Comparing the Steele Dossier to the Mueller Report

Politics • Views: 23,904

The right wing media have been obsessively pushing the lie that the Steele dossier on Trump’s contacts with Russia has been “debunked” or shown to be false. Even some mainstream sources are parroting these claims now.

But this is not the case.

In fact, the Mueller report actually verifies many parts of the dossier, and neither confirms nor debunks many other parts. The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler has a good examination of the matter, for those still interested in reality: What the Steele dossier said vs. what the Mueller report said.

“The Mueller Report substantiates the core reporting and many of the specifics in Christopher Steele’s 2016 memoranda, including that Trump campaign figures were secretly meeting Kremlin figures, that Russia was conducting a covert operation to elect Donald Trump, and that the aim of the Russian operation was to sow discord and disunity in the U.S. and within the Transatlantic Alliance,” Joshua A. Levy, counsel for Fusion GPS, told The Fact Checker. “To our knowledge, nothing in the Steele memoranda has been disproven.”

Wasn’t there some kind of scandal with these people? Or was that just RWNJ bullshit?

No matter how much of the dossier is confirmed accurate, it will be taken as gospel by Trumpworld and the GOP base that it is all a hoax and that the real crimes are those committed by Clinton, not Trump (projecting like IMAX is one hell of a drug).

Trump spews this nonsense almost daily, and his Fox mouthpieces regurgitate it endlessly, even though significant portions of the dossier are accurate.

For one thing, the Mueller report states in no uncertain terms that Russia sought to influence the outcome of the 2016 US elections, and that their preferred outcome was a Trump win, and that Clinton was the one they needed to beat, so they directed their efforts to bolster Bernie and Trump.

Not necessarily. I had to rescue a possum with his head stuck in a can of soup. He had jammed it in there, presumably to lick out the dregs, and gotten it stuck. He was wandering around on the side of the road and I pulled over and patiently yanked the can off his head, whereafter he scuttled into the underbrush.

It breaks my heart to see how many animals are suffering from this artificial world we have built in the last 100 years.

But weirdly, that doesn’t apply to the Sacklers and other pharmaceutical houses that pushed these opioids claiming that they weren’t addictive, lied about the addictive nature, and profited not only off the addictive nature of the drugs, but then claimed to have drugs that could counter the addictive effects and sell those too.

Nope, the death penalty applies to people who are street level dealers who made a fraction of what the Sacklers made. The death penalty also applies to the users who bought the drugs illegally on the street.

That’s Trump’s solution.

Or the money men that fund the buy to bring the drugs in. They are businessmen so they are good with Trump, probably some Republicans too.

Anyone notice he said China was bringing in fentanyl but did no mention of how it comes in? In other words, not coming in through the border.

I’m kind of surprised he didn’t say closing the border will help keep it out too.

Trump’s the guy who thinks power is an end to itself, and doesn’t care about our security - only his own.

Trump’s the guy who thinks that he’s smarter than everyone else in the room, and silences critics who tell him what he needs to hear.

These twits don’t realize that the FBI and State Dept had these emails all along, which is why shutting down her server and deleting it as per the rules in place at the time were fine. They had the records. There’s nothing to this except “BUT HER EMAILS”.

All the while, Trumpworld gives people security clearances they have no right to have, including Jared and Ivanka, ignores actual security protocols, ignores PDBs daily, ignores Russia as a threat to US national security and elections, and otherwise fails to do their jobs, but Trump and the right wing echo chamber thinks that the FBI’s job should be to endlessly investigate HRC and put her in prison for reasons.

As their first book publication by FDL Books (Vaster Books), “in order to have Marcy [Wheeler]’s work seen by a larger audience,” FireDogLake and Daily Kos jointly published her book on the CIA leak scandal, entitled Anatomy of Deceit: How the Bush Administration Used the Media to Sell the Iraq War and Out a Spy, on January 28, 2007.

11: emoluments clauses violations
12: abuse of power (declaration of national emergency per Youngstown Steel)
13: contempt of Congress (failing to comply with valid subpoenas), this could be multiple articles like the obstruction of justice articles
14: campaign finance violations (Stormy Daniels/Russia/Wikileaks)
15: graft/corruption (this was used against Secretary of War Belknap)

Some of those could probably involve multiple articles. And there’s probably a few more articles that you could draw up.

Even if one accepts the idea of divine inspiration, much of the Bible describes history in the sense that these are actions taken by humans and written down by human hands.

um… not exactly.

Fourth year med students do six-week rotations at half a dozen specialty postings; there’s more than a dozen to choose from, so they aren’t all doing the same. It’s one of the ways they decide which internships and residencies they want to apply to. I don’t remember all of my brothers’ rotations, just that his psych rotation creeped him the hell out, and the pediatrics rotation was commonly referred to as “veterinary medicine” (because the patients are mostly non-verbal, and it’s a lot of guesswork to figure out what’s bothering them).

All my computing experience I’ve either picked up because of my fascination with computers or on the job over the last 20 years. It’s that experience which allows me to ask the questions I do at problem management meetings. But my shallow but wide experience on a lot of topics also gives me the background to move from a database issue one day to a foreign telephony issue the next, to a network issue the day after. As far as security goes, that is one area where I can ask some questions but might have to research the answers.

Isn’t for many the whole goal of The Bible at this point is to have a massive collection of passages to take out of context so that you have a ready made argument from authority that will back any particular opinion or decision you want?

The Bible is stories, proverbs, poems, history, fantasy…and a few guidelines for treating others well.

Sadly, it’s not streaming anywhere because when it was released there were all kinds of protests, so apparently Miramax or whomever produced it transferred the rights to the Weinsteins and since that happened before digital rights, it’s stuck on DVD since the Weinsteins have their current issues.

I haven’t heard too many of them say anything about Republicans helping so that it can be done properly and he can be kicked out by the Republican Senate.

Amazingly after some of that kind of talk yesterday on Nicole Wallace’s show on MSNBC, she at least brought that very fact up and asked if anyone was going to talk about their responsibility as Republicans?

Once again…Republicans fuck shit up and then rely on Democrats to fix it up so they can go back to bitching about Democrats.

Yeah, I want Washington fixed too.

Maybe if we can get Trump gone and get hold of the Senate we can all work to rid this country of the Republican party. It is very much needed.

The Talmud Bavli contains 20 volumes, which is a lot, but if you learn 2 pages a day it takes about 7 years to complete the entire cycle.

Z has completed a Siyum Hashas several times. 4 of my sons, and my oldest grandson, have completed the cycle at least once.

I did that in English for a year for just the Pirke Avot; i learned much from it. To do the whole thing would be fascinating to me.

“Plaintiff’s complaints demonstrate that the National Rifle Association (“NRA”) violated the Federal Election Campaign Act by using a complex network of shell corporations to unlawfully coordinate expenditures with the campaigns of at least seven candidates for federal office, thereby making millions of dollars of illegal, unreported, and excessive in-kind contributions, including up to $25 million in illegal contributions to now President Donald J.

Something worth considering:

If Trump exerts executive privilege to prohibit testimony by senior aides, the answer isn’t 6 months of litigation.

The answer is to say fine, we’re having a hearing with or without you, & we’re moving to an impeachment inquiry vote by Memorial Day.

8:01 AM - Apr 24, 2019

Jolly was one of the conservatives on Nicole Wallace’s show yesterday that was crying about the Democrats approach to impeaching Trump.

He was also quiet when Wallace asked if anyone on the conservative/Republican side of things was going to do anything?

I have a feeling Jolly is the kind of guy that will be glad Democrats got Trump out so he can quit calling himself an independent.

I don’t hear people like Jolly say they are going to the Democratic party. What does that tell you?

It tells me not to trust Jolly and others.

A UPS Store says they have received 667 packages of playing cards addressed to a Washington state senator who said nurses “probably play cards for a considerable amount of the day,” according to CNN affiliate KOMO News .

Republican state Sen. Maureen Walsh apologized on Monday after facing a backlash for comments she made debating a bill, HB 1155, that would provide uninterrupted meal and rest breaks and mandatory overtime for nurses and certain health care employees.

Walsh said last Tuesday on the senate floor , “By putting these types of mandates on a critical access hospital that literally serves a handful of individuals, I would submit to you those nurses probably do get breaks. They probably play cards for a considerable amount of the day.”

An open letter posted by Facebook user Shy Braaten called for people to send a deck of cards to the senator, and included her PO Box.

ObserverArt  Apr 24, 2019 • 6:12:46pm

I can hear the responses.

WaPo Opinion - Hillary Clinton: Mueller documented a serious crime against all Americans. Here’s how to respond.

Here is the opening…

Our election was corrupted, our democracy assaulted, our sovereignty and security violated. This is the definitive conclusion of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report. It documents a serious crime against the American people.

The debate about how to respond to Russia’s “sweeping and systematic” attack — and how to hold President Trump accountable for obstructing the investigation and possibly breaking the law — has been reduced to a false choice: immediate impeachment or nothing. History suggests there’s a better way to think about the choices ahead.

Obviously, this is personal for me, and some may say I’m not the right messenger. But my perspective is not just that of a former candidate and target of the Russian plot. I am also a former senator and secretary of state who served during much of Vladi­mir Putin’s ascent, sat across the table from him and knows firsthand that he seeks to weaken our country.

I am also someone who, by a strange twist of fate, was a young staff attorney on the House Judiciary Committee’s Watergate impeachment inquiry in 1974, as well as first lady during the impeachment process that began in 1998. And I was a senator for New York after 9/11, when Congress had to respond to an attack on our country. Each of these experiences offers important lessons for how we should proceed today.

First, like in any time our nation is threatened, we have to remember that this is bigger than politics. What our country needs now is clear-eyed patriotism, not reflexive partisanship. Whether they like it or not, Republicans in Congress share the constitutional responsibility to protect the country. Mueller’s report leaves many unanswered questions — in part because of Attorney General William P. Barr’s redactions and obfuscations. But it is a road map. It’s up to members of both parties to see where that road map leads — to the eventual filing of articles of impeachment, or not. Either way, the nation’s interests will be best served by putting party and political considerations aside and being deliberate, fair and fearless.

Second, Congress should hold substantive hearings that build on the Mueller report and fill in its gaps, not jump straight to an up-or-down vote on impeachment. In 1998, the Republican-led House rushed to judgment. That was a mistake then and would be a mistake now.

Watergate offers a better precedent. Then, as now, there was an investigation that found evidence of corruption and a coverup. It was complemented by public hearings conducted by a Senate select committee, which insisted that executive privilege could not be used to shield criminal conduct and compelled White House aides to testify. The televised hearings added to the factual record and, crucially, helped the public understand the facts in a way that no dense legal report could. Similar hearings with Mueller, former White House counsel Donald McGahn and other key witnesses could do the same today.

Abuse: You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. We consider abusive behavior an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else’s voice.

Unwanted sexual advances: You may not direct abuse at someone by sending unwanted sexual content, objectifying them in a sexually explicit manner, or otherwise engaging in sexual misconduct.

Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease. Read more about our hateful conduct policy.

Hateful imagery and display names: You may not use hateful images or symbols in your profile image or profile header. You also may not use your username, display name, or profile bio to engage in abusive behavior, such as targeted harassment or expressing hate towards a person, group, or protected category.

Today’s bass lesson was from Feel Good, Inc. Fun to play. My son hears it, and asks if it’s that song (he doesn’t listen to them a lot, but they’re a favorite band of his older brother). Then he goes “Somethings not right. You’re playing E minor, but the song is lower, probably E flat minor.” Which the lesson teacher confirms at the end. He moved the song up a half step so we would’t have to tune the bass.

It’s been months since my son heard that song. He’s 14.
