The Trump Presidency...

He was a representative of the British Government, and vouched for information supplied by a British National to be used in a Presidential election. Not a smooth move.
I just read both of those articles can you point at the bit where Kim Darroch vouches for the raw intel gathered by Steele, he did vouch for Steele when asked if "he" was legit but that isn't quite the same thing.
 
Close enough as in it it didn't say what you said it said
He verified that a foreign national supplying information trying to influence the Presidential election was legit. Perhaps he should have been more careful with that verification.
If he knew this was being used by the Clinton campaign which he more than likely did, he done fucked up.

In both of those articles it only mentions that Kim Darroch confirmed that Steels was legit, Steele was a former MI6 officer and Darroch would have access to that information. Neither article states that Darroch confirmed the legitimacy of the human intelligence Steele had provided, you are just reading into it what you want it to say not what it actually says. I also noted that both articles stated that the raw human Intelligence collected by Steele from his Eastern European contacts for the dossier was unverified rather than provably false.

If you read the Mueller report he was either unable to verify some of the intel or what he could did not meet the bar but he was given a very narrow range for his investigation. If you drop the most salacious part of the dossier which was about prostitutes pissing on a bed, it did indicate that Trump had significant financial ties to wealthy Russians which is actually in the public domain. As we know US banks would not touch him with a barge pole so he had to seek money elsewhere which as Don jr said in 2008 came disproportionately from Russian sources but that was just business for the Trumps, what it was for the Russians is another matter and we can only speculate but an awful lot of those oligarchs seem to keep close ties to former KGB counter intelligence officer, Colonel Vladimir Putin.

How Russian Money Helped Save Trump’s Business

If your job was to provide someone with a security clearance to sensitive intelligence intrinsic to the safety of the American people and based on a background check of what is in the public domain would the word unverified on some collected humint raise a red flag particularity if that person has a track record of lying to people for his own ends.

Well this isn't rather disturbing

Send her back, not send them back. Funny that Trump has never made similar suggestions to white people who are critical of him including Arnold Schwarzenegger though to be fair Trump thought Austria was where Kangaroos came from.

You haven't read it or you want it to say something that it doesn't. As usual.
 
Not bothered is he?

There has been quite a bit of chatter that Trump's racist tweet was a distraction for the Epstein thing, I don't really know but with Mueller's testimony to congress coming up if Trump was filmed lighting a cross on Obama's front lawn I wouldn't be surprised.

We didn't elect him that's the problem. The people voted for Hilary. The Electoral College voted for Donald.

BTW - keep an eye on the Epstein saga - Trump's involvement is about to get a bit more juicier....
Not just Trump by the sounds of it


This is going to blow up big.

Why do I suspect that Epstein's entire career from his escaping teaching to billionaire has been based in blackmail, pimping and sex trafficking
