    Crap. Thanks though.

    Umm, given the actions of the senior leadership at the time, 'dragged' is not the verb I would pick. Comey and Co. deliberately took the actions at the time. If a different candidate had won the election, none of this would be seeing the light of day. That is hardly apolitical behavior. This and nsplayer's "told you wouldn't believe me" post illustrates the divide that will never be crossed. Rational people can look at facts and form completely different opinions based upon them depending on their particular tinting of eyeglasses.

    Political considerations should have zero bearing on a criminal investigation. Then or now. Regarding Hillary or Trump. I keep thinking of that blindfolded lady holding the scales. If someone is a crook, then the election be damned. Book 'em, Dan-o...

    So in addition to being unable to remember where I put that opened Ensure, I find myself unable to find where JBSA allows personal conveyance of a firearm as Nellis just did. I could've sworn I read that JBSA, being in Texas and all, treated folks like grown-ups. Big-a@@ sign going through the gate said "Verboten!" Google-fu shows same. Help/link to sanity?

    http://thefederalist.com/2018/02/19/michael-flynns-plea-reversal-uncover-federal-corruption/ On Friday, Judge Emmet Sullivan issued an order in United States v. Flynn that, while widely unnoticed, reveals something fascinating: A motion by Michael Flynn to withdraw his guilty plea based on government misconduct is likely in the works. So, to recap: the Administration in office during the election knew of Russian IO and intentionally did nothing https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/21/us/politics/jeh-johnson-testimony-russian-election-hacking.html Now, the prized scalp taken might have to be stitched back. And the Democrats don't want the result released until after the election (see recap point #1) But #neverTrump or something, I guess...

    Did we give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Or when Bernie Sanders, avowed, acknowledged Socialist came that close to being the Democrat nominee for President?

    "Climate change." {Drink!} Besides that crafty Ivan will just hook the mother of all propane burners to his gas fields and melt the ice that we create by reverting to the Stone Age. Nah, we need a better plan. Consulted the Acme Company yet?

    Both agencies were caught tipping the scales of justice(my opinion is with this options) and/or with the appearance of having done so. And both agencies didn't want that information to go public. Shocked, I tell you. Shocked.

    How very tolerant of you.

    What you just said is made up. The Republican memo was absolutely vetted by the DOJ and FBI. Who both objected strenuously against its release. Unfortunately, their overt political actions regarding Hillary and Trump has tainted their word. Were their objections really based on revealing sources and methods or not wanting their dirty laundry aired in public? Their actions have made that a not quite so clear cut issue. As for the Democrat memo, they, most likely, included really sensitive sources and methods info making it nearly impossible to release by POTUS. Or he could simply be playing politics as well I say release it. Show the Democrats he'll call their bluff. If sensitive information gets blown (sts), so be it.

    "1980 called. It wants its Cold War back." President Barack Obama, 2012 debate Infamous "reset" button with SecState Hillary Clinton to Russian Foreign Minister "I'll have more room to maneuver once I've won re-election." President Obama to President Medvedev And, the winning entry, the Obama Administration knew of the Russian shenanigans but chose not to react because it didn't want to affect the outcome of the 2016 election. Meaning to cast any shadow on a Hillary win. And what, exactly, do any of you propose to thump Vlad and Company? Finally, ditto to the GOP of today. Democrat-lite and toothless when it comes to getting anything done that it promised, campaigned on, and most importantly, to them, raised money from.. Which is I why I wrote and told 'em to pack sand. There is no difference between the parties; we are paying for their livin' large lifestyles. A pox on 'em both.

    It's ok. The NSA will tabs on you based upon a rumor they got from this forum. I'd also be really meticulous with your taxes this year. But we're fine with the many, many classified e-mails you sent to your home server, including SCI and above ones. Worst case, an FBI agent drops by for a little chat. Hope you remember everything you've ever said otherwise you'll be lying to a federal agent. Apparently, some here and in the political world are ok with all of the above. But will clutch their pearls and get the vapors when the current gang in power does shenanigans...

    Did you read the "actions" taken as listed in your posted link? Again, why didn't the Administration in office do something? If Ivan was attempting to disrupt a fundamental issue for our democracy, sanctioning the GRU and FSB seems pretty weak sauce. But it did virtue signal so that counts, I guess. But to recap the important points, for me anyway: the IRS was weaponized against political adversaries; the NSA was weaponized to spy on American citizens for political purposes; the FBI phoned it in investigating a national security issue dealing with one candidate and deceived a court to spy on the opposition candidate. There's more, but these cover the concept. All fun and games until it's done to you.

    As noted above, this is old news. Not unimportant, but not new. BTW, tell me again why the last Administration didn"t do anything about the Russki's and their IO campaign even though they, Administration, admit they knew about said campaign? But I'll see your Russia and raise you the fact that Steele, the former MI6 guy, paid Russian government personnel for their 'information.' Paid Russian personnel for dirt. Sooo, conceivably paid Ivan for his IO campaign.
