That's very nice about the NYT retracting the story and all that, but the Russian hacking narrative cannot die.

It is a fundamental doctrine of a major religion.

Evidences:

Manhattan Prosecutor Joins Inquiry Into Russian Meddling in Election
The New York Times
One federal prosecutor in Manhattan is being promoted to become the new chief of the public corruption unit, while another is departing to join Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The new chief of the corruption unit in Manhattan is Tatiana R. Martins, who in 2015 helped to convict Dean G. Skelos, the Long Island Republican who was the majority leader of the State Senate until shortly after his arrest that year.

Ms. Martins, the deputy chief of the unit, succeeds Andrew D. Goldstein, who will join Mr. Mueller’s team after having led the public corruption unit for about a year.

More from that other Religion of Peace.

Just spit balling but what can we do to put Hillary into her rightful place that is the White House?

It is becoming more and more clear that the election was dirty and that Trump is not
a legitimate President so can we stop playing nice and hit the streets in a massive #s if
it is proven that Trump, the Republicans, and the Russians worked to rig the election?

I know there is no Constitutional mechanism for such a move but things have changed
and the will of the American people should be followed. Let's start on the 4th this year
to make it a "real day of liberty and freedom."

This was an act of war by a hostile foreign power.

It was a coup.

And we had treason. Mitch and Paul Ryan i'm looking @ you.
Start of a lo-o-o-ong thread. And although not 100% agreement tactically speaking, there doesn't seem to be any questioning of the "facts".
Not that I read more than 20 or so of the 100+ responses.

A Harvard professor lacks critical thinking and doesn't know how to check sources.

I'm sure DJ Groethe made similar comments. Troofers are working off a confirmation bias from a failed election strategy. They can't let go.

From the story linked by Anax:
... Quite a claim, and there’s only one problem:

The dude he is talking about wasn’t even on the damn plane. ...
Somebody warned him. :o

Religion.

There is unfortunately nothing unusual about a person who is intelligent and capable of critical thinking turning it off for religion.

Evelyn Waugh for example. Or GK Chesterton. :coolspecs:

For anyone in denial about Russian Trooferism being a much larger plague than Birtherism.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGcdPakoytg

Ben Shapiro goes on Bill Maher to discuss "Civil discourse". Bill Maher thinks Trump's tweets are a larger issue than personal harassment, violence, and doxxing.

But here is where it goes weird, Maher comes out as a Russia Troofer when he realizes there isn't a right wing equivalency for the Democrat violence and harassment that has been going on.

I don't watch Maher, but how common is Russia Trooferism in the mainstream media?

Fuck.

Did RCC admit to being a Russia Troofer in a thread as well recently? The derangement is far and wide, much worse than previous conspiracy theory nonsense.

Besides being a Russia Troofer he's an Antifa denier and doesn't believe the USA has the right to exist as a sovereign nation. IOW he's a mainstream Democrat.

I think I have a simple explanation for the Cognitive Dissonance some people have.

As the evidence piles up that the Obama administration weaponized the IRS (already proved actually), CIA, FBI to attack political opponents...

You either have to put your fingers in your ears and keep repeating "collusion" like some sort of mental patient or realize Obama was more like Nixon than you believed.
