DELUSIONAL. it is so obvious as the left continues to dissolve. DeNiro is like the OP where their hatred has clouded any rational thoughts.

NEWS FLASH: If you are going to suicide take a breather this winning will continue for 7 more years, maybe more. OP can you do 7 more years with all these positive changes.

My advice:Get a hobby, change your focus OP or you will go mad but starting delusional threads are quite frankly I'm embarrassed for you. Heartflowers

Quote:Roberts: "Are you open to meeting with (special counsel Robert Mueller)? Would you be willing to meet with him without condition? Or would you demand that a strict set of parameters be placed around any encounter between you and the special counsel?"



Trump: "Well, again John, there has been no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians or Trump and Russians. No collusion. When I watch you interviewing all the people leaving their committees, I mean, the Democrats are all running for office, trying to say this that -- but bottom line, they all say there's no collusion. And there is no collusion.

"And when you talk about interviews, Hillary Clinton had an interview, where she wasn't sworn in, she wasn't given the oath, they didn't take notes, they didn't record and it was done on the 4th of July weekend. That's perhaps ridiculous and a lot of people looked upon that as being a very serious breach and it really was.
"But again I'll speak to attorneys -- I can only say this, there was absolutely no collusion. Everybody knows it. Every committee -- I've been in office now for 11 months. For 11 months, they've had this phony cloud over this administration, over our government. And it has hurt our government. It does hurt our government. It's a Democrat hoax that was brought up as an excuse for losing an election that frankly the Democrats should have won because they have such a tremendous advantage in the electoral college.
"So it was brought up for that reason. But it has been determined that there is no collusion and by virtually everybody. So we'll see what happens. We'll see what happens. I mean certainly we'll see what happens -- when they have no collusion and nobody's found any collusion at any level it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview."

http://edition.cnn.com/2018/01/10/politi...index.html


omg it's CNN.. that must mean he never used the phrase “no collusion” 7 times in a single answer.

CNN probably has a fake president puppet they use to create fake interviews like this.

Quote:Obstructing the FBI

There is no story here, only innuendoes plied by Fox News to smear Clinton with hyped allegation she illegally influenced an FBI investigation. Here is what really happened, as summarized in the Wall Street Journal, not exactly a hotbed of Clinton support. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, central to the story, is a prominent Democrat with close ties to the Clintons. McAuliffe’s PAC donated about $500,000 to the 2015 state senate election campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe. In addition, another $207,788 was donated to McCabe’s campaign via the Virginia Democratic Party. This total of $675,000 represents about 35% of the total that McCabe raised. McCabe ultimately lost to Republican Richard Black. Nothing about these donations is unusual or in any way out of the ordinary. For example, candidate Dan Gecker benefited to the tune of $781,500 from that same PAC and $214,456 from the state party. Jeremy McPike received $803,500 from the PAC and $535,162 from the state party.

So why any fuss? Because McCabe’s husband is Andrew McCabe, who is now Deputy Director of the FBI. At the time of the campaign, he was an Associate Deputy Director. He had no role in the senate campaign and no ties to Clinton’s presidential election efforts. Month after Jill McCabe’s campaign ended (in defeat), Andrew was promoted to his current position, giving him an oversight role in investigating Clinton’s emails.

Yet given those fact, here is the Fox News headline: “Clinton ally helped fund campaign of key FBI official’s wife.” The story concludes with, “Given all we know about how the corrupt Clinton machine operates, it’s hard not to see this as anything other than a down payment to influence the FBI’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.” Fox News makes much of the fact that Jill McCabe is married to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, neglecting to mention that he was not in that position at the time of the election. A lie by omission is a lie.

So let’s recap: McAuliffe’s PAC (not Clinton or her campaign) and the Virginia state Democratic Party donated transparently to a Virginia senate campaign according to long-standing tradition and legal practice in amount consistent with all past campaigns. This was done long before the candidate’s husband would later have any role investigating Clinton’s emails. But Fox News notes darkly that somehow Clinton must have commanded Virginia Gov. McAuliffe to donate to the Virginia senate campaign knowing with prescience that someday the candidate’s husband would investigate Clinton’s emails. I could not make this up. But Fox News did.

Inciting Violence

We are told in large font boldface print that a “Video shows Clinton coordinated with liberal group to incite crowds.” The National Review posted this headline: “Undercover Video: Hillary Clinton personally directed plan to incite violence at Trump rallies.”

Donald Trump’s biggest defender in the Russia scandal could not name a single falsehood in the dossier that surfaced during the investigation.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and a top Trump defender, was asked point-blank if he could point out anything in the dossier that was false.

He tried to dodge, referring questions to the Intelligence Committee. Asked whether he could speak about it, he said “no,” and again referred questions to the Intelligence Committee.

The refusal to offer a single supposed falsehood runs counter to what Nunes and his fellow Republicans have loudly been alleging for months: that the dossier contains false information.

Nunes and the other Republicans, amplified by Trump and their allies at outlets like Breitbart and Fox News, have desperately tried to attack the FBI investigation, special counsel Robert Mueller, and the dossier itself.

Yet much of the information in the document has already been confirmed, linking Trump’s repeated connections to Russian business operatives over a period of several years. It was put together by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.

Republicans need the information in the dossier to be untrue, or at the very least, dismissed by enough people to give Trump a pass. But when push comes to shove, Nunes has acknowledged that the disinformation campaign has a flaw: Much of the information is true. They can’t avoid that.

RE: FBI destroys GOP smear campaign against Dep. director Trump blames for everything
Quote:According to Steele, he soon found "troubling information indicating connections between Trump and the Russian government. He said that according to his sources, "there was an established exchange of information between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin of mutual benefit." He described the finding as "an extraordinary situation" and concluded it was "sufficiently serious" for him to share it with the FBI, which he did in July 2016.[36]

Steele delivered his report as a series of two- or three-page memos, starting in June 2016 and continuing through December. He continued his investigation even after the Democratic client stopped paying for it following Trump's election.[2] After the election, Fusion GPS co-owner Simpson "reportedly spent his own money to continue the investigation".[15]

On his own initiative, Steele decided to also pass the information to British and American intelligence services because he believed the findings were a matter of national security for both countries.[37] According to the testimony of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, Steele approached the FBI because he was concerned that the then candidate, Donald Trump, was being blackmailed by Russia.[38] However, he became frustrated with the FBI, which he believed was failing to investigate his reports, choosing instead to focus on the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails. According to The Independent, Steele came to believe that there was a "cabal" inside the FBI, particularly its New York field office linked to Trump advisor Rudy Giuliani, which blocked any attempts to investigate the links between Trump and Russia.[37] In October 2016, Steele had compiled 33 pages (16 memos) and passed on what he discovered so far to a reporter from Mother Jones magazine.[36]

In a court filing in April 2017, Steele revealed previously unreported information that in December 2016, shortly after the presidential election, he gave a copy of the 16 memos to "the senior British national security official and sent an encrypted version to Fusion GPS with instructions to deliver a hard copy to Senator McCain.[23] McCain, who had been informed about the alleged links between Kremlin and Trump, met with former British ambassador to Moscow Sir Andrew Wood. Wood confirmed the existence of the dossier and vouched for Steele's "professionalism and integrity".[37] McCain obtained the dossier from David J. Kramer and took it directly to FBI director James Comey on December 9, 2016.[2][29] Comey has confirmed that counter-intelligence investigations are under way into possible links between Trump associates and Moscow, and CNN has reported that the FBI used the dossier to bolster its investigations."[23]

After delivering the 16 memos, more information was received, and two more pages, the "December memo", dated "13 December 2016", was prepared. It alleged efforts by Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to pay those who had hacked the DNC and to "cover up all traces of the hacking operation. He denies this."[22][23]

In a January 2018 Guardian article, it was revealed that Fusion GPS has continued to look into "ties between Mr Trump and Russia

RE: FBI destroys GOP smear campaign against Dep. director Trump blames for everything
One radioactive smear campaign: The Republican attempt to distract from Trump’s Russia scandal is built on lies and innuendo

Quote:
Code:
"The Dems are using this terrible (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics, but the R's are now fighting back like never before. There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out. DO SOMETHING!"
Responding to that presidential scream, Republicans on Capitol Hill, right-wing media outlets and Attorney General Jeff Sessions are doing something. Working together, they have revived the discredited "Russian uranium" accusations against Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as the foundation that bears their names.

Their unsubtle purpose is to distract public and press attention from the ongoing probe of connections between Trump and the Kremlin with a conspiracy theory that envelops the Clintons, the Obama administration, the FBI, and Mueller himself — all with the aim of discrediting the investigation of Trump.

It is an implausible tale, full of logical inconsistencies and false assertions, that dates back to 2015, when Steve Bannon was head of Breitbart News and also ran a small Florida nonprofit called the Government Accountability Institute.

Looking ahead to Hillary Clinton's likely nomination for President on the Democratic ticket, Bannon and author Peter Schweizer had put together a book called "Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich," which charged that the former President and his wife had benefited from corrupt deals involving their foundation.

The book was a tendentious work, replete with errors and omissions, but it benefited from a pre-publication bonanza when the New York Times publicized one of its most sensational charges on the paper of record's front page. For reasons best known to its editors, the Times agreed to an "exclusive deal" with Schweizer that led to a 4,400-word front-page article with the vague but suggestive headline "Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal." The story hinted at serious wrongdoing with implications for national security.

These were the dots connected:
Code:
Through a complex series of business deals, Russia had obtained control of a portion of U.S. uranium reserves, using a Vancouver-based company called Uranium One. Some of the Canadian investors who profited from the sale of Uranium One to Rosatom, the Russian state-owned atomic energy corporation, had given millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation.

Russia's acquisition of American uranium had been approved by the State Department while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State. And Bill Clinton had received a $500,000 fee for a speech delivered in Moscow at a bank that had some connection with Uranium One.

What weakened that apparently damning story was a single big flaw: Hillary Clinton never had the sole authority to sign off on the sale of Uranium One to the Russians, but held only a single seat on a government panel that included members from nine agencies, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.

That committee had voted unanimously in favor of the deal, which had also required and obtained the approval of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the state of Texas, then governed by Republican Rick Perry (later chosen by Trump to serve as secretary of energy).

Although "Clinton Cash" attributed a "central role" to Hillary, she hadn't participated at all in the Uranium One decision. According to the assistant secretary of state who represented her on the inter-agency panel, "Mrs. Clinton never intervened with me on any CFIUS matter."

Knowledgeable observers of CFIUS say that its decisions are dominated by the Pentagon and the Treasury Department, which chairs the committee, not by State.

And those nine agencies had approved the sale of the remainder of Uranium One to the Russians in 2013, again unanimously, several months after Hillary Clinton had left government. That sale also required additional approvals from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Canadian regulators.

So neither of the Clintons could have been bribed to approve Uranium One, because they had nothing to sell. And Frank Giustra, the billionaire Canadian mining investor who was by far the biggest foundation donor connected with Uranium One, had divested his holdings in the company years before it was sold.

Lame as it was, however, the Uranium One story helped launch "Clinton Cash" onto the bestseller lists and stoked the Hillary-hating narrative of the Trump campaign. After Trump's election victory the story faded — until its recent reappearance on in right-wing media outlets like Fox News, Sinclair Broadcasting and, of course, the presidential Twitter feed, as a cudgel against Mueller and his probe of Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.

Now, it is hyped by Fox talking heads as "the biggest scandal of the century,"

In the year since the publication of the so-called Steele dossier — the collection of intelligence reports we commissioned about Donald Trump’s ties to Russia — the president has repeatedly attacked us on Twitter. His allies in Congress have dug through our bank records and sought to tarnish our firm to punish us for highlighting his links to Russia. Conservative news outlets and even our former employer, The Wall Street Journal, have spun a succession of mendacious conspiracy theories about our motives and backers.

We are happy to correct the record. In fact, we already have.


Three congressional committees have heard over 21 hours of testimony from our firm, Fusion GPS. In those sessions, we toppled the far right’s conspiracy theories and explained how The Washington Free Beacon and the Clinton campaign — the Republican and Democratic funders of our Trump research — separately came to hire us in the first place.

We walked investigators through our yearlong effort to decipher Mr. Trump’s complex business past, of which the Steele dossier is but one chapter. And we handed over our relevant bank records — while drawing the line at a fishing expedition for the records of companies we work for that have nothing to do with the Trump case.

Republicans have refused to release full transcripts of our firm’s testimony, even as they selectively leak details to media outlets on the far right. It’s time to share what our company told investigators.

RE: FBI destroys GOP smear campaign against Dep. director Trump blames for everything
Bannon Is Subpoenaed in Mueller’s Russia Investigation

Quote:The move marked the first time Mr. Mueller is known to have used a grand jury subpoena to seek information from a member of Mr. Trump’s inner circle. The special counsel’s office has used subpoenas before to seek information on Mr. Trump’s associates and their possible ties to Russia or other foreign governments.

A second subpoena for Mr. Bannon to testify came from a House panel on Tuesday.

The Mueller subpoena could be a negotiating tactic. Mr. Mueller is likely to allow Mr. Bannon to forgo the grand jury appearance if he agrees to instead be questioned by investigators in the less formal setting of the special counsel’s offices about ties between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia and about the president’s conduct in office, according to the person, who would not be named discussing the case. But it was not clear why Mr. Mueller treated Mr. Bannon differently from the dozen administration officials who were interviewed in the final months of last year and were never served with a subpoena.

The subpoena is a sign that Mr. Bannon is not personally the focus of the inquiry. Justice Department rules allow prosecutors to subpoena the targets of investigations only in rare circumstances.

On Tuesday, he was questioned for 10 hours behind closed doors before the House Intelligence Committee, which is also conducting a Russian election meddling investigation. The meeting turned contentious as Mr. Bannon repeatedly said he could not answer questions, citing executive privilege. The committee eventually subpoenaed Mr. Bannon to compel him to provide answers.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/16/us/po...poena.html

Quote:The precipitous fall of Bannon was not driven by the failure of his combative populist political agenda with its strident opposition to immigration, free trade deals and its nationalist “America first” agenda. Rather it was driven by Bannon himself, a man who allowed his hubris and self-importance to cloud his judgment to such an extent that he considered a public attack on the intelligence of the President’s children to be acceptable. Through his own self-destructive behaviour, Bannon has now put at risk the populist political movement he helped to create and which he dreamt would remake the Republican Party in his own rebellious image.

Bannon is telling friends that he is not finished and believes that Trump will one day seek his counsel again. But history is likely to record Bannon as a two-year phenomenon in American politics, a man whose influence on Trump and on the US flamed, only to burn out in a fireball.

The same personal traits that first attracted Trump to him in 2015 — his combativeness, self-belief and a take-no-prisoners approach — ultimately led to his downfall. Bannon failed to fully achieve his populist vision through Trump the President, but his legacy will be his role in making Trump President. In 2015, Bannon, as head of Breitbart, identified Trump as the candidate who could best change the direction of American politics through a brand of populist ­America-first, anti-immigrant nationalism.

“In Trump, Steve saw someone who, like him, was shunned from the polite classes and was a true outsider,” Bannon’s former Breitbart colleague Kurt Bardella wrote this week. “He admired Trump’s uncanny ability to command and control the media spotlight. Trump had the voice. Steve had the message.”

In mid-2015 Bannon threw his weight behind Trump, declaring Breitbart to be “Trump Central”. During the 2016 primaries and then the election campaign, many of Trump’s key themes — his attacks on immigration, Muslims, free trade, China and globalism — were honed by Bannon, whom Trump eventually appointed as chief executive of his campaign.

During the campaign Breitbart had soared from an obscure website to one that attracted 37 million unique viewers a month. After his win, Trump rewarded Bannon with the role of White House chief strategist. His populist revolution was ready to be unleashed.

But Bannon was already making strange utterances that suggested he was planning for an ideological war against the status quo of American politics the likes of which no US president had ever attempted. He spoke of how he wanted to see the “deconstruction of the administrative state” and defeat what he saw as the malign influence of a so-called “deep state” where US intelligence and other agencies sought to direct government policy independent of the president.

He planned a war on Trump’s own Republican Party. He derided what he saw as the globalist-neo-cons such as Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and elder statesman John McCain, who represented the mainstream, pro-trade, pro-global rump of the party.

Steve Bannon Will Tell All to Robert Mueller, Source Says

Quote:During a closed-door hearing before the House intelligence committee today, Bannon reportedly told lawmakers that President Donald Trump has invoked broad executive privilege for the purposes of Congressional inquiries. Because of that, Bannon refused to answer committee members’ questions about what happened during the presidential transition and in the White House.

This sweeping understanding of privilege will not impact what Bannon tells Mueller’s team, according to our source. (To be sure, Bannon isn't known for being predictable, and it's possible his team may still look for ways to dodge Mueller's queries.)

But it means he isn’t answering many of Congress’s questions. A source familiar with Bannon’s interview told The Daily Beast that despite the subpoena—issued by Devin Nunes, the typically Trump-friendly chairman of the committee—Bannon refused to answer questions about events that happened after Election Day.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/steve-bann...ource-says


Rep. Schiff: White House is gagging Steve Bannon
House Intel Committee ranking member, Congressman Adam Schiff, fresh out of Steve Bannon's all-day closed-door testimony, says the White House is gagging Bannon. The committee tried to legally force Bannon to answer questions after he refused.

As one of Trump’s most reliable apologists, Nunes regularly uses his position in Congress to shield Trump from scrutiny and sabotage attempts to hold him accountable.

Doing what he does best, Nunes spent the latter part of this week pushing a conspiracy theory about the Obama administration spying on members of Trump’s campaign team — a continuation of the manufactured scandal that forced Nunes to recuse himself from the Russia investigation last year.

In the latest iteration of this myth, Nunes claimed to be in possession of a memo showing that the Department of Justice and the FBI had abused surveillance powers and illegally spied on American citizens. The memo — a confidential four-page document — was compiled by a group of Republicans, including Nunes, who launched their own secret investigation of the DOJ and FBI as part of a broader effort to derail the Russia investigation and undermine confidence in the U.S. intelligence community.

Like Nunes’ previous stunts, this one failed spectacularly. There was no scandal, and Nunes was once again caught misleading the public to protect Trump.

But this time around, Nunes’ failure was so epic that even 90’s rock legends took notice:

Watch the real criminals run & hide like cockroaches, when the FISA documents are revealed.
There's going to be many high level goverment employees, wearing jumpsuit orange soon.

I've never seen anyone who believes what they want to believe and refuses to believe everything they don't want to believe as much as AC and HM.

Just keep on posting your 50000 mainstream media articles. There's no possible way there's an agenda in mainstream media. No possible way that they're biased. No possible way that they're lying. Nope, we're stupid.

We must belong to groups that have clearly defined beliefs. Any stray from those beliefs will get you expelled from the group. Our only goal in life is to be a part of that group, so just give up your brain and start posting mainstream media links.
