Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

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

Top secret codeword information is no joke

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

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

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.

'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.'

When Faux Nooze covers a story negative towards a repbulitard, you know it's bad.

Good job electing a know nothing moron who is unfit for office republicraps.

You own him. He's all yours.

Because the GOP manufactured an outrage over emails that you fell for.

The GOP don't give a ---- about the damage he is doing just so long as they get their deregulation, tax cuts and ---- the poor agenda.

This type of thing is one of the reasons why I felt he was unfit for office. Unfortunately, the other major party candidate was also unfit but for different reasons. I decided I wasn't going to be a Johnson so I voted for Gary Johnson, who was also a very flawed candidate, but nothing like Trump, or Clinton, for that matter.

She never did anything anywhere close to what Trump did with the Russians, it makes you look desperate to even bring her name into the discussion.

He is desperate, Danni.
In fact, my guess is the poor guy's world is being turned upside-down.
How disappointing!
Sad!
