And the trolls rejoiced!

That is their evidence? I say let them go through with it, then hold our own news agencies to the same standards and consequences!!

So the Russians were kind of like the liberals on ATS pre-election with all their anti-Trump rhetoric?
OK, now I understand.




No I'm pretty sure they are saying that the Russians helped trump win the republican primary..

That it was not a political party they were against, but a candidate they were for..

AKA Donald Trump..

I wonder how stupid the political rats behind the hearings think most American people are.

That is a GREAT question. One I honestly think about from time to time. You can gauge their faith in our ignorance by the amount of pressure that is applied to the "alternative facts" department (alternative, counterculture news), such as ATS. For example, Alex Jones just released an apology for slandering Alefantis (heavy pressure).


I guess I can say with comfort that we are nothing but a big experiment to them.

The experiment took place long ago. They are only now, fine tuning the delivery and swallow process. It's up to the people to see through the facade and demand that our "elected" officials do the right thing. We, as the receivers, have more control over the propagators than we give ourselves credit for.

And how much money passed thru the Trump campaign to enrich the Russians contacts? This investigation is just getting started.

The rats will be jumping ship in the whitehouse soon enough!!

Basically what they are saying is, if I were to go into a chat room, tell a Russian that their candidate sucks, and he changes his mind, I therefore now influenced the election...... Sorry but they have got to do better than this. Sheer desperation from the left.

All the "testimony" today was just opinions with hardly any proof of anything as usual.

Who knows what to believe in this mess.

Corporate media isn't going anywhere. It's capitalism!

Trump can whine all he wants but it's business and don't forget Trump is a businessman not a politician.

This time however Trump is dealing with forces he knows nothing about. Arrogance will only take you so far....

Russia does not have democracy. Putin wins every time. Then Putin's successor wins every time. And so on. In Russia there are tsars. In America there are no kings.

As if CNN isn't fake news? I seem to recall CNN stated Trump was mocking the disabled journalist when it wasn't true.
