Blabbermouth Trump Blabs Out More Classified Info

Remember a long time ago when blabbermouth Trump invited the Russians who jacked our election into the Oval Office and blabbed about “code-word” intel? Yeah, that was last week.

Then this week, he made matters worse by confirming that the source of the intel was Israel while scolding the media about saying he said it was Israel, which they had not said. God, what a dumbass.

As a result, Israeli officials are allegedly changing the way they share classified info with the US. They say their cooperation with the US is “unprecedented,” but they would say that since we dump bales of cash on them every year. But common sense says they’ll give blabbermouth less to blab about if they don’t want more sources torched.

Now US sources — probably via Trump and his entourage again, because we know he’s a blabbermouth — caught UK officials by surprise by prematurely releasing info on the Manchester bombing. Via the Guardian:

American officials in Washington briefed US journalists early on Tuesday about the number of dead, confirming that it was a suicide bombing and – hours later – the name of the killer. The UK had not been planning to release the name on Tuesday.

The UK’s reluctance to identify the assailant was evident because it took hours after his name was circulating in the US media before Greater Manchester police confirmed it.

One of the basic tenets of intelligence sharing is that other agencies do not disclose it. The problem is that those intelligence agencies, whether American or French, pass it up to their presidents, prime ministers and departmental ministers. In the past, that secrecy was respected.

After the leaks, it could be tempting for UK police and intelligence services to stop sharing sensitive information, although Britain relies heavily on the US sharing its intelligence and benefits from intelligence, especially on counter-terrorism, from European colleagues such as France and Germany.

And now someone from the Filipino government at the Trump White House* released a transcript of a call between Trump and Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, a nutcase who ordered the extrajudicial killing of thousands of Filipinos in that country’s “war on drugs” [NYT]. And guess what? Not only does Trump squee like a prepubescent girl at a Bieber concert about Duterte’s bloodthirsty antics, he reveals yet more classified information! Excerpts from the transcript:

TRUMP: l just wanted to congratulate you because I am hearing of the unbelievable job on the drug problem. Many countries have the problem, we have a problem, but what a great job you are doing and I just wanted to call and tell you that.

DUTERTE: Thank you, Mr President. This is the scourge of my nation now and have to do something to preserve the Filipino nation.

TRUMP: I understand that and fully understand that and I think we had a previous president who did not understand that, but I understand that and we have spoken about this before.

DUTERTE: Yes, I know that. Thank you. Yes.

Does Trump really admire Duterte’s murderous war on drugs? I doubt it. I’d bet money Trump has shoveled thousands of dollars up his own nostrils. But Duterte treated President Obama disrespectfully, so Trump thinks he’s a swell guy.

Now, on to the part where Trump spilled more secrets:

TRUMP: So how is everyone doing, how is the Philippines doing? [Jesus God! — Ed.]

DUTERTE: We are doing fine, Mr. President, but in the ASEAN summit, every member state was really nervous about the situation in the Korean peninsula, but we would like to tell you that we support you and keep on the pressure because as long as those rockets and warheads are in the hands of Kim Jong Un we will never be safe, as there’s no telling what will happen next.

TRUMP: What’s your opinion of (Kim), Rodrigo? Are we dealing with someone who is stable or not stable?

DUTERTE: He is not stable, Mr. President, as he keeps on smiling when he explodes a rocket. He even has gone against China, which is the last country he should rebuke. But it seems from his face — he is laughing always and there is a dangerous toy in his hands which could create so much agony and suffering for all mankind.

TRUMP: Well, he has got the powder but he doesn’t have the delivery system. All his rockets are crashing. That’s the good news. But eventually when he gets that delivery system… What do you think about China? Does China have power over him?

DUTERTE: Yes, at the end of the day, the last card, the ace has to be with China. It’s only China. He is playing with his bombs, his toys and from the looks of it, his mind is not working well and he might just go crazy one moment. China should make a last ditch effort to tell him to lay off. China will play a very important role there.

TRUMP: We have a lot of firepower over there. We have two submarines — the best in the world — not that we want to use them at all. I’ve never seen anything like they are but we don’t have to use this but he could be crazy so we will see what happens.

So basically, two lunatics are discussing the stability of a third lunatic, but only one of the lunatics is blabbing state secrets such as the location of submarines, and he’s our dumb fucking President Lunatic.

Can you imagine this buffoon keeping an operation like the bin Laden raid under wraps? Trump’s big fat mouth is going to get a lot of people killed. It’s only a matter of time.

    Sure, but like ours Duerte’s war on drugs is focused on killing low-level dealers and poor junkies; he hasn’t gone around killing people of substance just because they use. And you know trump genuinely admires autocrats who do as they please without paying attention to legal niceties. I’m sure trump wishes he could do the same stuff Duerte is doing, including the personally killing drug dealers.

    The price was killing Democrats who live in interesting places, forcing the survivors to fund a security state that armed Wyoming with assault helicopters and enriching Blackwater at our expense…so Republicans see no down side to another one.

    @eclare: It’s a norm. Basically, since the President can choose to declassify info just about at will, he’s legally allowed to say whatever the fuck he wants at any time to anyone (in terms of classified info).

    Now, normally a president wouldn’t do this because it’s a horrible idea in every sense, but this is Trump and the guy has no self control. Or the intelligence to know that he’s about to do something with real and long-lasting effects.

    Trump COULD be impeached for this sort of thing – it’s because impeachment doesn’t actually require an illegal crime. But that would (again) depend on Republicans doing their jobs.

Given the prohibition against tattoos if one wants to be buried in a Jewish cemetery, what about the Holocaust survivors who would have been tattooed with I.D. numbers? Once they were liberated, those who were, was there a rabbinical dispensation to overlook the tattoo thing and allow burial?

    @Tenar Arha: @SiubhanDuinne: Oops, ETA this applies to only Jewish cemeteries. You can be cremated, you just can’t get a burial in a Jewish cemetery. Non-denominational cemeteries are fine, as long as you can leave stones on a marker and a rabbi is able to pray there. I’m doing that for my father’s remains.

    @RAM:
    I would expect he was referring to attack subs or SSGNs with Tomahawk missiles rather than SSBNs, with nuclear missiles. You don’t have to be off the coast of Korea with a ballistic missile.
    During Desert Shield/Storm I was on SSBN deterrent patrol in the North Atlantic. My mom says she kept calling the USN hotline to see if I was safe, and kept being told, “We can’t tell you where the ship is, Ma’am.” I’m like, Mom, if my boat was involved you’d definitely notice.
