  1. It sounds as if our very own president and the Republicans have the same objectives as the Russians and the Iranians! Undermine our elections

  2. The Russians and the Iranians are using Trump’s playbook.

    • @Buck C Republican led Senate Intelligence Report said the Trump Campaign worked with Konstantin Kilimnik (Russian Intelligence) and Oleg Deripaska (Putin’s friend) during the 2016 election. https://www.intelligence.senate.gov/sites/default/files/documents/report_volume5.pdf

      Go convince your own.

    • @Buck C –Trump said he knew Putin & could make great deals with him on the 2016 debate dais, then “jokingly” invoked him to send Hillary’s emails Russia hacked (& we “know” that because it was hammered into our heads for 2&1/2 years of congressional grilling of Hillary over them). He had the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak on the RNC stage during his campaign and in the Oval Office in Jan. 2017 after his inauguration & is said to have recklessly shared sensitive classified information with them–those are facts leading to those allegations. Trump’s a flashy carny-barker showman who exercises no discretion who LOVES setting tongues wagging…maybe you should lay some of the blowback from whence it came, think?

      The russian, doubtly…but still probable. The iranian? No way. They already got their hand full just because covid!.

    • @Nurlinda F Sihotang -Trumpers are grasping at straws with all of their crap…Giuliani’s a crazed old perv & rebugs’ll run with anything if it bamboozles Covidiots enough to keep Trump in & draw attention away from his lunacy; it’s like throwing crayons & coloring books to kids to keep ’em busy with something😄😆

      As a U.K. resident I have never been more worried in my 67 years on the planet as to where the USA have been heading for the past 4 years and can not get my head around how so many appear to have been manipulated and STILL seem to want to follow a dictator leaving democracy behind.

      @Peter Cary specialist ADI im in UK too scotland to be exact and I am worried too i have seen increasing numbers in UK starting to support trump thank god he’s not our leader but its worrying still how many like him just because he doesn’t wear a mask and doesn’t support any type of covid response at all hes the biggest con man I’ve seen

    • G

  4. And we didn’t see this coming??? 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙

  5. I smell a Rat.

  6. I’ll bet that Russia made Iran look guilty.

  7. Trump’s Cronies are Shielding Russia and putting the blame on Iran, that tells you something

    • Cynthia Pikoulas | October 22, 2020 at 6:51 AM | Reply

      Remember the Intelligence Reports that intercepts were between a know Russian Agent and Rudy..Russia is behind all of this. TRUMP may be using this current Breaking News about Iran, as a potential EXCUSE to go after them in the end…(just a thought, possibly to interrupt his leaving office)

    America your democracy is in jeopardy. Don’t let trumps hacks destroy your country.

    Ratcliffe is just a trump mouthpiece

  13. Actually John Redcliffe deliberately mentioned “Trump” without mentioning Biden at all, in order to give the impression that Trump is the victim of the interference. But we know as the fact that Trump is always welcoming foreign interferences, like when he said “RUSSIA, IF YOU LISTEN…” and “CHINA, INVESTIGATE BIDEN…”
    We now see, from the mouth of his bootpolisher, that the one that is trying to undermine the election is TRUMP.

      Harumi, Good of you that you are able to put two and two together. It’s a ploy to give impression to Americans having realised that with all what they have done to voters suppression, people are still voting in droves for not only Joe Biden, but also Democratic candidates. They wanted to paint him as victim. One tragedy that will eventually come out of this, is that if you Americans allows this to sway your votes towards him, by the time he commence his second term in office, the damage would have become irreparable even if the entire houses are filled with Democratic party.

    • @Michael Raheem you are correct. I never watched The Apprentice and had no idea the severity of the problem of electing Trump to a real office, not just a reality show “star.” While l didn’t vote for Trump, l awoke from what l can only call apathy when he fired Sally Yates. Since then, l gave watched this amoral, unpatriotic fool with power nearly destroy our democratic republic. I have been candid about the prospects of another 4 years of Trump being the destruction of the United States of America. For our survival, we must rid ourselves of this monster and ALL of his enablers who have overtaken the Senate and the entire judicial system. Vote BLUE because your life and the life of the United States continuing depends upon it. It will be rough going because Trump has divided the country, but we must succeed if we are to continue as a free country.

  14. We don’t need help to undermine the election. We already have enough coming straight out of the White House.

  15. “The depths of his dishonesty is just astounding to me. The dishonesty, the transactional nature of every relationship, though it’s more pathetic than anything else. President Donald Trump is the most flawed person I have ever met in my life.”
    — General John Kelly, Trump’s fmr. Chief of Staff, October 16, 2020

    a person who betrays a friend, country, principle, etc.

  17. Ratcliffe tarnishes, embarrasses Intelligence Community

  18. Anyone paying attention knows that the administration is lying period.

    “Damaging” Trump seems a bit redundant, like throwing a brick at a broken window.

    Trump is so desperate to get reelected. He’s pathetic. His desperation is sickening.
