CNN detracts and apologizes for unfounded story about Trump associate...

On Thursday evening, CNN investigative reporter Thomas Frank published a potentially explosive report involving an investigation of a Russian investment fund with potential ties to several associates of President Donald Trump.
But by Friday night, the story was removed from CNN’s website and all links were scrubbed from the network’s social media accounts.
“That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted,” CNN said in an editors note posted in place of the story. “Links to the story have been disabled.”

I guess when the real leaks start drying up, then you have to go with fake leaks to keep the momentum up. The reality is that it's going to be very hard for the liberal MSM to continue to come up with blockbuster reports as time goes on, especially in regards to their favorite pass time of connecting Trump to Russia.

We are only five months into the Trump Presidency and these people have to be exhausted and maybe starting to realize that landing the knock out blow isn't going to be as easy as they thought. When you unload everything you have in the first few rounds, and your opponent is still standing and fighting back, it must become discouraging.

They don't, it's a false flag.

Good ole gentle truth-seeking James said...

Uninteresting thread.

Here's where the action is:

"...the [Senate] bill’s bold redistribution of wealth — the billions of dollars taken from coverage for the poor would help fund tax cuts for the wealthy — is creating substantial anxiety for several Republican moderates whose states have especially benefited from the expansion of Medicaid that the Affordable Care Act has allowed since 2014.”

Obnoxious James Boswell trolling

Concepts of pith and self-thought are alien to Boswell.

Just a troll.

Good ole thoughtful truth seeking James said...

Some people hate objective thinking. They prefer silly tweets. For example:

President Trump went after his former election opponent Hillary Clinton, slamming her in a tweet on Sunday morning.

"Hillary Clinton colluded with the Democratic Party in order to beat Crazy Bernie Sanders. Is she allowed to so collude? Unfair to Bernie!" Trump wrote.

This is of course not the first time the president has made such a claim against Clinton.

Back in October 2016, Trump tweeted, "Crooked Hillary colluded w/FBI and DOJ and media is covering up to protect her. It's a #RiggedSystem! Our country deserves better!"

So it was the Russians who colluded with the DNC to deny Bernie the nomination.

Go it!!! (Insert your Twilight Zone theme here)
