On Oct. 2, I woke up to the news that President Donald Trump had tested positive for COVID-19. I wasn’t surprised to hear that, but silently wondered, what now?

I didn’t have to think about it for a long period of time because the next spot of “breaking news” that flashed was that the Marine One helicopter was en route to the White House to transport Trump to Walter Reed Military Hospital, so he could receive proper care for the virus.

At that point, I began thinking about this situation in a different way, in a way that really caused me to pause. I stopped in my tracks and began to think about the fact that the treatment at Walter Reed will be paid for by us, the American taxpayers.

It has been reported that President Trump actually paid $750 in taxes in the years 2016 and 2017. No report of taxes being paid over a 10-year period of time. This man, who was admitted to one of the most prestigious hospitals in the United States, did so, on my dime.

Then I became angry as I thought about the more than 210,000 souls that have been lost in this country because of the virus. The 210,000 people to whom I’m referring couldn’t have become a patient at Walter Reed Military Hospital or any other top-rated facility to be treated. Many of the souls lost had no insurance and couldn’t become a patient in any hospital.

I became angry and frustrated because those people didn’t have to die, but they’re dead. Those people all belonged to a family. Each person was a daughter, son, mother, father, wife, husband, aunt, uncle, grandparent or just a face that others expected to see on a daily basis. What I mean is that more than 210,000 people are missed by someone, daily. Many who died were working, earning wages, so they could provide for their families, and pay taxes as stipulated.

Yes. Pay taxes so Donald Trump can have the best medical care possible for free, thanks to the collected taxpayers; you and me. In addition to the fact that Trump flew to Walter Reed, he had at least nine medical persons that provided him care. The watching public saw three pulmonologists, two infectious disease specialists, one anesthesiologist, one clinical pharmacist, one Navy nurse, one Army nurse, all of Walter Reed and the White House physician, and an osteopathic physician. Ten medical personnel to provide the care needed; many tax dollars for that lineup. However, the president doesn’t contribute to such minor rigors.

Upon arriving home, Trump went to the Truman balcony, pulled off his mask, and took videos and photographs as he continued to spread the virus throughout the White House we own. All I can do is pray for people who cannot isolate from their employer, the president.

"It has been reported that President Trump actually paid $750 in taxes in the years 2016 and 2017." That number is inaccurate. As usual there is no documentation, no sources to back that claim. To the average person it looks like they made it up.

Now here's a fact: By the end of this year, Donald Trump will have contributed $1.6 million, that is $1,600,000 (actually by law he has to keep $1 by year so it's $1,599,996.

So when Edna gives $1,599,996 to the US Treasury, then we will listen to your rant. Until then.....[tongue] !

George Soros

You have no idea how taxes work.

Carlos Ponce

It is apparent you don't. So Trump, LIKE EVERY AMERICAN, used the tax laws to lower his taxes. The numbers reported were not right.

Bailey Jones

Trump has shown Americans how to deal with this so-called "virus".

First, don't bother with a mask because COVID affects virtually nobody.

If that should fail and you catch the "China flu", just have your doctor come to your house and check you out. Use your in-house medical facility if you can. Ask them to give you whatever treatments are available (or not yet available), regardless of the cost. If you're still not feeling 100%, have your helicopter take you to one of the finest hospitals in the nation, to the suite that's sitting there reserved for you at all times. In a few days, you'll feel better. Take a ride in your hermetically sealed limo with people whose health you don't really care about - wave at your fans. In less time than it takes to tweet, "what intervention?", you'll be back on your helicopter heading home. Go out on the balcony like the banana republic reality TV start that you are and wave to your adoring fans. Tell them that you feel great and that COVID isn't anything to be afraid of. Ignore those 214,889 deaths, because none of them were you.

Carlos Ponce

Bailey, there were four news photographers at the reception announcing the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett who later tested POSITIVE. Guess what? They wore masks the entire time at the White House grounds! Did the masks work??????

And for President Trump and almost everyone who had the Chinese Virus it did not prove fatal. The CDC reports that 94% of those who did die had contributing factors in their death - COMORBIDITY. Only 6% die from the virus only. That's the SCIENCE. But Bailey only believes HIS science.

Dan Freeman

I hope you stay healthy. But if you are misfortunate, the next you have surgery ask everyone not to where a mask since they don't work.

Carlos Ponce

A surgeon's mask is DIFFERENT from what is worn by most, Dan. I thought you once worked for UTMB. Those I know who work for UTMB KNOW the difference. You seem not to.

Paula Flinn

The news photographers tested positive because OTHER PEOPLE didn’t have on masks. You wear the mask to protect me, and I wear a mask to protect you. Yes, the masks work! It’s not rocket science!

Also, there was no social distancing, and part of the socializing that day was indoors.

Carlos Ponce

So Paula states that BOTH have to wear masks. [rolleyes]

Written by Lynne Springer

When the Health Department stated that we needed to wear masks they also stated that we needed to social distance. For you, Mr. Ponce, it is one of those 2-fer-deals. Wear a mask AND social distance. While they may have worn their mask I know that they did not social distance. While they sat next to each other which was maybe 2 inches apart. When the ceremony was over the people got up and began to mingle. The distance then changed from 2 inches to 2 feet in some case and for those that were hugging no inches. The ceremony was held in the Rose Garden which does not take up the entire White House Grounds. Had the people been able to use a larger space to enable social distancing at the recommended 6 ft. perhaps, this would not have been coined as the Spreader Event.

In regards to the above article by Mrs. Courville mentioning the taxes that Mr. Trump paid. I do not think that it is necessary for her to cite her sources. This was news from the big three:ABC, CBS. NBC, MSNBC. FOX- local, FOX- national, along. with cable News station- CNN, not to mention many newspaper. Is it really necessary for her to cite a source? If she were writing a dissertation or a Thesis and had to prove something then, maybe it would necessary to place a citation in her article. Personally. I do not see the necessity of that for a small town newspaper. If you, Mr. Ponce, did not hear this information on the news, then, it would be beneficial for you to make a point to listen to the news on television. Besides, a Letter to the Editor enables a person tell their opinion and not prove their information to the readers.

Coronavirus 19 and Covid are the correct names, not Chinese virus. There has never been a report that has stated that all people who contracted the virus would die. Those that do get sick are usually able to recover provided that they do not have other health issues. When a person who has other medical conditions gets Covid the covid causes the other conditions to worsen. In the case of a cousin of mine he would have eventually died but, when Covid was added on it attacked his already weakened immune system and sped up the process. When he went to the hospital he did not have Covid and when he left the hospital he did. He came home with his other medical issues ( not the one that sent him to the hospital) and Covid. He died within days of returning home.

Masking ( which includes covering the nose) and social distancing work hand in hand. Besides, what is the purpose of a mask if it is not worn properly. It is not as if it is a fashion statement.

Carlos Ponce

"Is it really necessary for her to cite a source?" Considering the information is debunked as fraudulent.....YES!

Knowing that many who contracted the Chinese Virus wore masks, it is a mere fashion statement.

Craig Mason

I hope when welfare queen Donnie Trump is kicked to the curb November 3rd that there is deep cleaning done at the white house before Biden moves in.

Biden is moving back to his basement once he loses.

VP Mike Pence did something tonight that I was not expecting him to do! He exposed Kamala Harris as someone who is NOT qualified to be a heartbeat away from the Presidency of this nation! In doing that, he exposed Joe Biden right along with her! KAMALA HARRIS has little knowledge of foreign policies, and how to govern.

She talks boldly about police reform, but when she had an opportunity to contribute to true police reform in a bipartisan way with Senator Scott, she got up walked out of the meeting and voted the bill down on the floor. She played the race card off the bottom of the deck tonight when the topic of the Supreme Court packing by the LEFT came up! Pence disarmed her,...and flustered her into submission tonight!

KAMALA HARRIS would not answer many questions and lied about many others! This debate was a disaster for the LEFT and more than that, it was the pivotal point of destruction for the HARRIS- BIDEN debacle of a campaign! She lied about fracking and the Green Deal! This is AOC's PARTY now, and there is no question about It!

China television censored tonight's debate when Pence was talking, and they uncensored the debate when Kamala began talking again! Now you tell me who is in cahoots with China! It is a known fact that Kamala Harris and Joe plans on removing the China sanctions fist thing ..if they gain the Presidency! They plan on dropping the Trump tax-cuts and re-install the job killing regulations created by BIDEN & OBAMA!

They will continue to enrich themselves selling influence like HUNTER, CROOKED, and the rest of the Bidens have done already! A great night for TRUMP & Pence! Pence is a badddddddd man!

Carlos Ponce

I loved when Pence revealed that it was Hillary Clinton who created the RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA hoax. Ccreated, paid for it, continues to insist it is true. And the evidence points to Obama being informed of this.

ABC, NBC, CBC and the rest of the media are panicking because they have not reported the ton of evidence declassified by President Trump. Their viewers/readers have been left in the dark.

One word fits the Trump haters if they claim Pence's revelation is not true - IGNORANT.

AS for Kamala, she repeated every DNC talking point which is nothing but lies and obfuscations. And her views on the issues twist like a weather vane in a tornado.

Roy Hughes

Written by Lynne Springer

Mr. Ponce,

Since you know that Kamala is lying and that Trump and Pence never have do you have telepathic communications with Trump and Pence? How are you able to discern that the Dems are lying and the Republicans are telling the truth? Have you had any special training to tell the difference?

You seem to have much to say about Kamala. Instead of wasting space in the comment section of someone else's letter to the editor why don't you write an article to provide everyone who reads the paper a play by play on her life? You could send that into Reader's Opinion instead of Letters to Editor. Please make sure you cite all your sources following the MLA method.

Carlos Ponce

Lynne, it's called doing your own fact checks and using the Gift of discernment from the Lord. No telepathy involved.

Checking what the Liberals call a "Trump lie" points out their fallacies, not Trump's.

Why don't I write an article? Doing it this way is MUCH MORE FUN![beam]

Paula Flinn

The New York Times listed the lies VP Pence told during the debate, and, guess what? They were the same lies Trump tells starting with the claim that Joe Biden will raise everyone’s taxes.

Senator Kamala Harris won that debate with the truth. Her facts were clear and delivered with a joyful heart and spirit. VP Pence droned on and on like he missed his nap that afternoon. He was so boring and unenthusiastic it was embarrassing. His interruptions were disgraceful, butting in during Sen. Harris’ two minute answers. He came across as sneaky and rude.

Carlos Ponce

Anyone who trusts the New York Times is gullible, Paula:

Kamala told LIE after LIE after LIE! But the Liberal press was hard pressed to find a fabrication told by Pence. Did you read the article, Paula?????? They stated his statements were"misleading"..

Let's take a look at what they called "FALSE":

“It was an outdoor event which all of our scientists regularly, routinely advise.”

It was an outdoor event - the reception where they celebrated Amy Coney Barrett's nomination where several attendees later tested positive. Government scientists recommended an outdoor function. NYT LIED!

The NYT also states this was a lie:

“The United States has reduced CO2 more than the countries that are still in the Paris climate accord. But we’ve done it through innovation, and we’ve done it through natural gas and fracking.”

Liberal Snopes agrees with Pence:

"According to International Energy Agency data, the United States achieved the largest absolute reduction in carbon dioxide emissions of any country in 2019." Snopes calls the claim a "mixture" citing "other countries and regions fared better" but remember, Mike Pence LIMITED his comparison to those countries still in the Paris accord.

Of ALL THE LIES Kamala told they said she lied when she said: "On Day 1, Joe Biden will repeal that tax bill.”On Day 1, Joe Biden will repeal that tax bill.” Joe has said that. Kamala did not lie. She told the truth. Here's the video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWMotXNUqbE

Kamala's real lies to follow......

Carlos Ponce

"Senator Kamala Harris won that debate with the truth." This must be a joke! She LIED throughout the debate!

"The president said it [the pandemic] was a hoax." FALSE!

From Liberal Snopes:

"During a Feb. 28, 2020, campaign rally in South Carolina, President Donald Trump likened the Democrats' criticism of his administration's response to the new coronavirus outbreak to their efforts to impeach him, saying "this is their new hoax." During the speech he also seemed to downplay the severity of the outbreak, comparing it to the common flu.

Despite creating some confusion with his remarks, Trump did not call the coronavirus itself a hoax."

Now where Snopes got it wrong was saying Trump's comparison to the flu was "downplay". The flu accounts for YEARLY deaths in the tens of thousands. It can be lethal.

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-coronavirus-rally-remark/

Carlos Ponce

Another Kamala LIE:

"And our plan is about what we need to do around a national strategy for contact tracing, for testing, for administration of the vaccine and making sure that it will be free for all. That is the plan that Joe Biden has and that I have, knowing that we have to get a hold of what has been going on and we need to save our country. And Joe Biden is the best leader to do that and frankly, this administration has forfeited their right to reelection, based on this."

How's their plan different from from what's been done by the Trump administration???? It isn't different.

Biden led the effort to combat the H1N1 pandemic which led to 60.8 million infections. His chief of staff said they messed up badly and were just lucky this virus was not as lethal.

Ron Klain (Biden Chief of Staff): “It had nothing to do with us doing anything right. It just had to do with luck. If anyone thinks that this can’t happen again, they don’t have to go back to 1918, they just have to go back to 2009, 2010 and imagine a virus with a different lethality, and you can just do the math on that.”

Read the Liberal Politico article: "Biden has fought a pandemic before. It did not go smoothly. The Obama administration's ability to stop the swine flu came down to luck, one former aide says."

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/05/04/joe-biden-contain-h1n1-virus-232992

"And Joe Biden is the best leader to do that ...." WHAT A JOKE! FALSE!

Carlos Ponce

More Kamala les:

"We now know because of great investigative journalism that Donald Trump paid $750 in taxes. When I first heard about it, I literally said “You mean $750,000?”. And it was like no, $750."

Nothing to back it up. The numbers do not correspond with anything. They're made up.The fact is Trump does not file his own taxes. A tax consultant works on the taxes for each year and like H & R Block does for you they seek every LEGAL deduction, exemption. He also paid NY State and NYC taxes. That's why he's moving to Florida. On top of all those taxes he's contributed his presidential salary of about $1,600,000 to the government.

Kamala is repeating a LIE told by the Liberal press.

Carlos Ponce

And here's where Kamala tells the truth :

"On day one, Joe Biden will repeal that tax bill. He'll get rid of it."

That's what Joe said! But the NYT calls that statement "FALSE".

Carlos Ponce

Pence: Senator Harris tell you, on day one Joe Biden's gonna raise your taxes. It's really remarkable to think, Susan –

HARRIS: That’s not what I said.

Yes, you did, Kamala! You said Biden would remove the Trump tax cuts and that includes the tax you and I pay. According to the NYT just about every American benefited from the Trump tax cuts:

"Face It: You (Probably) Got a Tax Cut - The New York Times"

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/14/business/economy/income-tax-cut.html

By removing the Trump tax cuts your taxes (and mine) are going up.

Carlos Ponce

Another Kamala LIE:

"Joe Biden will not end fracking."

During Democrat debate:

SANDERS: You -- you -- you talk about -- you know, I'm talking about stopping fracking as soon as we possibly can. I'm talking about telling the fossil fuel industry that they are going to stop destroying this planet -- no ifs, buts and maybes about it.

BIDEN: So am I.

BIDEN: No more -- no new fracking.

http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/2003/15/se.03.html

Carlos Ponce

Pence: I know Joe Biden says otherwise now, as you do, but the both of you repeatedly committed to abolishing fossil fuel and banning fracking.

HARRIS: That’s not true.

That was true, Kamala!

Kamala Harris: “There’s no question I’m in favor of banning fracking.”

That's what Kamala said in a CNN Presidential Town Hall. Did you forget your own words, Kamala?

Carlos Ponce

Kamala: Joe Biden is responsible for saving America's auto industry and you voted against it.

FALSE! As CNN has fact checked, Biden was hardly involved in devising plans to bail out the auto industry. The original plan came from George W. Bush’s administration:

"Auto bailout

On Twitter Wednesday, Biden wrote "President Obama and I rescued the auto industry."

Facts First: Biden is leaving out crucial context in not mentioning the efforts of President George W. Bush.

With just weeks left in his presidency and in the midst of the great recession and an automotive crisis in the US, Bush announced on December 19, 2008 a $17.4 billion auto bailout -- $13.4 billion of which would be distributed almost immediately.

After an auto bailout bill was rejected by the Senate, Bush took this money from the Troubled Asset Relief Program. Obama continued where Bush left off, and by June of 2009, had given -- combined with the amount under Bush -- $80 billion in bankruptcy loans from TARP, mostly to Chrysler and General Motors."

https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/12/politics/fact-check-joe-biden-trade-deficit-auto-bailout/index.html

Joe had nothing to do with it.

Carlos Ponce

Kamala: For example, they created, within the White House, an office that basically was just responsible for monitoring pandemics. They got away, they got rid of it.

FALSE!

"The Global Health Security and Biodefense unit — responsible for pandemic preparedness — was established in 2015 by Barack Obama’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice. The unit resided under the National Security Council (NSC) — a forum of White House personnel that advises the president on national security and foreign policy matters."

John Bolton merged the unit with other units in the NSC to streamline operation and remove redundancy.

"Claims that streamlining NSC structures impaired our nation's bio defense are false. Global health remained a top NSC priority." - John Bolton

Carlos Ponce

Kamala: Donald Trump, who went to Arlington Cemetery, and stood above the graves of our fallen heroes and said, ‘What's in it for them?’

No documentation, no sources, Kamala is just repeating GOSSIP.

Carlos Ponce

Kamala: Donald Trump is in court right now trying to get rid of the Affordable Care Act. And I've said it before and it bears repeating: That means that there will be no protections, if they win, for people with pre-existing conditions.

Trump is trying to remove that awful expensive ACA which drove health care up, not affordable.

Covering pre-existing conditions is what Trump demands on the ACA replacement.

Carlos Ponce

Kamala: In 1864, one of the, I think, political heroes – certainly the president, and I assume to you as well, Mr. Vice President – is Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln was up for reelection, and it was 27 days before the election, and a seat became open on the United States Supreme Court. Abraham Lincoln's party was in charge, not only in the White House, but the Senate. But honest Abe said it's not the right thing to do.

Fact is the Senate was not in session when Justice Taney died on October 12, 1864. Lincoln needed Salmon Chase to campaign for him prior to the November General election so naming him would not be politically helpful. Having a man you have nominated for SCOTUS Justice campaigning for you would not sit well with many. So Lincoln waited until after the Senate reconvened in December to name Chase.

Even Liberal Snopes rates Kamala's claim "FALSE".

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/lincoln-1864-supreme-court/

Carlos Ponce

Kamala: ...the President of the United States took the debate stage in front of 70 million Americans and refused to condemn white supremacists. And –

FALSE:

Transcript:

CHRIS WALLACE: You have repeatedly criticized the vice president for not specifically calling out Antifa and other left wing extremist groups. But are you willing tonight to condemn white supremacists

DONALD TRUMP: Sure!

and militia group and to say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence in a number of these cities as we saw in Kenosha and as we've seen in Portland.

DONALD TRUMP: Sure, I'm willing to do that.

And there are dozens of instances where Trump has denounced David Duke, the KKK, white supremacists, neo-Nazis anyone who does evil. Just look it up. I have posted them earlier.

Carlos Ponce

Kamala: He was – he called Mexicans rapists and criminals.

FALSE!

Not ALL Mexicans, just the rapists and criminals. And Hispanics and Mexicans will tell you, "¡El esta diciendo la verdad!" He's telling the truth!

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

Most immigrants send themselves both legal and illegal. WHO does the country of Mexico send? The undesirables, the criminals, those who pay "la mordida" (bribe) promising to get out of Mexico and not be a burden to them or to avoid the Mexican hellhole known as "la cárcel" - prison.

Carlos Ponce

Kamala: He instituted as his first act a Muslim ban.

FALSE.

Trump took the Obama era list and banned those countries. Religion was NEVER mentioned. Each country was then evaluated, some removed some added.

"Pew Research Center estimated that Trump’s original executive order would affect only about 12 percent of Muslims in the world."

https://www.factcheck.org/2018/06/trumps-travel-ban-doesnt-affect-all-muslims/

So 88% of Muslims were not affected. Kamala LIED!

Carlos Ponce

Kamala: And Donald Trump, when asked about it, said there were fine people on both sides.

There were fine people on both sides but Kamala excludes the REST of what he said:

"And you had people -- and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists -- because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists."

Carlos Ponce

"Senator Kamala Harris won that debate with the truth." Let the FACTS show she repeatedly LIED or at best obfuscated.

What's sad is when someone with Paula Flinn's education, background and career accepts the NYT false narratives as truth without doing her own fact checks. Paula, you've been duped!

Ted Gillis

You really believe this misinformation Carlos?

Of course Obama was informed. Obama actually read his intelligence briefings, unlike someone else who doesn’t read anything. CIA director Brennan stated as such, and told Obama that this story was being pushed by Russia, and that the theory was not credible. That’s what he briefed Obama on. And nobody disputes that the Clinton campaign paid for the Steele dossier. That was reported by all of the networks, over and over and over again. What is not being told enough by republicans is that Steele himself went to the FBI after the Clinton campaign failed to use or release the information in the dossier. Steele felt that there was enough credible information in the dossier to be investigated by the FBI. Steele was then maligned by the republicans for doing this.

None of this “investigate the investigators” is going to amount to anything. One FBI agent changed an email after the fact. He should be disciplined and terminated if it turns out to be something of substance. And why just unclassify some of the Mueller report. I say unclassify all of it. (Remove the black sharpie marks!)

Carlos Ponce

No misinformation, Ted. This is declassified FBI evidence. Time to get your head out of the sand.

“In late July 2016, U.S. intelligence agencies obtained insight into Russian intelligence analysis alleging that U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had approved a campaign plan to stir up a scandal against U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump by tying him to Putin and the Russians' hacking of the Democratic National Committee. "

Carlos Ponce

And Mike Pompeo said today Hillary's emails will be declassified and revealed to support this.

Ted Gillis

I thought Clinton’s emails were in some type of missing server hidden in Ukraine by Crowd Strike or some kind of nonsense like that.

Carlos Ponce

No, Ted. These are government e-mails. Hillary knew that by using her own server ans cell devices they'd be hard to access. And they were especially after she had her devices smashed, bleach bitted, etc. But she sent the e-mails to people who did not use such precautions.(Her precautions we call obstruction of justice.) Some wound up on government servers, cell devices. It took time to round them up......

David Hardee

No one would ever intentionally get infected or intentionally infect another.

Authors position is n perfect alignment with the gaggle of our society that are intent on striking an attack on any act, position or statement by President Trump. She has found the full circle of - woe is, and, awful - for to cover all the bases make herself appear the champion of the people to slay the dragon.Trump

The essence of her article is Trump got special treatment and the rest of us paid for while we are subjected to his depriving us and spreading the virus. Effectively she want to portray Trump in the "let them eat cake" image of Marie Antoinette.

These all knowing sycophants are the disgusting follow ons to the disgusting Media that has polluted the society with bombarding their denigrating opinions about Trump while disguised as journalist.

The tragedy is that the majority of society while busy keeping the demands of their daily lives in order - have only the Media swill for making evaluations.

This article deserves filing under classification of another Trump Hater.

Ted Gillis

Wait a minute Carlos, are you talking about her emails while she was Sect.of State? Yes those are government emails. Declassify those please. But what you’re stating above was from 2016, long after she retired from public service. How can you declassify someone’s private emails? Who’s spying now?

Those are not government emails!

Carlos Ponce

They were found on Anthony Weiner's laptop.

Carlos Ponce

Within hours of the Sept. 26, 2016, search warrant, FBI technicians noticed there were 340,000 emails on the laptop between Clinton and her top aide, Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin.

Thomas Carpenter

Quick Queequeg, a harpoon!

Ted Gillis

Clinton had been a private citizen since 2012. John Kerry was Secretary of State from 2012-2016, so just who’s government emails are you referring to? Huma? Not a government employee in 2016. Anthony? Also not a government employee in 2016?

No one has been able to tell us what crime was supposedly committed? I’m not trying to re-drag up old stuff but really, what crime was committed?

The Durham investigators couldn’t even come up with anything, even when they were told to do so.

Carlos Ponce

" so just who’s government emails are you referring to?" Emails sent from Hillary to Huma.
