Trump makes chumps of his handlers…again

After trotting National Security Adviser McMaster and Deputy NSA Powell out yesterday to deny that he’d leaked sensitive intel during his performance review meeting with the Russians last week, Trump this morning tweeted confirmation that he had, in fact, shared intel:

WTF? I say again, what the actual fuck? I want off this roller coaster.

    MAybe this comment is more appropriate here:OK playing devils advocate (and that is in very very large letters), I can see a reason to share this info with Russia.
    1. Russia may have been in a position to take out the bomb builders
    2. Since Russian passenger planes have been bombed out of the air they would have a vested interest in stopping this plot. They would have no reason to think that Daesh would not pass the skill set on the Chechen rebels.

    NOW that being said, it seems to me, that kind of information would be transferred at a lower level than POTUS and only after it was carefully sanitized to avoid Russian re-engineering. And maybe even in exchange for something of value from the Russians

    Or I have been watching to many spy movies??????

    This is clearly a negotiated statement coordinated with the press office… and it’s really stupid.

    Implies that Trump knew how important the disclosure was and it was a considered decision to share. This implies there is evidence of deliberation beforehand, which is absurd given the panicked response of the intel community (before the leak) and white house publicity staff (after).

    I assumed everyone who bothered to think about it could guess that the evidence underlying the laptop ban was pretty damning but that it couldn’t be shared for some important reason… guess Trump never bothered to think about it.

    My point was under some very unique and carefully controlled circumstances it might be in the interest of the US to share some info with the Russians. Short of protecting the planet from an invasion from Mars, the way Der Fuhrer behaved does not fit the definition of unique circumstances.

    Barbara says:

    There is a kind of person who loathes the kind of people who are, essentially, handlers. A more understandable analogy would be the Bush twins trying to lose their Secret Service protection. On the one hand Trump apparently becomes enraged when his defenders do a lousy job in his mind, but on the other, when they do smooth the roughest edges of his outrages as McMasters tried to do (to not very good effect I must say), within short order he makes them look like fools by contradicting what they said. He is probably pathologically repulsed at the idea that his conduct needs to be explained or filtered by anyone, but his impulse to sabotage others (even if it means sabotaging himself) could also be a stage of dementia. One reason I actually think this is more pathology than dementia is that it seems to be a vice that is common to others in his orbit. Apparently Kushner was angry that Spicer didn’t do a better job dealing with the Comey fall out. I mean, the mind reels. It’s not that I like Spicer, but you can’t deliberately set a guy up to fail and then complain that he failed. Well duh! These are the Tom and Daisy Buchanans of the real world, smashing and grabbing and then getting away with it. Except, they don’t only want to get away with their misconduct, they want to stick around with continued adoration.

    The Goldenstein story was at least kinda plausible (if you actually read the memo and saw that Comey being unfair to HRC wasn’t the main complaint) till Trump torpedoed it. This story is 1000% a lie and just sounds crazy… who’s running White House PR now?

    The sad thing is that all of the intel sources I’ve seen are doing damage control to try to help American interests (and, presumably, by extension, Trump’s interests). The initial leak could’ve easily come from Russia; it could’ve had more details. The intel sources are pointing out that the source wasn’t revealed… very important to reassure whoever it is.

    It turns out that Presidents do on occasion divulge classified stuff during meetings with foreign officials – including those we are traditionally adversarial with.

    Problem is, in every one of those situations, there were other people in the room. People from the CIA and State Dept. and Defense Dept. and other advisors to make sure the info had been vetted and cleaned out to ensure NOTHING DAMAGING GOT OUT.

    In THIS situation, it was just trump in the room with three Russians (don’t forget the photographer spy guy) and he blurted out EVERY DETAIL THAT COULD PROVIDE THE RUSSIANS WITH KEY DATA ABOUT OUR INTEL SOURCES.

    Russia might well be OK with this if Putin can control who’s in power next; Assad can be an inconvenient ally and a puppet would be preferable.

    That’s my guess on where this is going and what the White House meeting was about. Trump thinks he’s engineering a game-changing deal to unite everyone against ISIS that’ll make him finally look PRESIDENTIAL and give a legit explanation to some shady things. But really he’s just being played to help put another strongman into power who answers to Putin.

Russians probably baited Trump by making up their own intel about the threat and sharing it with him and he felt compelled to outdo them in response.

Perhaps if he had told them in advance, hey I really think the Russians may be able to help us with this, that nation could have said yes or no, or if they thought that Twitler was going to tell regardless of what they said, gotten their asset/operative out of harms way.

    I don’t think it would be an effective line, Republicans love when Democrats abandon their party to join to the other side, it shows just how terrible they are that they can’t keep “good” people in their ranks. Remember there’s a long history of GOP stars who were democrats, Rick Perry, a whole bunch of Southern congresscritters including if I’m not mistaken Jeff Sessions, and of course the Sainted Ronnald Maximus Reaygun. What they don’t like are people who change to try to save their seats, they know that’s not a real conversion, just political expediency, looking at you Joe Manchin.

Looking back now, I bet he paid that guy.
    New York is so democratic that people register as democrat so they can vote in the primaries where the winner is usually picked. They have strict rules about changing parties about a year in advance and Ivanka and Jared caught a lot of flack because they weren’t registered as republican on time. his earlier positions were pro choice until he got kind of serious about running. He donated to both parties to have influence not because he cared. His positions are not democratic by any stretch, he would not have won our prinary.

Said in early 09 that Obama was doing a good job and supported the Stimulus (all this from memory so, I could be wrong). I think in 2000 he flirted with the reform party, hinted at a GOP run in ’06 or ’07, was serious about a possible primary run in 2011 but backed off. My recollection is birtherism was fading when he latched onto it in early 2012. It got him attention, which is his oxygen. He hasn’t looked back.

His ability to command attention could be a strength, but it is more than offset by his pathologic need for attention, which makes him extremely vulnerable.

    The part about disclosing something to Putin wasn’t as bad because the underlying point was that our team thought well ahead of time how to handle it and went to the trouble of creating a completely new book so that all possible info would be scrubbed out and we were giving just what we agreed to and nothing else.

    WARNING POLITCO
    Democrats divide on Bernie’s 2020 plans

    Many top Democrats are furious that Bernie Sanders appears to be running for president again, or at least planning to drag out his decision long enough to freeze the race around him.

    He’s frustrating alumni of his 2016 campaign, some of whom would like him to run again, by showing no interest in raising early money or locking down lower level staff — moves they say would indicate he recognizes the need for a different kind of campaign operation in 2020. Outside of his tighter-than-ever inner circle, friends and staffers who’d be happy to back him again say they rarely, if ever, speak to Sanders these days.

    ………Weighing on him throughout it all and clouding his outlook, people close to him say, is the toll on his family from the ongoing FBI investigation into potential bank fraud at the small Vermont college where his wife was the president.

    But the senator, who’ll be 79 the next time the New Hampshire primary rolls around, is continuing to put himself at the center of the conversation. He’s introduced a Medicare-for-all bill this week that he hopes will force others to sign on. He’s joining Ohio Gov. John Kasich for a CNN town hall tonight that’s being held on the evening of the Center for American Progress forward-looking Ideas Conference — an event Sanders wasn’t invited to. Some of his moves, like collecting names and email addresses via RSVPs to his “unity tour” with new Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez for his Friends of Bernie Sanders group — a mailing list the DNC itself won’t have any access to — have alienated his allies on the left.

    “The fact that Tom Perez has given Sanders a platform without Sanders genuinely agreeing to work toward ‘unity’ has made a mockery of the whole process and literally divided the party more than it was before the tour began. It has been a disaster,” said Markos Moulitsas, the founder of the influential liberal Daily Kos site. “Yes, Perez and company are clearly afraid of Sanders and his followers, but letting Sanders make a mockery of the party doesn’t exactly help it build in the long haul.”…………

    ………Sanders loyalists say they’re eager to stir up the internal fight that they say the party needs to have. To Sanders, it’s the natural next step in his pursuit of the 40-year-old goal of upending the established political system, which they see millions of voters having supported last year. And each passing day of the Trump administration, along with the Democrats’ resistance, has vindicated his belief that substantive change can come when masses rise up.

    “Our party is divided into various wings, and Bernie clearly represents one of those wings. It is a progressive, activist, economic populist wing to the party,” said Mark Longabaugh, one of the top strategists for the 2016 campaign, who said he’s among those who’d be ready to sign up again. “The rest of the party still hasn’t wrapped its mind around it.”………..

    ……….“First of all, you have to confess we’re not together. You can have a unity tour until the cows come home, but there’s a divide in the party,” said former Ohio state Senator Nina Turner, another Our Revolution board member.

    Sanders sees everything he’s doing as maximizing his sway in the Senate, using the speculation to build his center of gravity. To the extent he has thought about 2020, he hasn’t gotten into how different the race would likely be if it’s a packed field, rather than the binary choice of 2016.

    Beyond that, I’d suggest following @JasminMuj, Jasmin Mujanović. He’s a PolySci guy with some very keen insights into countries that slide into authoritarian regimes. He is arguing strongly that just waiting for the mid-terms will be too late. Not that we shouldn’t organize for those, but that we need to step up protests and resistance now for the 2018 elections to still have enough weight to matter.

    I know he’s got some new perspective, but just wait until he finds out just how “complicated” the Middle East really is, I wonder if anyone has explained the whole Sunni Shia thing, let alone throwing in the Druids, Alawites and Wahhabi’s. Does he know what that the Kurds are not Arabs?

    Bernie’s wing is neither progressive, nor activist. It is only economically populist.

    But the senator, who’ll be 79 the next time the New Hampshire primary rolls around,

    Just stop. Fuckin Christ Sake. I wouldn’t vote for him at that age even if he were a ‘spry 79.’

    @Frankensteinbeck: And even then, its “populism” is more kvetching about the state of the world than offering any solutions to it.

    @different-church-lady: You don’t have to be old to remember that. It was their position 6 months ago. Now if you mean you remember when they actually meant it then I am afraid you are old indeed.

    @Kay:

    Did anyone else notice that Trump picked up the idea that one way to justify something that is not in the national interest is “humanitarian reasons”? He’s saying he told the Russians to protect ordinary people on airplanes. That puts distance between him and Russian leadership.

    OMG, Trump’s Rasor said this is what Trump though he was doing – Grandpa Dumbass was warning those nice Russain fellows about the Islamicists and thier sneaky Laptop Bombs he just read about on the Intertubes and then start telling them about US intell to show them Russian fellows Old Donny knows a thing or two still. What does my dad call it when my mom does this; “socializing”,Trump is just like my 70 something mother and her second childhood.
