    “the ongoing issues surrounding the declassification of documents”

    Congress has it’s priorities and the President has his. I am just glad PDJT is in the WH, otherwise HRC would be running roughshod over the Constitution and we would be told to eat dung.

    Need to get those judicial appointments in place before the arrests start.

    There needs to be a full-on “recess” of both houses of Congress over Christmas…
    So that PDJT can collect his Christmas Presents before the New Year…. MAGA

      Hey Mel – What part of the state are you in? What are you hearing about the Senate and House races in your neck of the woods? I’m in the “People’s Republic of” so I have no real perspective.

    Using leverage makes one a player in the game; I’m not so sure that’s a wise decision. There will be all sorts of questions about when did you know, what did you do, why didn’t you do…, you benefited here, they lost there, etc.

      This morning on Fox News, and a little later on Fox Business , the talking heads and their panel guests made it sound as if Rosenstein was PROBABLY just being sarcastic and the people who want him to quit are into a “stupid conspiracy theory” about taking out the President. Harris Faulkner tried to get in a small bit about “problems in the FBI” , but her attempt was quickly panned by a guest. Bottomline, no one would guess from the Rosenstein discussions that a major failed coup had taken place and many heads would roll. Meantime, there is gossip afoot that President Trump has a short list of four people to take over from Sessions, the prime suspect said to be Health and Human Services Secretary, Alex Azar. The other 3 potentials have also been confirmed by the Congress but all 4 would have to be confirmed again. There was no discussion about WHY Sessions would be replaced. It was if it’s just a given.

    Rosenstein should fire the special council mueller and then resign. He might walk after all is said and done.

    can someone explain how it is leverage? PDJT ordered the declassification of these documents on the night of the Emmy Awards which was 9/17/18, but they have not been declassified. Does PDJT have the power to declassify them or not? If not, then where is the leverage?

      The documents are declassified now. The DOJ/FBI is playing with declassified documents at this point.


    • testpointwp says:

      The leverage here is like a teeter totter. President Trump is on one side and a million foot-dragging, conniving, bitter, backstabbing bureaucrats are on the other. The fulcrum shifts slightly from day-to-day.

      My hope is that, one day, everything will be in place and those bureaucrats will go flying off the end of the board and President Trump will be sitting there with a big smile.

    I like Nunes a lot. He’s a good guy but given the events of the last two days he should just ask for a meeting over a cup of coffee with the President and see if he can get a heads-up concerning the current intrigues. maybe then he can quit having to constantly butt his head against a brick wall.
    Also, Has anyone else noticed that for the last couple weeks Devin has been answering questions amidst a sea of antique tractors? I know he is at the World Ag Expo, but… is he living there? Every remote interview he gives he is surrounded by these farm tractors. Does he have a part-time job greasing zerks or what? Doesn’t he have an office or a living room to talk from? I hope he has not been kicked out of his house.

      As POTUS is compiling leverage, Nunes has been one of a few stand up and dogged allies throughout. Trump would do well to have a sit down with Nunes. What Nunes continues to do is ask for information to validate the scenario he has personally constructed for public education for almost 2 years.

      As Trump may enjoy a sleaze ball for a pet, Nosey, allies are entirely more valuable.

      Stab, you’re post echoed my thoughts and saved mr from writing my own post re, the exact same questions.

      Assuming PDJT is deliberately slow-walking the declassification process through Horowitz until midterms so as to retain leverage on RR, I am curious why Nunes cannot request a 5 minute private one-on-one with POTUS to gain an understanding of the strategy.

      And I’m a bit concerned why POTUS is content to keep further angering one of his staunchest allies in the House and best defenders against Mueller and the Muh Russia BS. I watched this video twice. Nunes is genuinely pissed and isn’t acting.

      I “get it” that PDJT may be keeping Nunes in the dark about the leverage strategy, and letting Nunes get angry and do these interviews without knowing POTUS’ endgame, but from my humble eyes it seems – at least on the surface – a risky strategy on the President’s part.

        I fully agree with you gb. Nunes took the lead in doggedly fighting the good fight for president trump and I feel like he pulled the rug out from under nunes by reversing the declassification. Being from California, nunes is under attack and may lose his seat because of his determination to fight the evil against Trump. Most of the repubs from California try to keep their heads down, join the swamp and not makes waves. Nunes was brave and stood above the swamp, so now Trump needs to help him.

          Nunes is one of the very few honest representatives we have from CA. With Issa retiring it is even more critical that he keeps his seat in the House.

            I also am curious that President Trump hasn’t reached out to Nunes & the Freedom Caucus membership months ago.
            The President has shown time and time again that he is very transparent with the media concerning who he believes are his allies and who are his enemies. He bashes DOJ / Sessions occasionally on Nunes behalf but there seems to be no sense of a strategic process taking place.

          I see PDJT told the F&F interviewers Nunes deserves a Medal of Honor for what he has done. Message has been received by PDJT and he is responding.

      Your question made me look up the World Ag Expo and from what I could see it’s held annually in CA. Seems it was held in FEBRUARY 2018. So your question is a valid one. What’s he doing there in October? Maybe he rents some space there. The backdrop looks more like what you would expect to find in a farm state than in California.


    • MelH says:

      Nunes is fighting his evil opponents’ assertion that he is a no-account ignoring his constituents need for water for their crops in favor of running the Iowa Ranch which is also part of the family Dairy farm holdings, which is NOT true. God can’t fix the water problem that is the crux of the matter in the Central Valley and has been a problem there for 4 generations I know about. California and Arizona land of many artesian wells was sold to the Saudis for growing water-thirsty-alfalfa for their huge herds of HOLY cows. They ship the alfalfa to their home which is also water-deficient. Whoever thought California Agriculture would have to suffer because the Saudi cattle need alfalfa?

    I feel for Nunes. He is an honest man.

    I really wonder that the FISA law was reauthorized. I think Rand Paul was right to say that it was too prone to abuse.

      The leverage game only works if Trump expects to lose big in November and he’s holding out for when he needs to trade what he has to Democrats, or use it to combat/distract from their Congressional investigations. Nothing else makes sense.


  12. Non=combative. says:

    I am having a difficult time understanding this ‘leverage’ angle or the ‘waiting for federal judges’ notion. My opinion is that every republican candidate in tight races need the declassification of info to bolster their campaign of 1) transparence, 2) corrupt/illegal actions of Obama era democrats, and most importantly having raw meat to entice independent and moderate voters.


    • Howie says:

      Even though declassed this evidence will be called part of a new or existing, eternal, never ending, ‘ongoing investigation’. Same old story, same old rock and roll.

    If PDJT does NOT DeClass the FISA stuff it will now do him tremendous harm.
    two reasons >
    1. He promised transparency… promises made, promises kept.
    2.It would be a big betrayal of people like Nunes, Gaetz, Meadows etc. who have fought tirelessly to expose this and to DEFEND HIM.

    PDJT has no choice now but to DeClass FISA abuse OR he will be very damaged in his supporters eyes.

    I for one would lose faith in him.

    All these people here complaining about not understanding the leverage part of this, and losing patience with the length of the process –

    Has anyone considered the Truth of Benghazi? There were Republicans and Democrats both who knew about the entire Libya operation from the start. It was not possible to out all the Libya/Benghazi participants without causing a Constitutional crisis.

    The same applies here. Plus, Pres Trump has not yet finished what Pres Trump himself said was his first and primary concern – making things better for the Forgotten Man. Drain The Swamp came much later, well after MAGA and the Forgotten Man.

    Please, tell me how causing a Constitutional crisis before accomplishing the main goals is a plus? Do you really think anyone, anyone at all, will work with Pres Trump after Pres Trump creates a crisis in our gubmint?

    Go back and read some of Sundance’s posts from 16 June 2015 on, and perhaps you might understand the Trump Plan.
    Meanwhile, patience, grasshopper. Wax on, wax off.

  16. I agree POTUS’ gathering and holding leverage in this context can create a perceived two-edged sword. Doubters will suspect him of acclimating to the game and becoming a player. No more Mr. Outsider. At the same time I have to think that, given his uncanny instincts, Trump is very aware of how it can appear to his base. Thus he must have something very big planned to risk that perception so close to midterms, something that will wipe all doubt from his supporters’ minds. I’m wired as a skeptic, not a cheerleader. With Antifa behind Door #2 we’re obligated at the moment to trust.

      We have no choice but to wait and see. I was watching Fox and Friends this morning when President Trump called in. He was questioned about Nunes requests for documents release and the answer was not forthcoming.

      Nunes looks unhappy about the document release and I can understand why. Clearly something is going on but what? And, don’t tell me about leverage because I am not buying.

    Laws are for little people. Paying taxes is for suckers. Government retains power no matter who you vote for.

    There is something more to the question of POTUS being wiretapped with foreign leaders now. Wray wouldn’t answer Paul’s question and Nunes didn’t answer it here either. Are all POTUS conversations with foreign leaders taped and perhaps that’s something that is not be be acknowledged publicly anyway? Curious.

    JUST IN: President Trump’s Lawyers Preparing Written Answers to Mueller’s Questions

    Sekulow previously said he’s prepared to take Mueller all the way up to the Supreme Court if he were to issue a presidential subpoena, which would be an advantage for the President now that he has cemented a conservative majority with the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.


  21. MelH says:

    YAAAY TEAM! There IS a plan! Any one of us could write MORE than a hundred pages just about all the reasons there never should have been a SC in the first place and how illegal that was and choosing Mueller and Rosenstein was illegal too.
