(NBC News)   I mean seriously, can this guy be trusted with top-security information when he's out of office? He ignores it now so what's he going to do with it then? Sell it?   (nbcnews.com) divider line

No, he can't be trusted. He has proven that over and over again. Also he has those huge loans coming due in a matter of months and lawyers to pay.
Our only saving grace may be that he isn't very bright and doesn't pay attention.

Simple solution: Feed him false information and see where it turns up.
 
2020-11-27 5:32:49 PM  
Will he even want the briefings?
 
2020-11-27 5:46:30 PM  
He's like a one person telephone game that went 12 rounds.

Anything that goes in one ear will come out purple monkey dishwasher 10 minutes later.

Good luck getting any actionable information out of that mush melon.

This is pretty much how I've viewed Trump's role over four years. Could he be a danger? Of course. Do I think he's actually paid attention enough to do so? Probably not.

I bet that's been discussed already at hush-hush meetings.

Russians speaking in Russian: Can you believe what an idiot this guy is? We can get anything we want from him

I suspect that Donnie will get all sorts of counter-intel, and it will be fairly obvious in a few months that his "tips" aren't just garbage, but dangerous. I'm sure it will help cement some great friendships.

It would not surprise me if some in the intel community haven't already done it. At this point, I'm not sure there is anything that would surprise me about this shiatshow.

Does being an inmate automatically revoke your security clearance?

I thought the investigation concluded that the Trump crowd were too naïve, stupid, and incompetent to commit treason.
 
2020-11-27 7:12:44 PM  
He'll probably do nothing.

He doesn't know any secrets because he never paid attention close enough and he has a terrible memory. He never read any briefings, he never listened to any of his advisors, on the odd occasion where he did have an intelligence meeting he spent the whole time berating them and talking over them. They could barely get through a single page of intel in a 2 hour briefing before he got bored and frustrated and just up and left. He never did his farking job to any level of adequacy or competence.

He has neither the curiosity nor patience to want to learn any intelligence secrets, nor does he possess the memory to retain them. Whatever he sells to foreign adversaries would probably be useless and obsolete. They'd have to sift through hours of him babbling about himself in order to get to the one or two nuggets of genuine intelligence that they probably already knew anyway.

He's a burned asset and completely unreliable. Who would trust anything he says?
 
2020-11-27 7:18:43 PM  
He's not selling it now?
 
2020-11-27 7:43:07 PM  
Ya know, I think I'd just let him talk to anyone. He'll just brag about stuff that isn't true and spread misinformation like normal.

PUTIN: Where are the nuclear silos?

TRUMP: I was leading a meeting with the Joint Chiefs very early in my administration, so early in my administration you wouldn't believe it. No one's ever heard of a President taking meetings so early in an administration. And I said "You know what? We should relocate the nukes to Mar-a-Lago and Doral. Bury them under the tee boxes.  I'll only charge cost plus 50%. Great deal for the taxpayers." And they were like "Sir. That's brilliant. No one will suspect a thing. You truly are smarter than the generals, sir."  Then one of them actually teared up. Big, tough military guy, and yet he was tearing up because of the beauty of the plan.

PUTIN: That's quite a story, Mr. Trump.

TRUMP: Right after that, I took a meeting with Treasury. I said "You know what? I think we should be storing the Fort Knox gold at 666 Park Avenue. You know how good the Jews are with gold . . ."

I mean, do you really think Biden is going to send someone to his cell every day to give them to him?

...and then try him for treason.

Diagonal: Simple solution: Feed him false information and see where it turns up.


That was my first thought.

OTOH the possibility exists that he won't even be a little bit interested in getting briefed.
 
2020-11-27 9:39:07 PM  
So you just take it at face value, without question, that what the bosses call "top secret" actually needs to be classified as such because Trump's a dipshiat?

Really?

The stockpiling of too many secrets renders the nation less secure, not more, because it forces us to make decisions based on poor-quality information. In our attempts to blind our adversaries...we end up blinding ourselves. The information blackout also hinders the public's ability to hold the secret-keepers accountable for what they do. Kept too close to the vault, important secrets don't get properly vetted, which results in policy being sent off course by "incorrect" secrets.

Pat Moynihan's been dead for almost 20 years and he's STILL way ahead of everybody else.

Yup. Canary trap. Then nail him for it.
 
2020-11-27 9:49:37 PM  
The tradition is usually in regards to bringing the ex president up to speed on something they were intimately involved in to get further input on it or to bring them up to speed on something they started.

Trump really doesn't fit into those categories.  He lackeys do everything for him and he delegates almost everything.

So there's no need to do it.
 
2020-11-27 9:49:42 PM  
Considering he hates intelligence he doesn't like. That doesn't agree with his world view and those responsible for his brief have been told for 4 years to leave certain important real intelligence out, I doubt he gets the "true day to day intelligence". You can believe Biden is getting it though.  I find it ironic that, it's just as likely those in intelligence will likely give him "disinformation" for 2 months and when it ends up in Russia or NK or Syria, charge him with Treason.
 
2020-11-27 9:50:40 PM  
What's to prevent jagoffs like Nunes from passing it to him? Again.  This needs to be like an anti-rico/mob strategy where we take all the low level jagoffs off the board and work our way to the top so he's completely cut off.

lindalouwho: Diagonal: Simple solution: Feed him false information and see where it turns up.

Of course he's not interested in the slightest, but $400 million debts aren't going to just pay themselves, and it's not like he can hold a bake sale to refinance trump tower.

No, he hands the briefing documents over to Javanka, and *they* sell them.

Kushner is the dangerous one. Assume that he knows the secrets instead of the microcephalic moron-in-chief.

On Twitter.
I mean, it's basically what happens now.

He has been skipping the reports and they were all dumbed down for him anyway and he seems to have some form of dementia.

Too incompetent to INTENTIONALLY commit treason.
 
2020-11-27 9:53:56 PM  
Given that Trump's* entire life is acting as a two-dollar whore, I'm pretty sure he's sold anything of value already, and got a very sad, sad deal on it.

vudukungfu: He knows too much.

I wish not long after hes out, that he would just disappear. Like one day he's tweeting hate bullshiat and the next day, hes gone. Like no one knows where he is, not even melania, his kids, his lawyers, putin, nobody. And theres no trace of a kidnapping. And they never find his corpse.

Like Trump becomes 2021's Hoffa and is never seen or heard from again.
 
2020-11-27 9:55:33 PM  
It's almost as if he's been completely unsuited for office all along.

Who would want to buy it?  He gets his daily briefings in puppet show form, and he gets most of his "facts" about the world from people like Alex Jones.

There was a simple solution: any president who was removed as result of impeachment no longer gets intelligence briefings.

But unfortunately, an impeachment trial required the GOP to choose between America and Trump.

italie: I mean, do you really think Biden is going to send someone to his cell every day to give them to him?


They should. Make the fatso work. Demand that he offer his opinion and decision. Don't act on any of that, of course: I mean, who would be crazy to act on anything he says. But make him say things and force him to make decisions. Put them on video and play it back. Maybe we'll have Sarah Cooper do some lip-synching.

But most importantly is to bother him to no end.

So when the question arises of "national security" in the hands of a possibly compromised POTUS let's attack the concept of "secrets" as though that's even an option here.

What a shiatty redirection.

Nope. Want his corpse out in the town square. Skin flayed to amply demonstrate what happens to people who betray a nation.

If someone tries to keep him from getting them he certainly will.

Uranus Megahertz: Will he even want the briefings?


Once the Traitor is expelled from the office, he no longer has the power to demand so much as a diet coke.

If he wants the briefings, he can have them the same as real Presidents get them: a novella worth of single-spaced ten point font.

Not ONLY is he too stupid to read college-level writing, he's a psychopathic narcissist who wouldn't be able to pay attention to the first paragraph because it won't mention him. Not only that, he's basically blind close-up so he wouldn't be able to read it anyway.
 
2020-11-27 10:02:11 PM  
Not sure his info is all that credible on a global buyer's market - he hasn't exactly displayed a keen grasp of intel.

I'd worry more about what the rest of the gang passes along in secret.
 
2020-11-27 10:03:13 PM  
I, for one, will feel much safer so long as Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have top secret clearance. They're the Gold Standard.
