I still cannot believe that General David Petraeus would have an extant security clearance. He was caught sharing highly classified matter with his mistress & had a criminal conviction. How Petraeus could still have a valid security clearance is insane. Does Hillary Clinton?
If David Petraeus still has a security clearance after both sharing highly classified material with his mistress & incurring a criminal conviction, then the whole thing is a complete joke. Hillary is probably consulting on communications security.

An example of how broken and Trump-centric all the "Russia" hysteria is that none of the serious media have looked at Manafort's Hapsburg (yes, sic) group & their activities in central Europe in support of Russian objectives in context of Trump's tirade dw.com/en/european-po…
When the final history of this era is written re "Russia", the account will begin in the Soviet collapse & the rush of largely American vagabonds into the Soviet ruins to work with oligarchs, which then became respectable as the state distributed access to Russian energy.

The grovelling querying of Mark Zuckerberg by these Senators who either have no idea what FB does or who are effectively on the FB payroll is why, I suspect, after Trump comes an even more Caesarian uprising.
Everything Zuckerberg is saying is not aimed at US regulators-who FB knows they can effectively bribe, donate or frustrate into nugatory activity-but at the EU. The Europeans have many faults but they steadfastly refuse to view CEOs as more than mafioso, unlike woshipful Yanks

This @HISTORY documentary on Putin is okay albeit misses basic reality that any Russian leader would be doing what Putin does. There is no Russian demo for disarmament, liberalism, gay marriage etal of kind these commentators dream of. Westerners need to grow up
This Western delusion persists that the few liberally minded Russian dissidents who speak English represent any sizeable domestic demo...it is delusional and dangerous.
