The latest development from the pre-season pick to be the most corrupt presidential administration in U.S. history:
As Donald Trump cracks the knuckles of his tiny fingers and prepares to pick his Cabinet, one of the names in the running is David Petraeus. If Trump decides to pick Petraeus for this very important job, however, the former general will have to notify his probation officer within three days.
Petraeus was sentenced to two years’ probation in April 2015 for passing classified information to Paula Broadwell, who was at the time writing his biography and with whom he was also having an affair. That affair and its aftermath forced his resignation as director of the C.I.A in 2012.
This tidbit was discovered by The Hill, who notes that even if he is picked for Secretary of State, he’ll still be subject to the terms of his probation, including “warrantless searches” and allowing his probation officer to “access and review his computer and phone data at any point in time until the end of the sentence.” Wonderful news for national security, all around!
The Lügenorange got his pump truppets all hot and bothered about Hillary Clinton’s emails, a nothing story that was blown out of proportion by the right wing for more than a year. Petraeus actually committed a crime and was convicted.
But the mewling sheep following the taupe wolf refuse to see reality.
