  • Advisers urge Trump to dance with Caitlyn Jenner at inauguration

  • FBI, 5 other agencies probe possible covert Kremlin aid to Trump

    You see it don’t matter if this is the biggest con game in the face of American history... their sole objective is to grind it deep into the brain of the American people that President Trump is illegitimate and the election stolen from Hitlery ! That is what I am beginning to hear more and more people say that the election was stolen from the beast!

    Bingo! You got it!

  • FBI, 5 other agencies probe possible covert Kremlin aid to Trump

    The informal, inter-agency working group began to explore possible Russian interference last spring, long before the FBI received information from a former British spy hired to develop politically damaging and unverified research about Trump, according to the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the inquiry.

    Oh, goody.  More leaks from our intelligence services. 

    However, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, a former chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that she believes that Russia's tactics did alter the election result.

    Oh really?  She has no proof of that.  If the election result was altered, it was directly because of the actual words contained in those emails - all true.  They are mad that Russia "rigged" the election by showing that the Democrats rigged the election against Bernie (who rolled over pathetically).

    To another point, I'm GLAD she's saying this.  Why?  It means, of course, the Democrats still can't take responsibility for their loss.  They are continuing to find things to blame as opposed to looking at the reasons they lost - no message, lack of campaign in swing states, Benghazi, Hillary putting classified information on an unsecure server, and pay to play are all ignored!

    During the campaign in July, he displayed ignorance that Russian-backed separatists had invaded Crimea in eastern Ukraine in 2014 and he called on Russia to hack away to uncover thousands of emails that Clinton had never made public after using a private server while secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

    THIS IS A LIE!  He never displayed ignorance.  Russia already annexed Crimea.  He was saying Russia wouldn't go further.  The media spun his statement to make it sound like he didn't know Russia annexed Crimea.  Secondly, he did not call on Russia to hack away to discover Hillary's deleted emails that she bleached.  It was a joke.  What was Russia supposed to hack?  Her server was defunct.  The emails were deleted.  The U.S. government didn't have them.  What were they supposed to hack?  Furthermore, the emails on that server were supposed to be personal and all about weddings and yoga.  What would they have discovered anyway?  (That is, unless the media believes Hillary is lying.)

    In a video the man can be heard saying he tried to light himself on fire as an act of protest.

    The man was taken to the hospital with burns. He is expected to be OK.

  • Trump Accuser Summer Zervos Files Defamation Suit Against President-Elect

    I don’t know if they can use this against him or not in court, but according to Gloria Allred, she asked to take a lie detector test, it was administered by someone she claims is an “experienced” and “recognized” polygrapher, and she passed.

  • Trump Accuser Summer Zervos Files Defamation Suit Against President-Elect

    01/17/2017 3:50:22 PM PST · 1 of 65
    Pinkbell
    The suit, filed Tuesday morning, claims Trump knew his statements about Zervos and his other accusers would subject them to "threats of violence, economic harm and reputational damage."

    Trump says they are lying, so of course he is going to respond and say so. If someone defends themselves from false accusations, that person is not responsible for the consequences to said accuser.

    "Ms. Zervos is willing to dismiss her lawsuit if he will retract his false statements about her and acknowledge that what Summer said about Mr. Trump and his alleged conduct is and was the truth," she said.

    Uh, yeah right. If Trump didn't do it, he is not going to admit to doing something he didn't do. Do you honestly think that would be the end of it? That would only be the beginning, and the media would then be able to brand him.

    For the record, when these accusations came out, I did a long blog post which detailed the accusations made by these women and showed questions one could have about these stories. Here is the part I did on Summer Zervos:

    SUMMER ZERVOS

    Summer Zervos was a former contestant on The Apprentice.  She was fired but still liked Trump.  For the record, Trump is denying the following account, but I went through it to point out some head scratcher things that she said.

    1. After being kicked off of The Apprentice, Zervos still admired Trump and “continued to see him as a possible mentor and a potential employer.”  She describes a meeting with him at his New York office in 2007 when she was visiting from California, during which she says he told her he would “love to have” her work for him, and wanted to meet again when he visited Los Angeles in the near future. He also allegedly kissed her on the lips both when they said hello and when they parted ways, something she says upset her but she ultimately chalked up to “some form of greeting.”

    She said that he kissed on the lips twice, but she decided it was "some form of greeting."  She said she called her parents who thought the same.  I can only speak to the fact that if I told my parents that, they would say that is odd - not "some form of greeting."

    He told her of her appearance on The Apprentice:

    He said that he was impressed with how I handled myself on The Apprentice. He said that he had never met anyone with my combination of being smart, attractive, and with the largest set of balls as I had.

    Just one thing, she was the FIRST person he fired on The Apprentice that season:  

    Zervos was the very first of 18 people eliminated on the first episode of the season. She got herself fired after repeatedly interrupting Donald Trump.

    Zervos’ teammates complained that she didn’t contribute anything to their project. Zervos only made one sales phone call then gave up — her job was to make as many calls as possible.

    http://gotnews.com/tag/summer-zervos/ 

    Why would he say that about someone who he fired first?  Why would he be so excited about hiring her when she was the first fired from the show?

    2.  Now we get to the hotel part of her story where she claimed he met her at a Beverly Hills hotel when he was in California:

    I was standing in the entryway. To the left was a bedroom and I saw Mr. Trump’s clothes on the bed. I did not see him but he greeted me with “Hello” in a sing-song voice. I thought a mistake had been made and Mr. Trump thought he was speaking with someone he was more familiar with.

    I walked farther into the living room, away from the bedroom, and sat down. I waited for about 15 minutes until Mr. Trump emerged. He had his suit on. I stood up and he came to me and started kissing me open-mouthed as he was pulling me toward him. I walked away and I sat down in a chair. He was in a low seat across from me and I made an attempt at conversation. He then asked me to sit next to him. I complied. He then grabbed my shoulder and started kissing me again very aggressively and placed his hand on my breast.

    I pulled back and walked to another part of the room. He walked up, grabbed my hand, and walked me into the bedroom. I walked out. He then turned me around and said, “Let’s lay down and watch some tele-tele.” He put me into an embrace and I tried to push him away. I pushed his chest to put space between us and I said, “C’mon, man, get real.” He repeated my words back to me — “get reeeeal” — as he began thrusting his genitals. He tried to kiss me again with my hand still on his chest and I said, “Dude, you’re tripping right now,” attempting to make it clear I was not interested. He said, “Well, what do you want.” I said, “I came to have dinner.” He said, “Okay, we’ll have dinner.” 

    First of all, if we are to believe this account, he forced himself on her three times, and she continued to stay.  This reads so unrealistically:

    ~"Hello" in a sing song voice?

    ~"Let's lay down and watch some tele-tele."  Who the heck uses the term "tele-tele?"

    ~"C'mon, man, get real."  That sounds like a phrase guys would use.  Maybe a woman might use that to a friend or a guy in some instances, but to someone who is forcing himself on you?

    ~"Get reeeeal"  Trump supposedly mocked her saying "get reeeeal" while thrusting his genitals.  Reading like a bad teen novel.

    ~"Dude, you're tripping right now"  This is slang and an odd phrase to use.  Still reading like a bad teen novel.

    ~Then he asked her what she wanted.  She said she came for dinner.  Now wait a minute, a guy forced himself on you three times, and you stayed for dinner?  So then Trump ordered dinner and discussed real estate and business with her with her the rest of the night:

    She says their dinner only involved business and real-estate talk, and that they met the next morning at his golf course in Palos Verdes. “I wondered if the sexual behavior was some kind of test,” Zervos says, “or whether or not I had passed.” 

    Say what?  If that happened, how could anyone consider it some kind of test?  That suggests that she thought he does that with women he wants to employ because either he only hires women who kiss him back OR he only hires women who don't kiss him back.  That's nonsensical.

    From the hotel. I drove straight to our family business to speak with my father, and he gave his advice. I decided to go to the golf course the next day. 

    What advice could her father possibly give?  No father would tell her to go if this occurred (unless she ignored her father).  I repeat, no father.     

    After receiving a tour of Trump’s golf course from the general manager, she says the latter called her and offered her a job for half the salary she was looking for. She says she continued to discuss business opportunities with Trump — though he reportedly told her to no longer use his private number — until he eventually told her he couldn’t afford to hire her.

    So she was willing to stay with a guy who forced himself on her three times, but she stuck around, and she was disappointed because he didn't offer a job with the salary she wanted.  Then, it seems that she kept trying to discuss business opportunities with Trump, but he never gave her an opportunity she wanted, said she couldn't use his number, and then said he couldn't afford to hire her.  The fact that Trump declined her on these three things could be reason enough to want to smear him. However, she still wanted to work for Trump:

    Even though Mr. Trump had sexually harassed me, I still wanted to get a job within the Trump Organization. I felt that since I had made it clear to him I was not interested in having a sexual relationship with him that he would give me a job that would be based solely on merit, and we would be able to work together.

    What?!!  That makes no sense.  She claimed he sexually assaulted her, but she still wanted a job with him because, what?  He wouldn't do it again?  Why would a woman want a job working for and with a man who sexually assaulted her?

    3.During Mr. Trump's fight for the Republican nomination, I saw and heard Mr. Trump nonstop on television and in the news. Customers at my restaurant asked about him, as they knew I was a contestant on The Apprentice. I always complimented and never said anything about what we had done at the Beverly Hills Hotel. However, this caused me a great deal of pain and anguish, and I felt the need to confront Mr. Trump and ask him to apologize for his behavior.

    I also thought he might have been embarrassed by his behavior, and this would provide him with the opportunity to clear the air. I had no idea about his behavior with other women at the time. Therefore, I contacted his secretary in April of 2016 and asked if I could reconnect with Mr. Trump. I did not tell her why I wanted to speak with him. she responded that, perhaps, his campaign team would follow up with me.

    So she contacted him to come to the restaurant to apologize?  Let's say he had done it.  Did she really expect him to, while he was running for President and surrounded by Secret Service, media, aides, etc. to go to her restaurant and apologize?  She waited until he was running for President to ask for that apology?

    She emailed Trump's secretary on April 14, 2016.  The text is as follows;

    Hello,

    I am certain that you are a very busy woman.  I am in an unique situation being that I am the only former Apprentice who operates a business where Mr. Trump's supporters can walk in, express their admiration for him and inquire about my experience.  Mr. Trump has a great deal of support in Huntington Beach, CA!  He has witnessed both my highs and lows operating a small business and I am pleased to report that business is good.  Sunny's restaurant has a long history of making people fee special.  We hire a diverse crew and hire anyone that is honest while working hard.  Mr. Trump is cut from the same cloth.

    I would greatly appreciate reconnecting at this time.  He will know my intentions are genuine.

    Thanks you,

    Summer Zervos

    She said she had contacted his secretary and then sent an email on April 21, 2016 (no mention of the April 14 email):

    I then wrote his assistant an email on April 21, 2016, asking her to send my email directly to Mr. Trump. In that email, I stated, "Your interest in me as a potential employee meant the world to me. Your interest in me as anything more blew my mind, and I lost my footing." I further said, "I have been incredibly hurt by our previous interaction." I ended by stating, "I hope to hear from you and wish you continued success." Mr. Trump did not reply.

    So incredibly hurt that she wanted to work for him after it?  She never specifically referenced the April 14, 2016 email, so I don't know if she admitted to sending that or not.  Again, if he did it, why contact him again?   Why praise him in this email and simultaneously expect an apology?  Why would she think he would apologize and do so while running for President at her restaurant surrounded with people?   "Hurt from a previous interaction" could have something to do with not being given a job.

    Article quotes from:

    http://nymag.com/thecut/2016/10/summer-zervos-trump-of-sexual-misconduct.html

    Some of the transcript from:

    https://www.bustle.com/articles/189744-the-transcript-of-summer-zervos-donald-trump-accusation-is-chilling-to-read

    4.  For Trumps' part, he says the whole thing is fiction - that he never met her at a hotel:

    “I vaguely remember Ms. Zervos as one of the many contestants on The Apprentice over the years. To be clear, I never met her at a hotel or greeted her inappropriately a decade ago. That is not who I am as a person, and it is not how I’ve conducted my life. In fact, Ms. Zervos continued to contact me for help, emailing my office on April 14th of this year asking that I visit her restaurant in California. 

    “Beyond that, the media is now creating a theater of absurdity that threatens to tear our democratic process apart and poison the minds of the American public. When Gloria Allred is given the same weighting on national television as the President of the United States, and unfounded accusations are treated as fact, with reporters throwing due diligence and fact-finding to the side in a rush to file their stories first, it’s evident that we truly are living in a broken system. 

    “Hillary Clinton can spend all of her time and money pushing complete lies against our campaign, but I refuse to fall victim to this vicious cycle of personal attacks. In the coming days I plan on addressing our nation in a more personal way to present my vision for how together we fight to bring back American jobs and defend our country against radical Islamic terrorism. I will take my message directly to the American people and bypass the unethical press that wants to see their candidate elected. Together, we will make America great again.” 

    https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/politics/2016/10/14/read-trump-response-summer-zervos-accusations/bqnRaoeDiKf2jensVCfa3J/story.html

    5.  Again, her story at a lot of "What the heck?" moments in it.  His rebuke matches up with her clearly wanting a job from Trump.  Could it be bitterness?  Her cousin thinks so:

    "I am completely shocked and bewildered by my cousin, Summer Zervos, and her press conference today. Ever since she was on The Apprentice she has had nothing but glowing things to say about Mr. Trump. For almost a decade, my cousin would talk about how much she looked up to Mr. Trump and viewed him as an inspiration – a success story she wanted to copy. Summer would also talk about how kind and caring Mr. Trump was on the show, and how he would even visit children in hospitals without telling the press. She has praised the good things he's done for her life, and in fact she converted her friends and our family to become Trump supporters even though we’ve never been active in politics before.

    “That was until Summer invited Mr. Trump to her restaurant during the primary and he said no. I think Summer wishes she could still be on reality TV, and in an effort to get that back she’s saying all of these negative things about Mr. Trump. That’s not how she talked about him before. I can only imagine that Summer’s actions today are nothing more than an attempt to regain the spotlight at Mr. Trump’s expense, and I don’t think it reflects well.” – John Barry, Mission Viejo, CA (first cousin of Summer Zervos)

    6.  Her lawyer is none other than Gloria Allred who was behind the Herman Cain supposed victims who came out when he was running for President and disappeared as soon as he dropped out.  She also was behind rumors of an October surprise that was supposed to take Romney out.  No need, of course, Romney took himself out.  She was a delegate at the DNC this past cycle.

    http://gotnews.com/breaking-trump-accuser-lawyer-gloriaallred-democrat-fundraiser-wikileaks-emails-tried-kill-romney-campaign/

    Here is a Wikileaks email where she goes back and forth with a Jordan Vaughn about the language in an invitation to a DNC reception.  This email back and forth was in May of 2016 where Gloria was already accusing him of sexual harassment.  At one point she says after receiving the first draft:

    Please delete the word ”fellow”. Also, his position on equal pay is unclear. I think you should delete that. Is there anything you can substitute for that, e.g. demeaning treatment of women in the work place or sexual harassment in the work place?

    This is the final draft they settled on:

    Friend – 

    Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States in 2016. As a lifelong advocate for women’s rights, this statement is frightening. Donald Trump has pledged to reverse the vast amounts of great progress we have made over the years. His demeaning treatment of women and his stance on the Supreme Court and issues such as abortion would reverse this progress and negatively impact millions of Americans across the country – and that is unacceptable. 

    The time to act is now. That is why I hope you will join myself, Tina Tchen, and Robbie Kaplan for a Democratic National Committee reception on May 31st at the home of Leatitia and Richard Garriott in New York. We will come together and discuss the upcoming race, and why we as Democrats must do everything we can to ensure a Democrat remains in the White House for the next four years. 

    RSVP now via the attached invite or below:

    https://finance.democrats.org/page/contribute/DLCReceptionMay31 

    I hope you will answer this important call to action.

  • Trump’s feud with John Lewis echoes a long, difficult relationship with African Americans

    01/17/2017 3:23:27 PM PST · 1 of 68
    Pinkbell
    This is why I have no choice but to keep open my Trump blog.  These people won't stop their relentless dishonesty.  I rank this right up there with that stupid star the media branded anti-Semitic as one of the most shameful, dishonest media attacks on Trump.  Let's address this article.

    First of all, I did an entire blog post in which I posted in entirety on Free Republic about how the media made Trump's response to John Lewis calling him an illegitimate President into a racist attack.  From a part I wrote yesterday:

    http://dtforpres.blogspot.com/2017/01/trump-criticizing-john-lewis-is-racist.html

    "Now, to the point - the media doesn't like that Trump has responded.  What can they do?  Why pull out the old racism attack line.  They are saying that because Trump said, "All talk, talk, talk - no actions or results," it means that Trump is ignoring the work and sacrifice Lewis made regarding civil rights.  Is that what Trump was getting at?  Of course not.  He was criticizing John Lewis record as a Congressman.  Will the media report this without inferring Trump is a racist?  Are there still Wooley Mammoths in existence?"

    I then chronicled headline after headline and article after article from MSM outlets all across the country which claim that Trump attacked this Civil Rights crusader on MLK weekend.  I continued:

    "...This was not about race.  It was about Trump responding to criticism.  Trump would have responded to a white person the same way.   Anyone who has watched him over the past year and a half would know that.  This was not about what he did for civil rights.  Trump never even came close to implying that.  He criticized him as "all talk" for saying he was not a legitimate President when his own district has a 17% poverty rate, higher than the national average of 13.5% and is number 14 on the list of 20 most dangerous cities in America.  Trump is saying that as opposed to criticizing the results of a free and fair election, worry about your district.  Is Lewis above criticism because of his history, his race, and MLK weekend? 

    Imagine for a second if the roles were reversed and this was a white Republican rep saying this about Obama.  The guy would have been skewered as a racist, and if Obama gave this exact same response Trump gave about focusing on his district, he would have gotten a round of applause.  As it is, Lewis is treated well by the gleeful media for saying the President-elect is not legitimate, and the media whines when the person who won the election responds.  The media has pulled out the tired old racist mantra again as opposed to dealing with the substance."

    But coming on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday weekend, it also reignited the passions around Trump’s difficult history with African Americans, the group of voters from whom he might be most alienated as he prepares to move into the White House this week.

    As I said, Trump's comments are completely irrelevant to MLK Day weekend.  Trump's history is the same as most Republicans - in fact he did better than McCain (who is now back in the good graces of liberals again) and Romney with the black community in terms of votes.

    The article sings the praises of his district, but as noted, the poverty rate is 17% (national average is 13.5%), and Atlanta is ranked 14/20 on list of most dangerous cities in the country.  The point is that while there are great areas of his district, there is work to be done, and that was what Trump meant.

    Trump’s attack on Lewis drew widespread condemnation across party lines, particularly given Lewis’s role in the fight for black voting rights.

    This is a lie.  It was the usual cadre of RINOs/NeverTrumpers like Egg McMuffin, Ben Sasse, Bill Kristol, Michael Steele (from MSNBC), and some Missouri state representative the Washington Post dug up.

    Trump’s harsh rhetoric about Hispanics, Muslims and women was one of the hallmarks of his campaign,...

    I would like the Washington Post to bring up negative things Trump said about Hispanics.  Trump talked about illegal immigration from Mexico, but what were his specific attacks on Hispanic American citizens?

    As far as Muslims, Trump's main goal is to ensure that those who are radicalized and are affiliated with ISIS and/or don't respect our Constitution (support Sharia) don't come in.  His position to ban immigration from countries compromised by terrorism is perfectly reasonable.

    As far as women, they will of course bring out the tape, accusers (see blog post), and past statements made on shows like Stern:

    Sure, they will bring up Megyn Kelly (and use their made up inference he was talking about her period blood because didn't finish a sentence despite having no proof) Heidi Cruz (while a stupid retweet - it was in response to an attack on Melania, and Rosie, but to say he made attacking women a "hallmark" of his campaign?  That makes it sound like he ran a campaign platform on attacking women.  I listened to the majority of his rally speeches, and I don't recall him attacking women as part of his stump speech.

    Trump started his presidential campaign with huge disadvantages among African Americans, in part because of his years-long questioning of whether President Obama was a U.S. citizen.

    The rumor originated with Hillary's campaign.  Contrary to the media narrative, it had nothing to do with race, or Trump would not have questioned Cruz.  Trump would not have questioned any black man running if it was about race.  He didn't question once opponent Carson.  He wouldn't question someone like Booker.  He questioned the same reason a lot of people did (if you look at polls) because of Obama's unique childhood.  If it was a white Democrat who was rumored to have been born in Europe, you honestly don't think Trump would have questioned him too?

    Trump also drew criticism for taking out a full-page ad in New York newspapers urging the death penalty for five black and Hispanic teenagers accused of raping a woman in Central Park.

    I just saw a documentary on this, and a lot of people thought they were guilty at the time and were furious.  With confessions on tape, they were found guilty.  Now they say those were false confessions, but at the time, one can understand the anger of Trump.  It reflected the sentiments of many people then.

    In the closing weeks of the campaign, Trump began appealing to black voters to give him a chance. Speaking at rallies, to overwhelmingly white audiences, Trump described black people as living “in hell,” stuck in crumbling, crime-ridden neighborhoods and failing schools: “What do you have to lose?” he asked.

    This is a generalization that leads to dishonesty.  Trump was referring to problems in the inner city and pointing out that the Democrats do not fix them but use those issues to get the votes of African Americans and then disappear until it's the next election.

    Andra Gillespie, a political scientist at Emory University in Atlanta, said if Trump was serious about reaching out to the black community, he would have to take responsibility for a campaign whose tone was “divisive at best, seriously offensive at worst” and “dangerous” with reports of an increase in racist behavior and actions directed at minorities by some whites. She said he will have to meet with and apologize to the civil rights community and young activists in the Black Lives Matter movement.

    Excuse me?  Who was the one paying people to cause violence at Trump rallies? Who was the one that had protesters so violent that people were attacked trying to enter and exit Trump events?  Who forced Trump to cross a highway barrier?  Who broke down barriers outside of events and fought with police?  Who attacked that man his Chicago and drug him by his car because he was white and supported Trump?  Who kidnapped and tortured a disabled Trump supporter - threatening to kill him?  How many of these incidents of Trump supporters supposedly attacking people turned out to be hoaxes?  A lot!

    Trump doesn't have to meet with and apologize to anybody.  Black lives matter should apologize for calling for dead cops and saying cops should be fried like bacon. 

    “If Donald Trump cared about black people, he wouldn’t have denigrated the president with those claims of birtherism ,” he said. Hughley, who in the late 1990s toured with Harvey as part of the popular “Kings of Comedy,” said Trump was more comfortable with black entertainers. “You’d rather see us run the football than run the country.”

    I already addressed the birther issue, but if people like Steve Harvey, Jim Brown, and Ray Lewis have programs that can help connect with some in the inner cities, give them a chance.  Democrat politicians have failed in areas like Chicago and Detroit - Dems have run those cities for decades!  I commend them for putting aside differences and working for this country.

    Some political observers say Carson’s appointment is an indication that Trump is not serious about improving the lives of people in struggling communities.

    What an insult to a fine man like Dr. Carson who is obviously brilliant.

    Michael Eric Dyson, a sociology professor at Georgetown University, said that in touting Carson and Harvey as his urban policy team, Trump is practicing “affirmative action in the worst sense of that term.”

    These people are beyond nuts.  They are deranged.

    The leftists believe Christopher Steele is the beginning of the end of Trump. One nut with an avatar that says “Madame President” says that if Chris Steele, The Independent, and The Guardian can stop Trump, we no longer can hold it over them that we helped save them from Hitler! (We share a land mass with people this stupid!)

    This was supposed to be opposition research, right? If it was opposition research that was credible, why didn’t the Republican opponents or the Democrats (who eventually got it) use it?

    The leftists are all aTwitter over this, so I thought I would post it. It talks about how the FBI supposedly sat on this and focused on the email investigation into Hillary instead. A scan of the articles in this newspaper seems to indicate to me it is leftist. It's a UK paper, so while I've heard of it, I'm not very familiar with it.

    Mid article they talk about John McCain. This didn't just fall into McCain's lap. He actively went searching for it by sending an emissary to get it.

    I bet Trump wishes he could take back his McCain endorsement. With folks like McCain on your side, who needs enemies?

    Here's the thing - if this thing was so serious and legit, why are there errors in it? Why couldn't any of the media outlets who saw this (the majority of whom would have loved to have pounded the nail in Trump) confirm it so they could run with it? Why haven't any of the 17 intelligence agencies been able to confirm it? Obviously one of them was involved in the leak about it to CNN, although we don't know which one. Obama/Biden were briefed, and based on what we have heard, they weren't alarmed by it. WikiLeaks has a perfect track record in verifying documents and says this is a fraud.

    We will not hear the end of this. You have Rep. Lewis and others who are using this to try to delegitimize his Presidency. All you hear now is Russia, Russia, Russia. In fact, Russian Troll or Putinbot are the new racist in terms of leftist insults.

    I hope this is fully investigated and proven to be a fraud so we don't have to keep hearing about it.

    First of all - same polls conducted by same people who got the election results wrong.

    Second of all - incoming Presidents do not have to deal with the crap that Donald Trump has had to deal with. He has dealt with protests, recounts, popular vote whining, Russia, Comey, fake news, racism accusations, premature impeachment talks, etc. His transition as far as picking people has been smooth and transparent, yet people (per polls) have a problem with the transition, in my opinion, because media reports are so critical. Obama had a media swooning honeymoon.

    We hope Americans are smart enough to see through the B.S., and he did get elected, but the media will be terrible. Granted, the media is not as powerful as it was under Bush and Bush didn’t fight back, but the media played a part in destroying Bush. That is their goal with Trump - ruin him so badly it causes even his supporters to turn on him.

    Horowitz wrote that he will explore “allegations that Department or FBI policies or procedures were not followed” in connection with both letters, but his probe will extend beyond that. He wrote that he also will explore “allegations that Department and FBI employees improperly disclosed non-public information” — which is perhaps a reference to Giuliani, who seemed to claim at one point he had insider FBI knowledge. And Horowitz wrote that his inquiry will extend back to Comey’s July announcement that he was recommending the Clinton base be closed without charges.

    This means it will look into how Comey said they weren't pressing charges but then proceeded to criticize Hillary as "extremely careless" in dealing with classified material.

    Question - Is this person going to be gone when Trump gets in there? Meaning, does Trump appoint a new inspector general? If so, he has 8 days for an investigation. Why wait so long?

    These people just can't accept they lost because the American people rejected Hillary and her policies. First they protest, then try a recount, blame Russia (If we accept Russia hacked - the info from the DNC & emails was still real), blame Comey, blame fake news, blame the electoral college, call it a whitelash, etc. They attacked Trump as being unable to accept the election results and insult him as immature, unstable, etc. Imagine for a second if he behaved this way! These people get away with it in the media because the media is run by leftists!

    They wonder why he is still in campaign mode. It's because he is still fighting them. He won't get the Obama honeymoon. He won't get the pied piper media treatment Obama got. My goodness, the left is trying to literally find ways to stop him before he takes office, will protest his inauguration, and want to get him impeached as soon as possible. I'd love to see the lefties deal with it this if it was their President. Of course, that won't happen because the media is biased.

    Obama should have kept the missile defense shield. However, Obama suddenly taking a hardline on Russia and imposing sanctions, tossing people out of the U.S. and moving troops right before Trump takes office is ridiculous. Why did he wait? He's only doing this to impede Trump in his efforts to work on relations with Russia. Obama knows if Trump undoes his last minute actions, Trump will be accused of being a KGB agent, Putin's puppet, etc.

    We are continuing to escalate things with Russia, continually ramping up the tension. You have folks like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Rubio, and the Democrats continuing to ratchet things up. Hillary Clinton was ready to treat cyber crimes as an act of war and shoot down Russia planes over Syria. It seems to me the elite/globalists want or are careening us to WWIII. They have willing sheople in the Democrat faithful who have embraced the thing they once decried under George Bush - neocon foreign policy.
