It is not a "witch hunt" and Trump has been told that to his face.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/18/world/europe/trump-intelligence-russian-election-meddling-.html

WASHINGTON — Two weeks before his inauguration, Donald J. Trump was shown highly classified intelligence indicating that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia had personally ordered complex cyberattacks to sway the 2016 American election.

The evidence included texts and emails from Russian military officers and information gleaned from a top-secret source close to Mr. Putin, who had described to the C.I.A. how the Kremlin decided to execute its campaign of hacking and disinformation

The Jan. 6, 2017, meeting, held at Trump Tower, was a prime example. He was briefed that day by John O. Brennan, the C.I.A. director; James R. Clapper Jr., the director of national intelligence; and Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency and the commander of United States Cyber Command.

The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, was also there; after the formal briefing, he privately told Mr. Trump about the “Steele dossier.” That report, by a former British intelligence officer, included uncorroborated salacious stories of Mr. Trump’s activities during a visit to Moscow, which he denied.

According to nearly a dozen people who either attended the meeting with the president-elect or were later briefed on it, the four primary intelligence officials described the streams of intelligence that convinced them of Mr. Putin’s role in the election interference.


*******
Trump has now fired, forced to leave government, or pulled the security clearance for all the
major players he briefed him about Putin/Russia's interference 2 weeks before his inauguration.

Correction James Clapper former director of the N.I.A. worked for both Republican and Democratic
Presidents and retired when President Obama's 2nd term was up. He now works with "Investigate
Russia." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Clapper

Trump, "But if he (Mueller) was doing an honest report than he would write it on the other side." I

"But if he (Mueller) was doing an honest report than he would write it on the other side."

"Including colluding with Russia, the other side."

Sorry if I did not get the quotes just right because I don't speak gibberish.


So the Russian interference with the election is Hillary's fault?
I wonder if even Trump believes this nonsense?

Rand Paul wants Trump to lift US travel sanctions on some Russian lawmakers

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)Republican Sen. Rand Paul said Thursday that he plans to ask President Donald Trump to lift sanctions on members of the Russian legislature so that they are able to travel to the United States.

The Kentucky senator, who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, invited the Russian lawmakers to the US capital during a trip to Moscow in early August. He told Fox News on Thursday that members of both houses of the Russian Federal Assembly have "agreed to come to Washington in the fall for further meetings."

"That's a good thing," Paul said. "The downside is the chairman of each of the committees is banned from coming to the United States because of sanctions. So one of the things I'm going to ask the President -- I'm going to talk to the President this weekend -- is I'm going to say, 'why don't we take people off the list who are in the legislature.'"

Paul was among the most vocal Republican lawmakers to support the US President after Trump's news conference in Helsinki, Finland, with Putin. Trump was widely criticized by members of his own party for appearing to side with Putin over the US intelligence community's assessment that Russia interfered in the US presidential elections. Trump later said he misspoke, but Paul accused the President's critics of "Trump derangement syndrome."

"Any country that can spy does, and any country that can meddle in foreign elections does," Paul said on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer" last month. Paul continued, "All countries are doing this, but we've elevated this to a higher degree, and we've made this all about the sour grapes of Hillary Clinton losing the election, and it's all about partisan politics now. This is truly the Trump derangement syndrome that motivates all of this."

I wonder what Putin/Russia have on Paul? Rand is one more republican treason weasel.

Happy Birthday Maxine Waters Thread

Thank you for everything Maxine. You are what a real patriot looks like.

And thank you for saying from the start that Trump used Russia to steal the Presidency
and for saying when the American people get to see what you have seen that Trump
will be gone ASAP.

Does Trump even know that the Apprentice was make believe?

Trump was a CEO of a make believe firm, nobody was really fired, and if a scene went
badly they stopped and reshot the scene. Good God in Butter I want to fucking scream.
