#1 Senator Warner is the Vice Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI)

Certainly hope the good Senator had no plans to share anything sensitive with foreign sources, those without a valid US security clearance, or anyone without a 'need to know.'

This could get ugly. Oh WAIT !

#2 We already have the communication as if it is carved in stone. We have every conversation there.

Every one ever.
And they are corrupt as HELL.

Just letting you know that.

#5 Throughout the text exchanges, Warner seemed particularly intent on connecting directly with Steele without anyone else on the Senate Intelligence Committee being in the loop.

Not very collegial now is it ?

#6 Waldman offered last March to connect Warner with Steele to discuss the infamous dossier. The article states that “secrecy seemed very important to Warner” and that the senator “seemed particularly intent on connecting directly with Steele without anyone else on the Senate Intelligence Committee being in the loop ― at least initially.”

But as the Fox News story eventually acknowledges, Waldman informed the intelligence committee about the messages months ago, and the communication appears to fall in line with Warner’s duties on the intelligence committee.

Rubio pointed this out in his tweet Thursday.

“Sen. Warner fully disclosed this to the committee four months ago,” he wrote on Twitter, with a link to the article. He continued to note that the text messages have had “zero impact on our work.”


Note the timeline. That's 7 months Warner kept quiet. He eventually saw that he would get caught.

#7 Just in from Mark Warner's office. "I did not have sex with that Putin".

Yes you did Marky, yes you did.

#9 Perhaps the good senator just wanted to talk horses. There's a lot of horses in Northern Virginia you know.

Almost there, Besoeker, he wanted to talk horse product.

#11 Poor Marco. He's the sort who will roll over hard under minimal pressure in a Grand Jury situation. If he's lucky, he's actually as out of the loop as he always comes off. If not, the jogging alone and "Sunday drives to clear his head" won't end well for him.
