We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

You were not supposed to know: Chinese Govt. Killed and Imprisoned 18-20 CIA Spies After Penetrating Hillary Clinton’s Private Server
Display comments as (Linear | Threaded)
Hillary Clinton served as the 67th United States Secretary of State, under President Barack Obama, from 2009 to 2013, overseeing the department that conducted the Foreign policy of Barack Obama.
Sen. Diane Feinstein who had employed a Chinese mole for 20 years -
as Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee at the time — was reportedly mortified when the FBI told her she’d been infiltrated.
Yep. Funny that.
It all goes down the memory hole when dems are involved.
I wonder if this is why China VP (at the time),Xi Jinping, snubbed Hillary (https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/avoiding-dnc-hillary-clinton-gets-snubbed-in-china/article/2507027#!) or why he didn't give Obama the proper steps to disembark Air Force 1 (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/sep/5/obama-disrespected-by-china-rodrigo-duterte-on-fin/).
Who can respect an adversary who is so stupid?
BD: It's what spies do.
Have no idea why you think they would lie about this. The FBI, headed by a Trump appointee, says they have found no evidence of an intrusion, despite the reporting from conspiracy enthusiasts.
Yep, the FBI would never ever lie about something as serious as this.
The CIA neither.
What difference does it make who's running the FBI. He could be trying to cover for himself or somebody else.

Sure. Your claim depends on everyone lying. With that, you can make up anything you want. The world isn't round. Evolution is bunk. CO2 doesn't affect climate. All of it. It all fits!
Zzzzz: With that, you can make up anything you want.
Believe that's what you kiddiez do...
Ya know, the "handwaving" thing.
You know Zack, when your budget was approved for providing propaganda and harassment services for the 2018 election season, there was an expectation that you could at least be credible.
"Two officials with the ICIG, investigator Frank Rucker and attorney Janette McMillan, met repeatedly with FBI officials to warn them of the Chinese intrusion, according to a former intelligence officer with expertise in cybersecurity issues, who was briefed on the matter. He spoke anonymously, as he was not authorized to publicly address the Chinese’s role with Clinton’s server.
Among those FBI officials was Peter Strzok, who was then the bureau’s top counterintelligence official. Strzok was fired this month following the discovery he sent anti-Trump texts to his mistress and co-worker, Lisa Page. Strzok didn’t act on the information the ICIG provided him, according to Gohmert."
Surely you don't have any issues with using anonymous sources - right?
Aggie: "Two officials with the ICIG, investigator Frank Rucker and attorney Janette McMillan, met repeatedly with FBI officials to warn them of the Chinese intrusion"
Yes, that's the reporting from conspiracy enthusiasts. The FBI, headed by a Trump appointee, says otherwise.
Aggie: Surely you don't have any issues with using anonymous sources - right?
The Daily Caller has been unreliable in the past, are known for propagating conspiracy theories, and don't retract when stories are proven wrong. That doesn't mean they are wrong in this case, but one should be skeptical, especially as the FBI says the claim is unfounded.
So Louis Gohmert, Vice Chairman of the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations, doesn't know what he's talking about. Got it.
Yep, and the WaPo is sooo reliable in their reporting..
Aggie: So Louis Gohmert, Vice Chairman of the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations, doesn't know what he's talking about.
Others who were in the hearing contradict Gohmert's memory of the testimony. The FBI has publicly rejected the underlying contention, saying there was no evidence of a compromise of Clinton's server.
And these are the same kiddiez questioning the veracity of The Daily Caller?
Aggie, diin't worry about source documentation. Zach received his Top Secret clearance and also above Top Secret so he could read all the classified e-mails and documents Hillary sent on her unsecured server.
Zach's got the inside scoop and is going to tell us what is really going on jjncluding who and what the insurance policy was.
Dave: Zach's got the inside scoop
Not at all. Our arguments rely on publicly available evidence.
To be honest, it wasn't JUST Hillary's server, or Dianne's spy; the Chinese ALSO cracked the Office of Personnel Management, and stole all the records for every Federal employee, including military, including security clearance application forms. With references. With EVERYTHING, from 1990 on. I got a letter myself, informing that my info from my Navy career, had been included in the "breach".
Ken Mitchell: the Chinese ALSO cracked the Office of Personnel Management
While there is no evidence of a compromise of Clinton's server, the FBI arrested a Chinese national for the hack of the OPM, and has tied the hack to the Chinese state actors.
While there is no evidence of a compromise of Clinton's server...
Hard to collect evidence when you don’t examine the crime scene.
B. Hammer: Hard to collect evidence when you don’t examine the crime scene.
The FBI had access to the Clinton server, recovering a number of emails.
I need an anti-troll key on my computer. Anybody got one?
