Don’t forget that an FBI contract “lure” contacted George in Europe and hired him to do some consulting work. The lure tried to dirty George up and gave him $10,000 in bills, surely marked bills, as a fee. When George arrived in the US shortly after, the FBI stopped him before he passed through customs. They thought they’d bag George with the cash. They probably would even have claimed the money came from a Russian. The FBI blew it, because George had left that money behind in Europe. If I remember the story correctly.two Russians that requested meeting at trump tower were granted clearances by obama at fusiongps request

Greg M says:

The Russian TROLLS/BOTS are working overtime in the comments section. They get paid for every response, it's best to just BLOCK them and give them a thumbs down.

Joseph Pace says:

Ugh. Obama isn't That much better than Trump. Maybe a little, though. I wish Obama would stop fighting Bernie people.

Mary Czarnik says:

Obama was the one that said you can not bring mfg jobs back to American now he wants to take credit for that. You put America 8 trillion in debt. What did he do for gun violence and shootings in Chicago while in office 8 yrs. "Nothing". Diversity is not working. You brainwashed the White people for 8 yrs to hate each other and now encouraging the college students. Let the students think for themselves. Now every time some says something they don't like it is called racists or White supremacist.

Douglas Thornstone says:

I have spent years listening to the afro yanks & they all say they are waiting for putin to launch the ballistics & then they are going to rise up & slaughter every single caucasian American that exists. They say they already are holding many of them as slaves on their militant training bases in America. I love afros but they are determined to wipe you out as soon as russia attacks. They are even calling each other 'comrads' now

Obumer is the face and voice of hypocrisy and lies.

SBRINKERHOFF says:

ANY ORGANIZATION THAT DOESN'T DEFEND FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE

Derek Woodford says:

CBC website banned me from commenting on that website for a month… It's just a matter of time before conservative voices across the country are muzzled and the propaganda the CBC spews has poisoned the minds of the weak.
