Ah, don't sweet it....The Don has a plan. He's really just spreading fake news to the Russians while he works a deal to sell some visas to a few of the Russian Oligarch's who've felt a bit of the pain from the sanctions the Don can't convince Congress to remove.

Really, there's nothing to see here. No need to worry...

All of his supporters will. It will either be Fake News or Obama did it too.

They don't care. Trump doesn't care either. He has Republicans in control of Congress for the next two years and they don't seem to care. He could offer an office to Putin in the Whitehouse to help things along and his supporters will someone justify it.

PattyG - 5/15/2017 at 11:19 PM

McMaster's knows that the story did not say he revealed sources and methods so he can make this statement without lying. Unfortunately Trump gave the Russians enough intel to figure it out. When you get this type of intel from a secret source you are not supposed to share it with anyone, there are a few exceptions but to give this to an adversary is unbelievable.

Clearly Trump is compromised by the Russians and is a traitor to this country.


MartinD28 - 5/16/2017 at 12:01 AM

It should be evident for anyone with half a brain that Trump is in way over his head, doesn't know when to shut his mouth, hasn't a clue about national defense, has no respect for our intelligence community, helps the Russians make a fool of him, operates with reckless abandon, is a better fit to run a country like Venezuela, has no clue of what's in the Constitution, does the same things he criticized HC for re: security, lives in a world of alternative facts and alternative reality, and is an embarrassment to this country. Beyond this, I suspect he's a swell guy.

Yet his cult followers will give him a pass on anything and everything. I saw several of those on TV this weekend who drink from the "cup of Trump", and he can do no wrong. Go figure.

He keeps torpedoing the GOP agenda in this legislative session. Without the repeal of the ACA this summer and the subsequent replacement re: Trumpcare, the GOP can't fund the tax cuts they want to pass in the fall.

Standing in front of a microphone and lightly defending the President is one thing, actions once inside the halls of Congress is another.

I'm confused. When does the GOP have to fund anything??? Debt only matters when the Democrats are in power. In fact, it works out best when the GOP can run up the deficit at the last minute and then blame the Democrats for the increase in debt after they take power.

Here's a fact about the right - universal healthcare for the #1 superpower in the world leads to extreme rage, and is cause for impeachment, and blamed for destroying the country. Evidence of Russian interference in an American democratic election, and possible collusion within the White House, fake and no big deal even if it is true.

Ya. The only way they can really "repeal" the ACA is through reconciliation. And, let's remember, the last budget resolution that was just passed, there was plenty in it to keep the Dems happy.

For the things that the GOP wants to get done, they need to play compromise politics and they know it, but they have no idea (as if anyone else does) what is going to come out of the White House at any given moment.

LeglizHemp - 5/16/2017 at 02:06 PM

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dimitry Peskov, continued to insist that the story of Trump sharing classified intelligence with Russian officials was “nonsense,” even after Trump tweeted about his "absolute right" to share information with Russia.

CNN spoke to Peskov after Trump’s tweets, pointing out that the US President himself was saying he had "wanted to share with Russia."

CNN: “Do you still stand by your statement that this is 'nonsense'?”

Peskov: “We don't want to comment on nonsense fakes.”

CNN: “So you deny Trump shared classified information with (Foreign Minister Sergey) Lavrov and (Ambassador Sergey) Kislyak? Even though in Trump's own tweet he essentially admits that? In addition, given all this, wouldn't the Kremlin prefer a more predictable partner in the White House?”

Peskov: “I think we've said more than enough on this."

The office of President is pretty scripted when you think about it. The system is in place that there are so many people around you both appointed advisors and career people at the agencies that it seems all you need is some common sense and reasonable judgement to not mess things up too badly. There are plenty of exceptions like how one reacts to unforeseen events or advancing certain policy positions. But really I think that alot of people with a certain level of basic political knowledge, average awareness of foreign affairs and communication skills along with respect for all the parties that provide the office of POTUS with the tools to be the POTUS could probably sit behind the desk and not screw things up too badly. Trump has proven to not possess those traits and is a bull in a china shop and throwing the whole works out of balance. Reckless...careless...clueless...

I don't think anyone would argue that people in the media and in the Washington machine have been trying to undermine and delegitimize Trump and his administration and ofcourse I would not argue that much of that has been brought on by Trump himself either in things he has said or done or things he didn't say or do that he should've.

Now this issue of what a President tells a foreign leader or representatives of a foreign country I don't think we should know any of it. What is said and done behind closed doors should stay behind closed doors. In my view, the fact that the information is being reported now is more damaging than if it had been said and been kept in secret without anybody else knowing.

I agree to a point. In a perfect world, it would be less damaging to the US if the world did not know how incompetent and what a buffoon our president is, but we are way beyond that. The world already knows. Nobody is surprise anymore. Really, the only hope we have now is for the Republicans in congress to become embarrassed enough to do something about it and correct the mistake before more damage is done.

His recklessness can and will get people killed. There is no defense or justification of this.

When water finds it lowest level the Repubs in Congress will realize that their seats are in jeopardy. When they realize their seats, salaries, perks, and power are heading south, they may jump ship. Until then, the majority will hang in there with the idiot occupying the WH. They want him to stamp their policies. He is a danger to this country and is his own worst enemy with his stupid tweets and uncontrollable mouth. I'm surprised his head hasn't exploded from his inflated ego.

And to think that semi-intelligent individuals voted for this guy & continue to defend him.

Last night when CNN & MSNBC were all over Trump's security leak, FOX was reporting on Bin Laden's brother and the Miss USA Pageant. Glad to see FOX is carrying Trump's water and reporting on the real & non fake issues.

Israel was source for some of information shared with the Russians

From CNN's Evan Perez, Sara Murray and Elise Labott

Israeli intelligence was a source for some of the information ISIS bomb-making capabilities that Trump discussed with Russian diplomats, according to US and diplomatic officials.

The White House would not comment on Israel being the source.

ALEX JONES (HOST): Because that’s part of being a leather daddy.

STONE: Is it some secret club or something that they’re in? I mean, it defies the odds of coincidence, that every one of these guys have the same kind of look. There it is. Extraordinary. By the way [McMaster’s] smirk at the end of this kind of gives the whole thing away.

Only because we and the whole world knows it now. I can't believe that this is the only time that a US President has discussed or disclosed sensitive or classified information with representatives of a foreign country. I get it is different, it is Russia in light of the 2016 events and it is Trump. So that causes the anxiety level to rise. I personally just see no problem leaving private conversations be private and often everyone is better off without knowing about them. As it is now, the asset could be in danger and national security could be compromised because of the press report.


2112 - 5/17/2017 at 03:16 PM

I'm redacting my response because some of the things it led to (videos). Hillary wants to keep her intimacies private, she has a right to do that. I feel more empathy for Bill after some of the stuff I saw. But it was interesting that reporters saw Hillary with an ID from the Communist party, if that is someone's affiliation, they should just proclaim that, not hide it under the cloak of democracy.

Well, you don’t know what you don’t know. But yeah, I don’t think that we need to know everything that is said in government meetings beyond whatever their official statements are.

If nobody knew of the report who would know about whatever was discussed?

Some are assuming that because Russia knows this bit of information they would act in such a way that would undermine it. We don’t know that. They may or they may not. The information may have been of value to them as well for their security concerns. Did they know they were receiving something classified when it was told, or was it just a general conversation about said topic of a back-and-forth discussion? Now with it being public knowledge the whole world knows about it rather than just the people in the room at the White House.

I totally get why people are freaked out because it is Trump...and Russia.....But to me it makes not difference what President it is or would’ve been or historically was.

The issue here is that there is such a demand for leaked information, there is a big incentive for people to leak information and then of course the press for their own purposes of brand name promotion or whatever they put it out there. You could say they are doing their job as a check on our system...ok...I’m more inclined in this day and age to think it has more of a self-promotion element than otherwise. More of a ‘look what we have’ or ‘look what our team was able to acquire’ ‘we are the first to break this’ ‘we get credit for this and everyone will credit us for it’. Plus you have a President and an administration that much of the press and population in general absolutely despises who actively seek and desire as much bad news as possible.

But yeah, Obama, Bush, Clinton, whoever...what our President says to others in private meetings I feel should be in confidence. I’m just one person and that is one opinion.

Goob, your arguments fall apart on further inspection.

Those "scandals" that you are citing were basically created by the GOP and Fox News and any investigations found nothing.

If you do not remember Fox saying those things, you either did not watch Fox or yoiou ae lying.

The Nobel Peace prize was awarded by the Nobel commission in Sweden. To use that against Obama is weak.

W lied about WMD's in Iraq. What would the conservative response be if a Dem had done that? Let me help you. Multiple investigations and talk of impeachment. I guess, in your mind, a president can lie if he is Republican.

Are you saying that the ACA overhaul should be passed? Despite the fat that the CBO has not come out with their findings?

Hatred of Trump. No, they are just reporting what rump and his people say and do. Please tell us the lies we have heard from the MSM about Trump. We'll wait.

Tell you what Goober, if after 7 separate investigations they find no Trump-Russia connection (as happened in Bengazi investigations), I will stop calling the Trump-Russia situation a scandal. Maybe you should stop referring to Bengazi as a scandal now too.

This stuff is hilarious after all these years.

Coming up on 25 years of daily hatred of liberals and yet, it all means nothing.

Total control of the White House and Congress for the second time since 2000 and...nothing from the GOP and their devoted followers. The first time around, their President didn't issue a veto in six years and economy collapsed at the end of his second term.

Why aren't we living in Conservatopia by now?

No answers.
No solutions.
No legislation about jobs, the economy, nothing.
Nothing on healthcare. Passed hundreds of symbolic repeal measures for years and once they finally get something passed, by one vote, it's already doomed to die.
No leadership.
No governance.

Just a consistent hatred of liberals or anyone else that disagrees with them. Quite a track record.

fantastic comments bhawk.

since the late 90's....conservatives....finally came into some kind of power in congress and since then the greatest thing they have done is be a party of opposition. they are great at saying NO....i mean really great.

but they have no record of passing meaningful legislation.

when i was younger.....i was taught that the GOP meant something more than just NO

but i have have learned that they are not capable of agreeing with even those within their own party

i have always felt that what is best for the country is a progressive congress and a conservative president

that model is now busted and has been for 20+( edit ok since mid to late 80's since i woke up?) years because there is too much lying

today i believe that conservatives....or a faction of them.....want to see the USA broken up and states have the rights to do horrible things to people living in them

there is no compassion in some groups for others in our country and this will continue

i have no idea how this can be fixed

We are not all blind followers. Right now I am in the car with Trump and we were supposed to go to the kwiikie mart for beers but instead he is saying we have to run a few errands first? Eventually I think we will get to the grocery store so I am still supportive (but annoyed). On the other hand GOP leaders and such promised me a ride to the kwikie mart but never bothered to show up. I am very disappointed in the disorganization and in-fighting at a time when we should be more united and getting to work.

As our friend Allaok would quote "dysfunctional govt is a functioning govt" I would rather see disfunction than bad bills. There will be changes and adjustments learning to govern. Last week the NY Times reported he just filled his cabinet (story ran on May 11).

Already seeing a difference in a positive way. Remember the "Shovel -Ready" Stimulus bill Barry meekly signed which was a big kickback to all things DNC ? Or what about earmarks? The bill was riddled with earmarks.

At least I feel comfortable knowing the man at the top is calling the shots.

As our friend Allaok would quote "dysfunctional govt is a functioning govt" I would rather see disfunction than bad bills. There will be changes and adjustments learning to govern. Last week the NY Times reported he just filled his cabinet (story ran on May 11).

If you are in the car with Trump, he is driving you off the cliff. He has demonstrated zero leadership capabilities. On the other hand he has demonstrated exceptional skills at living one self inflicted and chaotic issue to the next. Each day is a challenge for him to cover up for the previous day's lies and misstatements.

Goob - Did you see Trump's joint press conference with the prez of Columbia yesterday. Trump answering question was nothing more than a running diatribe of disjointed talking points. He is uncomfortable & incapable of answering questions that require extemporaneous delivery and a modicum of knowledge of subject matter. He is much better at campaigning and inciting right wing bases. Unfortunately for Trump, his campaign is over...even though he continues to give campaign speeches and continues to let the press know of his great victory since he needs self reassurance.

In a way, one can almost feel sorry for him (well...maybe not) because he is in way over of his head. Sitting behind a desk, ordering personnel to do real estate deals, and bullying people in his private businesses does not translate to leadership and governing a country that exists with checks and balances on a wannabe autocrat or despot.


BoytonBrother - 5/19/2017 at 11:47 AM

To be honest, I'm not concerned about Trump himself. I'm confident in our system of checks and balances. It's been working. I'm more concerned that so many Americans fell for the fear-mongering, and like children created the evil liberal boogeymen in their head to feel more safe and comfortable.


BoytonBrother - 5/19/2017 at 07:38 PM

The NY Times story today is fake news. Trump never said it. It's a liberal witch hunt. And trust me, I know the NY Times is lying, and I know Trump hasn't done anything wrong. Although I work in construction and never majored in political science or law, and don't have any Washington inside sources, I still know the truth about what goes on in The White House. #maga


MartinD28 - 5/19/2017 at 09:07 PM

2 more sets of newly released "great info" reported today on President Witchhunt. Everyday more drip drip drip. Captain chaos boards AF1 & heads out of Dodge.

Maybe things will be better for him in foreign countries. Maybe while he's outside of the states we can make a trade for a leader? How about Trump and 2 draft choices for a 1 stable, competent, and articulate statesman?


OriginalGoober - 5/19/2017 at 09:44 PM

Are you kidding? Let the negotiations begin ......on a number of fronts -Energy, Opec, Terrorism, Foreign aid, and Intel. He may suck at Roberts Rules of Order but we need a negotiator.

It will be covered in imense detail. Lets see whos prediction will be closer to the truth.

The guy with an attention span of an 8 week old puppy will negotiate nothing. He is out of his league on the world stage. Remember, this is the guy that couldn't get his own party to back his campaign promises.

No country would take Trump, even if you threw in a billion dollars.

He hasn't negotiated a thing yet. He has yet to have one of his bills become law. He's failed with his wall, both with Mexico paying for it and even getting US funding through congress, even with his party in complete control.

He may be the worst negotiator in history, with the possible exception of Bill O'Reilly trying to get a date.

His itinerary this coming week is: Saudi Arabia, Israel meeting with their Prime Minister and Mahmoud Abbas, of the Palestinian contingent, and he meets with the Pope at the Vatican on Wednesday, eventually he'll be off the to G-7 Summit, that's all within less than 2 weeks.

I think things may get better with Israel. Ismail Haniya is now the successor of Khaled Meshaal, of Hamas. Ismail is not only extremely handsome, he is an Imam, and a scholar. Trump can begin to learn from the people he needs to learn from. Even the Pope, now I don't think he will have a long discussion with him, but his education regarding the various sects of people is beginning.

The Middle East leaders want to meet and get to know Trump. Even Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wanted to have a dialogue with Trump. People are starting to have hope again that things can change and be different. I am very optimistic also because I came across a boatload of prophecies, and one of the more striking ones is that God will give the US a reprieve from any of the disasters that were slated to take place. The reprieve is for 3 years counting off from September 2016, and that co-incides with Trumps Presidency. If he does make good on his promise to Make America Great Again, things can change. If we continue bombing, shooting, killing others in other lands, looting their resources, God will allow others to take us down so that we cease being a world super power. I mentioned this in my thread. By the way, the future potential invasion of Russian and North Korean forces coming in to the Gulf of Mexico to make landfall here would be from their using Cuba and Venezuela.

Wonder how he negotiated with his buds, Lavrov & Kislyak the other day. What's in it for Trump & his family?

Goob - How come everyday more & more comes out about Trump / Russia? What we're hearing so far is very damaging. Imagine that this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Stay tuned for more & more wonderful tweets from Trump, an individual with a huge persecution complex.


BoytonBrother - 5/19/2017 at 11:29 PM

The President of the United States has called Obama a bad sick person and questioned his citizenship, tried to incarcerate Hillary, fired and name-called the Director of the FBI to Russion officials, but speaks very highly of Putin. Whose side is he on? And some here turn a blind eye and not only give it a pass, but defend it. The entire staff admitted it today. Those people and all of his supporters are traitors to the United States, and you are on the wrong side of history.
