    It's simply unfathomable to me that the Right posters here can summarily dismiss the work of professional institutions as "fake". Institutions that employ highly educated folks that have spent decades in their fields, with invaluable experience in what they do, and have had to justify their work over those decades with facts. And yet, all just painted with this childish accusation of "fake"-- only now, because the facts presented by these professionals simply don't support what they want to believe. Sad.

    Maybe because they have not exactly been justifying their work with "facts". I think someone stated in another thread something like 70 to 90% was true and that came from a liberal publication, lol facts.

    another "someone said" fact. LOL

    So every professional organization from the CIA, and FBI, etc. as well as all the news sources you don't approve of have a secret web of lies all aimed at a concerted effort to take your guy Trump down.
    Narcissistic at best.
    More like wholly ridiculous.

    My favorite Obama quote: "there's a whole lot of folks out there that are proud of their ignorance"

    No, we don’t.

    The FBI had open investigations on both candidates and only spoke about Hillary’s.

    The Russian lawyer who attended the infamous Trump Tower meeting denied interacting with the founder of Trump dossier research firm Fusion GPS that same day, in direct contradiction to what the opposition researcher told Congress last month.

    Natalia Veselnitskaya told the Senate Judiciary Committee in written testimony submitted last month that she did not have contact with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson on the day of the June 9, 2016 Trump Tower meeting.

    “Did you have contact with Glenn Simpson on June 8, 9, or 10, 2016?” reads one of the 94 questions posed to Veselnitskaya by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    “No, there had been no contacts with him on [sic] specified dates,” Veselnitskaya said in her written testimony, which was submitted electronically on Nov. 20 and published on Tuesday by NBC News.

    -------------------------------------------

    Already catching the Clinton/DNC financed Fusion GPS players not getting their stories straight to Congress. This Russian lawyer Fusion GPS plant denied meeting Glenn Simpson when she met him just before and after that Trump tower meeting.

    Read the original source and what is in the actual transcript. It clearly points this out. Clinton financed Fusion GPS was using Russian plant friends of theirs to advance their fake news narrative. Then they were "shocked" when told she did that. lol

    Except that they never publicized the Dossier before the election-- when it might have helped them with their supposed illicit goals. So, the suggestion that this was aclinton plot to advance fake news about Trump is notr grounded in reality.

    BS Fusion GPS/Steele and the FBI had been feeding the media since September 2016 wanting them to report on it and a few places did report some of the initial stuff on Carter Page accusations etc.

    U.S. intelligence officials are seeking to determine whether an American businessman identified by Donald Trump as one of his foreign policy advisers has opened up private communications with senior Russian officials — including talks about the possible lifting of economic sanctions if the Republican nominee becomes president, according to multiple sources who have been briefed on the issue.


    The activities of Trump adviser Carter Page, who has extensive business interests in Russia, have been discussed with senior members of Congress during recent briefings about suspected efforts by Moscow to influence the presidential election, the sources said. After one of those briefings, Senate minority leader Harry Reid wrote FBI Director James Comey, citing reports of meetings between a Trump adviser (a reference to Page) and “high ranking sanctioned individuals” in Moscow over the summer as evidence of “significant and disturbing ties” between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin that needed to be investigated by the bureau.

    which is why HRC did not release it. She could have released it on her own since she paid for it. By 9-16, there already was an investigation.

    lol Yep she is going to release it saying she funded the research etc. when she knew it was fake news and the crooked FBI was using it. Better to let Steele and her friends at the FBI feed crap to the press. I am shocked the joke lefty media didn't report the whole dossier on the front page but they probably figured she was going to win for sure.

    It was not released by anybody before the election. It was no use to her after the election. Steele sand her friends did not feed it to the press before the election. Your conspiracy theory is underwhelming, given that the dossier was useless to HRC after the election.

    You are full of it as usual. Some media just refused to report on the real crazy pee pee stuff until later.

    DAVID CORN OCT. 31, 2016

    On Sunday, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid upped the ante. He sent Comey a fiery letter saying the FBI chief may have broken the law and pointed to a potentially greater controversy: “In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government…The public has a right to know this information.”

    Reid’s missive set off a burst of speculation on Twitter and elsewhere. What was he referring to regarding the Republican presidential nominee? At the end of August, Reid had written to Comey and demanded an investigation of the “connections between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign,” and in that letter he indirectly referred to Carter Page, an American businessman cited by Trump as one of his foreign policy advisers, who had financial ties to Russia and had recently visited Moscow. Last month, Yahoo News reported that US intelligence officials were probing the links between Page and senior Russian officials. (Page has called accusations against him “garbage.”) On Monday, NBC News reported that the FBI has mounted a preliminary inquiry into the foreign business ties of Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chief. But Reid’s recent note hinted at more than the Page or Manafort affairs. And a former senior intelligence officer for a Western country who specialized in Russian counterintelligence tells Mother Jonesthat in recent months he provided the bureau with memos, based on his recent interactions with Russian sources, contending the Russian government has for years tried to co-opt and assist Trump—and that the FBI requested more information from him.

    right from what Fusion GPS testified below:

    “This is something of huge significance, way above party politics,” the former intelligence officer says. “I think [Trump’s] own party should be aware of this stuff as well.

    Does this mean the FBI is investigating whether Russian intelligence has attempted to develop a secret relationship with Trump or cultivate him as an asset? Was the former intelligence officer and his material deemed credible or not? An FBI spokeswoman says, “Normally, we don’t talk about whether we are investigating anything.” But a senior US government official not involved in this case but familiar with the former spy tells Mother Jones that he has been a credible source with a proven record of providing reliable, sensitive, and important information to the US government.

    And as usual, you cannot comprehend what you read--either what I wrote or what was written. Harry Reid's letter does not refer to the Steele memos. We now know that the FBI had information from sources independent of the Steele memos before Reid wrote the letter. And,the story shows that Hilary Clinton did not release the memos. What it shows is that Harry Reid was upset that Comey was not releasing the information he had.
