Not sure if this new item deserves a new thread, but here it is. Trey Gowdy and his House Oversight Committee is going to investigate WH aide Porter's employment and security clearances. He has subpoenaed documents from both Kelly & Wray. This could get very interesting unless this is a whitewash attempt by Gowdy Benghazi. Of course a similar investigation is going on in the Senate Intelligence Committee, so this may just be a me too. Either way the negative media attention is bound to make DTD go tweet tweet. Hopefully Kelly will depart and take HH with him.

Typical right wing shithead, doesn't get that you help those who NEED it, not those who have no need of it.

Have you always been this dumb?

I'm skeptical of Gowdy's intentions. I suspect that his plan is to provide Ryan and McConnell the opportunity to not have to answer questions on this issue. They can simply respond that Gowdy is on the case.

And now this:

NEW YORK (AP) — Stormy Daniels, the porn star whom President Donald Trump’s personal attorney acknowledges paying $130,000 just before Election Day, believes she is now free to discuss her alleged sexual encounter with Trump.

A manager for the adult film actress told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Daniels believes Trump’s lawyer invalidated a non-disclosure agreement by publicly discussing the payment.

This should be fun! Can’t wait for the response from Donny supporting hypocrites like Jerry Falwell Jr, et al.

Stormy should get the word Trump tattooed on her butt cheeks and claim Trump branded her. Imagine the marketing possibilities. Heck she may not even technically strip, just bend over wearing a short skirt.

I don't know how anyone can't believe what was reported. This is such typical trump behavior there's no reasonable reason to not believe it. Sadly it's not the worst he's come up with. The backtracking was enough for me and then when Kirstjen Nielsen couldn't remember what was a said. She lied from the beginning to end. The topper being that someone with the last name of Nielsen didn't know Norway was a predominantly white country. The lack of veracity through out her testimony was appalling. But that's being to kind. It was baldfaced lying.

Why does this administration and its sycophants remind me of The Jerk?

I wonder if Trump is just a moron who hasn't realized what his "advisors" are yet, a la Navin Johnson?
