Sessions trying to respond to the perjury issue reminds me of Clinton's impeachment hearings: "it depends on what the definition of "is" is"

My two cents: the GOP went on a very, very expensive war path with HRC as secretary of state regarding Benghazi and the email server.

We now have mounting evidence regarding a foreign country meddling in our election. It is ridiculous that anyone who supported the Benghazi hearing but thinks that we just need to "let it go" when it comes to the Russia stuff.

No, fuck that shit.

Charlotte Observer adds some more detail to this^^ story so you can read it without having to suffer through maddow

Trump, Russian billionaire say they’ve never met, but their jets did — in Charlotte
http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/politics-government/article136940273.html

tl;dr
the jet owned by the russian who overpaid like $60m [fact that he bought for inflated price, you can decide how much he overpaid] for trump's palm beach mansion overlapped with trump's plane at Concord, Charlotte, Las Vegas, and Miami [fact]. the russian dude's spokesperson has connections to brietbart [fact]. russian guy was a major shareholder in bank of cyprus [fact], same trump's commerce secretary [fact].

none of these things in a vacuum are particularly interesting, but there continues to be a pattern of 1) russian connections to the trump administration and 2) the trump administration lying about it

Interesting.

I think the stuff about Russia as a state influencing the election are probably bogus. I do however, whole heartily believe that foreign money was donated, in large sums, so help him win.

It's pretty much a fact that they "influenced" the election. If nothing more they had a massive horde of twitter bots that were pro-Trump/anti-HRC. That's fine though.

My personal opinion is that the Russian intent was to delegitimize the Clinton presidency and not to have Trump win. Now they realize that the unpredictability of Trump might be a major problem.

russia is involved in influencing politics in many nations, why is it absurd to think they are doing the same type of influencing in the US? is social media or the hoi polloi in general so savvy in the US that it doesn't fall for influencing?

russian influencing really has nothing to do with the russia-trump connections, influencing foreign elections is something that major powers do

From Trump's wacky press conference:

Quote :
"Russia is a ruse. I have nothing to do with Russia. Haven't made a phone call to Russia in years. Don't speak to people from Russia. Not that I wouldn't. I just have nobody to speak to. I spoke to Putin twice. He called me on the election. I told you this. And he called me on the inauguration, a few days ago. We had a very good talk, especially the second one, lasted for a pretty long period of time. I'm sure you probably get it because it was classified. So I'm sure everybody in this room perhaps has it. But we had a very, very good talk. I have nothing to do with Russia. To the best of my knowledge no person that I deal with does. Now, Manafort has totally denied it. He denied it. Now people knew that he was a consultant over in that part of the world for a while, but not for Russia. I think he represented Ukraine or people having to do with Ukraine, or people that -- whoever. But people knew that. Everybody knew that.""

Because you leftists hacks are taking Trump's plain-spoken hyperbole (that Americans understand), and you are applying scrutiny to it as if he is under oath in front of lawyers, in a desperate search for any sentence you can misrepresent as a "gotcha" for another leftist tabloid headline.

In that same paragraph Trump says "I don't speak to people from Russia" and then says "I spoke to Putin twice". Russia Trump Connection Conspiracy Theory Exposed?!?!?! Or do we all know what he is saying and some people just cling to narratives?

dont reply to him, he is just misrepresenting the first post in this thread

the reason a buzzfeed link is included is because that is who posted the golden showers dossier; the link contains the full document to read for yourself. the link is also qualified with a "(claim)" tag and one of the claims in the dossier is described. the reason the claim is included is because it is related to some coincidental facts later on in the post.

just to clarify for anyone who hasn't read

also,
really the only questionable link i posted is a random wordpress blog, and i clearly marked that as "(conjecture)" since it is just conjecture by some dude. the reason i included it at all is because it is conjecture about a few facts. its by far the most conspiracy theory thing i included since it's about a russian who was shot twice in his car but was reported as a heart attack. its also not necessary for the larger story, you can disregard it entirely if you want.

^unfortunately this is how both shitty parties operate.

Democrats in power. Something goes down. Republicans act with hysteria and Democrats want to bury it.
Republicans in power. Something goes down. Democrats act with hysteria and Republicans want to bury it.

They both suck. The truth is usually somewhere in the middle in both cases.

Take Benghazi. Is Clinton responsible? Absolutely not. But as a leader, she could have done a lot more to fix things at the State Department and may have been negligent in some cases.

Take the Russian stuff. Is Trump actually an asset/spy? Most likely not. But he has absolutely taken policy stances/opinions in direct conflict with American and other (read Ukrainian) interests based on having picked some of the worst people on the planet for his administration and campaign, most of whom love Russia for some inexplicable reason and keep lying about their correspondence/meetings/etc.

I think there's a strong possibility that Manafort, Page, Stone and maybe even Bannon are skirting the edge between being outright assets and being simply corrupt pieces of human shit. The question is whether Trump knows this or is just catering based on his random obsession with Russia over business interests.

I think they took advantage of Flynn. He is a patriot and truly thinks Islam is the biggest, existential threat to the United States (it isn't) and because of that was willing to work with Russia to 1) handle them and 2) put more pressure on China.

Sessions I can't tell one way or the other. I listen to him speak and wonder how in the hell he has been anything other than a janitor in his life. But I actually do think he perjured himself in which case I'm baffled.

Speaking of Sessions: http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/09/politics/kfile-russian-ambassador-october-speech/

Gave a speech saying he never met with anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign. Also says he was unexpectedly called back to Moscow during the RNC.

But he met with Sessions, a Trump campaign adviser. At the RNC...

Further Details: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/09/opinion/connecting-trumps-dots-to-russia.html
If point 5 is verified he's 100% impeached.

Truthfully while the Russian-Trump thing is making headlines i haven't heard nearly the firestorm from -D politicians or FB political soapbox warriors regarding the Russian-Trump link as compared to Benghazi.

Based on the attention it got from -R in congress you'd think she personally collaborated with the terrorists to have the servicemen killed.

Not really. He freely admitted at the time last year that he had a backchannel with WikiLeaks. Makes sense it was the person/group that had full knowledge of what they had. No one really cared at the time.

Some stories last night that point to the fact that anyone who thought there was some "smoking gun" are going to be sorely disappointed. Just run of the mill lying. Nothing terrible.
