That makes no sense. I've already seen in the news this week that Trump offered to buy the emails from Wikileaks. This is implying that he gave them to wikileaks.

I guess just keep tossing darts. Something is bound to be correct.

Can we all agree that Trump having the government release the JFK files is a good thing?


You do realize that the files being released was agreed to in 1992. No matter who was president, it was happening. Although, iím sure you would have found a way to blame Hillary for their release

Well Hillary did win a share of the White House in 1992.

it's just that Trump was saved from bankruptcy by russian loans, had his towers heavily bought out by russian oligarchs, had his son say that they don't need US banks because they have so much money pouring in through russian sources, hired manafort who was such a known russian agent at the time that even glenn beck was putting up alarms, switched the gop platform to pro-russia immediately after the hiring, hired tillerson who won some big russian friendship medal and headed exxon who had a big deal with russia quashed because of sanctions, won't release his tax returns which would probably indicate how much russian financial ties he currently has, had don jr respond to a promise of dirt on hillary from russian sources with "i love it!", and a bunch of other stuff that we could easily google right now.

but these are just darts you know. let's get to those damn leaks!

no, the Russians who did the hacking gave them to their asset Julian Assange after informing the Trump campaign about them.

So the Russians hacked Hillary's emails?

The ones she had on an unsecure server, then wiped with a cloth or something?

And which Podesta had secured with his password: Pas$w0rd and Runner3456?


Then they gave them to wikileaks, because they didn't have access to the world wide web themselves to release them?


Now if all of this is true, are we then to assume that those emails were accurate?


I'll give you the first part, when you give us the second.


Although the assumption that Julian Assange, a freedom of information guy if there ever was one, is pulling for Russia is a bit of a stretch don't you think?

Good article about why Manafort indictment isn't going to hurt Trump at all.

From a never-Trump site by a never-Trump writer.

Manafort is the low hanging fruit and I agree with the article that these current charges have nothing to do with collusion or Trump directly other than as a window into the "best people" that Trump associates with. Manafort received no money directly from the campaign but he's never done anything in his life for free so who was paying him ?

George Papadopoulos on the other hand should scare the crap out of them.

CNN just can't help themselves. They are the fake news poster child

First they try to be snarky by this headline:

Trump asks Japan to build cars in the US. It already does.

The lede is a selectively edited quote to imply Trump doesn't know Japan builds cars in the US.

Quote

"Try building your cars in the United States instead of shipping them over. Is that possible to ask? That's not rude. Is that rude? I don't think so," Trump told executives from local automakers during a trip to Japan.

Then they go on to casually talk about the car business.

They know they can get away with blatant lies about Trump because they are CNN


THEN they double down with another fake news story about Trump and the Koi fish freedinggate scandal that shows Trump is a buffoon.

Which also backfires once anyone with a brain looks at the story.

CNN: fake news; leaders.

Trump: America's leader

I guess this shouldn't be surprising.

Read this twitter thread about how the new tax bill seems to be written to benefit exactly somebody like Trump in so many ways.

The Republican tax bill looks like it was written by Donald Trump’s accountants and tax lawyers, and I’m not even joking. 1/

It's not surprising, because Trump is a business owner, and when you reduce taxes on businesses, then people exactly like Trump will benefit and want to expand their businesses.

I did read the link....it is very simple minded to assume trump is the only person / entity / corporation that uses that uses the tax laws and corporate laws to set up a structure....because none of the other wealthy families would use them....just the trumps!!! Very sound logic there - even for you.
