Oh, and did I mention that the compromising information on Trump supposedly includes evidence of Trump's "personal obsessions and sexual perversion," including "sex parties" in Moscow? Well, consider it mentioned.


http://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2017/01/us-intelligence-evidence-trump-russia-ties-might-be-credible

 

 

In late October, Harry Reid sent an angry letter to FBI Director James Comey saying that "it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government." What was this all about? A few days later, David Corn summarized a dossier of raw intelprovided by a "former senior intelligence officer for a Western country":


When he dug into Trump, he notes, he came across troubling information indicating connections between Trump and the Russian government. According to his sources, he says, "there was an established exchange of information between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin of mutual benefit."...The first memo, based on the former intelligence officer's conversations with Russian sources, noted, "Russian regime has been cultivating, supporting and assisting TRUMP for at least 5 years. Aim, endorsed by PUTIN, has been to encourage splits and divisions in western alliance." It maintained that Trump "and his inner circle have accepted a regular flow of intelligence from the Kremlin, including on his Democratic and other political rivals." It claimed that Russian intelligence had "compromised" Trump during his visits to Moscow and could "blackmail him."


This is where things stayed until today, when we learned a little bit more. Apparently the intelligence community now considers this raw intel credible enough that it included it as an annex to the classified version of its report on Russian hacking. CNN reports:


Some of the memos were circulating as far back as last summer. What has changed since then is that US intelligence agencies have now checked out the former British intelligence operative and his vast network throughout Europe and find him and his sources to be credible enough to include some of the information in the presentations to the President and President-elect a few days ago.


The Washington Post adds this:


A senior U.S. official with access to the document said that the allegations were presented at least in part to underscore that Russia had embarrassing information on both major candidates, but only released material that might harm Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton — a reflection of Russian motivation that bolstered U.S. spy agencies’ conclusion that Moscow sought to help Trump win.

....If true, the information suggests that Moscow has assembled damaging information — known in espionage circles by the Russian term “kompromat” — that conceivably could be used to coerce the next occupant of the White House.


BuzzFeed has the full 35-page memo here. Oh, and did I mention that the compromising information on Trump supposedly includes evidence of Trump's "personal obsessions and sexual perversion," including "sex parties" in Moscow? Well, consider it mentioned.

And you can't seem to get that. 

Read the report in WaPo.  It is filled with unconfirms, and not yet verifieds.  That's code for we think we may have something, and we want to stir shit, but we really don't know.  And they will continue to publish bullshit because they have had their asses handed to them by the general public.  No one believes them anymore.  That's why the article is filled with ass covering "unconfirmed" statements.

Bruce, the voters did not soundly reject anything, and in fairness that could be part of the problem. 

Trump lost the popular vote by almost 3 million votes. His opponent , Hillary Clinton, received MORE VOTES than any other presidential candidate in history but one, and that includes not only all the losers, but all the winners. 

On what possible basis do you think Trump won a landslide? Even his electoral vote total was one of the lowest for a winner in the past 100 years.

One thing for sure is the polls indicated the American people thought the country was heading in the wrong direction.  Eight years of Obama and for people to say that doesn't speak highly of Obama's policies.  Hillary indicated she was proud of his policies and appeared to be planning on continuing them.  The voters, except the entitlement group  and elites rejected her.  Obama made it clear, the voters were voting for his policies and they rejected his policies.

Yes, it took 3 states to counter California.  But California is also has more votes than 41 other states do individually, so if you use Popular votes 3 states or just California could have a lot more control than they already have of who our Presidents become.   That means those 41 states would cease to ever have any say so in the election of their President forever and would become slaves in their own country without a voice any longer.

The Liberal logic is so perverted it is sickening.  On the one hand they jump up and down to protect the point 3% of the population of transgenders dishing the other 99.7% and when they don't get their way they have no problem screwing the smallest states and taking away their rights and voices as American Citizens.

Nance says the two page addendum to the Presidents daily briefing is most likely the portion that has been vetted by the intelligence agencies and what they have confidence in. 

Nance perhaps more interestingly said that trump has been to Russia numerous times with insecure phones and communications. Nance said it is highly likely Russian intelligence developed a dossier on Trump.
