So I guess this is the new source of truth for the Trumpers.

    So are you on record saying it is ok for a hostile foreign power to disrupt our electoral process? You're good with that?

    I don't buy that facebook trolls from Russia had any effect on the election. You guys believe non citizens should have a vote in our elections for Gods sake. I'm good with a FREE and open internet that can't be manipulated by whatever administration is in charge at the time. I like unbiased internet. I like untaxed internet. You realize when they form an agency to “oversee” the internet we’re going to have to pay for it right? Hmmm,, maybe a nice usage tax based on how much data you consume would be fair…. F that!

    Net Neutrality (RIP) had nothing to do with government ownership of the Internet or its content. Nor was it about the majority political party having any power to manipulate it. At all!!! It was about regulating it like a public utility. I hope you enjoy it when your favorite sites are throttled to a snail's pace because they are now owned by AT&T or Comcast. Have fun shelling out extra money each month to those companies. And where in the bloody he!! did you read or hear about the Federal Government taxing the Internet? Alex Jones?

    Please find me one Democrat who wants to enfranchise non-citizens. Just one, Vasily.

    If you think the Russians had no influence on our electoral process why don't we invite some other countries to help. Maybe Venezuela? Mexico? Iran? No harm, right?

    +1 for using tautology. That's a word you don't see every day.

    Whether or not they had an effect, it was an attack. BTW this entire post demonstrates that you never did read Sen Warner's White Paper.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Comic I didn’t have to read past the first few pages to know I’m against it.

    DUTY TO IDENTIFY INAUTHENTIC ACCOUNTS.
    Alot of my friends use VPN's to protect their identitys online. They aren't (((RUSSIANS))) and they aren’t bots, they aren't spreading fake news, and they aren’t evil hackers trying to take over the world. They simply don’t want to be tracked. The duty to identify inauthentic accounts means they would be targets and likely blacklisted or whatever they plan to do. That’s as far as I made it to know I'm against it. Keep you slimy fingers outa my internet.

    That is because you were told to not like it.

    Do you realize that you still don't know what you are talking about?

    Actually I do, but it's pointless to argue with you. I thought you guys were all about keeping big brother out of your buisness. Suddenly the FBI, CIA, NSA, are the lefts most trusted partners. That's f-in crazy. It's hard to respect an ideal that doesn't stand for anything.

    It really is funny how the partisan view of the FBI, CIA etc, has flipped, but then again - except for criticism of Jaye Edgar - Dems never went around claiming that the FBI and security services were part of a cabal to overthrow the president. Thank the GOP for that bit of craziness.

    Well, when the evidence for multiple crimes is in plain view, it is hard to not come down on their side of things.

    Jesus, the guy obstructs justice a couple of times/week.

    You cannot refuse to read the very document you criticize and then claim any knowledge. You are a fool if you think you can have any expectation of privacy on the internet. Only a conservative would believe that colluding with a foreign government is patriotism, Just remember next time it might be a Democrat that Putin prefers.
