Don't miss the part about Sean Spicer hiding in the hedges on the Whitehouse lawn in order to conduct a secret press conference with Fox in the dark.

Rumor has it that there are three grand juries on the Trump/Russia affair, two in eastern VA and one in southern NY. I think Trump can't fire these guys - they are state employees.
Adam Schiff's (Representing California's 28th Congressional District and Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee) twitter acct.:
Laurence Tribe's (professor of constitutional law at Harvard) twitter acct.:
He is indeed in trouble if they want him and I'm sure his firing of the US Attorney pissed off a very powerful group of prosecutors.
Judas, Tax Cuts and the Great Betrayal
Republicons will do anything for tax cuts. They only care about their wealthy donors.
This rings so true. Krugman makes the case.
Comey’s Firing Is Worse Than the Saturday Night Massacre
At least during Watergate officials inside the administration refused to collude with Nixon’s orders.
Trump is threatening to stop press briefings which would mean Spicer doesn't have to hide in the bushes anymore.
Now (allegedly) Trump gave information to Russia. While he has the RIGHT to do so (along with the right to dance naked on the White House lawn). Do you think the information sources might be in danger? Oh, and do you think Russia didn't know the source (Israel)? Do you think Israel is going to want to really give the US any more information.
Today Trump gave a speech to the newest Coast Guard Officers (of which he is cutting the budget) in which he just HAD to bring himself into it. Yes, seems that, according to Trump, "No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly." Uhhhh, he might want to read about what was said about his hero Andrew Jackson. Also read about what was said about Abraham Lincoln, Obama, FDR, Churchill, Queen Elizabeth I, etc. I doubt the man has read a book in over 50 years.
In my opinion -and it's free- the man is the classic definition of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Everything HAS to be about him. He is the best, the most put opinion, the greatest, whatever. No ONE is going to be 100% on anything.
Alice Roosevelt Longworth said of Theodore Roosevelt (26th president), "My father always wanted to be the corpse at every funeral, the bride at every wedding and the baby at every christening." Trump makes TR look self-effacing.
Seems like unfortunately from Trump the Russian probe isn't going away. Former FBI Director Mueller is to lead Trump.
What is scary, if Trump goes, we get Pence. After what he did to Indiana...
Of course health care is a privilege, along with clean water, a source of electricity, roads, education....basically all the 'socialistic' programs. Guess what, disease/sickness does not respect wealth.
In light of everything, I've come to believe Comey is just as suspect as Trump. I don't think Comey is any bargain and should be gone. Even though his comments may very well have cost Hillary the election, it wasn't right what he did, the timing was not proper.
However, if Trump did request the oath of loyalty, he's gone too far. It is precisely what Hitler began requesting from his military. I don't think it's accurate though.
This is confirmed, not alleged. He gave classified info to the Russians. The problem is, it was not his to give. Another country gave only the US the info. They are steaming mad! What will happen is no country is going to trust Trump with sensitive intel. Trump is a danger to our country and he may have compromised the people who got the intel and thereby put their lives in danger.
What classified information did he give to the Russians, and from whom did it come?
I agree with you by the way, depending on the type of information, it very well could compromise operations some people spend their entire career working on, it could get people killed also. Forget about other countries not trusting us, the real danger is that his spec op teams will not trust HIM.
Hundreds of billions of dollars are spent in training, the planning of operations and then the operations themselves. No one will ever send the information up the chain if he's really done this depending on the type of breach.
I tend to be naive about people. However Trump has made so many people sign loyalty oaths and non disclosures I would not be surprised. Plus Trump cannot make up his mind on why he fired Comey. First it was how Comey handled the Hillary situation, then it was Russia. I am tired of alternate facts. In my book 'alternate facts' are lies.
I am an independent and find enough to dislike about each party. So in my book Comey probably was doing his job. Unfortunately with Hillary (bad timing) he got the democrats angry. Then with Trump/Russia he got the republicans angry(or at least Trump). Comey could not win.
Now we have Israel knowing they cannot trust Trump with intelligence. How many other allies are also going to do the same?
