After ignoring urging of FBI & DOJ not to release misleading Nunes memo because it omits material facts, @POTUS now expresses concerns over sharing precisely those facts with public and seeks to send it back to the same Majority that produced the flawed Nunes memo to begin with:

1. Dems should have sent Trump a copy of Nunes memo to see what he would do.

27. Don't worry - the high-speed link to the Kremlin will give dump the correct response.

How much more does the NSA know about these links that they won't share? I certainly hope our intel community is doing better than the repuglicans like to portray.

I appreciate Adam Schiff and all the Dems so much.. who are able to keep their cool and sanity while fighting for our ever loving Democracy!

8. I'm pretty sure that either Nunes or someone else

gives the WH everything that the house investigation does, including all documents and testimonies. t-rump can't and don't read because he doesn't understand nada. Someone else does it and then tells him what they think he needs to know.

17. Agree

Nunes' memo was a dud and discredited from nearly the moment it was released except with the Fox News viewers, who would believe the moon was made of green cheese if Trump said so. It would be nice to have the truth out, but that won't change the minds of the Fox News true believers.

28. Agree with the non-disclosure of classified info. However it will get out. And there will be another

b'gazi, email, leaker investigation trying to suck the air out of the news cycles.

Perhaps this is all part of the ploy - release the lame nunes pos, encourage a dem rebuttal, leak the rebuttal saying it was leaked by the dems while it was that hicks/sanders/conroy/etc. group that actually leaks it.

Those russkis/gops are mighty crafty!

that damaging information out and would be happy conduits. But won't be expecting Feinstein to give genuinely damaging information to any of them. She's a long-time intel committee member, chaired it for several years, and kind of hard-nosed on security.

18. He's doing a bang-up job. I wonder if Ryan is going to kick him off the intel committee.

He's doing a really good job and letting the public know what's going on. I'm sure that doesn't sit well with Ryan.

The Washington Examiner (a Repub slanted site?) wrote an article saying Nunes should be fired from the committee because he's too political....AND Schiff should be fired from it, too, for the SAME REASON! A warped argument, since Schiff isn't originating political statements. He's informing the public of what the Repubs and WH are doing/have done. Big difference.

But I fear for Schiff's placement on that committee.

25. Ryan can't kick any Democratic senators off the committee,

much less our ranking member.

Certainly, as you yourself point out, the Republicans' false equivalence you've posted here IS a warped argument, and Schiff is merely using their own actions to expose them for the lying weasels they are.

Personally, I'd put my money on fearing for the Republicans on that committee.

And only Pelosi can remove Schiff?

32. Each party names members and their ranks on committees.

Assignments are a big really deal. Members work toward desired positions for years.

Changes such as after elections, or even as occurred with two new members after Al Franken left, involve lots of moving people around and deal making. In that recent case, I believe a new committee position was created so that someone who had earned a right to position wasn't shorted.

In any case, they aren't the decision of any one person. At least not in the egalitarian Democratic Party.

The Repubs' organization is mostly top-down authoritarian. We don't do that.

33. Pelosi appointed Schiff to that committee.

What Pelosi giveth, Pelosi can taketh away. She's the leader of the House Dem. Party caucus.

But I don't see her replacing Schiff. He's supremely qualified and has been doing a great job under very difficult conditions.

34. I believe you think so. If Pelosi rode roughshod over the

rest of the leadership, kicking her power in their faces, they'd wonder if senility was setting in, certainly the only excuse they'd accept. But she's never behaved that way in all her years of leadership. Look at Schumer, same thing in the senate.

No Tom "The Hammer" Delays in our party. That's a Republican thing.

The people who rise to the top of our party are good at working with others to develop consensuses, and believe in their importance, or they don't get there. That's why Elizabeth Warren was positioned for swift elevation to leadership level and another big name from 2016 was not.

37. Respect for the authority of the Party Leader.

She doesn't have to run ramshod over anyone. She merely discusses the issue with Schiff and others she regularly consults, and then she makes a decision. That's her JOB.

You don't seem clear on the job of a party leader.

I doubt either party leader would go against a large # who disagree in his/her own party. But it's each leader's call. That's their JOB, and why they have that position. To make those decisions.

36. Ryan and Nunes can really gum up....

..... the House Intel Comm..

Just send Nunes off on an endless and meaningless goose chase. Gobble up all the productive time on crap/poop investigations that mean zero. Eventually run out the clock with nothing to show. Projecting tr-dump as the innocent victim who the Dems pick on again and again and deserves only our heart felt sympathy.

Then come election 2018 Russia is unimpeded to meddle the results to the favor and advantage of the Rethugs Nazi Party giving tr-dump a stronger political foot hold and control over our government.

The ability of our Democracy to sustain this attack is being tested. Only by voting in astronomical number this coming midterm election will we be able preserve this Democracy for our kids and grand children.

TPTB want a Fascist Oligarchy and are damn close to achieving their final goal.

as soon as possible. Trump is a horrible mistake of history, but the march of a corporate fascism that's taken over the Rethug party is not. What's so amazing is that we can completely defeat it just by voting.

Section 6.
The Senators and Representatives shall receive a compensation for their services, to be ascertained by law, and paid out of the treasury of the United States. They shall in all cases, except treason, felony and breach of the peace, be privileged from arrest during their attendance at the session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any speech or debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other place.

No Senator or Representative shall, during the time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil office under the authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the emoluments whereof shall have been increased during such time: and no person holding any office under the United States, shall be a member of either House during his continuance in office.


However, I believe the cameras and other recording devices will be quickly disabled. The "people" will be escorted from the chamber and the gavel will be used to try to drown the voice of freedom and justice.
