  Russian "Bots"
Posted by: BornAgainAmerican - Yesterday, 10:55 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Interesting how these Russian "bots" take the leftroid side for gun control.  Reported by the leftroid Independent no less.  Another indication that if Russians interferred with our country, it would be towards socialism - like the left.

  Another plea deal
Posted by: Jessamine - Yesterday, 09:52 AM - Forum: News Discussion - Replies (5)

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has charged the son-in-law of a Russian oligarch with lying to his office about communications with other indicted individuals.
Alex van der Zwaan, an attorney and the son-in-law of Russian billionaire German Khan, faces charges of making false statements. The charges were dated Feb. 16 but unsealed Tuesday. He is expected to plead guilty in court Tuesday afternoon. 
Van der Zwaan allegedly lied to Mueller's office last November about when and how he communicated with Rick Gates, the former Trump campaign aide who was indicted last fall.
Mueller's office alleges that Van der Zwaan failed to disclose conversations he had with Gates and another person, and deleted emails that were sought by the office.
The charges follow an indictment filed last Friday charging 13 Russian individuals, and three Russian companies, with crimes furthering an attempt to interfere with the 2016 election.
This is a developing story.
Let’s see how this “develops”.

  Mueller's Indictments
Posted by: BornAgainAmerican - Yesterday, 07:58 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

I'm old enough to remember when Russian meddling in elections was not just assumed, but was sought out and welcomed by dems.

Quote:Kennedy's message was simple. He proposed an unabashed quid pro quo. Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election. "The only real potential threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations," the memorandum stated. "These issues, according to the senator, will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign."
Kennedy made Andropov a couple of specific offers.

First he offered to visit Moscow. "The main purpose of the meeting, according to the senator, would be to arm Soviet officials with explanations regarding problems of nuclear disarmament so they may be better prepared and more convincing during appearances in the USA." Kennedy would help the Soviets deal with Reagan by telling them how to brush up their propaganda.

Then he offered to make it possible for Andropov to sit down for a few interviews on American television. "A direct appeal ... to the American people will, without a doubt, attract a great deal of attention and interest in the country. ... If the proposal is recognized as worthy, then Kennedy and his friends will bring about suitable steps to have representatives of the largest television companies in the USA contact Y.V. Andropov for an invitation to Moscow for the interviews. ... The senator underlined the importance that this initiative should be seen as coming from the American side."

Kennedy would make certain the networks gave Andropov air time--and that they rigged the arrangement to look like honest journalism.

But one has to marvel at the ease with which the Ruskies have been able to achieve discord in our political environment with only a few thousand dollars on Facebook.  Depending on the source, the Russians spent $46,000 to $100,000 total for all their efforts nationwide.  They also spent only $3,000 in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan.  You know, states that HItlery thought she had in the bag.  Seems the ol' gal coulda' learned something from the Ruskies. 

Hats off to Ruskie cost efficiency if they really did influence the election with this amount of money.

Russki bots are a part of life now.

It will be good to have a real president again. One that the Russkis don't have X-rated tapes/video on.

  DOJ to INvestigate FBI's Mishandling of Trump Dossier
Posted by: BornAgainAmerican - 02-19-2018, 09:53 PM - Forum: News Discussion - No Replies

Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed Sunday the Department of Justice plans to thoroughly investigate the FBI’s mishandling of the infamous ‘Trump Dossier’ in obtaining a FISA warrant against the Trump campaign; adding his agency will get to the bottom of the bureau’s use of the Clinton-financed document to surveil the President’s advisors in 2016.

Sessions was speaking with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo when he was asked whether the DOJ was currently probing allegations the FBI used the shady document to obtain FISA warrants against Trump insider Carter Page.

“Are you, sir, investigating the fact that the FBI used the dossier to get a wiretap against Trump associates and they did not tell the FISA court that the Democrats and Hillary Clinton paid for the dossier?” asked Bartiromo.

“Let me tell you, every FISA warrant based on facts submitted to that court have to be accurate,” said Sessions. “That will be investigated and looked at, and we are not going to participate as a Department of Justice in providing anything less than a proper disclosure to the court before they issue a FISA warrant.”

  Impeach a prominent Republican - NY Mag
Posted by: susnus - 02-19-2018, 06:21 PM - Forum: News Discussion - Replies (26)

New York Magazine explains the reasonable case for the actual impeachment of a prominent Republican over sexual misconduct and lying under oath. No, not that one. No, not that one either. Nope, you're still not even warm.

Here you go
