Some food for thought in this article.....VAP can stand fast....as what it has to say very much challenges his World View (heck....commonsense and reality each do that to him).

Many Years ago we had the Left all in an up roar when they thought Nixon was using the IRS and other Federal Agencies to go after people on his "Enemies List". Under Clinton, the White House had the FBI send over Background Investigation Files on several hundred people and that caused a major flap. The Obama Administration certainly used the politics of personal destruction in its operations.

What makes this different is that it is an inside job going on that could very well be designed to take down a legally elected government or at least disrupt it and undermine its ability to pursue its Agenda of Reform and Change to the way our Government does business.

The accusation that the Mafia did in JFK for the loss of Cuba and its lucrative deals with Batista still come to the surface even yet today.

The Federal Government has been very much preaching about the "Insider Threat" for well over a Decade....perhaps there is a reason they fear such a thing....as they are now doing it themselves by leaking this Classified Data.

Why illegimate? They didn't win the election under the Constitutional rules?
Fully partisan Congressional investigations of the Democratic candidate costing millions of dollars leading to nowhere? A candidate wrongly accused by the Director of the FBI at the last hour after having cleared the very same in a most bizarre press conference unprecedented in the history of the FBI. Freely leaked data by Russian actors of Democratic officials, while any and all captured data from Republicans were held back. A Trump campaign chock full of lies, so many lies and spewed with such regularity, in fact, that the enormity of which has never been seen in the history of this Union of States.

Nowhere in the constitution does it mention the words legitimate and foreign power's influence over election so your argument fails. It does however make mention of high crimes and misdemeanors:

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."
s
Inarguably, this could very well be in Trump's future. Flynn may be the mere tip of the berg headed for the orange luxury (garbage bin) liner, aka the SS Team TrumPus.

Hatred Fitlit? Hardly. Didn't your mother ever tell you to not hate the sinner, just the sin, dear boy?

Disdain and disgust and might be more fitting. Add a dollop of pity on top if you really want to know how I regard the bozos and racists that Russia/FBI/Partisan Congressional Fishing Expeditions and uneducated Americans managed to put into power.

Calling the farcical tin-pot idiocy that the Trump administration has proven the American public to be so far a government is a bit of a stretch, SASless. Meanwhile, you just keep on spouting alternative facts, and 'look what the other guy did' while your guy rapes and pillages a country where half were hoodwinked into believing these bozos are going to make "America Great Again".

Oh dear.
More fake news Donald?
Not a good idea having the NSA, CIA and FBI offside my friend.
Now you'll probably try and tell us that the real story is how all this found it's way into the NYT?

What a nice man.....although I am sure to some on here, he's just, in the American vernacular " a regular guy".....as well as being the inevitable God fearin, all American patriot....

I am sure, however, his contribution to the new Administration ( less the term, regime, upsets those of delicate sensibilities on here who take umbrage at any comment which doesn't conform with their ideology ) will prove to be invaluable....

No worries, West Coast. I am truly enjoying witnessing the racist rats and moronic forked-tongue minions scramble about as their ship of fools, the SS TrumPus Vulgaris heads for the bottom of the cesspool.

My real worry is for the most vulnerable among us that will likely bear the brunt of the suffering these fools in orifice have placed upon them.

Real worry #2: If they continue on their ill-advised course, I predict a major terrorist attack on the US homeland before year's end - thanks to the administration's own ignorance, hate-mongering, xenophobic rants and racist rhetoric combined with an obvious disregard for the peace and safety of the world at large.

#3: The environment - will take a serious hit. Our rivers and the very air we breathe are now under serious threat thanks to your guy's picks for cabinet secretaries and his bent on supporting the disreputable and destructive forces represented by King Coal, Big Oil, and Big Polluters, over the lovely blue ball that gives us life, Mother Earth.

Re the inaugural crowd photo: the administration can soon fix that. Look at the name of the photographer: Abbas Shirmohammadi. He can be "fixed" during the next attempt at an anti-Muslim visa resrtictions/"chuck 'em out" laws.

VAP

"Hatred Fitlit? Hardly. Didn't your mother ever tell you to not hate the sinner, just the sin, dear boy?"

More like obsessive, destructive fixation.
To be consumed by so much angst, and display it in public is not healthy.

Did your Mother never tell you to eat your peas, indigestion left untreated leads to irritable bowel syndrome.

Oh dear me....VAP is probably perched on the Porcelain Throne writhing in agony because of his chronic Trump Tummy and banging away at the keys of his iPad!

It could be a very long eight Years for him....perhaps we might take the long view of this sad situation of his....and buy Shares in a Paper Company that makes Bog Rolls!

Odd how Trump is affecting the economy isn't it?

Chances of Trump lasting 8 years are quite a bit smaller, than the chances he won't even last a year, let alone the first term. Don't take my word for it, it's the bookies running the odds.

What does puzzle me to no end, is how any person of intelligence could root for a double-stint of a Bannon administration. I know partisanship runs deep in US politics, probably to the detriment of any rational thinking (on both sides, mind), but, seriously?

Yes - they have a great track record..

Spokesman for Paddy Power Féilim Mac An Iomaire told the Irish Sun: “We’re in the business of making predictions and decided to put our neck on the line by paying out early on Hillary Clinton, but boy did we get it wrong.

“We’ve been well and truly thumped by Trump with his victory leaving us with the biggest political payout in the company’s history and some very, very expensive egg on our faces.”

Surely even the dimmer ends of the FBI know that iPads don't have keys?

Or is this just more "alternative facts"...

Hi

My IPad has keys. It is wrapped in a very unobtrusive keyboard/case.

I can't stand using ohms to write.

vapilot,

Considering all that FBI nonsense wouldn't have occurred, IF Slick Willie hadn't had the "chance" meeting with the AG, if the administration had appointed a special prosecutor rather than tried to investigate Hils, it's bit of an "own goal".

He just can't stop it! Now he is accusing the FBI & NSA of "giving out information illegally". If I was him, I wouldn't be too quick to alienate the intelligence community, particularly after having slogans such as "drain the swamp", referring to the Washington establishment. If one of his advisors could just fit him with a pair of boxing gloves, it my save him from any more Twitter gaffes. (Not to mention womens' private prts!)

Kelvin D,

Leaking is illegal, there's that. JFK and RFK found out why you don't cross the CIA's deep state.
