12/21 Digby : Trump’s Private Security & Lapdog Media

December 21, 2016

Hopefully Michigan’s Governor is on the verge of getting indicted for his role in the Flint water crisis?

Digby explains, explains the FBI’s reckless role in the 2016 election and why it’s so dangerous. The absurd pick of James Comey as FBI Director by Barack Obama. Why there are no excuses for Comey’s conduct during the election. The FBI and the far right infrastructure. Trump’s private security force and the danger to democracy. The biggest dangers of the Trump Presidency. The terrifying Richard Branson interview about Trump’s pathology. Democrats delusions about Republicans ruthlessness. Why the Press folds for authority and why are we still ignoring issues and focusing on Trump the person.

On The Fun Half: Newt Gingrich is tired of the “drain the swamp”phrase. Bill O’Reilly has a new theory about race. Why conservatives don’t care about conservative principles. The head of a private prison company looks ahead on CNBC and your calls and IMs.
