George W. Bush: 'Clear evidence Russians meddled' in election
Washington Post ^ | Feb 8, 2018 | By Kristine Phillips

Former president George W. Bush said he believes Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, departing from President Trump, who has been skeptical of intelligence agencies’ findings that the Kremlin had interfered to help him win.

“There’s pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled. Whether they affected the outcome is another question,” the 43rd president said at a summit in Abu Dhabi on Thursday. He added: “It’s problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system. Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results.”

Bush has been critical of Russia, slamming it for working to “exploit our country’s divisions.”

“The Russian government has made a project of turning Americans against each other,” Bush said during a forum in New York in October.

Report: FBI Informant Tells Congress Moscow Routed Millions to Influence the Clintons

Breitbart News ^ | Feb. 8, 2018 | Kristina Wong
Posted on 2/8/2018, 11:38:47 AM by Innovative

An FBI informant told three congressional committees in a written statement that Moscow routed millions to America with the expectation it would benefit Bill Clinton’s charitable efforts as then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pushed through a “reset” in U.S.-Russia relations, the Hill reported.

The informant, Douglas Campbell, said in the statement, which was obtained by the Hill, that Russian nuclear executives told him Moscow hired American lobbying firm APCO Worldwide because it would influence the Obama administration and specifically Hillary Clinton.

I had a major falling out with my father over the 2000 election.

My father hated the Bush’s ever since the 1980 primaries when he ran a hateful, globalist campaign against Reagan.

He refused to vote Bush and said he and Gore were one and the same.

I argued fiercely against him- to my eternal shame.
I was a young and ignorant fool.

Obama moralized America, but Obama at least moralized other nations like Africa or India too, Bush Rino however resorts to localized Marxism, bashing America and never showing that Russia meddles also in Syria, Abu Dabhi and elsewhere

Bush is a cock scucking pooddle with a form of moral pride to it.

No wonder his daughters are fubar, going abortion or even lesbian, who knows, if it was financially practicable

Clear evidence that George W. Bush is now a supporting DEMOCRAT...and no longer a REPUBLICAN..

He is still crying over little bro, Jebby losing out in 2016...
I regret being a strong supporter of GWB....and I will never again support a BUSH FAMILY MEMBER for any office...
