Beat the press is an idea whose time has come.
Trump needs to start imposing censorship on the media.
And jail for contempt.

So how many special prosecutors do we need?

1- Russia meddling in election
2- Hilary keeping top secrets on home brew server
3- Clinton Foundation getting kickbacks from sec of state approvals, like the 142 million for approving sale of 20% uranium to Canada company that sold it to Russia
4- IRS targeting non-profit applications
5- unmasking of Americans for political purposes

probably need some more, but that's a good start

TREASON needs addressed, not swept under the rug

Really, was it illegal for him, as President, to do so?

He can tell them anything he wants.

You act like he had classified data in a bathroom somewhere?

The Washington Compost strikes again.

There is no indication in that story of who is making those charges or how that person or persons know what went on in that meeting, or evidence that it actually happened. No sources whatsoever are even hinted at. This is sloppy reporting.

The story does say:

Quote:
“The president and the foreign minister reviewed common threats from terrorist organizations to include threats to aviation,” said H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser, who participated in the meeting. “At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed, and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly.”
McMaster said this, Anonymous said that. Yawn. I am not a Trumpette, and I know he is perfectly capable of letting his mouth go into overdrive, but this story is weak sauce.

Trumpette? No. Half-ass Trump apologist? Definitely. While not often defending Trump directly, you like to undermine the posters and sources that do criticize him. Weak sauce, indeed..

Maybe the NYT article is made of sterner stuff

I like to point out when the emperor has no clothes. Or when the emperor's critics don't. Trump is a quivering mass of insecurity and inconsistency, a prime target for legitimate, documented attack. I see no evidence that this is an example of what good journalism could produce.

Nope. Still all unsubstantiated gossip.

And the original Washington Compost piece is an insult to the kind of journalism that paper used to produce, like the Woodward and Bernstein coverage of Nixon and Watergate.

We don't know, for sure, to what extent the Trump campaign was involved. The problem, if the Daily Kos story is correct, is that the Republicans will refuse to investigate the matter. If they have nothing to hide, why are they hiding it?
The voting machines were hacked and votes were changed?
