Ivanka had access to sensitive top secret intelligence so yea she turned her unsecured emails over to the Chinese the Russians and any other country or interest who desired to hack into her insecure servers.

You don't have the slightest idea what you are talking about, she turned her emails over the govt archive dept, like Hillary failed to do. She also didn't use a private server, as far as I have heard, it was a yahoo email account. Are you claiming that those govt's have direct access to yahoo email servers?

Carter is just a bitter partisan hack.


Carter never placed Russians working for the US in danger of being shot by having a big mouth when talking to the Russians.

The US secretly extricated a top spy from Russia shortly after Donald Trump hosted the Russian foreign minister and ambassador to the US in the Oval Office, according to reports.

The extraction in 2017 is said to have occurred over fears that President Trump’s attitude towards classified information could pose a risk to the agent, CNN reported.

@BillRM,
CNN is wrong, this was refuted by the CIA.

Quote:
But the CIA called the original backstory, as reported by CNN, wrong.

"CNN's narrative that the Central Intelligence Agency makes life-or-death decisions based on anything other than objective analysis and sound collection is simply false," CIA Director for Public Affairs Brittany Bramell said in the agency's statement.

Bramwell continued: "Misguided speculation that the President's handling of our nation's most sensitive intelligence — which he has access to each and every day — drove an alleged exfiltration operation is inaccurate."

'Shame on you': North Carolina GOP votes to override veto while Democrats were absent

One Democratic lawmaker called the move "scorched earth politics."

Sept. 11, 2019, 1:38 PM EDT
By Dartunorro Clark

North Carolina House Democrats are calling foul on their Republican colleagues for voting to override the governor's budget veto on Wednesday while most Democrats were not present.

The uproar began after GOP Rep. Jason Saine made a motion early Wednesday morning to reconsider the budget that was vetoed by Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper earlier this year, according to The Raleigh News & Observer.

Democrats excoriated Republicans on social media and the few who were present in the House at the time of the vote furiously protested the decision. Only 12 Democrats were in the House, but they did not all have an opportunity to vote and their microphones were cut off, the paper reported. The vote passed 55-9. The issue now moves to the state's GOP-controlled Senate.


Sen. Jeff Jackson

@JeffJacksonNC
WATCH: This is the moment Republicans began their ambush by calling the budget veto override for a vote after they had told Democrats there would be no votes.

Rep. Butler is shielded by fellow Dems as she calls out the travesty and stands her ground. #ncpol @cnn @msnbc @foxnews

"How dare you do this, Mr. Speaker!" said Democratic Rep. Deb Butler, who was surrounded by fellow Democrats on the House floor as she shouted in protest at the decision, according to a video posted online by a Democratic colleague. "If this is the way you think democracy works, shame on you. This is not appropriate and you know it. The people of North Carolina, you will answer to the people of North Carolina."

Bulter later told The News & Observer that the Republicans were practicing "scorched earth politics."

House Democratic leader Darren Jackson told the paper that he informed Democrats that they did not need to be present because Republican Rep. David Lewis said there would be no recorded votes. The North Carolina House is a 120-member body and Republicans hold a 65–55 majority. However, last year Democrats won enough seats in the House to end the GOP's supermajority, which had allowed them to override a veto.

"If we can’t trust each other, this place will fall apart, it’s just too big an entity to run, too many processes to require for everything to be in writing," Jackson said.

Democratic Rep. John Autry, who was also present, called the move unethical.

"Ethics schmethics. What's in a word. After Rules Chair communicated to Minority Leader no votes this morning the Speaker called the vote to override the veto. #NoEthics #NoTrust," he tweeted.

Democratic Sen. Jeff Jackson called the move "a new low" in a tweet.

Sen. Jeff Jackson

@JeffJacksonNC
It's worth noting that Republicans chose to hit a new low with unethical behavior primarily to avoid giving health care to 500,000 people. #ncpol https://twitter.com/JeffJacksonNC/status/1171768556524068864

Sen. Jeff Jackson

@JeffJacksonNC
BREAKING: After telling Democrats there were no votes, House Republicans just called a *surprise vote* and overrode the Governor’s veto on the budget, 55-9 (with almost half of members absent).

Veto still stands in the Senate.

Plainly unethical behavior by Republicans today.
11:16 AM - Sep 11, 2019

"There have to be consequences for this kind of behavior," he said. "Just another lesson in why they must lose their majority."

Wednesday's vote comes amid an ongoing debate in North Carolina about Republican-led partisan gerrymandering. A panel of judges last week ruled that the state's legislative maps "do not permit voters to freely choose their representative, but rather representatives are choosing voters based upon sophisticated partisan sorting."

@Region Philbis,
Their stock answer, when accused of cheating ( if they can’t just out-and-out lie and deny), is “well it’s not illegal!” Contemptible shits.

I remember congressional Democrats passing Obamacare with similar underhandedness.

@InfraBlue,
False. NEVER did Democrats intentionally mislead about a vote.

Key events leading up to the passage of Obamacare (The Affordable Care Act)

Next, follow the timeline of key events leading up to the passage of the Obamacare law, along with key provisions that went into place after the law was enacted.

July 2009: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and a group of Democrats from the House of Representatives reveal their plan for overhauling the health-care system. It’s called H.R. 3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act.

August 25, 2009: Massachusetts senator Ted Kennedy, a leading supporter of health-care reform, dies and puts the Senate Democrats’ 60-seat supermajority required to pass a piece of legislation at risk.
September 24, 2009: Democrat Paul Kirk is appointed interim senator from Massachusetts, which temporarily restores the Democrats’ filibuster-proof 60th vote.

November 7, 2009: In the House of Representatives, 219 Democrats and one Republican vote for the Affordable Health Care for America Act, and 39 Democrats and 176 Republicans vote against it.
December 24, 2009: In the Senate, 60 Democrats vote for the Senate’s version of the bill, called America’s Healthy Future Act, whose lead author is senator Max Baucus of California. Thirty-nine Republicans vote against the bill, and one Republican senator, Jim Bunning, does not vote.

January 2010: In the Senate, Scott Brown, a Republican, wins the special election in Massachusetts to finish out the remaining term of US senator Ted Kennedy, a Democrat. Brown campaigned heavily against the health-care law and won an upset victory in a state that consistently votes in favor of the Democratic party.

In January 2010, eHealth published research conducted by Opinion Research highlighting public perceptions of health-care reform.
March 11, 2010: Now lacking the 60th vote needed to pass the bill, Senate Democrats decide to use budget reconciliation in order to get to one bill approved by the House and the Senate. The use of budget reconciliation only requires 51 Senators to vote in favor of the bill in order for it to go to the president’s desk for signature.

March 21, 2010: The Senate’s version of the health-care plan is approved by the House in a 219-212 vote. All Republicans and 34 Democrats vote against the plan.
March 23, 2010: President Obama signs the Affordable Care Act into law.
Changes Required by the Affordable Care Act Immediately

March 23, 2010:Grandfathered health plans: Anyone who had an individually purchased health insurance plan in place had a health insurance plan with “grandfathered status,” which meant that, by-in-large, the plan could stay the same as long as their insurer continued to offer that plan.

March 23, 2010:Non-grandfathered health plans: Anyone who bought a health insurance plan after March 23, 2010 would eventually have to enroll in a new plan that met all of the new standards of the Affordable Care Act. The original deadline for this transition was January 1, 2014 or on a plan’s renewal date within the 2014 plan year.

On April 7, 2010: eHealth publishes a list of FAQs and tips for consumers and small business owners who buy their own health insurance.

Changes Required by the Affordable Care Act After 90 Days
June 23, 2010:

Small business tax credits:For certain small businesses, there are tax credits of up to 35% of premiums.

Access to the federal high-risk pool for the uninsured with pre-existing conditions:There are $5 billion allocated for individuals who cannot qualify for insurance. These funds allow them to buy insurance from the government; but, this coverage is not free.

Reinsurance for retiree health benefit plans:This is a temporary reinsurance program that provides reimbursement to participating employment-based plans for a portion of the cost of providing health insurance coverage to early retirees.

July 1, 2010:

Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP): This program is designed to make health insurance available to those that have been denied coverage by private insurance companies because of a pre-existing condition.1 Forbes

@InfraBlue,
Insurance with no preconditions clauses/loopholes and lower affordable overall cost sure sounds underhanded to me... (cynical)

Especially the part where children can stay on their parents plan until they are 26! This reeks of corruption! (cynical)

Yea, and hurricane Dorian is headed straight for Alabama!

You can trust NOAA under Trump! Bolt down the hatches and run for shelter in the root cellar Alabama!

And Trump never told Putin anything!!! ...and this is why he would not let interpreters, and note takers into the meeting.

So, Bramwell has no idea what Trump has said to Putin and is talking out of his (profanity)...

President Trump went to 'extraordinary lengths' to hide details of Putin meetings, report says
