Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Hillary Clinton reportedly said Monday that Congress must "do their jobs" alongside the Russia special counsel, but that facts damning to the administration are already public, hours after the Justice Department indicted former Trump campaign aides in the ongoing probe.

Clinton said President Trump is turning a blind eye to Russian attempts to interfere in American democracy, despite warnings from the intelligence community that agree the Kremlin attempted to and probably still is meddling in U.S. affairs.

"I'll leave it to the investigators to decide whether or not there was collusion, or conspiracy but we don't need a lengthy investigation to tell us that Trump is ignoring the intelligence community about an urgent threat, refusing to stand up to an adversary who has already attacked us, and abdicating his responsibility to preserve, protect and defend our national security interests."

She added, "We know everything we need to know, we just have to make sure that members of Congress do their jobs and hold the president accountable."

Trump has repeatedly dismissed the intelligence community's accusations of Moscow hacking the 2016 election as a "fake news" excuse from Democrats over their unexpected loss.

Top social media companies Facebook, Google and Twitter are also under scrutiny for their role in Russia's attempt to influence and sow discord during last year's heated presidential campaign.

What do you mean, #1?

I thought it already has came up and she is responsible for the whole thing.

In fact I think I remember reading a thread or 36 about it right here on this web site.

I'm also certain that Sarah Huckabee Sanders mentioned it just yesterday in the briefing.

I don't care. Time to administer a high colonic. Whatever comes out, come out. Whomever goes to prison, goes to prison. Mueller is the swamp drainer Trumpites voted for.

Hillary Copperfield wants you to focus on her eyes, not her hands.

Seems to me this happened before Trump, mostly during Obama's reign.
