  • The War on Whistleblowers

    --------------------
    The Justice Department's subpoena of New York Times reporter James Risen was the latest sign of how aggressive the Trump administration is being in its campaign against government whistleblowers. The purpose of Risen's subpoena is to force him to testify that Jeffrey Sterling, a former CIA agent, gave him confidential information about the CIA's efforts to sabotage Iran's nuclear program. The extent to which the administration is prosecuting leakers has troubled those who see leakers as speakers of truth to power. 'In President Trump's 32 months in office, civilian and military prosecutors have charged five people in cases involving leaking information, more than all previous presidents combined,' reports the Times."

    Sorry did I say Trump administration? No... that article was from 2011 and about the Obama administration. Unprecedented coercion, threats and punishments against whistleblowers and leakers.

    Remember the uproar and the crying? I sure don't.

    They are guilty of all their stupid accusations. Which means at the very least, they "collude" with foreign powers during elections (knew that) and enrich themselves by threatening to withhold aid from countries that need us (guessed that).

      Don’t forget Hillary selling a bunch of USA property enriched uranium to Russia while she was Secretary of State.... and banking COIN to the Clinton Foundation in a later unrelated transaction from a related corporation!
      Plandy Balderschlong is a douchebag who was once escorted out of a petting zoo for engaging in assplay with pygmy goats.

        The Left knows they are bullsh*tting about all this stuff. That's what really grinds. They don't give a f*ck about anything but raw naked power. Their newfound moral preening is so f*cking disingenuous, I'm surprised they don't explode on the spot when talking about "right" and "wrong". This is why you never Pelosi etc out during thunderstorms.

          I don’t know what’s worse, libs who fall for the idea that the Obama administration was an 8-year scandal free run, or libs, who should know better (i.e. lived through, and were conscious of it) act as if, besides overuse of Twitter, we’d never seen such an “Un-Presidential” and a mess of an Administration and a sexual predator in the Oval Office, when I don’t know, do you remember the 1990s at all?!
