I'm sharing this place mark with you because I can. It's not illegal because I'm the president.

Thanks for the new thread. It's been a whirlwind could of days. I find myself wondering about what Obama is going to say about all this in his memoirs, post Trump. I think he had a fairly good idea of what Trump's character was like, it'll be interesting to know how much of this shit storm he anticipated smile

From the Guardian

“As for the Israeli view on this, the Israelis can’t avoid seeing a delicious irony. US intelligence agencies, for decades, have suspected that Israel sometimes passes information to Russia – as part of trading intelligence – and that was the CIA’s reason to be reluctant in sharing everything with the Israelis. Now, America’s allies seem concerned that Trump himself might be passing sensitive intel to the Russians.”

Trump's senior advisers don't feel comfortable leaving him alone with foreign leaders. This drives him nuts. He calls McMaster "a pain" pic.twitter.com/gTnwGMhZqJ

"What Russian hackers? Trump gives American secrets to Russia by himself," sneers the main Russian news cast. t.co/eh61fIGmqb?amp=1

<I can't read Russian so don't know if the tone is indeed sneery>

Speaking of Fox

www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017/05/16/ralph-peters-blind-loyalty-is-un-american.html

Now Republicans, who long claimed to be the Constitution’s defenders and champions of national security, shrug off Russian penetration of our political system and justify the reckless use (following Obama’s precedent) of executive orders by their president—whose behavior would excite outrage if the fingers on the keypad belonged to a Democrat.

And a flatulent Congress cringes and points at the other guy

It wasn't Orlantina who linked to this thread; it was MN Deep State to smear her.

Hiding in bushes, Spicer style. You ain't seen me, right.

How long before Trump shouts

"Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in for me!"
