Trump’s Public Enemies List Is an Impeachable Offense

It's revolting to suggest that we need to help the Saudis kill civilians in order to stand up to Iran. Our only "emergency" is a President who cares more about making money for his defense contractor buddies than the democratic will of Congress or the moral catastrophe in Yemen.

“So Trump’s position is that his tax returns should be kept private but the CIA’s ‘sources and methods’ should be made public”

.@realDonaldTrump says after giving AG Barr power to declassify secrets he hopes they’ll “see how the hoax or witch-hunt started” says it was attempted coup. So he already has dictated the outcome of this probe before it starts?

Fmr @FBI Special Agent, @AshaRangappa_ : "If Barr weaponizes classified info, it could harm our intelligence community in a very serious way"

AG Barr is now Trump’s evil brain. This is a bogus investigation of the origins of the Russian investigation. Putin probably asked Trump to find out who informed on him in the Kremlin, and Trump has no option lest Putin out him over whatever. Where is Mr. Clean, Bob Mueller?

JUST IN: The government has formally moved tonight to take possession of Paul Manafort's Trump Tower apartment.

Trump’s order giving AG Barr authority to declassify CIA secrets is highly unusual. Playing politics with the intelligence community will cause our sources and allies to think twice before sharing secrets with us.

Mark Warner: "People risk their lives to gather the intelligence material that Pres. Trump and A.G. Barr are so eager to politicize. Selectively declassifying sources and methods in order to serve a political agenda will make it harder for the intel community to do their jobs."

“The identities of the others arrested are yet to be released, but some are residing in the US and held public positions of trust”

Opinion: If Republicans hate government so much they should leave

Perhaps Mr. Mueller doesn't want his testimony to be used as a platform, by Republicans in the Trump Show and Democratic POTUS candidates, to play to the cameras. An opening statement will allow Mr. Mueller to create a record and speak freely to Americans without interruption.

Trump just said he wants his Barr to also look at the UK, Australia & Ukraine. He said it’s the greatest hoax that has perpetrated our country. In other words he’s saying the RU investigation is fake & that RU did not attack us, but allies helped us with the hoax.

“Backpedaling on putting the first African American woman on paper money tells women and girls and people of color that they don’t — and never have — mattered.” The Admin’s decision is unacceptable, they must reconsider it
