First it was what Flynn would testify to, then it was deutsch bank, and finally the wikileaks thing. All in a one week period. This isn't normal.

IMO these leaks are strategic. Either trump/Mueller are weeding out leakers or they're demoralizing/toying with the anti Trumpers. Sending them on an emotional Rollercoaster to wear them out.

Any other theories on how this could happen?

Were they they actually proven false or did trump just deny it and all the sheep baa baaa baaa right behind him????

Just like the Steele dossier wasn’t proven false, it just wasn’t verified..

That is like saying because OJ was found innocent, that means he didn’t do it.. and that isn’t even very similar because trump was never put on trial to be found innocent.

How about finding that out for yourself. Your reluctance to do that is very telling.

Yeah, it was a busy news week and some mistakes were made. The fact that you even know that mistakes were made means you believe the other media sources that revealed the mistakes.

You get that right? You didn't debunk them using your super secret insider sources. You didn't know that a mistake had been made because you were there. You know that there was an error because another media source told you there was an error and the media outlet that made the mistake admitted the mistake/walked it back.

This idea that all reporting is equal isn't just absurd, it's dangerous. It breaks down our ability to agree on even basic facts.

I think the media is just that invested in politics.

I think there is a clear bias and because of it they regularly have to fall on their own swords. Seems to be a sacrifice they are willing to make.

To assign the genius of a master plan to the President, or anyone working with/for him is asking for too much to believe. It really can be as simple as a bias media who no longer cares about its own standards.

That's true, they do all relate to the dem wet dream of Russian collusion or impeachment. But it's not really a master plan. This is how they detect leakers.

It's more like a rabid dog with tunnel vision.

That's pretty much what the media and people on the left have been ever since Trump won the election.

Get Trump! No mater the cost.

Wasn't it just a few months ago a poster on here said that it would be perfectly okay to lie and make up stuff just to get Trump removed from office?

When you're dealing with a mind set like that, there is no reasoning with them. The only thing they care about is the removal of Trump. All because they can't stand the idea that they lost the election, and that only they can be right about anything.

It's why the media is quick to throw things out to the public if they think it would make Trump look bad. Throw it against the wall and see if it sticks, no mater the cost, no mater if it's true or not.

Worse: all the patsy's here on ATS that regurgitate the crap the MSM puts out. Rushing to repeat what they say with a gleam in their eye......only to be shown just how foolish they are to also be so rabid and closed minded with tunnel vision.

It's sad really. So many intelligent people who've become so blinded in their hate of Trump that their critical thinking skills have gone out with window.

They were proven false and no, the Trump dossier is BS, you can quit peddling that, just like that whole russian email crap you pulled, convinced it must mean something, spamming every thread with it.

We know how you work.

Oh another one. Yeah Mueller is working with trump. Makes perfect sense because I know he's right on his doorstep now. Good thing they're in cahoots.

The dossier is not BS and Mueller is closing in on trump and you're panicking just like the Whitehouse is now. I even heard the idiot talking about a rigged system again tonight. Gee wonder why it's important for them to be pushing that again? Discredit or try to discredit Mueller or his team or both. There's only one group trump is still fooling and you are part of that group.
63% disapproval rate as of today. SIXTY THREE PERCENT DISAPPROVAL. Even his devoted base is shrinking.

so you believe that even though the mainstream media lies, that we should only listen to what they tell us if for nothing else so that we all agree with each other? i'm sorry, but that is insane. and yes i have caught pretty much all mainstream media, in the US, Canada, the UK, in fact almost every English, western news source (the only real exception being the media where the event took place), all telling almost the exact same lie. yet from what you say, that should not matter. that i should believe those lies, even when knowing the truth, so that i can agree to those basic facts (ie lies), that the bulk of main stream news was peddling?

you know the pathetic thing is that the reason non mainstream news is being believed over main stream news sources is actually due to the fact people have lost faith in the truthfulness within mainstream news sources. so the blame for people not even agreeing on basic facts as you put it, is rightfully belonging to mainstream news sources. and those mainstream news sources need to start being held accountable for their lies, half truths and twisted/spun stories. a good start would be for them to stop putting their opinions in the stories. stop with the news room banter and commentary. just the facts, and nothing but the facts. all we should hear when watching CNN,ABC, CNBC, etc, is this "event" happened", and "this" is what is "known" about it. no opinion of the event, no speculations about anything, no comments or banter between news readers at all. just the plain, unadulterated facts. also they need to give equal unbiased coverage of every news item, no picking and choosing what they report on. if they report on one killing, they must equally report on every killing. and not only should they be penalized, such as heavy, publicised fines when they have been incorrect or fail to report an event. but they should also spend twice as much time as they gave a misleading story, correcting that story. and in cases where their mistake has caused something like a riot. then THEY need to be held fully libel for things like damage and injury they have caused, possibly even facing criminal charges and jail time. another thing that could help would be to break up the news cartels. only letting a person or organisation broadcast/print news in small limited areas. but seriously i don't see that happening.

Hillary still has a 95% chance of winning!

Meanwhile trump is still selling out venues everywhere he goes. 15k in Pensacola today.

It would seem that way if you're uninformed.

Something big is going on, and a lot of people are not going to like it. Some people on this thread are not going to be happy. They can feel it to, but are still in denial. Lets see if they truly are intelligent. Lets see if they can set aside feelings and prejudice, and use logic alone.
