    There is no real dirt. That’s what lefties don’t understand. As repulsive as Trump is he has no real dirt. That’s why Democrats are always stuck saying, “Well Trump might have done this, could have done that, wants to do this”.

    Itís time both sides quit with investigations motivated by partisan politics and started running the country instead.

    I still remember that one time during the Mueller investigation...Buzzfool came out, swearing up and down they had an FBI source that said Trump told Cohen to lie to Congress. The Democrats in the House went bug****, starting screeching "Impeachment!", and then Mueller gave them a nasty case of blue balls by saying, in effect, "Not true".
    Even worse than that. These hackers hacked a bunch of stuff from a law firm that even the left realize had no connection to Trump and apparently used a search engine looking for the word Trump and came up with some hits that were related to the verb trump instead of the name Trump and apparently felt those were worth 42 million.

    Why would you bring up your own thread? In that thread, you tried to act like it was some sort of example of 'the left' promising dirt would take down Trump and then claim victory because when the hackers released stuff it wasn't damning (then denied doing so. Then admitted doing so)?

    "The left" most certainly wasn't promising these hackers had anything. And your own thread confirmed that the hackers did not have anything. But then this happens:

    Why bring up your own thread, which shows your narrative about "the left" to be false? Worse, why bring up such a thread here, then keep trying to push your narrative?



    Let me bring down to Earth and back to the subject:
    this is not a story about "the left", or any imaginary victories you want to claim over it. This is a story about some hackers who aren't great at criming. They hacked a firm, BET that something in their huge 750ish gig trove is damning, and demanded money on that bet. They did it before reviewing everything in that huge trove (it'd take some real resources to get through that much stuff, especially since a lot is going to be legal documents, correspondence and the like).

    Get it? There's no "the left" here. Just some crappy criminal hackers who overreached. They are currently trying to suggest they held the sensitive stuff back and the release of non-damaging stuff was to demonstrate they have stuff. Pretty stupid if you ask me. You need to release at least a little damaging stuff if you're going to try to extort money on a threat of releasing more.

    So, that's point one: this is about crappy criminal hackers, not "the left."

    And the point you introduced into this thread: Moderate Right likes to play hackish partisan games in which he makes everything about "the left" and Trumpists, then dishonestly declare said victory in those games. I wouldn't have introduced this point, especially not if I was Moderate Right, but I am merely Mr. Person.

    You guys are still fantasizing, just like you did with the Mueller report and the impeachment.
