Apparently the Israelis are the source of this information and they are livid.
 

 

 

You mean they are stupid enough to acknowledge it! :blink:

 

If there was a time to deny something, it's now.

That has to be the most goofy reply ever and a distraction. Even CNN stated the source of the intel was not revealed.

This was one of the related subjects discussed.




(Maybe intel sharing should be stopped, let ISIS strike, it will give the leftist a good night sleep.)

Apparently the Israelis are the source of this information and they are livid.

When the Press questioned the Prime Minister of the UK, she had previously known nothing about this and was openly irritated about the mess.

At any rate, the latest issue with the Trump Administration is whether or not he has committed obstruction of justice because of the allegations that he asked Comey to drop the investigation of Flynn/Russia.

Sometimes I wonder if Trump truly knows who the Allies of the American people are.

Additionally, Trump makes his spokespersons and himself look extremely stupid when he repeatedly contradicts them.

Congress is going to directly cross-examine the former FBI Director as well as securing his notes of the meeting with Trump.

That is the next step in this process.

You're doing such a good job defending Trump on this thread that I can think of two job openings that you might be qualified for in the White House--

*One involves standing in front of the White House Press Corps. You do have to try to answer their questions, but on the bright side you do have a Podium to stand/hide behind.

*The second one involves actually going on cable television and being interviewed by Anderson Cooper and Chris Cuomo. Also trying to get an interview with Mika Brzezinski will be part of this job description.



*For each of these jobs, you explain and defend statements made by your boss--

Even though most of these statements are lies. Sometimes worse than that is that your boss May contradict himself in the middle of a media interview or a Twitter rant.



WARNING: JOB HAZARD POTENTIAL-- You have to sometimes sit in the same room with Steve Bannon during meetings. But we have it on the Best Medical Authority that you can't catch anything from just being in the same room with him.

Good Luck--

BTW-- I hope you know how to play golf because your job interview will be during a golf game on one of Donald Trump's palatial private courses.

There are multiple memos. According to an anonymous source, Comey wrote down Everything Trump told him.

Edit--There is a story on Politico titled "When Will Republicans Dump Trump?


Of course Comey covered his tracks and documented everything--cc: to his top colleagues and confidants.

I'd expect nothing less from a veteran FBI Director.

He revealed classified information and/or revealed information that came from a classified source thereby exposing that source.  

He could only have received the information in a classified document or briefing and should know not to discuss any portion of it.

He revealed them to not one, but two senior officals of a non-friendly government that is allied with a government (Syria) with whom we are fighting.  That government is allied with one of our two major "enemies." He should have known better as he is the president and the commander-in-chief.  If he doesn't, he should resign.

 

As for Gen. McMaster's comments, he knows better.  To me it sounds like CYA for him and CHA for Trump.

 

just a guess but McMaster might be taking one for Team America by covering for the buffoon.

I did read it, the conversation was about airline safety and terrorism and he want Russia to be step up their fight against ISIS and other terrorist.  Maybe I missed something?

Exactly the point.  This was not America's to share.  This endangers the source of the intel and will they share info again when Trump can't be trusted to keep his pie hole shut?
