Krauthammer: U.S. ‘Won’t Have Any Allies’ After Release of Senate Intelligence Report

Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer warned that the release of a Senate Intelligence Committee Report on CIA interrogat... will alienate the United States from international allies and prevent it from gathering crucial human intelligence.

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the Obama administration supports releasing the report, despite concerns that its release may endanger American military and diplomatic personnel abroad.

Krauthammer said aside from the immediate damage, the U.S. may will have no allies left that are willing to trust American intelligence officers.

“Most important, I think, is the fact–what intelligence service abroad is going to help us when they are going to be exposed and pilloried around the world?” Krauthammer said on Fox’s Special Report.

It would appear that such information should be "Classified-Top Security" and NEVER made public!  Would you say the Senate, via SOBARKA's orders will further endanger our military, in the field AND our own nation?

I don't think we have any now.     Is there anyone in the entire world Obama hasn't offended, deserted, pissed off, let down, or insulted?     Now, maybe I forgot about Iran...................Feinstien and the Committee have thrown away 40 million dollars, ( of your money) studying to find fault with a plan that worked quite successfully.    This Moron is leading the charge, to give away info, that is crucial to our having any kind of National Security.      When will these people stop playing "Gotcha" Politics, and do something about running this wreckage of a Country???

They spend 40 million on this investigation when we have much more important things to investigate like Benghazi. Shows you where their priorities are.

Every demon-rat needs to live the rest of their sorry arsed excuse for a human being looking over there shoulder, knowing
their name is on something comng for them, but never knowing
when its gong to remove them from their ciminal and traitorous
existance. May they live in a life of fear for the deparvity towards
American citizens that they have demonstrated over the past
years. 
Who know's,  there might be a guillotene waiting for demoncrats,
or just maybe a life in the pit of hell.....maybe just being turned
into a slug at the bottom of the pacific, as food for the fishes
would be appropo....they already smell like dead fish...traitorous}
bunch of demon-rat scum

If you don't know by now it's because Obama is NOT one of us; and NEVER has been it's too late for you.

Barry's favorite book is "The Post American World".....!  WAKE THE FUCK UP PEOPLE......!

The  Obama administration supports releasing the report, despite concerns that its release may endanger American military and diplomatic personnel abroad, just so they could take the heat off them selves.

The CIA represents the US government and therefore all of us. We need the CIA to be strong and to do whatever they need to do. As Bush and Cheney have said, we should be grateful to the CIA for doing the work that they are doing. If the government did not have the power to organize such a program, who knows how many terrorist attacks we would have suffered by now? Only a strong and powerful CIA (and FBI) can assure our safety and the survival of America. It is wrong to placate the CIA's methods for political reasons as the demorats have done by publishing this report. This is anti- and un-American behavior, which has become customary under the reign of obummer. Shame on them!

Actually, I think it's great that the Obama administration has done this! This should really piss off the people in the CIA, the  FBI and the Military. Even if they were supporters of this POTUS....I wonder what they think now?

Paul -Because the demo/communist party took such a "drubbing", in this last election, this is their way of "extracting revenge"!  Knowing it will anger our enemies, toward the USA, even more than they already are.  Of course, bring as mentally deranged as all liberals are, they don't realize (yet) that if the USA becomes a "target", they will be in the "crosshairs" right along with the rest of US!

What else could you expect from the usurper, this petulant child and his minions,  a scorched earth policy, where he knows that he and his corrupt"O"crat regime is finished, and want to do all the damage they can before the varsity team takes over in January. Kind of like the other hussein in iraq, where his defeated and retreating troops set over a hundred Kuwaiti oil wells on fire that burned for over a year.
As a thought, where were the, all concerned, environuts on that one?
Keep a sharp watch and - Prime the guns for 2016

Where's that rogue CIA agent when you need him? What's he waiting for? Do it!

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
