Retired Navy Admiral Asks Trump To Revoke His Clearance, Too!:
Retired Naval Admiral William H. McRaven did not mince words with the so-called Commander in Chief.
In a new op-ed in The Washington Post, McRaven, who oversaw the Bin Laden Navy SEAL raid (yeah), told Donald Trump where he could stick his security clearance:
Former CIA director John Brennan, whose security clearance you revoked on Wednesday, is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.
Therefore, I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency.
I hope this isn’t the only person dedicated to serving our country who stands up to Donald Trump in this way, and I wouldn’t be surprised if, in the end, it takes military men and women to make sure there is a peaceful transition of power away from Trump. Who on the sane side of this question thinks that’s NOT a possibility?
The Constitution governs this country. The US Military swears an oath to the nation, not an individual president.
Time to stand up.
Documents Reveal Successful Cyberattack in California Congressional Race:
WASHINGTON — FBI agents in California and Washington, D.C., have investigated a series of cyberattacks over the past year that targeted a Democratic opponent of Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA). Rohrabacher is a 15-term incumbent who is widely seen as the most pro-Russia and pro-Putin member of Congress and is a staunch supporter of President Trump.
The hacking attempts and the FBI’s involvement are described in dozens of emails and forensic records obtained by Rolling Stone.
The target of these attacks, Dr. Hans Keirstead, a stem-cell scientist and the CEO of a biomedical research company, finished third in California’s nonpartisan “top-two” primary on June 5th, falling 125 votes short of advancing to the general election in one of the narrowest margins of any congressional primary this year. He has since endorsed Harley Rouda, the Democrat who finished in second place and will face Rohrabacher in the November election.
Shepard Smith on Fox News on August 15, 2018:
For context, the research in the dossier includes 17 memos produced by the former spy Christopher Steele.
They allege misconduct and a conspiracy between members of the Trump campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 election. Some assertions in the dossier have been confirmed. Other parts are unconfirmed. None of the dossier, to Fox News’s knowledge, has been disproven.“
