High-level advisers close to then-presidential nominee Donald Trump were in constant communication during the campaign with Russians known to US intelligence, multiple current and former intelligence, law enforcement and administration officials tell CNN.

President-elect Trump and then-President Barack Obama were both briefed on details of the extensive communications between suspected Russian operatives and people associated with the Trump campaign and the Trump business, according to US officials familiar with the matter.

Both the frequency of the communications during early summer and the proximity to Trump of those involved "raised a red flag" with US intelligence and law enforcement, according to these officials. The communications were intercepted during routine intelligence collection targeting Russian officials and other Russian nationals known to US intelligence.

Among several senior Trump advisers regularly communicating with Russian nationals were then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and then-adviser Michael Flynn.

See that? Now all of this is going to come out and they better have answers as to why they were doing that.

Or will it just all end up going nowhere, being buried, since the Republicans refuse to ask for an independent inquiry into the shenanigans?

After 18 or so hearings on four Americans dying, one would think an investigation of Russian influence on the American elections would be bipartisan. Who knew that they were just propaganda tools and not used in real investigations.

The republicans can run, but they can't hide. What it all boils down to is this: they own the presidency, they own the senate, they own congress, and they can't govern for shit. Fact: They love being in the driver's seat, but they have no idea where the hell they're going. Truth is, they really don't care. No wonder Putin loves'em.

This has to be the worst administration beginning in American history.

It's going to be a long 4 years for us, but even longer and harder for tRump.

We, the American people deserve better.

If the feds knew this as far back as when clinton's emails were hacked wtf are they waiting until now to divulge? I cannot fathom why they waited until after the election. This whole system is corrupt. As Bob would say every gd mfing one of them. He'd be going bonker's about now.

The Trump team didn't just disagree with the sanctions on Russia that the Obama administration imposed on the Russians in December for monkeying around in our election.

They completely disregarded and disparaged the evidence and the intelligence community that gathered it, even going so far as to call them Nazis.

Then they actively and covertly worked to assure the Russians that the sanctions would be lifted.

What Mike Pence knew and when he knew it is nothing more than a smoke screen.

The fact is that the intelligence community suspected Michael Flynn of being a Russian agent and finally, after the Trump team refused to act, brought out the long knives and took him out themselves.

This isn't over, because what the intelligence community suspected of Flynn, they have every reason to suspect of Trump.

The course of the republicans in congress is now set -- no investigations of Trump and gang's Russian dealings. None. Nada. Zip. The real investigations are going to be to find all those who have been leaking the stories that should have seen Trump impeached.

For all of you who aren't republicans -- if you want to survive, we're now at war. No more accommodations or compromising. The republicans don't give a shit if Putin runs Trump -- they want to stay in the driver's seat.

Why is anyone surprised? The republicans gave up on America a long, long time ago.

Reality.

Not for one damn second do I believe Flynn just went and called up the Kremlin and discussed lifting sanctions on the day Obama made them w/o Trump's approval. He knew in Jan. Flynn was caught and did nothing until the press got a hold of it? Hell no! Other people may be morons but I'm not falling for it.

No matter what I think of Joe and Mika for helping #45 turn the White House into the mad house, I have to admit it seems like they are finally opening their eyes to the real horror in Washington.


Joe: So Republicans, you can just stop the bs.


Mika: Note to Republicans, this only gets worse. For the country and for you and for your party.

Flynn has been treated unfairly by the fake media and that's a shame because he was just about to come out with a new line of handbags...

trump - information is being given illegally.

The President of the United States has basically just confirmed the leaks.

But, @realDonaldTrump, isn't what's in the leak more important than who leaked it? That's what you told us.

Mike Flynn talked to the Russians and lied to Pence to cover up mistakes made by the Clinton Campaign?

Cunning plan. Bigly.

Yeah, right. Sooo pitiful when Trump said that today while alongside Netanyahu in their news conference, and while also finding it necessary to remind everyone yet one more time of the size of his....er....electoral college vote. The man is SICK. Embarrasses the nation every single day. Bigly.

As to the year-long contacts of high ranking Trump campaign staff with Russian intelligence officials, CNN reports this afternoon that their own sources advise that U.S. intelligence has seen NO evidence of collusion in those conversations. So what the hell WERE they talking about??

It's also been reported today that all those regular contacts were so unnerving to our intelligence that they reported them both to President Obama and President-Elect Trump in intelligence briefings. FWIW.

Fact?? From what source, please? Or is this just you, speculating?

From whence do you suppose the leaks originated?
