Trump is really pissed off about these leaks, and rightfully so, but I think I’d also be concerned about who was monitoring them. Do we have another Snowden at NSA?

I’d really be concerned if the calls were made from the Oval Office, which should be one of the most secure phone lines in the world. I’m sure the office is swept for bugs on a frequent basis but maybe it’s time to call in an independent company.

Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean that they’re not out to get you. Wink

You have to suspect a mole or several in the holdover civil service staff.

Trump will face a significant problem from these guys who work for the government but are not on his side. Even after his cabinet gets in place, those sneaky immoral bastards in civil service will be trying to gum things up.




Luckily, I have enough willpower to control the driving ambition that rages within me.

When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

Press conference was great! I had a good laugh a couple of times.

Now here's this. The Hag not turning over 33,000 emails and compromising national security - no biggie, but Scott Pruitt (EPA nominee) dragging his feet on 3,00, OMG!

Hopefully Pruitt gets confirmed tomorrow.

"An Oklahoma County District Court judge is holding a hearing on Thursday on whether President Donald Trump's nominee to lead the EPA violated a state transparency law.

The judge could order his office to turn over thousands of documents to a watchdog group.

The hearing is the latest turn in a lawsuit against Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt brought by the Center for Media and Democracy earlier this month. CMD charges Pruitt violated the Oklahoma Open Records Act for declining to make public official emails the group has requested since 2015.

CMD has sought correspondences between Pruitt's office and Koch Industries, other mining and drilling companies, and the Republican Attorneys General Association, which Pruitt chaired. As of Thursday's hearing, the office had turned over 411 of the more than 3,000 emails CMD requested, according to the group.

Among the emails CMD says it has not received is a correspondence featured prominently in a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times story. The communication showed Pruitt's office signed a letter, drafted by lawyers for Devon Energy, that accused federal regulators of overstating the amount of pollution caused by new natural gas wells.

The Times article detailed Pruitt's leading role in an effort by Republican attorneys general to challenge Obama-era regulations in partnership with corporate interests.

Thursday's hearing before Judge Aletia Haynes Timmons of the District Court of Oklahoma County comes ahead of Pruitt's confirmation to lead the Environmental Protection Agency, which is expected to take place on Friday. Judge Timmons earlier granted an expedited hearing.

Democratic members of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works boycotted a vote to move forward Pruitt's confirmation and have since sought to stall a vote in the full chamber. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse has pointed to at least 52 outstanding Open Records Act requests directed to the Oklahoma attorney general's office as one reason for Democratic opposition.

The Republican-controlled Senate voted to end debate on Pruitt's nomination.

Since his nomination, Pruitt has attracted widespread condemnation from environmentalists and Democrats for suing the EPA multiple times and questioning the science behind climate change. His calls for states to take more control over energy industry regulation has drawn support among conservatives and corporate interests.

The call was monitored because the person on the other end of the line was in Russia, or so they are telling us... That actually doesn't bother me all that much as I suspect that is normal.

That the contents of the call were released, however, is very troubling. And most probably a felony.

I believe he was referring to the phone calls Trump made with world leaders from the Oval Office. Portions of the contents of those calls were leaked to media.

How could this happen? Is an agency outside of the WH monitoring the President's calls?

Harward turns down Trump's national security adviser offer, sources say

President Trump's first choice to succeed the departed Michael Flynn as national security adviser has turned the job down due to family reasons, sources close to the situation told Fox News late Thursday.

One source told Fox that retired Navy Vice Admiral Robert Harward "really wanted" to do the job, but ultimately decided that he could not.

There was no immediate comment from the White House. Harward had been due to meet with Trump Thursday night.

At a news conference earlier Thursday, the president said he had "somebody that I think will be outstanding for the position" of national security adviser, but did not mention any names.

I just happen to be spending my three minutes a day on CNN on this was announced. Some dumb bitch on there said Harvard said it was a "shit show" there and wanted no part of it.
All hearsay. He would not use such a phrase for public consumption.

I have read a couple of books written by Chapman Pincher about them. I find it interesting that Wikipedia doesn't mention his research nor do they mention Roger Hollis.

Anything you say to a reporter must be considered eventually for public consumption.
