Why the Electoral College won't stop Trump

"I think the Democrats are putting it out because they suffered one of the greatest defeats in the history of politics in this country", Trump told Fox News' Chris Wallace.

"It is not at all clear to me, just viewing this from the outside, that this hacking into the DNC and the RNC was not a false flag operation", Bolton said. Through sophisticated cyber-mischief and Lord knows what else, Russian Federation tinkered with our election. That should send chills down American spines, regardless of political leaning.

"These are all very different types of people", he said.

In 2008, Donald Trump Jr. admitted that "Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets".

This is all in response to reports the Central Intelligence Agency has identified people connected to the Russian government who hacked emails from Democrats and gave them to WikiLeaks.

The resistance from Trump isn't a surprise. Billions of dollars are at stake if sanctions surrounding Russia's thuggish behavior in the Ukraine are eased or lifted.

As the final seconds ticked off, James stood at midcourt and spun the ball on his index finger as the crowd roared. Charlotte had cut its 19-point deficit to three late in the third before James crushed its comeback hopes.

Indeed that the steady flow of emails by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange were nicked from Clinton's account as well as those of her Campaign Chairman John Podesta and other Clinton confidante lent credence to the notion that the former Secretary of State was targeted and that her opponent Trump might benefit.

He recounted Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, said Baltic nation leaders were nervous about Moscow and pointedly praised North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, the alliance that Mr Trump criticised repeatedly during his campaign.

In a democracy, few things are as important as ensuring the fairness of the electoral process, since without open and fair elections the public may well doubt the authority of those who seek to govern. By August 2016, Manafort was replaced.

The report poured scorn on the CIA's assessment, saying it offered no proof and compared to claims Saddam Hussein had WMD's in Iraq - which is exactly what Trump had said in his response to the news as well. Self-described Russian Federation wonk, Politico reporter Julia Ioffe dove in on Page during an exhaustive September expose. She concludes that "the American press has been twisting itself in knots trying to explain men like Carter Page and Paul Manafort, and, through them, to answer the questions of whether Putin is trying to destroy America by their hands, and is Trump a Kremlin stooge or a just a useful idiot, and is there even a difference?"

The issue is raising red flags among lawmakers concerned about the sanctity of the USA voting system and potentially straining relations at the start of Trump's administration.

"We are not so powerful", said Klimov. Sorry, nothing new here, nothing to report.

Mistrial in 'open and shut' police shooting stuns observers
It's a vague standard that, for the most part, most of us can live with because we appreciate the unsafe work that officers do. A police report stated that police officers attempted to administer CPR on Scott, but that is not evident on the video.

Early in the company's efforts to gain access to the Russian market, Tillerson cut a deal with state-owned Rosneft. As ExxonMobil's head, he maintained close ties with Russian Federation and was awarded by President Vladimir Putin with the Order of Friendship in 2013, an honour for a foreign citizen.

Throughout the Cold War, the US approach toward the Soviet Union, and worldwide relations in general, was encapsulated in 1948 by Republican Sen.

At the heart of the matter is the issue of cybersecurity, with intelligence officials saying that hackers directed by Russian Federation engaged in covert activities meant to interfere with the US election. "We further require a briefing on all investigative findings, as these matters directly impact the core factors in our deliberations of whether Mr. Trump is fit to serve as President of the United States".

Tillerson has been good buddies with Vlad Putin and Russian Federation for decades. The Wall Street Journal reported on December 10 that in 2011, ExxonMobil began a $500 BILLION partnership with Rosneft. As ExxonMobil's head, he maintained close ties with Russian Federation and was awarded by Putin with the Order of Friendship in 2013, an honor for a foreign citizen.

Tillerson opposed American sanctions of Russian Federation, calling them ineffective. On Sunday, a bipartisan group of senators, including Republicans John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of SC and Democrats Charles Schumer of NY and Jack Reed of Rhode Island, called for investigations into the cyberattacks. The American people deserve a full airing of Russia's mischief.
