The firm is touted for pioneering the use of technology in political campaigns, and it represents GOP candidates nationwide. The firm's website said one of its principles was formerly associated with a firm operated by Paul Manafort, who is the former Trump campaign manager whose business dealings with Russia are under intense scrutiny.


As in the other thread, this is a stretch.

"formerly associated with a firm operated by."

More info about Crowdstrike, in 2013 they received a $30Mil investment from Warburg Pincus, whose NY president was/is Timothy Geithner, who was Obama's Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

edit - My bad they (Crowedstrike) actually received $100Mil from Warburg Pincus in 2015.

Weird how these claims of Russian hacking originate from a company that received monetary support from a company whose president is one of Obama's appointees

Connections - connections - connections... That's how it works right???

He must be a little rattled about the whole thing. He just hired a DC law firm to help him deny any connection to Russia.

Trump Hires Law Firm to Fight Suggestions of Russia Business Ties

Spicey announced it.


"The president, obviously, was aware of Senator Graham's suggestion after he made it today and he's fine with that. He has no business in Russia. He has no connections to Russia. So he welcomes that," Spicer said. "In fact, he is already charged a leading law firm in Washington, D.C., to send a certified letter to Senator Graham to that point that he has no connections to Russia," Spicer said.

Trump been swimming with sharks.

Do you think there's the possibility that this will end his stay in the white house?

Someone finally got Spicer out of the bushes and got him to take his meds? Wow, that was quick.

He's serious about this certified letter crap. Holy cow. You can't make this up.

Just so everyone is on the same page. Two threads are sharing similar info.

Dennis Whitfield, Senior Advisor Of FBI-Raided Strategic Campaign Group, Linked To Paul Manafort, Roger Stone


Stone and Manafort, two of President Donald Trump’s former senior advisors who are now being investigated by the FBI for possible collusions with Russia during the 2016 presidential election campaign, are the co-founders of Black, Manafort, Stone and Kelly, the political consulting firm where Whitfield served as a the director in the later part of his career


Also, even if the raid had anything remotely to do with the Russian investigation, the FBI would never say so. Intelligence groups can pretty much manipulate headlines at will in regards to security issues.

Such information is protected from public disclosure, in accordance with current law and Department of Justice and FBI policy. This policy preserves the integrity of the investigation and the privacy of individuals involved in the investigation prior to any public charging for violations of the law. It also serves to protect the rights of people not yet charged with a crime.

We'll have to wait until the FBI is done.

I think it speaks volumes to the situation Trump is in when he as President needs to hire a law firm to write a letter to a Senator. I understand why his support base is trying to stay steadfast, but let's be real; POTUS tweets random bull snip on a near nightly basis, he's more worried about how he looks for the cameras than about what he's doing for the American people, he openly attacks media outlets who criticize him... The list goes on.

If the FBI finds some hard evidence linking any of his staff to Russia you can bet there will be legal action against him. We just have to allow the FBI to do their thing.

What do the Liberals have against the russians in the first place? They apparently want and love communism but they hate Russia the birthplace of communism. This makes no sense. What's up with that?


Liberals don't want communism. Communists want Communism. Communists don't want Despotic Communism (USSR).

Why is the Right terrified their culture will vanish if a little Mexican girl is granted citizenship as an adult because her parents brought her here illegally when she had no choice, yet are perfectly okay with a foreign government influencing our election process?

I forget the name of the fallacy you're bringing up...

The right is not okay with foreign involvement in our election process. They simply have no proof it actually happened.

Link an indictment, a specific charge of a proven crime, or stop with the hyperbole.

I really don't care if Trump is guilty, I'm not liberal nor am I conservative - so I'm not on a witch hunt, nor am I on the defensive for him.

They attempted to, unless you have some proof no one else has seen?
Please post that proof.

The authors detail how Clinton went out of her way to pass blame for her stunning loss on “Comey and Russia.” “She wants to make sure all these narratives get spun the right way,” a longtime Clinton confidant is quoted as saying. The book further highlights how Clinton’s Russia-blame-game was a plan hatched by senior campaign staffers John Podesta and Robby Mook, less than “within twenty-four hours” after she conceded: That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.


So now Podesta is spinning this.

So hiring a lawyer, to respond to an investigation is now somehow an admission of guilt to you? Seriously do you ever read the stuff you post? So are you suggesting anyone who has ever hired a lawyer to write a legal letter is Guilty of something?

You are seriously deranged.

No - he is not worried how he looks, if he was concerned about his image he would only read pre-canned speeches written by somebody else - like Obama. What you get from Trump is Trump, warts and all, not some media manufactured fake.

Yes he attacks people that attack him, is it always the best tactic - No, but it has worked out for him far more often than not. He is being attacked more than any person ever - of course that pisses him off when 95% of the attacks are lies, exaggerations or psych warfare. A normal person would resign or be co-opted by his detractors, that is not going to happen with Trump - he likes the fight which pisses you haters off even more - too bad.

Actually Trump is not under investigation, if they find something funky with his staff - then the staff member gets in trouble not him. I love how all you Trump haters are trying to warp reality to suit your desire for the downfall of Trump - it just makes you look pathetic.

Where does liberalism end and socialism begin? Where does Socialism end and communism begin?

A “liberal” agenda can only succeed if government gets bigger and continues to grow and the wealth that belongs to others is systematically confiscated and redistributed to pay for that expansion.

The problem is, once that wealth confiscation begins, where does it end? Liberalism, as a political ideology, is open-ended.

Which means it’s really stealth-socialism. As liberals go about the business of making everything as “fair” as they see fit, what is the upper limit of that “fairness”?

The dirty little secret of liberalism is that it can only work if it comes out of the closet and goes full-blown communism. Otherwise, the objectives of liberalism – “fairness”, forced equality, a meritless mediocracy, limitations on free speech and free thought, and above all, compliance and conformity to the State – can never be fully realized.



Why is the Right terrified their culture will vanish if a little Mexican girl is granted citizenship as an adult because her parents brought her here illegally when she had no choice, yet are perfectly okay with a foreign government influencing our election process?


What other Federal laws should we ignore? I’d like to ignore laws about a great many things. I can’t speak for “the Right”, but I’m not “terrified” our culture will vanish. That pretty much happened before I was born, but that’s another subject. I just want to live in a nation of laws and borders that apply to everyone equally.

In your example, the child’s condition is a direct result of her parents’ law-breaking. Terrified or not, she should be humanely deported along with her family back to their homeland. Life is not fair, it cannot be made fair by government (liberalism), and any “fairness” that might have once existed between individuals ended at birth.

And finally, no, I’m not “OK” with a foreign nation meddling in our national elections. Neither are any Republicans out there. You cannot provide even one example of a Republican – even President Trump himself, who approves of any foreign nation attempting to influence our elections.

The bottom line is, Russia or no Russia, all the evidence points to the fact that Bill Clinton’s wife lost all on her own. She was a lousy candidate with a ton of baggage, was under multiple FBI investigations, and is the decades-long defender and enabler of a proven serial sexual predator. My guess is that many folks simply couldn't get past all that.

Great OP!

Your frustration trying to get through to the programmed is noted.

Patience...they'll understand one day and be very sorry they didn't listen to folks like you.



Here is some more stuff on Trump and Russia one rarely hears about.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation cannot tell us what we need to know about Donald Trump’s contacts with Russia. Why? Because doing so would jeopardize a long-running, ultra-sensitive operation targeting mobsters tied to Russian President Vladimir Putin — and to Trump.

I'm not a Trump hater nor am I trying to warp reality.

I'm following this story with increasing interest.

Why would Trump have surrounded himself with people like Carter Page, Paul Manafort and Roger Stone?

He was swimming with the sharks.

The problem here is that the GOP congress will let Trump dam near get away with murder.

The only way Trump can be dealt with if its found he has done something illegal is impeachment.


Or the 25th amendment where the VP and his close advisors get together and invoke it and retire Trump. This angle is very unlikely.


So the only hope if Trump is exposed as a criminal is impeachment and that wont happen with a republican congress and senate.

The Republican Congress didn't impeach failed dirbag and proven liar Obama for his numerous misdeeds -- chief among them, gross incompetence.

What would they impeach Trump for?
