White House Staff Secretary: Sir, this is your daily briefings. First, we see that Russia is now paying for bounties on the heads of US troops in Afghanistan.

Trump: That's smart. I wish I had thought of that. Putin is a smart guy. Really smart.

WHSS: Sir, he paid members of the Taliban bounties to kill US troops.

Trump: I wonder if we could work something out and I could get a cut. Get me the Kremlin.

They'll never give up those records while he's in office.
And there won't be any records when he's not.

So what you are telling me is he is shamelessly banging kidnapped immigrant young boys while giving nuclear codes to the Russians.

Then he must be found summarily guilty. There is zero reason to stonewall this.

Here is the problem we know Trump doesn't read them, because he's too stupid and has the attention span of a gnat and even when he does he refuses to believe them, because he knows more then anyone else on the subject so it's impossible for Russia to be doing it.

Doesn't really matter.

He says he didn't know, that he didn't see it.
Well he knows now, when does he denounce it and call for and enact sanctions?

*crickets*

To be fair, he did dribble hamberder juice on it first, then use it as a napkin, so... *shrug*

Would it be worse if he;

a) saw it and ignored it;
b) didn't see it because he doesn't read the president's daily brief; or
c) didn't see it because his aides withhold negative information from him to keep him from getting mad and trying to do stupid things.

Personally, I think those are all pretty much as bad as each other.

My damn orange tabby does that, but on his own, especially if he is pissed or seeking attention. He also likes to climb on things and poke around... this all resulted in a paperlanche, a shredder pussy, and some seriously damaged tax documents.
Since I do my taxes electronically, no real big deal, but if I'm audited I'm going to have to hand this confetti over to someone and when they ask WTH, I'll have to look them in the eye and say "My cat ate it".
Great!

It's all right there in those records.

Even if there is a document marked that way with the bounty intelligence on it, it won't matter.
He'll deny it.
Fox will spin it.
The MAGAts will eat it up.
And the whole think will get swept away by scandal # 482 next week.

"TOP AIDES couldn't verify the info was correct and wasn't a plot by the Intel community to give FAKE NEWS to the President, which is me, so he (I) wasn't briefed because DEEP STATE FAKE NEWS and THE PRESIDENT NEVER SAW IT but now that he knows about it PUTIN DENIES IT STRONGLY SO WE WILL INVITE TO THE G8!"

As an American I see the only solution to a problem like this is to remove the incentive by destroying the value of Russian currency.

2. Trump permits Putin's slay for pay
3. Trump enabled the spread of a deadly pandemic in numerous documented ways

4. Trump wants to cash in on dead Americans

White House: That's top secret!

Congress: We have top secret security clearance to view it in the SCIF.

White House: It's privileged!

Congress: The Supreme Court says that it's not.

White House: We'll give it two you in two weeks.

Congress: OK.

White House: They were accidentally destroyed yesterday.

I'm sure if it wasn't shredded yesterday, it was today.

Then, when he's kicked out of office, he'll be prosecuted for not following the laws on that. And everyone else in the White House payroll as well. So we should expect 50-75 people in prison. Hopefully for 20 years for each offense, served sequentially.

Those are all bad but I think you need to break down a) a bit more.

a1) saw it and ignore it because he didn't care
a2) saw it and ignored it because he supports Putin and does not wish to upset him
a3) saw it and ignored it because he is literally Putin's puppet

a3 is treason and that is the worst.

The White House staff knew about it, and it is their job to help the President craft policy. If they fail, it is still a failure of the President. He picks his staff and runs the place.

There are laws & regulations on record keeping.  Flouting the law only works when everyone around you enables it.  There will soon come a time when Donny ain't president.
Let Moscow Mitch McConnell & Putin's biatches in the Senate go on record that they side with Russia on killing American soldiers.  In swing states, that shiat won't fly.

Jan 2021, US troops will still be in Afghanistan, so the investigations will still be relevant.
