The cover-up
https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/nat...story.html


Quote:Trump made separate appeals to the director of national intelligence, Daniel Coats, and to Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, urging them to publicly deny the existence of any evidence of collusion during the 2016 election.

Quote:Trump’s conversation with Rogers was documented contemporaneously in an internal memo written by a senior NSA official, according to the officials. It is unclear if a similar memo was prepared by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to document Trump’s conversation with Coats. Officials said such memos could be made available to both the special counsel now overseeing the Russia investigation and congressional investigators, who might explore whether Trump sought to impede the FBI’s work.

See, this is the kind of cheek that having a huge amount of money gives a person. He really has no clue about the position he's in, since all of his money has allowed him to get away with a lot. He may still walk, more's the pity. I'd love to know that the Chump is in Bar-A-Lotta. (A.K.A. the Crossbar hotel). Guard says, "Prisoner #1 (he'd have to buy that, but WTH, he's rich), step up to the yellow line." [pump fist (yes!) emoji]

RE: The cover-up
Seems close enough for this thread...turns out our Attorney General lied by omission on his security clearance forms, failing to disclose meetings with the Russians.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions failed to disclose meetings with Russians in his security clearance form.

Need to think of a witty signature.

RE: The cover-up
Yep, the plot keeps sickening. There is almost no one in that administration who hasn't been schmoozing with the Russians. And lying about it, too.

They need to be removed already. Who do they think they're fooling?

It's hard to keep up with all this crap. So much came out today.
This was pretty shocking, but all the other stuff took precedence.

RE: The cover-up
Yep, Comey apparently was duped into making that announcement.

Quote:A secret document that officials say played a key role in then-FBI Director James B. Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation has long been viewed within the FBI as unreliable and possibly a fake, according to people familiar with its contents.

RE: The cover-up
A philosophical question: which, objectively speaking, is the greater threat to America: ISIS or Russia?

I would maintain, based on revelations like those above, Russia.

ISIS certainly gets a better emotional reaction, causes more existential dread, because children staggering out of a concert with nails in their face is horrifying, whereas Russia operates more in the shadows, doing much less flashy things that may seem relatively innocuous. Yet they seem to have infiltrated and manipulated our government to the point of eroding, and potentially destroying, our democratic institutions. Not that I want to see any bomb attacks anywhere, but a few dozen people a year killed in bombings, this country can stand better than this daily drumbeat of undermining coming from the Russians, which includes the daily drumbeat of Trump perfidy.

Oh, Russia by a long shot.

America, by three orders of magnitude at least. But it would never occur to muric'ns to self reflect when there are so many "others" (only the 95% of the rest of humanity) to blame.
