1. Well, it was about ten whole weeks ago.


3.  “Operational security is the most important aspect of personnel deployments. The real names, faces, and identities, of personnel involved in special operations or activities, are usually a closely held secret in a combat zone,” Nance said. “Revealing them casually, through an unusual media exposure even if it’s the commander in chief, would prove a propaganda boom if any of this personnel are detained by a hostile government or captured by a terrorist group. There would be no denying who you are and what you do.”  --Malcolm Nance.  Source: see the link above.

So unless your position is that hostile governments or terrorist groups to not fall under the umbrella of a "national security issue", Tweeting the location and identities of Seal Team Five members definitively fits your criteria of Tweeting national security information "or something of that realm".  Well, you were given the chance to Move the Goalposts, but since you did not take the opportunity to do so, what we have here is an event that conclusively meets your criteria for an impeachable offense.  

Still, don't see the national security issue. 

Too late to Move the Goalposts, Snoopy.  Your criteria was for Beloved Leader to have Tweeted national security information "or something of that realm".  Point 2 shows that Beloved Leader's did in fact Tweet, Point 3 shows how that Tweet revealed "national security information" "or something of that realm".  That's not a matter of speculation.  It's on record.  And my reply was specifically structured so that your question was answered, your criteria for an impeachable offense met, and that you'd "see" it.  You were given the opportunity to Move the Goalposts and you did not take it.

I agree.

Why would he be in court for something like this even if it was stupid.  As Commander in Chief, he could reveal an ops team and nothing would happen.  It would be stupid and put the team in jeopardy and who knows what else but no one could prosecute the President for it.  Its the same thing where he divulge sensitive information from another nation to Russia.  Was it a breach yes, but is it a criminal offense no.  Just because he is an idiot and does stupid stuff just means that people have to live with it because he is the President.  What always cracks me up is people always trying to defend when he does stupid stuff as if he is their relative or something.  Its as if, people feel if they say one bad thing about Trump it crumbles their whole world view.

So you also agree?

Many people in here mostly do not defend him for doing stupid stuff but honest criticism is something that some people try to support even when it is about an opponent so we try to be aware of the sources of information too.

How was it a breach ? 

Not wanting to defend him being stupid but can you tell me how something that is organised as a party with press can be breached?

So we want to try moving over to a more general political thread.  Hopefully one that can be more constructive, and more on topic.
