"Until fossil fuels are completely phased out of electricity generation, electric cars are worse than petrol and diesel. Electricity generation from fossil fuels is only 38% efficient. It produces less carbon to drill for oil, crack it in a refinery, transport the fuel to petrol stations, put it in your car and burn it there for automotive force and drive the same distance as an electric car. I think in the UK there are days where electric cars are worthwhile, but it isn’t a constant thing yet."

That old trope has been debunked dozens of times. The oil industry pumps millions into misinformation because they know the writing's on the wall.

To say this is amateur hour would defame amateurs.

Resign. If you didn’t know this until it was almost too late, you’re even more of an idiot than people think you are. Do the country and the world a favor. Go back to real estate, where the worst you can do is kill banks.

Just what kind of content, exactly, does this 9,500-member strong Facebook group of reportedly current and former Border Patrol members champion? Why that would be memes mocking dead migrant children, photoshopped images of elected officials performing sex acts, and discussions of throwing things at elected officials who visit Border Patrol detention facilities.

Also, a committee is going after the administrations use of private email:

During Trump's embarrassingly-Soviet military show yesterday, it was interesting to hear that during the revolutionary war, the Continental army took over the British Airports

But didn't Clinton actually use personal email servers and wasn't charged for using them?

Yes she did, and she fully complied with all and any investigations into it, and was exonerated.

But despite this, Trump still enjoys leading his drone-like supporters in the now-boring 'lock her up' chant at his many, many rallies.

So what's different about Trump's use then?

I've not followed this so don't know the detail.

The deal is that Trump essentially based his entire Presidential campaign bitching about 'Crooked Hillary's emails', and spent hours berating her about this wafer-thin premise (which also started to raise the 'pizzagate' non-event), instead of making his own personal Presidential pledges, apart from his nonsensical wall and prattling on about how great he is, and his audience lapped it up. It could have very well been the tipping point for the Electoral college result (not the popular one, obviously).

But then, Hillary attended all congressional hearings on the matter, gave evidence, and was found to have not broken any laws. Despite this, Trump is still parroting the same mantras to the same crowd, and they're still responding in that pavlovian way they do when they gather together in huge numbers. Importantly, sycophantic shills like Alex Jones & Fox News repeated these accusations ad nauseum despite all relevent evidence & recent history telling them they were just wrong to do so.

Fast forward to this conversation. Trump's family & some of his Administration have been found to have been doing the exact same thing, but ad they're part of an active administartion, and not as a presidential candidate, the potential 'crimes' that may have been commited are much worse, and the possible implications of that information being taken from those private servers are much more damning.

Basically, it boils down to rampant, systemic & transparent hypocrisy from Trump, his family, his administration & those sycophantic news media outlets who seem to have 'do as I say, not do as I do' tattooed on their frontal lobes.

Ah, so just hypocrisy.

That's fine then.  I expect nothing less from any of them on either side.

However, just for clarity:

Wasn't Clinton part of an active administration at this time?
