    Democratic Groups Paid Ransom Demanded by Russian Hackers to Keep Protester Funding Secret

    1) Not the most credible website.

    2) Why go outside the party when the Dems have plenty of computer experts? Why go outside the US and risk being blackmailed by the Russians or being discovered by the Republicans, either by chance or the Russians got mad and give the Republicans the info.

    3) I say the story is horsecrap.

    Well, Bloomberg is the original report and it tells a somewhat different story than the Breitbart piece.

    ==> IF <== the Democrats actually paid ransom, then it is in fact THEY who may have colluded with a foreign government.

    (After all, we really don't know who's ultimately on the other end of that ransom money).

    But I'm still stuck on the piece that no one's talking about: payment records.

    Even the Bloomberg article says payment records exist. I'm wondering why someone isn't going after them.

    This could be a really big big BIG scandal. I mean, look - payments. You have money coming in, money going out. So okay, we know about the going out part, but what about the coming in part? Where did that money actually come from? Was it DNC campaign money, or was it earmarked from some outside source (like Soros maybe)?

    In either case, what we have here is party officials paying agitators.

    It would be the same as, say, if it could be proven that party officials paid union thugs to bust up a worker's gathering.

    It's the establishment paying the fringe to cause trouble, is what it is.

    And not only that, but Trump should be tweeting about Astroturf!

    I have no doubt that some of the protestors at Trump rallies were on the payroll. but I have some basic questions ....

    1. Exactly what law have I broken if I pay a protester to protest something I don't like? (even a political adversary)

    2. If I pay someone who is extorting me, what specific law have I broken?

    If the answer to both of these questions is that no specific law was broken by the payers, then we know the payers are guilty of "dirty tricks", but not criminal and will not have any criminal consequences.

    Buying votes is illegal. What promises were made for the pay? Intimidating voters is also a crime. Paying someone to intimidate for you does not absolve the payer of guilt because he did not participate. There were crimes you are just no looking hard enough.

    I would not have any doubt about this. Democrat leaders are Demons from hell.
