HOLY CRAP BATMAN! THE GOVERNMENT IS LEAKING LIKE A SEIVE!

YOU'RE RIGHT ROBIN AND THERE IS A WHOLE LOT OF TROUBLE IN GOTHAM!




In another bombshell revelation, The Washington Post - via anonymous sources - has disclosed that your President Trump called the Director of National Intelligence, Daniel Coats and National Security Agency director, Michael Rogers, just after then-current FBI Director, James Comey testified before the House Intelligence Committee on March 20 that yes, indeedy, the FBI was investigating "the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia's efforts.  (ASIDE:  What the hell has jump-started the Washington Post in morphing into a first rate investigative journalism outlet?)

Of course, the Trump White House pooh-poohed this report by saying that Tump just applying his spectacular public relations acumen to bring some real world "reality" to the whole Russiagate scandal.   According to White House spokesperson, Spinner Spencer, the big problem is the leakers and not the information leaked or the President.  This is the constant theme from Republican House and Senate members too, as well as the alt.right world and Sean Hannity, which under normal circumstances, you know, prior to January 20, 2017, might just cause these Trump apologists a bit of caution when opening their mouths in public.  Or maybe not, since all their lame-ass excuses and dodges and deflections just reinforce our conviction that yes, indeed, Trump and his minions do have something to hide.  As Trump so famously proclaimed during the campaign:


But now we have a whole bunch of shit - and the pile grows daily -  that at the very least questions Trump's judgement: attempting to use his position to suppress an official investigation, abruptly firing the head of the FBI, passing classified intelligence on to the Russians, to name just a few.  But all the Congresspersons, the alt.right fake media, and the Trump supporters all babble and squeak about

"THE LEAKERS WHO HAVE COMMITTED FELONIES BY RELEASING CONFIDENTIAL INFO TO THE PRESS!"

Yeah, well what's at stake here is the possible cooperation of Trump's campaign folks in rigging a U.S. election, firing the guy who's heading up the investigation "because he was mean to Hillary" just to name a couple of the more egregious actions of the Trump Administration.  And these folks are concerned about the leakers in the face of Americans (so-called) allegedly cooperating with a foreign government who is not friendly to the United States?  Yeah. Right.  Oh, and not to make a YUGE point of it, a news report last night revealed that many of the offensive leaks are coming from the
White House itself - from BOTH career White House staff and Trump appointed White House staff.

BUT IT'S THE LEAKS!!!

This folks, is unprecedented.

So these latest revelations mark the third time (that we know about) where Trump has attempted to squash the investigation over Russia's interference in the 2016 Presidential Election (Why would any President object to this?)
But forget about Trump's latest ill-considered requests.  We know he did this with Comey too.  It wasn't only Trump, however, but take a look at this from the Post's piece:  
In addition to the requests to Coats and Rogers, senior White House officials sounded out top intelligence officials about the possibility of intervening directly with Comey to encourage the FBI to drop its probe of Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, according to people familiar with the matter. The officials said the White House appeared uncertain about its power to influence the FBI. 
“Can we ask him to shut down the investigation? Are you able to assist in this matter?” one official said of the line of questioning from the White House.
What The Fuck?  What's wrong with these people?  They don't know that it was when Richard Nixon, during the Watergate investigation, asked that the FBI stop that investigation that eventually brought him down?  But here's the kicker: Clever man and adroit politician that Nixon was, he didn't ask the Director of the FBI or some Assistant Director, he asked one of his own guys to make the request to them to shut down the Watergate investigation thus leaving himself what he thought was deniability.  He was dead wrong on that count.  Trump?  Good God, does he have no idea what the rules of being President are?  Does he think he's still a CEO with unlimited reach and power to execute exactly whatever the hell action enters his brain on any given day?  All of this is just breathtakingly astounding!

This folks is obstruction of justice pure and simple.  Again, maybe not in a criminal case but most definitely in impeachment proceedings. 

AND IN OTHER NOT SO EARTH SHAKING BUT OTHERWISE KIND OF INTERESTING IF NOT FUNNY NEWS:

Turkey's Government Condemns U.S. Action at Protest 

If you read a recent post of mine, http://unitedliberals.blogspot.com/2017/05/this-hasnt-received-breaking-news.html, you might chuckle (as I certainly did) over Turkey's protest of the violence that D.C. police used against the folks who were attacking peaceful protesters outside the Turkish residence, until Erdogan's  security goons basically attacked them and beat few of them bloody.  The Turkish government is protesting the "treatment" of Erdogan's security force - two were briefly detained - and the "manhandling" by the DC cops (don't know if they were DC Metro cops or one of the other 15 different cop organizations  we have stationed here in D.C.)  of the poor, defenseless security goons.  The reason given for the attack?  One of the Kurdish protesters threw a bottle of water, Desani or Polar presumably, at one of the Presidential guards.  

Yeah, well back in Turkey protesters get jailed routinely but not here in the United States.  It's a part of our Constitution.  But I guess President Erdogan isn't aware of this. 


Have A Good and Exciting Trump Filled Day!
