Secret Service agents should avoid posting anything to social media. Especially for the details assigned to the president and VP. I'm surprised it's not policy.



Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But, shout it at them in German because life is also terrifying and confusing.

It is policy:

quote:
Secret Service employees are among those federal employees subject to enhanced Hatch Act restrictions, including these two rules:

May not post a comment to a blog or a social media site that advocates for or against a partisan political party, candidate for partisan political office, or partisan political group.

May not use any email account or social media to distribute, send or forward content that advocates for or against a partisan political party, candidate for partisan political office, or partisan political group.

The Secret Service misconduct probe is focused on whether O'Grady posted the comments during work hours, according to several Secret Service sources.


The whistleblowers are concerned that the brass is trying to cover for her and shuffle her around without firing her.

I think any social media posting should be restricted, not just political content.

One might wonder if there are other USSS agents who have the same feelings as this agent, but are just smarter and don't post it or talk about it openly.

I watched it also. I've got to give him credit for the skill he used to weave the democrat's narrative into the known truth, thus giving the narrative a semblance of truth.
I was also stuck by the line of questioning from the black woman concerning Flynn. Her accusations framed in the form of a question pointed to the law relating to members of government and the military accepting money for speaking engagements or lobbying efforts on behalf of foreign governments. Flynn accepted $35K for a speech to a foreign government and also lobbied for Turkey.
I'm sitting there thinking "That sounds more like Hitlery Klingon how'd she get away with it?" Then I realized that we are seeing rise to a beast more evil than the shell corporation, meet the shell foundation. Designed not just to skirt the law but to also abuse the public's trust.

Did anyone else notice how the FBI is now pursuing every possible avenue of investigation on the Trump/Russia ties and potential election tampering, but wobbled on the fence and eventunally did nothing about Clinton's clear breach of national security using a personal email server?

I cannot listen to anything that Comey says and give it even an ounce of credibility. How has he maintained his position as FBI Director?

I can't imagine what it is because he should be in jail, but Trump has a reason for keeping him in the seat - perhaps it is to give him enough rope to hang himself in the future

Sack anyone at the FBI and NSA unwilling to back Trump on the wiretap investigation. Comey is a traitor.

With this thread only 2 months old and having the numbers it has already, by the end of Trumps first term it should have something like 99,000 posts and approx. 7,360,000 views. Razz

"Comey is a traitor."

I agree. But what, exactly, is he up to in these hearings? I have the feeling that his comments about the Russians attacking "democracy," and trying to defeat Hillary are a prelude to something more. He is so out of line with the supposedly "non-political" FBI mission. Why would he say these things? Along with "top" Democrats like Pelosi and others suggesting that Trump will soon be out of office-- I think all this might be a set up for formal impeachment hearings.

I know-- that is preposterous. But these are evil and desperate people, and they -- the Democrats-- have a lot of RINOs and "Never Trumpers" on their side.

Maybe they themselves don't even know what they are doing-- beyond just damaging/weakening Trump's presidency.

We are a bit past the ides of March, but if they do have nefarious plans, they will tip the country right over into civil war.

I have the flu, and maybe what I have just said is just "sick thinking." (Everything looks sinister when you feel like crap.)

I don't know, but from the testimony I saw (I actually watched the hearing), Comey seemed to imply in his answers about Russia's and Putin's motivation that they did so not necessarily because they liked Trump, but because they had such dislike for Clinton. Putin hated Hillary so much that he was in effect rooting for Trump.

Kinda like when you hate a football team so much that you root for and actively help whoever their opposing team is.

I heard pretty much most of Comey's testimony, and I don't see where y'all are perceiving such nefarious intent. Do you really expect Comey to not say anything at all that might be perceived as negative for the President? Absolutely nothing?

My 79 year old memory is getting foggy, but I do seem to remember something about 40 tons of uranium that the hildabeast brokered for Russia.

Maybe Putin only pissed (if he really is) because she let the cat out of the bag.

And, as far as comey (uncapped on purpose) is concerned the SOB should be sitting in federal prison for perpetuating the klinton foundation, national security breaches, perjury just to name a few. His covering for the klintons simply makes him complicit in their crimes.

And as far as I am concerned, Trump has made a very large mistake in not throwing the SOB out with the rest of the obummer trash.

Not to mention some number of obummer appointees still in office where they can do a lot of damage.

I am not generally in favor of throwing the baby out with the bath water, but in this case it is long overdue.

CBS 60 minutes had a segment on last night about H1B visa abuse (Univ of CA and Disney letting programmers go and hiring foreign workers at half the salary). My question is, WHY NOW CBS? Breitbart and other sites have been reporting on this for a long time. Is CBS suddenly getting a conscience and reporting on news that affects real American lives - even if it is favorable to President Trump? Or perhaps they are truly worried about the 2018 midterms and decided they had better start finding out what some of these issues are all about. Did they have to wait until after the election so as not to unduly influence it?! No, none of these answers really makes any sense.

Maybe I'll send this article to some of my liberal relatives. Perhaps they will know. At least they can't say Breitbart is ALL fake news!!

How many times today did Comey say he is so concerned about the proper handling of classified info ?

(Just not TS/SCI SAP and a couple thousand CONF emails)

It is very frustrating to watch our country being torn in two and our president's legitimacy be attacked every day while Comey can't comment on anything. (Unless it puts the President in a bad light)

Comey is not doing the FBI or the country much good. MHO.

BTW, did the FBI ever examine the DNC computers ? Earlier reports were that only Crowdstrike examined the DNC machines. The DNC refused to let the FBI look at them.

... I'm sure that the particular line of questioning being pursued, protects a number of jobs that are on the line right now.

Email servers, uranium deals, Foundation 'donations' .. all are very much taking the proverbial backseat.

I trust that this and other investigations (Comey as well) are not lost or swept away as the short memory minded sheeple go about their lives.

All part of the plan to let the whole MCF fade away into obscurity. Nothing else.

Too many high ranking folks are involved in one form or another to let this particular cat out of the bag.

Like Comey did when he held that 20+ minute briefing in which he outlined all the criminal actions by the hildabeast, and then refused to pursue any of it. Because he could find no INTENT to do wrong.

Say what? All those security briefings, papers signed, etc etc about security requirements, and she simply ignored it all and set up her own system outside the state department. Hundreds of security violations. And, if I recall correctly, each could be a separate charge.

That meeting between slick willy and good ol' loretta was not to talk about grand kids.

And it was successful.

The media seems fixated on how Trump might be involved with the Russians. Why is it they could care less about the information that was revealed in the hack? They should still be talking about how the Clinton camp fixed the Democratic nomination.

... because had the outcome been different, it would not have mattered or even been blip on the fuzzy radar. No one paid any attention.

Now that we have a CIC who makes it matter, now the attention is fixed ...
