    The Russian Scandal Was A Lie - Surprised?

    So news broke the other day that Trump and the Russians didn't rig the election like so many at MSNBC and CNN wanted people to believe. They had no facts and pulled things out of thin air. Just like they did for the 2016 election. I hope this shows people they need to stop trusting mainstream media and do their own research or support independent reporters you can trust. The big news corporations are a bunch of crooks in my book.

    What are your thoughts on this? Should the people who pushed this narrative as fact and lied to millions be fined, fired, or held accountable in any other way?

    Agreed on MSM being crooks. The people who made up these false accusations should lose any proceeds gained as a result of their accusations, and likewise be witch hunted for 2.5 years. Punishment should fit the crime. False accusations of any kind are not to be taken lightly, because I don't want future presidents getting away with things because the MSM cried wolf this time.

    That is a really good point too. Like imagine if they kept this up and the next president did something horrific and screwed over the entire country and go away with it because of these BS reporters. There should be some kind of law to protect citizens from fake news. It isn't right. I feel like they focus too much on petty stuff and not the things that truly matter too... As a result we have half the country running around screaming things they don't even understand.

    It's a very slippery slope, that much is certain.

    I actually heard some reporters are still insisting it is a lie and they are covering things up. Where were these people when Obama, Bush, and Clinton were in office? I mean all three did some shady stuff (Especially Clinton) but no one batted an eye.

    Sure they did shady stuff but their policies didn't threaten the status quo. Ttump's actually shaking things up and changing the ways in which the public act for better or for worse. Likewise, that shakes up the media's grip on us and they understandably hate that...so they slander him and try to make him out to be simultaneously an idiot and the worlds best Russian spy.

    Justice will come, in this life or the next... but I wouldn't count on it happening in this one.

    It's not pulled out of thin air. Did you read the report? I didn't support Hillary either, mainstream media has its problems...but the evidence shows Trump's team *did* work with Russian actors to use dirt dug up on Hillary (and hey, DNC deserved what they got). They're not Kremlin agents or anything, they just ignorantly didn't think of the consequences when this is a presidential election, not one of Trump's typical business deals. The stakes are much, much higher, as they should be: think of the precedent this will set.

    Furthermore, without Trump working with them, Russians did in fact try to influence the election (in his favor, for whatever reason they preferred him to Hilldawg) via bots and fake accounts/ads on Facebook (mostly) and Twitter--oh, and hacked emails. So your premise that it was all a lie is factually mistaken and I honestly have no idea how you reached it. (This is not unique to this election, of course, which is why I find it odd Republicans consistently block what should be bi-partisan measures to improve our cybersecurity, as of late.)

    And, like Tricky Dicky, Bill, and Hillary before him (emails? What emails?), Trump's coverup of that is what's going to do him in more than the thing itself, made it worse by not just coming clean initially. (As he said it himself, "I'm f*cked")

    Barr misguiding public opinion beforehand, by the way (which as evidenced by this thread, succeeded more than I had thought) and subsequent ignoring of a subpoena is going to land him in contempt. (On that note, know how many associates of Trump were indicted, removed from their positions, and/or arrested? A *lot* but hey, thin air, right?)
    No one's gonna' give you a map. You've gotta' walk your own path.
