CIA In The US Eh?
[Comments enabled]

The CIA issue is not in fact much about the nomination of a new director.  I know you think it is because the media and John McCain want you to think it is -- but it isn't.

It's really about what the CIA and FBI apparently did prior to the 2016 election.  It appears that the DOJ and FBI had a mole inside the Trump campaign.  That's nuclear waste material standing alone, but it gets much worse.

The mole appears to have been an Australian CIA spy.

That's black-letter illegal on a whole host of levels, not the least of which is that the CIA is prohibited by law from operating in the United States.

Why does John McCain care, besides hating Trump?  Because McCain was involved in this up to his ****ing neck with the so-called "dossier", he has admitted in public to being the source of its referral, and were he not about to take a six foot eternal nap he is quite-possibly personally exposed on a felony criminal level in regard to this whole thing.

So yeah, he's real interested in this.

The DOJ has apparently intentionally failed to disclose the documents on this to Nunes and Gowdy and in fact lied under oath because they claimed to have produced all the responsive documents to a Congress.  All evidence now points to that being a bald lie.

Jeff Sessions almost certainly knows they lied, and knows what is in those documents.  He too has intentionally concealed this as well if, in fact, he has any knowledge of it -- and I bet he does.

As for Trump, well, what makes you think he's going to force this out into the open?  There is zero evidence that he intends to do any such thing -- he has not ordered Jeff Sessions, who is the head of the DOJ, to turn over the ****ing documents to Congress and as Sessions' boss that is within his power to do.

So..... about your so-called "swamp-drainer"...... he looks like a damned 12 foot gator to me, and in addition he looks like he wants to not only dwell in said swamp he wants to abuse it for his own ends just as did Obama, Holder and Lynch.

Your MAGA hats have mutated into saying something slightly different.....

Only the little people pay taxes - Leona Helmsley

Only the little people need obey the law - Me

Taxation and corruption became so bad at the end of the Roman era that the rank and file welcomed the Barbarians into their lands. Is there anyone worth unlocking the gates for?

P.S. FWIW, going through the "I don't post very often" email dance left me logging into an HTTP link. The page warned me about this and I reloaded my standard bookmark to get an HTTPS login.

The actual login response is always sent via HTTPS, even if you got there via http. (Go ahead and look at the POST URL in what the system sent back -- it's not dumb enough to send an unencrypted password ;-))

Winding it down.

I dont think Trump figures he can get by with what others get by with. I cant figure out why he doesnt release all info himself though. Maybe he figures that is his GOOJF card. Who knows?

I need another shot of Woodford Reserve double oak.

Maybe I should lay in a case of that. One day, I will not be able to get it.

I'm hoping the IG report that is expected to come out in a few weeks will expose the truth on this mess.
