    Please stop Trump this placement could effect the whole world and it is very very dangerous. When is this nightmare going to end ? He is nothing but a Trump hack like Barr .

      Muellar time is over now the ones that orchestrated this coup attempt is going down.

    • Beverly Inkster Beverly, I agree. These appointments by Trump are frightening. Ratcliffe is as corrupt as Barr which is 100%.
      Out Intelligence goes directly to Putin. Disgraceful. Best to you. 🌺

      @Redpill christopher SHUT UP

  2. The senate Republicans won’t care if the guy is honest, or a criminal, or anything else, except that Trump wants him, so Trump will get him.

      Trump caught the rats in a corner and now it is time for them to pay for what they did trump is setting up things and preparing for the mass indictments of people that ochestrated this fraud of investigation.

  4. Michael Rowsell | July 30, 2019 at 6:49 PM | Reply

    The next thing will be Trump appointing Russians to his White House Staff. He could pick members of the Kremlin to his Cabinet and the Republican Party would go along with it.

    Great! A brainless man taps a Bozo for Intel Chief.

    Foremost is the security of America, not whether trump faces justice or not!

      @Redpill christopher
      Cut n paste Trolling… Very poor effort.

    • catalinacurio
      Its one and the same really. trump is illegitimately president because he colluded with russians, then proceeded to commit crimes in order to cover it up by, last but not least, appoint sycophants who will shield him from prosecution and oversight. #RATcliffe is just the latest effort in this but one that will jeopardize national security by being the would-be Intel Chief.

    No experience and another incompetent REPUKKKE! RATcliff is a RAT 🐀

  8. LEGACY PROJECT | July 30, 2019 at 6:57 PM | Reply

    criminal trump and GOP are not loyal to america they are allied with others for nefarious reasons. GREED being one

    • Ugly German Truths | July 31, 2019 at 4:36 AM | Reply

      But at least we know they won’t be loyal to these others either. It’s Backstab-a-palooza with these crooks all the way around.

  9. Ratcliffe was personally recommended to Trump by Putin to head the Department of National Intelligence.

      Busted google takes orders from MSNBC! Google YouTube change search results after MSNBC host complain!

      Censorship!! Election manipulation!

    • @texas thunder

      Shut up Russkie.

    • Michael Paysour | July 31, 2019 at 12:13 AM | Reply

      I know it would be funny if it were not so likely to be true. We are so vulnerable right now. I didn’t get scared until this story broke. The wall maybe used to keep people in more than keeping people out.

    • Michael Paysour | July 31, 2019 at 12:17 AM | Reply

      We are done for. Obama should have made Trump disappear before he took office.. It is to little to late to impeach every secret we have has been given to the Russians and Israels.

    • @texas thunder *IS A RUSSIAN TROLL*

    If Ben Carson and Betsy DeVos can be confirmed…anyone can..what a sad government we have..

      @Bjorn Santens thanksexpert..fixed lol

    • Bjorn Santens | July 30, 2019 at 8:12 PM | Reply

      @bottomline2000 fixed it too…and again
      I agree

    • This Trumpanzee has no specialist knowledge, loves to make money will cutting benefits for others, enjoys hunting people, and will never say a bad word about his cult leader – sounds like a sure confirmation.

    • princeoftidds | July 31, 2019 at 2:31 AM | Reply

      Confirmations were traditionally rubber stamped. It was under the belief that administrations did their own vetting. In typical Trump Syndicate fashion, there is hollow rhetoric instead of careful strategy. The rubber is gone because of this disorganized and unprofessional WH.

  11. RATcliffe is not a fierce political warrior. He is a vicious attack dog. We already have a lying political hack heading up what is now the Department of Injustice. We certainly do not need another lying political hack going into a position which will soon be the Director of National Stupidity.

  12. Natalie Johnson | July 30, 2019 at 7:01 PM | Reply

    BS. The Senate will roll over and play dead and confirm this travesty of a candidate.

  13. Radcliffe is Trumps New Gestapo Chief, just like Heinrich Muller was to Hitler. With Bill ‘snitty’ Barr & ‘Heinrich’ Radcliffe “Book Ending” Trump, he can move full speed ahead to persecute his real and imagined enemies. Trump has got his Sycaphantic Collaborators bluffed, remember Ivanka Trump stated in her book, The Appearance Of Power is More Important than Power Itself. Trump’s only power over people is what they acquiesce to him. Radcliffe is Trumps New Blunt Instrument. Cheers from Michael. Australia.

    It’s Our Lord LittleHands That has run amuck.
    Projection… Mussolini tactic.

  15. Jeff Zabelski | July 30, 2019 at 7:03 PM | Reply

    I wish you would start drawing the remarkable parallels with Mussolini and Trump.

    • brenda mcdonall | July 30, 2019 at 10:29 PM | Reply

      Well, both fat, ugly, narcissistic, cold-blooded creeps but at least Mussolini had a clue what he was doing, He ended hanging upside-down in a public square. Maybe Trumps loooooong ties would serve that purpose.

  16. Ratcliffe would be distrastrous (not to mention, inexperienced) and should not be confirmed. KUDOS TO DNI DAN COATS FOR YOUR SERVICE. 🇺🇸🇺🇸

  17. Oh Barr and Trump would love to have Ratcliffe on board. Not to mention does not have proper experience or background but definitely a Trump puppet .

  18. Moscow Mitch | July 30, 2019 at 7:11 PM | Reply

    Comrade Trump asked Moscow Mitch and Putin who he should pick… We said this guy!

  19. Ratcliffe: “I don’t know what you want Mr. President. If you are looking for experience in intelligence, I can tell you I don’t have any,  but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very short career. Skills that would make me a nightmare as the pick for the Director of National Intelligence.”

    Once again..Trump wants a fox, actually more like a starving hyena, in charge of the henhouse. This crook is flooding the swamp!
