The “Tapes” Threat
The “Tapes” Threat
This may be so obvious it needs no explanation — but allow me to explain. This tweet puts on notice anyone who has a conversation with the POTUS that whatever they say MAY be recorded and selectively “leaked” for the purpose of blackmail, extortion and/or intimidation.
That should be an effective strategy for ensuring candid, confidential communication and advice. Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan may be too stupid to realize the implications or too corrupt to care but there is no putting this genie back in the bottle.
What other Presidents have recorded conversations?
Did the Bush’s, Clinton and Obama tape? My bet is they did.
So what if they recorded. How many resisted turning them over to Congress once requested to do so legally. The only one I know of is Nixon.
As Rachel Maddow said on Friday, Tapes you say, tapes…these can be subpoenaed by the house — should they ever decide to do their job…
Congress has asked for the tapes. If Trump refuses, Congress can subpoena them if Republicans will support it. Then we will see who the law and order party really is.
Next, Trump needs to admit his paternal side is of Russian Ashkenazi heritage as is his financial backers in eastern europe. Maybe that would open up eyes. Not all zionist are pro-american. Many seek to destroy America’s financial clout.
This is where the left is tripping over themselves.
I often wonder what is the mindset of people who deflect topics?
Are they just merely incompetent at reading comprehension? Cleverly trying to control the dialogue? Do they think there is a chance that anyone without their same thought process is going to allow themselves to swallow their garbage?
how is that bombshell coming?
not every connection you can’t see is an attempt to hijack the conversation.
but don’t take it personally. the main reason i am commenting here is to test AB to see if it is my problem that I can’t comment on the Medicare posts.
Coberly – you ask about a “bombshell”. You are referring to the Comey/FBI director’ s letter to congress one week before the election. I called that a bombshell at the time.
You ask how that is working out? Well I am one of the millions of Americans who think what Comey did threw the election. I think it is one of the biggest political bombshells in the country’s history.
You may think that rigging a national election is of no consequence. But that would make you a fool.
For what it it worth I was not the only one to refer to Comey’s letter as a bombshell”
Cris Wallace used the word bombshell:
POLITICO called it a bombshell:
Coberly why don’t you just Google “Comey Bombshell” and see what comes up. I have no idea why you harp on this, but you look the fool to me.
when you threw that “bombshell” at us I was certain that you were implying the Comey was going to come out with something that would put Hillary in jail.
too late to go back and see if i misread it, but i doubt it.
Another Comey Bombshell:
Trump said to Comey: “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go” or shut down the investigation of Flynn. That is enough of a bombshell for me.
My comment was not directed at you.
i knew that, but not unlike many people here, i think a few words of wisdom from me will change the world.
The world will not change if honest dialogue does not exist. Krasting changed the topic in order to confuse the dialogue.
Wow! So that’s how wars start. I assumed your comment was in reply to The Rage which appeared just before yours did.
I knew Krasting had changed his story since he told us about the bombshell, but I didn’t notice he had changed the subject here. I do not expect coherence from Krasting.
