Trump Responds: Mueller Indictment Shows "Campaign Did Nothing Wrong. No Collusion!"

Russia wasted no time responding to today's surprising DOJ charge which found not Russia collusion, but what some have described as criminal trolling: "13 people interfered in the US elections?! 13 against an intelligence services budget of billions? Against intelligence and counterintelligence, against the latest developments and technologies? Absurd? Yes" Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharaova wrote on Facebook.

And then, shortly after 3pm, in his first official response which also took place on a social network, in this case his favorite Twitter, President Trump also responded to the DOJ, stating that because "Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President" and  because "the results of the election were not impacted" then "The Trump campaign did nothing wrong - no collusion!"

And while Trump can celebrate for now, earlier in the afternoon, the top House Intel Committee Democrat Schiff laid out what the next angle of attack will be in the special counsel probe:

"The indictment leaves open the vital question of whether Americans, including any associated with the Trump campaign, knowingly played a role in Russia’s active measures campaign.”

We expect the answer will be unveiled shortly, especially after yesterday's news that Mueller managed to flip a third witness in the Russia probe...

He didn't mention that it may have been in response to the US meddling in Russian elections.  What's good for the goose is good for the gander.  They were so desperate over at FOX that they were running video of Greek riots and claiming it was footage of protests against Putin in Russia.

The "Spoofing" or Digital Finger Print & Parallel Construction tools that can be used against Governments, Individuals, enemies & adversaries are Chilling.

 

The CIA can not only hack into anything -- they can download any "evidence" they want onto your phone or computer.  Child pornography, national secrets, you name it.  Then they can blackmail you, threatening prosecution for whatever crap they have planted, then "found" on your computer.    They can also "spoof" the source of such downloads -- for instance, if they want to "prove" that something on your computer (or Donald Trump's computer) came from a "Russian source"  -- they can spoof the IP address of a Russian source.

 

The take-away:  no digital evidence the CIA or NSA produces on any subject whatsoever can be trusted.  No digital evidence should be acceptable in any case where the government has an interest, because they have the complete ability to fabricate and implant any evidence on any iphone or computer.  And worse:  they have intentionally created these digital vulnerabilities and pushed them onto the whole world via Microsoft and Google.     Government has long been at war with liberty, claiming that we need to give up liberty to be secure.  Now we learn that they have been deliberately sabotaging our security, in order to augment their own power.  Time to shut down the CIA and all the other spy agencies.  They're not keeping us free OR secure, and they're doing it deliberately.  Their main function nowadays seems to be lying us into wars against countries that never attacked us, and had no plans to do so.

Whoops, it's going to get a hell of a lot harder not to get arrested in foreign countries posing as a tourist but actually there to interfere in their election.  Drat.

Does everyone forget the Muslims in Gaza in 2008 saturating U.S. social media with their pro-Obama interference, and making a million phone calls direct to U.S. registered voters too?  The liberal Left and MSM loved that at the time.

...but ....O'bumer, o'bumer, told us it was impossible for the Ruskies to interfere...

That's it JAV, you've just been outed. Who's paying your rent? It's more than obvious you're trying to sway me, Mr. Unwitting into a frame of mind to distrust this multi-million dollar conclusion that other Mr. and Mrs. Unwittings have declared to prevent "Crooked Hillary" from sleeping in Lincoln's bedroom, (or renting it out to other like minded individuals).

I see your 2 shekels and raise you 2 more. (not that I actually have them, just {hope and} Trust me)

jmo.

Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President. The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump campaign did nothing wrong - no collusion!

Mr. President... Go find Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal for a "three way" in your furnished "condo" and announce your "early retirement"!... I have this feeling you are much better at those sorts of activities than running a business with Saudi loans to keep you from bankruptcy or your own Country that is severely in debt and trying very hard to start a World War!!!
