Rachel Maddow Busts Trump For Being Guilty Of Crimes He Accused Hillary Clinton Of Committing



While much of the media attention is focused on Donald Trump’s bumbling response to Hurricane Dorian and his continued use of the presidency for personal enrichment, new reporting on Monday showed that the president has been a disaster for the U.S. intelligence community.

According to CNN, [T]he United States successfully extracted from Russia one of its highest-level covert sources inside the Russian government” largely because of Trump’s irresponsible handling of classified intelligence.

As Rachel Maddow pointed out on her program on Monday night, Trump and Republicans spent the entire 2016 election cycle saying Hillary Clinton couldn’t be trusted with classified information, but it is this president who has been egregiously mismanaging sensitive material.

“Trump so egregiously mishandled classified information and, in so doing, destroyed highly sensitive, highly effective foreign intelligence operations by telling the Russians about them,” the MSNBC host said.

"and now NBC News and The New York Times matching it as well – is that as president, Trump so egregiously mishandled classified information and, in so doing, destroyed highly sensitive, highly effective foreign intelligence operations by telling the Russians about them, that U.S. intelligence decided that Preesident Trump might burn America’s best source inside the Russian government. He might expose that person. He might get that person killed. And so they had to emergency ex-filtrate that person out of Russia to save his or her life. Not only does that tell you something about our president. It also means that U.S. intelligence no longer has that priceless source in the upper echelons of the Russian government." - Rachel Maddow

2. Why do I know Faux news won't run this story?

If Fox runs it, or trump tells this story, it will be described as Trump singlehandedly rushing into Russia, fighting off an army of armed men, and transporting this person on his back into the safety of the USA, but not before making a needed layover at his golf resort in Scotland for a week.

4. TRump is always projecting his own traits

And guilt onto others.

How much damage has tRump done to us, to this country? And he continues!!! Thank goodness our intell agencies are protecting sources from Trump's knowledge.

That unfortunate Russian man would be most wise to go into deep, deep hiding, as another DUer pointed out on another thread.
