Chuck Todd is an extremely partisan Democrat and it shows when he tries to do news.

LOL

Yeah sure Waja! Sure ... pure as the driven snow ...

Donald Trump wasn't the only presidential candidate whose campaign was boosted by officials of a former Soviet bloc country.

Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton's allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.

As I noted last week, the disinformation of Russian intelligence has reached deeply within the Republican Party, s deep as the Oval Office.

It is not Mr Todd who is making the Republicans repeat Russian disinformation, it is the Republicans, in this instance it was Sen Kennedy.

Maybe, instead of giving Mr Todd grief, some should really ask why Republican Senator Kennedy is repeating Russian intelligence disinformation talking points.

So what's your point?

What does your comment have to do with Russian intelligence feeding disinformation to Republicans, and those Republicans repeating that disinformation on Sunday talk shows, during Congressional investigations, and during Presidential press sprays?

#5 | Posted by AndreaMackris

You act like the Ukrainians were the only allies who publicly questioned Trump's fitness to hold the office of president. They were not! Several of our allies expressed concern during the 2016 elections. Why aren't the Republicans demanding an investigation of their intentions? Why isn't Trump sending Rudy and Bill Barr into those countries looking for some evidence of a conspiracy mounted agasint his campaign?

The ONLY country where we have irrefutable evidence of them actually tampering with our election processes for the sole purpose of influencing the election in favor of one candidate over another was Putin and the Russian efforts to help Trump win in 2016. And now, while Trump tries to undermine the 2020 elections, he virtually has the entire Republican party, or at least those who are members of Congress, running interference for him, distracting the country from seeing what he trying to do all over again.

Feel free to address my question: Was what he was saying true or false?

Since you're too cowardly to answer me directly, I'll give a spoiler alert: it was true.

Which brings us to the salient point, which you'll also be too cowardly to address: Why are you supporting someone spouting Russian propaganda?

"You act like the Ukrainians were the only allies who publicly questioned Trump's fitness to hold the office of president.
#10 | POSTED BY OCUSER "

And how many other allies participated with the Steele Dossier hoax by providing materials? How many others colluded with DNC operatives like Chulupa to get the Ukraine government to dig for dirt on Trump and his campaign - the most notable being the 'black book' that forced Manafort's resignation but has since been so discredited it was not used at his trial?

The Dems used Ukraine for its corrupt little playground for years and were scared -------- that their business model would be broken by a Trump election.

All this talk of Russians with Pokemon Go, FB ads, etc are virtually meaningless when comparing it to the Ukraine black book or the Steele Dossier - which was intended to be weaponized prior to the election.

For Jeff, defending Trump comes as naturally as breathing the air.

What Jeff will never admit is. He loves Trump as our president and fully supports him.

You will have to try a whole lot harder. Your comment borders upon humorous.

For starters, this is not about a phone app or FB ads.

It is about the level of Russian intelligence's penetration into the Republican party, as confirmed by the Republicans themselves.

Regarding the Ukrainian black book...

Imprisoned Paul Manafort is Rudy Giuliani's guide on Ukraine 'black ledger'
www.washingtonexaminer.com

...Rudy Giuliani consulted the imprisoned Paul Manafort through a lawyer for his investigation into allegations that Ukraine aided Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

The repeated outreach centered on the "black ledger," which purportedly showed millions of dollars in secretive payments from ousted pro-Russian Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych to Manafort, and whether it was used to convince U.S. authorities to reopen a case against Manafort.

"I said, Was there really a black book? If there wasn't, I really need to know. Please tell him I've got to know,'" Giuliani told the Washington Post regarding what he asked of Manafort's lawyer. "He came back and said there wasn't a black book."...


Regarding the Steele Dossier...

The Steele Dossier: A Retrospective
www.lawfareblog.com

...The dossier compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele remains a subject of fascination"or, depending on your perspective, scorn. Indeed, it was much discussed during former FBI Director Jim Comey's testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee on Dec. 7. Published almost two years ago by BuzzFeed News in January 2017, the document received significant public attention, first for its lurid details regarding Donald Trump's pre-presidential alleged sexual escapades in Russia and later for its role in forming part of the basis for the government's application for a FISA warrant to surveil Carter Page.

Our interest in revisiting the compilation that has come to be called the "Steele Dossier" concerns neither of those topics, at least not directly. Rather, we returned to the document because we wondered whether information made public as a result of the Mueller investigation"and the passage of two years"has tended to buttress or diminish the crux of Steele's original reporting....

As a raw intelligence document, the Steele dossier, we believe, holds up well so far...

Sometimes I wonder if the Republican assault upon the media is little more than a questioning of why the media do not parrot the Russian intelligence disinformation that they (the Republicans) want to hear 24/7.

"It is about the level of Russian intelligence's penetration into the Republican party, as confirmed by the Republicans themselves."

And yet, ZERO evidence of collusion or that it changed a single vote as proven by the Mueller report. How to you square that circle?

"Imprisoned Paul Manafort is Rudy Giuliani's guide on Ukraine 'black ledger'
www.washingtonexaminer.com"

The Black Book is a HOAX. The US government knows this which is why it was not used at the trial. I have no doubt that Manafort is shady - as was the entire Podesta Group's actions on that account. However, even from his co-conspirators, they confirm no transactions were ever made in cash, it was all wire transfers. So, the black book is a hoax - one perpetrated by DNC operatives in Ukraine to dirty the Trump campaign.

"The Steele Dossier: A Retrospective
www.lawfareblog.com"

The Steele Dossier is also a HOAX. It's most important claim is that Trump's lawyer met in Prague in order to collude with the Russians. This central claim was debunked by the Mueller Report and Cohen's own testimony. Again, no denying that. As to the rest of the garbage in the report - like hooker pee tapes, again - ZERO CONFIRMING EVIDENCE - it was completely made up by Russian and Ukrainian officials and delivered via a foreign agent (Steele) to try to interfere in the campaign.

So, time after time the Dems are caught redhanded colluding with foreign governments to influence to the 2016 election - but Dems are so hypocritical that this does not even make them feel uncomfortable.

Funny, I usually can't watch MTP because until a couple of months ago, Todd would have nothing but Drumpf sycophants and GOP blow holes on his show spewing talking points, obvious lies and debunked conspiracy theories with zero fact checks or pushback. Then in October, Todd was caught committing the sin (in the eyes of Cult45) of doing journalism when he challenged the Russian propaganda peddled by Ron Johnson. Now he does it again with the unfortunately named Senator John Kennedy, a few more examples of journalism from Mr Todd and I might have to start watching his show. Hey (R)ejects, this is what journalism looks like, it's not what happens with the giggling couch tumors on Faux 'n Fiends.

You're confusing partisanship with fact finding and truth telling.

One of the problems that repubs are having these days is they don't know what position to take because Trump is on all sides of every issue. It is his way to avoiding accountability. But, for those decreasing number of repubs that still think for themselves, they know a lying POS when they see one and they know Trump to be a lying POS.

Another math moron?

Or perhaps you don't know what "zero" means? Or is it you cannot face reality?

Not enough evidence to convict is not "zero" evidence

There was plenty of evidence. Not enough to indict the President for conspiracy.

There was plenty of evidence of cooperation. And tons of evidence for obstruction and abuse of power.

And now he is being impeached. And IRA still thinks there is zero evidence of Trumps corruption. Crying about others while Humpy and his kids rake it in like a pigs at the public trough. Like crying "what about" is gonna help Humpy now.

Humpy Dumpy cried for his wall.

That's false. 'Ukraine hacked into the DNC to meddle in the 2016 election' is propaganda. It's also a red herring.
"Not a single Republican member of this committee said Russia did not meddle in the 2016 elections," Representative Elise Stefanik, Republican of New York, said Thursday.

Ukraine did meddle in the 2016 election, but not via hacking.

The people duped by Putin are those in the liberal mainstream media like Chuckie Todd and the looney leftists politicians like the Democrats.

It is clear to common folks like me that yes Russia did try to influence our elections and always have done so. But so did many other nations like NoKo, Iran, Isreal, and yes Ukraine.

Why can't the media and the Dems understand that multiple nations tried their best to influence our elections and that Pres Trump never ever colluded with any of them?
