Donald Trump urged Spain to 'build the wall' – across the Sahara

Donald Trump suggested the Spanish government tackled the Mediterranean migration crisis by emulating one of his most famous policies and building a wall across the Sahara desert, the country’s foreign minister has revealed.

According to Josep Borrell, the US president brushed off the scepticism of Spanish diplomats – who pointed out that the Sahara stretched for 3,000 miles – saying: “The Sahara border can’t be bigger than our border with Mexico.”

Not sure how that can be considered treason unless you ignore the word propose.
You must have ignored the word "order". It was not left open to interpretation, it was a direct order to release un-redacted from the only authority that may do so. You don't "propose" shyte, you obey. In the military you can be court-martialled for ignoring a direct order from a higher authority. They're free to bitch and moan all they want about how this is "abuse of power" or how this "compromises intelligence", they are not free to disobey, end of story.

Treason? :laugh:
Then let him fire Sessions and Rosenstein, instead of whining like a baby.
Also within his power of course, only reason he won't do it is either A) worried about the backlash or B) he does not want to and is merely play-acting. None of which has any bearing on the fact that he can declassify at will, and he has chosen to do so, the FBI has but one option: comply.

Additionally, the Repubs are the ones trying to rush the process through (for obvious reasons)
Kinda like the obvious reasons why deluded lefties would wait until the 11th hour to start throwing unprovable rape accusations around?

We all know this has sweet f-all to do with getting a good judge on the supreme court bench nor does it have the slightest thing to do with justice for someone who allegedly was sexually assaulted over 3 decades ago.

It's all theatre for the mid-terms, at least at this point in time one side has the decency not to get up on that high horse; neither of them belong there.

American people would rather have? Really?

Clinton - 65,844,610 (48,2% of all votes cast)
Trump - 62,979,636 (46,1% of all votes cast)

Nearly two years down the road and you boys *still* can't get your heads around that.

Electoral college Techne, electoral college... It's the US politics thread brother, try keep up.
Lol! It is almost like you still don't know who is president:laugh:. That orange buffoon... got chosen above a Democrat. Hilariously sad for the dems, but one day they will get over it. One day. In the meantime, keep pisting quotes of him as a reminder just how terrible the Democrats must be to lose against him.

Don't worry, a blue wave is coming in November...:unsure:

Firstly, as I said, I don't think Ocasio-Cortez is very well versed in practical economics. She frequently falls on her face when it comes to these kinds of questions. She's well-intentioned but she doesn't have a lot of intellectual clout.
This is true for every socialist, Marxist ever. It always ends in tears and death when the utopia doesn't work out.

Despite President Trump's Monday order for the "immediate declassification" of sensitive materials related to the Russia investigation, "without redaction," the agencies involved are planning to do so anyway, according to Bloomberg, citing three people familiar with the matter.

The Justice Department, FBI and Office of the Director of National Intelligence are going through a methodical review and can’t offer a timeline for finishing, said the people, who weren’t authorized to speak publicly about the sensitive matter. -Bloomberg

Trump ordered the DOJ to release the text messages of former FBI Director James Comey, his deputy Andrew McCabe, now-fired special agent Peter Strzok, former FBI attorney Lisa Page and twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr.

Also ordered released are specific pages from the FBI's FISA surveillance warrant application on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, as well as interviews with Ohr
And Trump finally wins. Just give them enough rope and they'll hang themselves.
