    I can't believe you keep falling for this!
    What did your god say? Trump on the up-and-up? Why doesn't Trump clear his name since it would be trivial to do? Is he too busy getting outraised in Q2 by Biden?

    The white house press secretary simply speaks for the so-called president, so you can't list both as different officials.

    Your post reminds me of the old joke about the guy who writes in the margin of his speech notes, "Weak point; yell louder."

    Maybe the NEXT "scandal"?

    Did you hear that Trump takes two scoops of ice cream while only giving his journalist guests one scoop?

    So now, Nutty Nancy is bemoaning the 'fact' that this SHOULD have come to the President's attention, because it involved the deaths of young soldiers....

    Sounds like a tacit admission that Trump was NOT briefed.

    Another one bites the dust.

    As pointed out earlier, this exact same information would have been available to her and Shifty Adam Schiff, and yet they didn't know about it, either, so I'm not exactly sure who they're trying to point the finger at.

    This has nothing to do with Orangemanbad. Even the most charitable interpretation of events says

    1) The president ignored his PDB when the bounties were referenced
    2) The president continues to ignore the bounties now that the intel is solid (it's still solid but it used to too).
    3) We already have Republicans on record lying about this intel. Why might one lie about intel when the supposed truth (low quality intel which was not yet actionable) would have done wonders to dispel the scandal?

    This is the same story -- if you can find a single detail which doesn't fit (and I have never hung my hat on Trump having had an explicit oral briefing about this) it dispels the entire scandal. Not true.

    ETA: I mean, consider that Trump asked for Russia to be added back to the G7. You're saying he didn't double check that there was any intel which might argue against that move before making the request? At what point does "should have known" factor into the picture?

    Can you back up this statement that the intel would have already been available to them? What are these three briefings this week about if they already have all the info?
