Politically it was a bad move by Republicans to have allowed a Special Consul to be appointed. The issue, to me, is not the veracity of the Special Consul, but the opening given to the Democrats to use this investigation as another launchpad for other baseless accusations. No matter what the Special Consul concludes, the Democrats will malicious twist the findings to assert that the investigation was somehow "deficient".

The Democrats have been calling for investigations of Republicans as the Democrats claim to seek the facts concerning possible collusion between the Republicans and Russians. Well, given the Democrats desire to uncover all facts, will the Democrats demand an investigation of whether the DNC and/or Sanders colluded with Mr. Hodgkinson in attacking Republicans?

It it is my understanding that Mr. Hodgkinson did work for Sanders as a volunteer. So if one plays those colluding games, there is a plausible nexus to investigate Mr. Hodgkinson connection to the Democrats.

I seriously doubt it, since the Democrats so-called quest for the facts is politically motivated to damage the Republicans and not actually meant to uncover the truth.

If they did it, they probably used Access to accomplish such task, definitely.

Re: Poll: Did Russia Hack and control the US Election?

I think that where was something, that has involved russians. Maybe there was agreement between Trump and Putin. Or maybe Putin has caught Trump into some weird trap

Thumbs up Re: Poll: Did Russia Hack and control the US Election?

Thank God the CIA, DEA, and several other US agencies never ever even thought of trying to place a dictator or rig any election!
Ok, maybe the US put Castro in Cuba, but surely that was the only time.
Oh, and that guy in Nigeria, Central America, Panama, the Shaw of Iran, and maybe a few (ahem... scores) more.
What were those photos of Democratic President Roosevelt making all those deals with Stalin? Took years to find out we gave Stalin the atomic bomb. Stalin seemed like a nice guy. Nobody ever heard anybody who complained about Stalin in the USSR. Even the newspaper over there had nothing but good things to say about Stalin.

A dozen Russians on a shoe string budget duped the majority of the US Citizens?
If it is true, why wouldn't the US government want to hire these guys?
or Why wouldn't a US media company want to hire these guys?
Think about it, not one US "intelligence" agency knew about this?
Maybe we just want to hire these guys to do our taxes!

Re: Poll: Did Russia Hack and control the US Election?

The left, the media, and even some Republicans have gone rabidly insane over the Russian involvement in the US election process. They are all hypocrites. The US interferes in the politics of other countries, so those complaining about Russia have no ethical basis to complain. One can make the case that the "red scare" with the resulting anti-Russian mob rule hysteria has been resurrected. Like the old horror movies, breakout the pitchforks and torches and storm the castle.

The US seems to have the arrogant and mistaken belief that the US is the only country that can invent stuff. Other countries can also invent. A partial reflection of that are all the electronics we get from China. Who knows what "evil" lurks in those electronics?

My major concern though, the US, by incessantly howling about so-called intellectual property is that it will be a losing proposition. When China pulls ahead, they will put the screws to us. As the adage goes, "be careful of what you ask for." What goes around comes around. We need to keep the door open so we can "steal" from China.

Re: Poll: Did Russia Hack and control the US Election?

Don't know about what is in Chinese circuitry, but definitely you should be careful of getting your hands on old promotional gifts like Russian-made 4GB thumb drives. Because of my life-time NDA, all I can say is that the mistake of accepting such a gift just ONE TIME was more expensive an event than some recent brief armed conflicts.

US citizens are in denial about our own hacking efforts. US Presidential hacking goes back many administrations, and its quite possible retaliation for something we did to meddle in their political structures.

US citizens are under the impression we can push a button in Kansas and fire a Hellfire missile half way around the world without consequences.

A tiny bit more isolation and reputation building and less meddling with CIA, NAS and FBI.

Protect our own and stop meddling, that's the message the Dems could win on in 2020.

Re: Poll: Did Russia Hack and control the US Election?

Recently there was a headline that Microsoft had detected a Russian hacker contingent that was revving up again with spoofed web sites looking like legit and popular op-ed sites that have been around for a while. We're talking 2018, mid-August for the new reports.
