Those places are within the political boundaries of Honduras

Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday that he never denied President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 campaign, only that the President himself was not involved in collusion.

In an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo on "Cuomo Prime Time," Giuliani, a former New York mayor and Trump's attorney, said he doesn't know if other people in the campaign, including former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, were working with the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential race.

"I never said there was no collusion between the campaign, or people in the campaign," Giuliani said.
He added, "I said the President of the United States. There is not a single bit of evidence the President of the United States committed the only crime you can commit here, conspiring with the Russians to hack the DNC."

It's another remarkable statement from Giuliani, given that the President and his supporters have repeatedly denied any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. A person familiar with the matter told CNN last week that Manafort, while serving as Trump's campaign chairman, tried to send internal polling data from the Trump campaign with two Kremlin-supporting Ukrainian oligarchs through his associate Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian national who is linked to Russian intelligence.

Now you care what Rudy says.

Okay, just like how Dems now care about our troops.

So far we got charges on stuff from ten years ago and some charges on process crimes. Where's the collusion charges for those middle men Trump used to collude with Russia? You know, the whole reason you started this abortion of a thread.


But, in general... Federal investigations take a long time... Does the fact that McCabe hasn't been indicted mean that he is in the clear? :coffee:

Because his buddies in the DOJ are looking out for him. You really aren't good at this. :lol:

https://www.wsj.com/articles/poll-riggi ... 1547722801

In early 2015, a man who runs a small technology company showed up at Trump Tower to collect $50,000 for having helped Michael Cohen, then Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, try to rig online polls in his boss’s favor before the presidential campaign.

In his Trump Organization office, Mr. Cohen surprised the man, John Gauger, by giving him a blue Walmart bag containing between $12,000 and $13,000 in cash and, randomly, a boxing glove that Mr. Cohen said had been worn by a Brazilian mixed-martial arts fighter, Mr. Gauger said.
:lol:


But seriously, if true. This has got to be a huge deal.

First, Manafort is providing the Russians with internal polling data. Data that the campaign uses to understand where it's failing and succeeding. Where to pull and spend money. Which demographics are you gaining, losing or is up for grabs. Why would you share that with anyone outside of the campaign?

Now this? An attempt to rig polling?

Very very suspicious.... :coffee:

But think of the wrench this throws into the campaign finance control crowd. If all you have to do to swing an election is spend $13k on poll rigging and another small amount on targeted Facebook adverstisements, then who cares about the millions of dollars campaigns spend on all the other stuff that apparently doesn't even matter.

Good point. The 2016 election cost about $6B.


That money could've been used on something better.
