Really interesting the work that lawyer was doing. It's weird Ivanka wasn't there? Maybe this altruistic first family also has a player in Donald Jr. with regards to a passion for adoption?

Cool!

They have to coordinate if they are going to be successful creating a new world alliance of power. Merkle isn't it.

Russia is your chosen exemplar of a nation you want a strong alliance with? Over a liberal democracy like Germany? (shaking head)

In case you missed it, that's Manafort in the room with a Russian intelligence agent ... during the campaign. The sources appear not to be Mueller linked. They did not deny the campaign was discussed.

What did Natalia want? What did she offer?

Germany is far from a Democracy, the kick in doors and lock up people for informing the world a loved one was Rapped by a Muslim Refugee, but they allowed those Facist hooligans to rip out bricks from the street and pelt their own Police force. At least Putin don't do creepy shit with this fingers. That evil cunt.

Nothing comes to mind as similar or more sever, with (edit) regards to domestic issues, for Russia? No? Ok. All good then.

So you are saying Russia is a much better democracy than Germany. Scored some really good dope tonight aren't you?

What a nice, classy country that Mother Russia is: in retaliation to less than two hundred corrupt govt fucks being put on some travel ban list they denied tens of thousands of sick Russian orphans a chance at decent life in US. They fucking retaliate by punishing their own people. That's fucking terrorist behavior, pure and simple.

And if by 'corrupt government fucks' you mean a specific 44 Putanista intelligence agents trying to warp American policy to favor Russia's aims ... you would be dead on. They are spies and ex-KGB acolytes.

I don't doubt the meeting was called to talk about "adoption", but it didn't stay there. You don't craftily get a meeting with three top campaign officials/strategists in the room with you to talk about adoption. Something else was on the table even if team Trump refused it.

“Nothing at all was discussed about the presidential campaign,” she said, adding, “I have never acted on behalf of the Russian government and have never discussed any of these matters with any representative of the Russian government.”

Oh, wait ... never mind. I was wrong. (eye roll)

Obama somehow figured all of this out after trump was elected and before he left office? Right...

This is full conspiratard logic

The Obama administration kicked the 44 Russian agents out in 2012. That's the backstory precipitator of the players.

It isn't the Obama administration that made this Trump officials meeting known. It appears that the meeting had to be disclosed by a lawyer of Donald Jrs, Jared's, or Manafort. It is unknown the actual trigger that made this happen, but it will be associated with ongoing investigations. Most likely is Jared's major security clearance issues.

It has been shown that the Obama administration, and by that we mean the US intelligence agencies, had enough concern about ties with Russia when Trump came into office that they did take some measures to protect themselves. They information shared and spread information further into the agencies to prevent it from being in a single location and removed. Information sharing of that degree is not uncommon, but it is very uncommon to have that caused by fears surrounding an incoming administration.

An American president feared by his own intelligence agencies? Ask yourself if that is much of an American thing at all.

And to be clear, the intelligence agencies aren't afraid that Trump is a Manchurian candidate or completely in Russia's pocket ... they are scared because they haven't been able to determine the nature of so many of the contacts and angles the Russian's keep showing up on their radars around the administration.

Purely a political move. This is no different than benghazi, ending the hillary investigation, weaponizing the IRS, stealing the DNC primary, colluding w MSM media, and unmasking American citizens.

When team Trump learns that a cover up, not disclosing, or acts that cause the perception of obstruction, are often far worse, they will be on the road to absolving themselves.

(holding breath)

It's too bad that team Mueller even had to happen. As others have said we likely now really will find something dirty under the covers. It's in the nature of aggressive driven prosecutors.

You can't pretend to speak for the intelligence community.

Every public statement has thrashed the collusion story. Every. Single. One.

How is the intelligence agencies working to protect their information a 'purely political' move? Or are you referring to the investigations into contacts with Russia as a whole?

Fare enough. They spread out the information they had on Russian contacts and aligned interests in the Trump administration "for fun".

"I have no knowledge" is not the same as "Our investigation has found no collusion and wrong doing". How long did Watergate take to commit and then to investigate and bring before hearings?

I wish that were so. People, and especially Western Europe, really aren't laughing. There is massive uncertainty in our President and the direction of our country.

Europe's problems are mostly self inflicted, massive debt, unfavorable demographics, and the immigrants. And with Trump, they know they are on the hook to do what it takes to pull themselves out of it. Boo hoo.

With Trump they see a weak ally. What in Trump suddenly means Europe is "on the hook". On the hook for what?

It's not Europe that's going to be missing out on trade. It's US!

The US economy is a juggernaut. The inertia is insane. You are attributing economic prosperity and some weird conception of change to an administration who hasn't done much of anything, and even if they had, the economic effects of any policy wouldn't be felt for many months to years afterwards.

You are looking at right now and attributing it to Trump.
I'm pointing at the future and what I see coming.

The only Obama "inertia" was gifted from quantitative easing. Even with 3 rounds during Obama's terms, the economy had stalled. Every indicator since Trump has come into office shows increased optimism, increased investments, decreased illegal immigration (and associated costs), decreased unemployment, decreased deficit, and a record high stock market (despite rising interest rates).

He has also quietly arrested an entire army of child molesters, not to mention saved us from WW3 w Russia despite the best efforts of the democrats.

Any unbiased observer would say he's doing pretty damn well so far.

The economy is basically acting exactly as it did for the last 3 years under Obama. If you like it, then you owe Obama a big thank you.

TPB - informing the world a loved one was Rapped by a Muslim Refugee.

What style of '"rap" do the Muslim Refugees perform ?

Kicking in doors and locking up people you say. Sounds like a typical run of the mill night in mainstream America to me. Correct house/address not required as long as it looks good on video. If the occupants protest - lock up for interfering with official police matters.

Body cam - forgot to turn it on - problem solved.
