Whadya wanna bet the CIA is sitting on evidence of Trump and his camp communicating and colluding..

With Russia during the campaign - ready to dangle it threateningly over his fat orange head the moment he actually sets out to dismantle the Agency?

In the event they had the Con Campaign absolutely nailed! Trump wouldn't be smart enough to conceive this - but the evil Bannon likely would be.

43. As I have said in other comments...

I have been having a recurring dream... for over a week, in which something happens whereby the inauguration is postponed or something and it seems it is something that happens at the last minute like around the 19th.

Many of my recurring dreams actually come to pass in a manner very much like I saw in the dream. This feels like one of those and I hope that it is one of those.

Speaking to a friend today over tea, a very worldly war correspondent in fact, and they speculated that it may take about six months so the trumplodites will be terribly disillusioned and actually be glad when the cheetoking gets kennedied. He's a loose cannon and uncontrollable... which makes him expendable, which appears to be why the Rs don't give much of a shit about what he does until that fateful day... and then we will get WWIII as a consolation prize. For the time being, he's great cover for the shit they are pulling behind closed doors making us a fascist country... shock doctrine style.

By law, they're not allowed to spy in/on America, but they probably have enough eyes and ears in Russia to know what is going on from their end. If nothing else, any of his business dealings would be available to our spooks in Moscow.

I can't imagine they don't have anything on him.

If we slow down a bit for you - maybe you'll be able to catch up - and even contribute more than just your sour cynicism!

I read countless posts here which claim the Russians hacked voting machines and changed vote totals. That is not being put forward as "speculation" but as truth and it is clear many believe it even though there is zero evidence of that. It is all baseless CTs no matter how its dressed up.

38. Being that he's President...

Obama is obviously encumbered with responsibilities that do not allow him to speak as freely as you and I can do about probably most subjects. It won't do for a President (other than the idiot Trump) to publicly speculate - and there are always going to be issues that he cannot be candid about. Be that as it may, Obama's story doesn't quite add up, but the determination might well be (and maybe justifiably so) that the American public is stable enough to handle proof of hacking actual voting tallies - and that the American President was just selected by the Russian President.

You don't have to buy my theory, and that's fine. I'm afraid I don't have time to at the moment to include some of the circumstantial evidence that I feel strongly supports what I'm suggesting, but you've probably seen most of it by now anyway. To each his own.

Hmmm. Doesn't sound like the safest course of action a U.S. President could possibly take.

47. Mr. Drumpf, it's not wise to pick a fight with the CIA

They put their lives on the line to neutralize foreign threats to national security, including and especially those from your beloved comrade Putin. It's even more foolish to insult or threaten to dismantle the agency at Pootie's behest.

If you don't believe me, ask the surviving Kennedys. From JFK and RFK to their sons, they all met untimely deaths, either by assassins' bullets or by some sort of "accident."

If Comrade Casino values his life or the lives of his family, he had better not pick a fight with the CIA; he's bound to lose. That should be warning enough, but I doubt he'll heed it.
