Just so you know, all the information American intelligence agencies have collected regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election and any connection to Donald Trump need to be kept from the public as a way of protecting them.
Such was the ludicrous statement which came from senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway Sunday morning when she appeared on Fox and Friends. Co-host Clayton Morris asked Conway about the meeting Trump will be having in the near future with FBI Director James Comey. Instead of answering, Conway blurted out:
“I’m always disappointed how public and sometimes political some of these figures can seem to be. I’m very concerned, very concerned. You realize it is the Trump team, only us at this time, that is not divulging what occurred in a classified briefing.”
And then Ms. Conway tried to pretend that the public has no right to know any details of just how compromised Donald Trump might be by Russian intelligence. But it’s for our own good, so no need to fret:
“Ladies and gentlemen, it’s called a classified briefing for a reason. You had the vice president of the United States making a comment about it the other day. You have intelligence officials confirming or denying. This classified information, it’s top-secret. Why is it top-secret? It’s not top-secret to keep it from the public, but to protect the public.”
If you really want to protect the American public, Kellyanne, you’d admit that the Russians own Trump lock, stock, and barrel and plan to destroy the United States while he’s in the Oval Office.
Trump and his entire team of co-conspirators are traitors and should be treated as such. We, the American public, have a right to everything that is discovered about this con man and his associates. After all, we paid for the information with our taxes.
Here’s Conway talking about how we need to be protected from information we’re all entitled to:
