Controversy[edit]

This page is intended to discuss specific improvements to the article; it is not a forum to argue about politics.

This article seems biased, I for one do not believe in this being legitimate and many others don't either, however, I appreciate the information commonly believed put into an article. I have no problem with that, but even some of the most minor and controversial are stated very strongly as facts, with no indication of controversy. It doesn't help that there is no controversy section to point out, so to the unknowledgeable reader it appears to be completely agreed upon facts rather than controversy. If one of these or something similar can be instated — leaving the article as it is but still acknowledging the controversies — this would be a lot more accurate and unbiased representation of the topic.

Can you give some examples?Slatersteven (talk) 15:46, 11 May 2018 (UTC)


Completely agree with Guymanforget.

Didn't take reading past the first sentence to read bias here. The way it is laid out suggests these conclusions to be written in stone and there is a sizeable community that does not concur with that assumption. Please correct to reflect neutrality!

This article reads like a DNC talking point paper. Not a single American has been convicted of collusion with the Russians and yet the article states as FACT it took place. Another example is the only references to David Nunes are colored to support Russian collusion which couldn't be further from his position. Also why is Crossfire Hurricane linking to this article?!? I'm going to try adding a link the The Nation's article on the technical details of the DNC hack that gives evidence to it being a leak not a hack and see how it goes.

That Nation bit has been considered and rejected. You can search the talk page archives to see the discussion. SPECIFICO talk 01:50, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
No, I prefer to live in the real world where dissent is still seen as a useful path to ferreting out the truth. This page is yours. Have a nice life.User:Tvillars (talk) 02:56, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Not all dissent is good decent. It's important not to fall into the trap of false equivalence. If anyone feels this article is biased, they should make a case for the specific sections based on language and sources used. Azuefeldt (talk) 07:04, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

This article is entirely biased IMHO to damage donald trump's reputation. Like he said. There is no evidence of him in cahoots with the Soviets and that this whole thing is just a witch hunt! --Zgrillo2004 (talk) 05:09, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

You are 100% right that there is no evidence of Trump in cahoots with the Soviets!Volunteer Marek (talk) 05:11, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
At least we can agree the USSR had nothing to do with the election! PackMecEng (talk) 12:58, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
Heh I actually call Russia the Soviet Union always. In fact I think Putin is trying to bring that nation back to its USSR routes. Soviet Union = Russia. Regardless, Russia/Soviet Union didnt interfere on anything. its just something that the democraps came up with to try and undermine him.--Zgrillo2004 (talk) 17:51, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Senate intel[edit]

Senate backs up assement. Needs adding and to go into lead. https://www.politico.com/story/2018/07/03/senate-intelligence-russia-election-meddling-692616 Casprings (talk) 00:19, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
