The issue is not spell check but auto complete or auto correct.

On Russians and Wiretaps
Yesterday FBI chief James Comey testified before the House Intelligence Committee that the FBI was investigating Trump staff ties to Russia, and that there was no evidence supporting Trump's wiretapping claims. Article: F.B.I. Is Investigating Trump’s Russia Ties, Comey Confirms

It has been widely expected that Trump wouldn't be able to get through four years without committing an impeachable offense, but now it seems possible that he committed an impeachable offense even before being inaugurated. Of course he won't actually be impeached, not with the Republicans in control of the House.

Re: On Russians and Wiretaps
I'm not sure what impeachable offense he might have committed yet.

Threats from the Playground Bully
According to today's Washinton Post il Donald made direct threats against any Republicans that did not support TrumpCare.

quote:
“I’m gonna come after you, but I know I won’t have to, because I know you’ll vote ‘yes,’ ” Trump said, according to several Republican lawmakers who attended the meeting. “Honestly, a loss is not acceptable, folks.”

Now Trump would certainly not be the first President to try to bully Congress but unfortunately he's not bright enough it seems to know how to do it. Instead he makes it public so if they cave in he will be seen as the bully he is and if they don't it will simply be yet another in the long line of Trump failures.

And if he thinks ObamaCare was a disaster it will be nothing like the disaster called TrumpCare.

Re: On Russians and Wiretaps
I am actually wondering if this is somewhat of a mea culpa on Comey's part for the snafu regarding the re-opening of the investigation of Hillary's emails right before the election. That is widely regarded as a bonehead move and could have actually tipped the scales in favor of Trump in the election.

My guess is he is performing this civic duty as a means to finally settle the matter and to also give the impression of his bi-partisanship. But I don't think much will come of it. There may be a smoking gun that is discovered. And Trump may actually be stupid enough to have left a trail for them. We shall see.

But my personal opinion is that Trump wasn't in collusion with anyone. He is too dumb to come up with a scheme that intricate. My guess is Putin saw an opportunity to put a halfwit into the White House and he capitalized on it. Trump in the end is just a spoiled-brat man-child with no impulse control. And if he had colluded with the Russians, he probably would have bragged about it on Twitter.
