Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, January 23, 2018

The Washington Post is reporting that Republicans are close to releasing a memo written by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) summarizing classified documents concerning the FBI's Russia-Trump investigation. Opponents say it was unlawful handling of classified information to release it in mass to lawmakers let alone the public. Several Democrats who have read the documents the memo is based on say the memo is a distorted and misleading document. When reporters ask Democrats to explain why the memo is misleading they say they are unable to explain because the information is classified. Republicans and Russian social media bots have been calling for the memo to be released for some time. Rolling Stone wrote about the Russia-memo-GOP connection last week. "The #ReleaseTheMemo craze is not just wishful right-wing thinking. It's not simply your run-of-the-mill right-wing plot to distract Trump voters from Stormy Daniels, "---holes," and the shutdown. It's one more piece of powerful evidence of how Russia and its Twitter bots are teaming with right-wing Republicans in a concerted pro-Trump propaganda campaign. The actual memo, as soon as its contents are leaked or revealed in full, is bound to disappoint those screaming for its release -- and sure to raise red flags about the sources and methods of the House Republican staffers who put it together. But that won't stop the next Russian-Republican propaganda ---storm from taking over social media; in fact, it guarantees exactly the opposite. The American right is doing the work of Russian bots. Which, come to think of it, might just be something that needs investigating."

Schiff also made a striking claim: He said that in allowing the memo to be accessed in a classified setting by House Republicans, Nunes has violated an agreement with the FBI and the Justice Department. Schiff added that its public release would also violate that agreement. The GOP leaders on the intel committee have allowed members of Congress to access the document, but Democrats charge this is merely an effort to arm them with misleading talking points to attack the FBI on Trump's behalf.

Nadler calls GOP memo criticizing FBI 'profoundly misleading'

Rep. Jerry Nadler, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, says he considers a GOP memo critical of top FBI officials "profoundly misleading" after seeing the highly classified source material Republicans used to craft it.

Few lawmakers have gotten access to the materials House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes relied on to compile his four-page memo, which the committee circulated among all House members last week but has not made public. But Nadler said in a letter released Tuesday that he and Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte recently had a chance view the classified materials.

"Those materials tell a very different story than the conspiracy theory concocted by Chairman Nunes and being repeated in the press," Nadler wrote in the letter to Goodlatte.

We are witnessing a crime, treason, committed by members of Congress. The Democrats need to make one thing clear to the Republicans. We are not in power now and so the Republicans can run wild abusing their power but at some point in the future, be it soon or be it not so soon, we will investigate and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law any treasonous acts committed by these traitors. Same thing with taxes. I've said it before, for every dollar of taxes they save the billionaires now, two will be taxed later when we take power. Power is like a pendulum and with this crowd of thugs, when that pendulum swings there is going to be hell to pay.

It is easy to see Russia favored Trump over Hillary and provided at least $150,000 of Trump support alongside a Republican $1 billion campaign (so at least .00015%). Republicans engineered an electoral victory inside a popular defeat. Can anyone tell me what dirt Russia provided that the Republicans didn't already know and broadcast?

We may all be incensed that Russia interfered in our 2016 election. This concern is illegitimate so long as we continue to insist we have the exclusive right to interfere in free and fair elections in other countries as we do frequently. When we impose sanctions we should promise to stop those practices ourselves.

Trump staffers who have accepted Russian money are in big trouble. Campaign donation violations, such as Stormy Daniels payments could be another problem. Some may eventually be traced to Trump, a process likely to take longer than his first term.

If Trump commits perjury during Mueller interviews he will be in trouble. Republicans won't care if he lies. Any consequence requires a 2018 Democratic majority. But he might just take the fifth and forgo a second term.

" But he might just take the fifth and forgo a second term."

Or ... with Junior and Kushner on the hot seat as leverage, Trump might just agree to resign and take his chances with Pence's pardon for the whole lot of them.

First there was the constant drip drip drip of the Russian collusion which went away and then Russia was hacking the election which went away as soon as Dems were reminded that if that happened it was under Obama. Then it turned into Russia was trying to get Trump elected which there is no proof. Now that there is proof of an FBI cover up and Obama's DOJ involvement the Dems say "nothing to see here" and are calling those exposing it "treasonous." It's all coming around.

Take this as a respectful request:
So refute them with proof, not just your opinions. Cite that proof that you claim shows Russia was trying to get Trump elected. Help educate him on how and where he is wrong.
If a cited refutation of one, like his last sentence, would require you to prove a negative, then ask HIM to cite his proof.
Your opinion : 'That is not true.' doesn't get us anywhere.
Do you claim to know everything? If you don't, then ask to be educated on what has him making claims that you think are lies, or cite your own proof that they are lies.
Please.

A January 2017 assessment by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) stated that Russian leadership favored presidential candidate Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, and that Russian president Vladimir Putin personally ordered an "influence campaign" to harm Clinton's electoral chances and "undermine public faith in the US democratic process."

We assess with high confidence that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence
campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election, the consistent goals of which were to
undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary
Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency.

We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump.
When it appeared to Moscow that Secretary Clinton was likely to win the election, the Russian influence campaign
then focused on undermining her expected presidency.

Yes, in that thread you will see I twice mentioned Trump calling reporters "scum" and "among the worst people in the world". Here's one link, but you can google your own:

And at nearly every rally, the brash billionaire reams the press as "dishonest," "disgusting," "slime" and "scum," calling political reporters the worst types of human beings on earth, prompting his crowds of thousands of supporters to turn, without fail, to jeer and sometimes curse at the press.

Before the goalposts started moving, it was "collusion with Putin". Best friends they said. Totally working together they said.

Of course, anyone paying attention to what was going on the ground in Syria knew it was ridiculous. Fantasy doesn't mesh with reality.

Then it was colluding with Russia in general, not Putin exclusively.

Then the nonsense GPS Fusion dossier. It speaks for itself, even if Christopher Steele won't.

Then it was .0000035 percent of Facebook's 28 billion dollar yearly ad revenue that stole the entire election, because Russia. Easily, the most effective advertising campaign in the history of the known universe. Imagine if they had spent 810 times as much, like the Trump and Clinton campaigns collectively did? Again, all you have to do is look at the numbers in context and it makes absolutely no sense to anyone not in hysterics.

The only ties to Russia are those who were seeking personal enrichment, which is consistent with conclusions drawn in Wolff's Fire and Fury, that all those tied to Trump (except Bannon) were focused as a group on their mission of personal enrichment and losing the election.

The absolute best case scenario is an obstruction charge because Trump is a moron, and nobody from the Obama administration goes to jail over misuse of the FISA court with the fabricated dossier.

The DNC hack was just a tiny piece of the puzzle.

The Federal Government knew back in August 2016 that Russian President Vladimir Putin was waging an extraordinary cyberwar on the U.S. presidential campaign, both to discredit the election and try to help Donald Trump win.

The Obama administration did not publicly acknowledge any of this until after the election, in December.

By now everybody should know that Nunes is a tool of the Trump administration who has been imbedded in the House Intelligence Committee to gin up as much mayhem as possible to save Trump from the political gallows.

If/when this "memo" gets leaked (and it will because congresspeople are always vying for attention), we're probably going to see a compilation of raw and unverified intel that has been cherry-picked by staffers to trick the public into believing that Trump is being unfairly prosecuted and is, in reality, pure as the driven snow.

I don't see this as anything more than part of multi-pronged attack on the credibility of the Mueller investigation to help Trump escape his just due.

And this, just like all the other half-backed ideas Donald Trump has come up with, won't do a damn thing to override or nullify Mueller's final conclusions.

The Justice Department stands up to a reckless Republican

It's about time. After suffering mostly in silence as Republican political hacks and Fox state TV threw one wacky allegation after another in their direction, after President Trump slurred and demeaned FBI employees, after Attorney General Jeff Sessions failed to muster the courage to rebut baseless accusations against prosecutors and the FBI, and after a United States senator laughably accused the FBI of harboring a "secret society" (note to Wisconsin: You can do much better than Republican Sen. Ron Johnson) the professionals at the Justice Department decided they had endured quite enough.

On Thursday, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd -- a political appointee -- sent off a letter to the conspiracy addicted Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.).

Our intelligence community has long insisted Russia has meddled in our election. No proof has ever been offered which would flip the election in favor of Trump on account of Russia. But, there are good reasons to believe that some meddling took place. The better explanation, is that Republicans engineered an electoral victory in spite of a popular vote loss. The Republican effort was 6000 times larger than the Russian effort. 60 minutes interviewed the Republican internet guru who claimed full credit and explained exactly what he did.
