    ANY Russian interference in our elections should be a concern to everyone.

    “A classified briefing to lawmakers angered the president, who complained that Democrats would “weaponize” the disclosure.

    Intelligence officials warned House lawmakers last week that Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump re-elected,

    The day after the Feb. 13 briefing to lawmakers, Mr. Trump berated Joseph Maguire, the outgoing acting director of national intelligence, for allowing it to take place, “

    He fired his DNI for reporting this to the House Intelligence Committee and is appointing a partisan who is incompetent to do the job. His supporters enable a nation of lies even where those lies are against the national interest.

    Putin likes incompetent presidents, so yes, he prefers Trump over Bernie.

    If we were to buy your argument at face value, why do you think Putin's opposition largely opposes Trump, even to the point of supporting Sanders (although, unlike Putin's support of Trump, not illegally)?

    Trump’s DNI reported this to the House Intel Committee. Trump is lying to the country and Trump wants this interference and that it should be in the dark. So, when you post things like this and support Trump in his actions, you are an enabler and worthy of the scorn you richly deserve. Under the Gerasimov doctrine, these active measures are a method of warfare. So, your comment, like Trump’s behavior, aids the enemy’s efforts. You are Putin’s ally in his war. He is not playing games with me. I am very clear that this is wrong. He is enlisting Trump and you on his War.

    Ah, yes. Our intelligence services are all wrong because ... you don't want to believe it's possible. Is there anything more to it than that?

    I don't think this story is old enough for you to be making the type of assumptions you are making. Surely this was classified information, it got to the NYT awful fast with the typical sources (people close to the situation). If I had a Director of National Intelligence who let this get out I'd probably fire him too.

    I trust the NYT on this. They would have multiple sources. I am not making any assumptions. Trump is your leader. You own him.

    I'm not questioning Russia may be trying to interfere. What I am questioning is the motif. They put this country through 3 years of hell the last time, Putin knows what he is doing....Look at what he has started once again and tell me he isn't playing a game.

    You only strengthen my statements. I never said Obama is not my POTUS as much as I may have disagreed with him. Think about what you just said.

    I have no loyalty to Trump. He should have been removed from office for his abuses of power and outright crime. The people who enabled him to remain in office now own him. Not me.

    Lol The deep state isn't going to stop their nonsense until these crooks are shown they aren't above the law. I am sure another Stefan Halper type plant is behind the anonymous story they want to help Trump win. The same hoax they said with their original Russian Collusion hoax story.

    Right. Trump’s DNI was deep state. Trump seeks to appoint a lot of deep staters. Kelly. Sessions. McCarthy. Bolton. On and on it goes. Everyone who does something Trump doesn’t like.

    Russia hates the US and thinks Trump being in charge serves their interest

    Let me fill you in on something. There ain't no Santa Claus. There ain't no Easter Bunny, There ain't no Tooth fairy and there sure as hell ain't no Russian collusion.

    Putin is known for telegraphing his moves and whims well in advance, for the world to see. He's not one to keep things close to the vest or play mind games or anything like that.
