Trump doesn't trust his own intelligence service. What would be next? He will use KGB reports to build foreign policy?

Resurrection of McCarthyism
The Russians are trying to influence the affairs of foreign governments, you say? Hmm... Say, THAT'S new!

Not.

Oh, for a free, objective, critically-thinking press!

We're expected to believe that Vladmir Putin put zombie serum in the wells of flyover country, creating lemmings in overalls to trudge mindlessly to the polls for reasons they knew not.

The Democrats lost the presidential election because they supported a horrible candidate with a decades-long history of corruption. Find one person who changed their mind becausde of Wikileaks. Good luck.

And if the government knew or suspected that that the commies were trying to throw the election BEFORE November 8 (as they claim), why did they wait until AFTER the election to start this narrative?

This is a classic case of fake news.

Re: Resurrection of McCarthyism
When has a foreign power not wanted to influence US presidential elections?  It find it amusing that the democrat objections stem from the dirty underwear being put on display not that there was dirty underwear to begin with, they're sorry, and won't behave in such fashion in the future.

Re: Resurrection of McCarthyism
How charmingly naive of you.

Vlad Putin is the former head of the FSB and cyber spying is the FSBs bread and butter.

Trump is so stupid that when Putin called him "brilliant" he took it to mean smart, and the Russian word Putin used does not mean that at all, it means colouful. It is the same put down he uses to describe homosexuals.

Of course Putin wants a bloated, self-sefving ignoramus like Trump as president. Putin won't even have to say anything, trump will be so busy fighting an all-out trade war with China within 3 months that Russia will be able to do as it sees fit.

Fake news that.

Re: Resurrection of McCarthyism
Totally agree, This is the way how big politics is made when you've got a professional paranoic spy as a president of the country with nuclear weapon. I really can't understand why they are still not isolated like North Korea.
