UPDATE: Trump admitted this AM that he shared highly classified intel with the Russians while they were Trump's guests in the Oval Office. The Russians interfered with America's presidential election that delivered the White House to Russian admirer, Donald J. Trump.
Trump bragged to the Russians in the Oval Office: "I get great intel." Then shared classified information with a country that is hostile to the United States.
When trump was campaigning for the presidency he regularly told his rallies that Hillary Clinton was not qualified to be president because she allowed classified information to be sent out on her unsecured emails.
Trump willingly gave classified information that could jeopardize our allies to the Russians.
David Brooks, NYTimes:
From all we know so far, Trump didn’t do it because he is a Russian agent, or for any malevolent intent. He did it because he is sloppy, because he lacks all impulse control, and above all because he is a 7-year-old boy desperate for the approval of those he admires.
The Russian leak story reveals one other thing, the dangerousness of a hollow man.
But Trump’s statements don’t necessarily come from anywhere, lead anywhere or have a permanent reality beyond his wish to be liked at any given instant.
We’ve got this perverse situation in which the vast analytic powers of the entire world are being spent trying to understand a guy whose thoughts are often just six fireflies beeping randomly in a jar.
"Impeach and remove this idiot. Period.
President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.
On second thought, it's not at all unfuckingbelievable. It is, rather, classic Trump. Impeach him for criminality, or incompetence, or stupidity.
Just get that dumb son of a bitch out of the White House.
He is America's greatest danger.
Of that, perhaps this will convince even some of the nitwitted Trumpeteers.
The Washington Post's blockbuster story is a long one. But its moral is short.
Again: That dumb son of a bitch needs to be booted from the White House.
Update: Moments ago I flipped to Fox News, as I am wont to do in such astonishing times. And there sat Laura Ingraham, slamming Republican Sen. Bob Corker for having slammed Trump for revealing highly classified material to the Russians. That's how deep the sickness goes. One only hopes that it is deeper than it is wide. My guess, it is."
