I watched an NBC news report where a reporter breathlessly said the relationship between Trump and the intel agencies was so bad that Trump would have to replace the heads of the CIA and DNI.

?? Trump already announced who his nominees were for the CIA and DNI.


BTW, did Buzzfeed say where they got the 35 page document ?

CNN said it was prepared as Trump opposition research for both REP and DEM politicians interested in damaging Trump.

... went to the doc today, for the annual checkup and poke. No worries.

What I did get from the receptionist, the nursing prac. and my doc was :" Are you feeling depressed or scared?".

C'mon doc, what, I asked?

He said so many of the clinic patients, male and female of almost all ages, are expressing fear for the current and future good.

He himself is looking forward to it as he does remember the good things, what life used to be like.

Yes, you guessed it; I live in the blueberry fields and ponds that surround Puget Sound.

As said before, you can thank John McCain for giving this "evidence" to intel agencies.

1. Rep and dem operatives paid some alleged former British intel agent for opposition research on Trump during the primaries.
2. This alleged former intel agent passed along unverified stories from unnamed sources about supposed deviant sexual exploits of Trump while overseas and about Trump operatives meeting with Russkies to coordinate against dems.
3. This 35 page 'dossier' was passed around the establishment media and political figures in DC months ago. (McCain gave a copy to the FBI who supposedly already had the info)
4. All media outlets up until today refused to publish it, because none of it could be verified.
5. CNN was going with a story that a 2 page summary of this information was given to Trump when they briefed him last week. -They did not publish the 35 page dossier or go into any detail about what was in it.
6. The CNN reporters who were going to break this story were formerly BuzzFeed reporters.
7. The BuzzFeed editor did not want to get scooped by his former employees, so he decided to publish the full 35 page document that they had been trying for weeks to verify (and they were as unsuccessful as all the other media outlets have been).
8. Firestorm this morning.
9. Several elements of the document have been conclusively debunked - including the major one which was that Trump's lawyer was supposedly meeting with Russian intel people in Prague. It turns out that his lawyer had not even left the country and has never even been to Prague.
10. NBC has also reported that CNN's story is also false, that Trump was not given a 2 page summary and none of this information was included in the briefing he received last week.

Media is now trying to justify the release of this sleazy, unsubstantiated pile of slop.

I'm getting tired of hearing the Intel services claim their story is based on secret info. Either tell the story so it can be tested or STFU.

The record of relying on secret info, classified, wink, wink, is disquietingly poor.
Bingo! One 'might' rely on the verbal assertions of a group that maintained a measure of credibility, but our 'intelligence' agencies, as a direct result of their own behavior, have squandered much if not all of their credibility at this point. So its time for them to "put up, or shut up".

Daily Mail names the "former operative"

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/new...reign-Secretary.html

Ex-MI6 man Christopher Steele is reported to be the source of a salacious file alleging the Kremlin had compromising evidence about Mr Trump's sex life, that it planned to use to blackmail him.

Mr Steele, 52, is said to be an expert in intelligence analysis and counter-terrorism and sources say he once worked with murdered Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko.

He is now the director of a private security and investigations firm called Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd, run out of plush offices in Belgravia, central London.

The involvement of a former British intelligence officer and ambassador is embarrassing for the Government with Theresa May under pressure to reassure the President-elect that the UK had nothing to do with the 35-page briefing.

The British security services had originally tried to block UK news organisations from naming Mr Steele by issuing a D-notice, which prevents the revelation of certain information for security reasons.

Mr Steele has now fled his home in Surrey, in fear of a backlash from the Kremlin and sources say he is 'terrified for his safety'.

In recent weeks, the former spy declined requests for interviews through an intermediary, who said the subject was 'too hot', reports the Wall Street Journal.

bama,

nice summary few posts above.

another piece of the puzzle is Carter Page who is named as one of the Trump staff who interfaced w Russian officials. Page was mentioned by Trump at the beginning of his campaign as providing inputs. But it appears Page never actually met Trump and was dropped relatively quickly. Trump was furiously trying to put together a team and most Republicans would not be associated w him.

I have been hearing criticism over Trump not answering the media questions.
These fools don't understand. There were 150-200 reporters at the press conference.
Trump answered questions, he just did not entertain any from CNN.
Why do specific news media feel they are so much more important than others?
Looks like they are getting a wake-up call.

Great press conference.

Had this same discussion with someone today.

They claimed "censorship".

I said; "The press was present, and there was nothing "hidden" from "We the People...", therefore, all things that we hold dear, are preserved, the press was present and able to see and report, all that took place.

This is not a case of "everyone gets a turn to win a trophy", it is simply the way things are supposed to work.

No one is guaranteed preeminence, and our Republic is established to be and exist on the edge of anarchy, while being held in check by a fine line of decorum.

And this is the reality of that in as demonstrative an example as can be had.

Has anyone else notice that the Pres Elect seal looks like a "Do Not Enter" sign?

Subliminal messaging?

I loved his press conference and the appointments to his cabinet. That has got to be the most competent and distinguished bunch of people ever.

His detractors had all best shut the fuck up and get on board unless they want to be spending a lot more time with their families.

It's gonna be an interesting year!

Censorship is not when someone refuses to answer a question from an asshole. Censorship is when that asshole keeps interrupting so that person can't talk to anyone else.
