    McCabe: 'I think it's possible' Trump is a Russian asset

    (CNN)Former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe said Tuesday it is possible President Donald Trump is a Russian asset.
    McCabe: 'I think it's possible' Trump is a Russian asset


    Regardless of weather or not you like Andrew McCabe, or question his credibility as a long standing FBI Agent who has worked on Organized Crime cases as far back as the 1990s... One thing is clear. Trump, does not know how to properly attack this man. Trump is using the same "dirt" he used on McCabe back in the summer and it's clear nothing is happening on that front. It's an empty threat. The President is supposed to be one of the most powerful positions on this world, and Trump cannot even stop an FBI Agent from writing books. No one on Trump's team has even denied that no one in the Gang of 8 objected to the FBI probe into Trump. Not a single one.

    Furthermore, you have to look at the stances/actions and tweets Trump is doing.

    1. The fact that Trump just keeps believing things Russia says - over what everyone in his own administration tells him. The CIA, FBI, and various US intelligence agencies are the largest and most equipped in the world at handling this stuff (not your grandmas minions). And Donald Trump just basically shrugs and said he believes Putin instead - because... he seemed like a nice guy? That is akin to treason and almost definitely a calculated lie.

    2. He pulled out of the INF treaty, which allows Putin to create missiles that can threaten Europe with impunity, whereas before, there would be sanctions and severe penalties for doing so. The US already has all the weaponry that the INF would ban the development of, so this offers us literally nothing, while allowing Russia to develop powerful new weapons to challenge our allies. No adequate explanation for this was ever provided to the American people.

    3. He advanced a withdrawal from Syria - against all counsel of all relevant experts (except Rand Paul) - to Russia's delight. No adequate explanation for this was ever provided to the American people.

    4. He has conducted FIVE completely private meetings and conferences with Putin, and has gone to great lengths to prevent literally anyone, even people in his administration, from learning what was discussed. No explanation for this was ever provided to the American people.

    5. He has lied countless times about having business interests in Russia, which have been clearly and undeniably proven false in extremely public ways. No explanation for this was ever provided to the American people

    6. Not to mention his repeated threats to pull out of NATO which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    7. Insults leaders that seem to favor democracy and more socialist policies over fascists, dictatorships, and nationalism.

    Remember, on top of pursuing the agenda of potentially multiple hostile foreign nations (Saudi Arabia + Russia), and reversing their sanctions so that their leaders can do business quite easier without punishment, he also committed numerous acts of campaign finance violation, stood behind and refused to condemn nazis and white supremacists, stood behind Saudi Arabia as they brutally assassinated an American journalist and refused to listen to US intelligence agencies about that case too, publicly attacked private citizens and the media, condemned his own agents and agencies for legally investigating him, told nearly ten thousand lies about things ranging from serious to extremely mundane, appointed his own family members to positions far above their capacity (breaking many ethics laws and vetting procedures to do so and get them clearance).

    The last President was impeached, by Republicans, for one - one - count of perjury, about a meaningless sexual exploit. WTF is he still doing as President and WTF are you still doing defending this crap?????? Crap you wouldn't take from everyone in DC combined.

    When this is all over, nobody will admit to ever having supported it. -- David Frum

    Trump does the things that Trump supporters hate and claim not to support, but they don't realize Trump and his people are the ones doing them.

    It’s stunning. He has the Senate Republicans kowtowed—so Trump knows he can’t be removed from office. It appears they are afraid of him. Sad.

    His approval ratings, according to FiveThirtyEight, are the worst of all modern presidents. Even worse than Gerald Ford!! Wow, now that is bad. Check it out (note the area between the curves—that’s the difference in disapproval):

    The democratic way to rid ourselves of Rump is to get out and vote next year. Nothing would give me greater pleasure then to see the electorate give this man the finger in a landslide loss.

    I like your thinking. I don’t want to see an impeachment—what a circus that would be! It will be a fascinating campaign. I am worried that we may be faced with a real emergency like another 9/11, God forbid. Then we have this guy who doesn’t listen to experts and knowledgeable advisors—he just goes with his feelings and shoots from the hip. It’s really frightening to me!

    That all rant adds up to confirming the Democratic Party is the party war and death. There's no war, anywhere, the Democratic Party doesn't want for all the money and power it brings to the Deep State and the super rich.

    The Senate spent millions, two years and about 200 interviews they uncovered no direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to both Democrats and Republicans on the committee.

    Re: McCabe: 'I think it's possible' Trump is a Russian asset

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe "was fired in total disgrace from the FBI because he lied to investigators on multiple occasions, including under oath. His selfish and destructive agenda drove him to open a completely baseless investigation into the President. His actions were so shameful that he was referred to federal prosecutors. Andrew McCabe has no credibility and is an embarrassment to the men and women of the FBI and our great country.
