Democrats Displeased After Trump Confesses He Kept Leaders In The Dark On Syria Raid Because Of Impeachment

Democrats are not at all happy after President Trump recently confirmed that he withheld details about the raid that ended the life of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi from Democratic leaders over their impeachment efforts.

Check out the details from The Washington Examiner:

“Well, I guess the only thing is, they were talking about why didn’t I give the information to Adam Schiff and his committee. And the answer is because I think Adam Schiff is the biggest leaker in Washington. You know that. I know that. We all know that. I’ve watched Adam Schiff leak. He’s a corrupt politician,” the president told reporters.

“He’s a leaker like nobody has seen before. We had a very good conversation with the Ukrainian president. The conversation was perfect. They don’t ever have to talk about the conversation. It started with the whistleblower,” Trump said.

Democrats took offense to the president keeping their top caucus leaders, half of the congressional “gang of eight” who receive regular classified briefings, in the dark.

“Just speaking generally, most intelligence leaks don’t come out of Congress. They come out of the administration. I’m just talking generally — any administration. So regardless, the amount of trust between this administration and Democrats, intelligence issues and national security, issues are more important than those issues,” Rep. Max Quigley, an Illinois Democrat who sits on the Intelligence Committee, told the Washington Examiner.

Sen. Jim Lankford weighed in on the situation, noting that ever since Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi launched the impeachment inquiry and gathered Democratic support for the measure in the House, the distrust between the White House and Democrats has grown.

“That’s been an ongoing concern for a while. That’s not just this past weekend. I mean, they both made that pretty obvious just in the way they’ve spoken about each other and to each other at some point for the sake of the American people. We’ve got to be able to resolve it,” Lankford said.

“There were 200 Democrats on record saying, ‘I want to start an impeachment inquiry.’ But that’s a pretty bold statement. And it’s hard to be able to build trust after that. That’s not, hey, let’s find a way to work together. That’s I’m working to find a way to get you removed entirely,” he continued.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
