Russians responsible for #releasethememo

Quote:


Releasethememo" is now the top trending hashtag among Russian bots and trolls on Twitter and other platforms, according to the German Marshall Fund's "Hamilton 68" website, which tracks Russian influence campaigns.

And now suddenly it is no longer trending on Twitter.


Damn clever russians. How do they keep doing this stuff?

Why should anyone believe this "Hamilton 68" crowd? And if it is so easy to track why did it take so long to investigate the Russian 2016 allegations of Twitter and Facebook et al?

Sab, you're too damned sure of yourself. There's no way you can know whether Russian provocateurs aren't behind this, yet you are sure they aren't.

Of course, whether they are or whether they aren't, the meat here is the memo itself, and for a fact Russia Today is covering the story, even quoting Ron Paul.

The question is: Why did Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee vote to allow the "memo" to be seen by Congress members, but deny its release to the public?

Why were Congress members required lawmakers had to sign a waiver pledging that they may not obtain copies of the memo, prohibiting them from taking notes, and barring them from discussing the contents of the memo? All this over alleged wiretapping of some goings on in Trump Tower.

What's so damned top secret? Better yet, what was going on? And why does RT "feel obligated" to cover the activities of the House Intelligence Committee regarding "the memo?"

And better yet, why are you, once again, taking the position that whatever it is, suspecting Russian involvement is ... ridiculous?
Thanks from Camelot

So what happens if Obama did abuse the NSA's surveillance, but at the same time discovered truly illegal activity going on in the Trump camp ?? Is it possible the Republicans DON'T want it released ??

Well for one. US citizens have rights. If a search is done of a drug dealers house with no warrant, then the case is thrown out. So if Obama's minions used knowingly false info to obtain a warrant it is the same thing.

Guilt or no guilt it should be thrown out.
Thanks from Jimgorn

OK so it would never make it into a court of law, but what would it do to Trump's presidency ??

Lets work with you premise that Obama played an illegally obtained FISA warrant and the FBI is in the throws of discovering some Trump administration illegality.
The Obama illegality discovery would need to precipitate an immediate ending of the investigation. We do not continue with illegal investigations.
