FBI forced to correct Trump accusation that China hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Trump posted those totally out of the blue on Tuesday.

I actually tried to track the story down and found that it originated on The Daily Caller. 

After I saw that I realized that it was total bullshit, though that did not stop Fox News from latching onto the story as well.

After it spread through the Right Wing media that FBI was forced to respond.

Courtesy of the AP:

The FBI said Wednesday that it has no evidence Hillary Clinton’s private email server was compromised even though President Donald Trump tweeted a news report that alleged the Chinese had hacked it.

FBI and Justice Department officials have said publicly that there was no evidence Clinton’s server was hacked by a foreign power. Former FBI Director James Comey said at a July 2016 news conference that the FBI did not find direct evidence that the sever had been successfully hacked though he also acknowledged that, “given the nature of the system and of the actors potentially involved,” it would have been unlikely for the bureau to find such direct evidence.

A June report from the Justice Department’s inspector general on the FBI’s handling of the Clinton investigation said FBI specialists did not find evidence that the server had been hacked, with one forensics agent saying he felt “fairly confident that there wasn’t an intrusion.”

There is NO evidence that anybody hacked the Hillary Clinton email server. 

That needs to be said repeatedly because there are many on the Right who simply refuse to believe it’s true. 

The State Department, the DNC, The Clinton Campaign, the NSA, and the RNC were all successfully hacked. 

But NOT the Hillary Clinton email server. 

Which, despite all of the consternation its existence caused the conservatives, makes Hillary’s decision to maintain a private server one of the smartest ones in the entire 2016 campaign.

    OT-FYI?”One economist based in Moscow—Chris Weafer, a senior partner at Macro Advisory—noted that almost every deal struck by the Russian Direct Investment Fund involves at least some input by President Vladimir Putin himself. He described RDIF as a kind of financial “consigliere” of the Kremlin.” “Congressional leaders are actively looking at targeting RDIF under the new “sanctions from hell” bill proposed by Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) “The fund, whose CEO, Kirill Dmitriev, was involved in a meeting with Erik Prince in the Seychelles in 2017, has invested in Hyperloop at least twice. The fund made its first investment in April 2016, according to public disclosures, at a time when the Russian government was actively interfering in the 2016 presidential elections. In October 2017, Dmitriev announced that the fund had invested a second time with the Chinese Investment Corporation, China’s sovereign wealth fund. According to data obtained by The Daily Beast, the fund’s investment in the Hyperloop company appears to be one of its only investments in a U.S. business since sanctions went into place in 2014.”

    Trump made a direct threat to America. He said “If republicans don’t win there will be violence” He said it loud and clear to church leaders, pastors, clergy etc. and they clapped. Then a journalist finally ask him what he meant. and he spun it by saying oh if we lose the anti trump people will be violent? How fu*king ignorant is this pos sob? WTF is wrong with him? It is time for Congress to act Article 25 and get that POS lousy lying a hole OUT. The guy is sick and a slob.

    Does Trump care about China when he makes a wild false allegation? I say he does not, he only cares about invalidating that Russia did the hacking and how he
    appears. Trump is out of control more each day.

      “U.S. President Donald Trump has told aides he wants to move ahead on a plan to impose tariffs on Chinese imports worth $200 billion next week, Bloomberg News reported, further ratcheting up trade tensions between the world’s two largest economies.

      Both countries have levied tariffs on $50 billion on the other’s goods and threatened more duties. U.S. and Chinese officials ended talks last week without major breakthroughs on alleviating trade issues.”<rawstory

      “Trump threatened in an interview with Bloomberg News on Thursday to withdraw from the World Trade Organization if “they don’t shape up,”~“If they don’t shape up, I would withdraw from the WTO,” Trump said.

      Trump has complained the United States is treated unfairly in global trade and has blamed the WTO for allowing that to happen. He has also warned he could take action against the global body, although he has not specified what form that could take.”

    ot-legal team is crafting a “counter-report” “Since we have to guess what it is, [our report so far] is quite voluminous,” “According to Giuliani, the bulk of the report will be divided into two sections. One section will seek to question the legitimacy of the Mueller probe generally by alleging “possible conflicts” of interest by federal law enforcement authorities. The other section will respond to more substantive allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russian government agents to sway the 2016 election, and obstruction of justice allegations stemming from, among other things, the president’s firing of former FBI director James Comey.”
    ” Giuliani also indicated that most of what’s being put together by him and his Trump-defending colleagues currently can already be found on Google.
    Giuliani said that Trump’s legal team had not conducted any original interviews or investigation for their current draft.”

    “Following her sentence, Trump tweeted: “Ex-NSA contractor to spend 63 months in jail over ‘classified’ information. Gee, this is ‘small potatoes’ compared to what Hillary Clinton did! So unfair Jeff, Double Standard.” “The ‘small potatoes’ was a breath of fresh air. It really made me laugh,”

    “The editor-in-chief of the Intercept, the publication to which Winner leaked her documents, has defended her actions and said she was prosecuted with “vicious resolve” instead of being recognized as a “conscience-driven whistleblower.” Some feel the government sought to make an example out of her and used her sentencing to send a message to others considering leaking classified documents.
    Who is Reality Winner?
    Reality Winner pleaded guilty in June to a single count of transmitting national security information. The former Air Force translator worked as a contractor at a National Security Agency’s office in Augusta, Georgia, when she printed a classified report and left the building with it tucked into her pantyhose. Winner told the FBI she mailed the document to an online news outlet.”

    OT? “Trump said in the Holt interview, “regardless of recommendation, I was going to fire Comey knowing there was no good time to do it And in fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself — I said, you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story. It’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should’ve won.”” Legal experts have said Mueller’s team must weigh whether the president acted with an improper, or “corrupt,” intent when he took actions such as firing Comey.”<Dah

    ““Rudy Giuliani does not speak for the US government on foreign policy,” a State Department official told the Washington Post.

    Giuliani was reportedly nixed as a candidate for Secretary of State under Trump in part due to his problematic client list.”

    OT. (but not)

    Willow, you can get married now. You were holding off in case McCain died you could get to his funeral with the caravan of shit disturbers known as your family.

    So go to the alter with your man. He is marrying into a freefall hell. And fuck off.

    “Uighur Muslims in China have long reported state suppression, but now they say repression is stronger than ever. Advocates for the Muslim minority say Uighurs are now being rounded up by the hundreds of thousands and put in camps for assimilation. Nick Schifrin learns more from Omer Kanat, director of the Uighur Human Rights Project, and James Millward of Georgetown University.”
