    CNN Now reporting that Multiple High Level Campaign aids,including Manafort and Flynn were in near constant touch with senior Russian intelligence throughout the campaign.

    http://edition.cnn.com/2017/02/14/po...ign/index.html


    (CNN)High-level advisers close to then-presidential nominee Donald Trump were in constant communication during the campaign with Russians known to US intelligence, multiple current and former intelligence, law enforcement and administration officials tell CNN.

    President-elect Trump and then-President Barack Obama were both briefed on details of the extensive communications between suspected Russian operatives and people associated with the Trump campaign and the Trump business, according to US officials familiar with the matter.

    Both the frequency of the communications during early summer and the proximity to Trump of those involved "raised a red flag" with US intelligence and law enforcement, according to these officials. The communications were intercepted during routine intelligence collection targeting Russian officials and other Russian nationals known to US intelligence.
    Among several senior Trump advisers regularly communicating with Russian nationals were then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and then-adviser Michael Flynn.
    Officials emphasized that communications between campaign staff and representatives of foreign governments are not unusual. However, these communications stood out to investigators due to the frequency and the level of the Trump advisers involved. Investigators have not reached a judgment on the intent of those conversations.

    So, the article states that these are not unusual and they haven't reached a judgement on the intent of the interactions.

    Is this news?

    "Jon was seen with keys in his hand. This was the seventh time in seven days we've seen him with keys. People who smuggle midgets across the Canadian border often have keys in their hands. Sometimes as many as seven times in a week. We have not seen or heard of any midgets in direct contact with Jon. We have not determined if that's a positive or negative at this juncture"

    considering that the trump administration has been lying, claiming that they had no interactions with Russians in the lead up to the campaign, yeah I'd say it is news. Also this story changed from "Russian government officials" to "Russian Intelligence" so yeah, they were lying about talking to the KGB on a regular cadence throughout the election while the KGB was Hacking the Clinton campaign. Seems pretty newsworthy

    fwiw I've never claimed to not be a midget smuggler

    Let me go back and check to see if you have participated in any midget tranny posts in the past. We will let you know if we uncover any activity.

    They've taken their time - wisely, IMO - but Senate and House leadership calling for investigations into this mess. No guarantee it'll amount to anything but it's a start.

    Trump apparently got out of time-out this morning and was given his phone back. He addressed the scandal with the expected amount of grace and dignity.

    Clinton? Who the hell mentioned Clinton?

    So it's fake news. Of course. I don't think I've ever watched Fox and Friends, so I have no idea how their coverage today differs from everyone else's.

    The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by "intelligence" like candy. Very un-American!
    Wait, so you're not disputing the information? How can the Flynn revelations be totally fake, but also a result of leaked classified intelligence? And the official deflection: "Well we should never have gotten caught -- it's the leaking that is the real problem! Sad!" Seriously?

    It's pretty sad that for literally everything that comes up currently there's an old Trump tweet to show how much of a hypocrite he is.

    Every time we find a Trump administration/campaign link to Russia there's always another one inside. Seems familiar.

    Makes me wonder if the reason the twit-in-chief continues to hide his taxes is related to Russia.
