The Trump-Russia dossier: why its findings grow more significant by the day
Everything that was dismissed as liberal conspiracy theories last year is being independently verified.
Goodbye Spin, Hello Raw Dishonesty
At this point it’s easier to list the Trump officials who haven’t been caught lying under oath than those who have.
The “anything goes” media mentality when it comes to Russia strikes again.

I was suspicious of the WaPo article due to lack of named sources and lack of specifics beyond a local power company in VT.
Secret CIA assessment says Russia was trying to help Trump win White House
These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest Electoral College victories in history.“
Both of these statements are false.
The CIA didn’t say Saddam had WMD. That was the Bush 43 White house.
And his EC victory was the weakest since Bush 43 in 2000. It wasn’t a landslide.

Enough here to investigate, not enough to claim that Russia hacked the election.
Americans keep looking away from the election’s most alarming story
U.S. intelligence agencies determined that the Russian government actively interfered in our elections. Russian state propaganda gave little doubt that this was done to support Republican nominee Trump, who repeatedly praised Vladimir Putin and excused the Russian president’s foreign aggression and domestic repression. Most significantly, U.S. intelligence agencies have affirmed that the Russian government directed the illegal hacking of private email accounts of the Democratic National Committee and prominent individuals. The emails were then released by WikiLeaks, which has benefited financially from a Russian state propaganda arm, used Russian operatives for security and made clear an intent to harm the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.
This is so much worse than any of the Clinton email or Clinton Foundation stories. It should be investigated.
