Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, May 17, 2018

Political consulting group Cambridge Analytica used Russian researchers and shared data with companies linked to Russian intelligence, a whistleblower told a congressional hearing on interference in the 2016 US election Wednesday. Christopher Wylie, who leaked information on the British-based firm's hijacking of data on millions of Facebook users, told a Senate panel he believes Russian intelligence services had access to data harvested by the consultancy. Wylie told the panel that Russian-American researcher Aleksandr Kogan, who created an application to harvest Facebook user profile data, was working at the same time on Russian-funded projects, including "behavioral research."

All roads lead to Moscow but we're supposed to believe Trump has been on is way to DC the whole time.

I care.

Trump is a compromised POTUS who is being blackmailed because of being in debt to Russian Billionaires.

Trump is a traitor.

"I was linking to another thread about a different kind of voter suppression in WI."

To emphasize just how systematic GOP voter suppression is. And to highlight the shortsightedness of Ben_Berkkake's sarcastic comment.

Undeniable.

It is amazing that the GOP is so much about voter suppression. I have read how the duplication of the data was working to Russia as well. Someone should go down for treason in this and I think there should be more than 1.

This would be collusion, folks. That's the ball game.

Gee.. it's as if Giulliani's law firm were warning Putin through Cambridge Analytica.

"Whistleblower: Analytica Shared Facebook Data with Russia"

So how is this different than what Obama did back in 2012?!?

If the media were actually doing their jobs, they would be asking all Republicans if they received Cambridge Analytica data during their 2016 election campaigns.

I mean, c'mon, do I have to think of everything?

This is why I strongly dislike the media -- they're lame and would rather curry favor and access instead of vigorously challenging the BS that is vomited by our elected leaders ... www.drudge.com

Mueller issued subpoenas to a number of Russian troll farms. Because they are in Russia there were supposed to ignore it and stay in Russia because American Law does not apply within Russia.

Problem is... one actually flew to Washington DC and has hired a legal team and is now demanding to see Mueller's evidence or face a multi-million defamation lawsuit.

Problem is Mueller has no actual evidence to show or if he has, it's classified and can't show it. Either way, he's toast.

I think they listed about 20 Russian companies and you know damn well all of them are now buying plane tickets to DC and are about to add 20 more additional defamation lawsuits.

The potential is HUGH! Billions of tax money up for grabs. Christopher Wylie will be served tomorrow. Tonight tons of lawyers rushing to the airport to met these exces. Wowwee never seen a feeding frenzy like this.

It means this "Investi-cation" will be going on for a few more years but NOT in the way the Democratic Party Elite was expecting.

Oh well 1 year and 12 Million dollars down the drain.... soon to followed by a few Billion more - what the hell it's only taxpayer money,,, IRS can get more.
