I think Russia's goals were far bigger than this. They wanted to sow distrust in our very institutions and undermine American democracy. They seem to be succeeding.


This was my concern back in May and I'd say eight months later they must be looking at the US and enjoying what their efforts have brought.


General Alexander (cybercom) said the same thing in congressional testimony a year or so ago. A puppet is of temporary value, destroying faith in the system is the real win.

I'll bet he thought he was clever for the "red handed" bit too.

Holy fucking shit

“I have absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department,” he said, echoing claims by his supporters that as president he has the power to open or end an investigation. “But for purposes of hopefully thinking I’m going to be treated fairly, I’ve stayed uninvolved with this particular matter.”


Quote:
“I don’t want to get into loyalty, but I will tell you that, I will say this: Holder protected President Obama. Totally protected him,” Mr. Trump said. He added: “When you look at the things that they did, and Holder protected the president. And I have great respect for that, I’ll be honest.”

I appreciated how the link to this article was on the same page
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... ng-fathers

Quote:
Convention dictated that he had to divest himself of private business concerns on taking office, to prevent a conflict of interest – but in the absence of a law explicitly forcing him to do so, he did no such thing. The same goes for appointing unqualified relatives to senior jobs, sacking the director of the FBI with no legitimate cause, or endorsing an accused child molester for the US Senate. No law told him he couldn’t, so he did.

This is an interesting article that explains impeachment options against Trump pretty well:

http://www.nybooks.com/articles/2017/09/28/donald-trump-impeachable-offenses/

The author oversells it a bit, being a money-grubbing, un-presidential, bigoted asshole in not grounds for impeachment, nor is the argument about subverting the judiciary via twitter worth anything, but there is still a lot of good stuff there.

The Times had a piece on Papadopulous' (or whatever) playing above his grade and Russia's apparent attempts to suborn him spawning the original FBI inquiry, not the pee pee tape as Donny has suggested. Once again, it's case closed on Trump!

I'm kind of tired of Twitter threads. Can't you just publish a fucking article on a blog somewhere instead? Save me from trying to navigate the comments until the end, at least.
