    .................... Redactions protected political embarrassment, not ‘national security’

    "................................ There is now a concrete storyline backed by irrefutable evidence: The FBI allowed itself to take political opposition research created by one party to defeat another in an election, treated it like actionable intelligence, presented it to the court as substantiated, and then used it to justify spying on an adviser for the campaign of that party's duly chosen nominee for president in the final days of a presidential election.

    And when, nine months later, the FBI could not prove the allegation of collusion between Trump and Russia, unverified evidence was leaked to the media to try to sustain public support for a continued investigation.

    That means the redaction of Footnote 43 had more to do with political embarrassment than with national security. And that should concern us all................"

    The question is - What is going to be done about it? Additionally, what will be done to keep it from happening again?

    I don't know, but it sure is being kept in the news. And that's a good thing. They are going to have to do something about it, it simply stinks too bad to ignore.

    And how long have they known about this latest "bombshell" report?

    If you're waiting for something to be done about our government's corruption,
    you might as well be pissing in the wind.

    All the news reporting is nothing more than a poorly scripted reality show,
    written by government officials who are playing a smoke and mirrors joke on the American people.

    Where are all of the documents that the President ordered the release of?

    Why isn't this being asked about on every evening news show?

    Trump agreed to let the IG review them again. A mistake IMO.

    At the risk of seeming to be a cliche Nazi the correct complete phrase is “...pissing into the wind...” Pissing with your back to the wind works just fine.

    The lyrics to the song go like this.

    "Pissing in the wind, betting on a losing friend".
    "Pissing in the wind, and it's blowing on all our friends".
