Trump drove them mad

The Washington Post's Fake News about President Trump giving state secrets to Russians has liberals running around like their hair is on fire.



Pass the popcorn.

From Lawfare:
Bombshell: Initial Thoughts on the Washington Post’s Game-Changing Story
This is by a Harvard law professor, by the way:
First, this is not a question of “leaking classified information” or breaking a criminal law. Let’s dispense with one easy rabbit hole that a lot of people are likely to go down this evening: the President did not “leak” classified information in violation of law. He is allowed to do what he did. If anyone other than the President disclosed codeword intelligence to the Russians in such fashion, he’d likely be facing a long prison term. But Nixon’s infamous comment that “when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal” is actually true about some things. Classified information is one of them. The nature of the system is that the President gets to disclose what he wants.
Then what is it?
Second, this is not a garden variety breach, and outrage over it is not partisan hypocrisy about protecting classified information.
Wait, I am just confused. Harvard law professor just told me the president can leak like a sieve without breaking a law. Heck, Truman told Stalin we had The Bomb. Of course, Stalin already knew that.

So what is this?
To the extent foreign partners were already concerned, this episode seems to confirm their worst fears.
So now we are alarmed about foreign fears, even though the Left has ginned up fears among our allies about Trump for the past two years.
Third, it is important to understand the nature of sources and methods information in order to fully understand the gravity of the breach.
No, it is not.

We have to determine first if there was a breach.

One story by an anti-Trump newspaper does not a security breach make.

And on and on. The Harvard law professor wrote a lot of words, but cited very little law and no evidence, unless one considers the crack staff at the Washington Post to be expert witnesses in international espionage. Hell, they told us in December that Russians hacked an electric utility in Vermont that wasn't even on the grid.

The only law the Harvard law professor cited actually exonerates Trump from any charge of leaking classified information because a president can divulge whatever he wants.

What we have is liberal outrage seeking something outrageous. The piece ended: "Bottom line: It matters who we have running the most powerful institution in the world."

Yes it does, which is why Americans elected Trump president and not some sleazy woman who put classified information on an unsecured private server and pressured foreign countries to pony up donations to her "charity."

My quick take? The hair-on-fire liberals will yell at our honorable, constitutionally elected president about some other false charge by Friday because this false charge failed. Just like the Comey thing.


On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

  1. It's going to be a long eight years. The Left is going down in flames and the only way they can regain any clout is to gin up ridiculous charges in hopes of squeezing some protest/riot funding from Nazi collaborator George Soros and to try to frighten the Low Information Voters. Sad! But the schadenfreude is wonderful! - Elric

  3. Don... PERFECT rejoinder you made. Should be talking point far and wide.

    If THIS incident concerns you about the abilities of a President to know the gravity of secrets and sources... then how in the world was Hillary even a candidate? She, in action, not only in word, fundamentally violated trust in her term at State with her server and policies with her minions AND her blatant pay-for-access scheme with her foundation.

    We're witnessing level 11 meltdown in rationale thinking regarding all things Trump. I think it hurts them worse than him.. ie, just look at the campaign. It's gonna get worse... for them! :)

  7. Harvard law,so what. My brother went to both Harvard and Harvard Law. In the 80s and 90s it began hiring PC twits, a disease from which it never recovered and because of which he refused to give them money as an alumnus. Many of its graduates are now trading on its former presitge to get jobs or to pontificate like this pompous and flatulent clown who has eagerly swallowed hearsay as evidence while denying that of the eyewitness McMasters, who he in fact has smeared as a clever liar. Bezos should be ashamed of his turd posse but I guess swimming daily in the green ink of 90 billion notes has washed the natural blush right out of him.

  8. Why are administration officials still talking to reporters about things that go on behind closed doors at the WH? It is those leaks that pose the greatest threat to national security by undermining the relationships between the US and its partners in the war against the terrorists. Down the road, stories like this one could lead to the deaths of American citizens at the hands of the terrorists.

  9. Let them scream.

    Every time they're exposed, it just means fewer people believe them next time.
