@Acyn How many elections must Trump lose before @RepRaskin no longer has to warn voters about him?

#TrumpIsANationalSecurityRisk @Acyn @RepRaskin “Trump’s lawyer argued that as president* he could order the assassination of rivals and face no prosecution unless he’s impeached and convicted. But of course he could just kill or threaten to kill Members of Congress who dare to impeach or convict him.”

#EspionageAct [doesn’t] mention classification at all. It talks about a specific type of information: national defense… The real question is, why would Trump WANT to declassify secrets that could harm the U.S.?”
