    So this was one of the sh!t folders that they keep. (they had one for Trump or Clinton) They would say, OK big guy or girl, this is the unsubstantiated, unvetted, nasty stuff that people say about you but WE can make it go away by saying it's been investigated, vetted and is not true if you see things our way.

    I hope it shows people what kind of man McStain is. This is why we need term limits.

    He must not read his mail. They sent it to him. That's why he was able to say he saw it outside the meeting. It might have taken him a while. Maybe busy tweeting.:D
    I think it's safe to say he is setting himself up for one of these types of things a week.:(

    I saw Obama skipping down the street.
    I would love to be there when he finds out he actually needs to do something. Hmm. Maybe not.:rolleyes:

    I don't think so, Trump is not the sort of person to take this without saying 'You're Fired'.

    This looks like a classic dirty trick.

    From the NYT:


    So now according to a senior intelligence official with knowledge of preparations for the briefing the memo was for the sole effect of helping Trump to draw the distinction for Trump between analyzed intelligence and unvetted "disinformation." They didn't show him or talk about the contents of the memo (or the one about Hillary) so it looks like he was able to tell the obvious difference between the two with no extra help.
    I would like to know just who and why that person believed that this was a good idea during a factual briefing session about serious problems with Russia espionage operations with the top intel chiefs. It seems a very unusual element to have in the briefing folder during these types of circumstances unless you think you might need it to 'convince' someone.

    The kids are probably next in line. That one's really gonna make him grumpy.

    A few steps ahead? Don't bet on it, he's already running stings to see who is leaking.

    Good trade craft. The guy is stubborn as it took far too long to get him to say Russia/Putin are targeting the US with cyber-warfare.

    He’s an egomaniac with a long history of going rogue and not giving a sh!t what anyone thinks about it. The Deep-State is seriously worried he will drop a ton of bricks on people that prevent him from doing what it takes to be popular (doing the things he campaigned on). They do not have super villain powers.

    Yep, If nothing else he's stubborn. Kept that story going for a week. Probably to shorten up his conflict of interest problem.
    But Clapper talked again about it so we probably get another day of it.:(
    I'm not so sure he won't have a similar problem with a few Senators. Could get exciting!

    The Prevaricator is out the door with a retirement check but the rest of the intelligence community doesn't have a choice about serving Trump.

    Maybe that's why they can't get along.
    The IC thinks Trump is the Prevaricator.:D
    But he really can't help it. It's a part of his illness.(Sociopath)

    “existential crisis” prompted by the imminent prospect of serving “someone for whom the truth is irrelevant”

    It takes one to know one, so yes, they won't be able to BS Trump with the usual lies. Trump would have been a natural as an intelligence agent. I would love to see him clean house of the inbred fossils.

    You keep refering like that about Clapper. But you never say that about the supreme leader, why? there are video after video of him saying things that he later comments,"I never said that", when someone brings it up again. Doesn't that make him the Prevaricator in chief? And none of the usual "he not in office yet" stuff is a good enough answer.

    Quote nsaspook in an attachment, "‘The meeting was held. They left, and immediately the word got out that I had a meeting. So, I don’t want that. It’s very unfair to the country. It’s very unfair to our country what’s happening,’ he said."

    You really believe that? With the 24/7 scrutiny the supreme leader has now, that he could hold a meeting that the press wouldn't know about? Unless the IC has a 'cloak of invisibility' they couldn't get near him with out someone seeing.

    When he lies to Congress under oath like Clapper then the supreme leader will earn the title of 'Prevaricator in chief'. So now he's just Trump the lesser, honors are earned not given.

    Yes, the president(-elect) has meetings the press doesn't and shouldn't know about. The press doesn't have evil superpowers.
