When Trump met with the Russians a day after firing Comey as the FBI director he is alleged to have revealed classified info to the Russian obtained from an ally country. This info is said to have put many undercover agents in peril as well as causing our allies to not trust the US with classified information. What are your thoughts if this turns out to be true?

Wonderful answer, Jean. Patriots are still around although sometimes they stay in the background until needed. I'm not religious, but I cannot see what Xtians saw in Trump. PT Barnum was right, especially in the case of phony Xtians.
This is your idea of the best answer. Not a single fact, and just and emotional rant. Del if u wish, but really, the best?
fantastic, jean! you said it all. and there is now a growing movement; one person, one vote. a true majority. we were robbed....again. lets make sure it never happens again.
His supporters don't see it as ignorance because they are ignorant too. :) They, like Trump, think they are smart.
That saying, "they are too ignorant to know that they are stupid", rings true for many of them. If 45 ate turds in front of a camera, there would be a run on the turd market, and high praise for him being so smart.
I agree, Lela. It's like a bad spy novel where you know the crook right from the get go. It remains to be seen if they're any from the right patriotic enough to stand up to their party's #1 man. I doubt even this screw-up will do the job.
their own words that they used against clinton can be applied to them now. but none of them has any courage, nor any conviction. just partisan loyalty. even mccain/graham. soft as egg yolks on the inside.
This is cherishable from someone who thinks the FBI works for the Judiciary and that there are four branches of government. Ignorance?! Wow! Inconceivable that you 3 folks think you know more than POTUS when you do not even know how many branches.
Who cares what you think, Eric! You voted for the moron, didn't you? Now with a special counselor we'll see who was involved in colluding with the Russians. You still think Flynn will slide?
Eric, obviously you did not read my comment. There are THREE branches of government. Please look up your facts before insulting me again.
I am sorry perhaps you just signed onto the 4 branches notion by not taking exception to it but you clearly said that FBI was under the judiciary branch -- at least admit you did and move on.
i think he was insulting me on that one. but you see how the alt right works? we insult trump, they insult us.the politics of personal destruction. they still use it. and real nasty meanness under faux christian front. never met one not like this.
That's because the FBI is an investigatory arm of the judicial branch. Like I said, Look It Up!
Eric, you're not gaining anything by repetitive comments. Try taking up for Trump, or at least give us some Faux News talking points.
My Goodness Austinstar. You really will argue that the FBI is part of the judiciary. That is so far Mexican and French Napoleonic stuff that it is frightening. FBI is part of the executive branch beholding to the POTUS. End of story.
Broken record, Eric.
I consider myself to be an intelligent person with a large degree of common sense. As a moderate Trump supporter, I agree that he seems to create his own problems to a degree but he deserves more of a chance than the left-wing liberals are offering.
What chance should we give him. Curt? Until he tells Russia all of our classified info? Or until he makes all of our allies afraid to share intelligence with us? His lies will be his downfall and those who trusted him will wake up.
100% Truth and God are broken records. Why even bother with the truth, so boring! I feel like the guy at the cocktail party that looks like Austinstar. Nobody listens. they take one look at us and dismiss what we have to say.
Curt, would you hire Trump to build a casino for you? Or any busuness for that matter. What kind of chance does a 70 y/o man with current or approaching dementia need to be given? He is menatally unfit to be president. Temper tantrums and lies always
Curt do not even respond as Autstinstar believes the DOJ is headed by the judiciary like Libya and that there are four branches of government. We are dealing with folks who did not pass the citizen test about legislature, Executive and Judiciary.
Eric, I have reported you for insulting me again. Told you I was tired of it. Do not presume to believe and repeat lies about me. You do not have a clue.
Eric, no one said we had 4 branches of government. You've run that into the ground on these comments so give it up. Care to contribute something useful for a change? Give excuses for DT, blame his behavior on Hillary, just anything different.
OK Randy I will leave that alone after giving the quote from Yes Dear ; "the point is,they are supposed to be 4 equal branches"
So to the point now. Allies give information to be passed through an intermediary. Israel and Russia do not exchange.we do
That's why DT screwed up so bad, Eric. No ally wants their info shared with Pootie without clearing it with them first. DT doesn't read the intel reports even when they condense them into a single page with bullet points. He's too lazy to be troubled
eric, you stated theyve been investigating trump for 2 years. as you see fit to mock me for my words, im asking you humble me with your superior intelligence. what 2 year investigation?
There is a standard SS (secret service) hard core vet of Presidential candidates. It would make you blush. They just could not find something bad on Trump. He made vetting and then some funking vetting by Obama. The dude is clean.
really? so all that hardcore vetting applied to obama?? and STILL we had trump insisting he was born in kenya....obviously trump doesnt think its hardcore. and is this the 2 yr investigation you are speaking if? the ss?

thats a dam good question.its like 9/11. or the invasion of iraq. feels like we are under a spell. this is treason. russia hacked, they knew in aug 2016 or something. "oh well, russia hacked our election. ho hum" say what? trump is obstructing. yawn?
Theophanes, you hit the nail on the head with this answer. I don't care which party one is from, this is simply unacceptable! But then, those who chose him are very reluctant to admit they were taken in by this snake oil salesman.
yes,well,seems everyone else is lying but trump.and the majority of citizens do not want a wall,do not want saudi to make our weapons,do not want our healthcare cut,or retro lock-em-up enforcement.our election was mobbed. literally.but its backfiring
A "SURREAL Darkest NIGHTMARE" of Biblical Proportions in the form of an "EVIL Huckster" named Trump is upon us ~ But GOOD always DEFEATs EVIL, it's just a matter of time now ~ The CIA, FBI & the RESISTANCE must CONTAIN him until he's REMOVED
Hopefully so, AP. The sooner we get this buffoon out of office the safer I'll feel. I've never see such a disastrous presidency in all my years and never expected for people following him who are so brainwashed by his many lies.
Just knowing he is a sexual deviant should have been enough. They call him a Christian? I just want to vomit. Everyone that voted for him is getting rammed.
"Ignorance is bliss" should be the motto of Trumps fans. It surely isn't "Make America great again." LOL!
No, it's more like "Make Russia Great Again". Or the Nazis, whichever.
And where are all of the Trump apologists who normally weigh-in in his defense? Even his base is wondering what idiotic move he'll make next. And yes, those self-proclaimed Xtians put him in office. It is indeed a pukable situation!
honestly?theyre fine with it. they are fine that russia hacked our gvt cause it got hillary.they dont care what trump does cause hes not hillary.and then they demand we compromise for them.gtfoh. this is war.for america.kkk knows it,they should too
Yes Randy you and Austinstar should be calling others ignorant and dumb based on "Eric, no Trump is not the boss of the FBI. They are Judiciary, Trump is Executive" I guess you guys are really proving me ignorant.
the point is,they are supposed to be 4 equal branches.trump acts like judge, jury and executioner.and wants you to give breaks to his cronies.check out flynn intel group.vlad has lots of boyfriends here.not really.who knows what drives a traitor?
And now we have one of you declaring that there are four equal branches of Gov. in USA. No - FBI is not part of Judiciary and we have 3 branches of Gov. in the US. You folks are really out there. 4 branches of Gov and the courts run the cops. Really!
whatever!im including prez,house, senate and supreme court.prez not supposed to overule all the rest.hes not a ceo of a company,he works for every single citizen here.and guess what? hes not.far as i can see he works for some dude named donald trump
Eric, you are really starting to annoy me. I never said there were 4 branches of government. You live in the alternative universe, I guess. Learn how to look up FACTS!
I am sorry you are the one that said FBI was a part of the Judiciary. And you simply supported Yes Dear when she said there are 4 branches of Gov. Hold yourself to a higher standard.
standard? cant get any lower than trump. leave that high horsee where it belongs: in the history books w the last time you had a decent candidate....eisenhower.
Standard protocol, ignore that you two do not know what branch the FBI is under and ignore that you do not know how many branches of Gov. there are in the USA.
Really sad but keep throwing reused scritpted headlines for fact.
lol!the whole world lies but trump, huh? truth:trump is a lifelong criminal.he used his criminal connects to steal this election.he owes putin his life.he did rape a 13yr old girl with Epstein.he did fraud people out of money,& he launders mob mo
Eric, do you even know how to look things up? I know it's much easier to come here and insult all of us here, but seriously, do some research first before insulting people.
I am starting to get quite interested in failure. The complete Washington establishment from Bush to McCain and all Democrats and seemingly not all but most the press, foreign and domestic simply cannot come up with a smoking gun after two years?
2 years?i thought it was july of 2017. you know of something else?or are you hyperbolating to make trump the victim? surely you heard him threaten hillary during campaign? dish it,take it.and that goes for you,too.can
you prove 2 yr investigation?
Excuse me? I get lost here when discussing roles. Fine if you have the backing get a special prosecuter, Trump cannot tell her what to do. FBI are employees of the CEO POTUS. He has every right to tell the director (FBI) what to do or fire her.
Yes Hollie, Comey kept notes of his meeting with Trump when the Orange One asked him to drop the Russian investigation into Flynn's mess-ups. Said notes are evidence in a court of law. Bye, Donnie!
Eric, no Trump is not the boss of the FBI. They are Judiciary, Trump is Executive. Now, what's the third branch of government? Do you even know? Hint - it's Legislative.
hes toast. according to mensch, his presidency ended may 9....the day he fired comey. she claims hatch is being prepped to take over, since all of trumpville is corrupt up to their eyeballs. some of them are doing time...and it deserves to be trump.
I hope you are right. 45 is the worst "president" in history. He wanted the title of King, but he never has and never will understand the constitution and the way govmt works.
yeah. he understands "gimme". gimme praise. gimme power. gimme adulation. gimme freedom to do what i and my partners in crime want. gimme gimme gimme. ask not what your country can do for you dumpy! and your foreign friends. at usa taxpayer expense!
It's more like "The Madness of King-Wannabe Donald." He actually believes as President he can do as he wishes without fear of repercussions. It's a good thing he didn't have to start a business with his own assets.
Apparently, 45's Trumpeteers also think the King can do whatever he wants. Are they so delusional that they think Trump can fire the entire Judicial and Intelligence branches of our Democracy?
and now he tells comey reporters should be jailed. i guess thats fine with them, too..as long as its people they dont like. who jails reporters?? think about it. jailing people comes next...and we're already number one in that dpt. tin pot territory
Austinstar you put all of these comments in perspective with; "Eric, no Trump is not the boss of the FBI. They are Judiciary, Trump is Executive." The courts direct the law investigation and enforcement? That is Mexico not the USA. You are critical?
Look it up, Eric. The courts are part of the Judiciary branch. And so is the investigative arm of that branch.
1st there is no letter. 2nd there is no memo. 3rd there are notes that have not been released. Best info on the matter is that POTUS suggested Comey was an idiot for pursuing it. But made no orders.
I'm curious Eric, where did you hear there was no memo? What are you watching for your info because you spout Fox News talking points.
Sorry, Eric. Yes, Comey kept extensive memos of his meetings. I'm sure they are signed and dated and filed appropriately. The memos have already been subpoenaed- from both Comey and the Executive branch. Along with any other info. Special prosecutor!
Randy, Yes Dear and Austinstar have stated or supported the concepts that FBI is part of the judiciary, that there are 4 branches of government and that those who do not believe that must be Trumpsters. You 3 are awesome. Very intelligent!
nobody said that anybody who doesnt think so are trumpsters. and you can insult peoples intelligence to your hearts content. at least we had the good sense not to elect an egomaniacal gasbag who shares classified intel w a sworn adversary.
May 3rd, Comey was asked if anyone asked him to stop the investigation. He said no. If this memo exists, then the context may not suggest that the president asked him to stop the investigation. Otherwise did Comey perjure himself when asked that?
Dave, the wording Comey used in the memo was DT asking him to "let it go." This can be construed to mean several things depending on how you look at it. We'll soon find out now.
Very exciting stuff.

Coercion code comes from Christ's theology otherwise a bribe- which don't fit.
wheres the 2 year investigation eric?
Are we really suggesting that HBO was so incompetent? He could not with the NSA, FBI and CIA dig up bad crap on Trump? Incredible that a man so honored could not find indictable offense of such an idiot politically with no ties to our security forces
Look up the statute for Misprison of a Felony. And apply it to Comey's alleged memo, And Dave is right, about the May 3 Comey testimony.
BTW the DOJ is part of the Executive Branch
umm,obama did have crap on trump. thats why he safeguarded the trumprussia facts all throughout the gvt so trump couldn't get in there and delete it all. btw, he and sessions broke into comey computer, sent info to vlad. this guy is so dirty,lifelong
so, getting a bj in the oval office is illegal?? cause thats what they went after clinton for. know what i think? in a republican gvt, they make up the law. no integrity whatsoever. and they steal elections.thats why they just do what they please.
Scott, you're probably correct as the evidence is still coming in on Trump's meeting with Comey. But why do you think DT asked both Sessions and the deputy AG to leave the room before asking Comey to let up on Flynn's investigation?
Hey Scott show us a report of a real quote from Gergen. I bet you that you cannot show a quote with a reference and disclosure.
why dont you just google it and see for yourself? then google trumprussia....holy toledo. i only use twitter, and thats a goldmine. im just curious that none of you seem to know trumps history... russia is huge. &you all dont know. odd.
I just did Google it and there is not one quote. All statements from those with no knowledge first hand of even 2nd. You are acting and speaking of facts that do no exist.
what do you have, trump google? i googled "gergen on trump", and there are numerous sites of same video! gergen, "i think we're in impeachment territory"....which commandment is thou shalt not lie for trump? lmc bible, 2017 edition.
Randy, I agree that DT asking the others to leave the room makes him look guilty.
Eric, I saw and heard Gergen say it on TV, and many credible media sources reported it. No need to deny something so easy to prove.
On what fact basis is Gergen basing his pronouncement of impeachment? Has he seen memos, tapes or other documentary evidence? No question that Trump has behaved in a peculiar manner, but impeachment seems a bit early at this stage.
Lying was the crime. POTUS has not lied.
Of course he wouldn't lie Eric, although he told 485 documented lies the first 100 days in office. Where do you get your facts from, Fox News?
ohhh, so you can go after a us prez for getting serviced in the white house, but hands off team trump and russia? now we see that trump and putin were trying to set up a back-channell to communicate out of eyesight. sessions lied to congress...AND!?
I have never seen such incompetence at the Democratic Congressional group and the Senatorial group. Allegations flying but not one "chargeable" notion in about 24 months. Assume bad. Your idiots cannot find it? Total incompetence if true.
thats really the problem right wingers have...they think they are so superior that they can do anything.years investigating hillary,accusing obama..i guess they were "idiots", cause they found nothing.trump is guilty walking in door.how'd he get in?
yes, hes a real pos. hes cruel, vindictive, and self-pitying. after all the people he's drug through the mud, he cries the biggest tears if you criticize him. hes just cruel. and sadistic, because he enjoys it. imo
Yes Shyron, Donnie is a low class poor little rich boy who cannot seem to get his way about things. It couldn't happen to a more deserving piece of slime.
Yes and his big critic Yes Dear thinks there are 4 branches of Gov. We are not dealing with bright educated people here. I wonder what you think the fourth branch is --- CNN?
Eric, peace be with you ...
eric, i explained it to you. i mean house, senate, prez and supreme court. do you not accept that? or is it your godly duty to come around and belitte fellow hubpages members? can no one dislike dumpy without the wrath of the faux christians?
The definition of treason - "the betrayal of one's country by attempting to kill the sovereign [not applicable] or overthrow the government." I have seen no proven action on his part in which he is actively attempting to overthrow our government.
It's a bit early in the investigation to know that for sure, Curt. The look into Trumps taxes and monetary ties to Russia should tell Muller something about Trump's claims of innocence.
of course they overthrew the gvt. hillary won. and i mean won, even mi, wi., pa. votes were suppressed. votes were crosschecked, ballots werent counted. the exit polls were not wrong. the surprise was real...cause this election was hacked!
This is what many of us see, Peter. DT has no tact nor knowledge how to obtain such. His staff and cabinet are terrified of what he's going to say or tweet next. And yes, DT wants to be either king or a tyrant. He'd prefer the latter of course.
Such naive lack of understanding means that one has not read the USC code sections pertaining to the issues at hand. Evening news rules your perception and a peaceful enlightenment is not in your future.
hmm. which code states its ok for a president to share secrets w an adversary?one who has just stolen and released personal emails from a us citizen?i may be stupid, but that seems like an act of war to me. and the gd prez is on the side of the enemy
Hooray for you, Ralph. You get the pleasure of finding out the person you voted for is a criminal much worse than you ever thought Hillary and Obama were. And your use of "fairly elected" is simply a joke at this point.
Also funny "as the economy grows under Trump when it floundered under Obama". I don't hate U or Trump - feel sorry 4 all of us bcuz of your erroneous perceptions. Trump shouldn't have fired Comey when he did. His inexperience keeps biting him.
actually, im furious that putin hacked our election, and none of you so-called patriots seem to care! you also forget that hillary got more votes than him. and his approval rate is in toilet. we dont want fascist usa. get used to it!
20 months and millions of dollars and still not any wrongful connection. We hope Mueller who is now loved will soon be vilified by the same folks.
It doesn't have anything to do with hate, although all you Godly, lying Christians keep twisting facts we have known for weeks. They wanted to "lock her up" and acted better than anyone else. The R's have no shame or morals. Trump is a criminal.
The President can not communicate any classified information that will place any US citizen in harms way.
he already botched a raid in yemen, and 2 us citizens were killed. how come no hearings?? and the israelis have said he put their agents in serious harms way. and, they will think twice about sharing intel with usa again. all for putin.
Hey Ralph, I agree with u of course (no surprise here)! As far as I know there isn't a shred of evidence against Trump, just assumptions! And u brought up a great point, " why aren't the leakers your target?"
cauze we dont watch fox news.fox ignores team trump lies,focuses on the heros who expose them.if trump is innocent,he should welcome investigation.his whole life hes paid his way out of trouble.not this time.you dont eff over US gubmint with a foe.
John you just gave me another quote I can give Randy that he will hate.
The POTUS cannot do what? He cannot declare war? (funding?) He cannot risk American lives? Boy Lincoln should have been hung not assassinated!
John and Eric, can either of you guarantee no Americans will be put in harm's way by DT's loose lips. No telling what effect his bragging will have on future security of the US and our allies. DT is ignorant of political policy.
Ralph, the POTUS CAN classify info, but he's already too late. I don't hate him. Fox fed into all the hatred, it's all they had.
You may be savvy about dating, but you know nothing--in that you are similar to Trump--about intelligence rules. This boasting pretender probably cost us an important source of info, not to mention, probably some lives as well. Take up for the moron!
trump didnt deny it. he says as president, he can do anything he wants. but hes not supposed to aid and abett an enemy, and so he fails. bigly. dear donald, "youre fired". git yer treasonous family and high tail it outta there!
Ok, why is the White House now refusing to release transcripts of the Russia meeting to our intelligence groups? They let the Russian press in, but not American press. WTF? Our intel agencies need to know!
1+1=2. "i exploit you, still you love me. i tell you one and one makes three"--cult of personality, living colour
Yes Dear this is wonderful. You can't add up 3 branches of gov. You state there are 4 and you are giving someone a math lesson? Very strange where you come from.
nope.common sense.as fbi guy said, russian active measures worked,cause president used them.sessions,flynn, page all talked to kislyak on trumps behalf...gop platform was changed for russia. trump eo allows drilling in arctic: putin wants. 1+1=2.
This is all irrelevant as you think there are four branches of government. A US educated 3rd grader knows there are 3 branches but you do not and yet you claim to be smarter than POTUS? You in your lack of education is the breakdown not the president
NO, stop hiding behind this "fake news" concept. Trump is a real estate agent with no transferable skills. He had to answer to no one running a family company. Melania doesn't even want to be tainted with his lies for Barron's sake. She stays away.
honestly?yes,i do think im smarter than dumpy.i think my 11 yr old is smarter that dumpy.i KNOW hilllary is,shed never be a puppet for putin.and fake news is all the trumpites have.because ole donald can never give a straight answer.carnival barker
"That would be like asking a baby not to cry. At least the baby has good reason...."
I agree, this phrase sums up their mindset( mind?), especially when you're telling them the truth that they're low information minds can't bare!
Wba, gee, if only you could use correct grammar, we might be able to understand.
It's "their" and "bear". Not They're (they are) and Bare (naked).

Sharon, are you aware of two other Intel officials who were also asked to stop the Russian Probe?
And yes, DT is able to declassify intel, but it doesn't mean he should, especially intel entrusted to him from our allies.
brennan: "with every last ounce of devotion to this country, resist!"
Randy - I am aware of the intel officials. It does get deeper, I will admit. I watched the congress this morning question Daniel Coats, and he would not comment on the investigation, and would not admit the story was true. Very confusing.
Some things Coates and other intel guys cannot talk about in public, Sharon. They're trying to protect the investigations going on by doing so. No telling what was said in the private interview, though we may find out something eventually.
Randy, I am aware that their has been an unconfirmed source that made this allegation, and that no one from Intel has admitted to this allegation. I guess it will come out in the investigation if true? I just don't buy into allegations.
