Posted on 07/17/2018 7:35:10 AM PDT by Avalon Memories
Donald Trump did not say the Russians didn't meddle in the U.S. election. Remember that when you read heated statements from leftist shills or people like Jeff Flake and John McCain. The left is in full lie mode, and leftists will say anything while assuming that their audience will never actually hear the truth.
Here's what really happened.

Our agencies are still not interested in who actually took money from Russia, and returned favors. That would be Podesta (Clintons brain), Fusion GPS, and the Clintons themselves.
And they most certainly are not interested in who is in bed with China, and the Saudis. And I might add, Ukraine, and Muslim Brotherhood too, while were at it. They do not want to know who actually colluded with foreign powers.
Remember that when you read heated statements from leftist shills or people like Jeff Flake and John McCain.
Bush League Republicans are Democrats in R jerseys.
Agreed except for McCain. He is in it for himself first, last and always. I suppose there have been plenty of awful people who have served in Congress during the 229 years of our history, but McCain is right up there among the worst in my opinion.
They can't disclose what they know because "national security." That is getting old.
Thanks for posting.
Great article; thanks for the post. I suspected that the swamp rats protested too much and this article confirms their treachery (once again).
AND he is pushing for Cindy McCain to finish out his term at the end of this month.
I found a new song to send to your leftists friends and family
mwahahaha poke poke poke!!!
I can’t believe how unhinged the news is about the Putin trump conference...
The Mueller FBI laundered a bogus story through Yahoo news to get a FISA warrant, they are probably wondering what they can get from all this FAKE ass news..
Yours is the first post, but a second one at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3671563/posts is getting more replies.
The most important point was what Putin stressed several times but was largely lost in translation, namely:
That regardless of who hacked into DNC and HRC servers, the “damaging” information that was leaked were facts, not propaganda. The damaging facts related to the DNC rigging the primaries against Sanders to assure Clinton would be nominated. Nobody is disputing it was rigged - the entire DNC leadership resigned over the scandal.
Putin’s point was that here you have undisputed evidence of illegal election tampering by the DNC that actually affected the results of an election, and to distract from that known corruption, the intelligence community under Obama conspired to focus on who hacked the servers and who leaked the information. The entire Russia hacking Trump collusion narrative is nothing but a distraction from the real crime which is being completely ignored!
Another point he made with Wallace was that at the time all of this happened Trump was not expected by anyone to have a shot at the nomination - the Russians had no reason to study him or spend resources learning about how his being elected might impact Russia strategically. Trump was not a concern at the time.
Putin tried to make these important points several times with Trump and several times with Chris Wallace but Wallace kept interrupting and the translations were often unclear.
I thought Putin came off as extremely transparent and credible. It would be great to have a Russian language scholar go over the transcripts and clean up any ambiguities.
I know that when an interpreter is translating on the fly, there is often a problem with complex sentences where a qualifying phrase is used but it is unclear which part of the sentence is being qualified.
For example, if I say “Please feed my friend the chicken.” Am I saying please feed my friend who is a chicken, or am I saying please feed my friend the meat of a chicken? A comma would help but there is no punctuation in the spoken word.
Anyway, I thought Putin had a lot of very compelling points and I hope more careful attention is given to what he said.
Thanks. No worries. All I care about is countering the manufacturered hysteria over the Trump-Putin meet. Even some here were buying into that crap yesterday. I’m at work and posted this thread on my cell phone. Not easy or fun, but necessary. So if there’s another thread with the same piece and folks are reading it, that’s good in my estimation.
Great post. Smart, insightful and very helpful in furthering our understanding of what has been happening. Thanks for it. :)
