That smooth ride might now be ending.

The TRumpians will be happy. They can ignore all other media and confine themselves to a narrow one . Comparative info and critical thinking is dying.

Funny thing is, the US has been interfering in the elections of dozens foreign, sovereign states for at least 60+ years and now that the hens have com home to roost, they are all in a panic. Karma is a bitch, especially when you are one.

“In 2016, the Russian government engaged in an elaborate plot to interfere in an American election and undermine our democracy. Russia employed the same tactics it has used to influence elections around the world, from France and Germany to Ukraine, Montenegro, and beyond. Putin’s regime launched cyberattacks and spread disinformation with the goal of sowing chaos and weakening faith in our institutions. And while we have no evidence that these efforts affected the outcome of our election, I fear they succeeded in fueling political discord and dividing us from one another.

“The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s. The American people deserve to know all of the facts surrounding Russia’s ongoing efforts to subvert our democracy, which is why Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation must proceed unimpeded. Our nation’s elected officials, including the president, must stop looking at this investigation through the warped lens of politics and manufacturing partisan sideshows. If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him.”



Dan, aka Herbert, eat's piles of his own sh-t.

Yeah, but McCain is a LOOZAH!

LOOZAH!!

Well stated & Spot on. What I can't recall is how many times the US meddling yielded the CHOICE the US wanted.

Funny how Trump's main concern is "collusion" in the meddling as opposed t to the meddling itself.
Don't think he minds the meddling as it swayed the trupians to vote him in............. but he does n't want to be seen in the bad light of colluding with Russia.......as it reflects badly on HIM. (once again HE and HIMSELF is the main focus of his concerns. ........not the fact that another nation tampered with the electoral's minds to favor him. Winning was all that mattered.......regardless f HOW .. He will go to any lengths to protect himself and his image and his money. He is lukewarm at best about the actual running of a country. (except of course the tax cuts....... from which HE benefits too) Everything else is smoke and mirrors.

Seems that any SANE ,RATIONAL person IS concerned (afraid ) of Trump.

and rightly so. Authoritarian leaders are of grave concern to anyone that enjoys democracy..... even republic version of it.

Authoritarian is paying for fake intelligence and lying about it to FEDERAL JUDGES in order to try to commit a coup to unseat an elected president.

Just to turn a profit for globalist commienazis like george soros.

Democrats to push for House Intelligence Committee vote Monday on releasing rebuttal to GOP surveillance memo

Rep. Adam B. Schiff, the panel's top Democrat, is expected to offer a motion to release his party's 10-page response to a controversial Republican memo alleging surveillance abuses by the Justice Department.

Democrats have promised to give the document to the department for redactions.

If Republicans join Democrats in supporting its release, President Trump will have five days to block it from happening.

Fair is fair..

Wonder how long it will take to get past this ...and if they are able to actually achieve anything while this is going on..

The upside of this time wasting behavior........is that it brings Trump closer to the end of his reign.

Republicans distance themselves from Trump on GOP memo

In a sign of a growing rift within the House GOP, four members of the Intelligence Committee dismissed the idea pushed by President Trump and other Republicans that the controversial memo criticizing how the FBI handled elements of its Russia probe undermines the inquiry led by Robert Mueller III. Democrats on the panel are expected to push Monday for a vote to release their 10-page rebuttal to the GOP document.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/?wpis...evening&wpmm=1


CNN reporting that the motive behind the release of the MEMO.......was to discredit the investigation......(sources heard Trump say this )


really !!!

Unfortunately we have a brow beaten population who puts more stock in P.C. and couthness than in smarts, talent and the ability to do a job! Just look at Justin, he's such a nice polite boy with nice hair.

with due respect.......what is wrong with good manners, politeness, and a degree of political correctness??

Would rather that.......than crude, boorish, nasty . unintelligent and totally unsophisticated conduct in ANYONE.........let alone a leader. that is to be an example for a population. What is wrong with a degree of dignity ?? and basic courtesy?? You know basic good speaking manners??

But then America has never been sophisticated .......so it might be too much to ask for. Talking tough and crude is their style. Trump personifies that. Tact and diplomacy does not even factor in anymore.

That does not mean one has to mimic that behavior........ unless one likes it and admires it in their leaders.

Personally I would rather have the class and sophistication of the French leader as well as the German one.........and yes...... Trudeau too.

but each to his own.

Personally I am stunned just how low the US social standards have fallen. They were not that high to begin with. Not many (in reality ) outside the US are impressed with what they see and hear .. We won't even touch the lack of real intelligence in the upper echelons of the US gov.

Not a thing. It seems that a lot of people think they are an indication of qualifications to do with traits like intelligence and ability!

Yup it is so much more polite when Trudeau says , police remove these people if they won’t behave , well others say get those a holes the f out of here . Same result though .

So OB, you think President Trump and Americans generally are boorish? Give your head a shake. You obviously haven't traveled. How dare you pass judgment on them?

About you, most would say that your ignorance of the world is astounding. I would agree.

You have never spent any time in the Middle East, the Far East or Continental Europe. You have no concept of how the world functions.

Fair, polite and civilized rarely happen anywhere on earth. You are precisely the type that Kim Jong Un, Putin, and ME leaders want to deal with. Your facile view of politics would get everyone killed.

Go have a tea.

Or a nap.

BREAKING NEWS

A House committee voted to release the Democratic rebuttal to the Nunes memo. President Trump has five days to decide to block it or not.

Monday, February 5, 2018 6:27 PM EST



A decision from Mr. Trump to stop it could lead to an ugly standoff between the president, his top law enforcement and intelligence advisers and Democrats on Capitol Hill.

https://www.nytimes.com/?emc=na&eml_...t&vS=undefined


Will he or won't he?? After all he has declared himself exonerated.. like a good little pompous autocratic dotard.
