#1 LOL as if the intelligence community takes orders from the president! Laughable! They rule themselves and we answer to them, not the other way around.

#2 No they don't but that's illegal. A legitimate executive order places them in a position where they can be booted for 'not complying'. He could very well start kicking out people for even failing to respond to queries and calls by Barr.

At least in theory. Trump is really flexing his muscles, has been for quite a while. He could get the dems to agree on everything that benefits the US commerce wise because half of the left don't understand it, and the other half (the older ones) were secretly cheering him.

His main fight is with the deep state, the Left-appointees, corrupt intel officers and an activist judiciary.

#3 As if they view the law as an impediment. They're answerable to a higher cause than our silly Constitution. It is their destiny to usher in a new era of world peace by way of making endless war, and any obstacles in their way they are the carping of mindless children.

#4 A lot of work over the holiday weekend destroying evidence will be heard in the swamp.

#5 Ref #2: His main fight is with the deep state, the Left-appointees, corrupt intel officers and an activist judiciary.

"Deep state" meaning... all of the above to include many feckless politicians of both parties.

Herb's comments harken back to the Eisenhower era and his warning with regard to the "Military Industrial Complex". Strange isn't it, we've not had a former General Officer as POTUS since Eisenhower, nearly 70 years. They all seem to stumble along the way. Strange, very strange.

#6 Probably because an Eisenhower of today would appear as a Putin to some people ? That wouldn't be acceptable to even Republicans.

#7  Declassification Letter.

I wonder why the Department of State (Hillary's old stomping grounds) wasn't included in the distribution of the declassification order?

#8 Scratch the last comment. The DOS is included.

#9 Eisenhower also warned against a "scientific-technological elite"

#10 #9 True, but that's gone straight down the memory hole.

#11 Inclusion of Energy and Treasury is...interesting.

#12 Hire the Inspector Generals that Obama emasculated fired and give them authority to terminate anybody obstructing. They should have a good idea where all the skeletons are buried.
