And that's because you Trumplodytes said it was okay for him to not release his tax returns.

It will be news if Julian Assange/WikiLeaks decides to release it, or someone in one of our intelligence agencies who Trump has been insulting lately leaks it.

The single source for that story is an ex-FBI agent named John Guandolo who resigned from his position with the Bureau in December 2008 after he was caught engaging in a sexual relationship with a key confidential source in the midst of a corruption investigation of a Louisiana politician.

Since then, he has created a burgeoning second career training law enforcement groups to identify potential covert Islamic threats to the United States.

You're developing a credibility problem using leftist fake news sources

Reuters and CNN are not FAKE news sources.

This thing about conflating legitimate news sources with 'fake' news sources is just the latest right wing tactic to delegitimize the media.

You could argue that some news sources have a bias or get things wrong from time to time.
But a 'fake' news source is one that makes up stories out of whole cloth that have no basis in reality and are solely designed as clickbait.

That is not what Reuters or CNN do.

they report on black lives matter without a disclaimer that "hands up, dont shoot" never happened. Fake news.

SO what if he did? Is it illegal to do business in Russia?

That would depend on the type of business wouldn't it?

Then he cannot be trusted - fake news. :)

Not the story that is the subject of this thread.

Isn't it ironic that the same people who were so willing to believe leaked material from the Russians through WikiLeaks, now won't believe material leaked by our own Intel agencies?

Carl Bernstein doing some reporting on this now and John McCain's name came up.

CARL BERNSTEIN: It came from a former British MI-6 intelligence agent who was hired by a political research -- opposition research -- firm in Washington who was doing work about Donald Trump for both Republican and Democratic candidates opposed to Trump.

They were looking at Trump's business ties.

They saw some questionable things about Russians, about his businesses in Russia.

They, in turn, hired this MI-6 former investigator.

He then came up with additional information from his Russian sources.

He was very concerned by the implications of it.

He then took it to an FBI colleague that he had known in his undercover work for years.

He took it to this FBI man in Rome who turned it over to the bureau in Washington in August.

And then a former British ambassador to Russia, independently, was made aware of these findings and he took the information to John McCain, Senator John McCain of Arizona, in the period just after the election, and showed it to McCain -- additional findings.

McCain was sufficiently disturbed by what he read, to take it to FBI Director James Comey himself personally.

They had a five-minute meeting. The two men, very little was said.

McCain turned it over to him and is now awaiting what the FBI’s response is to that information. ​
