Betsy is under the radar.

Firing Sessions ups impeachment probability significantly.

^ Bush and Obama were known partiers in their younger days, he was probably hooking them up...

It makes sense for the presidential doctor to be a little unscrupulous-- you think a normal doc would have gone on national TV and lied about Trump's health?

Kinda weird for Trump to out him, unless Trump has someone even shadier lined up for the job.

Is it a serious scandal for a doctor to be administering drugs like modafinil and soma to staff when on overseas trips? Unless he was handing out methamphetamine injections reminiscent of JFK, I have trouble seeing this as a real issue.

The drinking on the job claim seems more serious, but I'm not sure if this is a couple of drinks at the hotel bar or drinking until you pass out in the hotel hallway like the incident with 3 secret service agents in Amsterdam a couple years back.

20+ people probably wouldn't report someone if he was handing out a normal amount of drugs or drinking a normal amount at appropriate times

but i'm not a trump apologist, so maybe the employees are just deep state

Dude, you’re getting ridiculous with these stupid attacks. Obviously the GOP are comical villains, and have been for a long ass time.

My whole point is that they get away with it partly because media, including MSNBC, desperately pulls the dialogue to the right.

We should be laughing this stuff off as absurd, but we can’t because media outlets allow it as part of the debate.

So, in a week we’ve gone from “vote to confirm Haspel because she wasn’t involved in torture” to “Dems are weak so vote to confirm Haspel because she isn’t afraid to torture.”

Interesting tactic.

Ray McGovern (former CIA analyst) got himself arrested at Haspel's confirmation hearing for calling her a torturer.

https://news.vice.com/en_us/article/evkg9e/former-cia-ray-mcgovern-protested-at-gina-haspels-cia-confirmation-hearing

Quote :
"The hubbub started when Sen. Jack Reed, a Democrat from Rhode Island, asked Haspel about the morality of “enhanced interrogation techniques” (read: torture) and how she would react if one of her own officers were tortured. Would she consider a CIA officer being waterboarded by “terrorists” to be immoral? Reed wanted to know.

“Sorry to interrupt here,” McGovern said, standing up in the audience. “Senator Wyden, you deserve a direct answer.” Wyden, however, wasn’t questioning Haspel at the time, so it’s unclear what McGovern was referring to.

At that point, Sen. Richard Burr, the head of the committee, ordered Capitol Police to escort McGovern out of the room. And as they did, McGovern yelled something inaudible about waterboarding."

How do Dems reconcile a no for Haspel, when they approved John Brennan who was #4 at the CIA during this time?

It’s hypocrisy for sure but Brennan should’ve never been confirmed.

Also, Obama didn’t campaign explicitly in favor of torture like Trump did so the circumstances are different.

Good for Rex

Quote :
" In a veiled rebuke of President Trump, former Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson warned on Wednesday that American democracy was threatened by a growing “crisis of ethics and integrity.”

“If our leaders seek to conceal the truth, or we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then we as American citizens are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom,” he said in a commencement address at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va.

Even small falsehoods and exaggerations are problematic, Mr. Tillerson said. He did not mention Mr. Trump by name, although the president is prone to both.

“When we as people, a free people, go wobbly on the truth even on what may seem the most trivial matters, we go wobbly on America,” he said."

It's pretty rich to hear "Wayne Tracker" accuse others of being dishonest, I'm guessing he's trying to set himself up for his next corporate gig.



But such is the nature of the Black-hole of Trump lies and corruption. Even shit bags like Tillerson are disgusted when they peer into that bottomless pit, then they pat themselves on the back because they're surprised as anyone that they still have a conscience.

So can Trump fire sessions and replace him with Pruitt now, like Pruitt wanted anyway?

Resignation letter:

Quote :
"Mr. President, it has been an honor to serve you in the Cabinet as Administrator of the EPA. Truly, your confidence in me has blessed me personally and enabled me to advance your agenda beyond what anyone anticipated at the beginning of your Administration. Your courage, steadfastness and resolute commitment to get results for the American people, both with regard to improved environmental outcomes as well as historical regulatory reform, is in fact occurring at an unprecedented pace and I thank you for the opportunity to serve you and the American people in helping achieve those ends.

That is why is hard for me to advise you I am stepping down as Administrator of the EPA effective as of July 6. It is extremely difficult for me to cease serving you in this role first because I count it a blessing to be serving you in any capacity, but also, because of the transformative work that is occurring. However, the unrelenting attacks on me personally, my family, are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us.

My desire in service to you has always been to bless you as you make important decisions for the American people. I believe you are serving as President today because of God’s providence. I believe that same providence brought me into your service. I pray as I have served you that I have blessed you and enabled you to effectively lead the American people. Thank you again Mr. President for the honor of serving you and I wish you Godspeed in all that you put your hand to.

Your Faithful Friend,

Scott Pruitt"

Why did Peter Strozk get fired by the politically appointed Deputy Directornof the FBI after he overruled the career disciplinary people?

What a mystery?

And why are anti-Trump texts even something that should get someone disciplined? It’s crazy to think the notoriously conservative FBI didn’t have hundreds of people texting anti-Obama and Clinton stuff.

This is some banana republic nonsense.

Kinda nuts just a few weeks ago someone wrote a letter saying how dangerously incompetent trump was and there's people secretly running the government.

Then just before that the President's lawyer plead guilty in court, and said the President helped him commit crimes.

AND we haven't heard any Mueller news in a while...
