This is deeply troubling.

The CIA is not good at sharing as it is. This is normal ops for them
 
2017-08-25 10:11:04 AM  
Now why would the team investigating Trump worry about reporting to someone who's sworn fealty to Trump?

I don't really care if they tell Trump, so long as everyone else knows, too.  Maybe then he'll just upload more self-incriminating documents to the world.

It's serious intimidation--absolutely inappropriate and would have such a chilling effect on the agents who theoretically are reporting to the Justice Department. You would think that someone like Pompeo with his legal and legislative background would be highly averse to even an appearance of obstruction. But...makes you wonder how many in the GOP are completely pwned by the Kremlin. 

Disgusting.

And Pompeo was just about the best Kansas had to offer.  He was the moldy apple in the Kansas GOP buffet of raw sewage.

Point of order: The CIA does not report to the Justice Department.  They report to the DNI, Dan Coats.

I keep wondering if there will ever be payback on the Russians for doing this shiat to us. But, no. I don't think so.
 
2017-08-25 06:23:33 PM  
Let's see. Putin gives out individual stories to various agents who pass their particular story to a single suspected CIA cooperative. Pompeo reads the CIA reports then passes the information back to Putin through channels.

CIA agents and cooperatives buh-bye. The Russian pressure is off again. Off.

Yeah, it's not that they've infiltrated the GOP so thoroughly, and therefore government. It's also that there is no interest by anybody to do resist it. I know Mueller's sort of doing something, but I expect it to get binned once he's done and soft-pedaled. I had a fantasy that old CIA agents or otherwise would have some patriotic pride and do something back, but it's all dead corruption everywhere. This country just wants to die.

a queef,  from a 17 year old Siberian whore who sold herself for cheap knock-off levis that her family can self-off to the locals to supply food for a week. Why because, the family is to drunk of vodka or stoned off of Krokodil.

Yeah, pardon me, but since when do minor regional officials in America, who are visiting places as tourists, seek audiences with one of our major national rivals' chief of foreign affairs? Yeah... they don't.

And since when the bloody hell does Mr. Lavrov grant personal audiences to American tourists who have absolutely no conceivable reason to offer him that they should? To say nothing of the impropriety of an American LEO asking for such a meeting outside of normal channels in the first place...

/The GOP is absolutely, positively rotted through and through

What penetration? "Penetration" implies that they have to sneak in and delicately try to steal information without being caught. When they want secrets they literally just tell him to meet them alone in the oval office, which he does regardless of the optics, and then publicize pictures of it afterward to rub salt in the IC's wounds.

static2.businessinsider.com Left: "Sergei is nice! He told me I'm so smart! I like Sergei! And cake!"
Right: "I cannot believe this is actually happening... all those decades of trying and now their own president literally hands us the secrets directly... Okay just keep a straight face..."

Wait, what?  Mike Pompeo? Highly averse to even an appearance of obstruction? Tea Party darling, Mike Pompeo?

Are you sure you aren't mixing him up with someone else?

The agents under him obviously don't trust him or this wouldn't have been passed to the press. Which is kind of REALLY NOT GOOD for the CIA/America.

there is no proof. James Clapper and Diane Feinstein and many others have said so, some of whom are strong critics of Trump but agree there is zero proof of Russian collusion or anything else. the tinfoil hat #resist crowd have built this Trump-Russia thing to such a fever pitch that they sincerely believe impeachment is imminent. it's freaking bizarre, I've never seen anything like it and I've seen some crazy Reagan hate and some crazy Bush hate squared. this current hysteria is a whole other dimension of crazy.

>The most prolific of the conspiracy-mongers tend to focus on the Russia scandal, weaving a narrative so sensationalistic and complex that it could pass for a Netflix political drama. Theirs is a world where it is acceptable to allege that hundreds of American politicians, journalists, and government officials are actually secret Russian agents; that Andrew Breitbart was murdered by Vladimir Putin; that the Kremlin has "kompromat" on everyone, and oh-by-the-way a presidency-ending sex tape is going to drop any day now.

to repeat what I've said before: it was the Democratic administrations of FDR and to a lesser extent Truman that were riddled with Russian spies, a truth that was denied by many on the political left for decades until the US Venona codebreaking files were declassified and the USSR collapsed and released their files, all of which confirmed that numerous government officials were Soviet agents.

this Trump-Russia hysteria is another example of the American left's tendency towards projection. The KKK was the paramilitary arm of the Democrat party to intimidate blacks and reconstructionists and lynchings took place in counties dominated by Democrats, but somehow the GOP is full of racists. The longest-serving Democrat president in the nation's history had dozens of Russian spies in his administration, but somehow the GOP is pwned by Russia despite a complete lack of evidence. Antifa thugs (the new KKK) are using violence and intimidation as tools of the left including a leftist professor and a leftist school teacher both arrested on various criminal charges, but the GOP is somehow full of violence and hate.

Etc etc etc. it gets really tedious after a while.

leftists are more prone to crime. it's a simple fact.

>Political ideology represents an imperfect yet important indicator of a host of personality traits and cognitive preferences. These preferences, in turn, seemingly propel liberals and conservatives towards divergent life-course experiences. Criminal behavior represents one particular domain of conduct where differences rooted in political ideology may exist. Using a national dataset, we test whether and to what extent political ideology is predictive of self-reported criminal behavior. Our results show that self-identified political ideology is monotonically related to criminal conduct cross-sectionally and prospectively and that liberals self-report more criminal conduct than do conservatives. We discuss potential causal mechanisms relating political ideology to individual conduct.
