Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon has described the Trump Tower meeting between the president’s son and a group of Russians during the 2016 election campaign as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic”, according to an explosive new book seen by the Guardian.

He is particularly scathing about a June 2016 meeting involving Trump’s son Donald Jr, son-in-law Jared Kushner, then campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in New York

Soon after, Wolff writes, Bannon remarked mockingly: “The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor – with no lawyers. They didn’t have any lawyers.
“Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.”

Bannon also speculated that Trump Jr had involved his father in the meeting. “The chance that Don Jr did not walk these jumos up to his father’s office on the twenty-sixth floor is zero.”

Sorry; looks like it was Trump Jr, Manafort and Kushner but the connection Trump himself is circumstantial in these quotes...

Because the FCC requires 3 / 2 party split -- Anjit was probably put forward by the GOP and confirmed by Obama.

But it was the GOP that confirmed him as the Chairman and therefore set the agenda.

LOL......yes parties suggest names on judges and positions like this. But no matter what contortions you go through, President's appoints and Senate confirms.

Wait. You think the interviewer won this argument? I thought the guest made a very clear argument and the interviewer was too stupid to understand what he was saying.

LOL.....the interviewer totally had his lunch handed to him. Total beat down.

lol at people even thinking "rip internet". NN rules weren't in place from 1970 to 2015 and nobody cared. The FCC doesn't matter and will be completely replaced as soon as Trump leaves office. The issue is competition. As long as there is competition, the internet will be totally fine because ISP have to compete for business.

Also, ISPs can’t differentiate between two streams of encrypted data just by looking at it. An encrypted blob is an encrypted blob. ISPs can’t differentiate by looking at your DNS queries if your name resolution is local (as with Blockstack). Math and code will win against no net neutrality rules.

Remember when NN was done and everything was withheld from the public..........oh I forgot Google got a crack at it before finalizing. Typical Obama.

Enjoy this beat down.
