    You have to have evidence of wrongdoing for there to be an investigation. There is no evidence sufficient to conduct an investigation.

    This guy is full of baloney. Many of the oligarchs have an ax to grind vs. Putin who ran many of them out of Russia and prosecuted them. Bill Browder who made hundreds of millions in Russia is one of them.

    I'll never understand this love affair Americans have with Putin anyway, I mean the man wants to see the USA fall on her ass, that's his main goal for God sake's.
    Best thing for all concerned is to keep Russia at arms length, and force Trump to stop doing business with the likes of Saudi, Israel and bloody Russia..
    Take care of yourselves, and stop propping up states and countries that would use and abuse your taxes, and demand your children/soldiers die in their bloody wars.

    Why do you use such terms 'Red Scare' again. You should know that Putin an autocrat, supported by its oligarchs, is. Old fear newly stoked in the wrong way, going past the reality. This is disappointing!

    "… the reports are persuasive, but i wish they put out more evidence"

    Absolutely ZERO evidence, but lots of very firm conclusions, accusations. Only if you have complete TRUST (or a political motive) in the CIA/Cabal can you say it's persuasive…

    Here's a thought why doesn't James Comey get in TV himself and denounce Trump's lunacy? Yeah you know why.

    democracy now has lost it completely. nonsense talk. for years now, and now vault7 revelation confirm, the inteligence has the ability to hack into anyone. What kind of 'evidence' do they need more? did they think they'd find a written note from Obama?

    The Real News Network is also very reliable they have an Exposé on the bizarre billionaire behind Donald Trump his name is Robert Mercer. Also they have a really good segment about this Russia stuff and how to cover it best I believe it's called the real news doesn't support Russian or American oligarchs period you can find it on YouTube. I rely on Democracy Now and the Real News Network for hard-hitting journalism

    Simply doing business with a russian or talking to a russian is not treason because we are not at war with russia. There is no evidence. Thank you Amy for having this debate, having someone sane finally saying the truth: there is no clear evidence, unfortunately, for an impeachment of Trump.

    Did the Pod People get Scott Horton? We have zero evidence of a hack and he's asserting it as fact.

    Perry went to the heart of the matter. There is no evidence. And evidence is needed as many democrats are calling the supposed hacking an act of war, well along with McCain. People want to go to war using evidence-less claims from unknown intelligence sources. We would do well to remember that 70% of the American people supported the invasion of Iraq, and a majority believed Saddam had WNDs. In 2010, 70% of Americans believed Iran had nukes.

    What I find laughable is the argument for less discovery and less investigation coming from self-identified Investigative Journalist Robert Parry. You get and develop evidence by way of investigation. That's how it's done, Bob.

    Give it up Bob Parry, you're trying to defend Trump by ignoring the evidence.
