Ben Carson's got my money.
That's a good bet. Trump probably has forgotten he even exists so he is safe for now.

https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/prosecutors-reviewing-request-to-issue-arrest-warrant-for-trumps-new-cia-director/

Gina Haspel, Deputy Director of the CIA and Trump's nominee to head the CIA now that he has nominated current Director Mike Pompeo to be Secretary of State, was allegedly involved in torturing people and signed documents ordering that the tapes made of the torture sessions be burned.

Further, German prosecutors are seeking an arrest warrant for Haspel. If approved, Haspel would be subject to arrest immediately upon entering the European Union.

She can't leave the US and her duties as CIA Director would have to have her do that.

Ironbite-DELICIOUS!

Schumer on Trump nominating a FUCKING WAR CRIMINAL to be CIA Director: I want to hear from her before making any decisions on whether we should vote for or against her.

And on Pompeo, the Democrats are calling for him to be more hawkish on Russia than Tillerson was--and keep in mind that there's a NATO buildup on Russia's border, US ships in the Black Sea, and multiple incidents of Russian and US places coming very close to colliding with each other. (Schumer says the same about Pompeo, and also says that he wants him to toughen up the administration's stance on Russia. Oh, and Pompeo thinks that Edward Snowden should be executed.)

One party says, 'I can't wait to just nominate all these war criminals, it's going to be fucking wonderful,' and the opposition party goes, 'Yeah, but those war criminals better be even more hawkish.'

If you can't come out and say, "we will record 47 votes against Haspel" when she's a FUCKING WAR CRIMINAL, what the FUCK ARE YOU GOOD FOR CHUCK SCHUMER?

EDIT: And don't forget, Trump's third major nomination (to replace McMaster as National Security Adviser) is John Bolton, who led the charge in lying the US into the illegal invasion of Iraq, and has called for the US to go to war with Iran and North Korea... simultaneously. While still engaged fully in Iraq and Afghanistan. And aiding the Saudi genocide in Yemen. And conducting drone bombings in at least 5 more countries.

So not only is she the first woman appointed to that position, she's also the first war criminal with outstanding warrants to be appointed to that spot too?

I'd be pretty surprised if she's the first war criminal appointed to the position, but then I think much of what the US does outside its own borders constitutes war crimes.

As for outstanding warrants, I don't think the warrant being sought in Germany has been approved yet.

Usually the war crimes happen after being appointed though.

Well, I have to wonder how often the CIA Director is appointed from inside the organization.

GOP competence: https://theguardiansofdemocracy.com/maine-gop-candidate-called-parkland-survivor-skinhead-lesbian-drops-race/

GOP candidate insulted one of the Parkland students, which inspired someone to become a Democrat candidate to oppose him and now that the GOP candidate withdraws because of the shitstorm that came from him insulting a massacre survivor the Democrat is running unopposed.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

When a party's mantra is that government doesn't work, you'd think voters would get the message and not put them in charge of governing.

That or stop voting.  If government doesn't work, why are you putting asses in seats?

Because if you don't vote in people who fight the government power, communists will transform the government into a dictatorship and after all the God-fearing NRA members have been exterminated in FEMA camps the survivors are forced into gay marriages and to live in hobbit homes.

You forgot about the part where everyone else dines on aborted fetuses.
