Do not intend to repost from other sources other than my semi-functional head but this whole scenario scares me greatly.
A top former Department of Justice official warned that President Donald Trump has become a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States.
Amid revelations of Trump’s secretive relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, David Laufman—who formerly headed the DOJ’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section—told Rachel Maddow on MSNBC Monday night that Trump could no longer be trusted to protect the country.r
On Saturday, Laufman shared an article by The Washington Post on his Twitter page, which reported that Trump had gone to great lengths to hide the details of his meetings with Putin, even from senior figures within his own administration.
The president allegedly took possession of transcripts of his one-on-one meetings with the Russian leader, and told his interpreter not to repeat anything they had discussed.
“Now is the time for all good men (and women) to come to the aid of their country,” Laufman wrote alongside the link. When asked by Maddow why he decided to share the article, Laufman said, “It was a tipping point for me.
“I feel I have a moral obligation to speak up when I see action taken by the president or the members of the administration that—in my judgement—undermine the national security of the United States,” he said. “And the notion that the president of the United States would be trying to conceal the details of conversations with the leader of our principal foreign adversary was positively chilling.”
