If you cut and pasted their redactions to a blank doc, you could see the text.
A drop in the ocean.
Getting little attention with the shit down. Gee.
If only the legal system would stop paying attention, but unfortunately for trump no matter how much crap he throws against the wall and no matter how much of it actually sticks, the legal system churns on not giving a damn about those distractions.
The country is not hearing this today.
Yeah, but it won't change what happens in court and it won't change what Mueller's investigation turns up.
Right now trump is like a kid trying to hide his grades from his parents, it might work for awhile, but the school is still keeping track, and if the kid fails, his parents are going to eventually find out no matter what he does.
It does seem like potentially some of the biggest news yet in the investigation.
Meanwhile, looks like Rosenstein is leaving, so the investigation will be entirely up to Barr or whoever’s conformed.
Apparently they tried to redact by highlighting the text they tried to redact using black as the highlight color. Although the text appears covered up on the screen removing the highlighting reveals the text beneath.
Bad news about Rosenstein leaving. But from what I recalling hearing, after the new AG was sworn in, he could have taken back control of the investigation since he'd be "non-conflicted", so I guess it won't matter. My guess is the plan was for the new AG to fire Rosenstein and take it back, so Rosenstein is just resigning.
The question will be how much damage can a Trump loyalty oath guy do to Mueller ... I'm sure this was the number one question Trump was asking to his prospects.
I always look forward to the witty and revealing responses from the special counsels office. Let me see...oh here it is...
Those guys are always on.
Rosenstein wouldn't be leaving unless he thought his job was done.
It could just be that a new AG gets the right to pick his #2.
Could this have any connection to Cambridge Analytica?
Energy firm Lukoil, which is now on the US sanctions list and has been used as a vehicle of government influence, saw a presentation on the firm’s work in 2014. It began with a focus on voter suppression in Nigeria, and Cambridge Analytica also discussed “micro-targeting” individuals on social media during elections.
The revelations come at a time of intense US scrutiny of Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election, with 13 Russians criminally charged last month with interfering to help Donald Trump.
In Britain, concerns about Russian propaganda have been mounting, with the prime minister, Theresa May, recently attacking Russia for spreading fake news, accusing Moscow of attempts to “weaponise information” and influence polls.
Lukoil, Russia’s second-largest oil company, discussed with Cambridge Analytica the data company’s powerful social media marketing system, which was already being deployed for Republican Ted Cruz in the US presidential primaries and was later used to back Brexit and Trump.

Just because the head of Trump's campaign was swapping info with the Russian government, some of you guys are claiming there was collusion between Trump's campaign and the Russian government?
Boy, talk about a stretch.
There are several posters on here who would post exactly what you just did and actually mean it.
So you're saying that it was a mistake for the Obama state department to give Russia a 20% interest in US uranium production?
The Obama administration didn't give Russia anything. It did allow a Russian company to acquire a Canadian company and by the way, that Russian company still needs permission from the US government before it can export any uranium. Any the Russian company didn't acquire 20% of US uranium production. It acquired 20% of the ore still in the ground.
So what's your point? That your points prove that this agreement to allow a Russian company to own 20% of US uranium was a good decision?
You guys seem so concerned about the threat of Russia to not only our nation but to international order and the future of democracies but yet, just a few years ago your party made and signed off on this deal
I find it curious
