    No, there is a paper trail for a wire tap. The investigation takes minutes. The FBI and justice department say there is nothing to support Trump's fantasy. UK intelligence also said that his claim of their involvement is nonsense.

    Trump is either delusional or lying. Which do you think?

    Both, but mostly just him being an a-hole.

    He's very predictable that way.

    Former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort wanted for questioning in Ukraine corruption case - CNNPolitics.com
    You mean "Paul Manafort, who played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time"?

    That's what Spicey said today!

    The Trump administration is in full coverup mode.

    Think for a minute about the "very limited time" part!

    Edit: Think about this—within a week of Manafort (paid by Russia) coming on board the Trump team, Trump stated hammering NATO.

    COLLUSION, anyone?

    I love how Republicans and their voters suddenly don't care about things like lying by Presidents, FBI investigations of Presidents, assessing the cost of bills before they're voted on, insisting that new bills be funded, lying to Congress while you're being questioned for a Cabinet position, having illegals in your employ, failing to pay taxes, failing to show tax returns voluntarily as POTUS, making unsupported accusations of crimes by former Presidents, taking weekly $3 million vacations, costing the U.S. about $400k per day to keep the FLOTUS safe in NY, budding friendships with Russian leaders while dissing European leaders... the mind boggles. I swear there is no limit and when Trump is finally booted because of this Russian story, the Republicans will blame the Democrats.

    How about this for more evidence of Russian penetration of the Trump administration?

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/power...ed1_story.html

    The Donald has appointed White House aides to the various agencies to monitor the actions of both the cabinet secretaries and the other officials of those agencies - to make sure that they are remaining loyal to the Donald. The folks in the Pentagon have taken to calling these aides "commissars".

    Now for years we heard the GOP and others on the far right call Barrack Obama a "communist" but never did he utilize a truly Stalinist tactic such as this. It makes you wonder what else Vladimir has told Donald to do...

    Weaken NATO.
    Discredit the CIA.
    Decimate the State Department.
    Attack the free press.
    Whatever he can to weaken America.


    Trump is Putin's puppet. Some of these activities were described in the Steele dossier, adding to its credence. This is getting really ugly.

    Only in your minds, cowboys, only in your minds.

    Trump has only promised to make NATO members pay up their fair share of funding. He'll also pull back and operate as a third party in the current NATO arms build up in the Baltic States, and stop lobbying Ukraine to become a member.

    Da Trumpster apologized to select CIA officials a day or two after his insult and gave a rousing speech supporting them. Trump's appointee, Mike Pompeo, has their approval.

    The State Dept. officials resigned of their own accord, or were Obama appointees, and liable to being forced to resign in the new administration. Perfectly legal. All POTUSs do it. So far, Tillerson is not making an ass of himself meeting world leaders. He just calmed down the Chinese over Trump's high fives with the PM of Taiwan. He also says he respects China's sphere of influence in east Asia. He's turning out to be the good Eagle Scout he used to be.

    The free press has been so hostile to Trump they deserve his attacks. Reports are coming out that he hired lots of type A underlings, and that they argue a lot. Stories are coming out from colleagues that face to face, the Donald treats them with respect and is easy to talk to.

    Please define "weaken." This occurs in every transition until the new administration gets it together. Check back in a year and ask that question. I predict y'all will eat some crow.

    Trump is appointing Kellyanne's husband to a top job at the DOJ. Another coincidence—he just represented a company charged with bribing Russian officials.

    Kellyanne Conway's husband was all he could find?

    Russians claim to have dropped the information warfare equivalent of an atomic bomb on us. They say its power buys them parity with the United States on the international stage, and moreover that their information warfare capability will force the West to do its bidding.

    What's really sick is how some Americans are helping them. Bastards.

    Trump got the wrong end of the stick. NATO isn't a collective fund like the UN is. America doesn't spend money on NATO unless there is an attack on another member. So far the only time that has happened is in Afghanistan after the US was attacked. There is an annual target of 2% of GDP. There is no collective deficit accrued that must be paid back but Trump, as is typical of the feeble minded, can only think about it as winners and losers. Why doesn't he go after the NATO country that spends the least on defense: Canada?

    That annual target of 2% of GDP is not "fees" to NATO, but rather a target that each member should be spending on their own military. Once again, the Donald cannot understand simple concepts. In fact, if he wanted to make them feel an urgency in upping their defense spending then he should be cutting our defense budget, not increasing it.

    You need to stop listening to Trump and start finding answers for yourself. You are way to quick to believe what he says.

    Here's an example. How much is each NATO allies 'fair share' and who do they pay it to?

    The answer is 2% of GDP and they don't pay it to anyone. This is the amount they are supposed to spend on defense related activities. They don't 'owe' the money to anyone.

    The US spends more so that we can protect the overseas investments of US corporations, many of which don't actually pay taxes and the 1% who pay very little when compared to their income.

    So next time you hear Trump talk about NATO allies and their defense commitment, think about what it really means and don't be fooled.

    How do you know what world leaders think of Tillerson? I have a pretty good idea of what they think of Trump, based on Trumps reckless insults to Germany, China and Britain. Spying on Trump for Obama? C'mon.

    Yes, the press reports what Trump actually says. Which seems to be their job. Its Trump's job not to say stupid things. Why would you think this is the press's problem?
    Why would you think its ok for Trump to say stupid things, out and out lies and simply repeat what he hears on Faux News?

    As I said earlier, I can't find any more logic in these types of posts of yours than in Trump's nonsense.

    SPEIER: You know, I think it's really important as we sit here that we explain this to the American people in a way that they can understand it. Why are we talking about all of this? So my first question to each of you is, is Russia our adversary? Mr. Comey?

    COMEY: Yes.

    SPEIER: Mr. Rogers?

    ROGERS: Yes.

    SPEIER: Is -- do they intend to do us harm?

    ROGERS: They intend to ensure, I believe, that they gain advantage at our expense.

    SPEIER: Director Comey?

    COMEY: Yes, I wanna be -- harm can have many meetings. They're an adversary and so they wanna resist us, oppose us, undermine us, in lots of different ways.

    This Russian attack, this act of war, took place on Obama's watch. How did Democrats let our security get so lax as to make this possible? Were you lefties not as passionate about it as you have become since Trump was elected?

    Yet it was brought up to the gop during the election and they refused to make a statement about it saying to political.

    I do note the deflection trying to cover for your chosen leader of the angry old white guy party.

    The issue is not that the "attack" took place, it's the reaction to it, or lack thereof, by the Republicans. And then there's the issue that the Republicans, or Trump group, were complicit in it. But you don't care, keep pointing fingers wherever possible. 9/11 took place on GWB's watch but Republicans found a way to blame Clinton.

    Bizarre post.

    The attack was not the hacking, that happens all the time. The attack was how Putin weaponized the results of the hack to damage a group of Americans.

    It was very strange to see the GOP cheering on Russia's attack on Americans. Why do they hate America?
