If they'd found Trump guilty, the Republicans would have demanded an investigation of the Clintons, and that wouldn't be pretty. It would also have started a precedent that top politicians are no longer above the law!  😮

I with you, on how terrible the Clintons are.

Something that Cav does not appear to understand, but I think you do, Trump is worse.

You say "If they'd found Trump guilty" - can't yet, no indictment, no trial.

Trump's only way out of this, is to resign and have Pence pardon him, immediately, à la, Nixon and Ford.

IMHO Trump will go the way of Hubris and attempt a shot, at another term.

I had to re read that comment a few times before I got it. The word “Top”

I understand now what Flash is inferring, “Top” as in position held not as in Manchester or Irish “Top” meaning “The Best”, we can have a “Top Man” a “Top Tune” ( a Top Top Tune is better than. Top Tune but not as good as a Top Top Top Tune)

Irish “Top of the Morning to ya” means I wish you the best day 

There is another usage of the word “Top” but the Image of Hillary wearing a Strap-On is too sick even for I to contemplate.

Sri Lanka bombings ringleader died in hotel attack, president says

The alleged ringleader behind Sri Lanka's Easter Sunday bombings was killed in the attacks, President Maithripala Sirisena said.

Mr Sirisena said Zahran Hashim, a radical preacher, died at the Shangri-La hotel in the capital, Colombo.

He said Hashim led the attack on the popular tourist hotel, accompanied by a second bomber identified as "Ilham".

At least 250 people died in the wave of bombings on Sunday, which targeted churches and hotels in Colombo.

Mr Sirisena also said that Sri Lankan intelligence services believed around 130 suspects linked to Islamic State (IS) group were in the country and that police were hunting 70 who were still at large.

...

Who was Zahran Hashim?

A previously little-known domestic radical, Hashim gained some local notoriety a few years ago as part of a group which defaced Buddhist statues. He subsequently found a following on YouTube, where he posted videos calling for violence against non-Muslims.

In the days after the Easter Sunday attacks, he appeared in a video released by IS in which seven men - thought to be some of the bombers - pledged allegiance to the group. Hashim was the only one to show his face.

Hashim was from the coastal Sri Lankan town of Kattankudy. There, earlier this week, his sister told the BBC she was horrified by what her brother had done.

"Even if he is my brother, I cannot accept this. I don't care about him any more," she said, adding that Hashim had been in contact with her until about two years ago, when he went quiet.

Who were the attackers?

Nine people are suspected of carrying out the attacks. Two of the bombers are said to have been the sons of spice trader Mohammad Yusuf Ibrahim, one of Sri Lanka's richest men. Mr Ibrahim was detained and questioned after the attacks.

One of his sons was reportedly the bomber at the city's Shangri-La hotel - alongside Hashim, according to President Sirisena. The other son reportedly targeted the restaurant at the high-end Cinnamon Grand hotel, a short distance away.

A woman said to be a wife of one of Mr Ibrahim's sons detonated explosives during a police raid at the family's villa on Sunday. Several people, including children and three police officers, were reportedly killed in that blast.

According to the Sri Lankan government, most of the attackers were "well educated" and had come from "middle- or upper middle-class" families.

Another of the alleged bombers studied in the UK, a senior Whitehall official told the BBC. Abdul Latif Jamil Mohammed studied aerospace engineering at Kingston University in 2006-7 but did not complete a full degree.
