If he or anyone in the US government does that, they should expect to be hung from the rafters by the morning. There must be no communications black out, no silencing of the press or curtailing of its freedom to criticise the government.

They have so proven it was the Russians.
Getting some people to accept that fact has proven to be a challenge but they've proven it.

If you're waiting for a Kremlin confession you're never gonna get it of course.

Oh, I know they do things behind your back all the time, and so do you. But the press are allowed to criticise them for what they do, even if generally speaking the media is pretty bad at that. In fact, its right in the constitution. The freedom of the press is one of those inviolate things, that cannot be messed with, attacked, watered down, changed, altered, removed or in any way damaged, unless an amendment to the constitution permits that it be so. Good luck getting that crap passed, even in a Republican held Congress and Senate.

That would be what has come to be known as an alternative fact.

How about exhausting the plausible before we tread into the hilariously partisan though?


Oh this was totally a partisan hit job.

Consider this:


"If [the Flynn conversation] was picked up inadvertently, then that would have had to have been approved by someone in the last administration to actually unmask his name so that the FBI or intelligence officials knew who it was on the other end of the phone talking to the Russian ambassador," Nunes told Fox News. "If, in fact, the press reports are right, someone made the decision to deliberately listen to General Flynn's phone calls and that is, I think, unprecedented, unwarranted and flat-out wrong."
...
“Who tapped the phones, who was listening to it, who leaked it?
...
A congressional source told Fox News they believe the intelligence was known to a small circle of Obama administration officials and appointees at the end of last year, including some working within the intelligence community -- and the leaks were targeted and coordinated to undermine the administration.

No it wasn't. Flynn lied to the VP. They brought this down on themselves. Even Fox is reporting the Administration is in total chaos and in spin mode.

That's why the real news doesn't tell known lies. Their reputation not withstanding the advertising revenue lost would sink any media outlet if they did.
Everybody knows you're not supposed to lie.
Well mostly everybody.

But still there are no laws stating this in regards to freedom of the press. There are libel laws and slander laws but they don't pertain exclusively to the press.

When did an established news media EVER loose a license for publishing damaging information?

We do know that trump wishes this but it's not true .

Where's the proof RUSSIA hacked DNC? Do they have a man or woman who confessed? Innocence unless proven guilty.

It's legal for the Democrats to do this, but not Republicans I guess. Sounds like Watergate.

Oh stop. He considered running in 2012 as an independent but ultimately gave his endorsement to Mitt Romney.

No idea what you are getting at?

You think it was out of bounds for the NSA/CIA to be monitoring the calls of the Russian "Ambassador"??

His name is Kislyak..



On Wednesday, Flynn said that he first met Kislyak in 2013 when Flynn was director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and made a trip to Moscow. Kislyak helped coordinate that trip, Flynn said.

....

Kislyak is known for his assiduous cultivation of high-level officials in Washington and was seated in the front row of then-GOP candidate Trump’s first major foreign policy speech in April of last year. The ambassador would not discuss the origin of his relationship with Flynn.

....

Putin’s muted response — which took White House officials by surprise — raised some officials’ suspicions that Moscow may have been promised a reprieve, and triggered a search by U.S. spy agencies for clues.

“Something happened in those 24 hours” between Obama’s announcement and Putin’s response, a former senior U.S. official said. Officials began poring over intelligence reports, intercepted communications and diplomatic cables, and saw evidence that Flynn and Kislyak had communicated by text and telephone around the time of the announcement.

It is looking more and more like Flynn was an outright Russian Operative.

The president is the only temp.
Gov't employees other than cabinet members have a pretty tight union . They keep their jobs.

Party is not a big deal in the US. They all have the same blue US passport and citizenship. They are allowed to switch parties any time they like. Party is not on their passports.

I'm betting the FBI and that it was completely legitimate.
