees and basically every major media outlet digging for news on this, if there's news out there, it will come out. It's only a matter of time.

Turned out that that IRS went after liberals as well, obamacare has over 2 million enrollments.
It was all trumped up bogus scandals. Hence why the media eventually stopped covering them.
I guess you never got the memo

It's funny that rethugs always want to accuse Obama of the very thing they are always guilty of. Cronyism.

Whatever they need to do to get people's minds off the mess Obama and his admin. have created. Ok, wow, now they boast they have over 2 million signed up for Obamacare. Oops, only 11% of those were those that didn't have insurance before. The rest of the 89% signed up because they lost their insurance because of Obamacare. But, but, the traffic in New Jersey is more important Already the liberals are getting their Hillary pom poms out. What sheep.

How so? There was no grand cover up with Benghazi and the IRS went after both liberal and conservative groups.

Benghazi is the continuation of arms sales, that is what is really going on, and that's what is being covered up. Irs scandal is the abuse of power to punish opposition: which reminds me of operation condor when you start looking at the pressure vs journalists and whistle blowers.

Jc,arm sales?

The " abuse of power to punish the opposition" never happened,hence the reason it was never a real scandal.

Looks as if you're seeing things that just are not there.

Anyone else see that interview from Hoboken's Mayor Dawn Zimmer last night on CNN.
I've changed my mind on Christie. What a POS this guy is.

He sure did milk that Superstorm Sandy to perfection. Using relief money to run his own political ads while holding back money from small towns that need water pumps in order to strong arm and push through building projects for the Rockefeller Group.

This guy is just another Jersy style Politician.

If you approach the sphere of politics, as organized criminals - working to protect their power and markets it becomes so much easier to see.

David Wildstein claims Christie knew about the closings.

Yeah I think it's safe to say that even if he's completely innocent (which is looking increasingly unlikely), his time on the national political stage is over. Depending on what comes out, he still may be facing criminal charges, as Hoboken was just subpoenaed with regard to the Sandy funds.

It's unfortunate, because as I've said on here before, I was hoping for a debate in 2016 between two people who are not completely off the map as far as their political views. Now we're probably going to get stuck with watching Clinton dismantle whoever the Republicans can find to charge those guns.
