Yes, I saw this also earlier today. Very curious. I'd like to believe the worst about Trump, so I'm going to try to hold my opinions until we get more information. Definitely looks bad though.

I don't think that means what she thinks it means. Regular DNS traffic between Alfa Bank and Russian IP addresses is far more suspicious than some emails easily dismissed as spam or junk. Every internet transaction generates DNS traffic. The "regular DNS traffic" indicates ongoing transactions between the IP addresses. She pretty much just admitted guilt.

Girly, I’m counting on you to decipher this since I don’t know the difference between a DNS and a PMS.

Agreed. There are many ways to communicate electronically and, if one had a mind to do so secretly, email would not be the method.

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

I'm open and would not be surprised either way.

I think Putin is a cunning, clever, and calculated leader though. A shady deal with trump just seems too unwise.

I feel so much, and yet I feel nothing.

I am the wind, in the fields in which I roar. I am the water, in which I drown.

I think Putin is quite capable of leading Trump into a false sense of security. Quite capable of spotting Trump's egoistical weaknesses and playing them like a harp.

It may not be a "shady deal" as such but it would never be in America's favour.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Looks like a lot of nothing.

Thanks for the link.

I suppose we could also say looks like a lot of nothing on the Weiner files so far.

That would be the most accurate way to describe the non-event. Thumbsup Aside from the possibility that a certain FBI director may be a wee bit too partisan for his own good.
