'Don't Boo – Vote'

"There has never been anyone more qualified" to be president, he said, including himself and Bill Clinton. ("I hope you don't mind, Bill, but I was just telling the truth, man.")

When he invoked Donald Trump's name at one point, and the crowd booed, Obama chastened them. "Don't boo — vote," he said.

"The Donald is not really a plans guy. He's not really a facts guy, either," Obama said. "He calls himself a business guy, which is true, but I have to say, I've met many business men and women who've achieved remarkable success without leaving a trail of lawsuits and unpaid workers and people feeling like they got cheated."

"I promise you, our strength, our greatness, does not depend on Donald Trump," he said, saying later on that "the American Dream is something no wall will ever contain."

"The richest thing about Donald Trump is his hypocrisy.

Michael Bloomberg, elected mayor of New York City as a Republican, offered a forceful denunciation of fellow New York billionaire Donald Trump on Wednesday at the Democratic convention, describing the GOP presidential nominee as a "risky, reckless, and radical choice."

One of the nation's richest men, Bloomberg drew upon his business background in his unorthodox convention speech in Philadelphia to make the case that a Trump administration would be disastrous for the nation's economy.

"Trump has left behind a well-documented record of bankruptcies and thousands of lawsuits and angry shareholders and contractors who feel cheated and disillusioned customers who feel ripped off," said Bloomberg, now an independent. "Trump says he wants to run the nation like he's running his business? God help us."

"Truth be told," said Bloomberg, "the richest thing about Donald Trump is his hypocrisy."

IF Feinstein and Schiff are asking for it, they already know what IT is.

HACK & PUBLISH
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/jul/27/donald-trump-russia-hillary-clinton-emails-dnc-hack


There’s a new development on the hack of the DNC e-mails. The Hill is reporting that the ranking members of the Senate and House Intelligence committees (Feinstein and Schiff) are requesting that Obama release the intelligence related to the hack:

Dems urge Obama to release info on Russian links to DNC hack

“Given the grave nature of this breach and the fact that it may ultimately be found to be a state-sponsored attempt to manipulate our presidential election, we believe a heightened measure of transparency is warranted,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) wrote in a Wednesday letter to President Obama.

Feinstein and Schiff are the ranking members of the Senate and House Intelligence committees, respectively.

The two lawmakers asked that the administration declassify any intelligence assessments that could “illuminate potential Russian motivations for what would be an unprecedented interference in a U.S. presidential race, and why President Putin could potentially feel compelled to authorize such an operation, given the high likelihood of eventual attribution.”

Famed reporter Carl Bernstein says Donald Trump’s controversial comments Wednesday on Russia should end his presidential run.

“Today, we have reached a tipping point in this election,”
Bernstein said Wednesday on CNN. "This is a disqualifying event for a president of the United States.”

“I never met Putin. I don’t know who Putin is,”

“I never met Putin. I don’t know who Putin is,” the Republican presidential nominee said Wednesday at a Florida news conference. “He said one nice thing about me. He said I’m a genius. I said ‘Thank you very much’ to the newspaper, and that was the end of it. I never met Putin.”


SO, how would he KNOW ANY OF THIS?:



"I got to know him very well because we were both on '60 Minutes,' we were stablemates, and we did very well that night," Trump said.

Giuliani re: Trump/Putin: "But, gosh knows, President Obama....."

When asked about Trump’s remarks earlier in the day calling for Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s “missing” State Department emails, Giuliani suggested to The Daily Beast that foreign intervention in elections is not uncommon, and alleged that President Obama impacted the outcome of a recent Israeli election:
