Ex-MI6 agent so worried by his Donald Trump discoveries he started working without pay
Christopher Steele, the former MI6 agent who investigated Donald Trump’s alleged Kremlin links, was so worried by what he was discovering that at the end he was working without pay, The Independent has learned. Mr Steele also decided to pass on information to both British and American intelligence officials after concluding that such material should not just be in the hands of political opponents of Mr Trump, who had hired his services, but was a matter of national security for both countries.

“Mr Trump’s campaign team had agreed to a Russian request to dilute attention on Moscow’s intervention in Ukraine. Four days later Mr Trump stated that he would recognise Moscow’s annexation of Crimea. A month later officials involved in his campaign asked the Republican party’s election platform to remove a pledge for military assistance to the Ukrainian government against separatist rebels in the east of the country. … There seemed to be little progress in a proper inquiry into Mr Trump. The Bureau, instead, seemed to be devoting their resources in the pursuit of Hillary Clinton’s email transgressions. The New York office, in particular, appeared to be on a crusade against Ms Clinton.”

For Republicans, there was no allegation too small to investigate with respect to Secretary Clinton, but now there is no scandal too big to ignore for Donald Trump.

FBI Director James Comey testifies that Russia hacked Republicans, too

  • Russian hackers infiltrated Republican data but didn’t leak any of the information, FBI Director James Comey told Congress Tuesday.
  • “There was evidence of hacking directed at state-level organizations, state-level campaigns and the [Republican National Committee], but old domains of the RNC, meaning old emails they weren’t using. None of that was released.” - Comey
  • He also said there was no sign hackers had targeted current RNC computers or the Trump campaign. Read more

Russia paid trolls to wage information warfare on behalf of Donald Trump

  • For the better part of the past decade, social media campaigns featuring legions of Russia-loving patriots have been a key strategy in the Russian fight against dissident views at home.
  • These trolls aren’t special agents sitting in darkened rooms in the heart of the Kremlin. 
  • Instead, they’re often white-collar workers in nondescript offices throughout Russia. Often, it’s hard to trace these workers to Putin and his close associates. Read more

‘Dear Donald, congratulations on winning the election that we totally did not rig in your favour (the boys in the FSB hacking unit send a shout out, by the way). Let us celebrate by erasing all of your debts to Sberbank! Ahahaha. I am fucking kidding. Those debts do not go away until America does. Now get to work! From Russia with love, Vova.’
What the last 48 hours told us about Trump's next 4 years
President-elect Donald Trump went nose-to-nose Wednesday with a press corps itching to cross-examine him after more than five months at arm's length, while his top nominees faced off with senators during a strategic crush of confirmation hearings.
By Gregory Krieg, CNN
  1. Donald Trump still hates the press, except for Fox News and Breitbart.
  2. Trump’s Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, is so supportive of Russia and Trump’s buddy Vladimir Putin that he refuses to condemn Russia’s murdering journalists and bombing civilians.
  3. Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, will not pursue alleged civil rights violations by police and police departments.
  4. FBI director James Comey, asked whether the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign’s alleged contacts with Russia, refused to comment: “Especially in a public forum, we never confirm or deny a pending investigation.” (Except, of course, when it’s Hillary Clinton.)

@damedvedevand I thought it’d be funny to let this youngster try to guess our PC’s login password. Bad idea. As we giggled, he cracks it somehow and immediately finds our folder of unflattering selfies and starts uploading them to Facebook. The nerve of this nihilistic prick: “get your hands off me, or I post your uglies.” I’ve never felt so vulnerable. One of the SWAT snipers eventually took him out with a head-shot, but they cut it far too close for my liking p.s. my password is no longer “DeliciousPonyWarts;)”, in case you are thinking of trying the same thing
Fox News' Shep Smith Blasts Trump For Lashing Out At Reporters
"You owe this to the American people" to answer questions, he said.

Even Fox News has had enough of Trump dodging questions, lying, and attacking the free press:

“He keeps repeating ridiculous, throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia as if we’re some kind of fools for asking the question. Really?! … Your opposition was hacked and the Russians were responsible for it, and your people were on the phone with Russia on the same day it’s happening, and we’re fools for asking the questions? No, sir, we’re not fools for asking the questions, and we demand to know the answer to this question.”
