So lemmie get this straight, there were in person intelligence briefings, but they sometimes included information about Putin interfering in the election, some Dems warned people, John Ratcliffe is now throttling the briefings, Rubio dunks on the Dems for warning Americans about danger. Dems make a valid point about the scale of Russian attacks (and I've been seeing them on mostly nonpolitical parts of the internet this year).

The in person briefings are being switched to printouts. And not on something reasonable like a pancake covered in syrup which is difficult to copy without ruining office equipment, no, they'll be using paper. Somehow that will make the info less likely to spread, surejan.

We really need to stop giving these wreckless idiots a pat on the back every time they say something that actually isn't completely stupid and insane.  It reminds me of that old Chris Rock bit:  "I'm a good father.   You're farking supposed to be!"

Interesting to note the first two people who held that position were rather frantic to talk about how voter fraud was the end of the republic and they'd drop a report REAAAL SOOON until they couldn't turn up bupkis.

Right along the fake birth certificate evidence bomb.

Oh. And what documentable evidence did exist involved Republicans and Russia, and didn't involve Hillary.

Now it's "Don't ask me no questions, and I won't tell you no lies."

Democrats and others have claimed Evanina and the Trump administration are pushing a false equivalency because they say that neither China nor Iran is attempting to undermine the 2020 election like Russia is.
"The statement gives a false sense of equivalence to the actions of foreign adversaries by listing three countries of unequal intent, motivation and capability together," Democratic leaders said.

Rubio said that Evanina's "reward" for the report "was to be smeared in vile and personal terms in a letter signed by Democratic leaders of Congress."

No, it is signs of fealty from the little biatch...

Rubio in his statement said that members of Congress "have a legal obligation to not divulge classified information" and that in his time as chairman he has "witnessed firsthand how this delicate balance has been destroyed."

"Divulging access to classified information in order to employ it as a political weapon is not only an abuse, it is a serious federal crime with potentially severe consequences on our national security," Rubio said.

He added that "this grotesque criminal misconduct does not release the intelligence community from fulfilling its legal requirements to respond to Congressional oversight committees and to keep members of Congress fully informed of relevant information on a timely basis."


Sucking turtle shell and blowing smoke, that's all this is.

It's a hedge.

As long as Trump's in power, Rubio won't do anything meaningful to stop him. But if/when the whole Repub establishment crashes and burns, many of the clowns are gonna try to convince everyone that they were "one of the good ones" because they said that one thing that one time.

Subby read a different article than the one I saw. The one I read was just Rubio biatching about democrats, as he does. He may have incidentally mentioned that the DNI decision was possibly bad, but clearly it's the democrats' fault for politicizing stuff and like such as. The signs of intelligence turned out to just be background noise.
 
2020-08-30 8:26:21 PM  
So Rubio is saying "Look!  Intelligence officials won't even talk to congress because congress-persons from the Democrat party are leaking all the classified information."

How is Rubio not just being the usual party hack that he's always been?
 
2020-08-30 8:32:30 PM  
Evanina faced criticism from congressional Democrats because his report also noted that China prefers that Trump not win reelection and that Iran is engaging in efforts to undermine Trump and U.S. institutions.

Sorry, GOP. You had a chance to stop this back in 2017 but you chose not to. Now it's open season on American democracy and everyone's going to stick their fingers in the pie.

Canada and NATO allies respect democracy too much to do any such thing, but every dictatorship around the world is now going balls deep into American politics, farking with your electoral system and your gullible electorate, since you have given your complicit consent that it's alright.

You reap what you sow.

I'll give subby credit for not slapping a "Hero" tag on it like we see all the time in similar situations.  "Strange" does indeed apply.

Ah little Marco. Let me go over some facts for ya.

1. Remember when you liked on your .GOV homepage about your parents fleeing Castro to come to the US as exiles and refugees?  Then it was found out they came 2 years before Castro was in power.

https://www.politifact.com/factchecks​/​2011/oct/21/marco-rubio/sen-marco-rubi​o-said-his-parents-came-america-foll/

2. Remember when you were a kid and you lived with your sister and brother in law and he was one of the largest drug dealers in Miami.  You know, his partner, was the ex drug dealer on the Joe Exotic series.  The one you claimed that no one in your family knew he dealt drugs when he was the largest drug dealer in Miami.

3. Remember when your campaign paid your nephews 130k as "consultants" and you forgot to mention that when your brother in law needed someone to vouch for him to get a real estate license for failed to mention he was your farking brother in law.

https://www.vox.com/2015/12/31/106952​7​4/marco-rubio-orlando-cicilia-real-est​ate

There was also that time you got arrested in rest area that was known for young gay twinks cruising that you got swept under the rug.


Now whilst I have never gone cruising in public park shiatters(now that there is anything wrong with that) I did however date the youngest sister of a guy who worked for Pablo Escobar. And guess what I knew it, everyone in town knew it, and I did not have to live in the farking house with him to figure it out.

I don't know what it is, but this idiot is working an angle here. I can tell, because his name is Marco Rubio.  If I wanted to spend the time, I could probably figure it out but I only have so many hours a week I am willing to spend reverse engineering GOP "3D Chess". There is no percentage in it - by the time you've figured one out, they're down the road with two or three new Constitutional crises, war crimes, rhetorical abominations, street level mafioso rackets or treasonous acts.

CSB time.

So I was living in Colombia and my father and I were in the grocery store.  And this gorgeous girl walked by and smiled at me.

My dad and I ended up in the line behind her at the register.  At this time in Colombia(2000) there were no built in scales at the register to weigh fruits and veggies, and you had to go to some old lady in the corner to weigh the fruit.

The cashier gave her a ration of shiat cause she had a giant papaya that did not have a price on it and told her to leave it or get out of line.

So I walked over grabbed the papaya kissed this strange gal on the cheek and said "Hi Honey, sorry I am late, you keep checking out, I will get the papaya weighed."  She kissed me back on my cheek and said "Great!"

So I got the papaya weighed bagged up all the groceries in a basket grabbed her hand and walked out the store.

As I am loading her into a cab she says "I guess this means you want my number?"

From that moment on we were together for 2 years.  But on my third date with her my father said "You know who her brother is right?"

Her brother was a champion cyclist who became friends with Escobar who would put coke in his bikes when he traveled all over the world.  So he went to ride in the Tour De France and a customs guy noticed that all 26 of his bikes weighed 80 lbs.  They normally weigh 15.

So he got caught. Did five years in prison in Colombia, kept his mouth shut, and when he got out(Pablo was gone at this point) but he still had connections.

Super nice dude though.  He got out out of the biz and took his money and owns a couple of electronic stores.

My father causes a ration of shiat between us because he felt that me dating her would besmirch his name and I allowed it to cause us all kinda issues and we broke up.

I am married now and love my wife to bits but I can say if I would have told bio dad to fark off I would still be with her.  We were too peas in a pod.
