Meanwhile, according to one of my commenters, the right wing bloggers are talking about a fake claim that Senator Elizabeth Warrn had a racist piece of pottery on her kitchen shelf.
I'm not making that up.
That is the equivalent of shoving their fingers in their ears and shouting "LA, LA, LA! I CAN'T HEAR YOU!" Because they'd rather talk about lies and fake videos than what was reported last night.
From the Daily Kos:
"Move over Tea Pot Dome scandal and move over Watergate, there’s a newer, bigger, more dangerous political scandal coming to light—the FBI initiated an investigation into whether Donald Trump, President of the United States, is working on behalf of the Russian government, against American interests.
Repeat: the FBI opened a counterintelligence operation because they had reason to believe the president was not acting in the interested of the United States. If true, it amounts to nothing short of treason.
To gauge just how big this scandal truly is, let’s look at reactions from legal experts, former U.S. Intelligence officers and journalists. First up, Frank Figliuzzi, former Assistant Director for Counterintelligence at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He’s somebody who understands precisely what it would take for the FBI to take the drastic step of opening a criminal investigation into the sitting President of the United States.
Figliuzzi says the FBI would never open such an investigation based purely on Trump’s behavior, that they would have other hard evidence, such as damning audio intercepts."
'The FBI is privy to all kinds of intel ... if you’re going to open a case on the POTUS, you're going to have more than just unstable behavior … you're going to have something that gives you at least a reasonable suspicion if not specific and articulable facts.'
"Take a listen to Figliuzzi, who made clear that in his 25 years with the FBI, specifically working on counterintelligence, there is much more to this story than the public knows now."
Trump's reaction to this hydrogen bombshell of a report?
He tweeted that James Comey is "a total sleaze."
