This is the only card they have to play. Frayed on the edges and dog eared on the corners but they still keep throwing in on the pile.

Is Mueller investigating his comb-over and hair dye as possible crimes that were meant to "influence" the election, now?


You're trying to say his comb-over is criminal?

I agree.

Whats worse - rigging polls to sway opinions or rigging a FISA court warrant to spy on a US POTUS candidate?

ETA: Like this clearly rigged P.O.S poll?

Is online poll rigging a crime? (I'm asking this seriously... I can't imagine how it could be and, if it was, I'd think we'd have seen lawsuits over crap like American Idol long before now.)


One might say that any intentional misrepresentation of the truth in order to receive personal gain is fraud.

An example application of the ethical concept that 'misrepresentation of facts to the public' is illegal, would be the way the law treats payola.

None the less, this represents yet another allegation of a direct attempt by Donald Trump to interfere in the normal process of the 2016 electoral campaign.

I wonder what's worse, rigging a CNBC poll or rigging the DNC primaries???

Anyone have a thought?

LOOK These guys obviously cheated right from the start. Before they even got on that escalator they were already cheating.
The most disgusting president ever... complete slime.

Although Gauger said Cohen never paid him the full promised amount, Cohen did ask the Trump Organization in January 2017 to reimburse him $50,000 for "tech services,"


Michael Cohen sounds like a man who has lost it. That article in no way, shape, or form, implicated Trump.

If you work for a company and you're in charge of paying vendors for incidental services, and you go to the company and ask for $50,000 to reimburse a vendor for tech services, what's the big deal? In large organizations, $50,000 for technical services would not be unusual.

I have a feeling Cohen may have been running a "side" business of his own, unbeknownst to Trump. Trump knows now. Bye bye, Michael.

So Cohen paid some fella to stack the poll at a vastly Republican leaning website so the numbers would favor Trump...The person apparently wasn't savvy enough to do the work and complained because he received only half the payment, for his failure...And of course Trump won the poll anyway because,,,,,Drudge...

And this information came from Mr. Honest himself, Cohen...Could someone have paid Cohen to do whatever he could to take Trump down???

Still brings us back to the other polls, if a charge is levied here how can they not investigate all the other polls that showed Hillary a lock to win even when the EC votes were showing it was either a dead heat or in trumps favor.


Attempt to influence an election is still occurring in either case.



Did Clinton pay to have the poll skewed in her favor. lIke I said...intent. Investigate away I say even though Clinton is gone and powerless as it stands now. Why hasn't trump indited her if he thinks she is guilty of a crime; trump owns the AG.


He sure uses the "crooked Hillary" BS to keep his base riled up. Clever ploy that....




where did I say Clinton beyond the polls showing her winning, I never said she paid for them to lie... but someone was lying or she would have won.

If a fake poll deserves a criminal charge it should be illegal for the fake polls that showed hillary winning in a landslide as well as any poll cohen rigged.

I dont care who was paying it, it bothers me seeing "justice" pointed in 1 direction when evidence shows both sides were doing the same thing.
The big difference seems to be who had people supporting them in the FBI and the DOJ, are getting a pass while the others are not.

In hindsight, was that the only poll that was accurate?



Maybe.

The article says they failed to influence them, even after the attempts, so it remains that it could have been accurate.

An attempt is still conspiracy to commit a crime.


Its that actually a crime?

Ah, i see... so the actual story is that potentially the Trump campaign paid a firm to create a bot to vote multiple times for Trump in a poll. OK. Right then. Tell me again what is the conspiracy and what is illegal?

Good lord, the MSM and Trump haters are very desperate.

I've been waiting since I read about this to see how the lunatics here would spin a poll bot into a national crisis. I've not been disappointed.

Trying to manipulate an online meaningless poll...
TREASON, CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS, WWIII, TO THE GALLOWS!

At this stage we can assume anything the right wing rages about they are guilty of.

WITCH-HUNT!! = Legit Investigation.

RIGGED POLLS!! = We hired a firm to rig the polls.

NO COLLUSION!! = Chief of the campaign had secret meetings with Russian agents.

VOTER FRAUD!! = NC GOP hiring a man to fake and destroy ballots.

NO ONE FROM THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN TALKED WITH RUSSIANS! = Almost everyone met with Russians and lied about it.

BILL CLINTON HAD AN AFFAIR! = Trump assaulted women and banged porn actresses and paid to cover it up.

FAKE NEWS! = We sell it every day. welcome to "alternative facts".

On and on it goes!

Honestly it makes me a little uncomfortable when President Trump strangely goes off about women with duck tape across their mouths being abducted and brought across the border??

Trump keeps mentioning taped-up women at the border. Experts have no idea what he is talking about
www.washingtonpost.com...

Remember the polls showing Clinton favored to win 97% to Trump's 3% chance? Who rigged that one? Hypocrisy is definitely contagious I see you already unwittingly agree.
