Anyone remember Cheney's 1% doctrine?

Anyone remember Cheney's 1% doctrine?

"If there's a 1% chance that Pakistani scientists are helping al-Qaeda build or develop a nuclear weapon, we have to treat it as a certainty in terms of our response."

This also is essentially Trump's view on Muslims from nations with dysfunctional governments.

The difference here is Trump deluded himself there currently is no vetting, the borders were wide open and would-be terrorists were pouring in.

But the warning signs Trump is a Manchurian Candidate, subject to blackmail by a hostile power... or has illegal dealings with criminal regimes is red lining... so I APPROVE if the intelligence community feels some legitimate need to investigate. The stakes are pretty high. The problem with our right wing friends is they place Party over national security.

1. The second GOP principle is:

If there is a 1% chance that we can make a profit by cheating someone, we must do it.
