Yet another instance of spying on your POTUS. He told us two years ago this was happening, and he has been proven right.

Made "a promise" to a "foreign leader", oh yeah, that's specific. This will turn out to be nothing. It's not even fake news, it's quasi news, kind of like the "orange alerts" and stuff like that. And of course it's Fox news. If you believe a single word spoken on that channel, you deserve what you get.

As he was leaning toward Medvedev in Seoul, Obama was overheard asking for time — “particularly with missile defense” — until he is in a better position politically to resolve such issues.

“I understand your message about space,” replied Medvedev, who will hand over the presidency to Putin in May.

“This is my last election … After my election I have more flexibility,” Obama said, expressing confidence that he would win a second term.

“I will transmit this information to Vladimir,” said Medvedev, Putin’s protégé and long considered number two in Moscow’s power structure.


I remember this little hot microphone back and forth very well. Just imagine the blow back this would have caused if Trump had said it. Conspiring with the Russians!

I read the article and had to stop reading when pencil neck schifty's face appeared in it as I scrolled down.

100% sure if he's involved or has an opinion on it then it's little more than TDS induced fake news.

Phil Mudd: I am about ready to blow a gasket

Cuomo Prime Time
CNN analyst Phil Mudd responds following a report from The Washington Post revealing President Donald Trump's communications with a foreign leader sparked the whistleblower complaint that has led the acting director of national intelligence to agree to testify amid a showdown with Congress.

What elevates this to a serious concern is that the (PDJT-appointed) IC's own Inspector General received the complaint, AGREED it was a matter of 'urgent concern,' is then required by very explicit black letter law to brief the Intelligence Committees, but is being blocked by the Acting Director of National Intelligence on advice from the DOJ and/or WH Counsel Office (who have no ability under law to interfere, and no exceptions to the law to invoke).

The Intelligence Committee only knows of this because the IC Inspector General told them, finding the ADNI weighing in to block it an abuse of law.

I guess we have a brand new form of government now, where laws are optional to follow, even those concerning national security matters, at least according to the people who trust such violations of law to this particular president and his personal criminal defense attorneys masquerading as the Attorney General or WH Counsel.

I don't see how anyone who supports the Constitution, let alone those who have sworn an oath to preserve and defend the Constitution, can go along with this law breaking. And in particular, to support the elevation of the president to the level of a king, who can disallow Congressional oversight of him and his administration at his sole whim, even to the point of disobeying lawful subpoenas. But I have never joined any cult of personality. It appears to be a helluva drug that addles the senses and clouds minds.

Just out of curiosity, what is your prediction:
1. This becomes a major scandal leading to possible impeachment?
2. This turns out to be fairly innocent and forgotten in less than 2 weeks?

I REALLY dislike DT. I think he's an ignoramus blowhard with all the charm of a 4chan troll. That being said, even I think this constant manufacturing of silly non-news items has gone way too far.

3. It is yet another shoot first, ask questions/get the story right later, political assassination attempt by the LEFT. Nadler will urge yet another clown show, and call Biden to testify, as to what took place when he was in Verhampshire.

It is not either silly or non-news that the IC IG (appointed by PDJT himself) found the filing was of 'urgent concern' and informed the Intelligence Committee that the law requiring his briefing of it to the Intel Committee within seven days time of making his decision is being blocked.

Frankly, however, there is very little effective leverage on this administration when the Attorney General and the WH Counsel believe the president is like a king in our system (???? which of course he is not), and cannot be checked and balanced in any way by the Congress, including by oversight.

The law provides that the whistleblower may brief the Intelligence Committees directly if his report has been blocked, after simply informing the relevant department authority (or the IG office) in writing.

I expect that will occur if this continues to be an impasse, or he (she?) may instead leak to the press (although that would incur potential legal penalties).

In any case, if it is of 'urgent concern,' that means there is no time to proceed through the courts, if that is even possible in such a case as this. That would probably take a year.

Meanwhile, the ignorant backers of this president will LOL!-LULZ! in response, because they have essentially become infected with brain-eating parasites.

There was a time that Cons had to watch the previous king do the same thing (i.e. Eric Holder, Louis Lerner, etc.). I'm sure you'll come up with some technical reasons that it wasn't the same, but it was. Sucks doesn't it?
