The House Leadership Meltdown

You saw Rep. Waters lose her bouncy blue marbles coming out of the closed-door intelligence briefing.

They were all excited going in, thinking they would get answers and be allowed to dress James Comey down. That was the carrot. The briefing was deemed “confidential,” so it had the air of being easy going, but stern. It wasn’t labeled anything that would require overly-restrictive clearance granted for them to just hear it.

And, they get to beat a Comey pinata (New York Times).

Well, Comey gave the performance that everyone thought he would. Some information running parallel to what the reps learned in their briefing came blew up wide (Independent). And, they all get to STFU as a reward for their participation, because the information shared is “confidential.” Not Classified. No top secret or Eyes Only stuff. But, the people who most want to share this information with expectant baby birdie constituents who DESERVE to know cannot, lest the reps there face espionage charges of their own.

If I was Ms. Waters, I’d be steamed too.


About johnnysdoe

I'm JSD. John. Here, that means Johnny S. Doe. Whatever. We all have jobs and life that makes being neon us on a billboard a liability to people around us / to ourselves. I can yap as JSD and not cause hell and a handful of headaches. I’d never put a soul in a tough spot, but, I can write about some shadowy dots that might help make a more complete pic of how reality jenga’s itself together behind all the frames you see while you’re armchairing about it. For all intents and purpose, outside that function, I’m just John. I work seamlessly behind the seams of the political process you do or don’t take part in. I’m not going to get into much of the about me here. I write for fun at Magnana Mouse Citizen Media with a couple other contributors. Nate Silver says there's a 99.9989 percent chance this will be the only place you will ever see me. If you actually know me, you’d pass out in shock realizing this was me flaunting around here. So, you won’t. That’s all. Now, you, back to work.

    And the spy novel we’re living in continues to unravel. I prefer watching my thrillers at the theatre.
