I was commenting on Trump today at work, joking (?) that he makes me think of "Chocfinger" Anthony Ward who interviewed me for a job quite a long time ago. I mean Ward's face is also lobster orange and while talking with him, you can't help thinking he just comes back from St Barthélemy where he spent 10 days in the sun banging imported high-end prostitutes.

it's looking increasingly certain that the fbi had a spy inside the trump campaign
About That FBI ‘Source’
Did the bureau engage in outright spying against the 2016 Trump campaign?

Real reason?

The US pulled out of Iran Nuclear Deal because it’s too broke

″[Trump], like King Cyrus before him, [color=#198fff]fulfilled the biblical prophecy of the godsworshipped by Jews, Christians and, yes, Muslims, that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state and that the Jewish people finally deserve a righteous, free and sovereign Israel.”[/color]

Rand Paul asks Haspel if she knows of any CIA surveillance of Trump
that's an excellent question from the best senator.
President Trump has promoted internally to get the new CIA head

Paul also asked if the CIA is aware of any efforts by the federal government to monitor any presidential candidates when they were traveling outside the United States and asked the CIA to lay out what circumstances would lead the agency to track presidential candidates. The New Yorker reported that former CIA Director John Brennan was briefed by British intelligence officials on communications between Trump's campaign and Russia, though it did not say how they were intercepted.
“I'm concerned there are reports that John Brennan, the former head of the CIA under President Obama, that he was cooperating with British intelligence to spy on the Trump campaign. This is a big deal," Paul said.

It is a big deal, and reminiscent of the abuse of power under LBJ, who illegally surveilled the Goldwater campaign using both the CIA and FBI.

never-trump richard painter, who is currently seeking the Dem nomination for the senate seat vacated by al franken in minnesota

Richard W. Painter @RWPUSA
What was the point of the Revolution if subjects of the British Crown get single payer health care and university education at a fraction of what it costs us and we are stuck with a President guilty of treason, bribery and other crimes, and a Congress unwilling to get rid of him?

It's a clear sign: Trump lost this.
Trump can veto, and then the courts can overrule that.
