Trump, Citing No Evidence, Suggests Susan Rice Committed Crime

Just another example of Trump's incompetence and malignant lying.


"President Donald Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, has reportedly concluded that his predecessor, Susan Rice, did nothing wrong when she tried to learn the identities of officials on Trump's transition team who were mentioned in US intelligence reports last year. "

How much longer do we put up with the sickness, the evil, the wretchedness and all the sweeping degradations of the Trump presidency?

It just doesn't matter. For the folks that place party over country and those who hate the gubermint for no reason other than it is the gubermint it just does not matter Shaw. It simply is what it is, it is what it will continue to be. As for me, and perhaps others, a big middle finger to them all. Life is simply too short to sweat this shit any more. Those who CHOOSE to get it will. Those who chose not to won't. It is after all their choice, is it not?

Mueller must be real close.

This is why Hannity is going after Pufnstuf (AKA McMaster), calling him one of the "deep state people". I am watching AM Joy right now (a repeat from Friday, I believe) and Joy says (citing a tweet by Darren Kaplan) "there's been a 5300% increase in the use of the hashtag #FireMcMaster by Russian bots and trolls".

As per Wikipedia "a Twitterbot is a type of bot software that controls a Twitter account via the Twitter API. The bot software may autonomously perform actions such as tweeting, retweeting, liking, following, unfollowing, or direct messaging other accounts".

A 3/30/2017 article titled "Russian bots still interfering in U.S. politics after election, says expert witness" reports that "upwards of 1,000 paid internet trolls working out of a facility in Russia, in effect, taking over series of computers, which is then called a botnet".

POLITICS WITH CHARLES P. PIERCE

He's Not Afraid. He's Not Going Away.
Robert Mueller is going after all of it.

James S., Maybe you didn't read the post correctly, but it is Trump's National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster, who said Susan Rice did not commit any crime. Take your objection up with General McMaster, not that it will change anything.

From CNN: "...conservatives,,,raised objections to his decision earlier this year to extend a security clearance for Susan Rice, President Barack Obama's final national security adviser who has been accused by some conservatives of mishandling classified information involving Trump campaign associates.

A senior administration official said Thursday that McMaster has written letters to all past national security advisers -- including Rice -- extending their security clearances. The official characterized the letters as a pro-forma move that allows the former advisers to participate in administration discussions about national security matters that originated under their tenure.

But the impression that McMaster was going easy on Rice pervaded certain conservative websites..."

Shaw... facts are the sort of nuance the extreme right, exemplified by James S, can't seem to grasp.

Mueller has no incentive to reach a conclusion. He would drop from the limelight and be the target for one of the political parties the same as comey.
As long as this "investigation" in center front and the MSM can devote 1/2 of every broadcast to trump trashing the president cannot push through his agenda, that and the gutless republicans in congress.
If it were a democrat president the congress would lock step behind his agenda and the media would praise him without having a clue what he is doing, guess I should have said he or she because lizzy is the next democrat nominee. He or she may even get a nobel prize for showing up.

Skud, as long as you and your fellow 30 percenters mock Mueller's special counsel probe as an "investigation," you will continue to be irrelevant and pitied. That you mock a man like Mueller, who has an impeccable record of integrity in his job over the liar and fraud con man in "The Dump," I mean White House, says more about your and the other 30 percenters' values rather than Mueller's. Your rank partisanship has blinded you to the point where you've chosen to believe a proven liar, huckster, fraud, and con man over a man with a indesputably honest reputation.

That's a huge indication of how deeply and fatally Trumpitis has infected the current 30 percent of the GOP.

Incompetence and arrogance are Trump's strong points. Pointing a finger at Susan
Rice is a ridiculous act to cover his own slimy actions before, during and post
election. True, there seem to be people who admire that.

skudrunner said...

Hillary, Rice, Holder, Lynch were all very upstanding people who lied and nothing will happen. Crystal told the truth and got canned, great leader you support.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Stanley McChrystal was fired by insubordination. You have a sloppy memory and didn't even know how to spell his name.

It's really hilarious to read a Trump supporter whine about politicians who lie. Really. I'm ROTFLMAO right now.
