    They agree with what Crowdstrike and no one else said? Strange...

    Rogers agrees Russia tried to influence the election but did not sign off on Brennan's assessment.

    What "hack"? When did the FBI get to examine the allegedly "hacked" server?

    WikiLeaks (remember them? The guys who RELEASED the DAMNING DNC EMAILS?) said they were GIVEN the emails by a DNC operative. Why would Wiki lie about that?

    I think the enormous number of contacts and business dealings between Trump and the Trump team on one hand, and Russians on the other, combined with Trump's very unusual and very conspicuous "worship" of Putin and refusal to criticize or act against what Russia (Putin) is known to have done, needs to be looked into. He appears to be compromised and to have acted to enable Russian interference in the election. Investigation is needed to clear him of any such crimes.

    They agree with the IC assessment about Russia’s role in 2016

    What I wanted from e start is the truth unlike Trump supporters who have been conducting pre-emptive assaults on any investigative processes. Remembetpr I said right from the start that Ttump himself was not likely directly involved in collusion or in connection with Russia.
    I even used the ter "useful idiots" for Trump fans but the PC term is "dupes".

    Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va.: Intelligence community assessment accurately characterized the extent of Russian activities in the 2016 election and its conclusion that Russian intelligence agencies were responsible for the hacking and leaking of information and using misinformation to influence our elections? Simple yes or no would suffice.

    Robert Cardillo, director of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency: I do. Yes, sir.

    Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency: Yes, Senator.

    Adm. Michael Rogers, director of the National Security Agency: Yes I do.

    Coats: Yes I do.

    CIA Director Mike Pompeo: Yes.

    Why are trumps Intel heads saying that then?

    At this point the more the merrier. Since they like State Prosecutors so much - give them to them - like Hell.

    The same Intel community that claimed without Trump giving them an order, they couldn't protect national security. Suppose then, that the President was ailing? What were they going to do then?

    Funny seems like your rejecting a whole lot of truth coming from these investigations.

    I doubt that it would take more than a few months for a competent prosecutor to drain most of the Secret Police/Spy agency swamp.
    Much of the evidence of corruption is now on the public record.
    The OIG report should make it even easier, but I expect the OIG to leave many of the uglier details out.

    "Treason" is a very serious charge yet you're only curious about a possible relationship between Trump and the Russians. There is also no evidence of Donald Trump 'worshipping' Vladimir Putin.

    In fact only one person seems to come close to fitting that description.

    Or perhaps two. https://gop.com/clintons-reckless-reset-7-years-later/

    You don't initiate a Special Counsel with unlimited budgets, time and parameters - and then investigate of only one party- because of 'appearance'.

    If Russia was genuinely involved in the US elections shouldn't all major parties involved in those elections be investigated so as to testify as to what they knew? That would only make sense.

    There has to be some evidence of wrongdoing and there was none. There never was.

    Which is based on Crowdstrike.

    Not according to the report, in fact aspects of the report can’t possible have come from crowdstrike
    In fact they aren’t mentioned at all in the report

    Pre-emptive ... seriously? Sen. Warner specifically, made a lot of media appearances claiming Trumps campaign colluded. The witch hunt, pc term "investigation" was underway for almost a year before FBI misconduct was uncovered, or confirmed more precisely. The truth is that Clinton deleted 33K emails under subpoena. The FBI never tried to find out IF, or HOW Russia acquired them, or WHY they (Hillarys yoga schedule, and grocery list?) were so valuable. The FBI made NO effort to retrieve them either. Instead, the FBI sought to imprison anyone they were offered to.
