Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

Now that Republican senators have telegraphed to Sessions that he's going to be fired after the mid-term elections, I wonder what, if anything, Sessions is going to do as a response. Is he simply going to carry out his agenda until he's fired? will he attempt to get Trump to reconsider? will he leave behind a "poison pill" to retaliate? Will he bounce over to Mueller's office and cooperate?

Stay-tuned to the mid-season cliffhanger of "The Apprentice: Oval Office Edition"!

One sad thing about this situation is that Trump was too dumb to realize that if he had immediately requested Sessions' resignation the moment he recused himself, he wouldn't have received any push back. Sessions had only been AG for a few weeks after he was sworn in.

He keeps doing shit like this.

"Investigate [thing I don't like]!"
"OK we're done. The results were the exact opposite of what you wanted to hear."
"Bury it."

I know. He's like the secret conservative Snopes, using the resources of the government to attempt to debunk things which are actually true and then never letting anyone know the results.

"Catch and Kill" gubmint style. I think that's his plan for the Mueller investigation.

There's no reason to hide it behind a cough. Every time a Republican complains about confirmation of judges, I reply MERRICK. FUCKING. GARLAND.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

Developing story. Potentially big. Did the Trump admin intentionally release a Democratic candidate's security application to a conservative organization? Has it done this to others?

D.C. lawyers are saying that these applications are NOT subject to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Releasing this security application was either a huge mistake or a crime.


C.I.A. Officer-Turned-Candidate Says PAC Obtained Her Security Application at NYTimes.com

A former C.I.A. officer running for Congress accused a super PAC aligned with Speaker Paul D. Ryan on Tuesday of improperly obtaining her entire federal security clearance application — a highly sensitive document containing extensive personal information — and then using it for political purposes.

So when Trump says that anonymous sources are fake, he's referring to his own personal actions.

I posted this a page or two ago - no one cared, which means no one will do anything about it, unless, as I pointed out, Dems take congress, and even then, they have a long fucking list of shit to get through.
