President Trump´s former deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland told a friend in an email when she was on Trump´s transition team that Russia "threw" the U.S. election to Trump, The New York Times reported Saturday. McFarland reportedly wrote in the email that sanctions then-President Obama levied on Russia in response to Moscow´s election meddling would make it more difficult for Trump to improve relations with Russia, "which has just thrown the U.S.A. election to him."

Trump transition official in email" Obama ´has just thrown the U.S.A election´ - there I fixed the headline.

It´s called karma. So obama acting tough towards Russia backfires and actually helps elect President Trump. Hillary needs to add that to her book What Happened. Fake news headline and story.

Those crafty Ruskies. They tricked Hillary into calling Trump supporters ´Deplorables´, advised her not to campaign in Wisconsin, had her waste resources campaigning in elite liberal enclaves, ignore pleas to address the white working class, and made sure she hired lots of overpaid lackeys to manage the campaign.

KT McFarland writes her opinion in an email. That does not mean the opinion is true, and writing her opinion, I think, is still legal in this country. As for KT McFarland, PDT never followed the advice of his advisers, which is the real reason he is POTUS.

Once again I point out that the Obamboozler had Trump under surveillance for at least a year. They would have known about any of this so-called "collusion" and used it as an October Surprise.
How come we didn´t know about any of this until 24 hours after the Hillbag lost the election?

The big question is how the New York Slimes got hold of these internal Trump transition team emails, which confirm that the Obama criminals were “wiretapping” Trump and his team all along. Once the Slimes got them, there is no question they would be dishonestly “reported” by the Slimes’ political hack professional liars.

There is a context to the word "threw" that is clearly being ignored in this report, and likely by the investigators. Remember, it all depends what "is" is.

Get a grip, people!

The American voters threw the election to Mr. Trump. The ones who were not on the coasts did not overcome those in the middle in the electoral college.

A recent grpahic from "Turning Point USA" shows that Los Angeles County has a bigger population than ALL OTHER STATES except for California, Texas, Florida, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York.

Hitlery is not a likeable person. She is dishonest, untruthful, misused her office to create influence with donors, and sold us out on the Uranium deal.

Russia had NOTHING TO DO with who voted. She did not have the votes.

Can we quit playing the media´s little games and move on to bigger purposes now?

I´d like to agree with #18, but unfortunately we have a Special Counsel investigation and 90% of the country´s media that is absolutely dedicated to taking down President Trump. They are real threats. It would help if the President had more active support from Congressional members of his own party, and his Attorney General.

Article is simply another media smear of PDT. KT put the comment "which has just thrown the U.S.A. election to him." in quotes to show that this is what Dems and the MSM were uttering about Hillary´s inexplicable-to-them loss. It is not McFarland´s secret insight but her view about the Hillary Clinton directed Russian collusion story. Only ABC´s discredited Brian Ross would take this story seriously.

I think the ruskies helped throw the election to PRESIDENT Trump. When the voters found out that hussien allowed hitlary to sell 20% of our uranium mine to the ruskies, voters realized what a traitor the two were and voted for PRESIDENT Trump. and the media helped. But like McFarland, this is just my opinion.

Obama did not impose the sanctions that are in question against the Russians until almost two months after the election. Unless McFarland is a high ranking Russian spy she would have no way of knowing just what the Russians did to “throw” the election to Trump, the truth be known even the Russian Government today does not really understand why Trump won. Clearly McFarland who was new to her job was stating her opinion, and no doubt the FBI will be asking her what facts her opinion was based upon.

There is no doubt the the Russians have no use for Clinton, Obama and the liberal Democrats who they believed were all about fermenting “regime change” in Middle East countries and even in Russia.

It appears that the USA really dodged a bullet when Clinton was defeated, as she, and McCain, were proposing that the US military take action to kick the Russian Air Force and Army out of Syria, an action that if followed through on could well have resulted in a shooting war between Russia a huge nuclear power, and the USA.

The Russians, and a lot of other countries, are always going to be out there doing a lot of things that are adverse to US interests as long as they think their actions will be beneficial to Russia and other countries national interests.

Good grief. KT’s thought process on this one wasn’t at all hard to track. What Russia did caused Obama to do this which then set up the Democrat Hillary to lose. The beneficiary: Donald Trump.

These people need things in crayon letters two feet high! Even then because they are looking to make trouble for President Trump, they become deaf, dumb and blind to the reality of what has been said. Instead they pretzel it into something quite different and oogly boogly.

Re #25, she could have said "Russia has just effectively thrown the USA election” because she was opining that their action had precipitated a chain reaction that went against the Dems.

Her tweet was colloquial. Not intended to be parsed by either real or amateur lawyers. :-)

Wall Street Journal: Bannon ‘is for losers’ © Greg Nash The Wall Street Journal´s editorial board ripped President Trump´s former chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, in the wake of Alabama Senate Republican nominee Roy Moore´s defeat, saying "Bannon is for losers." "The Alabama result shows that Mr. Bannon cares less about conservative policy victories than he does personal king-making. He wants to depose Mitch McConnell as Majority Leader even if it costs Republicans Senate control. GOP voters, take note: Mr. Bannon is for losers," the board wrote in an op-ed on Wednesday.

The Dec. 1 plea deal struck with President Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, marked a big step forward in Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. It may also have provided some protection for Mueller against being fired by the president—and helped ensure that his probe will continue, even if one day he’s not leading it. (Snip) Even if Mueller goes, his team is providing tools that other prosecutors or investigators can use to continue inquiries. Flynn’s deal requires him to cooperate with state and local officials as well as with federal investigators.

Paul Manafort ghost-wrote an editorial about his political work in Ukraine, violating a court order, according to a new court filing from the special counsel’s office. The allegation was disclosed Monday as the reason the special counsel was backing out of a deal on bail with Manafort’s lawyers. The deal would have loosened the terms of house arrest for President Trump’s former campaign manager. Manafort wanted to be allowed to travel among a few states in return for agreeing to forfeit $11.6 million in property if he missed a court appearance.

President Trump said Saturday he had to fire Michael Flynn as national security adviser because he lied to Vice President Pence and the FBI, an apparent shift from the reasons Trump stated at the time of Flynn´s ouster. Trump’s changing rationale is a discrepancy that will catch the attention of prosecutors on Mueller’s team looking into whether the president tried to obstruct the investigation. "I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies," Trump tweeted while traveling in New York City for fundraising events.

A retired Alabama police officer said she was told to keep an eye on Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore back in the 1980s because he was known to harass teenage cheerleaders at local school ballgames. Ex-Gadsden cop Faye Gray told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell that rumors of Moore’s liking young girls were heard on a daily basis and she was informed that he had been banned from Gadsden Mall because he allegedly targeted young female employees. “We were also told to watch him at the ballgames and make sure that he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders,” Faye said.

Cook Political Report, a top nonpartisan election handicapper, is predicting a wave of Democratic victories in the 2018 midterm elections.

Bush´s second term. “[B]ack in 2006 ... I argued that unlike the last wave election of 1994, the party holding the White House was much better prepared.

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to
