House intel panel's final report: No Russia 'collusion'
The House Intelligence Committee released a heavily redacted final report Friday on its yearlong Russia investigation documenting its previously reported conclusion that it found no evidence of collusion between the Trump presidential campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 election.
Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said the Republican-authored report confirms that from ‚Äúday one, the ‚ÄėRussian collusion‚Äô investigation into the Trump campaign was an empty case.‚ÄĚ...
Philip, you have some interesting thoughts, though I wouldn't go quite as far as calling these people traitors.

The report insists that leaks linked to the Trump-Russia story have "damaged national security and potentially endangered lives," but the section of the report explaining this claim is completely redacted.

The Russians used Clinton‚Äôs server in her closet to influence the election. They hacked Potesta‚Äôs computer system using his password,‚ÄĚ password ‚Äú, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, she hired 2 guys who were jihadists to be the dnc it guys. Okay Jim, your turn.
Considering that the so called Russian collusion scandel eventually envolved members of BOTH parties, the no collusion verdict is safe, easy, convenient and the only possible verdict that guarantees no one getting exposed or embarrassed for any possible wrong doing. This is also another reason why I am neither Democrat or Republican. They are BOTH traitors to their country. As a former congressman was fond of saying, we don't need a third party, we need a second party.
