Sure does, you'd think with Bannon involved it would be far more sophisticated and creditable, doesn't he have some supposed intelligence?

What computer shops make copies of hard drives to hand off to a third party? Does this fart-knocker do this with every repair?

Just following along with the Scooby Doo theme - appears to have happened in 2014? If so, did the Beau Biden foundation have stickers? Was the sticker on the laptop a match?

Yeah, click through for a long thread from this guy


LOL. The NY Post doesn't even have the actual email files! They have IMAGE files of the correspondence. This is comically BS. I mean, the Post might even be on the hook for election tampering.

I know if I had a mysterious unclaimed computer with a "Trump Org" sticker on it, the first thing I do is make an unverifiable copy of the hard drive and send it to Keith Olbermann.

It's a good thing that email came from ukraine@gmaill.com, or the public would have no idea that source was from the Ukraine.

I mean, this story is so full of obvious holes that it should be immediately trashed and discredited by anyone with half a brain.

If the obviously false premise is true, that some DE mac repair shop happened upon an anonymous laptop and then copied it and sent the copy to Rudy Giuliani a year ago before turning it over to the FBI...that's a prosecutable crime against both this repair guy and Giuliani, so the authorities can start there.

Hold on there, you're hitting them with logic that's not fair, playing dirty.

Fun fact, by polling statistics alone, that NE2 and Iowa data also leans in favor of Biden. It's just the built-in incumbency/demographics adjustment that keeps it leaning Trump. Texas currently leans by about a point and a half towards Trump in polling only.

I believe a built-in regression (because there is still time until election day) also damps down the model.

The Georgia - Iowa - Texas - Alaska group of states would be massive if they shifted to blue since those four states encompass five senate races, as well.

His ignorance and stupidity is boundless - PR vote for me

Why stop with PR? I think Guam and the Midway Island should vote for him as well although, I wasn't certain Midway had a population apparently, it has a population of 40. Forgot about Greenland, they to, since he wanted to trade PR for Greenland. Do not recall if that was 1 for 1 trade or was looking for Greenland and cash?
