    The chat in the live stream of the meeting was even more cancerous. They were praising him for outing 'the jesuits pulling the strings of the zionists'. What.
    Remember, you can't spell Ignatius of Loyola without IGN.

    Winning what?
    Winning a semi small argument in SH, the pride of all left/right wing Facepunchers.

    /s

    ALSO: Both the Wash. Post and the NY Time are still wating for verification of the ACTUAL INFO in the OP's articles/videos. Give it a few more hours and this entire "scandal" is doomed to a dustbin.

    America voted for Trump in a free and fair election. Disagree?
    Who cares, this isn't about whether or not he was elected fairly it's about whether a foreign country has compromising information on the person holding the highest office in the land, and how he's too fucking stupid to hold a press conference to clear the air about it.

    I hope to god he gets impeached, btw. Whether from this or something else, I'll be surprised if it doesn't happen. I don't even care about Pence getting into office, him and the clown circus that's the GOP are the ones who are really going to be running the circus anyways. At least they'll be able to fuck everything up with some dignity.

    I kinda' want to see the reactions of anyone who actually believes in the nepotistic blowhard when it happens too. This entire charade has been amazing for my mood. Is this how republicans have felt when they tuned into FOX news nightly over the course of the past eight years? Maybe they're onto something...

    I think the reality is that Trump won the election. He will be president for the next four years, at the least. And you say I reverted, reverted from what?

    before that, he'll be impeached and in a federal prison, and when the feds come to drag him out, he'll threaten to sue them for laying hands on the President
    lock him up!

    There is now a name attached to the document, the 'ex British intelligence officer' is one Christopher Steele according to the WSJ.

    The fact that more stuff is coming out shows that the story has legs and isn't some BS hoax by /pol.

    I didn't vote for him, nobody in my immediate family voted for him, and I repeatedly made the argument against voting for him among my friends, many of whom didn't vote for him. The numerical majority of Americans didn't vote for him, and I've been opposed to the electoral college before this whole charade because I didn't like the idea that members could just decide not to vote for the candidate their constituents voted for.

    The only way I could be less responsible for this is if I personally went out and campaigned for Bernie and/or Clinton.

    Mr. Burrows, reached at his home outside London on Wednesday, said he wouldn’t “confirm or deny” that Orbis had produced the report. A neighbor of Mr. Steele’s said Mr. Steele said he would be away for a few days. In previous weeks Mr. Steele has declined repeated requests for interviews through an intermediary, who said the subject was “too hot.””
    EVEN THE GUY WHO IS THE CO-OWNER WITH THE GUY WHO WROTE THE DOSSIER WON'T CONFIRM THAT THEY WROTE IT. Along with that, the guy who wrote the dossier will not even TALK about the fucking thing.

    You know that when the first result for his name is literally the WSJ that was just posted that you're talking about someone who's definitely not been on the radar until now, which is making me think this definitely has some truth to it.

    Oh boy. What's going to happen?

    Not just you personally, just some people in general have a weird habit of acting like the election was the end of the matter and that "but trump won!" is the only retort necessary no matter how unfit he proves himself to be.

    They break character too sometimes, I checked what were the reactions when Rick Perry was chosen as Secretary of Energy, and people were actually upvoting comments how this was a bad choice until mods shut everybody down like "Trump surely knows what he is doing, this is good etc"

    Can we all just take a moment to reflect on the fact that our President was happily interviewed by Alex Jones, a 9/11 truther who posits that our government faked Sandy Hook, and drugged our water supply.

    But behind the seal of the President-elect, called CNN "fake news" and told a reporter to be quiet.

    This shit isn't funny anymore. Our soon to be President has had three months to stop posting Twitter rants, and start acting like our leader. Is it ever going to happen?

    For real, if someone knows they didn't write something, and there's this much heat on them they'd just say "no". "Neither confirm nor deny" are the weasel words used to mitigate culpability of something you actually had some hand in.

    Obama didn't tweet articles from fake news sites and do interviews with conspiracy nuts.

    He also didn't throw a paddy like a literal child.

    There's a difference between one incident and a concerted effort. On top of that the reasons behind the incidents matter as well. Trump is outright trying to ignore what's inconvenient to him. Criticizing news media when there's an issue is perfectly fine. Criticizing them and acting like a total child just because they said something that doesn't fit your narrative is not.

    btw, if people were ever really willing to immediately believe those who claim they sent in the info on 4chan:
    Seven years ago the final evolutions of the Pokémon Black and White starters were "leaked." They were so ridiculous nobody wanted to believe them. Everyone cried "fake!" 4chan was rife with people showing bits and pieces of "proof" they weren't real.
    Eventually one gentleman, anonymous of course, came forth and claimed he had made the fakes himself, providing pictures and detailed descriptions on how he came to create them. Everyone bought it

    Spoiler alert:
    They were real. Anonymous 4chan users claimed they were behind it just for laughs. they were real, no matter how absurd they were


    food for thought

    Which would be cute, but tangential to the actual issue, which is that Trump would essentially be a puppet of the Russian government.

    Oh goody Canadian pity points. If I get enough do I get a trip to Tim Hortons?

    If it ends up being true, I'll be proven wrong and accept that I was wrong.

    But until that BI guy or his company actually comes out and confirms the dossier, which the agent had refused to talk about for at least a month according to the WSJ article, I'll still be skeptical.
