Dude, Trump is the swamp creature. There is no indication that Sue Gordon has been anything other than an ethical public official. What happened with her is just one more indication of how corrupt Trump is.

The game is over. Why do you think Coats was shown the door. He's slow walking information the public needs to see.

You bother to read the Rosemary Collyer FISA abuse report I posted. The government was caught fucking spying on Americans.

You're stuck on Trump when you should be more worried about your civil liberties.

You didn't think this would happen after 9/11 eventually? I don't think this is a Dem vs Rep thing. This is our government overstepping the 4th amendment.

They need a few brush back pitches. Get the game back to where it should be.

Sue Gordon wasn't going to allow that.

Jesus, SG, we've all known this for at least 50 years. I'm enjoying the fact that the FBI comes out of this debacle of their own making looking really, really, bad.

They should have stuck to provacateur work among the tree huggers. :rofl:

Wasn't Sue Gordon not allowed to brief POTUS b/c she would discuss Russia? We know how sensitive Trump is.

Yes, I saw that. Two things:

One: it is an allegation that's been denied and has not been confirmed.

Two: If it IS true that the FBI asked him to rekindle a relationship with Butina I do not see that as a big deal. I do not see that as a "deep state" thing. I see it as a law enforcement agency asking a potential informant with a connection to use that connection.

I haven't seen the clip, just read he's pretty much loony - disclaimer.

The issue with Butina is this. He's wealthy and connected, and if he's introducing Butina to people, it's a whole lot easier to get a FISA on a Russian.

Remember the two hop rule? You tie her to anyone and you get to listen in on a vast swath.

Because they are trying to circumvent the 4th amendment to surveil Americans. They didn't a crap about Butina, they simply needed an easy way to surveil Americans.

That is nonsense. The FBI asking someone to cultivate a relationship with someone else in order to develop evidence is not circumventing the 4th amendment.

What about the 4th Amendment do you think was violated by the FBI asking this guy to resume his relationship with the woman (if that is even true)?

Let me answer your question with a question.

What is Butina in jail for? My point in asking this, is because it looks as if the charges were very weak, meaning that they were simply using her as a means to listen in on whoever they wanted.

You can't circumvent the 4th whenever you want by using a non-guilty Russian.

Of course we'll have to wait and see what the truth is. Like I originally said, the guy seemed a bit loony.

Wouldn't they be derelict in their duty if they didn't surveil Americans who hang out with Russian spies? :coffee:

The government can hold anybody for as long as they want to hold them and they don't need any charges to do it. If you want to get rich quick get your nose into the Federal Child-Trafficing Agency trough. $775 per diem for each brown kid you can catch and hold. :thumb:

That's what we will find out. Was she really a spy, or were they simply using the guise of a spy.

After seeing the FBI use previous informant Carter Paige as a supposed spy, only to never charge him, it makes me lean towards "fake spy".
