    So, you believe in Fox and Putin over CNN and other news sources that I have read and heard, plus you seriously don't think that Putin was trying to "influence" the election in Trump's favor, whereas out 17 intelligence agencies and Mueller have concluded otherwise?

    Its not only CNN that carried the same story and they are pretty much in agreement. Apparently the safety of the asset was compromised by Loose Lips himself.

    No I will believe what the CIA said about the CNN Story. The extraordinary CIA rebuke came as The New York Times published a bombshell piece late in the evening, which largely contradicted CNN's reporting. According to the Times, CIA officials "made the arduous decision in late 2016 to offer to extract the source from Russia" — weeks before Trump even took office.

    CNN= Comedy News Network.

    Yeah, you have to be pretty gullible to believe the CIA's account about one of their spies!!

    Seem's you have a problem digesting facts.

    According to the Times, CIA officials "made the arduous decision in late 2016 to offer to extract the source from Russia" — weeks before Trump even took office.

    Let's see, who now has administrative control over the CIA?

    And Fox is for those who really don't want the news but only want to be told that their cute little conservatives. Except they ain't conservatives and they certainly ain't cute.

    So, why are you so willing to accept the Fox story and yet then also willing to accept Trump's taking Putin's word over our 17 intelligence agencies and Mueller's report? Is it "the ends justify the means", whereas as long as Trump got elected who cares how he got in?

    And since some of the information came from military-intelligence sources, how could you justify this position seeing that you're a vet? Trump loves Putin and continually defends him, so how is that in any way justifiable for one who's supposedly "America First"? Why would an American who loves America cater to Trump's utterly traitorous defense of those who wish us only harm and are willing to act on it?

    To me, your position is just utterly mind boggling. And, again to me, one can feel strongly about having American security, or one can blindly believe in Trump, but one simply cannot do both. This is not about partisan politics-- it's about whether we want enough security for our country that we don't want any foreign power to jeopardize it, including securing our electioneering process.

    So?

    I really don't understand the argument you are trying to make in your OP.

    Well, given your penchant for putting someone on ignore and or refusing to continue a discussion when the facts don't agree with your position maybe I should reciprocate. However, you do provide a source of amusement as in this case and others. Have a nice day.

    Cool story. You'll believe anything.
    The CNN story isn't retracted, so you're saying it's fake? What's fake?
    Trump is the kind of person that speaks without thinking. I think the story is most likely accurate.

    Given your source of radical RW media, I'll side the with the reporting at CNN. Only interested in facts, not some paid RW shill

    Additionally, the information came from the WH and was sent to CNN.

    RW'rs are really grasping these days. Even Rush today was inventing new conspiracy theories about the new Iphone triple-camera. Whining about those evil America-hating libruls. All day long, brainwashing the sheeble.

    Jeff Zuckerberg of CNN was caught on video admitting the Russia narrative was "mostly bulls**t" and was "for ratings" long before this.

    Do you believe the CIA when they said the Russians interfered in the election and tried to help Trump get elected?

    My mistake, it was CNN producer John Bonifield, with all these fake news peddlers it's hard to keep track.

    Suggesting that in their experience and expertise the danger to the asset was clear as well as identifying the source.
