I don't know why anybody keeps trying to deny this. AFAIK this has been the consistent position of 1kiki, and I Don't recall her ever changing from this stance.
If somebody has proof or example of this being untrue, you could point out the specific post to try to redeem your credibility.

More Evidence: Trump continues to deride Sessions (As a reminder to those who have forgotten, first Trump needs to be rid of Attorney General Sessions, then he can fire Robert Mueller, which would stop the investigation into Trump)

On his third straight day of publicly complaining about Jeff Sessions, President Trump questions why his attorney general has not fired the acting director of the FBI over his wife’s ties to Hillary Clinton.

Why didn't A.G. Sessions replace Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a Comey friend who was in charge of Clinton investigation but got....

Sessions, who has privately told allies that he does not plan to resign, has not addressed the president’s criticism this week. But several Senate Republicans, many of whom had been previously reluctant to break with the president for fear of alienating conservatives loyal to Trump, spoke up on his behalf.

“Sessions is a very loyal man to the president. He stepped in front with him when no senator did,” said Alabama GOP Sen. Richard Shelby. “I think loyalty ought to be a two-way street.”

Tennessee GOP Sen. Bob Corker said: “I wish it would stop.”

South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham framed the president’s efforts to pressure Sessions to resign, instead of firing him, as “a sign of weakness.”

Rush Limbaugh, the influential conservative GOP talk radio host, said this week that “it’s also a little bit discomforting, unseemly, for Trump to go after such a loyal supporter this way.”

When Trump was declared victor I tried to find the bright side by thinking there was an outside chance that President Trump might be The Great Schmoozer. That he'd rub everyone's bellies and make nice and it would be a bright shiny day. Not so much. From his inauguration speech on he has been a fuggin' arse hole to just about everyone. The resentment and irritation with his style of people managing is building against along with everything else. People - his own people - are starting to turn on him. He won't be able to stop that. He can't fire everyone. Unless he changes (hah!) he's toast imho, just a matter of time.

Because he won't carefully think ahead about the consequences of stopping the Russian investigation, Trump is making enemies out of friends: "Many in Russia declared dead any hope for improved relations with Washington under a Trump administration, and there were suggestions that European pique over the proposed measures created an opening for an anti-U.S. alliance."

This is more evidence that Trump knows what the Russian investigation can find about Trump if Robert Mueller is given enough time. So long as Trump can slow the investigation, it is personally worth making the world the enemy of the USA. But it's not what a President would do who cared about more than family business deals.

My point is that transgender people make up about .01% of the population, or thereabouts, and the amount of transgender people that would actually want to join the military would likely be a very small fraction of that. I can't really think of anybody of either "traditional binary sex" that would actually want to join the military today.

This is just another bullshit Leftists talking point full of "feels".

If you want to say something, just say it.

I absolutely HATE government wasteful spending. Pointing out the ridiculous costs of these trips on its own merit (or demerit, as it were) is enough to get my blood boiling. Comparing it to the amount of theoretical medical expenses of the two transgender people in this country who legitimately want to join the military and aren't just starting more shit just trivializes the point.

It automatically tunes out "new" listeners. The only people who get "outraged" by a story like this are the people who have been against Trump since day one. Everybody else just ignores it.

Maybe patriotism? But one provable motivation is money. The Department of Defense has a budget of four hundred nineteen point three billion dollars and more than three million employees. None of them are refusing their paychecks, VA benefits, or pensions. It is better paying than working at Wal-Mart and the Pentagon does indeed compare itself to Wal-Mart, except it is a much bigger employer. www.defense.gov/About/DoD-101/

So, what are Trump’s real motives?
https://qz.com/1039223

One administration official reportedly suggested that it’s part of a strategy for the 2018 midterm elections — a way of shoring up support from blue-collar voters, by boxing Democrats into taking a stance that will be unpopular in places like the midwest.

That is a repeat of the playbook president George W. Bush used in 2004. Having won office as a “compassionate conservative,” his reelection campaign — masterminded by Karl Rove — took a “traditional values” platform including strident opposition to gay marriage.

Most likely it's that they hope to find themselves in the chaos of a live fire battle so they can shoot some white hetero males in the back and say it was an accident. Just a guess.

Srsly, why does anyone join the army? I'm guessing it's for those same reasons.

Point out that Trump had the opportunity to volunteer and the record speaks for itself that he did not. Instead, he bribed a doctor for a medical exemption 1-Y followed by 4-F. He never released the doctor's records from September 1968 or 1972 so we can't know what the hell is wrong with him, but his real medical problem, diarrhea of the mouth, still bothers Trump.

Trump himself doesn't seem to fully remember. In a recent interview with the New York Times, for instance, he said the bone spurs in his heel were "temporary," "minor," and had no real impact on him. Yet he's also said that the bone spurs made it difficult for him to walk "long-term." In other instances, he's declared that he's in perfect health, and his longtime physician stated Trump has had "no significant medical problems" in over 40 years. They both seem to have forgotten that one problem supposedly so detrimental that it kept him from serving in Vietnam.

“Any effort to go after Mueller could be the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency, unless Mueller did something wrong,” Graham added.

If Trump "would fire (Special Counsel Robert) Mueller or have somebody fire Mueller because he doesn't like Mueller or Mueller is doing something" he opposes, "then we become Russia."

Baloney. The neocons, globalists, and deep staters would be after him no matter WHAT he said. Yanno, kind of like you.

The CIA spooks and deep-staters and interventionists are SO UPSET with Trump's cutting off CIA funds to jihadists that they are coming out of the woodwork to attack Trump in public. Like Michael Vickers just did. Michael Vickers was the guy who was in charge of the CIA's secret program to arm and fund jihadists in Afghanistan. And what a clusterfuck that turned out to be, for us.

You've been keeping much closer track - is there anything that rises to the level of evidence?- KIKI

I guess the question is ... Evidence of WHAT?

There is evidence that Flynn was cooking up a very worrisome plot to kidnap Gulen to Turkey and that his company took a $300,000 payment from a Turkish organization. Also, he took a relatively small ($10,000) speaking fee from some Russian organization ... RT, I think it was. The problem was that he didn't disclose the money on some form required for security clearance (I think). Of the two potential foreign conflicts of interest I would be far more worried about Turkey.

Manifort (sp?) represented or lobbied for some Russian-friendly Ukrainian.

There is "evidence" of various contacts between Trump campaign staff and/or administration advisors and Russia, but none of those meetings seem to have crossed the threshold into illegality. They seem to be mostly doing what the Trump campaign/ administration promised: looking for ways to ease tension between the USA and Russia, which is not only not illegal but a good idea, IMHO.

The sheer politicization of everything that went before the campaign ... including the FBI's intentionally botched investigation of anything Hillary, and the DOJ's ultimate refusal to prosecute .... plus the extremely weak to nonexistent evidence of "collusion" with Russia (the FBI didn't even examine the DNC server), and the torrent of leaks and lies about Trump ... should Trump have even the slightest confidence that this is a fair-minded investigation and not a targeted attack?

If it were me, I'd have no confidence whatsoever in Mueller's objectivity.

Signym is again channeling Paul Craig Roberts, but the original Roberts does it best:
“US intelligence services, the Democratic Party, some Republicans including members of President Trump’s own government, and the presstitute US media are conspiring against American democracy and the President of the United States.”
www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/07/24/conspiracy-remove-trump-presidency

Then again Paul Craig Roberts sees conspiracies everywhere. He wraps it all up into a neat package: “Unless Americans become more observant and act upon what they observe, American liberty is doomed.” and follows that by pointing you to “An excellent Russian English language website that will add to your perspective.”

Have no fear! If Trump doesn't fire Mueller and Mueller doesn't find anything on Trump vis-a-vis Russian illegal activities, there are state's prosecutors lining up to file lawsuits against Trump. This will never end with him in the WH.

Based on his history of being Comey's friend, and of his appointee's (Weissman) record of prosecutorial misconduct.

Quote:

In a trial rife with prosecutorial misconduct obviously calculated to win at any cost, Weissmann helped rewrite crucial jury instructions defining the "crime" and the intent required.

Three years later, a unanimous Supreme Court reversed the conviction. All the justices agreed that Andersen's conduct was not a crime, and it was "shocking how little criminal culpability the jury instructions required."

In plain English, Mr. Weissmann concocted a crime, destroyed a company and 85,000 jobs, spent millions of tax dollars, and obtained a wrongful conviction — all for nothing.

The prosecutors were so over-reaching that the judge even allowed Mr. Duncan to withdraw his guilty plea.

Weissmann ran the grand jury like a petty tyrant. He instructed one defendant (my client) — who had appeared voluntarily — to share his "personal understanding" of a telephone call he had not even participated in, "whether his understanding was accurate or not." Then, Weissmann indicted him for perjury and obstruction of justice for his answer.

Determined to "send a message to Wall Street," Weissmann supervised the prosecution of four Merrill Lynch executives on charges that were unprecedented.

Like a character from the TV series The Blacklist, Weissmann himself often made multiple phone calls to lawyers for potential defense witnesses, threatening the indictment of anyone who might testify for the defense — including in-house legal counsel.

To top it off, Weissmann and team actually yellow-highlighted evidence that was favorable to the defense before the Barge trial, but hid it for six years while four Merrill executives served a year in prison on an indictment that failed to allege a crime as charged.

If Lynch and Comey had done their jobs, Hillary would have been under investigation for obstruction of justice at the very least. But because Lynch took the extraordinary step of chatting with Bill for 20 minutes, and Jim took over for Loretta in - in essence- pardoning Hillary and everyone who worked with her on that server, they politicized and publicized the cased. Once he publicly pardoned Hillary, Comey felt compelled to keep everyone in the loop about the latest "Hillary" info.

This is Evidence that Trump has very poor judgment on who he associates with. Trump's new Director of Communications, Tony Scaramucci or The Mooch, communicates with The New Yorker Magazine:

“What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President’s agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people,” he told me.

He cryptically suggested that he had more information about White House aides. “O.K., the Mooch showed up a week ago,” he said. “This is going to get cleaned up very shortly, O.K.? Because I nailed these guys. I’ve got digital fingerprints on everything they’ve done through the F.B.I. and the fucking Department of Justice.”

“What?” I interjected.

“Well, the felony, they’re gonna get prosecuted, probably, for the felony.” He added, “The lie detector starts—” but then he changed the subject and returned to what he thought was the illegal leak of his financial-disclosure forms. I asked if the President knew all of this.

“Well, he doesn’t know the extent of all that, he knows about some of that, but he’ll know about the rest of it first thing tomorrow morning when I see him.”

Scaramucci said he had to get going. “Yeah, let me go, though, because I’ve gotta start tweeting some shit to make this guy crazy.” This guy referred to is Reince Priebus.

After reading what he said to The New Yorker Magazine, The Mooch gave a telephone interview to . . . a TV show! What he said, he says, doesn't mean what it meant when he said it to The New Yorker. It means something nicer, he says. Sure, Mooch. You got in trouble because a journalist wrote down your words.

You've got to be shitting us, right? Mueller, who is famously friends with (fired) Comey, is supposed to be looking at whether the Trump campaign "colluded" with Russia.

Probably? You don't know just guessing? So based on? Today's barometric pressure? - G

Based on his history of being Comey's friend, and of his appointee's (Weissman) record of prosecutorial misconduct.

Quote:

In a trial rife with prosecutorial misconduct obviously calculated to win at any cost, Weissmann helped rewrite crucial jury instructions defining the "crime" and the intent required.

Three years later, a unanimous Supreme Court reversed the conviction. All the justices agreed that Andersen's conduct was not a crime, and it was "shocking how little criminal culpability the jury instructions required."

In plain English, Mr. Weissmann concocted a crime, destroyed a company and 85,000 jobs, spent millions of tax dollars, and obtained a wrongful conviction — all for nothing.

The prosecutors were so over-reaching that the judge even allowed Mr. Duncan to withdraw his guilty plea.

Weissmann ran the grand jury like a petty tyrant. He instructed one defendant (my client) — who had appeared voluntarily — to share his "personal understanding" of a telephone call he had not even participated in, "whether his understanding was accurate or not." Then, Weissmann indicted him for perjury and obstruction of justice for his answer.

Determined to "send a message to Wall Street," Weissmann supervised the prosecution of four Merrill Lynch executives on charges that were unprecedented.

Like a character from the TV series The Blacklist, Weissmann himself often made multiple phone calls to lawyers for potential defense witnesses, threatening the indictment of anyone who might testify for the defense — including in-house legal counsel.

To top it off, Weissmann and team actually yellow-highlighted evidence that was favorable to the defense before the Barge trial, but hid it for six years while four Merrill executives served a year in prison on an indictment that failed to allege a crime as charged.

But because Lynch took the extraordinary step of chatting with Bill for 20 minutes, and Jim took over for Loretta in - in essence- pardoning Hillary and everyone who worked with her on that server, they politicized and publicized the cased. Once he publicly pardoned Hillary, Comey felt compelled to keep everyone in the loop about the latest "Hillary" info.

So Mueller can't be fair because he was a friend of Comey? So, therefore we should get an enemy of Comey? Your logic ship runs aground. There is almost no one in all of this that is more respected on both sides of the aisle than Mueller. You = Phony.

More SIGGY Deep Shit: "Well, since you're so hot to trot to "convict" Trump." I believe I want Mueller to do his best and if Trump is clean I can live with it. Well, live with it better. He'll still be the lyingist sack of fertilizer to ever be president - THAT is undisputed - and not much good will come of him as president.

Still More SIGGY Deep Shit: "And if the DNC keep fomenting sedition in people like you..." F*ck the DNC. Why would I care about what they say? I'm not a registered Dem (didn't you say you were? Irony?). I would never be so naive to register for any party.

When it comes to what Putin sees as a success and as a failure, it’s about money.

Vladimir Putin is reportedly richer than Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos combined. (And he’s never even given a second thought to providing free shipping…)

Bill Browder made the claim before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. He is one of the best authorities on Putin's business dealings.
www.voanews.com/a/terrible-crimes-made-putin-world-richest-person-fina
ncier-tells-senators/3961955.html


Browder cooperated with Putin in anticorruption efforts, but eventually found himself targeted by Putin. That conflict led to the jailing and death of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, and in turn to the Magnitsky Act sanctions against certain Russian oligarchs by the U.S.

According to Browder’s testimony, Putin amassed his vast wealth by using political clout to coerce Russians who made investments to simply hand over large chunks of their holdings to him. Browder claims Putin has a personal interest in reversing the Magnitsky Act, since many of those impacted by it hold Putin’s money for him. According to Browder, that includes some in U.S. institutions that is frozen or at risk of seizure.

If Browder’s claims are accurate, then, Russia’s interference in the U.S. election may have had as much to do with defending Vladimir Putin’s vast personal wealth as with advancing Russian state interests.

Browder testified that when Congress passed the Magnitsky Act, Putin retaliated by imposing a ban on Russian orphans. The goal of the meeting with Trump Jr., Browder said, "was to repeal the Magnitsky Act" and the sanctions that were associated with its imposition. Browder affirmed that talk of adoption was effectively Russian code for lifting the sanctions.

President Trump is now directly implicated in trying to cover up the Russia scandal
By Paul Waldman August 1 at 10:05 AM

If the Russia scandal is nothing but a witch hunt, as President Trump so often says, it’s awfully strange that he’s going to so much trouble to cover it up.

Last night, the latest blockbuster story was written in this scandal, in which the president dictated a misleading statement about the nature of the fateful meeting his son Donald Trump Jr., his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and his then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort had with a group of Russians during the campaign.
www.vox.com/2017/7/31/16073356/donald-trump-jr-russia-statement

This latest story is clearly one of the most significant developments in this scandal to date, for two reasons.

First, it describes an organized effort to mislead the public — not to spin, or minimize the story, or distract from it, or throw out wild accusations about someone else, but to intentionally fool everyone into believing something false.

Second, it implicates the president himself. Indeed, the most extraordinary part of the picture this story paints is that while other people involved were recommending some measure of transparency on the assumption that the truth would come out eventually, they were overruled by the president, who personally dictated the misleading statement.

And it gets worse.

Once the story broke, Trump’s own lawyer went to the media and denied that the president was involved in the drafting of the misleading statement.

In two televised interviews, Jay Sekulow said “the president was not involved in the drafting of the statement,” “The president didn’t sign off on anything,” and “The president wasn’t involved in that.” While it’s theoretically possible that Sekulow would make emphatic statements of fact like those about what his client did or didn’t do without actually asking Trump, that seems almost impossible to believe. Sekulow is a prominent attorney who knows exactly what kind of trouble that could bring, both to himself and his client. So the only reasonable conclusion is that he was repeating what Trump told him.

So, to put this together: The president of the United States personally wrote a statement about this meeting with the Russians, a statement that everyone involved knew to be false. Going further, he then either lied to his own lawyer about his involvement so that the lawyer would repeat that lie publicly (highly likely) or was candid with his lawyer and persuaded him to lie to the media on his behalf (much less likely).

As the OP for this thread, I ask you for this, perhaps as a favor, or to bolster your points.

This thread has devolved into large piles of BS, albeit not as much or as quickly as the other thread.

So I ask if you could supply, like in your OP, with edits, to identify which posts in this thread have valid points, or evidence. Providing post #s, dates, times of the specific posts would be sort of an index, or table of contents, of pertinent entries. If there are none, you could say "no valid presentation of evidence prior to ______ date" or similar.

This thread grows a lot in short time, but the substance posts seem to get buried. And I'd like to find them and refer to them.

Thanks.

It's not evidence but I have more hearsay. It is not about Trump/Russia. It is about Trump's problem solving strategies. Virtually every expert on North Korea agrees that Kim Jong Un is rational: that he wants nuclear weapons not to wipe out an American city, which would clearly lead to retaliation that would decimate the country, but to protect the North from foreign invasion or regime change. That is not how Trump sees North Korea.

Lindsey Graham: Trump “told me” he will bomb North Korea if it keeps testing missiles
www.vox.com/world/2017/8/1/16075198/trump-lindsey-graham-north-korea-w
ar


“If thousands die, they’re going to die over there.”

On Tuesday morning, Sen. Lindsey Graham said that President Trump is willing to go to war with North Korea to stop it from being able to hit the American mainland with a nuclear weapon.

“There is a military option: to destroy North Korea’s nuclear program and North Korea itself,” Graham told the Today show’s Matt Lauer. “He’s not going to allow — President Trump — the ability of this madman [Kim Jong Un] to have a missile that could hit America.

“If there’s going to be a war to stop him, it will be over there,” Graham continued. “If thousands die, they’re going to die over there. They’re not going to die over here — and he’s told me that to my face.”

Graham’s press office confirmed that the senator was, in fact, reciting the details of a conversation he had with the president. According to Graham, the president “doesn’t want a war” — but would be willing to start one that would kill millions of people in the region if it came down to it.

Graham went even further later in the interview, saying war between the United States and North Korea was “inevitable” under this president unless North Korea stops testing intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). These missiles, Graham says, are an unacceptable threat to the American homeland — so Trump would go to war to stop them:

LAUER: Are you saying it’s okay to use a military option that immediately endangers the lives of millions of people in that region?

GRAHAM: I’m saying it’s inevitable unless North Korea changes, because you’re making our president pick between regional stability and homeland security. He’s having to make a choice that no president has wanted to make. They’ve kicked the can down the road for 20 years; there’s nowhere else to kick it. There will be a war with North Korea over their missile program if they continue trying to hit America with an ICBM. He’s told me that, and I believe him.

Now, we don’t know if Graham is accurately conveying what the president said or merely putting words in his mouth. A senior White House official, when asked about Graham’s comments, told me that “all options remain on the table” — but also noted that the administration’s policy right now was to apply “maximum diplomatic and economic pressure to convince North Korea to change course.”

It’s clear from the interview that Graham himself supports military action against North Korea, so it’s possible he’s just trying to position the president on his side of the debate. It’s also possible that he’s just trying to establish a threatening position to increase US leverage in negotiations with North Korea and China, Pyongyang’s patron.

But it’s also possible that Graham is simply telling the truth: that both he and the president are willing to risk a catastrophic war that could threaten the lives of millions of North Koreans, South Koreans, and Japanese — not to mention the 28,500 US troops stationed in South Korea — to head off an as-yet-theoretical threat to the United States.

“This is madness,” Kingston Reif, the director for disarmament and threat reduction policy at the Arms Control Association, tweeted after seeing Graham’s comments. “Unhinged madness.”

I asked 12 legal experts if the latest Trump-Russia news showed obstruction of justice
www.vox.com/2017/8/2/16075404/donald-trump-jr-russia-investigation-mue
ller-obstruction



“A policy of dishonesty within the White House would be an investigative jackpot for Mueller.”

. . .

By itself it's not a crime to lie to the public, though in the past it's something that's come with some political risk. Whether that's still the case is uncertain. Legally, the president's attempt to dictate his son's response may be probative (meaning it constitutes evidence) as to motive in an obstruction of justice case developed by Mueller.

. . .

When we speculate about investigations from afar, we often speak of “smoking guns,” but most trials don’t involve them. Legal claims are usually proven by compiling many incidents and details that together reveal a clear pattern. As [University of Texas Law School] Dean Charles McCormick wrote in 1954, “A brick is not a wall.” On its own, this new item may not prove much, but it’s another brick that could someday be part of a wall that proves obstruction of justice.

This thread has devolved into large piles of BS, albeit not as much or as quickly as the other thread.

So I ask if you could supply, like in your OP, with edits, to identify which posts in this thread have valid points, or evidence.

If there are none, you could say "no valid presentation of evidence prior to ______ date" or similar.

This thread grows a lot in short time, but the substance posts seem to get buried. And I'd like to find them and refer to them.

Thanks.

Okie dokie, I just scanned thru mountains of SECOND's bullshit, lies, and personal attacks; and GSTRING's lies and personal attacks, and the only two points that came up ... and have since been dropped by our fearful contributors, are

1) Jr's meeting with a Russian, which was apparently something of a dry hole. The meeting failed to rise to the level of "collusion" (whatever that was), and

2) Kushner's four meetings with Russians, in which he did not discuss campaign issues and which also fail to rise to the level of "collusion".

Now, one of the pieces of "evidence" (i.e sheer speculation) that SECOND brings forth is that idea that Trump wouldn't have fired Comey UNLESS there was something "Russian" to hide. But the reality is that Comey was acting in a highly politicized manner, as was Loretta Lynch, and Trump was right to fire him. Investigations have been opened on them, too.

And a Special Prosecutor straying far afield from the original suspicion and going on an endless expedition for ANY evidence along ANY lines is not only Unconstitutional (Fourth Amendment violation) it is a pointed political weapon .... as Bill Clinton could tell you.

At this point, even the liberal MSM seems to have backed off the "collusion" narrative. It probably looks to them as being insufficient to their purpose of getting rid of Trump. They have now shifted to the "obstruction" narrative, and if that fails they will shift to the "crazy" narrative. They're not really looking for the truth, they're just looking for any narrative that will stick to the wall that will get them to their desired goal of implementing a soft coup.


*****

In sum, JEWEL, at this point there doesn't seem to be any "there" there, as far as "Russia" is concerned. But just look back at all of the previous "Russia" allegations that have been dropped ... "golden showers" dossier, the mysterious "pinging" to Trump Tower server, and all of the "contacts" between various people which seem to have not produced any campaign-related results, the DNC "hack" (the FBI never did inspect the server) and all of the other activities which have not been supported by any real evidence or produced any indictments ... it all reveals a pattern: Not a pattern of "collusion" with "RUSSIA!" but a pattern of false allegations.

Hopefully the various committees will continue their investigations and find out the truth.

You didn't find evidence, but Congress found enough hearsay to force Trump to quietly sign legislation Wednesday that imposes new limits on his ability to lift sanctions against Russia. Trump said that parts of the measure are unconstitutional but that he was signing it for the "sake of national unity."

Russia accused pipsqueak Trump of 'total weakness' for signing sanctions legislation.
www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-russia-sanctions-20170802-story.htm
l


Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has said new sanctions imposed by the US are tantamount to declaring a "full-scale trade war" against Moscow.

He said the measures, signed by Donald Trump, demonstrated the complete impotence of the US president, whom he said had been humiliated by Congress.

Senior Russian parliamentarian Konstantin Kosachev said that Mr Trump was "capitulating" by not standing up to Congress.

Mr Medvedev warned that new steps would follow aimed at removing President Trump - whom he described as a "non-systemic player" - from power. I would have used “confused, ill-informed player”, but whatever.

White House Says Russia’s Hackers Are Too Good to Be Caught but NSA Partner Called Them “Morons”

https://theintercept.com/2017/08/02/white-house-says-russias-hackers-a
re-too-good-to-be-caught-but-nsa-partner-called-them-morons
/

The hackers behind the dump of Democratic Party emails in the midst of last year’s presidential race left apparent evidence of their identity — a breadcrumb trail winding from the stolen files back to the Russian government, according to assessments from the U.S. intelligence community. Some of this evidence was there from the beginning, embedded inside the first documents to hit the web, raising a niggling question: Why would diabolically skilled Russian operatives operate so sloppily?

This question has persisted, and last week the White House seized upon it, promulgating the idea that if the Russian government were really behind the attacks, its online agents wouldn’t have left any fingerprints. Russia quickly repeated this claim through its UK embassy.

But a 2011 presentation to the NSA and its foreign partners by Canada’s signals intelligence agency, the Communications Security Establishment, undermines the notion of a foreign hacker so skilled that a victim would never know their identity. The document calls Russian hackers “morons” for routinely compromising the security of a “really well designed” system intended to cover their tracks; for example, the hackers logged into their personal social and email accounts through the same anonymizing system used to attack their targets, comparable to getting an anonymous burner phone for illicit use and then placing calls to your girlfriend, parents, and roommate.

The competence of Russian hackers became a prominent issue once more last Sunday, when the president’s communications director Anthony Scaramucci — since removed from his post but quoting the president directly — said the following to Jake Tapper on CNN:

“Somebody said to me yesterday, uh, I won’t tell you who, that if the Russians actually hacked this situation and actually spilled out those emails, you would have never seen it, you would have never had any evidence of them, meaning they’re super confident in their deception skills and hacking.”

Seconds later, Scaramucci revealed his anonymous technical source on the matter to have been Donald Trump himself.

It’s one thing to question circumstantial evidence based on the expectation that Russian agents are too competent to leave such clues behind. But ruling out Russia on the basis of unforced errors alone flies in the face of the intelligence community’s experience with online operators from that country.

Yes, and the FBI knows this .... how??? Because they didn't even get to examine the DNC server.

You DO realize that recently files were offered online (dark web) which were the NSA's hacking toolkit, and among other things it exposed software which can change the "fingerprint" of a file to anyone you want it to be. Russian, Chinese, N Korean, Iranian, Mexican ... it's all available.

There is a report - yes, I know- based on anonymous sources - which have examined the GUCCIFER files.

There is ONE category of evidence that indicates that the files were copied by someone physically at the server, NOT TRANSFERED OVER THE INET, and that is the timestamps associated with each file creation. Because the speed of file creation far exceeds the technical capacity (bandwidth) of the internet. The files apparently were copied by someone physically present onto a flash drive (thumb drive) or external hard drive, not remotely from a distance.

Congress is dumber than you. And YOU'RE a dummy for trusting Congress to be smart. So it's an endless loop of dumminess.

Signym, you want evidence before you decide the Russian government's guilt or innocence. But no one will explain the evidence to you because it makes no difference what you decide. On the other hand, Trump has already decided and nobody can change his mind:

https://theintercept.com/2017/08/02/white-house-says-russias-hackers-a
re-too-good-to-be-caught-but-nsa-partner-called-them-morons
/

All of this is to say that the commander-in-chief, privy to the full corpus of intelligence findings provided by the NSA and its allies in the “Five Eyes” intelligence-sharing alliance, including Canada, didn’t know what he was talking about.

This isn’t new: One need only look back to the presidential debate wherein Trump famously remarked that the DNC perpetrator could be a bedridden “400-pound” hacker to know that he hasn’t ever taken this seriously.

It’s also possible, given how fantastically impressionable Trump is, that the Too Good to Fail theory is based on something he heard recently — perhaps from Vladimir Putin himself, who in June speculated that the DNC hacker could’ve easily covered their tracks.

No matter what, if Trump had any desire to actually know how sophisticated Russian state hackers are or have been in the past, the evidence is there for him to review.

No one CAN explain the evidence to me BECAUSE THERE IS NONE.

The FBI hasn't even examined the DNC server. On what grounds can they POSSIBLY know what happened?

As I have linked to experts before (on NPR, even!) who explain that "attribution" is extremely difficult. There is CLEARLY NSA software which can masquerade one source for another; it's splattered all over the dark net and impossible to deny.

But it sure didn't help that the DNC refused to make the server available for examination, and the FBI went along this this because ....??

Unless you can examine the server log timestamps (eg look at the date and rate of file xfer) or you can examine the copied files for the same thing, or look at other physical attributes of the files, or examine badge access records (assuming there were badged locks in place) YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO PRODUCE EVIDENCE THAT'S ANY BETTER THAN TOILET PAPER. Unless Julian Assange reveals the source, or the source comes forward him/herself, or a "smoking gun" emerges from the depths of the security state which admits to a false flag, it's entirely possible that we will NEVER know accessed the files.

That bears repetition: It's entirely possible that we will NEVER know accessed the files.

That's the nature of computer hacking, SECOND. Of all of the possible crimes and misdeed to commit, this leaves the least evidence for examination. It could have been anyone, literally. No evidence has emerged which either rules in/out any suspect, especially not even the CIA or NSA itself.
