They tried to stop it. Sort of. The Washington Post has published a HOLY WOW investigation into the Obama administration's efforts (and lack of efforts) to stop the Russian hacking disaster of the 2016 election that led to the election of Donald Trump, and if there was ever a time where we'd say "OH JUST GO READ IT," this is one of those times. Basically, the story is that President Obama tried to do things to stop the attack, and some people wanted to do more things, but they were all obsessed with not looking like they were being "political" about the election that they didn't act (enough) until it was too late. Also, everybody really really really thought Hillary Clinton was so far ahead she would win anyway, so they weren't that worried they might end up handing responsibility for punishing Russia to a guy who may or may not be a foreign intelligence asset of Russia.
Health care got killed a long time ago w ACA dumb ass... Oh, unless you be "subsidized".
If so, your welcome.
You better go dig a hole.If you're convinced Putin has got you with no proven evidence, you might as well burry yourself.
We call global warming weather, just saying, nothing is warming so that's why they call it climate change.... Shhhhh, it's a secret, don't tell anyone!
You need to get out more. I know Obummer bowed down to guys like this and a man in the White House has been a long time coming but I think he can handle it!
Funny.... You Libs love socialism, Marxism but never seem to com from a place practicing socialism or Marxism??!
You sound incredibly intelligent.:-/
"Does willful inaction count as collusion legally speaking? That is the LEAST you can say about the republican response to Putin's meddling, as laid out in the WaPo article. "
I'd argue that it does. There are plenty of statutes that include the phrase "act OR omission" when they're describing the actions (or inactions) that constitute crimes in aggregate; I'd argue that that's for that specific purpose.
Well - the thing is that it's also based on a set of presumptions ... like that a certain type of person "deserves" to be in charge of governing, because it's "assumed" that they are going to behave decently.
When those people proceed to just throw those norms aside, the people who've been presuming that people who look like them should be in charge all this time tend to flail, because they hadn't assumed that people like that (e.g, white upper-middle-class men) would ever behave like this.
And then they end up using the word "unprecedented" a lot -- but that's because they haven't bothered to ask a sufficient number of people who are NOT those men ... who've seen those people behave like that, historically, all the time.
45 is already 71.
I have no idea how old Yertle is. He looks like Methusaleh.
You know they're going to try to hang on to their power with a death grip.
Bingo. But it is not just presidents, I am pretty sure, that oath is also taken by intelligence agency employees, bottom to top.
And ... *crickets*
Funny how nobody ever has an answer to that question.
They're all full of criticism for POTUS44, but NOBODY has a better idea that would effectively deflect the treasonous opposition he had already anticipated.
Why interfere? He's never going to win.“In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government — a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States, which Trump praises at every opportunity. The public has a right to know this information. I wrote to you months ago calling for this information to be released to the public. There is no danger to American interests from releasing it. And yet, you continue to resist calls to inform the public of this critical information.”
~Sen. Harry Reid, letter to then-FBI Director James Comey, October
Where did you see that?
And where did you get it?
October of which year?
Leave that poor kid alone. He has enough problems considering who his father is.
This Georgia girl thinks Brian Kemp rebuffed Johnson because there been some meddling at his office on voting rolls...
