  • Former National Security Advisor John Bolton said Putin was "waiting" for Trump to withdraw the US from NATO.
  • He previously warned that Trump would have withdrawn from the alliance if he'd won a 2nd term.
  • Bolton also said Trump's "main interest" in Ukraine was trying to "find Hillary Clinton's computer server."

And yet Trumpers think he saved NATO.
 
John Bolton is a warmonger and mouthpiece for the CIA and MIC.

Nothing this PoS says should ever be confused with truth.
 
ANYTHING which weakens NATO is a good thing in Putins book. We have been very naive, Putin is not a friend to the world's Democracies.

Very informative write up.

Trump was too obsessed with chasing conspiracy theories in regards to Ukraine. Let's not forget the man tried to extort political dirt in return for releasing badly needed military aid.
 
Very good information in the article by Natasha Bertrand validating the Steele dossier. It is clear that Trump made a deal with Putin about Ukraine. Thank you for posting the link, @craig.
Really? The Steele dossier is one BIG lie!

Since BuzzFeed published Steele’s reports in 2017, many of the dossier’s key claims have failed to materialize or have been shown to be false. But this week, it may have been dealt a death blow when the operative used by Steele to gather material for the dossier was indicted.
On Thursday, John Durham, the special counsel appointed to investigate the FBI’s probe into ties between Trump and Russia charged that operative, Igor Danchenko, with lying to the FBI about his work on the dossier and allegedly fabricating some information that appeared in it.

Arrest illustrates how the Steele dossier was a political dirty trick orchestrated by Hillary Clinton​


Special counsel John Durham’s indictment of Igor Danchenko, the principal source for the bogus Steele dossier used by the FBI as a basis for the Trump-Russia investigation, further illustrates that Durham has his sights set on the Clinton campaign.


Danchenko has been charged with five counts of lying to the FBI in interviews during 2017, as the bureau struggled in futility to verify outlandish allegations that Donald Trump and his campaign were clandestine agents of the Kremlin. Those allegations were compiled in the so-called Steele dossier, which the FBI relied on in obtaining surveillance warrants from a secret federal court.



John Durham's most recent indictments prove that the Clinton campaign fabricated the narrative that the Trump campaign colluded to win the 2016 elections. A researcher who contributed key information to the now-debunked Steele dossier was charged with lying to the FBI about it.

Take some time and read John Durham’s most recent indictment's.


And from the Muller report:

Mueller Report, Volume I, page 66, second paragraph:

[In particular,] the investigation examined whether these contacts involved or resulted in coordination or a conspiracy with the
Trump Campaign and Russia, including with respect to Russia providing assistance to the Campaign in exchange for any sort of favorable treatment in the future. Based on the available information, the investigation did not establish such coordination.

John Durham is a whore, and a cheap whore at that.
 
Still believes the big Russian lie?
Poor people being fed the Russian collusion hoax. And some are still eating it?
Russian shells are falling on Ukraine and you still think Putin was Donald Trump's true friend. That is pathetic. Actually he was Trump's friend; he was just America's enemy!

What nonsense?
Why do you believe the Russian collusion hoax? You called special counsel Durham a whore in post #11 why?
What a vile comment to make.
Really pathetic posting!!

The article was "updated" in Nov 2021. But when was it originally published?
Because at this point we know for a fact that:
1. Steele did not have a "well developed" system of agents in Russia in 2016. The main source for Steele was a guy who had been suspected by the FBI as having had been a Russian agent.
2. Nothing was found with respect to activities of Manafort and Russian in relation to a conspiracy.
3. The Ukraine platform change has long been destroyed as myth.

The biggest question of this whole story is that Putin waited until AFTER the guy who he supposedly had a deal was out of office to invade.

Ah yes, the NY Post, owned by News corps, with strong influence from Rupert Murdoch. There is also a wall of responsiblity erected between the CLionton campaign, and the steele doctument, since there was a middle man. So, the NY post is doing fake news. Unsuprising.

The Steele dossier wasn't an independently generated document. It was a product of the Clinton campaign looking in Russia for dirt of Trump.
Did Steele know he was dealing with a suspected Russian agent? Beats me.

Whom your political girlfriend hired for a top level USA position.

Intially, it was financed by the Free Beacon. The Clintion campaign didn't even know about the Steele document, but paid Fusion to investigate Trump as SOP (You can be sure the Trump campaign did the same to Clinton). THere is a wall of distance between the Clinton campaign and Fusion. That is something the Right Wingers conveniently ignore.

Another thing that is ignored is that the Mueller report is not depending on the Steele document for it's conclusions, although it might have used that as guidance to see what can be independently confirmed.

Well, the Mueller report concluded there was no conspiracy and also said they couldn't determine whether the president had obstructed justice.

Trump was of course looking for dirt on Clinton-- they are called the famous Clinton emails-- the 30000 documents that she had on that homebrew server she had put together.
Emails that the DOJ was also looking for.

The dossier was crafted, with the asisstance of a suspected Russian agent, as a political hitpiece on Trump. Hiding behind a buffer doesnt change this.

That of course, is a lie that is told the the right wing.

 
It boggles the mind how those on the right make shit up all the time.
They certainly give the good conservatives a bad name.
