💥BOOM💥At 5:01pm on Election Day, Trump was down in 8 of 11 key battleground states. He wasn’t allowed to, but Chris Vlatso at ABC called David Bossie to let him know. Next thing you know... Trump’s numbers start to rise. ELECTION INTERFERENCE ⁉️
ABC reprimands producer for giving data to Trump campaign
Chris Vlasto gave Trump adviser David Bossie proprietary exit polling on Election Night.
https://www.politico.com/story/2017/12/06/abc-data-trump-campaign-reprimand-284327

🔥🗳🔥The reason propriety exit poll data is not given to campaigns is it can be used to interfere w a campaign that still has hours to go. What did Lewandowski & Bossie do w the data? They gave it to Bannon, Kushner and Priebus...What are the chances it was used nefariously⁉️

🤔The numbers were so bad that they were calling it a “kill shot” and were convinced they had lost.. Miraculously, like in so many other elections that ended up w Republican wins, the numbers looked different as the night wore on...

😲Why did Vlatso give Bossie polling data⁉️They were friends from way back👇 Apparently, Vlatso was going to be rewarded w a communications job at the White House w Trump if he won...

🔑Why might Vlasto give Trump’s Team propriety data⁉️ “Vlasto had a history of doing tough (if sometimes less than airtight) reporting on the Clintons” and worked on Kenneth Starr’s team and printed the salacious details of semen on Lewinskys blue dress...
Who Is Chris Vlasto? The 'GMA' Producer Won't Work In The Trump White House After All
On Wednesday, Politico reported that Good Morning America producer Chris Vlasto was in talks with Donald Trump's transition team about taking on a role in the president-elect's nascent administration…

🔥Chris Vlasto and Jackie Judd wrote that Clinton and Monica Lewinsky were “caught in an intimate encounter in a private area of the White House” which was NOT true. cc @ZevShalev

💥🗳💥One month after Vlasto gave the Trump Campaign secret polling info that he was LOSING the election, he was offered a position as the Sr White House Communications Dir. Nobody seemed to care that his data was wrong - get it? Vlasto gave them the map to “fix” the votes‼️

🤔Ask yourself this... given everything we know about our voting machines and everything that we haven’t been told yet about Russia’s efforts to get Trump elected - that it was impossible for Russia to screw w 107K votes out of 120M in order to ensure Trump was President⁉️
🔥Vlatso’s release of exit poll data to Trump’s campaign, is more egregious than I guessed. They must have planned this in advance as a back up if Trump was behind because he released data 60 seconds after his phone 📱 was returned from a Quarantine Room😳

🎩 tip @myrubypearl
If Vlasto notifies the Trump Campaign at 5:01pm ET - 3:01pm CST that they were losing- could they have bought last minute ads or targeted a ‘get out the vote’ GOTV for certain precincts⁉️Could Mueller look at the last minute ad buys?🤔They had hours left before polls closed...

🗳I’m wondering if voting machines or tabulating computers were hacked and this particular information helped flip votes, or maybe pre-prepared fake absentee ballots were added to the picture🤔Whatever happened- Trumps numbers started rising 😳

🔥🗳🔥The odds that Trump could win given the exit poll data at 5:01pm were implausible. They called it the “Trump Shift - we call it “cheating”.
Can’t believe the GRU can hack voter equipment ⁉️Hacking our electrical grid, infrastructure, nuclear facilities, the White House- is what they do for a living. Look who’s at this hacker conference👇They are listed on Mueller’s indictments💥



🤔The financing plan for Trump Tower Moscow was to use Sberbank and/or VTB Bank which are both under US Sanctions. Trump’s role was to make sure that sanctions were lifted. therealdeal.com/2017/08/28/mee…
While researching Trump’s lawyers and how often they represent RU interests and RU mafia, I saw that Marc Kasowitz, Trump’s personal lawyer for the Mueller investigation, at the same time he was working w Trump he was also representing sanctioned Sberbank in a gravel dispute.

💥BOOM💥You know how a bunch of the traitors involved in the #TrumpRussia investigation have a “Joint Legal Defense”⁉️Well, it’s always bothered me that there was this huge overlap of Trump lawyers and Russian mafia lawyers for decades- all sharing info💥

🔥Red Notice for Steve Bannon⁉️According to a person with direct knowledge of the matter, one of the senior officials who reached out to Stone was Steve Bannon, who served as CEO of the Trump campaign during the election's final stages🔥 cnbc.com/2019/01/25/us-…

💥BOOM💥Here we go‼️In an opinion piece for Daily Caller, Stone published an exchange he had with Steve Bannon, then the chief executive of the Trump campaign. cnn.com/2018/11/01/pol…

from early voting returns on election night. I will never believe that sparsely populated red counties overcame that lead on election day.

I have very little doubt the results in NC were hacked.

Big "booms" require big evidence.

I didn't see anything in there that advanced the discussion beyond 2017.

no one has ever actually produced any proof of it.

Also Michigan had a recount, and uses optical scanners.......

The election was engineered by fake news and troll/bot accounts influencing voters. This is well documented fact.

If so, I would be flabbergasted if he doesn't address it if definitive, legally instructive evidence exists.

they've been doing it for twenty years now. The Russians just used a lot of new tools to pry apart all the fissures that exsisted in our political landscape.

were the gold standard? THen we got electronic voting... and people started asking why the exit polls didnt match the results. That is a backward question. should be why don't the results match the exit polls.

Not so much when Obama won in 2008 and 2012. Did all the vote hackers take an 8 year vacation?

otherwise it would be too obvious; people would catch on.

Clearly this is speculation only, but it seems like in 2008 and '12 the vote was so lopsided that there was no way for someone to manipulate the results in the usual "battleground" states without it being clearly apparent that something wasn't right.

Has someone done a statistical analysis of the likelihood of the 2016 election, as compared with exit poll data? Or has everyone suddenly decided, even though exit polls are considered a reasonable benchmark for validating election results in other countries, that they're just not accurate for America anymore, because people don't want to admit voting Republican or something?

My impression at the time on election day in 2016, particularly with the way things suddenly started going south with the results in key states after this site got taken down, was that somebody was pulling out all the stops as far as electronic dirty tricks. So, I would not be in any way surprised to learn that the entire election was stolen, including changing vote results in a couple of key places to put him just barely over the top for the electoral college.
