    The GOP led senate panel has backed up what the intelligence community has been saying. No doubt Trump will disagree with them, as his handlers in the Kremlin want.

    Good to see that some Republicans believe in putting country above Trump and party.

    Wait until they actually do something about it before giving them any praise.

    But our Trump water carriers keep insisting that there was no interference. Im so confused on who to believe, a bipartisan panel or those who blindly follow Trump without question.

    True, but given Nunes' whitewash that bordered on treason, at least this is something.

    And Mexico, Germany, France, the EU, Canada, ect. all helped Clinton.

    Whats the point?

    Na. The conclusion (which was correct) was that Russia moved against Clinton not necessarily for Trump.

    Na. They whitewashed the part of the investigation that focused on the Trump campaign's involvement with Russians.

    Yeah, kind of a pointless finding.

    There isn’t any. The left must be disappointed yet again.

    You must have inside knowledge from Mueller's team to know for sure that there was no cooperation between the Trump campaign and Russia. Just one thing...if there was none, why did Trump and his people continually lie about connections with Russia?

    They don’t need inside info. Dear Leader tells them what to think, done.

    If the leftist media repeats a lie enough, then it must be true.

    So Trump’s people didn’t really forget all those meetings with Russians and Trump didn’t try to orchestrate a coverup of Jr’s meeting at Trump tower?

    The media is good. They have Trump so fooled he keeps trying to obstruct.

    It's always ironic how Trumpsters accuse the "fake news" of lying and how Trump frequently calls out someone as being dishonest when Trump himself is a pathological liar, or to borrow from his way of speaking, the biggest liar in the history of the presidency. And I suppose the "rightist" media never lies and is a fountain of eternal truths.

    Of course, it's very telling that no Trumpster here has ever directly answered the question of why Trump and his associates have continually lied about meetings with Russians and business connections with Russians if they are so innocent. If Trump is innocent, he should meet with Mueller to help him out in any way possible to determine if someone on his team conspired with a hostile foreign government to influence our election. That is, if he is innocent.

    I think it is hilarious that at this point people still think Russia didn't buy both of them. That's the truly funny part.

    Hah. Maybe copping to Russia having helped elect him in 2016 was a prerequisite to getting any help from Russia next time around. :rolleyes: He's really gonna need a big boost from *somebody* in 2020, since he keeps stepping on his own party's messages in the interests of keeping the media spotlight on himself. Plus his trade wars and willingness to keep expanding his list of tariffs are starting to carve holes in support from the farm belt.

    Sure they're going to get some handouts, but they don't really want handouts (which will not cover their losses anyway): they want export markets, imperfect as the terms may have been. The fact that western states' soybean farmers are so desperate that they can end up in deals involving shipment of soy to Brazil these days would certainly seem to make for fond memories of the prior "terrible terms" that Trump was ranting about with respect to Chinese soy buyers before he launched his trade war. Has Trump ever looked at a map? We know he's not a big student of economics. Maybe picture books would enlighten him. Washington State to Brazil, vs Washington State to China, let's see.... where did Trump get lost on the way to making MAGAbucks for the left-behinds? ​

    Meanwhile Putin and pals are like ROFLMAO, man, look at this guy go! Backing Trump has proved so entertaining that even the sanctions have been worth it...
