This better not be a nothing burger.
Is it going to be as ground breaking as the Pentagon Papers?
How about Chelsea Manning's' Wikileaks dump?
First, we get the news that McCabe has stepped down. Yep, he was probably pressured by Trump, McCabe is "stepping aside now."
Remember, McCabe has testified in front of the House Intel, Oversight and Justice committees, about Trump's interactions with Comey, also the Clinton emails.
So Trump's next plan was to attack McCabe's wife, and to get her husband to do it, pretty sick and devious, right?
Trump had a problem with McCabes wife getting DNC funds for her election bid, but was any of that illegal?
Did she do any thing wrong other than run for office and lose?
|Really? He's got time for this?|
Childish and petty, but I have met plenty like Trump.
When the President of the United States asks the Deputy Director of the FBI to "ask his wife how it feels to be a loser"
you have to wonder if he's a halfwit schoolyard bully or is he just demented?
Why would a man as important as the President even care?
This says a lot about his character. I just bet there's a lot of people who voted for Trump and think that one-up mentality is perfectly ok.
This is character assassination, it reeks of a narcissist.
If he'll do that to a subordinate about his wife. What else will he do? Maybe harass him on twitter?
|Talk about a hostile work environment!|
I hope I get to see what it's all about.
I think it's all a big damn distraction.
I have a few suspicions;
He's got McCabe out.
That doesn't mean McCabe can't testify against him in future hearings. So there's that.
I know damn well Trump wants to fire Mueller,
First he's probably going to fire or get rid of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, maybe with this Nunes memo.
Rod Rosenstein was the one who decided to have Carter Page, a foreign policy advisor to Trump, monitored through the FISA application he approved.
According to The Atlantic, Nunes himself was under investigation by the Ethics Committee last year, about breaking rules of public disclosure.
This was about "American Intelligence monitoring American officials, that may have picked up communications of Trump's transition team members."
Is this the FISA memo, or the Nunes memo?. Is this how long this has been going on, since last April?
The committee was never able to see any of the classified information, but hey, Nunes, that's ok. They cleared Nunes of anything unethical, even though they couldn't fully investigate everything or anything.
Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd says releasing the memo is "reckless" without a review, but since now it's been reviewed it's A-ok. I guess.
Trump thinks it's going to "shed light" and bring the investigation to a conclusion.
This, I have to see.
Could this be the same sort of "reckless" handling of classified information, Trump has been going on about Crooked Hillary doing?
If he has the power in one memo, to stop this Russia investigation,
I mean, why wait so long?
Glen Greenwald says there are four easy ways this memo could be released. #1 is that Trump can declassify anything he wants. #2 the House Intel Committee could declassify it. So, isn't it interesting that now they've kicked the can onto Trumps desk?
He has five days.
So let's see how much light good old Donny Two Scoops can shed, so we can start winning-bigly.
Because it's not "IF "the government has been abusing it's surveillance powers, they've been doing it for a long time.
I doubt any of that is going to stop too soon.
Memo or no memo.
