If you believe the US MSM it’s as if Russia has some advanced technology which gives them mind control over US voters.

Putin is busy enough trying to convince Russian voters to vote for him let alone convincing voters across the ocean to vote for some Bernie Sanders guy.

I believe the first person who broke the rules about discussing what happened in that briefing was Trump sycophant Devin Nunes. If Trump's concerned about leaks, he knows exactly where to look -- at the guy living in his pocket.

False. He could only serve 2 more weeks by law in the temporary role.

Now you fired your intel chief for briefing Congress about it.

Speaking to reporters as he left the White House for a trip to India, Trump said he had not been briefed on intelligence that Russia was aiming to boost the campaign of Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, and he called for a probe into Schiff for the leak. Schiff, a Democrat, denied the allegation.

Not much of an accusation. Seems like he is simply calling the bluff of the swamp. If this Schiff character "leaks" fictional intelligence stuff then of that should be investigated.

Made my morning! No: Putin does not need to "convince" anyone; he just kills his opponents.

"I haven't seen any intelligence that Russia is doing anything to attempt to get President Trump re-elected," White House National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien told ABC's "This Week."

"I also haven't seen any evidence the President likes to grab women by the __"

"I think what it could be is, you know, the Democrats are treating Bernie Sanders very unfairly and it sounds to me like a leak from Adam Schiff because they don't want Bernie Sanders to represent them. It sounds like it's (2016) all over again for Bernie Sanders," Trump said.

One socialist helping another socialist...

The president has repeatedly cast doubt on U.S. intelligence findings that Russia intervened to help him in the 2016 presidential election against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state.

Even though every US and European intel agency, the Mueller report, and REPUB Bill Burr's Senate Select Intel Committee has said that's exactly what Russia did... Donnie trusts Putin.

"Nice deflection, Mr President. But your false claims fool no one," he wrote in a tweet. "You welcomed Russian help in 2016, tried to coerce Ukraine’s help in 2019, and won’t protect our elections in 2020. Now you fired your intel chief for briefing Congress about it. You’ve betrayed America. Again."

BINGO!

Dirty Donnie and the Dumpster Dwellers war on democracy continues...

Putin does not need to "convince" anyone; he just kills his opponents.

An inconvenient fact is that Alexei Navalny, Putin's most vocal critic, is alive and well, publicly walking free and criticizing Putin every day.

Why doesn't Putin just kill him?

No, what Trump have done was fire every Obama holdover that still occupy the WH. Get rid of them, the leaking stops. Reagan did it, Trump should have done the same thing.

US intel is top notch - just ask Putin

Liar-In-Chief - again! Pretty sure this is Donnie's way of getting back at Schiff by falsely blaming him for something he hopes will divide the Dems....

It's funny how v-neck suddenly cares about Bernie.

Twitter

“Imagine that. New Acting DNI Ric Grenell asks Pierson for the underlying intelligence evidence, data, etc... and all of a sudden media reports: Shelby Pierson "appears to have overstated the Intel community assessment"...

cnn even walking back. Somebody got caught leaking.

It's shameful how the Democrats are trying to connect Bernie with the Russians to derail him. ( OK, he did honeymoon in Russia ( then the Soviet Union ) but that was a long time ago. )

Uh, he was cleared of that false allegation. There's nothing in this article about Nunez. Try again.

It seems that Trump is the only person congratulating the Sanders campaign on his win. That should tell the Democrats how fractured their party is.

Why doesn't Putin just kill him?

Any number of reasons. You've fallen into the logical failure of creating a false duality.

without providing any evidence to back up his claims.

Ignored.

If you say so.

Every notice how Donny's boot lickers refuse to place responsibility with him and instead constantly blame Obama and Hillary?

The best part of this story is that the information Schiff leaked wasn't correct. Again. At least Schiff is consistent.

Any evidence against all that Schiff leaked this info? Didn’t think so. Carry in pushing pure speculation as fact.
