    Nope. He said "Maybe you can find the missing emails"

He's been so consistent at it that he's mostly reduced his impact to background noise.
    Talk about an ironic post.

As for your second point, and just to show how misinformed you are, in Helsinki, Putin himself said that the Russians favored Trump in the election and when you put that together with the fact that they interfered then they obviously interfered in order to help Trump win.
    It would be no surprise if the Russians favored Trump in that their goal was to support underdogs and stir up dissatisfaction. I doubt that they expected Trump to win.

    He did at times and at other instances he pointed to his authority. That was why I said he was close to the fallacy. I did not say he comitted it.

    Yes, I knew you would try and pull the genetic fallacy, which is why I also quoted Democrat Mark Warner saying much the same thing.

    But keep telling yourself that the two top members of the Senate Intelligence Committee who despise Trump and would never lie for him or twist the truth in his favor don't know what they're talking about.

    Except that your knowedge is not superior because the Russians hacked into 70 Clinton accounts after Trump requested they do so.

    And yet the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee says "no factual evidence" that the Trump campaign did anything wrong, and the vice chairman says there's no indication that the Russian government favored one candidate over the other. But I guess you know better.

    No, that's not how the fallacy works. Especially when the explanations have been given. And my expertise had been demonstrated multiple times here on the topic.

    So you need to provide something more than just calling yourself an authority.
    Something more than telling someone how absurd it is to claim a powered off and disassembled server can be hacked? Do I really need to give you a lesson on network availability and how a hard drive works? Seriously?

    Reasons, evidence and facts should be easy to provide for an authority it will work a lot better than writing stuff like: "Sorry, bro. This is what I do for a living. For the DoD."
    In matters of utter absurdity, like claiming a powered off and disassembled server can be accessed from another country via the Internet, nothing more is necessary. That you don't accept that isn't my problem.

    I thought he joked about them releasing what they already had hacked.

    Who is changing the subject? We are talking public policies. My personal sins have nothing to do with what policies I would like to see enacted. I don't want public policies enacted that normalize sin, nor do I want to say that my sins aren't sins. How about you try being specific and not hurling elephants of "personal reflection" which could mean anything...
    Personal reflection is the individual reflecting on, among other things, the policies they support, whether they are justifiable, fair and decent. If all you can do is point to the others, you lack the ability to reflect on this.
