"So I guess that link from Treehouse I posted earlier this morning should be ignored." not necessarily, MM. first off, why believe the source now? and second, why has this information not been run to ground by special agent mueller?
from Anonamom's linked McCarthy piece above: "There are many different ways the Obama administration could have reacted to the news that Page and Manafort had joined the Trump campaign. It could have given the campaign a defensive briefing. It could have continued interviewing Page, with whom the FBI had longstanding lines of communication. It could have interviewed Manafort. It could have conducted a formal interview with George Papadopoulos rather than approaching him with a spy who asked him loaded questions about Russia’s possession of Democratic-party emails. Instead of doing some or all of those things, the Obama administration chose to look at the Trump campaign as a likely co-conspirator of Russia — either because Obama officials inflated the flimsy evidence, or because they thought it could be an effective political attack on the opposition party’s likely candidate. From the “late spring” on, every report of Trump-Russia ties, no matter how unlikely and uncorroborated, was presumed to be proof of a traitorous arrangement. And every detail that could be spun into Trump-campaign awareness of Russian hacking, no matter how tenuous, was viewed in the worst possible light. The Trump-Russia investigation did not originate with Page or Papadopoulos. It originated with the Obama administration." As I posted yesterday: when Lynch told our congresscritters that she and the Obama team decided against providing a defensive briefing, did any of those critters ask the obvious follow-up question 'why not?'
narc: what's most striking is her (and their) presumption that an Iraqi election signaling "that the Iraqis realize that nation-building is their job alone and they are starting to do it themselves," is in any way contra to the current US Government's wishes.
"Lynch told the House Intelligence Committee that she, Comey, and McCabe discussed whether to provide a "defensive briefing" to the Trump campaign. ... It didn't happen,..." Was she asked why not?
fixed?

lurkersusie: from your linked federalist piece: Steele added that former top Russian intelligence officers claimed the FSB (the Russian intelligence agency) had compromising information on Trump (related to the “golden showers”) and “a dossier of compromising material on Hillary Clinton,” which had not yet been distributed abroad or to Trump. However, according to Steele’s memo, “the Kremlin had been feeding Trump and his team valuable intelligence on his opponents, including Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.,/b>” so what was this "intelligence" on Clinton? After all, we're supposed to assume that all of Steele's info is gospel, right?

CH - no idea about that ABC series, but this one was co-written by Lawrence Wright and is very faithful to his book.

watching The Looming Tower. As with the book, i don't agree with every interpretation, but just like the book, it's riveting and excellent.

lurkersusie - thx for the Greenwald link. he's a curious one,no?. did he get red-pilled somewhere along the line? one thing that irks me about all the focus on the 'who' here, is the unexamined assumption of the 'what'. For example: "Whatever else is true, the CIA operative and FBI informant used to gather information on the Trump campaign in the 2016 campaign has,..." 'Gather'? How about "create", "invent" and/or "plant"?

so neither Comey nor Lynch get to review or comment on the OIG report before it is finalized and given to Congress. sorry not sorry.
Ext: It was ... (drumroll) ... a bipartisan effort! (Bernie progs, natch)
... coming soon: OIG Report: No valid basis for Code Red Media: Stormy!!!!
Kev - did you read the NYT piece anonamom linked above regarding the use of hallucinogenics in psychiatry? curious to hear your thoughts if you did.
given all of his connections, etc, if Halper was not an FBI/CIA plant/spy for Obama, why wasn't he also an object of suspicion a la Page, papadopoulos, manafort and Flynn? just how dumb do they think we are?
