Breaking: House Intel Committee Finds Putin Did NOT Try to Get Trump Elected
The House Intelligence Committee has found no evidence of the Trump campaign colluding with Russia reports the Western Journal.

“We have found no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” reads an overview of a committee report, which was released Monday.
CNN reported that the Intelligence Committee’s investigation has lasted for over a year and included 73 witnesses and the review of approximately 300,000 pages of documents.

Among those who appeared before the panel were Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Hope Hicks, Steve Bannon, and most recently, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

The Republican majority has already completed a draft of the committee’s findings, which will be submitted to Democrats on Tuesday for comment.
The committee determined the main purpose of Russia’s attempt to influence the election was to sow discord.
GOP lawmakers did not reach the same conclusion as the Obama administration intelligence community’s January 2017 assessment that President Vladimir Putin had a “clear preference” for Trump over Hillary Clinton, though it did agree with most of the other findings of the assessment.
According to NBC News, the committee’s report found that to the extent Russians acted on behalf of either candidate, it was for Clinton, citing the Trump-Russia dossier.

“Clearly the dossier would have hurt him and helped her,” said GOP Rep Mike Conaway, who was leading the Intelligence Committee’s Russia investigation. “We don’t have any evidence that the Clinton campaign itself or the DNC knew what was going on. There (were) some cutouts, so to speak.”


Intelligence Committee ranking member Rep. Adam Schiff objected to the committee concluding its inquiry.
In a statement, Schiff described the probe concluding as “another tragic milestone for this Congress, and represents yet another capitulation to the executive branch.”

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te deëscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
