Fat Nixon killed this guy because he needs the support of some senators in his impeachment hearings.

Every day since then the rationale has been pushed out, refuted by someone in the administration, changed and pushed out again.

After three years of hearing from his two scoops pie hole that the intelligence community is "deep state players" working against him, now suddenly they are credible again.

What a load of crap.

This has wag the dog all over it.

If you paid attention he was talking about a few "bad people" in the intelligence community such as Comey, Brennon, Clapper, McCabe, Strzok. And their day will come.

Trump's relationship with any manner of intelligence is non-existent; he's basically Forest Trump.

Obama ordered/authorized 542 drone strikes that killed an estimated 3,797 people, including 324 civilians.

I guess you Dems think that's okay

Trump's relationship with intelligence. Divorced? With restraining orders and a stay-away order in place?

may I add, Obama didn't have any War approvals from Congress, so he should be prosecuted for the 324 civilians killed

"Obama ordered/authorized 542 drone strikes that killed an estimated 3,797 people, including 324 civilians."

And how many of those were flag grade officers in a recognized nation's military?

So it would be OK with you if someone assassinated Obama? How about W? Cheney? Papa Bush? Kissinger?
