    They just didn't catch him until 2015.. In 2009 Trump still had an interest.

    Actually, US intelligence agencies (and foreign intelligence agencies, for that matter) conduct morally dubious operations all the time. Slander, blackmail, assassinations: all standard tools of the trade. You'ld be sweating bullets, too, if the CIA or NSA decided to destroy you.

    I am fascinated how lefties are now champions of the spies and the spooks. Its as if they had no principles whatsoever.

    Actually it was 2012 , his percentage had to do with his name use, his company had zilch to do with the books. Keep picking a scab that isn't there.

    You are correct - so why do you defend the so-called president who says there the Russians didn't meddle in our election? (even tho during the campaign he called on Russia to Hack the DNC - which they did)

    I don't especially defend the Mr. Trump, but I object to misleading information. Trump did not call on Russia to hack the DNC. He asked Russia to release Ms. Clinton's missing emails, which they did not do. And this call was after damaging information about the DNC was already released.

    But I am sure you would be just as happy impeaching Trump based on lies and innuendos as you would be impeaching him on facts, so perhaps my scruples on this matter are of little import to you.

    But to get back to my original point, the CIA has a long history of subverting foreign governments. What makes you think they would hesitate to subvert ours?

    That's funny because I remember when the FBI was following up on investigation regarding Hillary's missing emails and Benghazi everyone was calling that a witch hunt.

    Because there's no evidence to support the claim that the Russian meddled in the US election of 2016

    Quit spreading ^^^^ this lie. Trump never asked Russia to hack anything.. The only quote you will find to back up your claim is in misleading MSM headlines.

    He may be. But its not because he colluded with Russia in the 2016 election as claimed.

    No, he encouraged them to find Hillary's emails that WERE in the past on Hillary's computer in the basement. NOT the DNC' computer. By the time Trump said that, Hillary had already destroyed the server so there was nothing to be hacked.

    It's a lie. I've watch the video of the speech and looked at transcripts. He never asked Russia to hack anything. Show me a quote.You are spreading a lie and now you are doing it willingly instead of by ignorance.

    Because Comey said, in a private meeting, that Trump wasn't under investigation according to Senators Grassley.

    Wrongful collaboration with the Russians is yet to be proved or disproved, but the Dem's pointing the finger at every instance of Trump's contact with Russia is foolhardy.

    Humanity's well-being depends on these superpowers keeping things from spiraling out of control, so you want them at each other's throats instead of communicating on safe and sane terms? A better world future cannot be built on bad habits of the past.

    Aha! This is a new one now? So Trump now called on Russia to hack the DNC?

    Where are these people getting their ideas from. Are they channeling like Clinton and getting them from demons under the guise of Eleanor Roosevelt, or are they just listening to the voices in their heads. One has to wonder.

    Pay no attention to that member. It seems he has to make things up in order to support his weak arguments.
