With the liberal left in an absolutely apoplectic meltdown over President Trump’s Monday meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, a mass of many intriguing questions — answers of which would be hypocritical — arise for those seemingly seething with rage.

On Friday, when Mr. Trump was in London meeting with United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May and then with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, special counsel Robert Mueller charged a dozen Russian intelligence officers with hacking the computers of the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Clinton campaign.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made the announcement.

While the alleged hacking did not alter the election outcome, the announcement placed the alleged Russian election meddling front and center ahead of the Trump-Putin summit and brought calls, for example, from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and others for Mr. Trump to cancel his Monday meeting with Mr. Putin.

Writing that the timing of Mr. Mueller’s indictments “did his reputation for nonpartisanship no service,” Wall Street Journal columnist Holman W. Jenkins Jr. also said:

“This is the same Mr. Mueller who, as FBI chief, sat for five years on the indictment of a Russian uranium executive when it would have been embarrassing to Mr. Obama’s own Russian rapprochement — and doubly embarrassing to his secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, because of the connection of the Clinton Foundation to the Russian uranium business in question.”

Mr. Mueller’s timing also came one day after the FBI’s lead Russia investigator, agent Peter Strzok, spent 10 hours testifying in a heated joint House committee hearing during which he defended himself from attacks from congressional Republicans that his political views, critical of then candidate Donald Trump, influenced the probe of Russia’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Until a Justice Department inspector general uncovered compromising messages about his political bias with FBI agent Lisa Page, with whom he was having an adulterous affair, Mr. Strzok worked on Mr. Mueller’s team.

During the hearing, Committee chairman, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, made a stunning announcement: FBI investigators were told that Mrs. Clinton’s emails including many that contained classified information, had been surreptitiously forwarded to a “foreign entity” unrelated to Russia.

Mr. Gohmert said the FBI investigators, which included Mr. Strzok, “found this anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list. It was a compartmentalized bit of information that was sending it to an unauthorized source … that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia ….”

And the FBI agents did nothing.

“The FBI investigators who were allegedly conducting a thorough, unbiased, professional probe into Clinton’s mishandling of classified materials ignored it,” said Investor’s Business Daily.

And when Mr. Gohmert made his announcement, the mainstream, liberal Democrat media did exactly what the FBI agents did — nothing. They totally ignored it.

The hypocrisy that abounds with the liberal left knows no bounds.

“The disinterest shown by the FBI,” said IBD, “at this revelation is simply astounding. The entire purpose of the investigation was to determine whether Clinton had broken the law by being ‘grossly negligent’ in her handling of classified material. All of her emails ending up in the hands of a ‘foreign entity’ would — by any honest estimation — constitute gross negligence. … It adds further evidence that the Clinton email investigation — and most likely the Trump/Russian investigation — was seriously compromised by political bias.”

Obviously it was! And is!

The FBI never examined the computers of the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Clinton campaign that Mr. Mueller says the 12 Russians supposedly hacked. Why not? Why didn’t the Democrats and the Obama administration insist that the FBI examine these computers? Were they hiding incriminating evidence? Was the evidence anti-American?

Mentioning the indictments of the 12 phantom hackers, Brian Joondeph, a Denver-based physician, points out that they are simply accusations, not verdicts in a court of law. “Announced the last business day before Trump’s Russian summit, what a coincidence of timing, painting Trump in a box where he has to either validate the Russian collusion narrative or question the veracity of the U.S. intelligence community. Always the contrarian, he chose the later option during his press conference with Putin.”

Any why not? The American intelligence services — FBI, CIA, DOJ, NSA and NI —formed the nucleus of a corrupt political culture and conspired to spy on Mr. Trump’s campaign and undermine his election and then tried to overturn his presidency. All of which is absolutely anti-American.

This editorial is a complete pack of lies!

Evidently, the Right Wing Times pays no attention to Fox News as they too, along with many Republican leaders and writers (John McCain and George Will for example) have criticized King Donald for the way he threw America under the bus to appease Putin, the former KGB agent. And now, he wants to have Putin in the White House! Face it, the man is a traitor and no amount of editorial praise from the Right Wing Times is going to change that.

Great editorial! Amazing that none of the Democrat regular supporters have not responded with their remarks explaining their critical review of this editorial. Could it be that they realize that there is no way to support their review? My hope is that for once they are honestly thinking and considering this and just maybe their eyes will open.

President Obama was overheard on an open mic giving outgoing Russian President Medevev a candid political assessment of his ability to deal with relations between the U.S. and Russia, saying he would have more flexibility after the election. Bill Plante reports.

Imus; chill out man. Just how did Trump throw America under a bus. Be specific if you can. It is going to turn out that there are more than a few players in the dirty tricks game. As far as Vlad visiting us, great. If they are visiting and talking they are not shooting. Need more of this, not less. Will something good and lasting come from this? Don’t know, I hope so. Gotta keep trying.

I grew up in Goldsboro, NC, home of Seymour Johnson AFB. The United States was threatened on a daily basis by Russian Communist Thugs. Only our USAF Strategic Air Command protected the continental US. Anyone who thinks that Russia is "Our Pal," is severely deluded. Russia may well be Trump's pal, promising, who knows what to Trump, personally. If YOU are not one of the one tenth of the One Percent, YOU will not benefit from Trump's secret deals w/ Putin. YOU will be a PEASANT. Being a PEASANT really SUCKS, as you will soon learn.

Sending my thanks to the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces who have protected this great country, both then and now, from ALL enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Believe the closest we've come to getting in a hot one with them was the Cuban Missile Crisis. It was probably a lot closer than some think who are old enough to remember. If you are old enough and didn't fathom its imminent possibility your fear of nuclear war is not logical. If you are not old enough or weren't around you would be wise to believe talking with a nuclear rival, enemy, or however you choose to describe them is much smarter? Don't you think? Or maybe like all those other Trump haters your hatred for one man is too great to get it. To this point in time we have lived with and talked with much greater evil than Putin. You and your ilk need to wise up.

Wait, DC, i do remember one a bit more scary , remember that movie , um, a while back, about the boxer that went to Russia, to train and fight a Russian?

Come on Scrooge, have you not heard the adage “ keep your friends close and your enemies even closer”? Not an exact rendering but you do get the point, do you not? This game of life can take strange twists and turns as it plays out. Has to be a game plan out there Not privy to us all, has to be.

So far we've had a lot fewer casualties under him than the previous two who will give him no credit but will badmouth him especially BO. It may change in a heart beat but until then we need to be thankful and give him a chance to carry out his vision for keeping us safe from a dangerous world.

Talking with a major nuclear power isn't nearly as dangerous and scary as what happened in 1961 when that B-52 with its payload went down near Goldsboro.

Guess the question of the week is should outgoing federal officials be allowed to keep their various security clearances after no longer in office? Have my own views on this and a tiny bit of on the job learning but would like to hear you guy’s take.

dc

It would seem logical that once you leave (including retirement) a job that requires a specific clearance it would be terminated. Then if you took another job requiring same or difference clearance it would require an update.
