President Trump's executive order today should concern every American who doesn't want to see our country slip into authoritarianism. 
This is a stark escalation in President Trump's authoritarian tactics. The 'Spygate' conspiracy theory Barr is investigating has already been thoroughly debunked. It is also well-known that the Russia investigation began because George Papadopoulos bragged about Russia's dirt on Hillary Clinton to an Australian diplomat.David Laufman, former Chief of the Counterintelligence and Export Control Section at the Department of Justice, told MSNBC Trump's order is 'a grotesque abuse of the intelligence community to further his goal of political retribution, made worse by the spectacle of the Justice Department as his handmaiden.'

I would LOVE to see an investigation into the investigators. Many rocks would be unturned and slimy critters exposed, based on all I've seen so far.

Trump's delegation of that power to his syncophnat Barr, "effectively strips Mr Coats and the CIA of control of their secrets. This one, could endanger the agencies ability to keep the identity of their sources secret." "It could dry up sources and inhibit their ability too gather intelligence" says Adam Shiff."


All this to satisfy the temper tantrum of the corrupt mobster, who thinks governing is the same as running his real estate scams...just get a rogue lawyer to hide everything.


he has already demolished the EPA, undone allthe rules and regulations that we the people have been fortunate to see passed as law, and created a white House that is scorned and ridiculed across the modern world. Now, he wants to undo the this, too?


Thankfully, Mr Shiff and others think critically about the genuine need for national security, and are more than "uneasy" when an authoritarian who would be king spins truth to escape the scrutiny of his actions.


IMHO in order to get the dirt -- to satisfy the curiosity of some people, so they can learn why the investigators chose to investigate -- is not the issue. becasue anyone and everyone who reads, already has all the info (like what Mueller and Congress has revealed so far!


Noam Chomsky, George Will, Ben Witt and most ' thinking' folks, know exactly why this president is in trouble.



. The CIA and the FBI like all secret organizations, are far from perfect, and have done much mischief... but....WE are not entitled to such information, that will endanger our organizations created to help the government to really KNOW THINGS---just to satisfy our curiosity.


Moreover, behavior reveals all--- so if he keeps talking--he will shoot himself in the mouth! All narcissists can't stop themselves from believing that they are entitled to what passes as truth inside their heads!.
