George W. Bush says Russia meddled in 2016 US election

quote:

"There's pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled," Bush said at a talk in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. "Whether they affected the outcome is another question." Bush also said that "it's problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system. Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results."


Trust the results? Is the writer saying the Russians changed actual voting tallies? This is propaganda at its finest.

quote:

He made his comments while in a conversation with Michael Milken, known as the king of high-risk "junk" bonds in the 1980s. Milken pleaded guilty to securities-law violations in 1990 and served 22 months in prison. He agreed in a settlement with the SEC to a lifetime ban from the securities industry and paid a $200 million fine.


Milkmen is the greatest financial criminal in the history of the United States

quote:

U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded Russia meddled in the 2016 election to help Trump win.


Really? Meddled to help Trump win? I missed this, they will push these garbage articles till we die.

Hilarious this is an AP lead when multiple blockbusters dropped on the Dems yesterday

The average person would just read the title and believe it.

He’s wrong and the liar is disingenuous at best, Milken is a criminal as well

How the frick does he have any special insight?

After 8 years of Obama weaponizing the agencies that would know we are supposed to believe Bush still has some special links into them?

And the media breathlessly reporting what he has to say is shameless

Here's a hint George - they still hate you and they always will but they will use a useful idiot when they find one.

No he isn't. That's why you didn't refute anything he said. You just melted about someone else.

They meddled by creating a fake “dossier” that the dems paid them do make.

Anyone who thinks Russia didn't meddle and didn't desire a Trump victory is being willfully ignorant or intellectually dishonest.

I’m refuting that the Russians meddle on the behalf of Trump. No evidence supports this.

All things being uncovered point to ALL Others rather than Donald Trump.

Russia was allowed to meddle because of whom invited it in. The collusion is from all things Democrat.

Don't talk about George W. Bush with such disrespect. He was a fine president. I would hate to see how Trump would have handled Sep 11th 2001. Go give Bannon a huge.

No kidding. Trump gave the Russians uranium. It only makes sense that Putin wanted Trump to win.

Anybody who thinks Trump "colluded" with the Russians or that the Russians did anything different than they have been doing for decades is being willfully ignorant or intellectually dishonest.

Anybody who thinks we would have heard a peep about this if the bitch had won is worse.

Tell us all about how you read the article within the 30 seconds it took you to post.

You're a hero.

I don't think Trump personally colluded with them. Members of his team may have.

But producing fake news and spreading it via bots and trolls, organizing fake FB events which real people showed up to, and then the hacking of the DNC and/or release of that info to Wiki leaks. Yeah that's meddling. And considering they also have done it in numerous other countries why is it difficult to believe?
