You need a link to prove that Wikileaks was the repository and distributing point for the Russian email hack of the DNC server? Really? I'd have thought that was common knowledge.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says that the Russians didn't hack the DNC, and so did John McAfee of McAfee security systems.
http://www.salon.com/2017/01/03/juli...-donald-trump/

Both of them know their stuff, and neither one of them has a dog in this fight.

So, while "the Russians gave the election to Trump" (Although Hillary won the popular vote) is the Democrat mantra and now common knowledge, I think that belief, like much "common knowledge," is bullshit.

Just my humble opinion.

If you think those two don't have an wicked anti-HillaryClinton dog in this fight, you haven't been paying attention.

No one I'm aware of is making that argument. The data shows that it was Comey that 'threw' the election to Trump.

Whether the Russian campaign was effective nor not is irrelevant. The issue is that Russia [allegedly] interfered with a US federal election and likely had American assistance to do so and there's a whole lot of illegal in that.

So what? If he doesn't want to reply that's his prerogative.

There is no need to badger people.

I don't regard it as badgering, to tell someone once that they haven't answered someone's question, when it is perfectly possible that they haven't answered it because they didn't notice it. I don't see any suggestion of the lack of an answer being due to not wanting rather than being due to not noticing.

Michael didn't ask me a question in post #14, he just made a statement.

Note the lack of a question mark.

But, if you haven't had enough Comey/Hillary/Trump conspiracy theories, there's the last sentence in this link:

Yes, you're right. I used the word 'question' in the post to Michael, and that was indeed incorrect. The significant thing for me is that now I know that your lack of an answer to Michael's statement was due to your choice and not because you didn't notice his statement. I always thing it's a shame if points aren't responded to which would have been responded to if the potential responder had noticed the point - now I know that not to be the case.
