    FORMER Navy vet, but had clearance during his tenure.
    In the Navy, I kept plenty of classified info a secret. Why can’t Trump?

    Did he leave any classified info in a hotel? Any classified e-mails deleted? Did he have weiner ....er Jared or Ivanka print classified e-mails for him? If so let's find a reasonable prosecutor......

    Did he keep his emails hidden from the world by using a cheap ass server in his house to handle State Department data? Did he lose various Mobile phones that handled the same data?

    So POTUS can't be responsible for his actions as long as someone else, at some other time, did something else?

    Everybody with a Twitter account knows Trump is a danger to security. I didn't say US security because he's a danger to everybody's security.

    He hasn't violated one statute or law regarding classified/secret/top secret/SCI information. Not one.

    EXACTLY! He's given away top-clearance secrets to the Russians, secrets that (because they came from Israel) we haven't even shared with our allies. But, he's the president! He's allowed to throw classified data to the winds if he feels like it!

    Ok? Are we going to start a thread every time the president does something he's allowed to do?

    probably since there seems to be a contest under way to see whether you or jkcerda will prove out to be the most persistent defender of Trump among his previous promoters :p

    When it appears that he's trying to burn down the country, even if he's allowed to, we probably will.

    You claimed that Trump confessed to revealing classified data. I'm formally asking for the source in accordance with forum rules.

    Please provide a link Steve. God!!!!! A quote doesn't help me. It doesn't show you wrote the article or who did the research. It's pretty simple.

    that is trumps tweet what more do you want????? maybe bring trump into verify it??? with a whole ten seconds you could have copied and pasted it into google and saw he wrote it. I mean cause him saying he as president wasn't clue enough. Plus if I remember right I bet you commented on this tweet. well maybe not you may have been on vacation.
    here you go since your having troubles with it.

    Who the **** is this guy and why does having 10 years of security clearance matter if you remain anonymous? How about 25 years or 50.

    What brand and model of sever did Clinton use? Your access to inside information is impressive. How was the speed and reliability of her server compared to others?
