It seems like The Manchurian Candidate and Putin now have a relation not unlike Obama and the late president of Yemen. Blast each other publicly with a wink and a smile.

Ha! Remember when he said he wanted to bomb Russian assets but Gen Mattis says he held him back?

That was yesterday.

I think he meant he was going to throw some rubles on the ground and have a prostitute piss on them.

At the same time, while Trump is "studying" the sanctions (or having them translated to 280-character bits):
The United States and Britain on Monday accused Russia of launching cyber attacks on computer routers, firewalls and other networking equipment used by government agencies, businesses and critical infrastructure operators around the globe.

Washington and London issued a joint alert saying the campaign by Russian government-backed hackers was intended to advance spying, intellectual property theft and other “malicious” activities and could be escalated to launch offensive attacks.

It followed a series of warnings by Western governments that Moscow is behind a string of cyber attacks. The United States, Britain and other nations in February accused Russia of releasing the “NotPetya” virus, which in 2017 crippled parts of Ukraine’s infrastructure and damaged computers across the globe, costing companies billions of dollars.

If Trump had colluded with Russia, Putin could blow him out of the water with a reveal.

I'm sure he's mad enough at Trump to do it, what with all the sanctions and bombings, if Trump had only colluded.

Will one of you brain damaged people please tell Mueller the mong? Thanks.

You haven’t been paying attention. The legislature passed sanctions with an overwhelming majority. Trump signed the bill and then never enforced them. He warned Russia about the strikes, and he just walked back the sanctions his ambassador announced.

If the Russians did have something on him this is exactly how it would play out.

I do think that Russian's actions are transparent to most thinking people, but it seems to them that lying bear faced about most things is the accepted way that Russia does things, and it has done it the same way for a very long time.

They play the aggrieved innocent very well.

Doesn't Trump owe the Russian oligarchy A LOT of $$$? He hasn't been able to get money from Wall St. since the 90s at least. One of his spawn was bragging about getting Russian money a couple of years before the election. If that is true, they will want him to stay right where he is, looting taxpayer money right into their pockets. Not to mention that his refusal to impose sanctions, both now and last January, is advantageous to them. Double bonus dollars (it's always the dollar).

It's more obvious every day. Trump's hidden tax returns, his family money ties to Russian mob, the constant stream of disproven lies about when they met Russians and what they discussed when they met. Cohen in Prague, the Steele dossier, the lack of enforcement on sanctions, the warnings before the bombings in Syria, the announcement and then immediate cancelation of sanctions, Cohen being in Prague...confirming the Steele allegations...after Cohen denied being there...

Trump is being blackmailed by Russia. There's no other explanation at this point.

According to a report by the Associated Press, the White House is in a frenzy over the raids that resulted in the seizure of documents, cell phones, and bank records from Michael Cohen's homes, hotel room, and safety deposit box. The AP says Trump probably can stop the Mueller probe by firing Mueller or both him and Rod Rosenstein, but the raids and seizures were conducted by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, who presumably is not subject to the President's ability to hire and fire.

Cohen has openly boasted about being the President's fixer, and the White House won't know until everyone else does exactly what is in the materials seized.

so the WH accused Haley of getting "ahead of the curve" and saying "there might have been some momentary confusion ..." regarding Haley. Haley hits back, saying "I don’t get confused"

what a fucking shit show.

ah, Ivanka and Jared were indeed headed for Peru last week
A Republican close to the White House acknowledged that the married couple prefers to lay low during hectic moments because they don’t want to be associated with stories about chaos in the White House. They also do not wish to become any further enmeshed in the Russia probe, particularly if the president fires special counsel Robert Mueller.

The two aides also have a tense relationship with chief of staff John Kelly, who has whittled down the expansiveness of their White House portfolios and revoked Kushner’s high-level security clearance. As Kelly becomes further marginalized in the White House, the two do not want to be seen as contributing to his diminishing role, the close White House adviser added.

Legacy admission usually means that ancestors of yours went to the school in question. I don't thiink that is the case with Jared Kushner. GW Bush and Yale, yes.

My sources say that Charles Kushner went to NYU undergraduate and then to Hofstra Law School.

Would it harm Trump if Russia released the pee tape tomorrow, or has everyone already figured that it exists and brushed it off as just Trump being Trump again?

it's a good question. i've pretty much resigned myself to the fact that a certain segment of the populus has created a cult-like, religious support of Trump, no matter what he does -- as Reza Aslan points out, the video of which i posted out on another thread.i dont think they will change much
