It's amazing to me that the leak garners more outrage than the possibly treasonous activity.

The republicans are all about appearances and optics.  They don't care that Trump is crooked or corrupt, they care that it was made public and makes them look bad.

Hmm. You know, you never see them both in the same place at the same time, do you?

"Your calling those treasonous acts 'treason' means you're the real treasoner!"

Treason isn't a crime - leaks about treason are the real crimes.

With classic KGB whaddaboutism like that spouting from Trey Goudy's mouth like that I think a review of his foreign connections is in order.

Wow, someone tried that?

They're not worried about crimes - just disloyalty. They must root out and destroy traitors to Lord Dampnut. That's why they're installing informants in government agencies. That's why they're creating a citizen informant network among militia groups.

Disloyalty, after all, is simply non-compliance, and we're being trained to comply.

Before he headed up the Benghazi shiat / to lead up to it.  "Finally, a former prosecutor that's well respected who will run this critical investigation in a competent and fair manner."

No need - that moron is 100% home-grown sandlapper asshole. He's too damned stupid to be useful to a foreign power. He's just ambitious enough for others in this government to use, though, which is why Issa stepped back and Gowdy stepped forward.

I was expecting they'd at least go with "hey, Russkies, screwing with foreign democracies is our schtick, so butt out!"  but the GOP doesn't really know how to play for the lulz.

My theory is that Sally Yates brought the transcript to the White House after Pence lied on national television and someone in the administration took it upon themselves to preemptively throw Flynn under the bus by leaking to the press in order to better their standing with Trump.

Flynn was the one Trump went to at 3am with stupid economic questions, so I'm sure that must have rubbed some of his sycophants the wrong way.

Stopped just short of her, but he went for 7 former officials including Obama.

I don't watch shiat like this often, but this guy stood out as someone I wouldn't want to be around.  He seems like he'd run over your dog if stopping meant he'd be late to work, then send you the bill for a new fender.  I think he kept pausing before trying to accuse the former president of a felony cause he was edging.

Comey and Rogers spoke about the gravity of the actual leaking. I think the whistle-blower's are gonna get good and farked.

Depending on how all of this concludes, the leakers may have done a noble deed, but I don't see them being shown mercy if they are identified.

Oh HELL NO son~!  At least Ultraman's heroic!

Trey Gowdy couldn't be heroic even if I imbued him with super-solider serum.
 
2017-03-20 04:21:48 PM  
Gowdy was full of it at the end. No one is saying we should put people in prison, or throw Trump out of office, on the basis of a newspaper article. What people want is an investigation. What he'd like is "oh, one newspaper article with anonymous sources? Let's declare it a non-issue and never speak of it again."

Two things would fill me with joy. One, it wasn't classified at all and that's why Comey is saying "I never said it was classified" and two, it turns out it was a Trump person who leaked it to explain why away why they were dumping him.

I wish that one of the D's on the committee had asked a follow up of: "Would your answer about the serious nature of a leak about investigations, also apply to members of a congressional committee leaking information about an email server belonging to a former Secretary of State? And do you intend to investigate those leaks as well?"

More like "A newspaper article with anonymous sources?  Charge Obama and his underlings with giving out classified information.  Charge the reporter with distributing it, too."
