    During an interview with Tucker Carlson, and in an effort to trash President Obama, he said

    “I just want people to know, the CIA was hacked, and a lot of things taken — that was during the Obama years, That was not during us. That was during the Obama situation. Mike Pompeo is there now doing a fantastic job.”

    https://www.rawstory.com/2017/03/trump-leaked-classified-cia-intel-to-tucker-carlson-on-live-tv-ranking-house-intel-member/

    The information that the CIA was hacked, if true, would be classified information.

    Now, you might say that the President can declassify information. But normally a President would do it in thoughtful manner, and only after consulting with those that might be affected. Doing it this way, just to attack his predecessor, is very relevant to anybody who might be accumulating evidence about Trump's abuse of power.

    If he's "repeating what he heard" from...somewhere...it's not classified information...it;s just a Blowhard in the White House

    If he's repeating what he was told in an intel briefing that's another matter. He CAN declassify information but that requires a careful studied intentional release.

    Which do you think this was?

    I think we need to start working now on a Trump memorial. It will be a bottomless hole in the ground. The depth of the hole required gets deeper with each day of this corrupt and inept regime.

    I am so embarrassed by this so-called president, thinking of how the rest of the world must think looking at what has become of the U.S.
    Rest of the world to America - "So, you have an election, the people vote, but the loser gets declared the winner?????"
    "You have an empty celebrity in charge of the strongest military in the world?"

    We have a President who doesn't know the difference between wire-tapping and other surveillance. The pervert in office is, quite possibly, the dumbest person ever elected to the office.

    And I didn't have a hand in it. I'm glad of at least that much. I wavered because of his pro-nationalist sentiment, but no one can honestly say "because of AmericanNationalist" we have Trump. Which was exactly my plan. I wanted to support Nationalism while steering clear of this failure for my own career. Mission accomplished.

    You really only care about Liberal ideology alone don't you?

    You want to dig a bottomless hole?

    Dig one for the lost money hopes, dreams, & aspirations the ACA has turned out.

    Pfft.

    Lol...Your so-called career can be run into the ground by trump's misadventures as easily as any other.
    His crap policies could hurt our future in the sciences for a generation and trash the economic potential of the country.
    Notice that his first order of business was scrapping the minimum tax law that forced him to pay taxes on his income.

    Yes. After having spent nearly a week myself pouring over Vault 7 on Wiki ... and having MSM report extensively on the CIA's launching an internal investigations, both for the source of the thefts, and leaks ... Trump revealed what exactly? Classified? Waiting for Maxine Waters to claim it's impeachable ... :alcoholic:

    It is indeed a worry. Whatever happened to the respect and admiration in which America was once held? Instead a mildly amusing but ultimately potentially dangerous man was elected. And the world laughs while glued to the tv, waiting for the next scandal to emerge from the White House.

    How about the 'hopes and dreams' of the 24 million left uninsured as a result of the policies Trump promised would have everyone insured? How do you think they feel now that there is uncertainty in their future? Well?

    I see a serious problem in America.. They can't read or understand citizenship law. They think Trump is intelligent and they believe ever crackpot conspiracy that comes along.

    If we accept your assertion, "dumbest ever elected" how does that reflect upon Hillary, and Debbie? What does it say about Sanders and the millions who supported him? Democrats fit to lead? I think not.

    We're seeing the rise of populism everywhere, and it's a worrying trend. Holland just dodged a far-right, xenophobic bullet in their latest election. Trump won't last; there's a limit to how many self-inflicted scandals he can invent to distract his idiot fan club from the previous scandal. One day even they might catch on...

    The lesser of two dumb evils is still a dumb evil. And you elected a beauty.

    The extremist alt right now have their "wet dream" candidate infesting the Oval office and he is doing exactly what they would be doing if they, themselves were in that situation.

    America has always been a nation that swings to extremes IMO. It goes too far right then too far left and then back to being too far right. Granted it has never been this far to the extreme right during my lifetime and I am anticipating that this is going to be a bumpy ride before the pendulum swings back again.

    The start of that swing has already begun and the governor's races in November should be a better indicator for 2018. If the subprime auto loan bubble bursts and the nation is plunged into recession before 2018 the party in power will be punished. How severely remains to be seen but Dems are energized and not prepared to sit back and allow the extremist alt right run this nation into the ground.

    The list of offenses for which Trump can be impeached is growing and I don't see him completing his term. Given that he won't have the intelligence to step down he might end up being the first POTUS to actually be removed from office. That is speculation but if it did happen it would send out a clear warning to both parties to keep their extremist factions on the fringes where they belong and not allow them to gain any power since it is all too obvious that they abuse it.

    Yes, well perhaps this will encourage the 10's of millions of citizens, eligible to vote, to get off their behinds, AND vote. Demand term limits. Demand transparency. Demand accountability. The fact is, it shouldn't matter who occupies the oval office. Make your representatives represent. Stop lobbyists, and special interests who have "hacked" every election we've ever held.

    If I'm elected as House of Rep, I will pen legislation to create a true National health care plan that will cover those 24 million back as well as respect the right to make choices that we Americans value.

    Given the legitimacy of this thread, I'd guess you already do regret it.
    Progressivism was shot down in Nov. And it was a beautiful sight. Maybe the left could learn something from it..........

    You obviously prefer regressivism.

    We are building up troops in Syria and carried out 45 airstrikes in Yemen since January.. Trump is paying for it with cuts to the poor.

    Do you believe Trump? I think he will let healthcare die on the vine.
