Jesus. You truly are legitimately ill.

What a special warm and squishy place it must be in that noggin of yours.

Go back and read the title of the original NYT article.

Here. Let me make it easy for you...

Manafort Accused of Sharing Trump Polling Data With Russian Associate.

And that is EXACTLY what happened. He shared secret Trump campaign info with a Russian with ties to Russian intelligence. What you are spewing is a subset of info that doesn't change the top line story.

Stop being such a ridiculous donkey. Seriously. It's not cute.

It doesn't matter where the info went from there. Konstantin Kolimnik could have crumpled the info up and shoved it straight up his ass. It doesn't change what Trump's CAMPAIGN MANAGER did.

You sound exactly like a Russian troll farm trying to spin facts into bullshite. But actually that's exactly what you do now, isn't it. Of course it is. And you know it.

Manafort offered to give Russian billionaire ‘private briefings’ on 2016 campaign

Wait, isn't Deripaska that same guy that Trump's Treasury department is trying reduced sanctions on companies he controls??

I for one certainly believe Mnuchin when he says “These entities are undergoing significant restructuring and governance changes that sever Deripaska’s control and significantly diminish his ownership.”

Nooo, he's just a concerned "Australian Citizen" with a USA fetish; someone with a genuine concern for the Trump campaigns' welfare and all those 'false' accusations people have made about 'imaginary' interactions with all those 'Russians'. :rolling:

Is he actually an Australian citizen? I thought he was a South African citizen.

I am dumbfounded as to why air traffic controllers are in the "we can't pay you, but you have to work" section of the government. Seems like they would be in the "we want you focused on your job, not your bills" group. I mean didn't they all watch season 2 of Breaking Bad?

Seriously, the government needs to look into making ATC jobs un-closeable.

The same could be said about the TSA agents. Most games of us would like to board planes free of guns and explosives.

True.

You'd think more regular people would be upset by the FDA not inspecting food, but . . . 'Merica. :(

Interesting times, no president in history has ever been called upon to deny working for a hostile foreign power until now.

Wonder if semantics are at play here, "working for" the Russians is not the same as "working with" the Russians.

Dump is looking to revoke the sanctions on Deripaska's businesses for one reason and one reason only. Because his boss, Turdnugget, wants it.

From the Independent...

As a result, US officials said there is no detailed record, even in classified files, of Mr. Trump's face-to-face interactions with the Russian leader at five locations over the past two years. Such a gap would be unusual in any presidency, let alone one that Russia sought to install through what US intelligence agencies have described as an unprecedented campaign of election interference.
