Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, October 11, 2018

The Trump campaign argued in a legal filing that WikiLeaks could not be held liable for publishing emails that were stolen by Russian hackers ahead of the 2016 US election because the website was simply serving as a passive publishing platform on behalf of a third party, in the same way as Google or Facebook.

Wikileaks has already been designated an extension of a foreign adversary by the DOJ.

There is nothing passive about them.

Possessing stolen property is a crime. Using stolen Digital property to cause someone malicious harm by releasing personal data is a crime.

Trump is a criminal. Criminals protect other criminals.

I wish Jon stewart still had a show so he could contrast how Republicans felt about wikileaks when Bush was in office and how they felt when wikileaks helped Trump.

You condone illegal violations of privacy?

I guess Russians don't really believe in privacy but here in America we believe in the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things ...

"The Nation is the oldest continuously published weekly magazine in the United States, and the most widely read weekly journal of progressive National Socialist political and cultural news,"

Obscene insult to The Nation. Heinrich is a total a*****e. Idiot. Fool. Liar. Troll. But mostly just too dumb to even understand the things he posts about. Just dumb. I personally know people as dumb as him but they don't pretend they aren't dumb.

This is about the emails from the campaign.

Give me access to your email accounts. Especially those email accounts you don't want anyone to know about. And I want your past 4 years of browsing history.

I want to post it online. After all, exposing things is good, right?

Are you talking about the ones she destroyed, the ones on Wieners laptop, or the ones that got phished from Podesta through the 'reset Google pw' link, which Clinton's IT staff assured Podesta was legit?

All we know is that Team Cankles wasn't hacked and had zero cyber security. I'll bet all her emails could also be found on Harvey Weinsteins iPad and Oprah's pink notebook plus.

You can probably look at the entire batch by logging into your Xbox One or Playstation 4 and typing, "candidate concussion".
