Reports now suggest that it was Israel who collected the sensitive information that was then allegedly shared with Russia by Trump.

Just read that here:


If true, that makes this situation even more serious than first reported.

Let's get this clown out of the White House already!!

UPDATE: Seems there are reports saying Israeli Ambassador is okay with Trump sharing intel with Russians.

-C!

And now it's revealed that Trump asked Comey to drop the case against Flynn the day after Flynn was shitcanned. How about that for obstruction of justice?

Surely by now the Republicans realize he's on his way down, down, down.

He'd also asked Comey to look into jailing reporters for publishing classified information.

THAT is f***ing terrifying.

I'm hoping Comey's notes blow the roof off Trump's pathetic sham of an administration, but so far, he's been bulletproof thanks to a complicit GOP-dominated Congress. Here's hoping 2018 flushes them out of the system.

What the fuck would Trump have to gain by getting rid of the head of the census bureau? 

--

I don't think there's necessarily any connection there.  But the Census is a Big Deal and needs a firm hand on the tiller.  It's sort of a précis of what's wrong with this entire administration: it doesn't have people in place who are invested in their responsibilities.  Hell, in many, many positions there aren't people in place at all.

Lengthy CNBC Op-Ed piece about the mealy-mouthed nature of the Trump administration and the questionable integrity of even its more respected members: LINK

And the people who are in place are actively opposed to the stated mission of the department in their charge.

Trump delivered the commencement address at the Coast Guard Academy. In his address, he complained that no politician has “been treated worse or more unfairly” than he has.

I immediately had flashbacks of last year's Republican primaries!!

Guess he can dish it out but can't take it!!! What a dope!!

One might think Abraham Lincoln, John Kennedy, James Garfield and William McKinley were treated worse.

The stock market is taking this latest scandal seriously. The various other White House controversies since Trump took office have been like water off a duck's back as far as the stock market has gone, but the market is seriously crapping off today -- the S&P 500 is down about 1.5%.
