I should be clearer, different isn't bad, it's just different. If there was more activity here and an app that is as useful as Relay makes using the site on my phone, I'd be more active.

Or, that, as the law requires, information regarding grand jury testimony and proceedings cannot be released, even to the highest security clearance holding members of Congress without an order from a Judge.

Grand Jury proceedings give the defendant/suspect nearly zero legal protections and zero opportunity to mount a defense. Hence the reason ONLY the lawyers involved in a Grand Jury proceeding and the members of the Jury are allowed to be given the details unless it leads to a conviction of a crime.

Hence the reason that it would literally be a serious crime for Barr or any other member of the DOJ to share that information even with the House Intel Committee unless ordered by a Court to do so, and in that case, the Court would not allow the DOJ to be the petitioner requesting to do so.

They are talking about the joke:

“I will tell you this, Russia: If you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing, I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."

That was made on July 27, 2016 after the first release of Wikileaks emails on July 22, 2016 had dominated the news cycle for a solid week.

trump is on tape ordering Russia to help him

You might want to check your timeline.

The first Podesta Emails on Wikileaks were published the evening of October 7, 2016, the contents of the leak go through March 2016. The first DNC email leaks were published on July 22, 2016.

The comment:

“I will tell you this, Russia: If you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing, I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."

Was made on July 27, 2016 - five days after the DNC emails became the biggest political story in the US and had led the coverage of every newscast for a week.

In the summer of 2014, lawyers from the State Department noticed a number of emails from Clinton's personal account, while reviewing documents requested by the House Select Committee on Benghazi. A request by the State Department for additional emails led to negotiations with her lawyers and advisors. In October, the State Department sent letters to Clinton and all previous Secretaries of State back to Madeleine Albright requesting emails and documents related to their work while in office. On December 5, 2014, Clinton lawyers delivered 12 file boxes filled with printed paper containing more than 30,000 emails. Clinton withheld almost 32,000 emails deemed to be of a personal nature. Datto, Inc., which provided data backup service for Clinton's email, agreed to give the FBI the hardware that stored the backups.

As of May 2016, no answer had been provided to the public as to whether 31,000 emails deleted by Hillary Clinton as personal have been or could be recovered.

A March 2, 2015 New York Times article broke the story that the Benghazi panel had discovered that Clinton exclusively used her own private email server rather than a government-issued one throughout her time as Secretary of State, and that her aides took no action to preserve emails sent or received from her personal accounts as required by law. At that point, Clinton announced that she had asked the State Department to release her emails. Some in the media labeled the controversy "emailgate." - Source

So, do tell us, how the fuck did the hacks happen AFTER the comment, since you just claimed that it was an instruction that was LATER carried out. The leaked emails all pre-date the comment, and the 30,000 emails - the ones that he actually commented about, still are missing.

Some of y’all still use reddit. What is your reason for not fully switching? by OC_Rookie in AskSaidIt

Because there are discussions with more than 4 comments on them. Chicken and Egg problems.

Hi. I wish someone would make an app as awesome as relay for this site - and really wish the features of RES were available, but I simply can't stand to watch what that place has become. It's actually sad, because I loved reddit and made some of my best IRL friends in history there.

Want to know why reddit is dying? Because it has been taken over by a political PR wonk, and it isn't spez. by bonked_or_maybe_not in MeanwhileOnReddit

It's worse that that - notice how immediately after coming on board reddit's "anti-war" bent disappeared and everyone started clamoring for war in Syria? You know the thing she had been tasked with drumming up support for for several years prior to taking the job?
