Also, you guys seem to live in a kind of fantasy world. Do you really think it would have been that easy to blackmail him? The director of the CIA of all people? First of all, he doesn't seem like the kind of man that would allow himself to be blackmailed. Secondly, with the FBI investigating him, I'm sure it would be real easy to just slip right in under their noses and blackmail him without getting caught /sarcasm. Really, it's too bad these unknown nefarious characters didn't try, because then we'd all know who they are.
I don't care that they kept it a secret... I care that the WH continues to lie to the American people and nobody gives a ****...
Either 90% of the media outlets have better things to report on or they simply would rather not make this administration answer for blatantly lying to the public...
