I am not sure any state is deserving of these folks.

Russia tried to use Trump advisers to infiltrate campaign. Well, duh, CNN!
Quote:
The FBI gathered intelligence last summer that suggests Russian operatives tried to use Trump advisers, including Carter Page, to infiltrate the Trump campaign, according to US officials.

The new information adds to the emerging picture of how the Russians tried to influence the 2016 election, not only through email hacks and propaganda but also by trying to infiltrate the Trump orbit. The intelligence led to an investigation into the coordination of Trump's campaign associates and the Russians.

Sally Yates to testify on TU May 2nd 2017. Sally Yates is the one that first notified the Bannon Administration...erm, Trump Administration that Paul Manafort was a foreign agent.

Sally was to testify at the last hearing which Devin Nunes conveniently cancelled because Sally was going to testify at that meeting. Now that Devin Nunes is out of the way, Sally Yates is free to tell us what she knows.

Trump firing Comey because of the Russian Collusion investigation is like shooting a drug-sniffing dog for pointing out your suitcase at the airport.

One can only wonder when the Republicans will grow a pair and take care of business. Now that the jackass is revealing others secrets perhaps this is the straw that breaks but, on reflection the congressional jerks, with few exceptions, are determined to continue to sniff the jackass butt. If there was ever a great example of elected being willing to support, say, and lie to keep their jobs now is the time.

Now they are talking about the jackass apologizing - that, in itself, would be interesting as he does not apologize.

I think the President can choose to unclassify anything he wants, so there is no question of criminal charges. This is a classic example of a High Crime: He used his high office to do something anybody else would go to jail for, and is very harmful to the interests of the US. If he did it unintentionally, then he is just too stupid to trust with secret info.

Either way, yet another of the many impeachable offenses he has already committed. I'm thinking this is going to be really embarrassing for House Republicans when he actually is impeached and the list contains hundreds of charges. How much damage is he going to do before he is removed? Are they going to be held accountable for it because they failed to do their duty?

Once again the Trump lie-machine tries to say it was Hillary's fault...
