It’s a race between Article 25, Impeachment, and Resignation. We may have the most venal Republicans ever in office. They may be willing to sell their mother’s healthcare down the river for the sake of freedom. They may be willing to kill every norm in politics to provide tax cuts to the very rich. They may be willing to forego democratic principles to stay in power.
But there are enough grownup’s in the world who vote that the GOP can’t last much longer without dealing Trump. He’s a stupid, hyperactive kid with a pocketful of matches in a room full of paper who will burn down our country and the rest of the world. The GOP has some explaining to do.
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.
The information the president relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.
The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said Trump’s decision to do so endangers cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and the National Security Agency.
“This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”
H.R. McMaster just tried to blow smoke up the collective arse of America. He took no questions. The Post is sticking by its story. Trump is too stupid to know what he’s doing. He’s damaging national security. He’s endangering our allies. This is incredibly, incredibly incredible. The biggest threat to national security is our president whose ignorance and hubris, abetted by the Republican Party, bring a new disaster every two or three days.
