Precisely what you’d expect from opposition research.

What isn’t to spec is our highest law agencies using such flimsy dirt to waive Constitutional protections, spy on a Presidential campaign, and give regular reports to the opposition.

It’s a freaking miracle that Trump won with all the rampant blatant cheating against him.

The biggest irony here was the FISA court wa set up after Nixon to prevent the government spying on people and now is used by the government to spy on the opposition party and derail an election. Dems have now lost their mind-I cannot believe any sane dem -why is this ok??

This just has to be fake news.

After all, Don Jr. had a 15 minute meeting with a Russian attorney looking to get an adoption policy changed, and Pres. Trump once put Russian dressing on his salad.

That's the TRUE Russian collusion, right?

People stop flocking to these fucking liar sites that dish out the daily red meat.

You are going to get all sorts of crazy ideas.

Fox news was bad enough 24/7 straight up GOP mind control, FREE as long as the carriers promise 24/7 use, but the others I see just tell the most stinking lie they can possibly think of hoping by time the truth get publicized no one will care, because they are on to the next UFO citing for y'all in an hour or so.

This is how you get to be ridiculous as a group. Trump makes it a [point to lie to numb the audience to lies. His lying is unparalleled in his office. But you don't care. You want more red meat. This is about the memo below, but every day there will be more red meat built up on lies because people will click on it and advertisers will keep paying.

This is actually quite black and white. There’s no evidence of politicized intelligence or law enforcement or counter-intelligence work at all. Actually not any. All the evidence is based on false claims, logical fallacies or intentionally misleading representations of how standard law enforcement procedures work. There’s also a high brow version of this which redirects the conversation toward longstanding and legitimate concerns about whether the FISA system is consistent with the rule of law in the first place. This is a grave error which only confuses the situation and makes general considerations about the rule of law into a tool of someone trying to trample on it.

The FBI and its counter-intelligence branch is and long has been a generally conservative institution. That doesn’t mean it’s “biased.” The possibility that people can remain professional in spite of personal political beliefs is a cornerstone premise of democratic government. But the notion of anti-Republican or anti-Trump bias is really preposterous on its face.

lol--see here's the part that Trump fanboys can't understand. Liberals have no problem admitting when Dem politicians let them down. Bill Clinton was a DINO and promoted many Republican policies like deregulation and free trade as well as welfare reform. Those are not liberal policies and that is evidenced by the fact that Dem Congressmen overwhelmingly voted against those measures while Republican Congressmen voted overwhelmingly in favor of them.

Does the name, Evelyn Farkas, ring any bells??

"EVELYN FARKAS: …“I was urging my former colleagues and, frankly speaking, people on the Hill…[to] get as much information as you can, as much intelligence as you can, before President Obama leaves the administration.”

Farkas admitted that she “had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior people [from the Obama administration] who left.” She feared that it would disappear into the abyss of “the bureaucracy,” and “that the Trump folks, if they found out how we knew what we knew about…the Trump staff’s dealing with Russia, that they would try to compromise those sources and methods.”.

There are several telling insights to glean from Farkas’ remarks.

First, Farkas here acknowledges that the Obama administration, essentially, had indeed been gathering intelligence, or spying, on private citizens.

The appeal of Trump is that his lies are blatant and out in the open. He could not give a flying fuck if you believe him or not.
Hillary and the vast majority of politicians mask their lies with deception, which translates to a double slap in the face to the masses.

That’s not how it works. When the FBI questions a suspect, they already know all the facts. What they are looking for is either the suspect to incriminate himself or state something that disagrees with their list of facts. This could be a wrong date or time or any sort of thing deemed material to the case. Then BLAM! They’ve got the guy cold on “Lying to the FBI” which is a felony.

If you are ever requested to be interviewed by the FBI as anything other than a witness, decline. If you can’t decline, say as little as possible, and use Hilldawg’s favorite line “I do not recall” like you’re at church and that’s a Hail Mary. There is no benefit from talking to them. There is only a near certain conclusion that they will stick you with this ridiculous charge of lying to them.

http://reason.com/archives/2018/02/08/donald-trump-shouldnt-talk-to-the-feds-a
“The president is no mere witness. He is at least a subject, and likely a target, of the special counsel's investigation. In federal criminal parlance, a witness is someone not suspected of wrongdoing who has useful information, a subject is someone suspected of wrongdoing who may well be charged if the evidence supports it, and a target is someone whose indictment is actively sought as a purpose of the investigation. When the feds interview a subject or target, their goal is not mere information-gathering or fact-finding or "clearing a few things up." Their goal is the hunt.

In the old westerns, rather than take the trouble of hauling mustachioed miscreants to desultory trials, lawmen would often provoke them into drawing first, thus justifying shooting them down where they stood. A modern federal interview of a subject or target is like that. One purpose, arguably the primary purpose, is to provoke the foolish interviewee into lying, thus committing a new, fresh federal crime that is easily prosecuted, rendering the original investigation irrelevant. Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001, which makes it a felony to lie to the feds, is their shiny quick-draw sidearm. This result not an exception; it is the rule. It happens again and again.

Consider George Papadopoulos. The special counsel secured his guilty plea not for improper contact with the Russians but for lying about that contact to the FBI. Consider Michael Flynn. He too pled guilty not to unlawful contact with Russians but to lying to the FBI about that contact. ”

Please list what those 4 indictments are and how they are directly related to Trump's 2016 campaign.


If it's a broken record, then I'm sure you already know. One typically doesn't lie to an investigator unless he/she has something to hide...

What are the 4 indictments? Has our president done something illegal?

I approved this since it accused Trump of Insulting Somebody's Intelligence and I didn't see a who specifically was being insulted, just all Trump Supporters.

Consider George Papadopoulos. The special counsel secured his guilty plea not for improper contact with the Russians but for lying about that contact to the FBI. Consider Michael Flynn. He too pled guilty not to unlawful contact with Russians but to lying to the FBI about that contact. ”


Right--and that's because they are co-operating. If no cooperation, then the charges are probably different and more serious.

These guys knowingly lied to hide incriminating meetings, evidence, statements that they didn't think the FBI already knew. Unfortunately for them, the investigators did their jobs and proved them to be liars.


Can you please explain how you know this inside information from Mueller,. I'm curious where the details of these investigations leaked out. I haven't read the details.

No, because in our election system, it was basically Hillary the Wonderful Progressive Totally Not A Hint of Corruption vs. Trump. There were two choices, and contrasting with the losing candidate who was the only viable alternative is perfectly reasonable.

I have no love for Trump (did not vote for him, do not like tax cut without corresponding cutting of expenses - where is fiscal responsibility), but this Russian collusion issue is loads of crap. If anyone was colluding with Russian, then it was Clintons who got money from them for their foundation.

One interesting piece of news which is ignored by MSM. I will give a link and then translation, as it can be found only in Russian-language media.

https://el-murid.livejournal.com/3662471.html https://el-murid.livejournal.com/3666035.html
This https://el-murid.livejournal.com/ has 4-5 more articles about the bombing, with names and photos of a few killed Russians.

A few more links are available if anyone is interested and/or can read in Russian. There are links in Kurdish but I can not read in that language.

Conspectus: American bombing and shelling killed anywhere between 200 and 600 Russian mercenaries and regular troops near Deir-Ez-Zor on Feb 7, on left bank of Euphrates. Russians tried to attack Kurdish forces, which had embedded American instructors. They called airstrikes and MRLS fire on Russians.

This type of attack has to be sanctioned on the highest level and could not have happened under Obama. To me, it is a pretty good proof that Trump is in no collusion with Russians. He is likely a narcissistic sociopath, but he is no Russian stooge.

If that's the reasoning, one should at least preface by saying that Trump and his associates are probably guilty and hiding stuff, but so was Hillary.

You're claiming some inside knowledge about details of the investigation, that's why I asked you to clarify them. Who else should I ask? Stop being so sensitive or don't make claims that people ask you to verify.

Isn't Mueller's investigation about looking for Russian collusion in the past elections? Didn't Trump run in the elections? Hasn't the overwhelming narrative been Russia helped Trump win.

Why do I always need to connect these dots?

Nope--was just stating that the evidence is out there so the statement I responded to is inaccurate. Not inside info at all. The indictment is public.

Since the indictments are public, then everyone knows what Manifort and Gates were indicted for, right?

Hint: it had NOTHING to do with Russian interference with the election, and was for events YEARS before.

Bonus questions, what was Flynn's position with the Trump campaign? What was he indicted for?

Second bonus questions, why was Flynn's sentencing date pushed back just the other day? If's he's definitely guilty of Russian collusion, why isn't he in prison yet?

Let's See, Manafort was busted for some shennanigans about taking money from Ukrainians, whom he had subcontracted to assist via Podesta Group. Manafort's been taking money from foreign groups (just like Clinton related lobbyist groups have) for decades upon decades now. Podesta Group "restated" their own Ukrainian lobbyist money many years after they took it and are now shutting down like the Clinton Foundation.

Flynn was entrapped by not wanting to tell the leak-heavy FBI about his meeting with Russian officials, which was part of his job description as part of an incoming Administration.

However, Flynn may not have been entrapped and may have deliberately caused a 18 USC 1001 charge and immunity for testimony for purposes yet to be revealed. Note that the Mueller-Flynn deal is months old yet and we haven't heard shit, and you bet your ass Mueller would have leaked ("Officials close to the Mueller Investigation") something by now if there was anything to leak.

Yep--and those indictments are expected to be amended with additional charges. Depends on how cooperative Gates and Manafort become.

anon_10ddb says

I'm really surprised you need me to answer these for you. The info is readily available. Flynn was "a top adviser and high-profile surrogate to Trump during his campaign, introducing the President-elect at rallies and serving as a top cheerleader on his hyper-active Twitter feed."

https://www.cnn.com/2016/11/17/politics/trump-offers-flynn-job-of-national-security-adviser/index.html
Obviously he became National Security Advisor as well.

"Prosecutors alleged Flynn “did willfully and knowingly make materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to FBI agents during a Jan. 24 interview about his conversations with the Russian ambassador. According to the allegations, Flynn falsely told FBI agents that he did not ask Kislyak to delay a vote on a pending United Nations Security Council resolution"

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/12/01/michael-flynn-charges-what-we-know-now/912909001/
(note--this was not a perjury trap. Flynn lied to try to hide his behavior)

anon_10ddb says
why was Flynn's sentencing date pushed back just the other day?


https://www.cnn.com/2018/01/31/politics/robert-mueller-michael-flynn/index.html
There you go. My guess is they are still evaluating his cooperation. Note--both sides wanted it pushed back.

Is it possible to get links from neutral sources that DON'T have severe TDS? Quoting links from the majorly biased, radical, left wing, liberal CNN really totally destroys the narrative, and nothing they publish can be taken as factual, fair and honest regarding any matter with Trump.

This is where Trump really makes his place in illustrated history books as the President that at no time limited himself to fact, fairness and honesty regarding any matter whether in office, in business, in golf, as a TV goblin, or even in marriage.

Most people don't know just how true this statement really is, but it is, and he will assure all that no truer statement has ever been made. In fact apostates who might argue with this can consider themselves unamerican, guilty of treason, and should be confined to their own septic system between brutal beatings.

Oops, there is a definition:

A mental dysfunction causing those detractors with hateful thoughts and feelings about Donald Trump to go unhinged.

Trump Derangement Syndrome
A condition of hysteria, anger, and fear of Donald Trump as a result of a failure by the afflicted to avail themselves of alternative media sources to combat the misrepresentations and often outright lies of the leftist media.
