Trump the Attack Dog

Again attacking honorable men who he perceives to be his enemies.
Here is his tweet:

Little Adam Schiff, who is desperate to run for higher office, is one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington, right up there with Comey, Warner, Brennan and Clapper! Adam leaves closed committee hearings to illegally leak confidential information. Must be stopped!

Who are these targets of Donald J Trump’s wrath?
Adam Schiff is the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee who has asked the Committee to vote to release his memo detailing inaccuracies in and objections to the memo Committee Chairman Deven Nunes released last week in an effort to show that the FBI/Mueller investigation of Trump & Company is biased.
James Comey is the former FBI Director whom Trump fired after demanding a personal “loyalty” oath and after asking him to “let go” the investigation of Michael Flynn (who has now pled guilty to the charge of lying to the FBI  about his contact with the Russians).
Mark Warner is the Senior U S Senator from Virginia who is Vice Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee and who has warned Trump not to attempt to fire the Special Counsel investigating possible Trump Campaign collusion with Russia.
John Brennan is a former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency who while a member of the Agency was accused of allowing the transport of Terrorist prisoners to Countries where they might be interegated using harsh means. Recently he has spoken out against Trump’s attack on U S Intelligence Agencies and on the Nunes memo mis-characterization of the requests to the FISA Court for warrants to evesdrop on  Trump associates suspected of colluding with Russia (warrants different Court Judges have regularly issued)
James Clapper, a retired Air Force Lt. General, is a former U S Director of National Intelligence and before that Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. He has also spoken out against Trump’s attacks on U S Intelligence Agencies.
Previously Trump called Brennan and Clapper “hacks” when they pushed back against his assertion that U S Intelligence Communities in their unanimous judgement were wrong in believing Russia had interfered with the 2016 U S Presidential Election – an assessment written by Agency professionals and not the two men who were in charge.
Now, what can we make of this intemperate and vile twitter attack on these five men who in their various capacities have served our Country honorably?
Why, the obvious.
Donald J Trump is running scared. He feels the noose of Investigative findings tightening. He lashes out in the manner (forgive me) of a wild beast caught in the trapper’s iron jaws.
But then, what would you expect of this man, this pathetic human being?
As the saying goes “contemptible is as contemptible does.”
