WASHINGTON — Two weeks before his inauguration, Donald J. Trump was shown highly classified intelligence indicating that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia had personally ordered complex cyberattacks to sway the 2016 American election.

The evidence included texts and emails from Russian military officers and information gleaned from a top-secret source close to Mr. Putin, who had described to the C.I.A. how the Kremlin decided to execute its campaign of hacking and disinformation.

Mr. Trump sounded grudgingly convinced, according to several people who attended the intelligence briefing. But ever since, Mr. Trump has tried to cloud the very clear findings that he received on Jan. 6, 2017, which his own intelligence leaders have unanimously endorsed.

The shifting narrative underscores the degree to which Mr. Trump regularly picks and chooses intelligence to suit his political purposes. That has never been more clear than this week.

On Monday, standing next to the Russian president in Helsinki, Finland, Mr. Trump said he accepted Mr. Putin’s denial of Russian election intrusions. By Tuesday, faced with a bipartisan political outcry, Mr. Trump sought to walk back his words and sided with his intelligence agencies.

On Wednesday, when a reporter asked, “Is Russia still targeting the U.S.?” Mr. Trump shot back, “No” — directly contradicting statements made only days earlier by his director of national intelligence, Dan Coats, who was sitting a few chairs away in the Cabinet Room. (The White House later said he was responding to a different question.)

Hours later, in a CBS News interview, Mr. Trump seemed to reverse course again. He blamed Mr. Putin personally, but only indirectly, for the election interference by Russia, “because he’s in charge of the country.”

he House on Thursday passed another giant funding package, putting lawmakers exactly halfway on the path to advancing all 12 funding bills by Sept. 30.

But the march toward the Senate was interrupted by a raucous demonstration on the floor by Democrats, who broke into a chant of "USA, USA" as they forced a procedural vote attempting to restore election security grant funding slashed by Republicans.

The House’s flurry of action so far this summer is no reassurance that both chambers of Congress can muscle through all of the spending bills by the end of the fiscal year and avoid a stopgap spending measure — or even a potential government shutdown. The election security funds could be a flashpoint in the Senate, where Democrats hold more sway.

The two-bill fiscal 2019 spending bundle, which was approved 217-199, funds a slew of agencies including the Treasury Department, the IRS, the EPA, conservation programs — and election security.

House Democrats have seized on the GOP’s plan to reject new election security funding in the legislation, even as U.S. intelligence officials warn of the ongoing threat from Russia ahead of the midterms. That issue broke open this week, as an indictment from special counsel Robert Mueller revealed new details of how Russian officers attempted to crack into state voter databases.

“Surely we can rise above pandering to party and Putin to act on behalf of our elections,” House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said on the floor Thursday, rallying Democrats in the chant before the effort to fund new election grants failed 182-232. “We have sworn an oath to defend our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

No one saw Trump winning (Not even Trump.), so the idea that the Russians didn't do it at the last second because Trump won is laughable.
The Russians proved they could hack into the system only to prove they could do it and flex their muscles. You have to remember, unlike the DNC hack, they made sure the US government knew it was them who got into the election systems to prove they could do it.
It's the equivalent of doing a weapon test off the coast of America while still in international waters.

It was the equivelent of

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday defeated an attempt by panel Democrats to subpoena the interpreter who worked for President Donald Trump during his summit Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“This is an extraordinary remedy, I realize, but then it’s extraordinary for the president of the United States to ask all of his senior staff essentials to leave the room and have a conversation with an adversary,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who called for the vote to compel the interpreter to testify behind closed doors. “And then in a public conversation disavow his own intelligence agencies and in many respects disavow his own country.”

Trump has come under increasing scrutiny from Democrats as well as his fellow Republicans for appearing to side with Putin over his own intelligence agencies on Russian meddling allegations, even as the president has attempted to walk back his comments in recent days.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-Mass.) have also called for the translator’s testimony.

Schiff noted Democrats had requested a business meeting for next week but that the request had been declined, arguing “this may be our last opportunity before we go into an extended recess” to make such an effort.

Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) initially declined to recognize Schiff’s motion before recessing the panel for about 20 minutes. When it reconvened, the committee voted along party lines, 11-6, to table Schiff’s attempt to bring the interpreter before the committee.

Because 4 years ago talking about the russians would get you branded as a crazy McCarthy-fan with hateboner for ruskies due to their commie past.

But now that the Dems lost to the clown in chief you are all pulling bullshit out of your ass to justify getting him out.
Suddenly the ruskies are a real threat.
Much like the elections were pure and uncorruptable before Trump won, and now you cunts are all crying about russian meddling.

Look at yourself in the mirror you pathetic twat.
>Suddenly the ruskies are a real threat.
This has been reiterated by countless Republicans including like, five people Trump handpicked out of all 300 million he could have picked.
But are they a world ending threat, or are they no threat at all?
Perhaps they are simply a signficant threat as republicans pointed out before the media craze began and Trump won, all the way back in the Romney x Obama election.
Maybe, just maybe these apocalyptic preachers and the people who deny any threat at all are political shills or useful idiots, buying into a narrative because it's convenient. Perhaps a more nuanced view that accepts the US has a series of rivals which have been constantly trying to hinder it - as much as it tries to hinder them - is acceptable?
Maybe, just maybe we can also accept that the US internal affairs aren't entirely sorted out, and the game of "this is very grave" and "this is nothing at all" just flipped parties?
But no.
This is why I take none of you seriously, and I'm fine with Donnie J. doing what he's doing: which is actually the exact same as the previous president - fucking nothing.
Some republicans*.
After we just found out he knew it was Putin who ordered the attack on America and has been knowingly lying about it?
Yeah, we call that treason in any decently run country.

>It's a small shift in the bylaws, but it’s meant to make a big difference.

>Council confirmed that there is no smoking -- of anything -- in public places without express permission.

>The debate started by looking at what will happen when cannabis is legalized.

“I think it just makes sense to treat cannabis like alcohol under the law,” said District 14 Coun. Lisa Blackburn. “I don't think this is demonizing cannabis at all. Under the law, you can't walk down the sidewalk on Quinpool Road taking a swig from a wine bottle. So it just makes sense that you can't smoke weed.”

Haha, holy shit you're unhinged.
Huh? It's the law in America too. The only difference is we don't get summary executed because of it. :)
I live in Halifax, and this is pretty obvious normal vindictive legislation from the conservatives assholes who run this place.
This isn't American Liberal vs Conservative, this province is entirely right wing oriented. But one side was to be able to smoke weed, the other is a bunch of fucking shit heads who want to make people miserable. We pay $18 for a pack of cigarettes, $25 for a 12 pack of beer, thanks to so called "sin taxes" because this dickheads don't like those things.

The smoking laws are already pretty harsh. Before now, the law was you couldn't smoke within 15 meter of a public building entrance, which means basically nowhere downtown. I never saw that law get enforced in my life, and I smoked right outside my work entrance every day with no trouble.

The problem is this politicians are encouraging litigious motherfuckers to be aggressive, and it's all a powerplay. I'm gonna sound SJW, but this is a perfect example of how conservatives have a tendency towards oppression.
I don't smoke anyway, so I don't give a shit.

Granting any credibility to the scheme means the White House is "playing into Russia's hands," Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn., told reporters on Thursday.

Corker said that although the president has wide discretion to conduct foreign affairs, he might have gone too far in Helsinki, adding that he wants to question Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about the summit at a hearing next week.

"The president does have the ability to meet with anybody he wishes," Corker said. "I think this one, especially the presentation that was made at the end, was disconcerting to most Americans and certainly was to me."

"We're going to have Pompeo come in next week, and I think we'll be much better informed when that is over, as to what the intentions are, where they're trying to take this relationship, was there anything that was agreed to privately in those meetings."

The prospect that the United States might grant access to McFaul or others, in exchange for American investigators talking with Russians linked to cyberattacks, had been viewed as unlikely.

But Trump had called it an "incredible offer" on Monday in his press conference with Putin in Helsinki, and Sanders had seemed to suggest Wednesday that the administration was evaluating it.

Critics said it was a mistake for the White House even to appear that it had been evaluating the idea of an interrogation exchange.

And former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also weighed in on McFaul's behalf, calling him a "patriot" and writing, "To see the White House even hesitate to defend a diplomat is deeply troubling."

>Ambassador @McFaul is a patriot who has spent his career standing up for America. To see the White House even hesitate to defend a diplomat is deeply troubling.

One issue for administration officials before Thursday's climb-down appeared to be how receptive Trump had remained to the idea.

Another issue was that the idea was so novel that when the administration appeared to be contemplating it, no one seemed to be sure how an exchange might have worked.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Wednesday that although Putin's charges against McFaul and other Americans are "absolutely absurd," she was not prepared to speak on behalf of the department and say that her agency opposed the idea of some kind of handover.

"I believe some of this would fall under the Department of Justice, so I'd have to loop in the Department of Justice on this," she said. "This is something that just came out."
>State Hillary Clinton also weighed in... writing, "To see the White House even hesitate to defend a diplomat is deeply troubling."
I guess it's still her turn?
Meanwhile in reality. Trump was almost manipulated by Putin into handing over US Citizens over to him. Some of whom would die under 'mysterious' circumstances while in Russia.

A GROUP of thieves has unwittingly livestreamed themselves allegedly stealing and taking drugs on surveillance cameras they pilfered from a Gold Coast shop that were linked to the owner’s phone.

Queensland Police today released vision of two men they want to speak to in relation to an alleged break and enter on Amazon Circuit in the suburb of Helensvale on June 30.

Four men allegedly broke into a shed on the property while it was under construction and took the cameras, solar panels and other items before leaving to consume drugs at another location, according to police. But what they didn't realise at the time was that their presence had set off an alert on the phone of its owner, a 37-year-old Mackay man, 1000km away. The property owner watched the break-in and robbery live as it was broadcast from surveillance devices mounted at the construction site.

“Surveillance cameras were stolen during the incident … all the while, live-streaming footage to the owner’s mobile phone,” a police statement read.

“It’s alleged that around 4.20am, a group of four men had forced entry to a shed at the back of his property.

“The Mackay man viewed live footage, which was being uploaded in real-time via surveillance cameras mounted at the construction site, of the men allegedly stealing property such as; the surveillance cameras, solar panels and a modem, then relocating to another address where they allegedly consumed drugs.”

Police used the footage to nab a 29-year-old Gaven man and have charged him with several offences including stealing and entering a premise.

He is due to appear at the Southport Magistrates Court on Thursday. Police are yet to apprehend his three accomplices although they have footage of two of the assailants but are yet to identify the fourth man.

Authorities are urging anyone who has information regarding the identities or whereabouts of the men wanted by police to contact them.

The first man is described as European in appearance, aged in his 30s, with short brown hair and fluorescent green “spacers” in his earlobes. It appears he has a diamond tattoo on his neck. He was wearing a white baseball cap, a dark blue long-sleeve jumper with “LA” emblazoned on the front with white letting and a red bag at the time of the incident, police said.

The second man is described as caucasian in appearance, aged in his 30s, lean build, with short brown hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a blue hooded jacket at the time of the incident.

A big crowd gathered in a Tucson church last week, ready to hear candidates' plans for gun-control legislation from people vying to become lawmakers at the Arizona state Capitol.

All was going more or less as expected. Then, it was Bobby Wilson's turn to speak.

Wilson, one of two Republican candidates who attended the July 9 meeting, took the mic and told a story of how he shot and killed a crazed attacker in an act of self-defense while a teenager.

That attacker, it turned out, was his mother.

He said his life story illustrates the importance of having "a good guy there with a gun" rather than gun-control legislation.

"You can pass all the laws you want to in this world, and when you've got somebody out there that wants to harm somebody, they're going to do it if you don't stop them," Wilson told the crowd.

>gasoline exploded from a light switch

Electrician here. Its actually easier than you think to start a fire with a light switch. You are literally physically making contact between two metal plates, which can arc and create sparks of they are damaged or low quality. And when the switch is engaged, it sends voltage through the wire to the light, another potential spot for electrical arcing.

Modern switches in places with highly flammable gasses are specially sealed, and it's likely that the switches in the home were old as fuck and likely unsealed. I'll bet you've never looked at the guts of a 1920s push-button switch, but I can assure you, they are a fire waiting to happen. Not to mention the fact that old-school metal switchboxes are tiny and often have wires arc against them without the short causing a breaker to trip or a fuse to burn out. And the many of the breakers of that time were Zinsco(now defunct) which are notoriously bad at tripping the circuit when a short to ground happens.

I know you're emotional about 2 women who died over half a century ago, but let science correct your incorrect assertions.
If only his mom or sister had a gun.
>I'll bet you've never looked at the guts of a 1920s push-button switch

I actually have, or at least changed switches of a house from that era. The switch itself was newer (an older flip switch, probably installed by my grandfather as a replacement to the originals) but the stuff behind it... yesh. It was like someone didn't really know what do with them new fangled electronics and just started boring holes and shoved some wires in there.

While you're right about the physics behind it (which we both agree on), I was more incredulous about the assumed distance from the light switch and where the gasoline was stored. I don't think there would be enough vapor from 2 gallons of gasoline leaking from bullet holes over what was probably a few minutes to ignite from a spark in a different room, nor do I think there would be enough vapor to literally blast him out of the house like his version of events suggest. Of course this is based on assumptions on the layout of the house. Maybe gasoline leaked through the floor right into the wiring below. Maybe the kid literally slept next to the fuse box and shit was about to pop off at any moment. However, I find it far more likely that he doused the room with gasoline and waited to ignite it once the house was sufficiently saturated with vapors. Otherwise I think he would have just ended up with a gasoline fire instead of an explosion (not that it wouldn't be enough to destroy evidence regardless).

Indeed. Years back I remember reading an article about decolonialism in Congo (Zaire at the time) and it mentioned that after Europeans left and the roads started to disintegrate thru complete lack of maintenance, the elites in Zairean society simply bought foreign 4x4 trucks so they could get around, while the average people had to make due with 50 year old busses banging around pot holes and struggling up muddy two-tracks.

And when the phone system started to fall apart, the elites just said “fuck it” and imported satellite phones for themselves. At one point, there was only one (1) paddle boat steamer operating on the Congo river above Stanley Falls, (effectively, the entire nation) as all the others had broken down due to lack of maintenance and rotted away at their moorings. The elite just bought speed boats and helicopters.

In African society like everywhere, the cream rises to the top except in Africa, the elite then just live off the fat and do nothing to keep the system going, let alone make things better.
Surprise surprise... chinese don't integrate. The yellow horde sees all other races as inferior dogs.

"What we want is for the budget to reach everybody," he told reporters in front of his campaign headquarters.

Glancing at a piece of paper with numbers on it, Lopez Obrador said he will take home 108,000 pesos a month, which is $5,707 at current exchange rates, and that no public official will be able to earn more than the president during his six-year term. The transition team calculates that current Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto makes 270,000 pesos a month.

Lopez Obrador said he'd like to reduce his salary even further, but that he doesn't want to cause resentment among future Cabinet members who are in some cases leaving private sector positions and academic posts that pay more than the new ceiling for public officials.

He reiterated campaign promises to cut back on taxpayer funded perks for high-level government officials, such as chauffeurs, bodyguards and private medical insurance. The official presidential residence will become a cultural center and ex-presidents will no longer receive pensions, he said.

The mysterious death of a Florida man has been solved, police say, after piecing together an elaborate suicide plot that included a weather balloon hoisting a gun into the sky.

Palm Beach Gardens police began investigating the death of Alan Jay Abrahamson as a homicide. His body was found with a bullet wound to his chest in a field near his country club home in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, on Jan. 25. Abrahamson, known to carry $200 to $300 in cash, had no cash in his wallet. His watch was missing. Police, who found no weapon or shell casings, began searching for suspects. They did find a pair of small scissors.

Surveillance video obtained a few days after the death shows Abrahamson's last moments: Wearing a long-sleeve sweatshirt, blue ball cap, shorts and sneakers, Abrahamson walks off of a sidewalk and off camera. Something was in his left hand. About 37 minutes passes. Then, a gunshot is heard.

An email found on Abrahamson's phone suggested he bought a weather balloon on Christmas day of last year. A purchase none of his friends could explain. He didn't have an interest in aerial photographer or meteorology. He also purchased helium tanks.

In February, police entertained the idea that Abrahamson's death might have been a suicide. The working theory became: He tied a gun to a string, attached it to the weather balloon, and once the shot was fired, the balloon carried the weapon away from the scene.
