Ben Lyons chats with Twenty One Pilots before their performance at the The Moore Theatre in Seattle.
You can’t be serious: Ok I want to see if I understand this correctly. First I am not a supporter of Trump nor is my comment a defense of his behavior I am simply posing a question. The Democrats have demanding a full unredacted Mueller Report to include all information on current investigations to include potential witnesses and federal grand jury testimony all which is against the law for Barr to disclose and they have subpoenaed Trump's financial records dating back to 2011 5 years before he even became th GOP nominee to see if he was laundering money for th Russians through Deutsche Bank even though not one shred of evidence has been produced to substantiate or warrant such suspicions, Now that is has been proven to much of the dismay of the Democrats that Trump did not collude nor conspire with the Russians to interfere with the 2016 election in his favor he now wants to investigate how that whole claim even began in the first place and the DOJ who appointed a special counsel ONLY because AG Sessions recused himself from the investigation back in 2017 the same DOJ is not competent nor trustworthy or independent enough to investigate the FBI and or the CIA roles into the whole initial reason and methods to investigate Trump in the first place. WOW. The reasoning from so called intelligence experts is it may jeopardize classified information and other intelligence operations with allies. WOW. So in other plain English words it is quite okay for Congress to see the full Mueller Report ton include all information and federal grand jury testimony and witnesses into potential cases against Trump even though that is against the law. It is not okay for AG Barr to collect all information that was used to get FISA warrants against Trump campaign workers. It was quite okay to use a foreign source to comply an intelligence dossier on Trump the presidential candidate without ANY fact finding or checking from U.S. intelligence officials to support the FISA warrant application filed with the FISA court by the FBI approved and signed by FBI Director Comey, AG Lynch and National Security Advisor Susan Rice. It is reckless and dangerous for AG Barr to declassify this information which is totally within his right and not against the law so the American people can see what really happened and decide for themselves what really happened. WOW. Wonder what some people are so afraid of if there is nothing to hide and everything was all on the up and up. It just reminds me to reflect back on this speech given to the American people on Jan. 17 1961. A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction... This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence—economic, political, even spiritual—is felt in every city, every statehouse, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society. In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military–industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together. Those words are swinging the door opened on both sides of the isle in 2019.
