Americans should have a profound appreciation for the double standard at work with Trump and I am not just talking women.
He denies reports by the FBI about compromised status, while embracing Director Comey's irreverent rantings about Secretary Hillary Clinton. Trump runs a populist campaign based in anti-establishment values and wins; but; now as verbalized his nominations and policies are anything but anti-establishment.
Donald Trump is a national security issue. His increased irreverence for USA law only proves his administration is anything but trustworthy.
Dylann Roof was sentenced to death in Charleston yesterday. (click here) What do the White Supremacists in the Trump White House have to say regarding this sentence?
Donald Trump should not be denying Russia is attempting to force certain performances by the Trump White House, but, should be the best informant the CIA and FBI have.
Compliance with USA national security is not a political witch hunt. The problems Trumps 24/7 campaigning will bring to USA national security cannot be understated. Trump should be stating any and all information pertinent to national security in his possession as being made available to the CIA and FBI.
This issue is a two sided sword. One edge states Russia has an advantage and the other edge provides a "Hoover-esque" power within the intelligence agencies. Congress is the security within the country. What the intelligence agencies knows the USA Congress should know as well to the point there is no leverage of power over the Executive Branch.
I find Comey's outspoken critique that caused Hillary Clinton her election loss curious and Hoover-like. Comey exercised power over a presidential candidate. That is even more of a concern to me because of the compromised status of 'The Vote' in this past election.
