Yes, this administration is still running like a well oiled machine.

Trump is too crazy for even John Bolton.  Let that sink in....

 

Bolton will now travel the same well worn path, as many others before him:

Want a Trump Administration job
Donate to Trump, flatter him, suck up for job
Work for Trump, sing the Lord's praises, salute a cardboard Trump
Realize (shortly afterwards) that Trump is a narcissist, unstable, childish, lying, disloyal scumbag
Attempt to actually tell truth about anything, at all (which means contradicting Trump)
Get insulted and belittled by Trump - privately, publicly or both
Quit - if you have any common sense or guts
Fired by the Trump - if you lack the brain or stones to quit
Return to the real world - tell the truth about the Trump

Wash, rinse and repeat.....

Mixed feelings about this.  Bolton never saw a brown person he didn't want to bomb, so keeping him the hell away from the government is a sound move.

...and hiring him?   Trump will on on NSA #4...so far.

Is this impeachable?
 

Quote

 

New reporting this week that the US was compelled to extract a top-secret intelligence asset from Russia in part because President Donald Trump revealed classified information to the Russians landed with a bang in the national security apparatus.

On the one hand, former officials told Insider, the news wasn't surprising given Trump's long history of deriding the intelligence community.

On the other hand, the implications of this development — that a US spy was extracted at least in part because the president could not be trusted to protect the person's identity — floored intelligence veterans because it confirmed some of their worst fears about Trump.

So Trump was trying to do some Russians a solid?   What else is new.   Compromising your own intelligence agencies is pretty pointless, stupid and even dangerous to your national security...but what does that matter as long as Vlad is happy?

In theory, everything is impeachable -- it's a political process, not a criminal one.

In practice, nothing is impeachable unless Moscow Mitch says it is, and MM thinks things are just fine at the moment.

Impeachment process is through Congress. So trump can be easily impeached.

Removal from office is through the Senate... where Moscow Mitch... actually he would let it through... you would just need a 60% majority to remove him from office.

Last year, Korbach, the guy that was in charge of the Trump search for all those illegal voters had this happen 😂

You can google search for days, I don't think you'll find another case where this happened:

On Monday, in a courtroom in Wichita, a federal judge told Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach that he had so blatantly violated federal discovery rules in a case he argued, defending a law requiring voters to prove their citizenship, that she ordered Kobach -- a former Department of Justice official under George W. Bush -- to take remedial legal courses.

Perfect guy to represent Trump.

John Bolton's replacement:
 

Quote

 

Charles Kupperman, made an extraordinary and controversial claim in the early 1980s:  nuclear conflict with the USSR was winnable and that “nuclear war is a destructive thing but still in large part a physics problem.”

Kupperman’s suggestion that the U.S. could triumph in a nuclear war went against dominant theories of mutually assured destruction and ignored the long-term destabilizing effects that such hostilities would have on the planet’s health and global politics.

Kupperman, appointed to his new post on Tuesday after Trump fired his John Bolton from the job, argued it was possible to win a nuclear war “in the classical sense,” and that the notion of total destruction stemming from such a superpower conflict was inaccurate. He said that in a scenario in which 20 million people died in the U.S. as opposed to 150 million, the nation could then emerge as the stronger side and prevail in its objectives.

His argument was that with enough planning and civil defense measures, such as “a certain layer of dirt and some reinforced construction materials,” the effects of a nuclear war could be limited and that U.S. would be able to fairly quickly rebuild itself after an all-out conflict with the then-Soviet Union.

 

Being cavalier about human suffering has never been an obstacle to holding high office in the USA.

Trump may be corrupt and is breaking every norm in politics but the Democrats are inept, you can't have a hearing and let the person being questioned run the show. What a farce and a waste of time

The Republicans are making a better case against Obama and the FBI than the Democrats are for obstruction against Trump, what a circus.
