Former CIA Director: 'Smoke But No Fire In Trump's Russia Ties'

Former CIA deputy director Mike Morell was on Face the Nation

MSNBC: Clinton Ally Says Smoke, But No Fire: No Russia-Trump Collusion

Former Acting CIA Director Michael Morell, who endorsed Hillary Clinton and called Donald Trump a dupe of Russia, cast doubt Wednesday night on allegations that members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

Morell, who was in line to become CIA director if Clinton won, said he had seen no evidence that Trump associates cooperated with Russians. He also raised questions about the dossier written by a former British intelligence officer, which alleged a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia.

How many months did the Russian hacking story go before there was leak and we learned of the CIA software that can lay false fingerprints.

It was 6 to 9 months.

Maybe the FSB has a program like the CIA's and they can make it look like the CIA wiretapped Trump and thus get Bathhouse behind bars, which BTW won't slow him down.

BamBam goes to Polynesia and so far no wife.

Who does not like the tropics so long there is maid service and air conditioning.

Maybe Michelle does not. Maybe she wants to put some work in.
