The Kim dynasty spends decades making progress to becoming a nuclear power and all of a sudden they're all for denuclearisation?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Trumps got a pee-tape of Kim, it's the only logical answer.

They've spent all this money solely so they can come and eat at the big boys table.

They arn't planning on doing more weapons research. My guess is they're going to try and sit on what they've got and force a reduction in sanctions against their country.

I would imagine that that may be a significant development, but I don't understand why or how. I expect some law talkin guy will figure it out.

This might turn out to be a biggie. Felix Sater, bit of a dodgy character from Trump's orbit has been on the FBI payroll for years.

It'd better come back to bite him, because nothing else seems to have. :x

I unfollowed Abramson today. His twitter rants have morphed from interesting opinion pieces into conspiracy theorist rants based on biased sources and conjecture.

House Republicans say no evidence of collusion as they end Russia probe

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee announced Monday they found no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia and that they are shutting down their yearlong investigation.

The committee's Republicans are also disagreeing with the intelligence community's assessment that Russian President Vladimir Putin was trying to help the Trump campaign over Hillary Clinton, a notion that aligns with President Donald Trump's viewpoint on election meddling.

The conclusions will be met with sharp disagreement from Democrats and are bound to inflame partisan tensions on a committee that's been beleaguered by partisanship throughout the course of its Russia probe.

Rep. Mike Conaway, the Texas Republican leading the Russia investigation, said Monday that the committee had concluded its interviews for the Russia investigation, and the Republican staff had prepared a 150-page draft report that they would give to Democrats to review on Tuesday morning.

"We found no evidence of collusion, and so we found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings," Conaway said. "We found no evidence of any collusion of anything people were actually doing, other than taking a meeting they shouldn't have taken or just inadvertently being in the same building."

Democrats say there are still scores of witnesses the committee should call, and argue that Republicans have failed to use subpoenas to obtain documents and require witnesses to answer questions that are central to the investigation.

Conaway told reporters that he feels the committee has investigated all avenues it needed to probe, and he argued that the panel would not have been able to obtain the information Democrats were seeking had they gone the route of subpoenaing witnesses or trying to hold them in contempt.

Conaway, for instance, said the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between senior campaign officials and a Russian lawyer where dirt on Clinton was promised was "ill advised." But he said that the committee did not turn up any evidence of collusion, arguing the promoter who organized the meeting had exaggerated what the Russians would provide.

The committee's report will conclude that they agree with 98% of the intelligence community's January 2017 assessment that Russia meddled in the 2016 election, according to a committee aide.

But the panel's Republicans take issue with the key finding that Putin was trying get Trump elected. Conaway said it was clear the Russians were trying to sow discord in the 2016 US election, but Republicans did not establish the same conclusions as the CIA that they specifically were trying to help Trump.

What a complete farce that was :lol:

Only investigation that matters is the FBI's.

Odd response. The point of my post was to highlight the fact that the guy now posts any and all Trump theories no matter how conspiratorial. It wasn't suggesting I unfollowed him as a punitive measure.

I don't see Seth Abramson that way. I am not saying he's going to be proven right on every single thread, but he's basing his theories on newspaper reports, not so called inside sources. The stories may be off base of course, but until Mueller does his thing, I think Seth is not a bad place for keeping up to date, especially when obscure names appear in particular stories.

That said, I'm not on twitter, so I only read his stuff when I want to. I don't have to worry about hundreds of notifications when he's on his latest posting frenzy.

He frames every story as'This is HUGE. This is what will bring down Trump!' even if that's specifically not the case. He's gotten so overblown that I stopped caring about anything he posted.

All these stories become white noise after a while, there's so much gooseberry fool flying about that it's hard to focus on each turd, they all smell the same and leave the same mark on the wall, but now I've totally lost my train of thought with this crappy metaphor.

That's because it was a gooseberry fool metaphor.
