Carter Page: I Never Called Myself a Trump Adviser

121

At the center of the brouhaha supposedly connecting Donald Trump to Russian interests is a businessman named Carter Page, who we have been told was a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign. Leaks from inside the intelligence community indicate that it was Page’s trip to Moscow last summer that inspired the FBI to seek a FISA warrant and conclude that Page was likely working as an agent for the Russian government.

With the heat coming down last December, the Trump transition team sent a cease and desist letter to Page, asking him to stop claiming to be a campaign insider. On December 22, Trump’s attorney, Don McGhan wrote to Page, saying, “You never met Mr. Trump, nor did you ever ‘advise’ Mr. Trump about anything. You are thus not an ‘adviser’ to Mr. Trump in any sense of the word.”

Fox News obtained the letter to Page as well as Page’s response, which was sent back to the transition team the next day. In his response, Page said that he never claimed to be one of Trump’s advisers. To the contrary, he said it was the Clinton campaign and the mainstream media that made his relationship to the Trump campaign out to be something it wasn’t.

“Thank you for your letter…and the opportunity to address the false impression that I may in some way be holding myself out as an ‘adviser’ to Mr. Trump,” Page wrote, according to Fox. “I believe this extremely false perception might be based on frequent and continued mischaracterizations in the mainstream media. The media narrative is completely outside of my personal control despite constant and intensive efforts by me.”

Page’s name first surfaced as a member of the Trump campaign team last spring when the candidate himself named him as one of his foreign policy advisers in a TV interview. According to sources within the campaign, however, Trump merely picked Page’s name from a list of foreign policy experts…perhaps for no better reason than the fact that he had a doctorate. In reality, however, all parties involved – Trump, his campaign team, and Page himself – say the two never met.

Is it possible that this interview formed the entire basis for the FBI’s investigation into Trump’s so-called “collusion” with the Russian government? If he’d chosen another name from that list, would we be talking about something else today? We’d hope that the FBI and the rest of the intelligence community would need something more substantial upon which to base their inquiries, but then again, they did appear to put a lot of stock in that ridiculous “dossier” that was bought and paid for by Trump’s political opponents, so anything’s possible.

    It doesn’t matter whether or not you called yourself a Trump advisor. The Mainstream, Fake Liberal Media did – therefor you must be guilty!!!! It is known as “LL” as in Liberal Logic. It is the same logic they apply when referring to immigrant control advocates as racists.

    1. Morton99 says

      Are you suggesting that Mr Trump is a liberal – because it was he who named Carter as an adviser and there are plenty of television clips to prove it.

      1. Mathew Molk says

        fos

        1. Mike says

          no that is a fact. the vile enemy of the trump sheeple.

          1. Tired... says

            The fact is that Morton99’s objection is irrelevant if the article is accurate:

            “Page’s name first surfaced as a member of the Trump campaign team last spring when the candidate himself named him as one of his foreign policy advisers in a TV interview. According to sources within the campaign, however, Trump merely picked Page’s name from a list of foreign policy experts…perhaps for no better reason than the fact that he had a doctorate.

          2. Morton99 says

            ‘According to sources’ yes I read that too. But that is what the spin merchants say when someone’s name becomes troublesome.

          3. Tired... says

            It is also what they say when they don’t want to reveal their source.

          4. James Langham says

            It’s just them outright lying.

          5. gets2say says

            and the rest is what the “Spin Creative Writers” say when they don’t know how to find actual news.

          6. TheSkalawag929 says

            Page also claimed to have not met Sergey Kislyak the Russian Ambassador before saying, “I’m not going to deny that I talked to him.”
            It is interesting the lack of curiosity exhibited by republicans into the direct connections of so many of those in the Trump “administration” (not sure who is in it or not) to Russians with close ties to Putin and his government compared to the zeal with which they attacked Hilary over the most tenuous of connections to anything that could be considered scandalous.
            And it’s curious how there have been no investigations demanded into the botched Yemen raid or the appearance of Trump personally profiting from the office of President. Which, I’m not sure, I think is unconstitutional.

          7. Roger says

            TALKING with him (on a telephone, etc.) is VERY DIFFERENT than MEETING with him, you A$$HOLE, eh ?

          8. TheSkalawag929 says

            So in your world does that mean you can’t be used by the Russians if you don’t meet with them face to face?

          11. Tired... says

            I am not against investigating anything that is unconstitutional, but your argument is not compelling. If we look at the individuals in the Obama Administration who had ties to various nations and organizations and compare them to a those in the Trump administration, I suspect that you will find that they look very much alike (although the names of the organizations and countries may vary). In addition, I am not sure what the word “close ties” actually means in the context of foreign relations versus the collusion alleged by some. You seem to use the phrase as if it is proof of wrongdoing, but that assumption seems like a stretch to me.

            Benghazi was a fiasco that cost American lives and should have been investigated. Accountability was needed due to the delayed response as well as the discrepancy between the official and unofficial stories that were presented by the White House. In that case Hillary’s words as well as her actions were her own worst enemy.

            The military did do an investigation into Yemen and determined that there wasn’t a need for further inquiry. What exactly do you see in the evidence that suggests that an investigation by Congress is warranted? Additionally, it would be helpful if you provided evidence of Trump profiting from the office of President rather than just allegations.

          12. AKLady says

            One huge difference: Obama was never charged with an illegal action.
            New York State and New Jersey both charged and fined Trump with money laundering. New York also closed Trump University as illegal and unlicensed, calling it a money laundering scheme.

          13. TheSkalawag929 says

            ” If we look at the individuals in the Obama Administration …”
            I seriously doubt that would be the case because if it were that comparison, I’m totally sure, would have already been made by now, ad nauseum.
            I’m sure you know what “close ties” means. As to the context of foreign relations versus the alleged collusion that is what the investigation is for. Putting those dealings in context. But republicans, it seem to me, to lack the same enthusiasm they had investigating democrats when it comes to investigating one of their own.
            The only fiasco surrounding Benghazi was the number of republican led investigations that resulted in nothing but a waste of taxpayer money.
            ” What exactly do you see in the evidence that suggests that an investigation by Congress is warranted?”
            1) The botched Yemen raid appears to have yielded nothing of value.
            2) It appears that Trump ordered the raid with inadequate intelligence and preparation.
            To me these to things ought to be enough. After all republicans spent millions investigating an incident NOT of our own creation.

            “Additionally, it would be helpful if you provided evidence of Trump profiting from the office of President rather than just allegations.”

            I offer this article from The Atlantic as evidence for the need to find out.

            “I seriously doubt that would be the case because if it were that comparison, I’m totally sure, would have already been made by now, ad nauseum.”

            We disagree.

            “I’m sure you know what “close ties” means.”

            No, in this context I don’t know what i means, which is what I stated in my comment. The term is vague and is often used by political operatives to conflate or inflate issues in an effort to confuse the average citizen as well as energize their supporters.

            “But republicans, it seem to me, to lack the same enthusiasm they had investigating democrats when it comes to investigating one of their own.”

            Perhaps, but the Democrats do the same thing; I find the hypocrisy by both sides offensive.

            “The only fiasco surrounding Benghazi was the number of republican led investigations that resulted in nothing but a waste of taxpayer money.”

            Are you seriously making this case and then making an issue of Yemen? If you do not find the delayed response and the fact that the people on the ground were so astounded at the lack of response from Washington that they mounted their own rescue attempt as well as the lies about the motivation behind the attack to be worthy of a Congressional investigation, then Congress should not investigate anything at all.

            “The botched Yemen raid appears to have yielded nothing of value.”

            No, it achieved its objective, which was to obtain data about local relationships. You can make the case that perhaps the price was too high, but military operations are always risky. That point does not warrant a Congressional investigation.

            “It appears that Trump ordered the raid with inadequate intelligence and preparation.”

            He conferred with two top military officials regarding the raid and set in motion a plan which had been developed many months before under the Obama administration. What more do you want him to do? He has to live with the result of his order. This was a military raid in hostile territory that involved inherent risks; the operators did not realize the nature of the relationship that existed between the tribesmen and the terrorists, which was the whole point of the raid in the first place. In other words they failed because they did not possess the intelligence that they were there to obtain…you cannot fault them for that. The military did its own investigation into the event and found that further investigation wasn’t necessary. Historically this is what happens after an event like this. Benghazi was different because of the suspected CIA gun running to Syria, the delayed rescue, the lack of other intervention, such as sending military aircraft over the site, as well as the lie about the motivation for the attack. Certainly Yemen was a very tragic situation, but not one worthy of a Congressional investigation.

            The Atlantic article was interesting and I have no issue with looking into it. Of course it would be interesting to hear the opposing argument as well before making a judgment. For example, I would like to know how other Presidents compare in this area.

          15. TheSkalawag929 says

            “We disagree.”
            Okay.
            “No, in this context I don’t know what i means.”
            Oh well.
            “but the Democrats do the same thing”
            False equivalence. Name such a time.
            “Are you seriously making this case and then making an issue of Yemen?”
            Yes. The last republican investigation into Behghazi cost 7 million dollars and found that it was the military at fault for the slow response not Washington (Hilary).
            “He conferred with two top military officials regarding the raid …”
            Your fall back position is that it was Obama’s plan? A plan that Obama himself did not approve.
            That doesn’t work because lying bent Don Con took ownership of it once he implemented it. He didn’t do his own homework. And to me conferring with two top military officials is not really doing your homework.
            As to the value of the information gained verses the losses sustained to obtain it that is debatable and all the more reason for a through investigation.

          16. Tired... says

            “‘but the Democrats do the same thing’
            False equivalence. Name such a time.”

            If you truly believe that only one side does this then there is no point in even talking. However, Bill Clinton having a private conversation with the Attorney General as his wife was under investigation would be one example. The resistance to the Benghazi hearing would be another.

            “Your fall back position is that it was Obama’s plan? A plan that Obama himself did not approve.”

            Did you even read my response? In the quote you used above you completely ignored the fact that I stated “He conferred with two top military officials regarding the raid …” addressing your accusation “that Trump ordered the raid with inadequate intelligence and preparation.”
            Furthermore, my comment about the raid being planned during the Obama administration spoke to your charge that the operation was poorly planned by demonstrating that it had been planned for months, not that it was Obama’s plan.

            “And to me conferring with two top military officials is not really doing your homework.”

            So what would “doing his homework” look like beyond conferring with his top military leaders?

            “As to the value of the information gained verses the losses sustained to obtain it that is debatable and all the more reason for a through investigation.”

            Again, the military already did this. Why does it warrant a Congressional investigation?

          17. TheSkalawag929 says

            “Bill Clinton having a private conversation with the Attorney General ”
            Not the same thing.
            I saw your reference to the top military officials. So what. The mission was still a failure. The fact that the plan had been around for sometime doesn’t change the fact that lying bent Don Con didn’t do his homework and update the plan according to the fluidity of the situation in the Middle East.
            “Why does it warrant a Congressional investigation?”
            For the same reason there were so many republican led Benghazi investigations except that this incident was of lying bent Don Con’s making. The man is not fit to be President.

          18. Tired... says

            “‘Bill Clinton having a private conversation with the Attorney General”
            Not the same thing.”

            Sorry, but that was a significant problem. You chose to leave out several key points, such as the rest of my statement “…while his wife was under investigation.” Do you really expect me to believe that you would have no problem with this if a Republican did the same thing? Personally I have a problem with it regardless of who does it. If we remove politics, would it be ethical for the wife of a mafia don to have a private conversation with the prosecutor during his trial? Both Clinton and Lynch are attorneys; they knew better and that meeting wasn’t a casual meeting in the grocery store or a simple indiscretion.

            Many missions fail and the military investigates them. If they require further examination then Congress will take a look at it. You are comparing Benghazi to Yemen…that is simply absurd.

          19. TheSkalawag929 says

            “‘Bill Clinton having a private conversation with the Attorney General”
            Not the same thing.”
            No. She wasn’t a foreign agent.
            “Do you really expect me to believe that you would have no problem with this if a Republican did the same thing?”
            Different circumstances. She was not a foreign agent.

            “would it be ethical for the wife of a mafia don to have a private conversation with the prosecutor during his trial?”
            I don’t know. But you can make up any comparison you want unless it is the same as what Page is being accused of it doesn’t matter.

            “What exactly are those reasons?”
            How about determining the competence of lying bent Don Con to be President of the United States. So far he is failing.

            “Did Trump lie about what happened?”
            I don’t know. But he has lied about everything else why not this too? Perhaps an investigation would answer your question.

            “Before you blame the military, …”
            I would not blame the military. I look to the Commander in Chief for that.

            “Out of curiosity, how many failed military operations does Congress investigate?”
            I don’t know. It’s your question you find the answer.

          20. Tired... says

            Your responses lack substance and you avoid answering questions that might challenge your paridigm. We do not have to agree, but at least make reasonable counterarguments. At this point I am no longer interested in continuing this conversation. I wish you the best.

          21. TheSkalawag929 says

            “Your responses lack substance …”
            What kind of dressing do you offer with this word salad.
            “We do not have to agree,”
            True.
            “but at least make reasonable counterarguments.”
            I have.
            I wish you the best as well.

            It’s also curious how none of Hillary’s fans find any problem with her failures, fabrications, and involvement in radioactive gifts to Russia!

          23. AKLady says

            There was no “radioactive gifts to Russia”.

            Uranium One is a Canadian company who has operations in Australia, Canada, Kazakhstan, South Africa and the United States.

            Nine U.S. Departments were involved in the approval of the uranium sale.

          24. TheSkalawag929 says

            What is curious is that you use BS as a shield against facts and truth.
            The truth of the whole matter is that republicans put the real failure and fabricator in the White House.
            Lying bent Don Con has failed and lied more times in his first 99 days in office than Hilary has in her whole career as a politician.

          25. glorybe2 says

Next to go is Rush Limbaugh. Trump has killed all those right media. They cannot criticize Trump for he will tell them they are fake. Gun sales are now down by 95%. Do you remember these right wing media accused the IRS of delaying registered as non-profit. These media were just there to jip gullible Americans. Now they are dying happy deaths. I am preparing a grave for each of them in my back yard. I will invite you to the party.

      2. gets2say says

        Read above again.. Trump selected his name from a list of qualified persons. This would have been someone he was willing to consider. This is nothing more than a selection of prospects to interview. In this case, he found someone else and Trump and Page never met. If you’ve ever been involved in talent searches for your company, you should understand this sequence of events. Please don’t join the ridiculous media iin fabricating whole cloth from one thread!

        1. Morton99 says

          Did you just think of that ? I’m sorry – I take Trump at face value. What he says he means – no interpretation needed. Of course he may do a 180 degree change by the following day. But that is because he is incompetent.

          1. AKLady says

            He has done a number of 180s.
            He is simply in over his head,
            He does not know what he is doing,

          2. Morton99 says

            I think that is apparent to everyone – except his dumb base. He does not even realize that he is being used by the Republican Congress.- they manipulate him into their agenda and then he screws it up by making insane comments – that the Federal Judges are now using against him.

          3. AKLady says

            Trump is also using the Presidency to make himself and others significantly more wealthy. He is following the “dictator” model. The Courts have stopped him, next comes impeachment proceedings.

  2. Morton99 says

    Trump named you as an advisor and that is all that matters. You did not object to it – either.

    1. Tired... says

      Sorry but that is not correct; it matters if they met/communicated and Paige actually played a role in Trump’s campaign. If this occurred, contrary to the story above, then the investigation should continue; if not, then it is time to let it die unless there is credible additional evidence to suggest otherwise.

      1. Morton99 says

        Neither the Trump administration nor Carter can have it both ways. Someone or perhaps neither side is telling the truth. Obviously Trump wants to distance himself from Carter now, and Carter does not want to go to prison. There are more than ample grounds for a proper and thorough investigation.

        1. Tired... says

          I never said that there shouldn’t be an investigation, but perhaps you can point out where they “have it both ways?”

          1. Mike says

            I believe his point was that you cannot name him as an advisor and then say he had nothing to do with the campaign and he should not call himself a former advisor.

          2. Tired... says

            “I believe his point was that you cannot name him as an advisor and then say he had nothing to do with the campaign”

            My point was that you can if he never advised you. The explanation offered in the article was that the Trump team did not deny that Trump named him as an adviser; they merely pointed out that Paige never served in that capacity.

            I do not know if Paige called himself a former adviser or not, so I cannot speak to it one way on another. If you are correct and he did call himself a former adviser, then it needs to be determined if he actually served in that capacity or was only looking to pad his resume.

          3. Morton99 says

            Trump is on video mentioning Carter as one of his advisers. At that time Carter (who was interviewed) did not dispute it. Now they both have a different story.

            Perhaps, but the video was explained in the article above; if true, that doesn’t mean that Trump is trying to have it both ways. His team merely offered a clarification between what was said and what actually occurred.

            As far as the Paige interview is concerned let’s take a look at this from a different perspective. if you were told that you were chosen by the future President of the United States (one that you supported, or at least didn’t despise) to serve as an adviser, even if you had not officially been asked, would you deny it? Now, if he confirmed that he was actually serving in that capacity during the interview, then your statement would be accurate.

          5. Morton99 says

            I do not claim to know all the facts. But the Trump campaign has already had some very shady mishaps – like Flynn and Manaport – and so I believe that there needs to be a thorough investigation – especially now that the White House is refusing to give documents to the Judiciary Committee, and also that so little is known about Trump’s foreign personal dealings. This blog is full of people who seem to be determined to NOT know what lies beneath the surface; more fool are they.

            Nor do you know all the facts. So I am perplexed that you keep on trying to invent reasons why Trump and his campaign should not be investigated.

          6. Tired... says

            Kindly refrain from accusing me of something I never said. I am well aware that I don’t know everything, but then again, no one does so we are all playing with the same deficit (feel free to insert snarky comment here).

            I have to admit that your perplexion is perplexing. Allow me to quote from my previous response: “I never said that there shouldn’t be an investigation…” I expect both sides to abide by the Constitution and have no trouble investigating/prosecuting those who abuse it.

          7. Morton99 says

            Good. Then lets stop arguing and wait with bated breath fro the results of a proper investigation.

          8. Tired... says

            Investigate away, but an investigation was not the focus of this side conversation.

    If it has Commiecrat fingerprints on it, it’s all lies!

      That insult was worn out decades ago.

    Carter how much were you paid? Soros is loaded!

    1. AKLady says

      So are the Koch boys. Daddy made his money building 17 refineries for the Nazi during WW II.

  5. Mike says

    the problem is that trump himself named page as one of his foreign policy advisors. he may not have served long but he was a part of his team.

    1. Tired... says

      On the surface perhaps, but in reality it boils down to whether was Paige a participating member of the Trump team or not. Remember, the Paige link is the keystone in the Trump/Russia collusion argument and in order for that argument to be valid there has to be some communication between Trump and Paige (i.e., emails, communication via surrogates, face-to-face meetings, etc.). In other words, Paige must be a conduit for the exchange of information between Trump and Russia for the collusion charge, as it now stands, to have validity.

      “Page’s name first surfaced as a member of the Trump campaign team last spring when the candidate himself named him as one of his foreign policy advisers in a TV interview. According to sources within the campaign, however, Trump merely picked Page’s name from a list of foreign policy experts…perhaps for no better reason than the fact that he had a doctorate. In reality, however, all parties involved – Trump, his campaign team, and Page himself – say the two never met.”

      According to the quote, it appears that Paige never actually served in that capacity at all. If the information contained in the quote is inaccurate, then there may be a problem, depending upon the nature and severity of inaccuracy.

      1. Mike says

        It seems that you are assuming it has to be a direct link and not just one in the chain that leads to the White House and collusion with Russia. Carter Page may not have had a conversation with Trump he was not one of his trusted advisors so he may not have, but that does not mean he could not and did not act as an intermediary on Trump’s behalf to work with Russia.

        1. Morton99 says

          I understand also, that Carter may have been brought on by Manafort, who was the campaign manager at the campaign at that time, and who may be in as much trouble as Lynch albeit for different reasons. Manafort has an interesting history of lobbying for some of the most brutal dictators of the last two decades, including the oustered President of the Ukraine.

        2. Tired... says

          I am not making that assumption at all; I was merely making a point in response to your original post, which stated “…he may not have served long but he was a part of his team” and my comment should be understood in that context.

          1. Garden_Goddess says

            Block the libber Mike. I did so I don’t have to see his gibberish!!!

          2. Tired... says

            I don’t block people just because we disagree; I only block them when they refuse to offer thoughtful content (I.e. AKLady, Annabib, Eleanor Whittaker, etc.).

        3. pineapple says

          Why would Putin help Trump when Hillary is the one who brokered the deal that gave Russia control of 20 per cent of the uranium produced in the U.S.

          Shortly afterwards, Bill Clinton received $500,000 for making a speech in Russia.

          Sounds like quid pro quo to me.

          1. Mike says

            what a bunch of bs. it is true the state department did sign off on that deal. they were one of nine government agencies that had to sign off on it. there was never any connection there by as a trump sheeple you must distract from what is in front of you. I understand.

    2. gets2say says

      You’re still perpetuating a myth.

  6. Ron C says

    Modern investigative journalism, is just a name the MSM give their selves, to a propagandist’s the truth has no bearing on their reporting…and apparently facts have no bearing on how the modern day FBI chose to investigate or which cases to even investigate…seems to me the American public would be better off without the FBI or the MSM…

    1. Mike says

      Yes that way Trump can get away with everything like a true dictator.

      1. Roger says

        Just like you are always GETTING AWAY with sticking your lips up chillery’s pant legs, eh ?

        1. Texascat says

          I just said the same thing to Mike just before I blocked the fool.

          1. Mike says

            Again way to be a good Trump sheeple. Would not want facts to get in the way of your ability to love and believe Trump’s BS. He would be proud of you Trump sheeple.

          2. Bill says

            Sheeple are sheeple, apparently. You don’t seem to see how well Barack and Hillary have been using you! If Trump were in the Socialist Democratic party, you’d love him! You call him a dictator, and yet he has done nothing near what BO did to run the government on his own terms with a pen and a phone. Somehow, you don’t see that, or more likely, Barack Hussein was your dictator, so he was okay. If you weren’t such a Commie, you could perhaps look out for the good of America, but maybe you don’t see any of that.

          3. Mike says

            President Trump has not passed any meaningful legislation. He has signed the most executive orders at this point in a Presidency which exactly what you are deriding Obama for. Please educate yourself because on this you just sound ridiculous. Trump has highlighted his use of executive orders which is what Obama did and he thought was terrible.

          4. Bill says

            Yes, I’m sure Obama cried into his phone over having to push his Communist, anti-American agenda all on his own, just because Congress wouldn’t be as traitorous as he thought they should be. Poor man. And I doubt that you complained a bit when he was nurturing a borderless, high crime, racist, bankrupt, government-oppressed, non-competitive, welfare state. Either you didn’t notice all of this happening, or as a good Democrat partisan you condone it. Talk about uneducated and ridiculous! Or simply subversive.

      2. Ron C says

        The DNC did throw a primary election, and the authorities didn’t even fart over it…business as usual.

  7. papa doug says

    So let me get this straight. THIS is how Pelosi, Waters, Schumer and other master investigators got their intelligence, from Clinton and the national news media! WOW, just wow!

    1. AKLady says

      Right-wing insanity.

  8. Larry Brule says

    THE TRUTH, JUST THE TRUTH AND NOTHING ELSE. THE MSM LYING AGAIN. PAGE SAYS HE WAS NEVER AN ADVISOR. TRUMP IS SMART AS A FOX. MISLED HILLARY AND SHE TOOK HOOK, LINE AND SINKER.

    1. Morton99 says

      Lets get something straight. Trump has now committed more wrongs than Hillary ever even thought of. They include private cell phones which may well receive restricted data (unless its just golf handicaps), disasters in the Yemen (the Republican party is not even investigating this Yemengate FUBAR, violations of constitutional law, lying profusely to the American people, and possibly colluding with Russians in order to get elected.

      1. Tired... says

        I doubt that…she has quite the imagination!

        1. Morton99 says

          I seriously cannot think of anyone in the US who has been sued more times for not paying his bills, or if you like – petty theft. And then there are the fleecing operations like Trump University, the slew of false campaign promises which anyone sane must have known he could not keep.

          1. Tired... says

            I don’t think that either is a saint; I just think that she edges him by a nose.

          2. Morton99 says

            There is a difference. She has been alleged to have committed crimes – Trump has been caught doing ’em.

          3. Tired... says

            Yeah, we are going to see that differently….

      2. gotabgood says

        There is only one change I would make to your post…
        lying profusely to the American people, and possibly colluding with Russians in order to get elected.

  9. Donovan Nin says

    Trump said the guy is his advisor. Maybe l’il Donnie was lying, he does that a lot, but he still said it.

    1. Lyndau123 says

      YOU Liberals have been Blatantly Lying about every breath our POTUS takes and you have the stupidity to believe the worse about him even when it is PROVEN over and over again that he was correct and NOT lying! Talk about Ignorant sheepster Hypocrites!

      1. Donovan Nin says

        First of all, I am not a “liberal”. I am glad the traitorous, lying sociopath lost. The only bummer about HilLiary losing is that l’il Donnie won.

        Next, just because I am not liberal does not mean I am “conservative”. Here’s the thing; I think for myself.

        Finally, you can call me a hypocrite all you want, but that doesn’t change the fact that L’il Donnie stood in front of the cameras and said the guy was his advisor.

        Sure, maybe he just picked some name off a list because it was convenient to misrepresent the facts for some perceived convenience, but he still said it.

        If you are cool with a POTUS that makes things up in the spot for unknown reasons, then it is clear to me you are not worth taking to.

        Good day, sir.

    Look – the MSM is using your dealings with russian customers against ya’ll – even though they made fortunes doing the same thing……

  12. Timothy Toroian says

    There is probably a better chance of finding Clinton Foundation connection with Russians.

  13. Tiger says

    The more successful Trump is the more they will attempt to do and say anything to smear him, truth or not we see that daily. The Democrat party, no they died long ago, the Progressive/Communist/Socialist party is pulling it’s hair out and so busy crying and trying to find someway to discredit Trump, they have made laughing stocks of themselves. The world knows what they are.

    Now for some good news. Trump stopped the amnesty that Obama had granted to those from countries affected by Ebola. Another dirty little under cover program by that O. Enjoy the article, I surely did.

    A transcript of Donald Trump’s meeting with The Washington Post editorial board
    March 21, 2016

    TRUMP: Well, I hadn’t thought of doing it, but if you want I can give you some of the names… Walid Phares, who you probably know, PhD, adviser to the House of Representatives caucus, and counter-terrorism expert; Carter Page, PhD; George Papadopoulos, he’s an energy and oil consultant, excellent guy; the Honorable Joe Schmitz, [former] inspector general at the Department of Defense; [retired] Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg; and I have quite a few more. But that’s a group of some of the people that we are dealing with. We have many other people in different aspects of what we do, but that’s a representative group.

  15. WhiteFalcon says

    This just further indicates how much the MAM lies. They are almost totally fake news and as shcu should be totally disregarded.

  18. Carl_in_California says

    Do you people actually think you’re fooling anyone? (Besides yourselves…) Because, you’re not. The rest of us can see through this idiocy and misdirection… As self-styled patriots shouldn’t you be concerned that a foreign nation tampered with our election? I mean, you guys are SO worried that their might be election fraud that you institute all sorts of ways to restrict voting. But when the evidence points to a systematic attempt by a foreign power to influence our election its **Crickets** ? Who do you think you’re fooling? Besides yourselves…

    IT IS PAST TIME THAT THE MEDIA IS HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR FALSLEY REPORTING ANYTHING.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT AN AMERICAN FIRST.

    EVERY ONE AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME ESPECIALLY THE 5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.
