Former CIA official and Clinton backer: ´Smoke
but no fire´ in Trump´s Russia ties

The Hill, by BROOKE SEIPEL

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 3/16/2017 8:12:19 AM

A supporter of Hillary Clinton and former acting CIA director Michael Morell suggested there isn´t enough evidence to believe that aides on President Trump´s campaign team colluded with Russia, NBC reported Wednesday. Morell was reportedly one of Clinton´s top picks to head the CIA had she won, and previously called President Donald Trump an "unwitting agent of the Russian Federation." "On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire, at all," Morell reportedly said at an event sponsored by the intelligence website Cipher Brief.

We know about Morell. Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghasi.

“Isn’t enough evidence” from a guy like him means absolutely nothing.

For Clinton supporters, operatives and cockroaches it is far more preferable to operate in darkness. Even a hint of light and they scurry to disavow their previous statements. The news cycle is getting rather loud with all the walk back statements coming from the left.

I don´t believe there was any smoke either but some coming from the Clinton camp. This is a hoax about Russia and Trump made up by the Clintons.

What Clinton sycophant Morell meant to say but couldn´t quite bring himself to do was there is NO evidence of a Trump/Russia connection. He felt he had to dress it up a bit by saying there is ´smoke´ but no fire. Okay, define smoke? Either there is a connection or you are lying - all of you on the Left are lying....

So, will this be the end of the story (I don´t like using the word narrative, as it makes it sound too important which is what they want people to think) the Democrats have been pushing now?

Does not matter even if there were ties. The only crime is that Obama´s people were electronically breaking into the Trump Tower and stealing private information. All involved need to be arrested and locked up including the bosses like Obama.

In other words, he´s saying stop looking at this before you find out this was a coup attempt from within our security agencies. I don´t want to go to jail.

Trump Adviser’s Visit to Moscow
Got the F.B.I.’s Attention
New York Times, by SCOTT SHANE, MARK MAZZETTI *    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/20/2017 7:57:09     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — Ever since F.B.I. investigators discovered in 2013 that a Russian spy was trying to recruit an American businessman named Carter Page, the bureau maintained an occasional interest in Mr. Page. So when he became a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign last year and gave a Russia-friendly speech at a prestigious Moscow institute, it soon caught the bureau’s attention. That trip last July was a catalyst for the F.B.I. investigation into connections between Russia and President Trump’s campaign, according to current and former law enforcement and intelligence officials. It is unclear exactly what about Mr. Page’s visit drew the

Bill O’Reilly is done at Fox News. The reign of the most-watched host on the right-wing cable news network is coming to an end after two full decades, brought down by a perfect storm of newly unearthed sexual-harassment accusations, a massive advertiser boycott, and the absence of Roger Ailes, a fellow serial harasser of women, to protect him. 21st Century Fox confirmed the end of O’Reilly’s tenure in a Wednesday statement: “After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel.” Even though this latest

Trump and the lame-duck playbook

One of the (many) things that makes the Trump presidency so hard to read is that the chapters are all out of order. Traditionally, during the transition period, presidents-elect are out of the limelight. But while Barack Obama was still in the White House, Donald Trump announced “deals” and appointments that made it seem as if he were already in office, hitting the ground running to Make America Great Again. On the entirely subjective calculus of wins, he probably had more before his inauguration than any president. Conversely, the first 100 days are supposed to be a time of big domestic legislative

‘Political Malpractice’: Obama Couldn’t Understand

If you thought Hillary Clinton’s handling of her email fiasco was puzzling, you’re not alone. Even President Obama was befuddled by the way his former adversary handled the situation, noting that it reminded him of how he beat her in the 2008 primaries. In the new book by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and Sidewire’s Jonathan Allen, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” released today details what should have been a winnable election for the career politician that turned into an abject nightmare over largely avoidable mistakes. For starters, the book details how Obama was at a loss for why Clinton, who

There´s been a lot of confusion and argument over the deportation of Juan Manuel Montes, a 23 year-old Mexican-born man who entered the United States illegally as a child but received legal protection under President Obama´s DACA program. A story in USA Today Tuesday — headline "First protected DREAMer is deported under Trump" — reported that "Federal agents ignored President Trump´s pledge to protect from deportation undocumented immigrants brought into the United States as children by sending a young man back to his native Mexico." The paper reported that Montes had spent the evening of February 17 with his girlfriend in

The long-reported layoffs at ESPN will reportedly take place over the next month. That, according to sports media reporter Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated. What hadn’t been rumored or reported, until now, is that ESPN will look to actually buy out some talent currently under contract. That represents a sharp departure from past ESPN policy. The Bristol-based sports giant typically refrains from buyouts, because like many companies they don’t see the sense in paying someone to not work. The decision to depart from that way of doing business suggests that ESPN wants to have the layoffs and the massive talent shake-up

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) called former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton´s "I´m with her" slogan "phony," according to a new book. In "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton´s Doomed Campaign," The Hill´s Amie Parnes and Sidewire´s Jonathan Allen write that members of the Clinton campaign reached out to Sanders aides in late September to share a script of an ad they wanted the Vermont senator to record. In the ad, Sanders would tout Clinton for her education, healthcare and minimum wage proposals. And he would talk about how then-Republican nominee Donald Trump was wrong about climate change and the economy. At the end of the

The CEO of United Airlines says no one will be fired over the dragging of a man off a plane — including himself. CEO Oscar Munoz said Tuesday that he takes full responsibility "for making this right," and he promised more details later this month after United finishes a review of its policies on overbooked flights. Company executives said it´s too soon to know if the incident is hurting ticket sales. United has been pummeled on social media — #BoycottUnited is a popular hashtag — and late-night television.

President Trump told Fox News that criminal illegal immigrants are “getting the hell out” of the U.S. or being thrown behind bars, as he also took to Twitter to rail against gangs like MS-13 and the Obama administration policies he claims allowed them to flourish in American cities. In an interview that aired Tuesday morning on “Fox & Friends,” Trump spoke highly of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, who is responsible for enforcing Trump’s border policy. Reprising remarks he made at the very start of his presidential bid, he emphasized the importance of removing criminal aliens.

President Donald Trump like other Americans is supposed to file his taxes by Tuesday’s deadline, but that doesn’t mean the public will get to see his elusive returns. Trump was the first presidential candidate in more than 40 years to refuse to release his tax returns, and there´s no indication he will do so as president. Two days after thousands of people protested around the country to demand that Trump release his taxes, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in today´s press briefing that the president will not be releasing his 2016 returns, saying – without explanation – that the 2016

New Yorkers have for years been able to tip a taxi driver by adding a few dollars to their bill before swiping a credit card. But they cannot add a tip when they use the popular ride-hailing app Uber. Now officials in New York City are moving to require Uber to provide a tipping option in the app. The city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission announced a proposal on Monday requiring car services that accept only credit cards to allow passengers to tip the driver using their card. “This rule proposal will be an important first step to improve earning potential

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is out of his job, according to a statement from the cable channel’s corporate parent Wednesday. The host of the top-rated cable TV news show, “The O’Reilly Factor,” was let go amid allegations of sexual harassment and other inappropriate behavior, sources said. “After a thorough and careful review of allegations against him, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Mr. O’Reilly will not return to the Fox News Channel,” said a statement from 21st Century Fox Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch and his sons, Lachlan and James Murdoch. “This decision follows an extensive review done in

The Murdochs have decided Bill O’Reilly’s 21-year run at Fox News will come to an end. According to sources briefed on the discussions, network executives are preparing to announce O’Reilly’s departure before he returns from an Italian vacation on April 24. Now the big questions are how the exit will look and who will replace him. Wednesday morning, according to sources, executives are holding emergency meetings to discuss how they can sever the relationship with the country’s highest-rated cable-news host without causing collateral damage to the network. The board of Fox News’ parent company, 21st Century Fox, is scheduled to

When Bill O’Reilly left for vacation on April 11, he stressed that the break was pre-planned to counter the notion that it had something to do with with the New York Times’ revelation that five women were paid $13 million to settle harassment claims against him. A week later, it looks increasingly unlikely that he’ll ever return to his show. New York’s Gabriel Sherman reported on Tuesday afternoon that “the Murdochs are leaning toward announcing that O’Reilly will not return to the air,” according to three sources. Later that evening multiple outlets said support for O’Reilly is eroding within Fox News.

Chelsea Clinton likes cheddar cheese and Twitter and hates that America can’t come to grips with what the Clinton Foundation actually does. Oh, and her mother lost because voters are sexist. Speaking to Variety magazine (she graces the cover in a white t-shirt, motorcycle jacket and a lot of Photoshop work), Clinton says she’s definitely not interested in running for office, but if she were, she’d have to contend with American voters who stubbornly refuse to acknowledge exactly how much she and her family have contributed to their lives.

An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s. Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on

The knives are out in Hillary Clinton’s camp about who leaked embarrassing information to the authors of a bombshell new book about her “doomed presidential campaign.” There is a witch hunt underway among Clinton’s presidential campaign staffers after the release of the autopsy book, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” by journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes. We’re told the details in the book, which depicts the campaign as inept, “could only have come from someone in the inner circle.” Dennis Cheng, the finance director of Clinton’s presidential campaign, has been sending out messages to determine where the leaks come from.

(Snip) She added that xenophobia played a big part in Trump’s election campaign. “He got that people are deeply angry,” she said. “People are right to be angry, but Donald Trump said it’s their fault—those other people.

The former first daughter says in a piece penned for Well and Good that although these topics are often perceived as uncomfortable to speak about, they are also “ones that have to be brought into the open and addressed.” “Unfortunately, breastfeeding and menstruation remain fraught with cultural stigma, both here in the US and around the globe,” she writes. “Far too many girls and boys alike are socialized to think these are shameful topics-only to be discussed with our
