LOL

Well that was expected. Any story that puts the Dems in a bad light...”It MUST be the Russians!”

so pathetic. And I imagine the drones will eat it up. Did the Russians plant a used laptop at a computer store too, which, by the way, was subpoenaed by FBI agent Joshua Wilson, who is also the top guy who investigates pedophiles? A pic of the subpoena is on the net so there’s no conspiracy theory or fake news in this one.

Maybe. Or maybe it was another party. Could have even been a never Trumper. Or a Democrat.

Of course, ethical people would certify that it's real before putting it out there, but well, Giuliani - even the guys' own daughter is publicly stating he's a piece of crap.

And Giuliani is smack dab in the middle of it all. Disgraceful.

Giuliani who regularly meets with the Russians to further Trump's interests. Hmm...

When some 'Americans' wear Tshirts saying 'I'd rather be Russian than Democrat' It's not surprising to read posts from 'American' Trump supporters once again defending Russia while disbelieving US sources. These are the same people who've served as Useful 'Is for the various Kremlin troll armies, parroting their 'if Hillary doesn't do what Russia wants she'll start WW3' among other slogans.

The US alt right want the US under Trump to copy a Russian style form of national socialism, one where white nationalists prevail.

Could have been Russians. Could have been Chinese. Could have been anyone. Given the lack of credibility of the story, it’s hard to say.

*Several experts on foreign disinformation quickly warned that there were major red flags about the articles published by the New York Post, *including Giuliani's involvement, the changing stories about how the emails were obtained, and the digital metadata of images posted by the newspaper.

. . .

The first paragraph of one of the New York Post stories contains blatant disinformation that was debunked last year. It says the alleged meeting in 2015 was problematic because Joe Biden "pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating" Burisma. Trump championed this false narrative during his impeachment.

*In reality, the Burisma investigation was dormant when Biden urged Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin.** Biden's actions were in support of US and European policy, who wanted Shokin ousted because he was corrupt. Firing him would have increased -- not decreased -- investigative scrutiny of Burisma*.

Because no story from fine multi-pulitzer winning (current country zero) news establishment such as the NY Post (most common articles include Kanye, Real Housewives, Kardashian/ Jenner drama) could ever be duped by the Russians, right?

Notice that this topic was totally avoided/ignored here until “Russia” could be added as a possibility days later to try to cover it up.

The FBI is investigating whether emails that were published by the New York Post related to Joe Biden's son, Hunter, are connected to a possible Russian influence operation to spread disinformation, according to a person familiar with the matter.

BINGO! This has to be the most inept, transparent, obvious hoax ever - but what more would you expect from Crazy Rudy and Dumpster Steve; one currently under investigation for illegally representing a foreign entity and the other arrested for fraud and awaiting trial. Talk about a couple losers...

They were either too stupid to realize they were being duped by Russian intel or they were colluding with them...

I think it was probably both...

A person on the emails has already confirmed their authenticity. thats all that matters.

*President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani insisted that he had absolutely no idea that one of his key sources in his smear campaign against Joe Biden was a Russian spy interfering in the U.S. presidential election. Giuliani failed to explain on MSNBC how he allegedly missed all signs that Ukrainian lawmaker and conspiracy-pusher Andrii Derkach was a Russian operative.  “You’re a former prosecutor from the Southern District of New York, a former mayor of New York City, you have a national security firm,” host Jonathan Capehart said. “How could you not know that this person you were talking to was a known Russian agent?“ *

*The Treasury Department revealed Thursday that *Derkach was an “active Russian agent for over a decade, maintaining close connections with the Russian Intelligence Services.”

Crazy Rudy - either duped or colluding with a Russian agent...

"Colluding with Russia" will be the epitaph on the gravestone of the Trump campaign...

”a person with knowledge of the situation” doesn’t work anymore like it did for all your stories?

He has a name. It’s online.

Big Guy didn’t deny it nor blame Russia disinformation, he attacked the reporter.

“I asked Joe Biden: What is your response to the NYPost story about your son, sir?

He called it a “smear campaign” and then went after me. “I know you’d ask it. I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.”

> ”a person with knowledge of the situation” doesn’t work anymore like it did for all your stories? 

None of my stories. I’m not a writer and I don’t cite stories with anonymous sources because I know how sensitive to real journalism conservatives are.

He has a name. It’s online.

Lots if names are online. Some posters here even think the rest of us should be able to infer their ethnicity by their screen name. Isn’t that hilarious?

Why so coy? I would have thought that if it were a name that everyone would find credible you would be eager to share it.

The newspaper, citing four former officials, said that assessment was based on information including intercepted communications showing Giuliani had been in contact with people tied to Russian intelligence.

Stay classy, Rudy.

Coming from Rudy Gulliani via the Trump-supporting NY Post and given the allegations of Russian support for the Trump campaign you can see why people might think that. Can't you?

Did the Russians plant a used laptop at a computer store too

Who do you think the genius was that left it there?

It didn’t matter for the last 3.5 years who the source was or how it was obtained.

matters now?

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

Black, you've been duped by the Benghazi investigations, both IG investigations, all GOP Senate and House investigations, the recent Barr investigations, the FBI email investigations, the demasking investigation.

Do you like being a human pinata for moderates and liberals to knock around?

Incorrect.

good luck trying to ignore this one. Emails and photos are public and actual people have confirmed the contents.

People you can’t name. Photos and emails that can be doctored.

Black:. nome of that relates to this one.

Or shows a pattern of you being duped. How is your Seth Rich conspiracy coming along?

the previous flip of a coin has no impact on the next one.

Is that how you explain away the dozens of times you've been wrong with your conspiracy theories?

When some 'Americans' wear Tshirts saying 'I'd rather be Russian than Democrat' It's not surprising to read posts from 'American' Trump supporters once again defending Russia while disbelieving US sources.

But Russia is not the problem, even the FBI admits that as well as senior levels as well as Brennen were caught red handed lying using salacious and unverified dossier to go after Trump, stop with the debunked narrative, now if you want to have a discussion about the real collusion between the Hillary camp, Comey and Christopher Steele, a real foreign player in all this, let’s have one.

Or China if you really want to talk about corruption and how it deeply implicates with factual evidence Joe and Hunter Biden and the entire family.

The US alt right want the US under Trump to copy a Russian

No, but it seems like the left are way to eager to jump in the sack with China. Heck, look at the NBA...

style form of national socialism, one where white nationalists prevail.
