    For the third straight time, Bernie Sanders won the Democratic primary for Senator in Vermont. As usual, he will decline the nomination and run as an Independent. This is done to prevent a potential Democratic challenger from siphoning votes from him in the fall.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    Reminder that Bernie said in 2015 he wouldn’t leave the Democratic Party.

    He also never joined the party, unless you're referring to someone else?

    Brennan's security clearances were pulled for "being erratic". Nobody with any idea of how this works was consulted by the way; Il Douche just did it because Brennan hurt his tender feefees.

    It's less a stretch and more a sincere question. The other board I follow stuff on has made a big enough deal over the fact that Sanders is affecting thing sin the Democratic party while not actually being a member that I'm left confused why a promise not to leave something he never actually joined is a big deal.

    Anywho:

    Day 573: Erratic

    1/ Trump revoked former CIA director John Brennan's security clearance, citing what he called Brennan's "erratic conduct and behavior." Brennan has been one of Trump's most prominent critics. Last month, the White House threatened last month to revoke the clearances for Brennan, Susan Rice, and James Clapper. Trump is also reviewing James Comey's security clearance. Revoking their access to classified information could impact their ability to work as consultants, lobbyists and advisers in Washington. (Washington Post / New York Times / CNBC)

    2/ The FBI has investigated several cyberattacks over the past year targeted at the Democratic opponent of Rep. Dana Rohrabacher. The 15-term incumbent is widely seen as the most pro-Russia and pro-Putin member of Congress, who has voted against Russian sanctions and was warned by the FBI that Moscow was trying to recruit him as an asset. Last month, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said the warning lights for future cyberattacks aimed at the U.S. were "blinking red" and last week Sen. Bill Nelson said that Russian hackers had "penetrated" county voting systems in Florida. (Rolling Stone)

    3/ The Treasury Department has delayed turning over financial records related to the Russia probe and has refused to provide an expert to make sense of the money trail. Some of the department's personnel have questioned whether the Treasury is intentionally impeding the investigation. At one point, the Treasury went at least four months before responding to a Senate Intelligence Committee request for sensitive financial documents. (BuzzFeed News)

    4/ The Treasury Department retweeted-and-then-deleted a Trump tweet celebrating Republican midterm chances this fall, which experts say was a potential violation of federal campaign law. The department's official Twitter account shared a tweet from Trump touting an upcoming "Red Wave." The Hatch Act bans federal employees from engaging in political activity while on duty or servicing in an official capacity. (The Hill / CNBC)

    5/ Sarah Huckabee Sanders apologized for claiming that Trump has created three times as many jobs for black people as Obama did during his tenure. Sanders claimed that Obama created 195,000 jobs for black people during his eight years in office, while "Trump in his first year and a half has already tripled what President Obama did in eight years." The statement was false, as black employment between January 2009 and January 2017 increased by 3 million jobs. Since then, black employment has increased by about 700,000 jobs.

    Omarosa claimed Betsy DeVos said black students who booed her 2017 commencement speech lack the "capacity to understand" what she's trying to accomplish, "meaning, all those black students were too stupid to understand her agenda." She also goes after DeVos for being "woefully inadequate and not equipped for her job" in her book, "Unhinged." (Politico)

    Roger Stone posted a Nazi Space Force meme on his Instagram before deleting it after public outcry. "I love this," Stone wrote in his original post. "Proud to be in this crew — but the only lies being told are by liberal scumbags." The caption in the photo read: "In space no one can hear you lie." Stone said he didn't notice the swastikas in the photo. (Washington Post)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...the-swastikas/

    One of James Mattis' most senior civilian advisers is under investigation for allegedly retaliating against staff members after she used some of them to run personal errands and conduct personal business. Dana White, the Pentagon's chief spokeswoman, has been under investigation for several weeks and is alleged to have misused support staff by asking them to, among other things, fetch her laundry, go to the pharmacy for her, and take care of her mortgage paperwork. She is also alleged to have inappropriately transferred and reassigned personnel after they filed complaints about her. (CNN)

    I would say it's fair to kick them in the genitals if they can't show vigilance with their elected after the vote. Voting alone doesn't cut it anymore.
