Re: Putin on the Writs

It was just troll farms, yo. They never actually got any of their people anywhere close to the campaign, and they never compromised someone who would subsequently get jobs that require security clearances.

Re: Orange is the new President

Trump isn't my kid, but I'd be happy to beat him anyway.

I realize, though, that the Secret Service would probably insist that they have priority to beat him, since they have to put up with his shit all day.

Re: When life gives you Yemens

Sorry, guys. The Rubicon has been crossed.

OK, they could cut off funds....sorry, couldn't stop laughing. They'll never make cu...

You're conflating two different things. What Maria Butina and flash drive woman did isn't work that would typically be done by someone in an espionage agency. It's done by assets and agents. The espionage officer's job is to cultivate assets and agents and leverage them to get information and accom...
