    Yesterday Rep. Devin Nunes (R) of California revealed to the press and then went directly to P Trump there was indeed incidental intel gathering of Trump aids "caught up in U.S. surveillance of foreign targets overseas in the months after the election."

    The thing is, Nunes, a House member, told the press and Trump about this, but did not tell, let alone talk, with the House Intelligence Committee chaired by fellow Republicans and Democrats.

    This a massive breach of protocol and ethics with the direct contact of the department under investigation.
    It also destroys any ability for the House Intelligence Committee to be fair and unbiased in its report since its chairman was obviously in direct contact with Trump.

    Then there is "leaks"
    "Nunes cited information he said was brought to him by credible sources"
    That almost sounds like information to leaked to Nunes outside proper intel channels.

    W-T-H!!

    Who are you supposed to go to if the whole damn system is corrupt? How many of these intel leaders have out right lied to the American people and to Congress/Senate?

    Oh yeah that wasn't meant to be partisan. Whistle blowers are saying that they are spying on everyone influential up to and include SCOTUS. Imagine what kind of leverage you would have on a SCOTUS Judge if you knew their deep dark secrets.

    When one ignore what little semblance of non-partisan investigation, then nothing in DC can be trusted.

    Trump has no credibility, he IS what he says is wants to destroy.

    Yep. Also, it is funny how unnamed sources are only believed if written in the Post, Times, or heard on CNN and MSNBC.

    I think the Founding Fathers would have been shooting people in the face by now. Me? I'd be totally cool with being a hermit in the middle of a few thousands acres.

    We the People get the leaders we deserve by voting for the same type of politicians all the time.

    Remember its been the Russian's objective to have the American people lose faith in the democratic system. I think they have accomplished that. No matter what side is right, this is a complete crap show.

    we might get to that point and the stupid POS morons at the top don't realize that THEY are to blame, not the Russians or any other boogeyman out there. freaking Idiots are worse than the British that got over thrown........... founding fathers would have rebelled long time ago & not let things go as they have.
    this is Murika, there are no "reasonable" prosecutors here :D

    Interesting post since my reply was in response to outlets like that. So your counter to my counter is to just copy the original post. Umm ok

    But neither does Trump or his administration. See what I did there?

    i don't know. We seem a bit stuck in a rut. Maybe we do need a revolution.
