    Sen. Mark Warner of the Senate Intel Committee contacts a Russian Oligarch via text messages in hopes to be able to directly talk with Christopher Steele, author of discredited dossier.

    So a sitting senator investigating Russian collusion with President Trump, actually colluding with a Russian... The far left on this board will never care for real news as I expect this story like many others that will continue to break as... 'meh'

    Not sure who is far left to you, but you should let them speak for themselves, of course.

    I don't trust fox one iota, and for good reason, but I'm interested to know more about this contact.

    Interviewing Steele sounds like an appropriate step for any investigation into the Russian meddling, TBH. In what exact capacity senator warner reached out is my main question.

    One fox article you like shouldn't blind you to the sum of all reporting in this awful business. Again, despite what your media desperately needs you to believe: liberals are your neighbors, not your enemies.

    A few notes.
    1.) The dossier has not been discredited.
    2.) Talking to a Russian, trying to get in contact with someone, is not collusion.
    3.) An investigator trying to talk to the author of an underlying piece of evidence, likely for some clarifications, is not a scandal.

    Wow... you are a day late and many dollars short dragging this up. This ridiculous effort to distract and confuse has already been shot down. This was reported by Warner back in the fall when both Warner and republican senator (and senate intelligence leader) Richard Burr both said they reached out to Steele. And senator Rubio later squashed this story. You really do need to avoid using Fox news and trump for your news...

    Not only did a sitting senator try and talk to Steele, so did the sitting head of the House Intel committee. Also unlike almost all of the people in Trump's cabinet and family, Warner didn't lie about it. Since some of the Steele Dossier has already been verified and more of it is still unknown it makes sense to try and talk to some of the sources.

    And now the DHS is attempting to claim that NBC News put out "fake news" with this on-air interview of an DHS official:

    Do we elect the executioner or is he appointed? How does that work? If he ran, could we just drone him?

    A national cry? I suppose it would be cathartic to get in a good cry. And, maybe a group hug after that?

    A sitting President ignoring a foreign power interference in our election. That to me is room for removal.
