Default Trump casts doubt on Russian election meddling ahead of Putin summit

"Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!" Trump wrote on Twitter Thursday morning. He went on to question why US law enforcement agencies weren't investigating other perceived influences on the election, which he has repeatedly said was rigged for his opponent Hillary Clinton.

The President's tweet was sent roughly a half hour before the White House announced the two leaders will meet on July 16 in Helsinki, Finland, where they will "discuss relations between the United States and Russia and a range of national security issues."

I cannot believe we are doing this. Absolutely astounding.

Before the election Trump suggested that he might not accept the results if the process was shown to be corrupt. Democrats confident Hillary would win shrieked about undermining democracy etc. despite the evidence Hillary had rigged the Democrat primary.

After the election Democrats hatched a conspiracy theory that Trump only won because of Russian interference and Trump along with his campaign were willing conspirators with the plot. Obama dead enders in the intelligence community and justice department culminated against Trump like the Soviet era KGB, partisan political weapons posing as defenders of the Republic.

According to the OP here is the actual tweet from Trump.

Quote:
Where is the DNC Server, and why didn't Shady James Comey and the now disgraced FBI agents take and closely examine it? Why isn't Hillary/Russia being looked at? So many questions, so much corruption!" he wrote.
Indeed, the Obama FBI didn't insist on examining the DNC server instead they accepted the carefully filtered and cultivated information spoon fed by the same Democrat hired consultants responsible for the failed server security.

But never mind that senior FBI agents were engaged in KGB style tactics to undermine the election with hearsay "evidence" under Obama. The real threat is Trump pointing out their corruption.

Given the number of nations we historically have, and are still, trying to alter the elections, and or, leadership, we have no grounds on which to piously stand and complain or point a finger.

Oh yes, By God we can stand and piously point at Putin who only recently fixed his own damned election.
Putin who killed an English citizen this year. Putin who has assassinated friends and foes alike in the last few years.
Yes. We certainly are not in the same league as that bastard.

Oh sure, you think its true when Putin has someone killed, But when people are murdered before they are going to testify against the Clinton Cartel, you say that is a lie.

And you are forever stuck on this notion that now the party that is closet to Conservatism, is in bed with the Communists, who would be more ideologically aligned with the Democratic party. Yeah, that makes sense.

Why do Democrats keep saying the election was hacked? The election was not hacked. The DNC campaign was hacked. The election was not hacked or affected.

The left is trying to get Trump to say the ELECTION was hacked, when it wasn't.

If they can get him to say that the Russians hacked our "election" they will say that is proof he didn't really win.

This is all about words.

THIS!

This whole Russia meddling thing has nothing to do with anything other than to de-legitimize the Trump administration. I honestly believe that if they can get that accomplished and they can win the House in the mid-terms, they believe they will have the political capital to Impeach Trump and then get enough Republicans in the Senate, to vote to remove him from office. If the Republicans can hold the House, then the campaign to deligitimize Trump will just carry on until 2020 where they can attack him there to prevent a 2nd term.

What they are not counting on is those of us in middle America that are sick of the whining and crying over the last election, and see their tactics for what they are. While I would have a hard time voting for a Democrat at the Federal level, the more they carry on with this nonsense and with the silence of more moderate Democrats, I will find it almost impossible to vote for ANYONE with a D next to their name in the future. And I know quite a few others that see it the same way; and some of them voted for Obama, TWICE!

The Democratic party is quickly pushing moderates aside in favor of a far left agenda and ideology. This will turn off many independents and moderates to the point where they could damage the DNC for years. I hope they continue down this road until they loose every race they enter.

However, the bad news is that it could lead to moderate Dems flipping to the Republican party and taking that party future to the left also. Conservatives need to become more active in the Republican party and work to move it back to Conservative values.
