      Dave S : I so didn’t want to believe this story. The implications, even if it turned out to be a misinterpretation of intel (now we know it’s not) mean that Donny was told Russia was paying to ASSASSINATE our Troops and did NOTHING to find out if that was true, or to stop it, if it was. If that isn’t Collaboration, what is? Trump is tearing America apart, because Putin controls him, and Putin HATES America

    • Nice

      @Ash Roskell If you believe this story than you would believe anything…. The Intel is unverified, and did not reach the presidents ears. Its just another democrat scheme to make the president look bad for the 2020 election. This story will fall apart just like the other failed democrat schemes.

    • Ash Roskell | July 1, 2020 at 5:04 AM | Reply

      Kenny Tendo : What is, “verified,” is that the intel was given to trump, over a year ago, and he never even TRIED to find out if it was true or not. What we can say for CERTAIN at this point, is that it makes no difference whether they claimed actual scalps or not. Trump was SUPPOSED to WARN our Troops. A f’king PHONE CALL, son. And, what is beyond all question, is that you Trumpophiles are NOT squirming out of this one, son. This will cost trump his job, if nothing else does. It ought to cost him his life. But, you wouldn’t comprehend why

    Taxes will show him to be operating for Russia

    • Ash Roskell | July 1, 2020 at 2:09 AM | Reply

      Brutal Noodle : You should think that through? The Russians have spoliated ALL potential evidence by now. But, others don’t. And there will be those in the Deutsche Bank, the Bank of Cyprus, et al, who were, “supposed,” to spoliate, but who didn’t, because they needed something to trade when the law came knocking. Trump’s taxes aren’t going to say, “here’s where I committed my crimes.” It’s a jigsaw, that experts are well versed in putting back together. In this day and age, especially; EVERYONE leaves their finger prints. I promise you

    • Ash Roskell | July 1, 2020 at 2:13 AM | Reply

      goodfella21f : All we really need for that, is a Biden administration. Once there’s no one left in a position to obstruct justice . . . Then we’ll finally own them. But, that’s why they’ll cheat. They aren’t just waiting to go to jail. Be prepared to fight for your Republic. Join a Pro-Democracy Action Group, if you haven’t already. They will fight

    • Brutal Noodle | July 1, 2020 at 2:21 AM | Reply

      ​@Ash Roskell Uh… when you say “spoliated all potential evidence”…. how is that different from me saying they can “bury a paper trail”…. are we going to pretend we don’t understand each other? or do you really not understand?

      as for your “confession”? ROFL!!!! are you a 12 year old goth princess daring me to challenge your murderous tendencies? Do it b*tch! xD

      AG Barr is tearing the deep state up by its roots and exposing the delusions of moral superiority that have infected so many in the intelligence and federal law enforcement communities. It is effective and working nicely so of course the scoundrel dems want to impeach him. He will absolutely not be removed because it’s just pageantry by 80 year old face lift Pelosi

    • Joal Hoekstra | July 1, 2020 at 10:07 AM | Reply

      I can confirm that without his taxes

  3. Deeply saddening. When is enough going to be enough?

    • Irving Martin | July 1, 2020 at 2:37 PM | Reply

      I’m wondering the same. When will people see that this liberal media is ruining this country

    • @Irving Martin I’m not sure if you’re being deliberately facetious or you’ve mistaken me as someone who is like-minded. Just to be explicitly clear, we are wondering two very different things.

    Never been a fan of Trump. But I used to consider the claims of him being a Russian asset as nothing more than partisan hyperbole.
    Now it is becoming shockingly clear that it is all too true.
    Trump is in fact carrying out a Russian agenda against America WHILE serving as the American president!
    And what’s even more shocking is that 30% of so-called Americans still support him.

    • @Gerard Smadja So you mean helping russia, as what trump usually do?

    • Gerard Smadja | July 1, 2020 at 1:06 PM | Reply

      @SinBae I mean what I wrote, namely that US Intel agencies famously lie all the time (WMD, Tonkin Gulf, Fake gas attack in Duma, Russia collusion, Flynn discussing sanctions (he did not!), and only a brainwashed reader can believe what they say whithout detailed checking.

    • Kenny Tendo | July 1, 2020 at 4:21 PM | Reply

      @SinBae So i should be banned just because i have a different opinion than you? anyone with an opposing opinion should be silenced? sound familiar? oh that’s right Hitler and Stalin did that. you are the party of soviet union. WAKE UP!

      This is the kind of repulsive character that the USA produces:
      On 29 August 2012, McEnany tweeted: “How I Met Your Brother — Never mind, forgot he’s still in that hut in Kenya. #ObamaTVShows”. (The Guardian, April 2020)
      Along with the spurious dig at Obama, who was born in Hawaii, the tweet also traded on stereotypes of Africans living in huts.
      Highlighting the tweet on Tuesday, Richard Painter, a former White House chief ethics lawyer, wrote: “What is this? A KKK rally in the White House?”
      McEnany is a disgusting racist. The little cross she wears around her neck is pure American hypocrisy.
      Meanwhile, the bodies keep piling up in the greatest shithole country on the planet.

    • Bs @blue arrow. Few people dead thx to Russian bounties and you all want FULLY BLOWN WAR over it ! Trump is not a traitor he is just stupid and too self absorbed

  5. Betcha Trump must be busy looking for the whistle blower who provided the intel to NYT.

      Good post Boris. You must get extra vodka from Putin by helping and abetting the killing of Americans.

  6. No, no, no. See, Puton said he didn’t do it. That’s all the proof we need.

    • TrixiLovesYou | July 1, 2020 at 7:36 AM | Reply

      I agree. Trump and Putin are elected officials and were sworn in on the job. They wouldn’t do anything to harm anyone. You can trust them with your lives. All is well. Please continue.

    • @TrixiLovesYou don’T forget the /s

      @Ralph Boyd This is precisely the ‘exceptional’ nature of US interventions. Whoever does not do what they wish is evil.

      Fake outrage over false intel leaked by treasonous democrats to propagandist rags! Unscrupulous! Shame on all of you who propagate it and feign credence- it’s simply un American and anti America!!! You are not Americans but you are bad people

    • Nancy M Ross | July 1, 2020 at 1:29 PM | Reply

      @15k DOW 2022 The only treason here is being committed here is by the president of my country. And fools like you. Why would you pick Russia over your countrymen? When the Constitution said separation of powers, it did not mean separate your fellow Americans of a different party. Get a grip on reality. And PATRIOTISM.

  10. If we give Trump the benefit of the doubt, he’s known since last week… and still said and done nothing.

    • Jim Battersbee | July 1, 2020 at 3:58 AM | Reply

      The problem is that the American people are fed a constant diet of lies.
      By both parties.
      By your CIA.
      By your Pentagon.
      By your elected representatives.
      By your media.
      The USA is a circus, a joke. The world laughs at you not out of spite, but from sympathy and a sense of disbelief that any first world country could be so pathetic, so corrupt, so utterly incompetent.

    • @Jim Battersbee agree Jim, only thing i’d like to nuance is the US being a first world country. sure, in terms of economy or military it is. no doubt about it. but in so many other aspects I would dare to say it is lagging … and slipping further and further down the list.

    • Jim Battersbee | July 1, 2020 at 4:29 PM | Reply

      @D L
      Agreed. The USA is like the cave dweller who just invented the spear. They have great technology, but still live in a primitive society.
      They’re not alone in this, but what makes them unique is their hypocrisy, they make claims to a, “greatness and exceptionalism” that is purely illusory, a product of their imagination and indoctrination.
      The current unrest didn’t come out of a clear sky, the country has been racist and unjust since its founding.
      They lack basic health provisions like clean drinking water and a decent health system for all and it shows in their life expectancy ranking, only 46th in the world. People in Japan for example, out-live Americans by over 6 years on average.
      And the bodies keep piling up.

    That’s good enough for me. I’d take the intel community’s word over the Orange Orifice. They’re looking for excuses to burry the truth, and not tell the Dems, what they’re entitled to know. Just more evidence of Trump’s Collaborations. Our own Troops, America! OUR TROOPS!

    US, 2002/2003: There is little to no doubt that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction. It is a slam dunk case.

  13. Everything Trump does is helping Russia.

  14. Send that 30% to Putin that’s still supporting

  15. T – Trump
    R – Repeatedly
    U – Under
    M – Master
    P – Putin

    If Trump is a very good boy, maybe Putin will grant him asylum. He’s gonna need it.

  19. Never once has Trump said anything against Putin. Plenty against Merkel, though. Scorn for our NATO allies and praise for Putin, that’s all he has.

    Where’s the accountability of this treasonous administration? Without criminal charges, our Democracy is a failure.
