    Trump appoints another unconfirmed loyalist stooge to head U.S. intelligence.

    Richard Grenell, the current ambassador to Germany has been named active DNI, active meaning unconfirmed, which is a tactic used by the dictator to position his stooges in positions of power without the need of Congressional confirmation.

    I appreciate your complete lack of unfair bias and well poisoning.

    This is a dictators tactic, an end run around the vetting process in which he can temporarily place any loyalist stooge he perfers in any position of power and then replace them with another while bypassing the Senates advise and consent role.

    You laser-like focus on just the facts without allowing personal opinion and loaded language to color your posts continues to be an inspiration.

    Demi was wondering if TDS patients were better, because no thread whining about Trump for a few days.
    . Bloomberg, by comparison, may be the candidate that most of the Founders hoped would arise: a wealthy patrician, much like them, who would use his vast resources and influence to defeat what he views as disruptive elements in the nationís political system.

    Well, well, well, now we know why the DNI, Maguire, was replaced by Trump toadie Grenell. Apparently National Intelligence briefed the House last week that the Russians were up to it again, interfering in the 2020 elections in order to aide Trump in his re-election bid. Gee, I wonder why the Russians are so intent on Trump remaining president? Any idea's, guys?

    Yeah, sure they did...

    The former official did not know what Pierson, who works for Maguire, said that set Trump off. The Post reported that the president "erroneously believed that she had given information exclusively to Rep. Adam B. Schiff, D-Calif., the committee chairman, and that the information would be helpful to Democrats if it were released publicly, the people familiar with the matter said."

    A committee official told the Post that wasn't true. The committee did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Gee, I wonder why you didn't provide a source for this?
