Trump’s Toady

March 30, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

If this is true, and I highly suspect it is, Nunes not only needs to resign as committee chairman, he needs to resign as congressman.

As we suspected, the person who leaked the report to Nunes is Michael Ellis, a former staff member of the Intelligence Committee and closely tied to Nunes.  But, there’s been another official identified.

[Ezra] Cohen-Watnick is a former Defense Intelligence Agency official who was originally brought to the White House by Michael T. Flynn, the former national security adviser. The officials said that this month, shortly after Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter about being wiretapped on the orders of President Barack Obama, Mr. Cohen-Watnick began reviewing highly classified reports detailing the intercepted communications of foreign officials.

What the fool tarnation is Flynn’s guy, who is often described as his protege, still doing there?  And why are we paying our tax money for him to spend time reviewing “highly classified reports” to try to support Trump’s wacko theory?  How do we know he’s not also reviewing those documents to support Flynn?

And here’s why I think that.

After H.R. McMaster was chosen as the new National Security Adviser, The Washington Post reported that McMaster told Cohen-Watnick that he would be moved to another job. U.S. officials told the Post that CIA Director Mike Pompeo told McMaster that those in the intelligence community didn’t think the young Cohen-Watnick was “up to the job.”

According to Politico, which first reported on this incident, Cohen-Watnick then went to Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner. Two days after McMaster told him he would get a new job, Cohen-Watnick was back in the same place Flynn put him in.

So the new National Security Advisor wanted to fire him but Kushner and Bannon wanted him back in his old job.  He’s 30 years old. What the hell? Does anydamnbody know who is in charge?

I am telling you this one damn thing – this Nunes thing stinks like he’s got a goat under each arm and a pocketful of week old crawfish.

    Drumpf’s toadey. You are righter than you know, Ms JJ.

    There was a time when a scandal forced you from office, but I fear that ship has sailed.

  3. Good link epo. Sack just recently won another award for his cartooning. He’s soooo good and I’m so lucky to have him in the local paper.

    The administration that can’t administrate one damn thing is only 2 months old and already in the running for Most Corrupt Ever with Harding, Grant, GWB, and a few others. Sickening. I hate those bastards.

  4. “When Republicans imagined having a president of their own and control of Congress, they thought it would be a nonstop string of legislative achievements and improvements to government, bringing an inspiring new era of efficiency and effectiveness that showed Americans what the GOP was really capable of.

    “That is not quite how things are working out.”

    Oh, I don’t know— I think it is. We’re certainly seeing what they’re capable of.

  5. L'Angelomisterioso says:

    @Rhea#4-It’s not working for the secondary reasons cited in the Wapo article, but the primary reason is, nobody, dRUMPf included, knows how our government is structured and is supposed to work.More primarily is that Republicans in general, and maybe dRUMPf in particular have neither any interest in nor aptitude for governance.

  6. L’Angelomisterioso, there have been a number of businessmen running for president on the “I know how to make government work because I’m rich” platform. This is the first time, at least in living memory, that one of those damn fools has actually gotten into office without a clue as to how government works. Wouldn’t be so bad if they’d start where they should by running for city council. Either they flunked civics or it wasn’t offered when they were in school.

  7. Lunargent says:

    epo – well, they say that pets look like their owners – or vice versa. Too true!

    L’Angelo…, not knowing how government works is an excuse, though a bad one, for the Trump family and some of the other civilians. But what’s up with all the career military guys who don’t seem to have a clue? That’s what I find frightening. And then people like Perry, Price, and Sessions, who are in government, and really have no excuse for not knowing. I think they do know, but encouraged by the Kleptocrat In Chief, they’re trying to see how far they can distort and disrupt it.

    Way past Deplorables; this is a Crew of Despicables.

    Bannon and Kushner must go. NOW! Kushner is the antinepotisn poster child, and bannon is just plain filth. Where is Heracles when the stables need cleaning? I have never seen such blatant, illegal goings on. And in Washington that’s quite a statement. Too bad for the entire country that all the members of the GOP are interested in is greed and getting reelected. They may wind up broke with no electorate if the don’t start putting country ahead of their damn morally bankrupt party!

  9. charles phillips says:

    The larger point here is, why did these chuckleheads have apparent access to FBI raw transcripts? How did they get those transcripts, and who authorized that?

    Also, who else is receiving them? Besides highly compartmentalized units of the FBI, CIA, NSA etc, nobody, not even trump, should have that access.

  10. Rhea, many generations ago, when these old rich right wing white guys were in school, civics was offered on the secondary level, right when their hormones started popping and they went conveniently deaf in favor of sex.

  11. Goal = destabilize the government [establishment]

    Well it feels pretty destabile to me.

    I watched a group of folks some supporters some anti-Trump folks and one commented on that he still feels Trump is right person to shake-up and change the government.

    If Trump bails, let us pray for the health and safety of Pence, lest House Speaker Paul Ryan float to the top.
