Dick Cheney: Putin/Trump Campaign Election Interference "an Act of War"

Original post made by Roberts, Woodside: other, on Mar 28, 2017

When you lose Darth Vader... from the Independent:

“There’s no question there was a very serious effort made by Putin and his government, his organisation, to interfere in major ways with our basic fundamental democratic processes,” Mr Cheney said during a speech at a business conference in New Delhi, India.

Chairman Devin Nunes 'should recuse himself from Russia investigation'

“In some quarters, that would be considered an act of war. I think it’s a kind of conduct and activity we will see going forward. We know he’s attempted it previously in other states in the Baltics.

"I would not underestimate the weight that we, as Americans, assign to the Russian attempts to interfere with our internal political processes," he added.

Always thought Cheney was more valdamot than Darth.

Either way - game recognize game.

Looks like Trump finally sat still long enough for a little lesson on North Korea... from the Wall Street Journal:

"He said they hit it off during their first discussion. Mr. Trump said he told his Chinese counterpart he believed Beijing could easily take care of the North Korea threat. Mr. Xi then explained the history of China and Korea, Mr. Trump said.

“After listening for 10 minutes, I realized it’s not so easy,” Mr. Trump recounted. “I felt pretty strongly that they had a tremendous power” over North Korea,” he said. “But it’s not what you would think.”"

Wow. It turns out to be "complicated". Whodathunk it.

Art of the Deal - "but it’s not what you would think."
