    In short, Ratcliffes’s only qualification for the job is that he doesn’t care that Trump is completely without scruples and outsources his political chicanery to the Russians. If only Nixon had the Russians on his side during Watergate. The KGB knew how to deal with people like Goldwater.

    Ratcliffe is a fanatic member of the Republican Nazi Party. Will the Republican party sell out US Intelligence?

    Lincoln should’ve killed more more confederate soldiers to purge the world of they kind. His biggest mistake

    Now for the investigation of the investigators, treason. Vote in 2020 and defeat Donald “Benedict Arnold” Trump!

    Pretty sure that after Putin and his cronies were physically inside the White House, it will be Russian after they leave 😬

      There’s too many of them (corrupt Republicans). Nobody wants Pence to take over. Pelosi doesn’t want to be president. They don’t want any of the cabinet being president. It’s a catch 22.

    America is a very weak democracy, and we are now beginning to understand this. It seems our democratic institutions are ripe for takeover by a Putin inspired strongman, because the leadership of those institutions are unwilling to lead the charge in exposing the level of corrupt intent being demonstrated by this president that points to the implantation of a fascist, dictatorial type of regime poised to do away with all checks and balances to its power. This is happening because these people dont seem to realize that due to Trump’s disregard for norms, and the enablement of Republican congressional leadership, they are the next line of defense for protecting our democracy. Fear of losing a fat pay check or a pension should not be a deterrent for speaking truth to power. Doing this will be an exercise in courage. However, we seem to be consistently seeing an exercise in self-preservation and cowardice.

    A few weeks before the Mueller hearing…

    RATCLIFFE: I wanna be DNI director.

    TRUMP: Show me what you got.

    RATCLIFFE: Watch me at the Mueller hearing.

    RATcliffe is speaking to Trump’s constant 2020 campaign blather. All Trump’s hires will be conspiracy wonks.

    Trump doesnt like unfavorable intel so he picks a stooge that will be a loser just like the rest of Trump’s cabinet picks….

    Trump’s revolving door White House of chaos continues. Getting his yes-men in place is critical maintaining a high level of confusion. For a former federal attorney, Ratcliffe certainly embarrassed himself at the Mueller hearings. The special prosecutor has to explain why decisions to not prosecute were made and that’s what Robert Mueller did.
    The DNI should not be an ignorant grand-stander but that is what Ratcliffe made himself into at the hearing he attended.

    Another sycophant cultist who’s got absolutely no idea what the job entails. Maybe the reporters can find something on him. Probably won’t have to look very far..

    If you’re a U.S. Intel collector abroad, you’d better be careful about what you report in cables back to HQ. 45 and his minions don’t want ground truth that differs from their rosy assessments.

    Calling Trump and his minions facist not an insult. They wear it as an badge of honor. A right wing fascist dictatorship is their endgame.

    Ratcliffe is another name for a lemming and what do lemmings do , they blindly jump off cliffs. John , on his journey to the bottom will see his history flash before him and in his fall he might envisage his personal moral decline, his political appointment becoming an emblem of the cheap sale of his soul. He will also see his greed and ambition rewarded whilst he becomes weaker and more worried about displeasing Trump.
    When Trump goes down Ratcliffe will go down, and on his fall to the bottom Ratcliffe will see Trump and his criminal cronies either in jail or morally broken, It will be written in history as a lurid lesson to protect our freedom to stop racism, to stop political support of poverty, to stop misogyny, to stop selfish motivations in political decisions, to stop evil in politics

    In Orwellian Republican-speak, best of the best means worst of the worst! Trump meant every word, just keeping promises!

    The biggest terror threat to the US are right wing Trump worshippers, according to the FBI.

    America’s next worst seller: ‘The Adventures of Donald in Twitterland.’ Far more wacky than the original, lots of funny business, plenty of slapstick comedy and derisive laughs, but a sad and pathetic tale in sum.

    The U.S. now boasts an openly racist President! Congratulations, America, you’ve finally done it! Aren’t we proud of ourselves, now!
