    Sharing classified information with the Russians? How damn incompetent do you have to be? It is clearly 25th Amendment time. Trump has to go.

    It will be a hell of a long time before anyone shares top secret information with this country after this idiotic move.

    Trump just admitted in a tweet that he did share classified information. In fact, he said it was his "absolute right" to do so. I don't disagree that he legally has the right to share any classified information as the president. However, the repercussions of his behavior make this country less safe, less friendly to our allies, and endangers intelligence assets. Didn't McMasters just come out less than 12 hours ago and say that the WaPo's story was false, it didn't happen?

    Now will you condemn his incompetence or continue to support an idiot-in-chief? Geesh! You sure elect some doozies on your side of the aisle.

    The Terrible Cost of Trump's Disclosures
    The consequences of the president’s reported divulgence of top-secret codeword information to the Russians are only beginning.

    If The Washington Post is right, President Trump divulged highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador at a jovial meeting in the Oval Office. Here is why this is appalling, beyond even this president’s usual standard.

    Top secret codeword information is no joke

    There are multiple flavors of intelligence classification, from “Confidential” (which is often in the public record already, just not acknowledged), to “Secret” (usually, though not always available if you know where to look—or are willing to wait a few days), to “Top Secret” which is beginning to be serious. The codewords, which security officials began using in World War II to protect signal intercepts (e.g. ULTRA), tell you whence the information was derived—so Top Secret/codeword material really has to be protected. Any of us who have had those kinds of clearances have gone through repeated trainings about how to safeguard such material (cover sheets, multiple envelopes, proper paragraph marking, etc.). And if you hope to keep your job and stay out of jail, you take it seriously. You do not have access to any and all compartments if you have a top-secret clearance. This, apparently, is some of the information that Trump blew.

    The repeated spectacular breaks into the American security system by the Russians, among others, coupled with the ubiquity of personal information in the smartphone age, has caused some Americans to assume that secrets do not exist. They most certainly do. If someone finds out how you have gathered information, that artfully planted bug may go dead. Or a human agent may go dead. In the normal course of events, Donald Trump would never have been given a high-level security clearance because of his psychological profile and personal record, including his susceptibility to blackmail. But it will be even worse if his behavior convinces others, including those who work for him, that classification is meaningless.

    Top-secret codeword information derived from an ally is even more sensitive.

    To a remarkable degree, the United States relies on liaison relationships with other powers with whom it shares information. If Trump has indeed compromised a source of information, it is not merely a betrayal of an ally’s trust: It is an act that will jeopardize a whole range of relationships. After all, the Director of Central Intelligence cannot very well say, “Don’t worry, we won’t share that with the president.” So now everybody—even our closest allies like the United Kingdom—would be well-advised to be careful with what they share with us. That is a potential intelligence debacle for us, but the danger goes beyond that. If any foreign government harbored lingering illusions about the administration’s ability to protect any information, including sensitive but non-intelligence matters like future foreign-policy initiatives or military deployments, they no longer do. They will be even more apprehensive about sharing sensitive information of any kind because…

    He gave it to the Russians. In the Oval Office. In a fit of braggadocio.


    Russia is antagonistic to the United States, although Trump has repeatedly indicated his desire to be chummy with the Russians—after all, as he notoriously said during the presidential campaign, we are both killers, and so on the same moral plane. He apparently divulged the information to show off, which not only shows a lack of self-discipline: It shows, yet again, how easy this man is to play, particularly by veteran manipulators like his two experienced, talented, and thuggish guests. The crisis is made worse by virtue of Trump having just fired the FBI director, apparently for having pushed that Russia investigation too far.

    Quite apart from making himself and the country a laughingstock around the world, the president has now practically begged Vladimir Putin to toy with him, tantalize him, tease him, flatter him, manipulate him. He has shown the Russians (and others, who are watching just as closely) just how easy that is to do, and he has shown the rest of us that his vanity and impulsiveness have not been tempered by the highest responsibilities.

    The corruption has begun.

    In the wake of the Post story, the White House—hoping, presumably, to avoid another Comey-firing publicity debacle—trotted out three reasonably sane, responsible, experienced adults to vouch for the President’s story. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell, and National Security Adviser Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster made public statements calling the story false, giving different variants of this argument: The President did not disclose sources and methods for intelligence gathering, or future military operations.

    Well, of course not. That is not what the Post said in its story: It said that he divulged intelligence. And since it seems likely that the Russians captured all of the conversation—they were allowed to bring their electronics into the room, including the only video cameras, the American press having been excluded—they undoubtedly got all of it. And you bet that their analysts are even now chuckling as they figure out what the sources were.

    But that is not the half of it. Tillerson casually said of Trump in an interview on Meet the Press on Sunday “I have to earn his confidence every day.” One does not earn Donald Trump’s confidence by calmly conveying to him some unpleasant but essential truths. Rather, one earns his confidence by truckling to him, and by lying to everyone else. Now, what Tillerson, Powell, and McMaster said are not quite lies, but they are the kind of parsed half truths that are as bad, and in some cases worse. This is how one’s reputation for veracity is infected by the virulent moral bacteria that cover Donald Trump. Friends will watch, pained and incredulous, as they realize that one simply cannot assume that anything these senior subordinates of the president say is the truth. And having stretched, manipulated, or artfully misrepresented the truth once, these officials will do it again and again. They will be particularly surprised when they learn that most people assume that as trusted subordinates of the president, they lie not as colorfully as he does, but just as routinely. Perhaps the worst will be the moment when these high officials can no longer recognize their own characters for what they once were.

    One can be certain that (metaphorically speaking) at this very moment ice picks are sliding into unsuspecting kidneys in the White House. No doubt the president is raging at the cowed subordinates who have to cover yet again for his folly and grandiosity; no doubt that some subordinates see this as an opportunity to settle scores, undermine rivals, and curry favor. It is probably a fascinating if odious spectacle.

    What will be of lasting importance, and the only possibly redemptive part of this wretched tale, is if it motivates some Republican legislators to take a stand against their own party and for the law and the Constitution. If Trump nominates any kind of Republican political figure, no matter what their previous record, as FBI director, they must oppose it. They should denounce his misconduct for what it is. And all of us should begin contemplating the conditions under which—not now, maybe not even a year from now—the constitutional remedies for dealing with a president utterly incapable of fulfilling his duties with elementary probity and competence will have to be implemented.

    Fake garbage to distract from Seth Rich. Nothing illegal, just lefty fake indignation as usual.
    Now, Seth Rich is the DNC leaker, killed by the Clinton Crime Family, just blows the lid off the fake Russia crap.

    This has turned out to be just another "wannabe" story from the far-left loonies. It's becoming tiresome listening to their bleating.

    Israeli intelligence 'boiling mad' over Trump disclosure: report
    Source: Washington Post

    Israeli intelligence officers are "boiling mad and demanding answers" after President Trump reportedly shared classified information from Israel with Russia, according to a new report.

    Two Israeli intelligence officers confirmed to BuzzFeed Tuesday that Israel had shared specific intelligence with the U.S. about Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) plots to smuggle explosive laptops onto planes.

    "We have an arrangement with America which is unique to the world of intelligence sharing," one intelligence officer told BuzzFeed. "We do not have this relationship with any other country."

    "To know that this intelligence is shared with others, without our prior knowledge? That is, for us, our worst fears confirmed," the officer added.

    Undeniable cracks in Republican solidarity with Il Douche: GOP rep calls for special prosecutor on Russia

    Rep. Steve Knight (R-Calif.) on Tuesday called for a special prosecutor to take over the FBI's investigation into Russian election interference, joining a growing chorus demanding action on the probe.

    Knight said in a statement that "conflicting information" from the various Russia investigations had obscured Americans' ability to determine the truth. The FBI and House and Senate Intelligence committees are all investigating Russian election meddling and ties between President Trump's campaign and the Kremlin.

    “It is time for an investigation of Russia’s intervention in the U.S. Election. There is too much at stake at home and abroad to not take this step," he said.

    "There is so much conflicting information from many sources; Americans deserve the opportunity to learn the truth. As stated before, I continue to support any efforts done by the House Intelligence Committee and join many of my colleagues in supporting the assignment of a special prosecutor to take over the ongoing FBI investigation."

    Last week, Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), tweeted that he was "reviewing legislation to establish an independent commission on Russia.” On Friday, he was joined by Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.), who said that a special prosecutor to investigate Trump's ties to Russia was "on the table."

    Knight won reelection in California’s 25th District with 53 percent support in November, but Democrat Hillary Clinton defeated Trump in the district, 50 to 44 percent.
