    Let’s see, the Russians fixing the election, falls on Obama, voting fraud, well in Detroit it was Clinton’s votes that were questionable, collusion, well Comey basically said under oath NO and if anyone was colluding it was Lynch, and obstruction of justice, no crime, so now the Berkshire edge tries again to pass off a Nothing Burger as news. So far Ben is 0 for a 100.
    Oh and until Hillary lost the election Russia was not an evil empire.

      Well said Patrick. And, the Times article is as pathetic as “The Orange Alert “.

        And the world is flat and the sun revolves around the Earth…. right guys?
        Oh, no????

    2. Bernie says:

      Clinton is not the president.
      Apple and Orange.

    All that can be said of Fennell and Farina is that there is none so blind as he who will not see.

    1. Steve Farina says:

      Which is why it was “okay” that Hillary conspired with the DNC to shut out all other opponents in the primaries, including Bernie.
      There is no story here…just desperate attempts to make something out of nothing…
      And the blind can’t see that

  3. George Grumbach says:

    You have to want to be blind not to see that Mini-Don, and Manafort and Kushner, were all eager to get dirt on Hillary from a Russian government source, although they failed. Failure is not an excuse for collusion. And what about all their lies about never having met with the Russians? Hillary’s so-called conspiracy with the DNC is not quite the same thing as collusion with the Russians, is it?

    1. Steve Farina says:

      I’m not sticking up for what they did. Just pointing out it is a non-story. Is Hill/DNC worse than Trump/Russia (which so far has yielded nothing but sorry reporting)? I don’t know…the people seemed to have been swinging in favor of Bernie, and maybe more would have if he actually had a chance at the nomination…we will never know because he was shut out of any victory before the process even started.
      At least with the info we have on the general election, there was crap put out there about both candidates and the people did what their “parties” encouraged them to do…vote for the lesser of two evils….
      Personally, I’d rather see stories about what the Constitutional justification is for bombing the heck out of the Middle East, the US role in influencing other sovereign nation’s elections, and how we reign in our national debt when both parties in power continue to spend more than is taken in….

      Patrick, I will not descend to your level of ad hominem diatribes. Your incoherent and largely ungrammatical rantings in your first comment and your most recent one speak eloquently for themselves. Of course, your demand for proof that Trump and Putin worked together is a red herring. And you cannot deny the words that came out of Don Jr.’s own emails that prove that he and campaign chair Manafort and son-in-law Kushner all were informed that the Russian government was willing to provide Trump’s campaign with dirt on Hillary to help Trump win the election, but instead of informing the FBI or refusing to go forward, all three eagerly attended a meeting with the lawyer they thought was a Russian gov’t agent. Their only non-excuse (so far) is that the Russian lawyer didn’t give them what they hoped to get. It’s pretty lame to insist that Donald Trump himself has no responsibility when 3 of his innermost confidantes leap to do his bidding and then he claims that they did nothing wrong.

    3. Patrick Fennell says:

      After a long winded rant what you really mean is you can not prove Trump committed a crime with Russia. You could have admitted that in one short sentence. With all the leaks if there was a sliver of proof it would be front page in the NY Sometimes.
