Seth Rich conspiracy theory is good because you can tell they are running out of moves. Their noise is becoming less and less effective. Face With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of Joy
But apparently, some site that is 99% garbage might have useful info. Well, Infowars is also 99% garbage, and it's the reason I don't go there.

Oh, and that so-called "new explosive evidence" in the Seth Rich case? If you had been paying attention, it only took a couple of hours to debunk it. And who came forward to do the debunking? The PI dude who actually made the claims...
From the article: "Earlier Tuesday, Brad Bauman, a spokesman for the Rich family, released a statement in which he said the family had "seen no evidence" to suggest Seth Rich had been in contact with Wikileaks."

Brad Bauman a professional Democrat crisis PR consultant. Why did the FBI take his laptop? Why does the family need a spokesperson, especially one from the DNC? Plus wikileaks referencing the story in the past and again given it is in the news. You definitely can agree through that there is a lot of odd behavior around that case.

The media is very quick to dismiss it and label it a conspiracy theory but have they done any investigative journalism to confirm as to why is it to be dismissed? There is more evidence of something not right about that case then there is of Trump and Russia alleged collusion but the media sure loves pushing that narrative and keeping quiet on other potentially anti-DNC stories like their class action lawsuit regarding primary rigging which apparently is legal.

Very cute. Trump is the POTUS he can literally command the WH and republicans in congress to put pressure on this Seth Rich conspiracy. He doenst need wikileaks. Dont blame the media because the alt right propaganda machine is losing its power. The meme got old quick.

And why are you lumping together the DNC rigging lawsuit and this tinfoil hat garbage?. One is REAL the other one is nonsense.

Its over. Its time to face it. Alt Right have reached its peak.

This would all be way better if we weren't so reliant on the US. It really feels like the end of the establishment.

Looking forward to seeing the Senate and House both flip in 2018... the awesome thing is that it'll basically cause the Alt-Right to implode and all of the frogs will start stabbing each other in the back. Will be hilarious to watch!

They still managed to steal a supreme court seat though. Although they may be able to get him tossed since Trump is a lame duck in the last year of his presidency.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

The People's President may not have coined the "prime the pump" but he surety coined the "with great surety".

So, on the Devil's Advocate side of things, if Jim Comey is beyond reproach and chock full of integrity, why did he not act on what is being characterized as "obstruction of justice" immediately after the February 14 meeting where it is alleged that Trump asked Pence and Sessions to leave the Oval Office and he said to Comey what is being reported? Shouldn't he have reported the interaction to someone right away? Should he have resigned? Shouldn't he have done something other than apparently only writing a memo? It will be interesting to hear Comey's response.



Disclaimer: And for those participants here who are only capable of binary thinking, this is not an endorsement of Donald Trump nor a slam of Hillary Clinton.
Because his job was to investigate for possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia. This means a few things:
  1. Trump's current actions in response to the investigation does not directly answer the question, "was there collusion?"
  2. The task is to investigate Trump's campaign, not Trump. Yes he is part of the campaign, but there is still a need to know it was him only, him + other people, or other people only.
  3. Just knowing whether there was collusion or not isn't enough; how it was done, who was involved, and the extent of the collusion (if any) are all relevant concerns too.
  4. For all we know, maybe Trumps behaving like this because he doesn't like being investigated. Or maybe the investigation will dig up some old skeletons that has nothing to do with the campaign or his presidency.

This is what I'm starting to think due to the way he's been reacting to the investigations. I don't think the Russia thing is real because we'd have leaks by now of scandalous stuff if there was anything there. I bet he has a laundry list of illegal stuff he's done in his businesses and digging into his financials is extremely worrying for him. That's why you don't want to be investigated by the FBI or a special prosecutor because you can't be sure of the scope of the investigation.

The Comey memo is odd...

We have Flynn cleared by the FBI Jan 24th prior to the memo's alleged date.
http://nypost.com/2017/01/24/fbi-clears ... to-russia/

Plus Comey testifying under oath that they were never told to stop any investigation. So either Comey is lying or the memo isn't real.

Also:
Another article today: "Trump campaign had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians: sources"
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-t ... SKCN18E106

at the end of the report it mentions that.."The people who described the contacts to Reuters said they had seen no evidence of wrongdoing or collusion between the campaign and Russia in the communications reviewed so far."

Now apparently the intel released by Trump came from Jordan not Israel.

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/05/j ... 15542.html

I imagine next week we'll find that it wasn't even intel it was the vague ramblings of a guy who doesn't actually read intelligence briefings. He probably told the Russians fake info because he doesn't actually bother to know the real stuff.
