Harry Reid: How Can Intel Community Give Trump Classified Briefings Now?

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/harry-reid-trump-classified-briefings-putin

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) was left flabbergasted by the prospect of giving Donald Trump classified briefings on the campaign trail after the nominee's comments about Russian hackers.

“How would the CIA and the other intelligence agencies brief this guy? How could they do that? I would suggest to the intelligence agencies, if you’re forced to brief this guy, don’t tell him anything, just fake it, because this man is dangerous,” Reid said in a Wednesday interview with The Huffington Post. “Fake it, pretend you’re doing a briefing, but you can’t give the guy any information.”

3. There must be a way

I don't know the law about the obligation to brief a nominee on classified intel, but I'm going to try to find out. This is very, very scary, though. The thought of this many getting classified information is chilling. He doesn't care. He said himself that he could say anything, do anything (including shooting in the street) and people would still love him.

This is a megalomanic who must be stopped. I don't often use the word evil to describe a person, but this is evil.

7. If they really wanted to dump Trump for another candidate...

... it seems to me that they would have the constitutional backing to do it now. But I think they are going to hang on to him until the bitter end. As much as many Republicans dislike him, they seem paralyzed by fear of Trump's crazy followers.

11. But that would be the death of the gop.

Lucid, conservative, smart, patriotic republicans would get hosed by the low information voters they cultivated over the last 25+ years. It's their own damn fault, but these people think it Palin's "lame stream media" lying about traitor trump. If he was to behead a priest in Time Square and throw babies on a fire pit in front of cameras, these people would claim it was photoshopped, that their perfect candidate couldn't do this. Trump would have to stab each person with a rusty dull blade before they would believe he was dangerous.

I figure in a few weeks, he'll be able to claim he was only married once, and Melania had all five kids, starting when she was 6.

14. The GOP may die with or without Trump.

I agree with your assessment of the Trump voters. They would react harshly to any attempt to dump Trump.
