Rep. Adam Schiff saw through Trump's threat to take away national security clearance from several former national security officials to call it what it really is, a presidential enemies list.
A former senior national security official told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace that people need to act if Trump moves to strip security clearances away from former officials who criticize him.
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper for the first time has revealed that U.S. intelligence agencies had identified a suspect who served as the “cut-out” for Russian intelligence to funnel thousands of hacked Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails and documents to WikiLeaks.
Rudy Giuliani had quite the unhinged interview with Dana Bash several days ago.
As PoliticusUSA Editor-In-Chief, and my colleauge Jason Easley described that interview in his piece titled Rudy Giuliani Screws Up And Admits Mueller Wants To Interview Trump On Obstruction of Justice:
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper questioned Trump's fitness for office and speculated that Trump's behavior was an indication that he is looking for a way out of the presidency.
"This affinity for Russia is a very curious thing," Clapper said. "Bear in mind, Russia is an existential threat to this country."
James Clapper said the Russians will continue to collect intelligence and interfere in U.S. elections so long as the United States, led by Trump, refuses to "push back."
Chuck Todd interviewed former DNI James Clapper on Meet The Press, and the picture that was painted did major damage to the Trump White House's version of the Russia scandal.
The Trump lies are falling fast as former DNI James Clapper debunked Trump's story of dinner with James Comey. According to Clapper, it was Trump who asked Comey to dinner, and Comey was reluctant to go, and this is important because it suggests that Trump's true motive for the dinner was obstruction of justice.
The testimony that Sally Yates and James Clapper gave to the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism dealt a fatal blow to the White House’s claims that the Russia story is fake news.
Former President Obama's Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said on Meet the Press, "there was no such wiretap activity mounted against the president, president-elect, candidate or campaign."
It appears that Rand Paul realized that since he has presidential ambitions, he needs to temper his uber-libertarian ways a bit. He started this process today by selling out Edward Snowden.
