    FBI?s Trump-Russia probe knocks White House on its heels - POLITICO

    or

    WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, took the extraordinary step on Monday of announcing that the F.B.I. is investigating whether members of President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

    Mr. Comey’s remarks before the House Intelligence Committee created a treacherous political moment for Mr. Trump, who has insisted that “Russia is fake news” that was cooked up by his political opponents to undermine his presidency. Mr. Comey placed a criminal investigation at the doorstep of the White House and said agents would pursue it “no matter how long that takes.”

    Mr. Comey also dismissed Mr. Trump’s claim that he was wiretapped by his predecessor during the campaign, a sensational but unfounded accusation that has served as a distraction in the public debate over Russian election interference.

    Slapped down today on two accounts.

    Not Normal for a POTUS.

    How did you become such an expert on Star Trek if you don't have a TV?!? I gather that you MUST have had a TV back then.....

    I did. I saw all the episodes - multiple times - before they became available on VHS, much less DVD, NetFlix, &c. I have been without TV service for only 4-1/2 or so years. (I think I also went without it for a couple years in the early 90s.) With VHS, DVD and NetFlix, I have neither need nor desire for TV service, and the family that lives above me (they have the upstairs of a house, I have the downstairs) would not watch TV even if they had one. (My TV functions as my main computer monitor.) When my part-time roommate is here and streams the news, it is incredibly annoying, like it shatters the harmony of a house in which I constantly stream the classical station (currently Der Freischutz: Overture, Opus 77, by Carl Maria von Weber).

    Oh look, MM is LYING AGAIN..

    The White House tweeted Monday that the directors of the FBI and the National Security Agency told Congress Russia did not influence the 2016 presidential election. But to borrow a phrase from the administration’s own parlance, that’s actually fake news. The tweet, which came from the president's official government Twitter account and was sent out by his staff, tries to bolster the claim with a clip from Monday’s high-profile congressional hearing with FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Adm. Michael Rogers.

    If you’re generally predisposed to give the Kremlin a pass, the exchange superficially appears to back Trump’s repeated insistence that Russian interference in the election had no effect on the outcome of the race.

    But Comey and Rogers were actually answering a very specific question — whether or not Russian hackers changed actual vote tallies in the crucial battleground states that decided the election. They were clearly not saying what Trump claims they were.

    Not sure we need the all CAPS at this point. He lies so much that most politicians, in comparison, are on the whole telling the truth.
