      apologies … that link didn’t paste very well did it…

      This is indeed a good question…Why did Cambridge Analytica have HRC’s stolen emails a month before WikiLeaks dumped them online?

        So Assange wasn’t lying after all. He didn’t get the DNC’s stolen emails from Russians.

        It’s looking more than likely he got them from trump’s mafiosi who used Wikileaks as a cut-out to disseminate the emails.

          The BBC is the UK Safe Place for the loony Left. Your article is speculative twaddle.

    Yesterday, trump signed a bit of paper ending the policy that his administration introduced and that he spent days arguing he was powerless to overturn (the lying scum).

    Stephen Colbert quite rightly carves trump a new asshole:

      Stephen Colbert used to be funny, now he’s just a sad-arsed shill. Neither funny, nor entertaining.

        Don’t start Maureen. Even Melania has been pulled in to full-on damage control & was looking very uncomfortable about it in the clip showed on Aljaz tv.

        Melania Trump wears ‘I don’t care’ jacket on way to child detention center
        The first lady appeared to be wearing a Zara jacket with the astonishing caption: ‘I really don’t care. Do U?’

          “It’s not clear whether this jacket is a nod to those concerned that she is being too soft on immigration, or was simply a major wardrobe malfunction.

          It is, however, unusual for Melania Trump to wear inexpensive clothes when on public business. At the G7 summit last year, she wore a floral coat worth $51,000. While arriving back from a trip last June, she was spotted carrying an overnight bag: a Hermès Birkin bag worth $13,500.”

            An utterly tone-deaf “fuck you” to the world.

              Just to the Lefty media, Joe. Oh, that’s right, it is your entire world.

        You’re projecting again, Magic Mushroom Lady.

      This is bad now, because Trump is President…when exactly the same thing happened under Obama…

      • High Flying Duck

        Fake news apparently – unaccompanied minors in those photo’s and some current photo’s in with the old ones.

        No one cares if it was Obama doing it.

      • Blazer

        Obama did it …too!!At least you’re …consistent.

      “Yesterday, trump signed a bit of paper ending the policy that his administration introduced and that he spent days arguing he was powerless to overturn (the lying scum).”

      You really are deluded. He signed a bit of paper than changed nothing at all. If the continue to arrest illegal immigrants, the children must be separated by law and there is nothing Trump can do about that.

        Those (in the first photo) don’t look like children, they are not in cages, there are benches there and they have proper blankets, not foil ones. And they were shown at the time, they’re from Reuters.

    So the real Russian Collusion in the 2016 election was between Obama/his intel services and the Russians:
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/obama-cyber-chief-confirms-stand-order-russian-cyberattacks-summer-2016-204935758.html

    Obama was afraid making Russian moves public would support Trump’s accusations that the election was being rigged.

    • Joe Bloggs

       /  June 22, 2018

      well that’s a creative twist on reality – if you stopped bullshitting for long enough you would have put the context around your comment

      “Obama officials chose another course of action after becoming frustrated that Republican leaders on Capitol Hill would not endorse a bipartisan statement condemning Russian interference and fearful that any unilateral action by them would feed then candidate Donald Trump’s claims that the election was rigged.

      They chose a private “stern” warning by Obama to Russian President Vladimir Putin at a summit in China in early September 2016 to stop his country’s campaign to disrupt the U.S. election.

      Obama officials were also worried that a vigorous cyber response along the lines Daniel had proposed could escalate into a full scale cyber war. And, they have since argued, they believed that the president’s warning had some impact, noting — as Daniel did in his testimony — that they saw some tamping down in Russian probing of state election data systems after Obama’s private talk with Putin.”

      Hardly collusion. And certainly not on the scale of what has been revealed about the trump mafiosi dealings with the Russians. And trump’s election blows a hole wide open in your collusion conspiracy theory – if Obama and the FBI were colluding agsainst trump all they had to do was announce before the election that trump’s team was under investigation for it’s many contacts with Russians.

      It didn’t matter what Obama or his staff did, frothy righties like you would have tried to spin it into interference or collusion by him.

      And that’s exactly what you’re doing now with your frothy, squirrelly “But Obama…”

      • Alan Wilkinson

         /  June 22, 2018

        Any collusion occurred on Obama’s watch, not Trump’s. Suck it up, snowflake.

        • Alan Wilkinson

           /  June 22, 2018

          And it was Obama talking to Putin and trying to help Hillary – not Trump. Obvious and hilarious. Where is Mueller on this aspect?

            And Clinton who left her emails outside of secure systems where they were accessed by foreign entities

    It looks as if that English doctor may have killed off 650+ people ! How did this go on for so long, unchecked ?

    • Gezza

       /  June 22, 2018

      What English doctor?

      • Kitty Catkin

         /  June 23, 2018

    Dr Jane Barton. It hasn’t had much attention in our media.
