How a dubious Russian document influenced the FBIs handling of the Clinton probe

Source: Washington Post

A secret document that officials say played a key role in then-FBI Director James B. Comeys handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation has long been viewed within the FBI as unreliable and possibly a fake, according to people familiar with its contents.

In the midst of the 2016 presidential primary season, the FBI received what was described as a Russian intelligence document claiming a tacit understanding between the Clinton campaign and the Justice Department over the inquiry into whether she intentionally revealed classified information through her use of a private email server.

The Russian document cited a supposed email describing how then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch had privately assured someone in the Clinton campaign that the email investigation would not push too deeply into the matter. If true, the revelation of such an understanding would have undermined the integrity of the FBIs investigation.

Election is not valid, at all.

I dont care if there is no mechanism for that, we need to make one.

Tom Taylor, a robotics engineer, running in Utah's 4th Congressional District


Sounds like someone you great folks of Utah could support!


November 8, 2016 is a date that will be forever burned in my memory. It is the date when the country I love elected an authoritarian with very little understanding of how our government works to the nation’s highest office. The election of Donald Trump, a lazy, narcissistic owner of a corrupt real estate empire, to the Presidency of the United States will be a stain on our nation’s history and all of the sitting members of Congress that are enabling his petulant behavior are dangerously eroding norms that will affect our democracy for decades. As I sat down to my office desk the day after the election, I knew I had to do something. My family’s future and my country’s future depended on it.

Can I talk about how if we do in 2018 what we did in 2016

i.e. demand "fresh faces", demand "outsiders", demand "no clintons, no kennedys", demand "pure candidates", that we will not gain back control of jack shit?

To explain what we CANT do in 2018 I would have to refer to 2016.

If somebody doesnt do this, we are gonna lose again. Maybe I am the wrong messenger. I dont care WHO does it.

Enjoy Democratic Underground while you still can.

As was reported elsewhere here net neutrality is now officially on it's way out.

Fox news will come to you very fast and MSNBC or Democratic Underground will CRAWL to you, at best.

At least that is what is possible, it is what they CAN do if they want.

Trump and Hillary are the same, eh.

If 40% of America are against impeachment, still support Trump, what do you think that means for the

Democratic Party in 2018 if purity movements get hold?

Like I have said in the past, there needs to be a nationwide training seminar for people to learn how the TWO PARTY system works.

For instance, let's say you have a candidate who is a democrat running for the house who is anti choice and anti gay rights.

His or her opponent in the GOP are also, of course. People need to understand why they still have to vote for him or her, and I dont think they do.

Or why primarying someone who CANT win in the general, takes away a SEAT from the party which gives control to the other party and in our 2 party system the party with the control gets EVERYTHING done their way.

I sometimes feel like a lone voice about this. So I am asking for your help.

Please get involved and tell people about this. Tell them why not voting or ever voting 3rd party is suicide.

BTW,. if Manchin in WV is primaried by someone too liberal to win in the general, GOP gets another Senate seat, secures power that can destroy America.

Here is the problem if Trump were to resign.

He would get sympathy, he would be pardoned, he would never face justice for being a major international money laundering criminal.

Pence would then get busy destroying America. For the benefit of the usual bunch and nobody else.

Pence would get much more support for the same terrible things he would do than Trump got, like taking healthcare from many million currently insured citizens.

Ryan and he would go on a spree of destruction and take our Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and more.

Voting rights would be all but gone as would gay rights, women's rights.

No, I say let him be impeached and then indicted. Let it be clear Pence lied, was part of the whole thing as was McConnell and Chaffetz and others.

Please stop watching MSNBC if they replace RATINGS HIT O'Donnell with Trump friendly Williams

This is the rumor, that to have access to the dictator they have to fire O'Donnell.

I ask everyone to stop watching EVERYTHING on that network if this happens.

Sorry Joy and Rachel, but I am sure you get it.
