(The New York Times)   U.S. Intelligence had proof that Putin personally ordered the hacking of the 2016 election to boost Trump -- and they personally delivered that proof to Trump TWO WEEKS BEFORE INAUGURATION   ( nytimes.com) divider line

Gentlemen, if you haven't been grooming your junk, you might want to get on that, STAT!  We're almost there.

There's your goddamn collusion. Or "colusion", or coordination, or whatever legalese term the lawyers want to attach to it.

Either way, the bottom line is clear: The President of the United States is fully aware of the attack on our election system, who ordered it, who carried it out, and for what purpose.  And even before he took the oath of office, his every word and action have been in service to covering all of it up.

Nearly 20 years ago, this country's government impeached a President for lying about a blowjob.  If it cannot find the farking balls to impeach a third president for covering up what is nothing short of a cyber terrorist attack on the country that they are charged with leading, then they should all resign in disgrace.

And if they won't resign, then they should be run out of town on a rail -- after they're tarred, feathered, and paraded down Pennsylvania Avenue to Game of Thrones level cries of "SHAME".

The ODNI announced publicly that they had proof of Putin's direct order right around the same time (January 2017). I remember Comey specifically referencing it in his post-firing testimony to the SSCI, and again in his book. And I think either McCabe, Rosenstein (or both) have mentioned it in public Congressional testimonies as well.

A Newsflash this is not.

That Trump knew exactly who hacked us before the inauguration is breaking news, particularly since he has denied it and lied about it ever since.

This is the first news story that's outright SAID IN PUBLIC that Trump was told and when.  Right after the Treason Cheeto has been intimate with Little Vladdy and told all of us multiple times aobut how it "might be someone else" etc.

It's a damn NEWS FLASH all right.  Not that the intelligence community knew, but that TRUMP WAS TOLD BEFORE THE INAGURATION.

Oh, and that also means he had two weeks to go "oh shiat, this isn't right" and to refuse to be inaugurated.

Again, the Treason Cheeto was told TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE INAUGURATION that Vladimir Putin interfered in the election.

He put his hand on a Bible and swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution TWO WEEKS LATER.

Then he's lied about who did it and covered for Putin ever since.

There can be no other action than to impeach him, because he's violated his oath of office from BEFORE DAY ONE.

I had predicted sometime last year, that the Republicans would need to Impeach President Dumbass before the mid-terms unless they wanted the Democrats to do a clean sweep of Congress, and get the the historic credit for removing this choad from power.

Folks, I'm not saying it's not important. It is. Obviously, blatantly, and critically important.

But this was literally in the public version of the January 2017 ODNI report (and that's just the stuff that us nobodies get to read, it doesn't even contain the juicy TS/SCI details). And then Comey referenced having briefed Trump on it prior to the inauguration during his post-firing appearance before the Senate Intelligence Committee. And then (again, IIRC) either McCabe, Rosenstein, or both referenced it in public testimony to Congress. And then Comey talked about having personally briefed Trump in January 2017 on the subject.

This was absolutely Breaking News--in January 2017. But (and really, this is all I'm getting at) it's not a NEWSFLASH in July 2018. It's bad. It's damning. There should be civil unrest. But it's been public knowledge for a year and a half.

Somehow this all feels bigger than 9/11 right now.  I think we might be on the verge of something bigger than anyone on this planet can control.

I am terrified that the dominos are falling so swiftly, so many towers made of these fragile bastards are going to collapse and take everything out around them, and the end results are going to be world changing.  This is some new era of aggression that we don't know how to even respond to just yet.  Historically, we know the response when governments end up in hostile standoffs like this.  The Russian aggression will not farking stand, or this country is done along with everything it stood for once.

I have never been more anxious or uncomfortable with the stage or world politics than I do now, but I haven't been alive that long.
I have been alive long enough to compare it to the only thing this severe I have known, and at least we had a defined enemy then, and a very blatant cause to rally around.

This one is going to break the world alliances and politics as we have known them, and I just hope to farking god we end up as being on the side of the good guys when the dust settles.

The rule of law is the only thing that can save us from going over the edge, right now the outlook is not optimistic.

Every single political member of this administration needs to go and they need to be barred from working in any capacity in the government.

Also, if they go on tv to be pundits, it should be legal for anyone to walk up to them in public and slap them as farking hard as they can, then spit in their eye.

I'm lucky because I'm Canadian and I can watch this shiat show from a distance.  Except consequences for Canada could be bloody awful - maybe worse than the US.  The expression is that if the US sneezes, Canada gets the cold.

We are still dealing with this because Ford pardoned Nixon; had we hanged the dirty rats in that administration we would not have this problem. Mainly because Nixon's farkers are STILL HERE and STILL DOING THIS shiat.

This has to have severe consequences for the lot of them. We need to let the next generation of Republican politicians know that nobody is above the law.

GREAT tweet thread that unpacks TFA, courtesy of the ever-wise HoarseWhisperer:


I've always had faith that our democracy would apply something like Newton's Third Law to Trump.


An equal but opposite reaction.

Trump committed treason in Helsinki.

Now the machinery of patriotism is biting back.
