    I provided a source. Read into it however you like. The wiretapping story is far from dead yet. Take a "victory lap" though.

    "Conspiracy" theories are mounting. Where to begin. I'll keep the "gates" coming as they are uncovered. We wouldn't want this thread to become an echo chamber...

    Love you guys xoxx ;)

    I bet he enjoyed Maddow's little 20+ minute rant of Russian conspiracies before the big revelation of nothing... :)

    Yes, BBC and Reuters are out to get Drumpf. Listen JV, how is it that someone like you can connect all the dots to Obama's wiretap but the POTUS cannot? The irony. You are the LCD that Trump needed to ascend to President. Congrats.

    Yeah loved it :rolleyes: Maddow was an idiot for that circus. In fact, I didn't even know she was having a special on the returns. Watching MSNBC all day isn't exactly my preference. Nice try though.

    Mike Flynn Worked for Several Russian Companies, Was Paid More Than $50,000

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/mike-f...ian-companies-besides-rt-documents-1489683618

    President Trump’s former national security adviser, Mike Flynn, was paid tens of thousands of dollars by Russian companies shortly before he became a formal adviser to the then-candidate, according to documents obtained by a congressional oversight committee that revealed business interests that hadn’t been previously known.

    Mr. Flynn was paid $11,250 each by a Russian air cargo company that had been suspended as a vendor to the United Nations following a corruption scandal, and by a Russian cybersecurity company that was then trying to expand its business with the U.S. government.
    Those engagements took place in the summer and fall of 2015, a year after he had been fired as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and while he continued to maintain a top-secret level security clearance.
    In December 2015, the Kremlin-backed news organization RT also paid Mr. Flynn $33,750 to speak about U.S. foreign policy and intelligence matters at a conference in Moscow.

    In February 2016, Mr. Flynn became an official adviser to the presidential campaign of Mr. Trump, who was taking a softer stance toward Moscow than his Republican rivals at the time.
    Price Floyd, a spokesman for Mr. Flynn, said he reported his RT appearance to the Defense Intelligence Agency, as required. Mr. Floyd didn’t immediately respond to questions about the other fees.

    The new details about Mr. Flynn’s speaking engagements are contained in emails and documents provided to congress by his speaker’s bureau, which is called Leading Authorities, and shed light on a continuing inquiry into Mr. Flynn’s and other Trump associates’ ties to Moscow.

    On Monday, FBI Director James Comey and other current and former U.S. officials are scheduled to testify about possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election before a congressional committee that is also probing Trump associates’ ties to Russia.
    Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from any investigation related to the 2016 presidential campaign after he failed to disclose the extent of his own contacts with the Russian ambassador to the U.S., Sergei Kislyak.

    Mr. Trump fired Mr. Flynn in February after he failed to tell White House officials about phone calls he had with Mr. Kislyak, in which the two discussed the potential lifting of U.S. sanctions on Russia, according to U.S. officials familiar with the contents of the conversations.
    While the documents from Mr. Flynn’s speaker’s bureau provide the most detail to date on his business dealings with Russia, they don’t show what other work he may have been doing outside his role as a paid speaker. Mr. Flynn commanded high fees for speaking out on the state of global security and talking about his own role as one of the most senior intelligence officials in the Obama administration.
    Mr. Flynn was removed from his post as DIA chief after complaints of poor management and organization, not because of a policy dispute, according to people who worked with him at the time.

    Last week, Mr. Flynn filed papers with the Justice Department acknowledging that his firm was paid $530,000 to work in the U.S. on behalf of the interests of the Turkish government. Mr. Flynn had performed those services while he was advising Mr. Trump, then a presidential candidate.

    Little additional information has become public about other clients the former military intelligence chief’s private consulting firm, Flynn Intel Group, may have had before the retired general’s appointment as national security adviser.

    Why is it interference when Russia attempts to influence the results of the election for their own agenda but not when the media attempts to influence the results for their own agenda?

    The media doesn't have missiles targeting American Cities from both land and sea. The Media is not a sovereign state. So, unless you're of the opinion like Trump that Russia is our friend now and only has our best interests at heart, perhaps looking at Putin's actions would tell a different story. The Russians have no business interfering in American domestic politics period. Then again, perhaps the Russians really are the good guys now. At least according to the POTUS.

    The media doesn't have our best interest at heart so if that is your argument my comment still applies.

    American politics impact global politics so every country has a vested interest in the leadership of other countries. So, again, why is it interference to attempt to influence the election? The media interferes for their own interest as well.

    You're asking why we care about foreign governments influencing our elections when we don't care about Americans influencing American elections?

    Well, I don't believe the media is out to get America. That's a narrative that fits the Trump view of the world, not mine. Even though other countries may have some interest in our gov't is elected and the policies that regime implements, they still have no right to interfere in American politics. If you want to go down the road of destablizing every gov't on earth, then you can accept every country on earth subverting our country as well. That door swings both ways.

    I will never accept any other country's right to interfere in our electoral process and at the same time, I will not support any American efforts at regime change. Frankly, I think acceptance of foreign interference in our elections is tantamount to treason.

    Or when the GOP gerrymanders Congressional districts to the extent that minority voting is diluted to the point of being ineffective. (Texas)
