It takes more than internet politics debate to get me crabby! Well, really crabby anyway.
Here I was originally going to tell you in my post above to be "peaceful", once I convert you over from the darkside!
Alright, fair enough. The right answer might have been: "My people know I would never allow that. They would never do that. I can assure you that would never be tolerated in my organization, and nothing like that has ever come to my attention"
But that is just a more thought-out sidestep, so your point is reasonable.
But don't expect that to remain.
For your convenience: Donald Trump’s News Conference: Full Transcript and Video
Trump avoided the question. He only responded with a "No" reluctantly at the elevator:
"Trump did not specifically address questions regarding whether members of his staff were in contact with Russian officials during the campaign. When NBC News repeated that question to Trump afterwards as the president-elect approached the elevator to exit the room, he answered "No.""
And to stem predictable confusion, the lie is "So there was no avoidance of the question"- as there is documented, published, and verifiable avoidance of the question.
Thank you, Quazi!

Tres, I believe you are incorrect that most people don't get daily communications via Twitter or Facebook or whatever. That's where they communicate, and that's one of the reasons Trump won.
Hillary's past record stood on its own. And I saw nothing new.
What I saw of the Trump stuff was the Democrats sitting around a haystack, looking for the needle, and trying to turn a straw into prime beef.
But, everything in here is biased and becoming more so; those who support this asshole contend it shows the MSM can't be trusted, as if that's a new bleat...
However since when has Captain Twitter ever been afraid of the MSM?
Stand back and look at the over all. The people most hurt by this alleged attack, Hillary, the DNC, Obama, have remained silent, have not gotten political and appear to be simply letting things develop. If this were part of an opposition strategy to undermine Trump, there would be a co-campaign to help move it where they want it to go.
Trump won't even allow his name to be associated with the leak taking the staunchest 'no comment" stand is his political career...and is miles away from the previous night and his Twit: "Fake news...." I would say that Trump's uncharacteristic self control also implies there is a "there" there. His lack of response and the wandering tirade show he does NOT have the full story, and appears to be in the dark as many others.
Personally, I have the feeling this is a nasty albatross that will simply refuse to rot away
