Tramp isn't attacking CRITICS, he's going after WITNESSES


Recommended Posts

Rachel Maddow shows the prevalence of classified intelligence in the Trump Russia investigation and notes that the people Donald Trump is threatening with having their security clearance revoked are those who would need that clearance to testify for the investigation.

Why, as President, would you allow a group of people that were actively trying to sink your Presidency, stay in a position that allows them to do just that?

 

Everyone on that list is a devout anti-Trumper... and will use every bit of leverage they can muster to destroy/delegitimize this President.

 

I hope he does cut them loose.

On the topic of the thread, Rachel has a point. He may not going after people for exercising their first amendment right. He may be trying to suppress their testimony in an upcoming trial. 

 

How would he be suppressing testimony by revoking their security clearance?

 

You don't think that everyone on that list already has everything they are going to get on Trump at this point?

Maddow’s thesis is that they need clearance to review their own files to properly prepare for congressional committee hearings. Revocation of security clearance means they will no longer be allowed to see their own notes. 

 

It is like denying a police investigator access to his notes prior to testimony. He can still speak from recollection but his testimony would be far less accurate. 

 

OFC, it presupposes that there will be congressional hearings. I suppose that’s a valid supposition given that the Democrats will probably take the House in November.

As crooked as the crew on that list is, I'm sure they have everything they need on their "personal" servers...

 

LOL

Trump looks at everything through a business man's perspective.

 

If you owned a company, and found out that a segment of your senior management team were actively working to destroy you and your company, would you allow them to continue to have access to everything related to company business after they were let go?

Nonsense, these are patriots who served the country with distinction. They rose through the ranks to senior positions under presidents from both parties.

 

If your boys best defense is that every witness against him is an Obama plan, he is done for.

America is not Trump’s company so the analogy fails.

 

The allegation that Americans are actively working to destroy America is not only unsubstantiated, it is nonsensical on the face of it.

Because this isn't a dictatorship, much as you long to grovel at the feet of a powerful master.
