Schiff: Trump Thinking He Can Declassify Without a Process Shows How Dangerous He Is

25 Sep 2022 ~~ By Pam Key

Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that former President Donald Trump claiming a president can declassify information by thinking about it showed how dangerous he is to the national security of the United States.
Last week on Fox News, Trump said, “There doesn’t have to be a process, as I understand it. You know, there’s different people who say different things. As I understand, there doesn’t have to be. If you’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying, ‘It’s declassified.’ Even by thinking about it.


Commentary:

The fact that Schiff thinks the elected President must bow and scrape before unelected bureaucrats to beg permission to declassify shows how dangerous Schitt is.
Trump signed off on a STANDING ORDER that allowed him to do just that.

Craig Spence's name came to national prominence in the aftermath of a June 28, 1989, article in The Washington Times identifying Spence as a customer of a homosexual escort service being investigated by the Secret Service, the District of Columbia Police and the United States Attorney's Office for suspected credit card fraud. The newspaper said he spent as much as $20,000 a month on the service. He had also been linked to a White House guard who has said he accepted an expensive watch from Spence and allowed him and friends to take late-night White House tours.[6]

Spence entered a downward spiral in the wake of the exposé, increasingly involving himself with call boys and crack,[7] and culminating in his arrest on July 31, 1989 at the Barbizon Hotel on East 63rd Street in Manhattan for criminal possession of a firearm and criminal possession of cocaine.[8]

Months after the scandal had died down, and a few weeks before Spence was found in a room of the Boston Ritz-Carlton Hotel, he was asked who had given him the "key" to the White House. Michael Hedges and Jerry Seper of The Washington Times reported that "Mr. Spence hinted the tours were arranged by 'top level' persons", including Donald Gregg, national security adviser to Vice President George H. W. Bush at the time the tours were given.[7]

When pressed to identify who it was who got him inside the White House, Spence asked "Who was it who got [long-term CIA operative] Félix Rodríguez in to see Bush?", agreeing that he was alluding to Gregg.[7]

Gregg himself dismissed the allegation as "absolute bull", according to Hedges and Seper. "It disturbs me that he can reach a slimy hand out of the sewer to grab me by the ankle like this," he told the reporters. "The allegations are totally false."[7]

The latest on this board is the assertion that Trump never did accuse the FBI of planting documents. That is, at least the claim has been made by one of the Trump crazies!

Was that just another attempt to revive a dead dog with blowing smoke up it's ass?

The idea that Trump declassified all these documents is worse than if he had stolen them in the first place.

I don’t see how you guys can’t understand that. These are secrets vital to national security. They’re classified for a reason.

Another Shits lie. Declassification was purposely created in a fashion that Presidents could do this Without having to run it by others

Um, remember when he was supposed to have "nuclear documents"? (Which supposedly the FBI waited 8 months to take back.)

That whopper died pretty quickly, huh?

But keep fallin' for the FAKE NEWS, they're pretty hard up for eyeballs lately.

Did you feel the same when Hillary was caught transmitting classified material via E-mail, or was caught with classified and secret document stored on her illegal server?

And immediately you decide to change the subject.

Once again, the idea that Trump declassified national security information is worse than if he had just taken it. Declassifying information makes it public and that would harm national security.

What about Schiff lying that he saw the evidence Trump and Putin colluded to steal 2016?

He fucking said it…we never saw what he claimed he saw.

Is it dangerous for a member of Congress to lie to try to get the POTUS impeached?

Isnt that an insurrection?

Bovine Scatology!

Remember when Democrats (correctly) pointed out that the crooks in the Bush Jr. administration would consistently use "National Security!" as an excuse whenever they didn't want something talked about or objected to?

Now, the Democrat Party IS the "National Security" Party. Their networks constantly showcase tools from the FBI and CIA - some known for lying under oath to Congress I might add.

Funny how the Party that once boasted they were the "counter culture" now kowtows to the spooks in the Security state - and promotes war, division, pestilence and hate.

How far the Dems have fallen. And all because Orange Man Rad triggered their sensibilities.

Bless their little black hearts.

Pretty weak doc.

What do you think it means to declassify something? I means that it becomes public information. You mean to tell me you're fine with Trump making these documents public?

Safe Spacers are SS and of course Nazis also had their SS.
Lying has become so ingrained into libs abandonment of reality that they can’t differentiate the true from the false

There's a larger discussion about use of national security to block transparency.

That's not what we are dealing with here. Trump had little transparency.

Please tell us exactly what is in these documents that would threaten our National Security.

And be very, very specific.

Oh wait, you don't know and are just playing the sucker for the Deep State that's been trying to get rid of Trump since day one for 7 friggin' years.

Fongool!

Would you say that nothing in these documents could threaten national security?

Seems pretty unlikely.
