"I don't know anything about it. I didn't read it."

Sure you don't know anything about it, just like you never know anything about anything. Just like the checks you wrote to Stormy Daniels and claimed to know nothing about. Riiiiiggghhhtttt

These latest, unsurprising revelations go to show that what Americans will have to do is not "redo" the November election, but redo Trump's impeachment because justice matters. Contrary to the disingenuous claim of Maine Senator, Susan Collins, her party leader most emphatically never did "learn his lesson". But now he's going to have to learn the hard way: Humpty Trumpty will soon have a tremendous fall.

Trump and his supporters have consistently bristled at suggestions foreign interference helped his upset 2016 victory. They have sought to discredit the intelligence agencies' findings as the politically charged work of a "deep state."

Incoming to these very comments in 3, 2, 1...

I believe it! I also think Trump may have not been born in the United States! Lets see his papers! we haven't even seen his tax info...

The usual suspects here won't like this because this was a bipartisan report and not some "liberal conspiracy."

Manafort actually hired a Russian spy, for heaven's sake.

Other words in the report say that this was a "grave counterintelligence threat," as opposed to Trump's "hoax" comment.

I wish next election is held with a clear and no interference

Asked about the report at an event in Yuma, Arizona, Trump said: "I don't know anything about it. I didn't read it."


It's all a hoax," Trump told reporters.

Something he has no clue about is a hoax??

Clueless is an understatement!!!

As Russian military intelligence and WikiLeaks released the hacked documents, the report said Trump's campaign sought advance notice, devised messaging strategies to amplify them"and encouraged further theft of information and ... leaks."

Stay classy, Trump.

The veracity of the hacked emails was also questioned?

No doubt foreign governments have been meddling in elections (as the US has done in other countries for decades). The link below I guess supports that Clinton is a Chinese "asset"?

I wonder that we don't see Facebook advertising the incredible ROI of $6,000 of spend to sway an election.

Will there be ineffective interference in this election (beyond CCP taking out full page adds in Iowa newspapers)? Definitely. I would guess CCP would love a president that would follow the "established norms".

They make Russia look like the backward "1980's cold war policy" that Obama mentioned.

No, I am not OK with any of it but know realpolitik of all superpowers and their attempts to manipulate.

Manafort should be charged for treason as he has colluded with a foreign power to undermine the 2016 elections. Yet he is out of prison because of COVID, what a stupid Justice system.

Finding and giving the truth to the American people is defined as "interfering" and "aiding the enemy" by the U.S. government. This is why Edward Snowden had to flee to Russia and was pardoned by neither Obama nor Trump and why Bradley/Chelsea Manning spent so many years in prison.

Wake up. The real enemy of the American people is the U.S. government and the rich people that run it. Its a big club and we ain't in it.

Given that America has been meddling in/subverting/influencing elections around the globe since at least the late 1940s, this looks like a classic case of just desserts. The hypocrisy and faux outrage is sickening.

A bombshell. A watershed moment. The moment of truth. Beginning of the end... etc

Hillary paid Russia to interfere on her behalf. Trump trolled the Dems when everyone knew Russia interferes in American elections. No evidence of collusion. Stop beating a dead horse JT.

Obama did nothing except illegally spy on Trumps election campaign with illegal FISA warrants based on falsified evidence. The first deep state DNC operative has pleaded guilty. More to come.

The "crime" of Wikileaks is laying open some Clinton dirt. But the fake media turns that around and blames the messenger. Pathetic.

The "crime" of Wikileaks is laying open some Clinton dirt.

That's a really weird way to write illegally hacking a server.

Also what's missing from this story is the fact that Bannon, Kushner, and Trump Jr. were all referred to prosecutors, again proving that Donald surrounds himself with liars and crooks.

Wow would they all lie? Hmmmmm....

Russia's alleged election interference, which Moscow denies, sparked a two-year-long U.S. investigation headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

In a report released last year, Mueller found no conclusive evidence of coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign.....

Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh on Tuesday said the report vindicated his stance that there was no "collusion" between Trump's 2016 campaign and Russia.

What a hoot. Mueller's two-year witch hunt was sparked by the democrat party's desire to somehow convince the voters that Trump had "COLLUDED" with Russians to win a Presidential election. There is STILL no evidence that any such collusion had ever occured. Article author, Mark Hosenball, is simply repeating democrat party propaganda.

Vanessa Carlisle - Wake up. The real enemy of the American people is the U.S. government and the rich people that run it. Its a big club and we ain't in it.

You aren't in it. You are only speaking for yourself.

You aren't in it. You are only speaking for yourself.

This is what absolutely kills me about the Trump cultists on this website. They spent 2016 screaming that "Trump is gonna stick it to the elites!! We want Trump for the working man!!". When it became clear that Trump, a multibillionaire who brags about how he openly corrupts politics to benefit himself and wealthy crooks like him, had to suddenly pivot to "actually I love him for oppressing the poor and lavishing money on the rich, because I own a business and a yacht and a private jet".

Weird how almost every foreign billionaire in Japan posts on JT, all the time. You'd think they'd be running their businesses. But they're not.
