Hillary Clinton comes right out and says that the Russians needed American help to impact election, points to Trump campaign.

Courtesy of NPR:

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton argued Wednesday that Russian meddling in the 2016 election in large part cost her the White House, and said she was "leaning" toward believing that President Trump's campaign did, indeed, collude with the Russians. 

During an interview at Recode's Code Conference, Clinton argued that the Russians "could not have known how best to weaponize" damaging information about her campaign and fake news stories perpetrated on social media unless they had been "guided" by Americans.

At the conference, Clinton said her campaign's assertions that there was Russian meddling had been "basically shooed away." 

" 'There she goes, "vast right-wing conspiracy." ' Now it's a vast Russian conspiracy," she said. "It turned out we were right, and we saw evidence of it."

I think that this is one of the more aggressive statements that Hillary has made about collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign, but it is also one that I wholeheartedly agree with.

Don't forget that Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager, was paid by a Russian billionaire to impact business and politics in a way that would "greatly benefit the Putin government."

Even a blind man could put the pieces together at this point.

And evidence that Hillary is right on the money comes from this knee jerk response from Trump.
It's beyond funny for a man who is currently the subject of numerous investigations to be calling anybody else "crooked."

Hillary's response has already been retweeted over a quarter of a million times.
In a nutshell Trump's campaign clearly worked with the Russians to hijack this election, and therefore the entire Trump presidency is illegitimate, his policies are illegal, and those in his cabinet are guilty by association.

You know the ones whose own ties to Russia have not yet been revealed of course.

    Why doesn't Congress offer $10,000,000 tax free for impeachable information against Donald Trump and criminal evidence that will place Trump and his Anti-American cohorts in Federal Prison

    If such person who comes forward happens to have participated in criminal acts associated with President Trump, they may get a reduced sentence.

    Payment will be given after conviction and imprisonment.

    Franken offers possible explanation for what 'covfefe' means

    (CNN) No one is quite sure what "covfefe" -- the typo issued by President Donald Trump early Wednesday morning that quickly went viral -- means. But Democratic Sen. Al Franken is offering a definition.

    "A 'covfefe' is 'a Yiddish term for 'I gotta go to bed now,' I think," the former "Saturday Night Live" writer told "New Day" anchor Alisyn Camerota, laughing.

    "He got that from Jared, I guess," added Franken, referring to the President's son-in-law, who is an observant Orthodox Jew.

    Americans elected Hillary Clinton for USA President. She won. And she belongs in the oval office today. Trump and his criminals must resign and leave the buildings, he knows it and so does America. He will be impeached and everyone will be charged with treason and espionage. Life in prison for all of them.

      Hillary Clinton would be a far better POTUS than asshole Trump, our supposed potus that does not represent the majority of Americans and is despised around the world.

      The world is laughing at him and he doesn't have a clue!

    Observant Orthodox Jew......I seriously doubt if jared and miss trump practices the orthodox jewish religion. No electric? Don't mix meat and dairy? and so many rules. 10 commandments? Nope, this bunch of frauds don't practice anything but being scum.

    President Obama said:

    A year and a half ago, the world came together in Paris around the first-ever global agreement to set the world on a low-carbon course and protect the world we leave to our children.

    It was steady, principled American leadership on the world stage that made that achievement possible. It was bold American ambition that encouraged dozens of other nations to set their sights higher as well. And what made that leadership and ambition possible was America’s private innovation and public investment in growing industries like wind and solar – industries that created some of the fastest new streams of good-paying jobs in recent years, and contributed to the longest streak of job creation in our history.

    Simply put, the private sector already chose a low-carbon future. And for the nations that committed themselves to that future, the Paris Agreement opened the floodgates for businesses, scientists, and engineers to unleash high-tech, low-carbon investment and innovation on an unprecedented scale.

    The nations that remain in the Paris Agreement will be the nations that reap the benefits in jobs and industries created. I believe the United States of America should be at the front of the pack. But even in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future; I’m confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way, and help protect for future generations the one planet we’ve got.

      FB"1. "China will be allowed to build hundreds of additional coal plants. So, we can't build the plants, but they can, according to this agreement."

      False. Under the Paris agreement, each country publicly declares how much it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and what it will do to get there. In fact, China has actually taken steps to stop building coal plants. China has cut its use of coal three years in a row.

      2. "Even if the Paris Agreement were implemented in full, with total compliance from all nations, it is estimated it would only produce a two-tenths of one degree -- think of that; this much -- Celsius reduction in global temperature by the year 2100. Tiny, tiny amount."

      Misleading. Tackling climate problems depends on taking a series of incremental steps to reduce carbon emissions. Pulling out of the Paris agreement would require even bigger future reductions.

      3. "At 1 percent growth, renewable sources of energy can meet some of our domestic demand. But at 3 or 4 percent growth, which I expect, we need all forms of available American energy, or our country will be at grave risk of brownouts and blackouts."

      Baloney. Economic growth stems from population growth and improvements in productivity. Neither of these factors will drive 3 percent or 4 percent growth in the U.S, regardless.

      4. "India will be allowed to double its coal production by 2020. Think of it. India can double their coal production. We're supposed to get rid of ours."

      Rubbish. The Paris accord doesn’t even mention the word coal, nor does it do anything to put a global moratorium on coal. Each signatory sets its own goals and has to report on its progress. India has committed to reduce emissions 33 to 35 percent of 2005 levels by 2030.

      We have a president who will say anything. Anything.

      Know the facts. Spread the truth.'

    Lawrence O’Donnell confirms he’s remaining at MSNBC after all

    1. Anonymous12:41 PM

      Good news for America. He's one of the best on MSNBC - has a LOT of governmental experience behind him and knows what he is talking about.

      Plus, he detests Trump - the man that does not represent me in the White House!

      I was so happy to see that headline. A smidgen of sanity from today's news.

    3. Anonymous4:22 PM

      Lawrence does not have a LOT of government experience. He was a somewhat clueless Moynihan staffer. Not exactly a giant of the Senate. I'm sure his show is great but he is hardly a towering figure in Senate history.

    OFF-TOPIC: Interior Secretary orders more oil drilling in Alaska.

    -- quote

    With all eyes on President Trump’s announcement to (likely) withdrawal from the Paris Climate accord, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has signed an order to “jump start Alaskan energy”—meaning, in this case, to drill for more oil.

    The order pertains to two places: the National Petroleum Reserve – Alaska (NPR-A), the largest block of federally managed land in the United States, and the coastal region of the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge, the so-called "1002 area.” It calls for a “lawful review and development of a revised Integrated Activity Plan” aimed toward increased petroleum production from these lands, Zinke said in a statement. The move will re-assess the current management plan, and calls for an update to estimates about quantities of oil beneath the ground within three weeks.

      Isn't that what Alaskans voted for? So when the oil companies leave the next time they won't even have a tourist/hunting industries?

    Hillary is also blaming Facebook and the DNC.Not herself. She ran a terrible campaign and was a poor candidate. She needs to go away and stop whining so Democrats can develop a winning agenda and candidates for 2018.
    Before all you Hillary cult members start calling me a troll and to F Off: I am a lifelong Democrat, a woman, and of course I voted for her. But she is not helping anyone, especially herself, with her blame everyone else self-pity routine.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
