i remember the $hillary leaks, when the content took precedence over the act....
now the leak is bad, but the fact national security was at risk, no biggie.
- lets scan the rooms for bugs and people who dont have full allegiance with Trump so things dont get leaked anymore... right...

people were applauding the leaks on hill, painting the 'leakers' as saviors and it didnt matter but the focus should be on the content of the leaks... memberries.... they fade so quickly


there are much more leaks to come in 2 - 3 weeks.

Pay no attention to the shady Russian connections.


The Shady Russian connections were all there with Obama and Clinton,
as discussed here.

Obama was doing his own off the record sanction talks apparently.

But....no one cared then?

Besides people leaks, they need to look for bugs left behind by Obama's people.


Possibly part of .......

The O'Gladio Conspiracy

If Trump was going to just cover-up the Flynn problem, why is he making it public ?


Trump obviously uncovered an internal conspiracy.



I think the beavers in the dam better move to a different pond.

I wonder if Flynn, a loyal Trump supporter, now thrown under the bus, will spill the beans about the "real" Russian connection?

It won't be a little leak...but a veritable Tsunami.

In politics.........a nasty business...you reap what you sow.

And during the Trump campaign, Trump insulted a lot of people. They won't forget. They may act like they are playing the game but patiently waiting to get their revenge.

nasty business...politics.

Obama was President. It is part of his job description. Flynn was a private citizen that had no governmental authority to negotiate anything with a foreign government.

I don't get why people are having such a hard time with this.

Well, it's people who care less about truth and more about some sort of team player mentality. Their feet are planted where they are.... There's also been a lot of talk about Russian trolls... and for those people, the only position can be pro-Trump/Russia to the very end. Bottom line... don't expect logic and reason to suddenly emerge from the Trump supporters. That's never been a component of their movement.

This might help resolve the leak problem:

U.S. Secret Service director stepping down


U.S. Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy plans to step down next month, the agency said on Tuesday, two years after he took charge of the agency following high-profile security lapses by the service responsible for protecting the president.
...
Clancy's departure means that President Donald Trump will be able to select his own security chief.
...
Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, named Clancy head of the Secret Service in February 2015 after he had served as acting director for four months.

Obama can not just lift sanctions all by his lonesome.
Or did he?



Flynn was a private citizen that had no governmental authority to negotiate anything with a foreign government.


It was a set up imo.

And revenge for Flynn's sons bread topping comments.
That part became apparent last night when Hillary was
gloating over this, and even sullied her self tweeting about it.

Is there an actual transcript of this call floating around somewhere or are we all making our own assuptions about it because that's all we know ... what we've been told and had insinuated by the press?

You can be sure that any transcript that exists has been seen by the guys in charge of Intel whose security clearances are well above our paygrades.

That was one of the biggest gloats of "I'm untouchable"
no reason to bring that up.


The media in the shillary leaks did not touch what was in them, official documents and an official organization letting them out.
The media is now covering every whisper leak out of the WH and treating it all as fact.
CNN told us we were not even aloud to look at wikileaks.

We still don't know what actually happened. Unlike wikileaks there are no documents or recordings released.

Yep.

That's why I'm basically sitting on my powder. I want to see what was actually talked about before I form my opinion on how damaging this was.

For all anyone knows, there was only a passing reference to the sanctions without any in-depth discussion of formal policy. For all anyone knows, it was the Russian who brought the topic up and Flynn briefly discussed it in that context because it would shortly be his job to deal with the guy all the time. Simply admitting the sanctions will exist and are the framework for the discussion is still talking about them but not in any way policy related.

But without that actual transcript, we don't really know what occurred.

It could be that innocent or it could have been more.

I so agree, I think she lowered herself quite alot there,
she could have just let Reines comment alone, and would
have been better off. His tweet was in very poor taste.

If they are so innocent, why tweet about it at all?

Exactly. I am waiting for proof. They were after Flynn for weeks,
so they got one more. Hope Trump gets the FBI in there to find
out who is leaking. Others under the Obama administration were
not let off the hook, he punished more whistle blowers than any
other president.

As far as I can tell imposing and removing sanctions falls squarely on the shoulders of the Executive Branch. And who is the head of the Executive Branch?

I'd second this request. The press conference yesterday when Trump skipped
over all of the big media for questions ruined their plans for a days worth
of fake news stories, he knew they were going to ask about Flynn so he
did not even give them a chance.

They made up their own stories anyways.

Cant say enough about how the media is acting
as a shadow government right now.
/mini rant over

Yes, but...like the Iran deal you just cant give boatloads
of cash to Iran without congressional approval. But he did.
Anyone else would have fried for that.

I'll wait till I see something substantial on Flynn from an agency,
I'm not convinced by anything the msm says.

Hope to see the FBI hammer come down on the leakers.

This is the leakiest administration I've ever seen! Here's the thing though, a lot of these leaks are protected under the "Whistle Blower Protection Act".

And......"The Press" has the constitutional right to protect their sources.


EXCEPT for when they will endanger national security.

Sounds like he needs to start up a special sector of the police, loyal only to him.

I suggest all black uniforms and flat top hats.


I suggest orange wigs.

I don't see anyone forcing Julian Assange to give up his sources.
