@Thid Barker - Victor, ID" You are losing elections because
Americans are rejecting your ideology, not because of the Russians!"Last time I checked the majority of Americans did not vote for Trump.Also, it was "Fake News" stories that lead a man to a Pizza
parlor with a gun to investigate and put to a stop a non-existent child porn
ring. Likely this story was put out there by Russian trolls. If their fake
stories are enough to cause someone to show up at a pizza joint with a gun, then
it is not unreasonable to assume that these same fake stories influenced people
to not vote for HRC, and/or vote for DJT.Can I paint you a more
An answer to a prayer. He had lost his way and his objectivity. They need an
independent investigation because both parties have lost their objectivity and
the American people deserve the truth whatever it is.
Going to the Whitehouse to tell the President about documents received from the
Whitehouse was bizarre.
@Thid Barker"Please expain how the Russians changed ballots or
influence your vote or anyone's vote! Magic, perhaps?"How
many times did Trump, his campaign, his family, his surrogates, and supporters
like yourself talk about the Wikileaks releases? Why was the DNC and Clinton
team specifically targeted by Russian hackers and the data released by
Wikileaks? Everyone wouldn't be doing that stuff if they didn't think
it'd influence anyone's vote. It's pretty logical to conclude
that the hacking influenced some number of peoples' votes because all of
them from Trump supporters to his campaign to Assange to the hackers think the
information in the hacked Wikileaks dumps was relevant and important so they all
think it influenced some number of votes.
@ Marxist: To use your logic, if I read anything written or said by anyone about
my candidate that I don't like or agree with, that is them interfering with
the election? Really? And the left never said anything negative about President
Trump did they? Dang those lefties, they interfered with the election! Dang
@Thid "Please expain how the Russians changed ballots or influence your
vote or anyone's vote! Magic, perhap? "No, let me explain.
I use a variety of mass personal media. During the election that media,
especially Facebook, were full of stories about candidates, their advisers. and
what they were doing. Lots of it was anti-Hillary. Lots of it was anti-Hillary
in support of Bernie Sanders (my candidate). Some of it was true, much of it
was manufactured by Russia which flooded the media with specious stories. I
hate to admit it, but I swallowed some of this stuff. Also, note
that the Russian stream was in sync with the Trump campaign all the way.
That's how Russia influenced the election, and not just on the presidential
@ModerateYou are right. I forgot who I was dealing with. Obama was always
clueless about everything, telling us he just saw something on the news himself.
It was like he was always out of the loop on everything.So, let me
see. It was all a hobby of Susan Rice to read and catalog this stuff. Maybe she
was writing a book. How do you like that idea?Or maybe she shared it
with the other half of Obama;s brain - Valerie Jarrett. And Valerie told
Podesta. And Podesta leaked it to the press.You are correct; Obama
was insulated.Speaking of insulated, Rice was hired by the White
House to provide immunity. Ms. Talking Points was in real trouble and Obama gave
her shelter in National Security.As for Snowden, hold that thought.
We will likely need lots of prison cells for all those classified leakers out
Russian subverted the election just like Benghazi was caused by a video.
...as Utah's Rep. Chris Stewart is also member of this House Intel
Committee as well, I have repeatedly asked for his views and insight.MY representative just ignores me - his constituent -- he is supposed to
WORK for me, but it seems he works for Donald Trump...
Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz - and his Do Not investigate Donald Trump ever, Hear
no Evil, See no Evil -- suffocant - should be next to go! ...
Nunes stepping aside "temporarily" adds a new wrinkle to the House
Intelligence Committee investigation into Russian interference into the 2016
election:Will Nunes clear himself quickly enough to get back to
distracting and tainting the investigation again?I think he is glad
to get away, now that his own actions are scrutinized. Showing classified
information to a subject under investigation, bypassing proper channels, is
hardly ethical.On Nov 11, 2016 Nunes' web site posted a press
release with this statement: “Today I was honored to have been named to
the executive committee of President-elect Donald Trump's transition team.
In this role, I will advise President-elect Trump on the appointments of his
Cabinet members and on appointments to other top positions in the new
administration."Given that the investigation is into the
contacts between President Trump's election and transition teams and the
Russians, Nunes should have recused himself from the beginning!
Finally! Nunes hung on as long as he could to simply delay the investigation.
With three investigations going on -- FBI, Senate, and House -- this should get
the full attention it needs without any investigators going to the White House
to brief Trump on unfolding findings. The circumstantial evidence
is compelling. Why did Trump dismiss initial reports about Russian interference
in the election early on? Why did Trump support Putin and Russia so much
throughout the campaign? Why? One can conclude that he and his men were aware
and perhaps involved in Russia's interference -- that is what the issue is.
All the talk about Rice "unmasking" Trump's men
engaging with the Russians as somehow illegal don't understand the role of
a National Security Advisor -- its part of the job to see who is talking with
the nation's enemies. Trump's days are numbered. His GOP
allies in Congress know this.
Yuge Opportunity Here "We know from Susan Rice that the people were
unmasked, tracked and monitored..."We know from the movie
"Snowden" that people were unmasked and tracked.You didn't
want to believe the message then, because it was from Hollywood."...by the oval office"No evidence of this. At all. Even Fox
News concedes this.President Trump owes President Obama an apology.
It's about time, dude. You even mentioned the two words - "politically
motivated" - that describe your own "secretive" and partisan actions
thus far. The last time you said and did something bipartisan was at the end of
the Comey hearing about a "dark cloud" hanging over the Trump
administration. After that the "dark cloud" has been following you
around, like going to the WH by yourself, cancelling committee meetings on the
Russian probe, etc. Sometimes I wonder if these politicians - including the
president - think that the positions they hold grant them unfettered freedom,
especially when they do it with glaring audacity.
@ Utefan: This is entirely about politics! This is the last hope for the
Democratic party that has been losing elections all over America for the last 10
years! This is the democrat's last gasp; show how the election was
"stolen" by the Russians! Please expain how the Russians changed ballots
or influence your vote or anyone's vote! Magic, perhap? Come on democrats,
own up to your own failures and stop blaming Russians, the electoral college,
the GOP or magic! You are losing elections because Americans are rejecting your
ideology, not because of the Russians! You are becoming the laughing stock of
No one should disagree that this investigation should be non-partisan period.
Any other approach is dishonest and ugly.The truth, is the truth, is
Americans can see what's going on here. This Trump-bashing is as absurd as
Bush Sr. negotiating with the Ayatollah. It's just so much liberal smoke
from sore losers.Let's hope this can be cleared up without
Nunes. Susan Rice is doing a pretty good job of incriminating herself and the
Obama White House. We know from her that the people were unmasked, tracked and
monitored by the oval office.
The Administration has not yet even filled many positions and are losing them
faster than they can appoint. Jared now has twenty hats. Sad.
Drain the swamp? The laughing stock of the world and our country is finding
fewer and fewer friends other than a handful of loyal deplorables.
Thid Barker - Victor, ID, the reason this is being investigated has nothing to
do with the alternative truths that you have put out there. This isn't
about politics. This is about our Democracy and Republic being
subverted by a foreign power. Period!If there is nothing to hide
then why are the Republicans running so scared? Why are they lying about so
many things including involvement with Russians? Why do they conveniently
forget about contacts with Russians? So many dominoes keep falling with strong
intelligence from multiple Federal investigations. Shows a pattern within the
Trump administration and his appointees.This isn't about
politics. This is about dishonesty and possible treason within our country.
Stepping aside seems to be the new norm under this administration. Not
surprising at all.
Flynn. Bannon. Nunes.Dominos.
This is unexpected; and also some good news.
Stepping aside for the Trump-Russia investigation was the right thing to do.
Yup, the reason they lost the white house and control of both houses of
congress and thousands of state offices all over America is somehow because of
the Russians! Democrats NEVER lose elections, they are always stolen from them!
This is what's really behind this "investigation"! They need an
excuse for their loses but stubbornly refuse to listen to the reasons they are
