All of it 60. You have two guys writing competing memos- not completing an investigation mind you just writing memos- that skew and spin their point of view in order to discredit the investigation that THEY are supposed to be conducting.
You have a guy who has beat his wife sit in the White House without a clearance having access to classified info with people trying to double talk their way out of it. This after busting the other parties balls about taking money from someone accused of sexual misconduct. And his former senator employer and the chief of staff make statements about how much character this cat has and then change their statements the next day.
The swamp is alive and well
Now we want to have a parade. A friggin parade so we can look like North Korea. You can't make it up

Rob Porter, who in his capacity as White House Staff Secretary had responsibility on a daily basis for bringing important documents, including Top Secret documents, to the President's attention. The FBI has denied the security clearance required by his position based on credible allegations by both of his ex-wives of violent domestic abuse.

These allegations were initially ignored/dismissed by Chief of staff John Kelly, who very recently vouched for Porter as a man of "true honor and integrity" despite having been made aware by the FBI of the substantial allegations against his immediate subordinate.

A retired Four Star General, Kelly is a man who served this country with distinction in for many years. He and his wife suffered the ultimate sacrifice in losing their son in the service of our country. His actions in this and other recent controversies have done anything but distinguish him further.

Not unlike Captain Renault in Casablanca, with knowledge that photo evidence of the facial injuries inflicted on one of the ex-wives was about to become public, Kelly suddenly decided he was "shocked" to learn of the allegations. And Porter was abruptly shown the door.

But why worry about an individual that has access to the nation's most important secrets being vulnerable to blackmail...and all that could entail. We've got a big military parade in the offing to entertain the Man Child in the White House.

Another day another chuckle. Good thing we have that friggin hotline for veterans maybe a few will bitch about the travel program. And it only took a month for the administration to say the tax cut isn't going to balance out after wasting all that time before the vote trying to convince people that it would. Looks like the swamp is alive and well.

Is this the new "travel program" open to all we vets?
The Veteran Affairs secretary’s Euro trip scandal, explained....

https://www.vox.com/2018/2/14/170130...l-travel-trump

(from the linked piece)
Shulkin justified the travel as in support of the VA’s mission. But the report documented only three and a half days of meetings and other official events during a nine-day trip that cost at least $122,334. According to the report, Shulkin’s chief of staff Vivieca Wright Simpson doctored an email to create the justification for the VA to subsidize travel for Shulkin’s wife, Merle Bari, whose flight cost $4,300.

There was another charge of almost $4,000 for a "parking overage".


In a hearing today before the House Committee on Veterans Affairs a visably shaken Shulkin, who admitted that "the optics look bad", now claims someone "hacked" the email account of his Chief of Staff to "doctor" the email in order to justify his wife's luxurious travel. (It's always the coverup that gets them!)

But being a stand up guy, Shulkin offered to pay back at least some of the money he's been caught stealing from tax payers.

Just another day "Draining the Swamp", Trump Style.

"I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon," Trump told governors meeting at the White House to discuss school safety.

So speaks the coward who sought and received 5 deferments during the war in Vietnam.

You really CAN'T make this shit up!

I've laid off him for a long time but you just absolutely cannot make this up. There is not a lower life person in our country than this president. First he specifically goes against his staff in releasing a statement on McCain's death. Then he absolutely disrespects him and every veteran by raising the flag that had been lowered to half staff. Then he doesn't have the balls to stand for his actions and he bows to the pressure and raises the flag. Donald Trump is a patriotic American like a pedophile priest is a good Christian. piece o crap.
Sorry for the rant but you are on the misc board.

Trump demonstrates on an almost daily basis that, despite his considerable height and moderate obesity, he may be the smallest person in the country. He had steadfastly resisted pressure from within the White House to at least act like a decent adult in the recognizing the passing of a widely admired man he disliked. But he reportedly caved in response to complaints from Amvets and the American Legion, representing millions of vets, which had voiced anger at the shameful way he was behaving toward a highly honored one of their own.

Given Trump's childish and ultimately cowardly actions with respect to John McCain's death, the irony of Trump's accusing the protesting NFL players of disrespecting the flag is not lost on veterans who, unlike the craven Trump, actually stepped up when given an opportunity to sacrifice in representing our flag.
