    things just go juicy after reading butina's affidavit. oh no!

    https://apps.npr.org/documents/docum...avit-July-2018

    Russian agent Maria Butina emailed GOP operative/NRA Life Member Paul Erickson (AKA “U.S. Person 1”) on March 24, 2015 under the subject line “The Second Pozner.” She included a project proposal titled “Diplomacy.” The proposal stated the GOP “would likely obtain control over the U.S. government after the 2016 elections,” but worried the party “was traditionally associated with negative and aggressive foreign policy, particularly with regards to Russia.” “However, now with the right to negotiate seems best to build [constructive] relations,” Butina continued. The NRA has significant influence inside the GOP as “the largest sponsor of the elections to the U.S. Congress, as well as a sponsor to the CPAC conference and other events,” she noted. Butina bragged about the relationships she and Russian central banker Alexander Torshin enjoyed with NRA leaders. She also indicated she had met with GOP leaders in the United States on behalf of Russia. She asked Erickson for a budget of $125,00 to participate in “all upcoming major conferences” of the GOP. She concluded the proposal by stating, “the resulting status needs to be strengthened is in the current time interval, before the presidential election in 2016.”

    Dear Maria,

    Your challenge in your “special project” will be to balance two opposing imperatives: Your desire to communicate that you speak for Russian interests that will be ascendant (still around) in a post-Putin world while simultaneously doing nothing to criticize the President or speed the arrival of his successor.

    This restriction is easily understood in private meetings with political and business leaders. It will SEVERELY limit your interactions with media. Most of the potential “guest appearances” will only be possible if you’re willing to be candid (honest) than is politically prudent for you. But ALL of the media personalities listed would be interested in meeting you “off-the-record” — though your patrons and sponsors may not fully understand the power of such meetings if you do not appear on television, radio, or print as you do in Russia.

    ###

    There is NO limit as to how many American companies that you can meet — at the highest levels — if you are able to represent that you are a potential line of communication into future Russian Federation governments.

    Re: What about the Russians?

    Isn't it funny how when Bush was President BB was constantly warning us here that it was foolish to rely on intel to start a war in Iraq. Now though according to him questioning the intel they have on Russia is just gosh darn downright unpatriotic. Your sig BB is a good reminder of just how reliable our "intelligence" can be and how it's not smart to go to war over it. All these Dems now putting 100% faith in something they had no faith in not long ago makes me laugh.
    The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

    With the radical left socialists there’s a new crisis every day. They do there very best to help Putin/Russians. They’ve been known to help radical Islam and North Korea. Not to worry this crisis is already on the way out. Next crisis Trump Cheese Burgers Fries and a Chocolate Shake... ... Big Macs are suspects in Russian Collusion...

    I think you missed my point BB. My point was you were right to question the intel then, yet now you take it as gospel.

    Re: What about the Russians?

    get on board. there has been a massive amount of evidence that they did, trump has now changed his tune, for now anyway. i've been prove right again.

    Trump now says he holds Putin responsible for election interference

    President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he holds his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin personally responsible for Moscow's attempts to interfere in the 2016 US election.

    "I would because he's in charge of the country just like I consider myself to be responsible for things that happen in this country," Trump said. "So certainly as the leader of the country you would have to hold him responsible."
    Trump's views surrounding election meddling have been repeatedly called into question. As recently as this week -- immediately after his one-on-one meeting with Putin -- Trump appeared to believe Putin's denial over the US intelligence community's conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

    Sure. I wouldn’t not understand or care what you meant and certainly don’t not care what you don’t not do or don’t not think.

    Could go with "Last Word" on this one, it was a tough call - but, it's really more of a dismount from the first moronic post... ROFL!
