5. As a child of the Cold War, I feel like I have landed in Wacky World.

I don't miss the over the top Red-baiting and 'Ruskie' hatred, but this type of thing really should get more of a groundswell reaction from any and every person born in this country in the fifties and sixties. Come on, people.

9. Trump told Russian officials in 2017 wasn't concerned about Moscow's interference in U.S. election

And Trump didn't let the US news media into the White House but he did let Russian media into the White House
for his "collusion meeting" during which he gave away some top secret intel the Russians. Trump is 100% compromised
by the Russians.

President Trump told two senior Russian officials in a 2017 Oval Office meeting that he was unconcerned about Moscow’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election because the United States did the same in other countries, an assertion that prompted alarmed White House officials to limit access to the remarks to an unusually small number of people, according to three former officials with knowledge of the matter.

The comments, which have not been previously reported, were part of a now-infamous meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, in which Trump revealed highly classified information that exposed a source of intelligence on the Islamic State. He also said during the meeting that firing FBI Director James B. Comey the previous day had relieved “great pressure” on him.

A memorandum summarizing the meeting was limited to a few officials with the highest security clearances in an attempt to keep the president’s comments from being disclosed publicly, according to the former officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters.

Trump had publicly ridiculed the Russia investigation as politically motivated and said he doubted Moscow had intervened in the election. By the time he met with Lavrov and Kislyak, Trump had been briefed by the most senior U.S. intelligence officials about the Russian operation, which was directed by Russian President Vladi­mir Putin and included the theft and publication of Democratic emails and the seeding of propaganda in social media, according to the findings of the U.S. intelligence community.

Trump’s firing of Comey touched off an investigation into whether the president had tried to obstruct the FBI’s probe. His comments about Comey’s dismissal being a relief, which were first reported the same month by the New York Times, reinforced suspicions that Trump dismissed Comey because the FBI was investigating him.

... & company's meeting in Trump Tower w/Russia, kept the US media away from his meetings
with Russians but has allowed Russian media into the meetings, and has acted out in public
as a Russian asset and yet our "liberal media's" coverage of these out right acts of treason
has been next to nothing.

Trump is the biggest crook in America's history, his installation into the White House and other
attacks on America's democracy but both foreign and domestic agents is the biggest crime in
America's history, and now he not only Putin working to keep him into power but now Trump's
consigliere Bill Barr and the GOP are working to make this crime spree not seem all that bad.


? How many republicans are dirty w/Russian money and or kompramat?

Lock him up.

I don't think he needs any more money for himself than he already stole.
