    How many hacking and propaganda campaigns to influence elections in other countries has the United States government directly been involved in? Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

          Bad examples. You know that the US only got involved in Viet Nam AFTER North Viet Nam began violating human rights. As for Nicaragua and Haiti, get your facts straight. That mess belongs to your Republican President GHWB.

          Russia and Serbia? Do you always make such an ass of yourself? There are more than 3 dozen journalists killed by Putin. As for Serbia, again…violations to human rights and that was begun in GWB’s presidency.

    There is no Russian scandal or affair, just more fake news from the liberal media like Newsweek. It takes a lot of gull to call yourself “newsweek” when you only publish fake news and distort what conservatives say and do. The name of this rag should be weekly reports from the DNC.

      So tell me which of these events didn’t happen. Which statement is false? Just what makes this fake news, the fact that it makes Trump look bad? I’m sorry but the actions of the Trump White House makes Trump look bad and blaming the people who shine the light on it only proves the truth of their stand. here are the facts in short, Flynn spoke out of turn to the Russian. Flynn lied about it to the VP. Flynn should have known the call was recorded. Flynn was outed but it wasn’t till it hit the press that Trump did anything. Trump supported the action that started the whole thing which means either he didn’t understand the rules or didn’t care if they were broken. Do you object to the fact that Newsweek summed it all up nicely.

        Like I said it not a affair or scandal. Flynn was not a member of the Trump staff when he talked to Russia. Flynn got fired for lying to the V.P. Flynn did not break any laws. fake news. Nothing illegal was done.

          Where did it say he broke any laws? Had he broken a law he would most likely be in jail instead of be fired. Had he not lied he might have gotten away with it. Also Flynn was on Trumps transition team. He had official standing. so I ask you once again just what in this article is not true? Flynn talked out of turn with the Russians and then lied about it. Trump learned of the lie but did nothing until it came out in the press.

            He lied to the VP who then gave out false information. All the facts are true in the story. so it’s real news not fake news. I don’t know why Hillary has anything to do with this story. Flynn lied. he got caught and fired, that’s the story. Nothing fake about it.

          Again you lie. Flynn WAS a member of Trump’s campaign committee and therefore a member of the Trump staff. Are you unable to accept what we all saw? Flynn standing at a microphone in October 2015 encouraging dipshit Trump supporters to chant, “Lock her up!” He chanted that right along with them. So..who gets locked up now Itsy?

            The United States had a very active nazi group. In 1941, they went underground. Some came out under different names. The neo nazi groups are not neo (new) they are the same old – same old. They bring their hate to these sites. The only response I would have to a nazi is to spit on them if I saw one in person.

        Having some knowledge of European matters, I can confirm your account of this. In Germany, Putin’s trolls last year invented the rape by “migrants” of a 13-year-old German-Russian girl in order to stoke up anti-government resentment especially among some three million ethnic Germans who have immigrated from Russia in the past few decades. Quite a few of them have since stubbornly refused to accept that this was “fake news” invented by a pro-Kremlin agency and intended to help destabilize Germany. In France, there are two candidates for the upcoming presidential election who are believed to be fiercely (right-wing extremist Marine Le Pen) or mildly (conservative candidate Francois Fillon) pro-Putin. When it turned out that Fillon, the ‘socially more acceptable’ candidate, was implicated in irregularities involving state payments to his wife, Putin’s trolls started taking aim at Mr. Macron, a young pro-business Social Democrat who until then had been lagging behind in the polls, for fear he might gather the vote that Fillion seemed about to lose. The trolls have been accusing Macron of all sorts of sexual deviousness and other unsubstantiated evils, obviously in the hope that this might contribute to Le Pen’s victory in the end. These are only two blatant instances of Putin’s influence-mongering in Western Europe. I’m sure you can find lots more if you look at these things more closely. One important element of Putin’s strategy: making his trolls incessantly claim all over the place that Europe is “in a mess”, which of course it is not — a claim, however, that Trump likes to repeat as much as he can. In fact, Europe has so far dealt pretty heroically with all sorts of problems.

    There already is a video of Trump admitting he has done business with Russia. Are we to believe it’s possible to conduct business without the surveillance of the Russian government.

    We know what this cover up is all about. Trump had a lot of unsavory and dangerous liaisons with Putin. These two men are kindred spirits when it comes to power. Are we to believe Trump didn’t know Putin was hot to make Russia a No. 1 world power by weakening governments in Europe and the US?

    Let the games begin. When Trump aligned himself with Russia in business, there is no way NOW to extricate his alliance with Putin.

    Trump’s Russian affair is troubling for him because a thorough and fair investigation would reveal business deals that would not only be unethical, but a violation of the emolument clause. Lifting the sanctions imposed by President Obama after it became clear that Russia had interfered in the 2016 election, after Mike Flynn’s conversation with the Russian Ambassador became public, may cause irreparable damage to Trump’s presidency, and may constitute a crime or misdemeanor that would warrant impeachment.

    One of Putin’s FAKE NEWS media according to WikiPedia: “Sputnik (pronounced spʊtnɪk) is a news agency, news websites and radio broadcast service established by the Russian government-controlled news agency Rossiya Segodnya.[2] Headquartered in Moscow, Sputnik has regional editorial offices in Washington, Cairo, Beijing, London and Edinburgh. It focuses on global politics and economics and is geared entirely towards a non-Russian audience.[3] Sputnik has been widely accused of bias, disinformation[4] and being a Russian propaganda outlet.”

    What is it about right wing HATERS that lying is all they do best? They love dumping the cost of THEIR healthcare on the rest of us, using our tax dollars to keep their Republican hick politicians in big corporate money and then to make matters worse they rig elections.

    This is not over and they know it. There is no WAY any American is going to allow a bunch of Confederate relics to smear and dirty our elections or our Constitution.

    Even if we pretended the Russians NEVER hacked into the election data, Trump didn’t pad the cabinet with political patronage jobs and lies so often we can keep a database full of his public lies that embarrass the hell out of our country, how is allowing him to make all of these Trillions in profit by wheeling and dealing corporate deals going to reduce the national debt? Zero out the national deficit? Make college and healthcare more affordable?

    When you think about it. These corporate hots like Tillerson making all those trillions in profit are now public servants and as such cannot be allowed to keep one dime of these deals since it now belongs to the US government. Or, are they using the US government to make deals for personal gain as public servants?

    OK lets just go a little deeper into this Jewish thing DONNY DUMPS daughter he wants to bang (and good bet he did already ) the DUMPSTER say she is Jewish . ohh really now ? is she Jewish or just went and did the conversion into Judaism ? and she did this because her hubby that is worth so much money with what he owns that the DUMPSTERT made her set into another type of scam ? just in case he dies or gets killed when the DUMPSTER sends him to dangerous places ( hoping he dose get killed . all in the greedy dirt bag DONNY DUMPS evil always plan ) some how the DUMPSTER had his daughter /wife or banging piece of rear marry the rich Jewish guy on a just in case plan . so im I right that his hole daughter isn’t Jewish at all just converted to Judaism ? so then that would be more lies right ? she not a true Jewish person just a Judaism faith . and its for a chance for her if he dies hubby’s money so she can give it to her good little nasty daddy

    We can be sure that Trump directed Flynn to contact the ambassador. A 30+ year military man would not have done so, unless following orders.

    Impeach Trump – and confine him to Gitmo!
