    The time for the fight is later when the pressure is on not now when it will go nowhere.

    The timing isn't really the issue here...

    I think you are jumping the gun as are the media types that are getting the vapors over this.

    Fair enough, we’ll see what happens I guess.

    Wasn't Kaine up by almost 20 points in the last round of polling?

    Yes but since Kaine was Hil's running mate, there's really no difference between him and Corey Stewart, so BSABSVR!

    Correct. Kaine can't be called a Democrat.

    Kaine's opponent will win everything but the cities and Northern Virginia and thus lose 57-43.

    20 points is the swing we're seeing in most elections since Trump became president so it wouldn't shock me.

    If Kaine were a Democrat he'd probably lose.

    Almost like the cities and Northern Virginia are where the people are. Cows don't vote.

    Ladies and Gentlemen. I present to you, the Republican Party.

    So what do you think of this Cohen story? I queried. “Zero,” Rohrabacher replied. I waited for more. “It’s a big zero,” he said.

    If Cohen’s account is accurate, I asked, doesn’t this show Trump colluded with a Putin-ordered operation to attack a US election? How is that nothing? “There’s not a person in this town who would not take a meeting to get material like that,” Rohrabacher shot back. He suggested he would.

    What's more, the Washington Post reported last week that a Clinton campaign lawyer, Marc Elias, paid the opposition research firm Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Trump. Some of that information came from Russian officials speaking to a former British spy, Christopher Steele.

    So, Trump supporters would seem justified in asking, why is it permissible for Russians to help Democrats and not permissible for Russians to help Republicans?

    There are two answers here. The first is obvious. The Russians tried to sow chaos in the election by trolling both the left and the right on social media with fake news. But when Russian hackers distributed stolen emails on the internet, they came from only one party: the Democrats. If Mueller finds evidence that this was coordinated with Trump or his associates, it would be like finding out G. Gordon Liddy subcontracted the Watergate burglary to the KGB.

    The other answer is more subtle. Adav Noti, who served as a Federal Election Commission lawyer between 2007 and 2017, told me that all of this goes back to the ban on contributions and donations from foreign governments or foreign nationals in federal elections. The law has been on the books since the 1970s, and he said it applies to promises of deleted emails and other kinds of opposition research.

    "There is a real meaningful distinction," said Noti, who is now senior director of the Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan group that monitors election law. "The Clinton campaign, based on what has been reported, paid for opposition research, which included paying people to dig up dirt in foreign countries." Unsavory? Perhaps. But not illegal.

    Compare that to what we know about George Papadopoulos, a low-level Trump campaign foreign-policy adviser, who has pled guilty to lying to the FBI. The plea agreement, released Monday by Mueller, says Papadopoulos emailed a Russian professor and another Russian contact who promised to turn over Clinton's emails free of charge.

    Or consider the meeting in the summer of 2016 between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian nationals who reportedly offered to hand over dirt on Clinton. Noti said that if the Trump officials solicited the information, "the act itself was unlawful."

    Noti cannot be dismissed as a partisan. Last week, his law center filed a formal complaint with the FEC against the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee for filing misleading federal reports that hid the contract with Fusion GPS. "They routed the money through their legal counsel so that no payment showed up on their federal disclosures," Noti said. "The activity was legal, but they misreported it."

    I would vote for Franken if he ran. His whole "scandal" ended up being nothing.

    I'd say on Franken that he paid his price for his behavior. He did need to resign (he was done as soon as that photo came out) but if he wants to run again for office and rehabilitates his image that's up to the voters of Minnesota as far as I'm concerned.

    Agree he had to resign. With your follow up comment as well.
