There are still good old fashioned meetings — meetings with the Russians by members of the Trump Campaign team that have been detailed by the press, detailed in intelligence sent to us by numerous allies, and confirmed in testimony today by former CIA head, John Brennon.

Yes. You should be advised that there is no law against this. And in the US legal system, because a meeting happens, you cannot assume the content of the meeting was nefarious. A judge would throw that out of court in a moment.

That’s not to mention the other ways to hack the election including data washing, social media trolls, Facebook ads and stories, blackmail and financial ties, support of reporters and bloggers (are you a Russian sympathizer Catlin???), automated bots, Taking over sites, shutting down sites….and on and on and on.

Oh. You think advertising amounts to election hacking. :-)

I won’t even get into Russian money laundering….which Trump has already paid a 10 million dollar fine for back in 2015. I’ll let the very current investigation in New York looking at Russian Money Laundering by Trump handle that.

That’s a lie, you know, the way you phrased it.

Trump Taj Mahal was fined 10M for AML violations. The AML regs, which I have some technical familiarity with, are a regulation, obvously. The regulations did not find evidence that Taj Mahal was actually laundering money; they found that they were in violation of reporting regs.

IOW, Trump got fined because his people were shitty accountants. That’s all.

After all, as you conservatives always like say when it comes to all things Russia….when it comes to Seth Rich…”where’s the evidence?”

Well, I suppose based on the current state of the evidence, neither of us have anything actionable, and nothing comes out of either side of the investigation.

I can live with that. Can you?
