Robert Mueller and the nation’s top intelligence official say Russia is trying to interfere in the midterm elections — but Republican and Democratic lawmakers say the Trump administration is keeping them in the dark about whether the U.S. is ready.

A half-dozen senior House and Senate lawmakers who spoke to POLITICO say they’re hearing only an alarming silence from the administration about what Moscow’s trolls and hackers are up to, less than five months before an election that could undo the Republican lock on Congress and derail President Donald Trump’s agenda.

They’re also getting conflicting messages: Mueller and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats have both asserted that Russian efforts to undermine the American political system are underway, without offering any public evidence or specifics. Meanwhile, officials from the Department of Homeland Security say they haven’t detected any specific Russian attacks on U.S. voting machines or databases this year.

“We’re getting so many mixed signals, depending on what the agency is,” said Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.), who is planning to convene a summit next month with intelligence officials. “It compels us to bring everybody together in the same room and try to figure out whether or not there’s some stovepipe issues.”

Okay let me just scooch out here on this limb to tell you something that I KNOW is true but cannot yet prove. 

Donald Trump and his administration have NO interest in stopping the Russian hackers from interfering in our upcoming elections. 

NONE!

Donald Trump is essentially an agent for the Kremlin, and I believe he is hoping that the Russians will help him to hold onto power. 

And why wouldn’t he?

After all, they helped get him elected in the first place.

    Yeah right the same dept that said trump couldn’t do anything about putting kids in cages!!!

    Meanwhile trump has found a new way of making money:First they rip them from their families, lock them in cages, make them sleep on concrete floors, now it is coming out, they are charging 85cents/minute to call their parents!!!

    Are they going to charge them for “room and board” also.

    And every weekend trump steals millions of taxpayers money to play golf at his own properties, I would rather the money go to the kids.

    Senator reveals conditions at detention facilities caused ‘pregnant women have had miscarriages since they’ve been here’

    In an interview with MSNBC’s Kassie Hunt, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) revealed the horrors she saw at the detention facility that she visited in Southern California.

    President Donald Trump’s administration as well as the Department of Homeland Security has said that the children have been able to call their parents and speak with them. During Melania Trump’s visit to McAllen, Texas, the first lady was told that the children were allowed to speak to their parent or family member twice a week. However, it was only if they could prove that the person they were calling was a guardian with documentation.

    Harris told MSNBC that the children are being charged for such phone calls at the California facility she visited. Each child must pay 85 cents per minute when they use the phone. ……..

    …“They have rolled back the protections that existed for pregnant women and there are pregnant women in that prison right now,” Harris said of the facility. “And there are pregnant women that have had miscarriages since they’ve been here,…
    It’s unclear how many women have lost their pregnancies while in detention facilities.

    At least one emergency room doctor volunteered to help with medical services, but was turned away for being “too qualified.”

    The only defense we have is to verify how our vote is tabulated when an election occurs. Save your voting receipt, then go online and check to see how it was registered. There’s usually a number that can be used to check your results.

    Can we please stop saying that Trump colluded with Russia and other foreign governments. He collaborated with foreign governments against the USA.

    PERIOD.
