    This should end any further talk about Hillary Clinton's use of a personal email server in her home as "the major national security threat" portrayed by Donald Trump and the "lock her up" crowd. Not only is Trump's resort at Mar-a-Lago a nest of spies and foreign agents, his use of an unsecured cell phone is even worse that Clinton's email scandal. At least with Clinton's emails, there is no evidence they were hacked. With Trump's cell phone, the Russians, Chinese, North Koreans, Saudis and everyone else is listening in.

    Then we have the security clearance scandal with 25 people getting clearances after being denied them by officials tasked in vetting applicants. This scandal needs investigation when people get clearances who are possible targets of blackmail by a foreign power. This must be the most unsecured administration regarding national secrets than what we have seen in the past 100 years. And that's not even including the time Trump told the Russians Israeli intelligence on terrorist activity while boasting of his access to national secrets. Who knows what he's been telling Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un in his secret meetings.

    Why do the Chinese need Malware? Trump's people, that were initially denied security clearance, for a host of issues, probably email the Chinese any request for secrets on a daily basis. $$$
    I thought Trump was going to "be working so hard, I won't have time for vacation. I sure won't be playing golf". Next, we're going to hear that Mexico isn't going to pay for a wall.

    When Trump supporters show as much outrage and concern about the threat Mar-a-lago is to our national security and sovereignty...

    and start demanding that Trump abide by the rules and norms of the White House in regards to security clearances and background checks for his top advisers....

    then we can have a conversation about the threat posed by desperately poor men, women and children from Central America.

    Can you imagine fury that would have been unleashed on Fox News if Obama had spent millions of tax dollars jetting off to his private resorts to cheat at golf, whine, and dine nearly every week-end - where he also made a little on the side charging people thousands of dollars for "access?"

    The hypocrisy is astounding. The Republican Party of my youth is no more - they sold their soul....and our national security...to Trump.

    Apparently the Secret Service is now blaming this breach on the President himself. Given that Trump overturned the negative assessment of the National Security experts in his own White House regarding his son-in-law, this is not surprising.

    And given that the President surely knew his own son was conspiring with foreign agents for dirt on Hillary Clinton, we now can be assured that Trump has only one interest in mind. His own, not the nation's interests and protections.

    You dare not call that treason, but it is certainly unlike any other President we have had before.
