    furthermore:

    "According to three former officials with knowledge of the 2017 meeting, Trump told Lavrov and Kislyak he was “unconcerned” about Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election, given the United States “did the same in other countries.”

    this is trump being a sophisticated person who is correct, because he knows how this stuff works. no need to freak the fuck out about normal stuff everyone always does and always will do.

    Anybody who doesn't believe that all sides of every political conflict since the beginning of humankind have sought to influence the outcome of adversaries regime changes is incredibly naive and self deluded.
    Does anybody even think that the Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon. et al administration's intelligence service didn't try to influence who would be the next Russian premier after Khrushchev, Andropov, etc?

    The Russian interference apparently is so yesterday. Dems have moved on to other things when that fell thru for them

    exactly. in todays columbia journalism report:


    "Facebook data submitted to Congress about the IRA’s ads on its site further diminished their impact: more than half of the impressions associated with the IRA’s Facebook ads came after the election.

    Porter, writing in Consortium News, said the Times’ use of the 126 million audience number, plus the piece’s failure to reflect that Facebook users were exposed to 33 trillion news feeds during the relevant period, “should vie in the annals of journalism as one of the most spectacularly misleading use of statistics of all time"


    this is EXACTLY WHAT I SAID AT THE TIME
