    The tactics of the Trump party are lie, slander and delay. This is just one part of that sordid picture.

    The problem with that is that Manning had already been in prison for espionage, I don't want to say it but false equivalency does come to mind.

    Manning was convicted by a judge. The AG can not order a jail sentence. Yawn.

    Was a bit of a naughty reply. He said "I don't want to say it", but did it anyway

    But thank you, I did not know this

    There are also lower charges like theft and military conduct.

    A valid subpoena is not a valid subpoena? It's not false in my mind. If an organization can issue a valid subpoena, that's all that counts. And I'd bet that the Republicans Clinton impeachment drama did not refrain from issuing them when it was their turn. But now that the shoe's on the other foot? Oh my, it's different now.

    In Clinton's case it was perjury and obstruction of justice which he was found guilty of

    In Mannings case he was guilty of espionage

    Still doesn't make that meme any less of a failure.

    You're confusing history. Clinton's convictions, for example, happened AFTER the subpoenas were issued. Hopefully Trump's convictions for obstruction etc in the Senate will happen unlikely as it seems right now. And hopefully his convictions in a court of law for his crimes will happen as well.

    Why do you wish an innocent man to be found guilty of anything? (innocent until proven guilty)

    It still doesn't change the fact that the meme sucked, it happens. Maybe the Russian troll farm made it to spread misinformation and exploit divisions to undermine our democracy, we may never know. What we do know is that memes are a dime a dozen, some of the best ones are actually funny. For example, (and you should appreciate this) I saw this one with George Bush and it said "worst president ever" then it had a picture of Trump and it said "hold my beer", though hateful, completely misguided, and very partisan it was still funny. Hopefully this was an enlightening and useful moment of your life reading my post that you can't get back.

    Hitler was never convicted of anything.
    Does that mean you think he was innocent?
