When you learn to read get back to us. Those arent my points. They are the points in the article that I linked to in the same post. Apparently you
didnt read it.
Just for you. For each point I am quoting YOUR WORDS, not the article
There was no inside source in the TRump campaign. The person they are referring to was the Australian diplomat
As stated in my first reply, the Australian Diplomat was not the 'inside source', Papadopolous was - he boasted to Alexander Downer that he knew that
the Russians had hacked Clintons emails. Papadopolous was a major campaign insider.
This revelation by Papadopoulos happened two months before the DNC emails were actually released by WikiLeaks on July 4, 2016. After the leaks
appeared, Australian officials alerted the Americans about Papadopoulos' remarks.
Papadopoulos knew about the theft BEFORE they were leaked - he knew about a Federal Crime and DID NOT REPORT IT. It took the Australian Government to
do the job the presumably 'patriotic' campaign officials should have done.
No shock here. Even today it is still debunked yet the left has deluded itself into thinking its not.
NO ONE (not from the Left, not from the Right, not from the Middle) has ever suggested that Fusion GPS verified anything or that such a verification
from Fusion GPS should count for a hill of beans.
The FACT is that much of the dossier HAS been verified by the FBI and other intelligence agencies. In fact, the whole reason that the FBI gave it any
credence at all was because much of it 'tracked' with the information they already had from other independent sources.
Of course... They needed a way to undermine this President
He wasn't President you silly person, and it was the Republicans that paid for the opposition research that produced the pee-pee tape allegations. Of
course, the existence of the tapes have not been publicly verified, but the 'rumor' did not start with the dossier, and frankly who cares what Trump
does in the privacy of his own bedroom?. This tape, while certainly the most salacious part of the dossier is hardly the most important part except
for the likelihood that if it does exist, the Russians are blackmailing the President of the United States.
Yeah no conflict of interest here. Why would the FBI share information with a person who is bringing them the information?
Where did the idea that the FBI was giving Steele information come from? Steele found evidence of ILLEGAL discussions between the Trump Campaign and
the Russian Government. He reported his findings to the FBI. If you have evidence of a Federal crime, you too are, by law, supposed to report it to
the FBI. I don't know what the protocol is for such informants but if you believe the movies, some informants are sometimes reimbursed for expenses
incurred in reporting it. I do not know if any payment was made and cannot judge whether any such payment was justified. But there is no suggestion
anywhere that the FBI was feeding information back to Steele. Period.
An interesting view to be sure and the answer depends on your political allegiance / hatred of Trump and the Trump derangement syndrome
of the left who thinks it is acceptable to destroy the country because they lost an election they rigged and wasted $1.2 billion dollars, violated
numerous federal / FEC laws all for Clinton.
The USA has interfered in other countries since the day it was founded. We went to war in 1812 in order to take over Canada. We have assassinated
democratically elected Presidents, engineered coups, encouraged uprisings, funded opposition candidates all over the world including in Russia. We
played a big hand in the Ukraine. Why would anybody be surprised that Russia would do the same? Are charges that the Clinton campaign has violated
federal laws is an extremely lame attempt to hide an outrageous cooperation between Trump and the Russians, the USA's main political opposition in the
world for the last 70 years (in the 1950's McCarthy would have put Trump on death row already) behind cheap lies.
Yeah nothing suspicious here at all...
Nope, nothing suspicious here about Don Jr. changing his story every 5 minutes. Nothing suspicious about anything in that meeting at all. Listen, I
got a great bridge I'd like to sell you, make me an offer.
Again not a shock they would lie about this. It seems to be the name of the game since Trump became the Republican nominee.
What lie? He declined to answer about his sources or his methods. That is why his sources trust him. Journalists don't reveal their sources. 'Spies'
don't reveal their sources. Private Investigators don't reveal their sources. Political Research Consultants don't reveal their sources. What do you
think? These people are playing a game? The Congress has to ask, maybe, but they don't expect an open answer to that kind of question and neither
should you. And by not answering the question he is not lying and that is a stupid, disingenuous, assertion.
Claiming that the opinions in the article are not yours and are not endorsed by you is a lie however. A direct, disingenuous, pointless lie - just
like all of Trump's direct, disingenuous, pointless lies.
Yup - setting up 2 meetings with various media outlets to push them to push the dossier
What? I thought the talking point was that 'collusion is not illegal'? Did I miss something here? To be honest I don't know what the Fusion GPS'
motivation for going public with it was, other than to inform people of things they needed to know to make up their minds. After all, what is
opposition research for? Why did the Trump Campaign encourage Russia to give the emails to Wikileaks?
Translation - Clinton broke the law and got caught and the FBI / FusionGPS / DNC / Clinton camp did all they could to change the
narrative to TRump. Just as we are seeing every day with the media.
Really drawing a long bow on this one. Your 'translation' is complete gibberish and has nothing at all to do with the quote. It is flabbergasting in
its falsity. Clinton broke no law - you know it - I know it - the FBI knows it - everyone knows it. And in case you forgot, those emails hacked from
the GOVERNMENT servers, NOT Clinton's private server. She wasn't the criminal here, she wasn't even the victim!
What was Feinstein thinking?
Who cares? Feinstein is NOT the story. The story is the worthlessness of the Grassley led hearings pushing an agenda to protect Trump at all costs.
The story is the outright lies Grassley has stated about the testimony given in closed session. The story is Grassley holding the closed sessions, in
spite of the expressed willingness of the witness to testify in open session, specifically so he can then lie about what that testimony was. Even
Darrel Issa wasn't that blatant.
Every point was a lie or a misdirection. Either you twisted the article to your agenda, or the article was bull feces from start to finish. I will not
read it, and you are a lousy shill. Return your royalty check.
