    Trump still uses his personal cell phone despite warnings and increased call scrutiny

    President Donald Trump has continued to use his personal cell phone to make calls, despite repeated warnings from his staff that the practice could leave him vulnerable to foreign surveillance, multiple officials told CNN.

    The Democratic impeachment inquiry has resurrected concerns about the security and potential vulnerability of the President's communications. Witness testimony revealed some top officials repeatedly failed to follow protocol intended to prevent sensitive phone conversations, including those involving the President, from being intercepted by foreign intelligence services

    But but but her e-mails!

    Trump and his supporters never cared about issues related to classified information or our national security with regard to the Clinton e-mail controversy. It was all just an excuse to attack Clinton.

    And he and Rudy, who also uses his own private cell phone, talk with each other daily when Rudy is in Ukraine, like right now. Ukraine's communications are are the most thoroughly penetrated country on earth by Russia. Everything Trump tells Rudy are things he's also telling Russia. But when you think about it, that wouldn't concern Trump one bit if he's actually a Russian asset and has been from the start.

    We had the same issue with Obama, just let it die.

    Warnings and increased scrutiny are not the DOD, or DOJ telling him that he cannot use his own phone. So long as he follows the necessary steps, he can still use it.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son, and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

    Why should Trump care about Russia hearing his phone calls? After all, the entire Oval Office is probably bugged straight to Putin after Trump's giggle-fest with Sergey Lavrov and Sergey Kislyak, when he not only spilled one of Israel's most highly guarded secrets, he also told the Russians that he wasn't worried about security matters. At that point I'm sure the two Sergeys planted bugs all over the place, since the only American in the room was their good buddy, Trump, who "wasn't worried about security".

    I wasn't the one complaining about Clinton's e-mails to the point where I was suggesting she should be locked up...

    Trump was...and so were Trump's cultish followers.

    I wonder what people will find when he leaves the White House. not just the bugs, but all the transcripts and records he has been accused of hiding in classified files.

    Am I missing something? If Donald Trump and his supporters succeed in making their case against Hunter Biden, wouldn't that set a precedent that would end Trump's presidency and bring down much, if not all, of the Trump family? Are they accusing the younger Biden of anything the Trump kids aren't doing in plain sight? D.V.W., Everett, VA

    A: We're going to start with a statement that is enormously judgmental. Trying to be diplomatic and soft-peddle it would just waste everyone's time, so we're going to come right out with it: Trump, his family, his base, and much of the GOP establishment that supporters him are enormous hypocrites.

    The evidence of this is ...

    interesting.

    I like the Q/A article. With respect to the first question I think a lot of it has to do with psychology. A significant fraction of Trump's support comes with people who score high on authoritarian personality traits. For them, it's not so much about the principle of the thing. It's about people being in their rightful place...beneath them.

    Also, interwoven with that sort of psychological undercurrent, is this sort of mentality that Trump supporters have adopted that Democrats and Trump critics are not real people, real citizens, with actual rights, that they don't have any right whatsoever to participate in the same legal and political processes as they do.

    Does a dog have any right tell you that you can't screw over a subcontractor? What does an ant have to say about ethics and law and duty?
