Most of the accusations against Trump are true. It happens that this one has been one of them, and the evidence is now much stronger. Ignoring it reveals that you're a traitor. Skepticism is acceptable, but discounting such an extreme act is treasonous. If mostly true, this is no like the non-existent lies told about Hillary which at most were minor crimes done by most politicians. This would be a high crime for which he should be locked up.

Ok, there are five lights. Looks like it was all a misunderstanding and Russia has cleared things up for us.

Also the irony of Trump asking the question.

It's very telling that conservatives are putting this on Liberals. This report was given to the F.B.I. from John McCain. I don't have any idea who leaked the material, but blaming "MSM" is fantasy level disengagement from the facts.

Russia said it's ok? Well, no ****. Guess we don't have a problem.

Now, from what I read last night (not sure if anything has changed), it's allegations. There is a report that buzzfeed posts, but most media admonished them for not really verifying it, so they won't touch it, other than to say it's out there.

This is definite smoke, but not sure we can call it a fire yet.

If true, he really might get impeached his first year. This is insane.

Yeah, I don't think the "documents" are likely to be verified or real.

On the other hand I don't think the intel agencies knowing they are 9 days away from reporting to Trump would just write down some random hunch without a lot behind it, and zero people, Trump included, have denied the agencies made such a report. He's only arguing about the validity of the report, not whether it was delivered. They'll pay for it, especially since someone else fairly predictably leaked it. I just can't see a motive for the CIA and others to try to get Trump even more worked up to fire all of them. I see nothing at all for them to gain here. So strong reason to believe that the Trump campaign was actively coordinating with a foreign power is very very concerning.

Russia and 4chan have said there is nothing to see here. How do such reliable statements not end the thread?

Also you guys need to be more PC and stop being so mean to Mr. Trump.

I have no idea how much is true of what's been flying around - it wouldnt surprise me either way - but I do think Trump is learning that it was a big mistake to publicly mess with the CIA. Yes he might be able to fire the Director and maybe a few top leaders, but that's a very large organization with a lot of institutional memory.

Every time a POTUS (or Senator or Congressman or...) goes to war with the CIA he gets some major blowback.

In some ways, this might be a useful warning shot to Trump from the people that have been more or less running things for awhile overseas.

No one wants this to be true. Any of it. Because it will cause an upheaval of epic proportions at the VERY TOP of our leadership.

However, its imperative that this get investigated and debunked ( or proven ) asap. And i mean ASAP.

My long standing fear since Trump announced his candidacy and refused to issue his Tax Returns has been his ties with Russian money. Big Russian money. Which inevitably means Big Russian politicos.

I am withholding any comments until this story has fleshed itself out. I refuse to speculate what it does or can mean. I refuse to pick a side until investigations are complete.

But i can tell you that i cannot help but lean to the "there is some truth here" side because of the inherent and consistent secrecy from Trump side for pasy 18 months when it comes to his ties to Russia.

The golden shower part of this story might be made up. We can only hope it is.

It doesn't discredit the story about the Russians having a blackmail file on Trump though.

Also, the reddit link you posted doesn't do provide any evidence that discredits the golden shower part of the story.
