Brennan’s notes, which were taken after he briefed Obama on the intelligence, cite “a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service,” which was “alleged approved by Hillary Clinton.”

The heavily-redacted CIA memo references “an exchange discussing U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.”

In 2016, the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee contracted Fusion GPS and former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to compile the controversial Russian dossier, which purported to draw a connection between the Trump campaign and Russia and contained salacious allegations about Trump, then the Republican nominee.
.

Well Obama and Team did not heed this conclusion and instead put on a full court press to push Hillary's Campaign plan....

Is this what a political campaign/pary should be allowed to do? Is it fair game and fair to the populous in general?

I say no and until certain others say the same...game on...to the detriment to the Republic. You see all you have to do is create a supervillain 24/7 long enough and shallow people refuse to see.

Rehashing old news, I see. So what happened to not picking at the wound? Does that only apply to one side and not the other?

A quick internet search shows this was heavily covered in the right wing press around Oct 6 of last year, then the story pretty much disappeared. Is there something new, or is this yet another attempt to distract from the very real threat to democracy itself posed by Trump and his minions?

“allegedly approved by Hillary Clinton.”


A. Hillary was not holding any office to approve anything.
B. Hillary campaign never paid any money for the Christopher Steele dossier

Hillary lost Michigan by less than 11,000 votes. Trump lost Michigan by 154,188 votes
Hillary spent the whole year after the election going around the country and having rallies to allege that the election was a fraud, and threatening members of her party that didn't promote the election fraud to their constituency with a primary invasion.
Oh... wait... that's what Trump is doing...

Hillary conceded the next day.

Distinctions without a difference.

Just where did that 12 million $$ come from that was funneled to Steele? Why so under the table?
Being in office is by not a requirement for what she and hers' did. It was a means for her to get into office. Why were her campaign attorneys going to the FBI planting stories about the now debunked (by the FBI nonetheless) Alfa Bank stuff? The DNC law firm was involved, yes?? Bruce Orr (#4 at the DOJ) wife was president of GPS Simpson a go between group.

Collusion with a foreigner in a foreign government to influence an election in the USA and/or influence the elected official and their ability to govern is frowned on by some here. But it depends on just who does it, right?

This is such a target rich zone of criminal behavior all tied to herself and her campaign,

Peace,

The dossier was originally funded by the RNC

You might want to mention that the Eric Trump and Jared Kushner.

Nice dodge of a direct question. Up some courage.

Where did the 12 million $ come from. Come on, you can do it! Be worthy.

Well I am in a helpful mood. Some information for you to know and repeat from a lovely and favorite source of you and yours.




https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/27/us/politics/trump-dossier...

Now you can know what was started, by whom and why it was dropped.

Now the real question is who picked it back up and gave 12 million $ for news that they could use? Who ran the feeder information to give it some gusto and provide cover for the higher ups in the FBI/DOJ etc. to be good soldiers?

Wait for it......

The oppo research that Steele was working on was originally funded by Republicans and Fusion GPS against Trump. Then he became the front runner, and a firm connected to Hillary's campaign got interested.

Are we forgetting the dossier was initially funded by Republicans?

It is convenient for Republicans to do so, yes.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Context seems to make things clear.

It was initially funded by a conservative organization. But in a black and white world that gets translated into something not accurate or true. Some here have used RNC and Republicans.

Trump was an unknown in politics. Since his candidacy became more serious, people start to look at him more seriously, before they look at him as a candidate and getting their support...thus the investigation. Nothing much found so it was dropped. Nothing at all nefarious about this.

Now along comes the DNC and pays under the table for information that costs way, way beyond what was originally charged. This was their assurance to find news they can use. That is coupled with campaign lawyers providing misleading/untrue information to the FBI(Alfa Bank fiasco) to get their attention. The prime sub source was represented as a deep in the know Russian government official, but was really just a hack from the Brookings Institute. Lots of collusion here folks.

Brennan had it right when he slipped Obama a note at their meeting of the minds weeks prior to his term expiring. It was a scam by Hillary folks to distract from her email problem. That cabal choose to support Hillary in her quest for "her turn" instead. The rest was money,time and effort down the drain as all Democrats marched in lock step.

Yes sir, that was the beginning. Creating a supervillain so by comparison Hillary could get relative goodness/success. She could not earn it herself, so this became the strategy to sell to the bubble headed minions.

Nice Gish Gallop there.

the strategy to sell to the bubble headed minions

Those aren't who you think they are. Or maybe you know a bunch of Hillary supporters who do things like visit Dealey Plaza waiting for zombie JFK Jr. or demand anti-parasitics from ICU docs.

Based on my vast experience they can be found anywhere. Like Donna Brazile from CNN who found a need to slip Hillary a debate question? Then get rewarded by becoming head of the DNC just before the convention. A position vacated in a hurry by Wasserman-Schultz who had to leave due to exposed deeds. This was the rotten heart of the Democratic Party at the time. Stink much?

But if "folks" are feed the trash 24/7 by the media and political operatives "doing their duty", it turns those folks, incapable or unwilling to think for themselves, into fools for fodder.

The question is were U-1?? Then how to atone?

As Joe Friday said, "just the facts ma'am, just the facts".

OK. So political hacks are equivalent to people who believe "adrenochrome"-harvesting satanic baby-killer lizard people will be defeated by a dead JFK Jr. and Trump, vaccines have 5G chips in them and make them magnetic, and CRT is taught to kindergarteners.

Thanks for pointing out the mote. Have a go at your beam.
