HEARING FROM former Vice President Dick Cheney, we’re reminded of just how far left President Loco is on foreign policy when compared with the Republican brand.
“There’s no question that there was a very serious effort made by Mr. Putin and his government, his organization, to interfere in major ways with our basic fundamental democratic processes,” Cheney said. “In some quarters, that could be considered an act of war. I would not underestimate the weight that we as Americans assign to Russian attempts to interfere with our process,” Cheney concluded. [Business Insider]
Incompetents like Rep. Devin Nunes have forgotten his party’s legacy. You know, the one George W. Bush set ablaze when he invaded and bombed Iraq.
Mr. Nunes has a problem. Explaining who cleared him into the White House so he could use a SCIF, a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, to review documents he couldn’t access on any House computer.
From Jake Tapper of CNN
Nunes went to the building because he needed a secure area to view the information, he told CNN. He said he didn’t believe the President nor any of his West Wing team were aware he was there, and the White House said Monday it learned of Nunes’ visit through media reports and directed any questions to the congressman.
A former government intelligence official told CNN on Monday that members of Congress, like the general public, must be cleared and escorted into facilities on White House grounds.
“Every non-White House staffer must be cleared in by a current White House staffer,” the official said. “So it’s just not possible that the White House was unaware or uninvolved.”
[…] A government official said Nunes was seen Tuesday night at the National Security Council offices of the Eisenhower building which, other than the White House Situation Room, is the main area on the complex to view classified information in a secure room.
The official said Nunes arrived and left alone.
