Will Trump Become President?

THIS is tough stuff………(CNN)Classified documents presented last week to President Obama and President-elect Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.”

Is the following info Putin’s great “GOTCHA!” to America?   He might have been responsible for Hillary’s damaging information and a lot of us asked “Could he do it to the Republicans?”  And, voila!  Just days before an inauguration!?

“These senior intelligence officials also included the synopsis to demonstrate that Russia had compiled information potentially harmful to both political parties, but only released information damaging to Hillary Clinton and Democrats. This synopsis was not an official part of the report from the intelligence community case about Russian hacks, but some officials said it augmented the evidence that Moscow intended to harm Clinton’s candidacy and help Trump’s, several officials with knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.”

A discussion I heard on this included how there might be Trump surrogate emails with Russia about the damaging info on Hillary.  There’s ‘salacious’ information on Trump, too, but the information of Trump and his part in keeping Hillary from winning, and his financial situations with Russia might be really BAD, worse than any salacious stuff.

There’s a video of the discussion on CNN on the link….I know, I know, you hate CNN,  you hate Don Lemon, you hate Carl Bernstein, etc etc., but I urge you to listen.  The information is compelling on one hand;  I’m inclined not to believe one word of it, on the other hand.

If the information is bad enough and it’s out before Trump’s inauguration, would we get Mike Pence for President or would there be a whole new election?

  1. I can’t speak to the fidelity of the information in this case, though I find the premise that Russia has something on Trump, quite plausible…given that he’s dismissed out of hand, reports of Russian espionage, prior to receiving any intelligence on the subject; as well as his otherwise fawning commentary for Putin.

    I predict that the camp that would otherwise say, hold your fire and let the information develop……will jerk their knees towards the intelligence community and latching on to the Trump tweet [of course] that it’s some sort of political witch-hunt. The irony being that the majority of Americans know more about the Kardashians than they do about the IC.

    As much as I’d prefer Pence over someone who acts like a jilted 13 year old girl on Twitter….I don’t see this derailing the new Administration….unless something more concrete comes out….like finding out Russia holds a kings ransom in Trump debt.

    Not to worry, Z. Whatever dirt the Rooskies have on Trump will keep. They will sit on it and hold it over The Donald’s head as they negotiate their various positions. It’s called leverage, something The Donald understands better than most.

    No, Vice President Pence is staying right where he’s at. Trump will assume the Oval Office, and the Rooskies will begin their new U.S. relationship with an unusual vigor.

    As ol’ Tip O’Neal once said: ‘politics ain’t beanbag.’


  3. Apparently internet nerds at “4chan” are claiming credit for this report as a “prank”. Could be…..but it’s also evil genius to manufacture obvious “pranks” such as this….in order to deflect credibility on future accurate-but-damning information.

    We could really do without the drama……


  4. Like CI, I’m weary of all the drama.

    In his speech last night, BHO said that Trump was “freely and fairly elected.”

    So, what is the truth?


  5. According to NBC News, the “information” is unverified.


  6. jerrydablade says:

    Teflon. He’s rubber, they’re glue. You get my point. I think it’s just silly desperation from the butthurt libs. Trump will be president come Jan 20. However, I have no doubt the left will re-focus from de-legitimizing attempts to impeachment.


  7. geeez2014 says:

    CI..thanks. I prefer Pence, too. And I find this plausible, too. The great “GOTCHA” by Putin…well timed, well planned.
    Just saw your second comment….As much as I know CNN has become a “hate Trump Machine”, dedicated to nothing else but making him look even more awful, I doubt this could be a prank, but I SO HOPE SO, because yes!! We just don’t NEED DRAMA! Couldn’t agree with you more.

    fredd…but the information is KNOWN now…on a long report that even McCain and some other Americans have…not to mention CIA, NSA,etc. It’s known….some say there’s a pdf with this information that’s out there…

    AOW….you LISTENED? I’m proud of you. I couldn’t watch Obama….”Freely and fairly”? Obama’s now on a legacy parade…trying to sound SO even handed, SO fair…when most of what he’s done is slam FOX, slam Republicans and lie about them “they have nothing”, etc etc. yuck

    Jerry…I think you’re right; the left will NEVER stop their focus on destroying Trump. If he’d STOP TWEETING, it’d make them look even WORSE, but his tweets are so silly and childlike that it makes them look right, sadly.


  8. geeez2014 says:

    Kid….I was just reading your link when FOX quoted BUZZFEED….!!!
    How credible IS Buzzfeed? I’ve barely heard of them. I guess I should have…or I HAVE but not ever looked at their blog.

    Oh, BROTHER, would I LOVE to have this all blown out of the water…particularly to put REAL egg on CNN’s face.

    THANK YOU, ALL, for having Googled this stuff and added to what I got…


  9. geeez2014 says:


    One thing for sure, or so it seems….our Intel IS investigating…..

    Trump is going to do a press conference; some are saying it’s to get everyone off the negative stuff….Oh, please, God, let him appear presidential, let him NOT take the bait and appear as thin skinned as he seems. LET PEOPLE BE ENCOURAGED BY THIS PRESS CONFERENCE (that would include MEEEEE!) 🙂


  10. cube says:

    CNN was, and still is, very buttsore over Trump’s victory. Considering the source, I would hold off on any opinions until there is proof of any exclusive claims.


  11. Kid says:

    Z, I don’t know much about them, but the report does seem pretty flakey.


  12. geeez2014 says:


    OFF TOPIC, did y’all see that? Booker praises Sessions for civil rights work, but testifies against Sessions as AG because he’s concerned of Sessions’ civil rights record.
    Just wanted to make sure you all take NOTE of this…..


  13. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, not that any of us much admires the NY Times, they’re also saying it’s BS.

    Cube, to watch the video in the link, you’d be pretty convinced.

    Trump is complimenting the media right now for their seeing thru this stuff….

    THE PRESSER IS ON right now…..just sayin’


  14. geeez2014 says:

    GAD!! He said Pharma doesn’t do proper bidding to get prices DOWN and pills made here.;…..if that’s true, he’s so right….it’s not proper, or a lack of, bidding that drives prices up!


  15. geeez2014 says:

    “If anybody on my team had said what Podesta said in emails about Hillary, they’d have been fired”. GOOD REMINDER of what happened inside the Clinton campaign!!

    I’m getting a feeling the press is a tad bit scared to attack Trump! Their questions are a bit tame…
    By the way, does anybody know if he was able to keep certain media venues OUT as he’d suggested before????


  16. Buzzfeed is a partisan news aggregator, like HuffPo and Breitbart. Always a mixed bag…they’re credible…until they’re not.


  17. geeez2014 says:

    CI, Trump slammed Buzzfeed hard just now….but their article says the story is NOT true about him..???


  18. As I understand it, and from skimming the Buzzfeed piece, they published the report with the caveat that they didn’t think it was credible. Even other liberal journalists are criticizing Buzzfeed for even publishing it.


  19. geeez2014 says:

    CI…thanks…I just came back to mention that….they do say it’s probably not credible but Trump’s ticked that they published it at all.
    Good on the liberal journalists who are criticizing Buzzfeed.


  20. geeez2014 says:

    I just saw Booker talk against Sessions on Civil Rights..as I’d linked above, he once complimented him for his work in that field. Nobody’s brought that up. John Lewis also said his apppointment would mean minorities wouldn’t have anybody fighting for them, as if the AG should fight for anything … But 2 Black men are praising Sessions…one almost burst into tears over his kindness toward him and his family.
    Fascinating political theater….


  21. Mal says:

    I only got as far as the source of all this (the Russians) and quit reading the rest. Relax and enjoy the ride, folks! Did any of you watch Trump’s Q & A this a.m.? I thought it went very well; that he has taken extreme, even unnecessary, steps to isolate his businesses from his soon-to-be office.


  22. geeez2014 says:

    Rep Cedric Richmond just issued his profound disappointment that “such a civil rights leader like John Lewis has been handled by this hearing so badly, and all of us have taken note of that.”
    I think he’s mad that Lewis didn’t go first in his testimony against Sessions?


  23. geeez2014 says:

    A black man who’s an advocate for Sessions is telling the truth: We don’t pick AGs to fight for anybody, we pick AGs to stand up for the LAW. He’s RAVING about Jeff Sessions and his friendship, his intelligence, his fair mindedness…
    THIS takes SOME GUTS, folks, for black Americans to stand by Sessions. I am impressed.

    I understand the others, too, but I find them uninformed as to what an AG does, and can only imagine they’d accept no one but a black nominee, which I find deplorable and backwards thinking.


  24. geeez2014 says:

    I love hearing John King say “the way we were taught journalism”…Journalism teachers are rolling in their graves.
    And the downplaying of most of what Trump said in his presser are amusing. It’s like we watched alternate pressers, and you all know how critical I am about Trump, who I thought did a very good job today.
    Not 100%, but very good.!!


  25. Imp says:

    @Z…”GOD REMINDER of what happened inside the Clinton campaign!!”

    Therein is the crux of the issue…they never challenged the veracity of the content…only the fact that it was to their embarrassment ( Veritas and the hired thugs and hit men ) and discredit….released for all to see. And yes….many people probably did change their vote to Trump ( remember over 60% found her unlikeable, untrustworthy, corrupt and dishonest ) which no one could blame them for.

    Besides, most were aghast with Comey’s and the FBI’s cowardly decisions, the tarmac meeting with Lynch and Bubba and Benghazi. It wasn’t lost on voters that under her watch and her determination to avoid FOIA with her unsecured server….that she allowed the ME to be overrun and consumed with war, fire and war, Russia never had a reset and ISIS was more than a “JV” team.. That is until now…Trump and Putin will realize that it serves us all that we recognize that we’re really natural ally’s. I see the US and Russia dominating the energy market while starving the Saudis too. Much to our benefit. And with Exxon / Mobil in the Sec of State….it’s probably very possible with the new Breed.


  26. Imp says:

    “John Lewis also said his apppointment would mean minorities wouldn’t have anybody fighting for them…”
    For what? Reparations and new 50″ Led TV’s….or more welfare. Don’t they have the racist CBC and NAACP, Sharpton the minstrel clown and jesse jjagoff for more yes…black mail? 70% of the people in the world would love to have 1/10 of what the “poor” black here have today. And the freebies. I’m trying hard not to think that 90% of them are such a lost cause that we’ll never… in the next 200 years satisfy any of them. That was another reason Trump won…..yes…the Americans who are taxed and pay for all this have had enough of this whiny bullheet and lack of responsibility. That and 8 more cities burned up…and another year of almost 4,000 shooting in black chi-iraq. Less than 1% of Americans had a slave 200years ago. AND 3500 FREEED MEN had slaves and bred them. Maybe their current ancestors will pay?


  27. Imp says:

    Maybe it’s time for our first Military Coup? Why not….95% of world already has had one or more.


  28. geeez2014 says:

    Imp..”military coup”? Let’s see how it starts out with Trump!
    Anything that starves the Saudis out is something I’m FOR, but I’m not sure we could ever trust Putin anymore….And ya, the nastiness exposed about Hillary, the tarmac meeting, the emails, etc…NONE of that was lost on many Dem voters I know….they all were repulsed. Did they vote for Trump? Not sure, but Hillary ticked off a TON of people …. yippeee! 🙂


  29. geeez2014 says:

    So now RUBIO is saying he might not vote for Tillerson. Legit? Or campaigning again? Looking like the knowledgeable tough guy?


  30. geeez2014 says:

    Cube..ya, I saw that…..It wasn’t a high point in the event for me, but it was powerful! So much really good stuff he said is overlooked now for folks finding fault in his having said this to cnn…dayum!


  31. Z,
    A black man who’s an advocate for Sessions is telling the truth: We don’t pick AGs to fight for anybody, we pick AGs to stand up for the LAW.

    Or to demonize or give a pass to a particular political party.


  32. Imp says:

    AOW..spot on…as Holder in a fat suit and drag has done.


  33. Kid says:

    So, why would CNN run with a story that no ne seems to think is credible. Because they are pukes. They Should be excluded from White House Press until they show some honesty and responsibility. If I were Trump, I’d shut them out at every turn.

    Then you have ABC and the David Muir show who Only showed Trump calling CNN out. Noting of the wonderful other things discussed. Shut them oout too. Shut them all out, and remind America on a daily basis why they are being shut out. No way this kind of media should be accepted.


  34. geeez2014 says:

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNDDDDDDDD America looks at it as Trump censoring the press…they’ve been doing it all day; and ya, it DOES matter because he needs support.; There are ways he could have said it, but he invites trouble. That’s what I HATE.


  35. Kid says:

    Remind America on a daily basis that they are fools if they accept being lied to by a privileged class (media) who’s job it is to vet and investigate and report Honestly. The Washington Times is the only outlet that I think even comes close to what I described. Fox doesn’t cut it either.


  36. Kid says:

    Z, I think they will tackle the problem you verbalize and which I agree with. I offered some hints at how to do that.


  37. Imp says:

    “No way this kind of media should be accepted.”

    You should be in my house tonight with the latest ABC episode of “Black-ish” on. Racisssssmmmm, pure and simple from the black members of this garbage can masquerading as a comedy when it’s no more than a weekly hit job on whites, conservatives and above all Mr. Trump.


  38. Imp says:

    Ann Coulter on “hate” hoaxers…

    Hate crime hoaxers, I don’t think I need to tell you this, but you do NOT want a police investigation. Much better to send anonymous reports into America’s leading hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center, so your story can appear in The New York Times, The Washington Post, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, the “Today” show, “Good Morning America,” etc., etc.


  39. geeez2014 says:

    You guys, there was some professor of Russian something named, I think, Stephen Cohen, who told Carlson tonight that he thinks there’s a giant push in our government to screw Trump before the inauguration or something..
    I Googled and found that from July….FASCINATING…utterly fascinating.


  40. Kid says:

    Z, My gut feeling is there is a lot of money to be made by keeping the cold war going/restarting it and that’s the only reason for all of this, including the politicians chanting “Russia” every few seconds.

    Russia doesn’t have its citizens in the USA plotting terrorist attacks, yet there is no mention in the media about those mutts, except when one of them drives a truck into a crowd of people. I don’t look over my shoulder for Russians, of which there are many living nearby working for P&G on H1B visas, I’m looking for moslem scum.
