    The resident loon at Toronto’s CITY News says it’s like breaking into a bank only to find no money.

    Except the part where breaking into a bank is illegal and meeting someone isn’t.

    • CITY is becoming a parody station.

        They were yacking the other day about another Trump handshake.

        The smartest girl in the room said if it was anyone else, they would never mention it.

        Yesss!

    “Non-elected citizen has a meeting with someone from another nationality–discusses politics” –> Treason

    The Lawyer was a Russian Citizen who has overstayed her Visa, and therefore an illegal immigrant, but no one has shown she was connected to Russian Government. So, according to CNN, who has now fallen to 13th in ratings of Cable news Networks, if any American Citizen talks to anyone from a foreign country, they are all traitors….But when the DNC travels to a foreign Embassy to find dirt on Trump, that is apparently OK.

      Even if she qualifies as an illegal, that means nothing with how many millions of illegals there and how many of those voted.

    I must say they are overly creative with their definition of treason. Yet they ignore those who are actually guilty of treason, but when your objective is to carry out a coup anything goes.

    No but it was still stupid to tweet out all this when he should have just shut up.
