isnt this about before the election and not after? and perhaps this is what lead to him loose faith in some of those briefings but hey dont let the facts get in the way of orange man bad i guess
and with a senate majority and them pretty much rubber stamping them he may even set a reccord on this front,too bad FISA does not have its own judges to replace but hey bet he gets through the other 54 plus the 109 for the district courts before hes re-elected

Also, even though Obama was President, Hillary and Bill had far more experience and connections. Obama was more of a "wanna-be". Hillary/Bill ran a global crime syndicate. A ruthless, heartless one.

The supposed "bombshell" IG Report has been delayed until late July or early August. (IG Horowitz's corruption meter is nearing the red "warning!" area.)
The stuff that Barr and Durham are "looking into" (Barr won't even call it an "investigation"), has been out in the open for over a year, thanks to investigations conducted by the House and Senate from Feb 2017 thru Dec 2018.
If Barr/Durham/Huber/Horowitz were legitimate deep-state cleaners, they would do just what Bob Mueller did. They would produce indictments as they go along. Criminal referrals have been consistently sent to the DOJ by Congressional investigators, since April 2018. Just tie up some loose ends on each referral, and arrest 1 at a time....like Mueller did.
If the DOJ proves to be corrupt from Barr on down, it will be up to the people and the military to drain the swamp. I'm ready and willing to assist, if President Trump requests citizen support in the efforts.
I don't have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years. Could be eight years — but eight years. I don't need that,” Trump said. “But I do say, ‘If something should change, let us know.’”
In lieu of receiving the daily briefings every day, Trump said the retired generals he has nominated for his Cabinet, James Mattis as secretary of defense and John Kelly as secretary of homeland security, are being regularly briefed. As is Vice President-elect Mike Pence, who Trump called “one of my very good decisions.”
And reports of his behavior during briefings before the election indicate he wasn't much interested in them. So, yeah, I can see that rather than deal with a twitchy and petulant political figure, they'd just give a five minute summary and give more detail to the person more interested in hearing from them.
...its ok they can keep getting mad at him and talking smack but hey were still packing the courts

But he was charged with lying and he pled guilty to lying so what exculpatory evidence could there be?
Either he lied or he didn't lie.?
