Treason and Perjury!

A Quid pro Quo with the Russians! Michael Flynn, the Chumph’s dirty  collusion in treason with the Russians promising them relief from Obama’s sanctions in exchange for Election Hacking.

Flynn has already been caught lying about the conversations with the Russian Ambassador. There is a law against Civilians conducting discussions on anything that has to do with the US Government with foreign powers.

National security adviser Flynn discussed sanctions with Russian ambassador, despite denials, officials say

National security adviser Michael Flynn privately discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with that country’s ambassador to the United States during the month before President Trump took office, contrary to public assertions by Trump officials, current and former U.S. officials said.

Flynn’s communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were interpreted by some senior U.S. officials as an inappropriate and potentially illegal signal to the Kremlin that it could expect a reprieve from sanctions that were being imposed by the Obama administration in late December to punish Russia for its alleged interference in the 2016 election.

Flynn on Wednesday denied that he had discussed sanctions with Kislyak. Asked in an interview whether he had ever done so, he twice said, “No.”

On Thursday, Flynn, through his spokesman, backed away from the denial. The spokesman said Flynn “indicated that while he had no recollection of discussing sanctions, he couldn’t be certain that the topic never came up.”

Officials said this week that the FBI is continuing to examine Flynn’s communications with Kislyak. Several officials emphasized that while sanctions were discussed, they did not see evidence that Flynn had an intent to convey an explicit promise to take action after the inauguration.

Flynn’s contacts with the ambassador attracted attention within the Obama administration because of the timing. U.S. intelligence agencies were then concluding that Russia had waged a cyber campaign designed in part to help elect Trump; his senior adviser on national security matters was discussing the potential consequences for Moscow, officials said.

The talks were part of a series of contacts between Flynn and Kislyak that began before the Nov. 8 election and continued during the transition, officials said. In a recent interview, Kislyak confirmed that he had communicated with Flynn by text message, by phone and in person, but declined to say whether they had discussed sanctions.

The emerging details contradict public statements by incoming senior administration officials including Mike Pence, then the vice president-elect. They acknowledged only a handful of text messages and calls exchanged between Flynn and Kislyak late last year and denied that either ever raised the subject of sanctions.

“They did not discuss anything having to do with the United States’ decision to expel diplomats or impose censure against Russia,” Pence said in an interview with CBS News last month, noting that he had spoken with Flynn about the matter. Pence also made a more sweeping assertion, saying there had been no contact between members of Trump’s team and Russia during the campaign. To suggest otherwise, he said, “is to give credence to some of these bizarre rumors that have swirled around the candidacy.”

Neither of those assertions is consistent with the fuller account of Flynn’s contacts with Kislyak provided by officials who had access to reports from U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies that routinely monitor the communications of Russian diplomats. Nine current and former officials, who were in senior positions at multiple agencies at the time of the calls, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters.

All of those officials said ­Flynn’s references to the election-related sanctions were explicit. Two of those officials went further, saying that Flynn urged Russia not to overreact to the penalties being imposed by President Barack Obama, making clear that the two sides would be in position to review the matter after Trump was sworn in as president.

The Racism in Australia – Adam Goodes Joins Retailer David Jones

Adam Goodes is a star of Australian Rules Football, and has been awarded the league’s highest honor twice. Adam is one of the most successful people in Australia with an Aboriginal background. Over his last year of playing, racist Australian fans have peppered him with racist curses and chants. Goodes has retired from Football, and has been hired as a Brand Ambassador for leading Australian retailer David Jones.

Not without the racists piping up about it…

David Jones flooded with abuse after Adam Goodes announced as ambassador

The rugged looking Adam Goodes looks to me to be a better model than the usual hyper skinny boy types employed in the fashion industry. I would think most men would relate more to a guy with a few dings.

David Jones’ Facebook page has been flooded with abusive and racist posts after former Sydney Swans star Adam Goodes was unveiled as the retailer’s latest brand ambassador.

The messages, which include remarks about indigenous Australians and dozens of boos, began appearing on Sunday soon after the retailer posted a campaign video featuring the former Australian of the Year.

Goodes is to star in the David Jones “It’s In You” campaign as one of six ambassadors, including model Jessica Gomes and You Am I frontman Tim Rogers.

He will also advise the company on reconciliation issues and its corporate social responsibility program.

“Didn’t really like David Jones as a store or chain but can be sure I will never set foot or spend a cent in there now,” a Facebook post from Michael Tierney, of Brisbane, said.

A David Jones spokeswoman reaffirmed the chain’s support of Goodes following the abusive posts, most of which Fairfax Media has opted not to publish.

“David Jones is proud to have Adam Goodes, a powerful and inspirational Australian, join its family of ambassadors,” the spokeswoman said.

“We have received significant positive feedback from our staff, customers, vendors and other stakeholders regarding Adam’s appointment and our latest brand campaign.”

The ambassadorship, the result of months of negotiations between the retailer and the two-time Brownlow medallist, is Goodes’ first new role since he retired last month.

Goodes has since revealed that he had contemplated leaving earlier, amid the booing controversy that plagued his final season.

However, the 35-year-old told the Swans’ Club Champion dinner that the outpouring of support after he sat out the round 18 clash against the Adelaide Crows at the SCG changed his mind.

“To see the supporters, our supporters, who have stuck by me for the longest part of my journey and have always been there to support me and this football club – that’s the reason why I wanted to come back,” he said.

By mid-afternoon David Jones’ Facebook page told a similar story, as supporters flooded the Goodes post with messages of support.

The most popular comments on the thread were overwhelmingly in support of the AFL super star and the department store by 2pm.

“All anyone has to do is read the comments of this video to know that Adam Goodes holds more class, patience, and bravery than everyone [sic] of these people seizing on a pack mentality to let their racism fly,” commented Josh Forward. “Great campaign, amazing ambassador.”

The massive swing of opinion may have been driven by several media reports and high profile personalities drawing attention to the abusive posts throughout the day.

Media commentator and author Tracey Spicer posted a link ot the DJs’ Facebook page on her own public Facebook site and encouraged her followers to post their approval of the new brand ambassador.
