Trump Responds To Russia Indictment: "Where Is The DNC Server? Why Didn't Obama Do Something?"

President Trump issued his first public comment about the indictment of 12 Russian military officers "for conspiring to interfere with the 2016 presidential election" by blaming former President Obama and the "deep state" and asking, as many others have, where the DNC server, the so-called "Exhibit A" in the case against the Russian hackers, is currently.

On Saturday morning, Trump tweeted from Scotland that "The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration" and asked “why didn’t they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September, before the Election?" As one of his last acts as president, late in December 2016 and over a month after Trump had won the election, Obama issued sanctions against Russia for the meddling. He also expelled 35 Russian diplomats from the U.S. and ordered two Russian compounds to be closed.

On Friday afternoon, the DOJ announced the indictment of 12 Russian intel officials who are charged with hacking Democratic National Committee officials and dispersing the stolen documents online. However, as explicitly stated in the indictment, there was "no indication that any American was a knowing participant in this activity, and no indication that these efforts altered the vote count in any way", something Trump has repeatedly noted.

Trump then went on to question "where is the DNC Server, and why didn’t the FBI take possession of it?” He suggested that the server could have been kept hidden by the “Deep State.”

Trump has suggested in the past a conspiracy around the computer servers at the DNC that Russians hacked during the election. The FBI had not directly assessed the hacked server during the agency investigation, instead relying on information from a private security firm, with deep Ukrainian ties.

Separately, as part of his Saturday tweetstorm, Trump again attacked "the Fake News CNN" saying that he checked it "first time in a long time (they are dying in the ratings), to see if they covered my takedown yesterday of Jim Acosta (actually a nice guy). They didn’t! But they did say I already lost in my meeting with Putin. Fake News...."

He then unveiled his latest nickname, that of CNN president Jeff Zucker, saying "Remember, it was Little Jeff Z and his people, who are told exactly what to say, who said I could not win the election in that “there was no way to 270” (over & over again) in the Electoral College. I got 306! They were sooooo wrong in their election coverage. Still hurting!"

Finally, in his first tweet about about the market in a long time, Trump once again took credit for the Dow hitting 25,000, as well as the current state of the fiscal-stimulus fueled economy, saying "Jobs are at an all time record - and that is before we fix some of the worst trade deals and conditions ever seen by any government. It is all happening!"

As discussed previously, Trump's market assessment remain a concern to some, because the higher the stock market goes, the more likely the president is to equate this with investor perceptions of his trade policy. As a result, it affords Trump leeway to unleash even harsher tariffs on China, something he has kept silent about in the past 4 days, enabling the latest market surge.

order a full IC review of Clappers report.

Jesus Christ -  Clapper’s report was *bullshit* - he and Brennan got together and tried to blame Russians for a hack SO PEOPLE/MEDIA WOULD NOT PAY ATTENTION TO THE CONTENT OF THE EMAILS.  

The same media that never seems to find evidence of Saudi or Israeli ‘meddling.’

 

There was no hack.  It was a leak.  Why not talk to Binney and McGovern. Talk to Craig Murray.  Talk to Assange and Kim Dot Com.

Strozk’s FBI didnt... which speaks volumes.

Oh, and a real investigation of Hillary’s illegal server is needed.

The Awan bros were probably ultimately spying for Israel, and DWS their handler.  We’ll never get a full investigation there.

Yes it was Obama’s fault Trump asked Russia to hack our election ... and that would’ve derailed the campaign had it came out ... that’s what this I said all about .... why didn’t they ruin his campaign after he asked Russia to interfere in our elections and they obliged ... they are the corrupt ones for acting professionally amongst my treason ... the deepest of states

What server?

The People

The Media

The FBI

Fill in the blank...

So the Government's position is that the Russians hacked a server the DNC refuse to allow the FBI to examine, and did not hack an unsecured server in Hillary's closet that she hid from the FBI, nor Boy wonder's Lap top which was discovered by the NYP, then gave the principals immunity, to explain why all that smoke had no fire.

Maybe they're talking about the Congressional servers, that they were hacked, by Pakistan, or is it the laptop the Capital Police took from Wasserman and refuses to return?

Oh What a FUBARed mess!

Fact: The DNC Server was never inspected by a controlling ruling authority within the government

Fact: This indictment asserts the Russian's hacked the DNC

Summation: This indictment is bullshit because it's based on a lie

 

BTW, FACT: everything related to this indictment occurred under obama who did NOTHING to slow, or prevent it and there is nothing connected to the Trump campaign, or presidency that connects it to him, so move along Lib's and NEVER Trumper's.....

are we there yet Tarzan Sat, 07/14/2018 - 12:07 Permalink

All indications are that both Hillary's home server, and the DNC server were hacked or leaked by independent multiple sources. Their server security was apparently below a Starbucks computer server. Not to mention the late Seith Rich murder. The criminal content of the emails are being hidden or slow leaked still. Russia or Wakunda for that matter, would be doing the US public a service if they showed us what the deep state is hiding from the US voting public.

No, Freeze These is a toxic, miserable, sad excuse of a troll living in the basement of his mommy's apartment, who primarily masturbates & eats, between posting his inane/lame-ass troll-thoughs on ZH.  If he was a happy-productive person, he'd have a real job & wouldn't have so much time to do this. A real pseudo-intellectual, sad-person.

DNC server wasn’t hacked. DNC staffer Seth Rich transferred files by USB to Wikileaks before being murdered mysteriously (cough... Clintons)

 

Every news agency continues to report the Russians hacked the DNC server, but evidence shows the files were transferred at download speeds only possible by a USB device directly connected to the server.

 

However, somehow I doubt this evidence will be in Mueller’s report.

Well, if you'd stop daydreaming about your fantasy porn session with Obama and Hillary, you'd be able to see the FBI is currently run by a bunch of corrupt deep state bastards!

Meanwhile in other news:  "Mouse Boy" Sessions was observed spending most of the day decorating his office space with more anti-pot posters.  When asked about the Russian indictment, he responded, "Oh, I don't get involved with that, you'll have to ask Rod."

Fuckers, all of 'em!

...ya, you stupid ... are smarter than the FBI...your stupidity amazes me, and republicans....idiots......

From what I've seen of the brightest the FBI has to offer these past couple days, I'd say it doesn't take much to compete.

And sure, I realize this is fight club and all, but please, bring something more to the fight, your efforts are absolutely pathetic.

You work for the FBI?

Politicizing the fact that the alphabet agencies operate autonomously isn't effective when used to support your argument. The Feral Bureau of Instigation is and was corrupt. Since it operates autonomously the results will be very much the same whichever part lays claim to the throne. Does agitation win anyone over to your side? I reckon not. Dumb ass.

i'm not trying to win people to my side...i don't want trumptards on my side...don't want racist on my side...i'm not trying to change anyone's mind...just venting at how fucking stupid the people who support the puppet in chief are...how ridiculously hypocritical they are...how easily they are led by liars...

Democrats are liars too....but not like republicans...and the problem with the trumptards is that they can't even admit the the fucking goof in the WH ever lies...it's like they think he's a god...a bunch of fuckin weak minded cult followers....

guns, no health care, no fags, no niggers, no arabs no jews.....it's so predictable, yet somehow, they call themselves awake...

it's a really disgusting time for america and the world...

Not necessarily smarter, but certainly we have an agenda contrary to theirs. The FBI interference in too many elections always to benefit the non-republican is testimony to who controls them. They have colluded in at least two elections just in Alaska, with one phony collusion resulting later in the death of a former senator, falsely accused of crimes by the FBI. That is just one of many agencies, tools of the Democrats, that needs to be shut down. We did fine in this country without any federal agency like the FBI.
