Trump refuses to put his worldwide interest in a blind trust. Instead, his companies are to be run by his children -- all of whom are now to receive top secret security clearances
. They are thus going to receive information which can be used to maximize Trump's profits.
(None of the Trumplets have any experience in government or the military, of course.)
And yet there are still assholes out there who thought that Hillary's emails
were somehow unethical!
If you hit the link and scroll down, you'll see a comment offers which some insight as to how counterintelligence works:
Be assured that Donald will receive a false but very important-seeming piece of ultra-confidential misinformation. Our people will then watch for it to surface through our assets in Moscow. If it does, bad fears are confirmed - possibly the worst imaginable, that Trump himself initiated the leak.
I am sure that this has already happened. But if Obama won't do anything with it in the small amount of time he has left in office, all is for naught. Trump will make sure that the intelligence community is run by loyalists.
The great mistake that Democrats are making right now is the pretense that Donald Trump is just another president who won legitimately. Professor Sabl's infuriatingly wrong-headed piece in the WP
will one day be considered the crystallization of everything the Democrats did wrong in this time period.
Understand: Trump and Bannon are not Republicans. Trump and Bannon are fascists.
Fascism never has legitimacy. Fascists have no rights. Fascists are subhuman filth. You do not deal with fascism by debating over how best to win the next election.
If you are unwilling to use the F-word -- if you want to waste our time with otiose exercises in casuistry as you argue over definitions -- you are aiding the enemies of democracy.
