    The Russian Trump Thread

    It's time to have a real thread dedicated to Russia. This should concern all Americans. Good summary from Schiff on the Russian connections, from the Comey hearing.

    There was more specific info on what Comey was talking about on Monday which had been vague referring to investigating Russian ties:
    This is partly what FBI Director James Comey was referring to when he made a bombshell announcement Monday before Congress that the FBI is investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russia, according to one source.
    Instead of doubling down on your disinterest in Russia, why don't you start asking questions about the seemingly constant trickle of these shady links (I mean beyond your boner for the deep state undermining democracy).

    There wasn't anything at all, man. That article said nothing. Like nothing. It was a collection of maybes, mays, coulds, and possiblys. It's all weak allegatiom designed to take in credible idiots that don't like Trump. Don't be a credible idiot. Dislike Trump.all you want.

    Who recommended Paul Manafort to Trump? That seems like a good place to start. https://www.axios.com/manaforts-offs...326178595.html

    "U.S. Treasury officials have unearthed information on former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort's offshore financial transactions through banks in Cyprus, per the AP:

    Manafort was known to route financial transactions through Cyprus, and used Cypriot shell companies as part of a nearly $19 million deal with Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska to purchase Ukrainian cable television provider Black Sea Cable.


    In one case, the AP found that a Manafort-linked company received a $1 million payment in October 2009 from a mysterious firm through the Bank of Cyprus. The $1 million payment left the account the same day split in two, roughly $500,000 disbursements to accounts with no obvious owner.


    Senate intel committee member Martin Heinrich (D-NM) told the AP revelations about Manafort's work were "serious and disturbing."


    "This is not a drip, drip, drip," Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier of California, a member of the House intelligence committee, told the AP. "This is now dam-breaking with water flushing out with all kinds of entanglements.""

    "Et tu, McCain?" McCain says that thanks to Nunes Congress doesn't have the credibility to investigate Trump's Russian adventure. http://thehill.com/policy/national-s...-russia-probes

    "Congress no longer has the credibility to independently tackle a probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and President Trump and his associates' ties to Moscow, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Wednesday.

    "It's a bizarre situation, and what I think, the reason why I'm calling for this select committee or a special committee, is I think that this back-and-forth and what the American people have found out so far that no longer does the Congress have credibility to handle this alone," McCain told MSNBC's Greta Van Susteren. "And I don't say that lightly."

    Actually, my little Trump Champion, it said this: "One law enforcement official said it appears people "connected to" the Trump campaign gave Russian operatives the "thumbs up" over the releases."

    Looks like the opposite of nothing. Now credibility isn't the same thing as nothing. Something can be said and its credibility can be doubted. I know, it is a very complex for you to understand this.

    Now you can resume our regular Ovi programming: "Look! Clinton's emails!" *runs away*

    Yeah. It actually did: .
    people connected to the campaign were in contact and it appeared they were giving the thumbs up to release information when it was ready."

    I know you say you're all about credibility but after your email huffing and puffing you shat your credibility down the drain. The Russia thing is real and it has been since before the election. You continue to ignore it.

    Quote the whole thing. That starts with "suggests" and the next line contradicts it.

    Full quote, in the interest of discussing apples to apples:

    One law enforcement official said the information in hand suggests "people connected to the campaign were in contact and it appeared they were giving the thumbs up to release information when it was ready." But other U.S. officials who spoke to CNN say it's premature to draw that inference from the information gathered so far since it's largely circumstantial.
    To me, that sounds like speculation.
