(Washington Post)   The CIA director falsely said an Intel report shows Russia didnt influence the outcome of the election. What are the odds that Friday morning Fox and Friends will repeat the lie and then Trump will tweet it?   ( washingtonpost.com) divider line

Even if that's true it misses the goddamn point. Attempted murder is still a crime.

Here's the thing, although I know that Russia's involvement in the election is indisputable, we will never know just how much their involvement lead to the election of Cheetolini.

As in, there will never be a hard number of voters that we'd be able to point at and say they'd have voted otherwise had it not been for the Russians.

And I'm afraid that that's how they're going to get away with it.

"U.S. officials have said they have seen no evidence that Russia tampered with voting systems on Election Day."

Of course not.

Fox will repeat it, Trump will tweet it, and it will have little if any impact on anything.

Nothing's going to discourage his inbred supporters. Conversely, nobody with a brain is going to start supporting him because of something they hear on Fox and Friends or a f*cking tweet they happen to read.

Isn't one voter enough? Isn't the attempt to us Russia to try to sway one voter enough???

What does the outcome have to do with it?

I mean, the outcome shouldn't matter! If you collude with Russia to become mayor of Houston and lose to some guy still because he ran a better campaign.

You are still a traitor.

Just because we don't typically go after our political opponents doesn't mean you can go in with our enemies and come out clean on the other side...
 
2017-10-20 07:48:11 AM  
Yeah, the Russians hacked everything else in the election process including voting machine maintenance companies but the one thing they didn't hack was the voting results.

Of course.

The Russians can hack the NSA hacking division but certainly not alter voting results.

I can use this logic.

No government research has disproved that Cache is the greatest human being ever.
Therefore government research clearly demonstrates that Cache is the greatest human being ever.

Let's play at this. The CIA says that Russia erased the evidence of Russian hacking of election systems.

The Agency then issued a statement contradicting the director.

If I were Pompeo, I'd sleep with the lights  on and decline proferred cups of tea.

This should be easily seen by exit polling vs. recorded votes.

I still think the worst thing Hillary did was concede.  If you really believe that he's as horrible as you say, why aren't you doing everything you can to keep him out of the office?

Does anybody believe that Gore was wrong to contest the election?  I mean, of the people who didn't hate him before he did that?

If I had any faith in the American electorate, I'd agree with you. However, this shouldn't have even been a contest to begin with, yet here we are.

And the GOP is not going to let their party get hit even harder by impeaching yet another one of their own. And they'll keep him on by any means necessary, even if that means using shady logic to not prosecute.

Does anybody believe that Gore was wrong to contest the election?  I mean, of the people who didn't hate him before he did that?


Gore was contesting a specific thing in a specific state. If HRC contested the validity of the entire election it would have put us into a crisis even worse than we have with Trump as president. There may well have been rioting in the streets from both sides. Her concession was the right thing to do for the country absent any non-speculative claim that actual vote counts were manipulated.

This is his latest tweet.
"Just out report: "United Kingdom crime rises 13% annually amid spread of Radical Islamic terror." Not good, we must keep America safe! "
What does it even mean?
Is he saying that terrorists are criminals, or vice versa?

So shady Moscow visits
http://www.newsweek.com/mike-pompeo-m​o​scow-visit-what-cia-director-may-have-​discussed-russia-655241

And prior "concerns" that the current head of the CIA can not be trusted and might be a Russian asset.
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/na​t​ionworld/ct-cia-mike-pompeo-russia-inv​estigation-20170824-story.html

Now this. Russia has successfully taken over the US executive branch, the head(s) of us local law enforcement and foreign intelligence. Successfully shielded itself using the might of the US congress to impeded the investigation. Most importantly, Russia now has a voice in shaping our Judicial branch for generations.

For as much money as the military industrial complex has chewed the us budget for generations, Russia bought it all for only thousands of dollars investment, keyboard trolls, and weak willed traitors.

Killed while defending the very Russian uranium mines that Russia draws the very material for the nuclear weapons or uses to menace the West.

Yes.  Killed while defending the very limiting reagent of Russia's nuclear program.

It is literally that bad.  So bad that they had to rely on a private contractor to get the survivors out because they did not want regional commanders to know that they were helping Russia advance the development of they're nuclear stockpile.

Treason.  Treason.  Treason.

Motherfarking Russia. Motherfarking Russia is proven to be farking with our elections and our unity as a country. And there's barely any outrage. Of all the crazy stuff that's happened I'm the last 18 months this is the most baffling.

Isn't that the deal that was approved by 13 different Republicans?  Why do you ignore that part?  All one of them had to do was say 'no'. And Uranium 1 would have been off the table.

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

CSB: I was a court witness in a traffic accident case and the defence attorney asked if I could describe the driver. I answered that I could not see the driver (it was night) and so I could not describe him. The lawyer then tried to discredit me by spinning as if I had testified that there was no driver in the car. I think I could actually hear the judge's eyes rolling.

Let's not scream the sky is falling, just yet.

It would invalidate any faith in electronic voting and tabulation systems, true.

Paper ballots are still a thing. Just got mine yesterday for Colorado's election.
