Weird as fuck. But this is a Trump thread. To be clear, Trump conspiracies here, HRC conspiracies elsewhere.

I'm blown away with the accelerating pace of scandalous news surrounding the current administration. WTF. We were dealt a shit hand this election cycle. The corruption has gone too far. Neither the douchebag nor the turd sandwich was interested in "draining the swamp" or fixing things for those of us actually working for a living. FML. Trump is an embarrassment to us all though. He can't even play the game.

Trump seems to have made a serious tactical error in firing Comey, especially the way he did it.  Comey's the guy with the dirt on everyone.  And I get the impression that he's planted a dead man's switch with all of these stories on Trump. 

This has probably been the most disturbing week since he's taken office.  I'm worried about the long term consequences if congress does nothing.  On the positive side I am laughing my ass off at the Republican's attempts to defend him.  My favorite so far has been McConnell's reaction to Trump giving highly classified information to the Russians.  A mob of reporters started asking him questions.  He just turned stone faced and walked straight out the door without saying a word.  Not even a "he's a different kind of president".  Hilarious.

Oho.

Anyone know what was actually leaked?
We're sending foia requests now but the media isn't saying anything much yet.

I don't have an article handy but I think it was something about a terrorist plot involving turning a laptop into an bomb.

I think the issue with sharing this Intel is that it endangers the source.

Spicey literally hiding in the bushes to avoid taking questions was sublime.  I'm convinced that historians will look back on this time as our country's absurd period.

I hope we are that fortunate. It's a slow motion train wreck. The longer it persists in this fashion, the more "absurd" becomes a term to hope for, versus alternatives like "unmitigated, self-inflicted disaster" or what-have-you.

I get that, I do. I just like knowing what's going on.

I'd like to make an opinion if the leaks were that bad or just being played up by the media. There isn't enough information available for me to know what's going on.

Also as you guys know I refuse to believe the news just cause it's the news. I like sources.

Still glued to the couch but I will add that Trump isn't challenging the story. What he contends is that what he did was lawful. That's technically true but only in the same sense that it's lawful to drive a car you own into a river.

It looks embarrassing for Trump but to me the stories where he seems to be obstructing justice are more important.

Chaffetz (of all people) to the rescue! He just requested all memos/notes/summaries/recordings relating to communications between Comey and Trump to determine if there was an attempt to influence/impede the investigation. The deadline is May 24, and he publicly stated he is willing to subpoena it. At least they are actually doing something, finally.

Also, Lindsey Graham reportedly invited Comey to publicly testify before the senate. Should be interesting.

At this point, most of the details in the original WaPo report have been confirmed by Trump or McMaster. The exception being the severity/danger of the leaked material. At this point it is a he-said-she-said between the various news outlets and McMaster on whether the information given was inappropriate or dangerous.

You're right, I really should have qualified that by saying "if we're lucky". But things seem to be spiralling fast now. If things keep going at this pace how much longer can Congress really turn a blind eye? The cracks are already showing.

Exactly right.

We don't know whether the information given was inappropriate or dangerous.

I look forward to the foia requests results, hopefully they give us what we want.
