      @John Swofford Yes, He’s had to work with Nancy Pelosi, Elijah Cummings and other low lives like AOC.
      But he’s a strong and Great President and able to fight back against those dishonest A-holes.

    I wish all I had to do to get a job was say nice things about the boss.

    John. He puts the Rat in Ratcliffe

    Trump picks people based on loyalty, same as he picks court judges.

  5. Ratcliffe certainly has the character pre requisites to work for Trump

  6. Remember when Rudi came out saying he was head of cyber security at the Trump campaign

    • Guillaume Habarugira yes. How soon we forget all their antics!

    • @Chloe Key
      My memory can be used for more productive things, not for remembering what lunatics with grand delusions do.

      Hopefully China will succeed in hacking Republicans and we’ll be seeing heaps of hacked info being dumped just ahead of the 2020 election.
      No need for any Dems to report any foreign help with their campaign – Moscow Mitch says so.
      There’s a lot more at stake, financially, for China than for Russia, and they have some very capable people.

    • @Antony Stringfellow
      Yeah. Let them taste their own poison. Let them choke on it.

      More like telling the truth

    • Tracy….You mean the guy who stated nothing but facts to the corrupted and fake “law man”? Wake up from your FAIRY tale of Russian collusion, ya loser.

      @jabs69 Ratcliffe embarrassed himself with his stupid statement about Mueller’s Report. Every prosecutor who doesn’t indict gives a written reason for not doing so. Mueller did just that in part two of his report that Ratcliffe claimed was illegal. For a former US Attorney, Ratcliffe is really misinformed.

    Trump you are supposed to vett before nominating someone … you nominated him after seeing his questioning Mueller. Pathetic 😡

    • John Swofford | August 3, 2019 at 8:02 AM | Reply

      Now Trump is claiming the press needs to vet for him in the future. At least there would be some vetting.

  14. Lying, lying, lying. Wg
    Whatr a bogus president. A used car sales man has bettermoraks. (Nothing against car salesman)

  15. Trump too lazy to study? Do your own homework.
