That should tell you that the swamp is much deeper and full of sludge than anyone could have imagined.
The swamp is both parties.
The swamp needs to be drained, flushed, cleaned, and filled with concrete.
We need to start over.

Of course we know why.
I know you can read. Are you just being lazy?

Again...See. My. Post.



Ah forget it, I'll quote it for you:

Did I, personally? Well, considering I didn't vote for Trump (and never, at any moment, ever considered it), the answer would be "no".

Did others? I would think it would be naive to assume that the divisive (and often false) content spread by these trolls/bots did not have an effect on swinging some votes. And when you're talking about margins that are measured in the thousands in some states, these swings could be significant.

I would never argue that HRC lost because of Russian influence (it is impossible to know, and we don't have another Earth to run that experiment on) - but it is not a great leap of faith to see that the power of manipulation had an effect (there are many examples of HUGE engagement numbers of divisive, disingenuous, and false content spread by Russian trolls/bot accounts).




If you would like to link me to some evidence or data that suggested that voting booths or tallies were hacked, I am all ears, though.

It's been a year, and still this fraud has not produced a single shred of proof:

All he was doing was being Donald Trump, who has to play his silly games, rather that acting like a sane, mature human being, who is charged with trying to make EVERY AMERICAN happy, not just his core. He was playing to that core when he tried to force the States to do a lot of work that wasn't needed, because the idiot still thinks he is campaigning.


Right now we are up to our frickin' eyeballs in investigations, the last thing we need is another one.
Lol, you sure don't mince words don, nice reply.

Lol have you been to North Dakota?? Trump is still massively popular here and even our most liberal politician has worked with President Trump.

It has nothing to do with the swamp and everything to do with a lack of knowledge from Trump. His requests were actually against state laws in some states and even impossible. Even if North Dakota wanted to comply, there is no voter registration here. There is nothing for us to hand over even if we wanted to, which we didn’t.

"White House: Trump signs order dissolving controversial election fraud commission after states buck information requests."


The White House announced Wednesday that President Trump is dissolving his voter fraud commission after states failed to hand over requested information.

“Despite substantial evidence of voter fraud, many states have refused to provide the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity with basic information relevant to its inquiry,” Trump said in a statement released by the White House.

“Rather than engage in endless legal battles at taxpayer expense, today I signed an executive order to dissolve the Commission, and have asked the Department of Homeland Security to review these issues and determine next courses of action.”
Trump created the bipartisan commission by executive order in May. The president has claimed without evidence that thousands of people voted illegally in the 2016 election.



More winning, right?
This is the first step toward admission that the claim was nonsense.

I wonder if breaking with Bannon let the scales fall from Trump's eyes.

No that is not why they hate him, that's your personal take on things. It's way way more than that,

Kinda fishy you have to admit, when an id is not required to vote. For practically everything else some proof of identification is required, just not at the polling stations. Everyone , regardless of political stripe, should welcome fair and honest voting system. That is of course if there is nothing to hide.

Agreed.

He picks up an idea from social media, repeats it, then it has a life of it's own. Total fabrication and Trump fell for it, probably because he knew he did not get the popular vote and he needed the claim to explain away the humiliation and salve his fragile ego.

Amen.
Some of you people get it, and realize it's not a pro Trump or anti Trump issue. It's about having an honest system.
