Senator Scott Responds To Brennanís Trump-Russia Collusion Op-Ed:
dailycaller.com ^ | 8:41 PM 08/18/2018 | Scott Morefield

Posted on 08/19/2018 3:35:44 PM PDT by Paladin2

“If there is a scintilla of evidence that the president colluded with the Russians and Brennan had that evidence, the entire world would already know,” Scott said during a Fox News appearance with host Neil Cavuto.

In a Thursday op-ed published in the New York Times, Brennan based his claim that President Trump colluded with Russia on the fact that then-candidate Trump “publicly called upon Russia to find the missing emails of Mrs. Clinton” during the 2016 campaign.

“By issuing such a statement, Mr. Trump was not only encouraging a foreign nation to collect intelligence against a United States citizen, but also openly authorizing his followers to work with our primary global adversary against his political opponent,” Brennan wrote.

Responding to Brennan’s contention directly, Scott said, “So the fact of the matter is, a part of what he said in his op-ed is that the president’s public comments suggest collusion. I think that’s ridiculous.”

“Scott” who?
I guess I’ll need to read down into the bowels of the article to find out which Scott is the speaker. I think they mean Tim Scott the senator.

It’s pretty clear, even for the casual drive-by reader....

Title, reference to TV host in first sentence, etc.

Wasn’t Hillary’s server already taken down when Trump made that comment? How else would they have known emails were missing in the first place? I thought that was why nobody with half a brain took his comments as anything other than a joke.

How in the hell was this guy ever able to become head of the CIA??

Holy keeripes! We need to look at everything that happened under him for 8 years, to find out what damages he’s done.

Now I see it!
My eye first went to Brennan’s name, the ex-CIA man who wants to ruin our president.

As Rush said about somebody else “I hope he fails!”.

“Trump “publicly called upon Russia to find the missing emails of Mrs. Clinton” during the 2016 campaign.”
____________________

Hillary’s missing 30k+ emails are the property of the US Archives. Every citizen has the right to seek the return of your property any country in possession of the emails.

PDJT should formally request every G20 country and Russia to have their Intel chiefs to search for the emails and arrange for their return to the US Archives.

Fusion GPS, Hillary’s campaign, the DNC, CIA’s Brennan, and Obama officials—were all focused on destroying Donald Trump.
The FBI got involved using very suspect methodologies. One crucial question is how early this all happened?.........

ITEM——Hillary Clinton ran in the 2008 and 2016 democratic primaries——and in the 2016 general election.

ITEM——S/C Mueller “uncovered” that the “Russian collusion scheme” apparently “materialized sometime in 2014.

Now, here’s the $64,000 question not addressed....Why didn’t the CIA or the NSA or the FBI pick this up?

Were Obama’s PDB’s falsified? Probably-—Brennan knew the Halfrican was too stupid to catch on.

Brennan got outed as calculatedly working the phony “pee dossier” into Obama’s PDB.

Dates are important b/c Snowden’s’ revelations indicate government spying apparatus began capturing all electronic data on Americans in 2001.

The Obama police state had a lot of help-—our govt mastered the capture of all keystrokes, telephone calls and digital traffic by 2005.

This we know:

<><> (A) traffic travels through FBI computers, and,

<><> (B) the CIA keeps constant tabs on Russian spies in Russia....... and elsewhere.

Again. Why didn’t the CIA or the NSA or the FBI pick this up?

Brennan has an incredibly bad sense of humor. Trump was making a joke.

I wondered that also. It's Senator Tim Scott, black Republican from South Carolina who's upholding Trump.

Had to dig into another link on that site to find out he's a Republican. I knew he was, but a lot of others don't. More sterling reportage by the Daily Scrawler.

Brennan, like ever other worthless RAT, has no sense of humor and no ability whatsoever to understand satire.

I may have a bad recollection of the spoutings of "The Won".

"Smidgen" is apparently a better word choice to use when mocking our former fearless feckless leader.

So that was it? The joke he made at a rally?

Time for new clearance laws. They asked for it.

I’m lazy.

That’s just how the posting was rolling and I wasn’t going to clean it up. (If you have issues with postings, take it up with “governsleastgovernsbest” and the mods...)

I think the first two words of the Title covers it.

In other areas too, it would seem. That's why they beat and dress their women in tents and prefer to bugger ten-year-old boys.
