    I doubt it, the US (Dems) meddled with Netanyahus election. Hell we have a history of meddling with elections around the world so as Obama would say we should "get off our high horse". This is only a big deal because Trump won and people are butt hurt. If Hillary won this would be dropped. Just my opinion.

    Trump has ALWAYS thought the investigation was fake news. Firing Comey does nothing to stop it, and he knows that. Don't parrot a talking point as a fact just because it paints Trump in a negative (read: stupid) light.

    We all know Comey wasn't fired because of the Clinton investigation, that was just PR to feed the American people. Clinton would have fired Comey by now as well. It should say something that both candidates would have fired him. Maybe it's less about the President and more about the person that got fired.... But that would require common sense, so I can see why few people see it that way.

    Trump also never said that to the Russians. That it would "take pressure off" the investigation. Where in the hell do you get this BS from? A leaked anonymous source of a document of the meeting? Can we see the actual meeting notes? At least the declassified edition?

    I guess it depends what dimension you live in. My brain hurts reading your reply.
    Yeah a little dose of reality probably would make your brain hurt. I'm just wasting my time talking to someone whose only response is "I reject the facts and substitute my own."

    Isn't that what you do?
    Republicans and Democrats have the same strategy: "Divide and Conquer"
    Start thinking for yourself and open yourself to possibilities.

    So the fact that the US government has meddled in the affairs of other nations, it means that we're fair game to have our elections meddled with? Sorry, but no. The US meddling in the affairs of other governments is just as damnable and wrong as it is for a foreign power getting involved in our affairs.

    But you're damn right people are "butt hurt" over the fact that it's Trump who won due to the meddling. Want a really quick history lesson as to why?

    Every time the US has meddled in the elections or the politics of another nation, it's been with the express purpose of either destabilizing that nation's government, or to install a leader who would be more friendly toward the United States.

    Now, lets logically apply that to the 2016 elections, and the accusations that Russia meddled. Do you think Russia did it for the good of the US people? Or would it logically follow that it was for the express purpose of destabilizing the US government and/or installing a pro-Russia leader?

    Is it sinking in why this is kind of a big deal?

    Given that the story has now been retracted going to close the thread as it has now lost the thing that made this even somewhat credible.
