This ^ must be why he loves and admires Trump so much. Figures if Donald can get away with it, then he can be his true self! ...
Bet ya 2/3 of American voters would trade our lying, incompetent and corrupt Dotard for Trudeau in a heartbeat! ;)
Stop attacking me and address the topic if you have enough brain cells to rub together to do so.

I won't hold my breath.

Lmao... Again with the people who can't address the source so they find the stupidest blog on the Internet to pretend like it's debunked, rather than finding anything false in the article itself.

It is all they have to fallback on. Some lefties claiming something, something, something. Meanwhile the MSM gets caught daily with fake news and they ignore that.

As pointed out previously on another thread and then in this thread a federal judge has agreed with at least several portions of the OP.

Mueller has crashed and burned, and is desperate not to have to testify to Congress. Besides, as he has said at his presser, he will not go beyond the report. Yet the left still clings to Mueller like a toddler to mama.

And you actually seem to believe that... Wow... I am so sorry that your education system failed you so thoroughly.

The only reason I don't have you on ignore is because your positions are the most cartoonish version of leftist delusions, and people see how leftists get confused when words get longer than two syllables and compare with positions I present patiently coping with childish hissy fits, and it's the people passively reading who wind up being convinced.

Get it, you are my tool that I use for my benefit because you lack the ability to recognize how you are your own worst enemy in debate.
Hmmm Who's attacking WHOM? :)

It has never been proven and that is the concern, why the DNC refused to turn over access to its servers to the FBI. And thus the Crowdstrike report is all that there ever has been.



At a May press conference capping his tenure as special counsel, Robert Mueller emphasized what he called "the central allegation" of the two-year Russia probe. The Russian government, Mueller sternly declared, engaged in "multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election, and that allegation deserves the attention of every American." Mueller's comments echoed a January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) asserting with "high confidence" that Russia conducted a sweeping 2016 election influence campaign. "I don't think we've ever encountered a more aggressive or direct campaign to interfere in our election process," then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told a Senate hearing.
...
But a close examination of the report shows that none of those headline assertions are supported by the report’s evidence or other publicly available sources. They are further undercut by investigative shortcomings and the conflicts of interest of key players involved:

    • The report uses qualified and vague language to describe key events, indicating that Mueller and his investigators do not actually know for certain whether Russian intelligence officers stole Democratic Party emails, or how those emails were transferred to WikiLeaks.

    • The report's timeline of events appears to defy logic. According to its narrative, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange announced the publication of Democratic Party emails not only before he received the documents but before he even communicated with the source that provided them.

    • There is strong reason to doubt Mueller’s suggestion that an alleged Russian cutout called Guccifer 2.0 supplied the stolen emails to Assange.

    • Mueller’s decision not to interview Assange – a central figure who claims Russia was not behind the hack – suggests an unwillingness to explore avenues of evidence on fundamental questions.

    • U.S. intelligence officials cannot make definitive conclusions about the hacking of the Democratic National Committee computer servers because they did not analyze those servers themselves. Instead, they relied on the forensics of CrowdStrike, a private contractor for the DNC that was not a neutral party, much as “Russian dossier” compiler Christopher Steele, also a DNC contractor, was not a neutral party. This puts two Democrat-hired contractors squarely behind underlying allegations in the affair – a key circumstance that Mueller ignores.

    • Further, the government allowed CrowdStrike and the Democratic Party's legal counsel to submit redacted records, meaning CrowdStrike and not the government decided what could be revealed or not regarding evidence of hacking.

    • Mueller’s report conspicuously does not allege that the Russian government carried out the social media campaign. Instead it blames, as Mueller said in his closing remarks, "a private Russian entity" known as the Internet Research Agency (IRA).

    • Mueller also falls far short of proving that the Russian social campaign was sophisticated, or even more than minimally related to the 2016 election. As with the collusion and Russian hacking allegations, Democratic officials had a central and overlooked hand in generating the alarm about Russian social media activity.

    • John Brennan, then director of the CIA, played a seminal and overlooked role in all facets of what became Mueller’s investigation: the suspicions that triggered the initial collusion probe; the allegations of Russian interference; and the intelligence assessment that purported to validate the interference allegations that Brennan himself helped generate. Yet Brennan has since revealed himself to be, like CrowdStrike and Steele, hardly a neutral party -- in fact a partisan with a deep animus toward Trump.

What is so strange about it all is the fact the FBI never had access to the computer.

What's sad is how few people even grasp that the FBI via mueller, has been passing hearsay off as proven fact and the delusionals get all huffy when people refuse to accept those delusional conspiracy theories as fact.

I love how you embrace being wrong or lying so easily, I don't even need to debunk what media tells you, you put up the proof that you are clueless or lying open and proud about it.

1 server or a server consisting of multiple boxes, doesn't matter if the FBI did not examine ANY OF IT. As you said, they got to see an "image" of a hard drive.

I don't think you get that the DNC handling of their "hack" was criminal, a few of the same crimes you accuse Trump for baselessly.
Wow tough one.

Who to believe?

A person who believes in nutter theories

Or Politico and Vice news. Or about 5 other sources I could provide

Why Trump's "Where's the server?" is the wrong question


Not a tough call.
