Has Napolitano always been anti-Trump?

I thought during spygate/fisagate he was pretty strongly backing the president.

He was pro-Trump, and I recall lots of meetings between the two right after Trump was elected. Something seemed to have happened behind the scenes a few months ago, because since then Napolitano has been much more critical of Trump.

Napolitano has always struck me as a pretty straight shooter, so it would be interesting to know what caused the rift.

That one I'll blame on the Mooch. As obnoxious as Trump can get sometimes, the Mooch is that x100.

Napolitano believes literally every human being on earth has a right to move the USA:

No wonder he doesn't like Trump.

I have always viewed Napolitano as an opportunist, and I have never liked or trusted him.

Schiff is a proven pathological liar.

But it's not a lie if it fits the narrative

Quote
Schiff later explained that his version of events was simply a "summary of the president's call was meant to be, at least part, in parody."

Ran across this factoid someplace this morning.

Democrats have opened investigations or hearings regarding impeachment on every elected Republican President since Eisenhower.
For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity, that they may be without excuse. Because knowing God, they didn’t glorify him as God, and didn’t give thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

But wait, there's more

Liddle’ Adam Schiff sent this tweet out almost a month ago to the day.

    Trump is withholding vital military aid to Ukraine, while his personal lawyer seeks help from the Ukraine government to investigate his political opponent.

    It doesn’t take a stable genius to see the magnitude of this conflict.

    Or how destructive it is to our national security. https://t.co/X4yhTS2q1Z

    — Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) August 29, 2019

It’s almost like Schiff couldn’t help himself and had to share something he thought he knew … remember when he told the world he had proof that Trump colluded with Russia?

This guy is a train wreck.

Seriously.

    Wait a minute. Check this out: Schiff tweeted this exact same Trump-Ukraine "collusion" narrative a month ago. Hmm … Exactly how long have Schiffty-Schiff and Dems been working with this "whistleblower"? Smelling more and more like prefabrication https://t.co/cRXi222Zwi

This should ruffle a few feathers

    ...sound horrible, and me sound guilty. HE WAS DESPERATE AND HE GOT CAUGHT. Adam Schiff therefore lied to Congress and attempted to defraud the American Public. He has been doing this for two years. I am calling for him to immediately resign from Congress based on this fraud!

I also saw a tweet that pointed to a month old tweet by Schiff saying pretty much exactly what he is saying now.  Making people wonder how long he has been talking to this whistleblower.

Quote
Federal records show that the intelligence community secretly revised the formal whistleblower complaint form in August 2019 to eliminate the requirement of direct, first-hand knowledge of wrongdoing.

Changing this rule makes little sense.  How can someone be a whistleblower if they have no direct knowledge of what happened?  Why should someone get legal protection for reporting rumors they heard about?

Damned convenient that.

Apparently the whistleblower claimed firsthand knowledge anyway, although I don't recall seeing that in the complaint.

The Ukraine whistleblower was actually provided this language, according to the new statement, so it wasn’t eliminated for his benefit. And again, when he filed his form he marked that he had both first- and secondhand knowledge, so a requirement of firsthand knowledge wouldn’t have mattered anyway — whether it was an actual policy or just an erroneous sentence on an informational sheet. But man, what a train wreck.
In the moral, catatonic stupor America finds itself in today it is only disagreement we seek, and the more virulent that disagreement, the better.

A collection of "impeachable" snippets starting pretty much the day Trump was elected:

"If he were caught snorting cocaine in the White House with one of his kids, that would be an impeachable offense."

More it's not lying as long as it fits the narrative

"I want the American people to know what that phone call was about. I want them to hear, it. So yeah it’s fair," Pelosi said Thursday on "Good Morning America."

"It’s sad, but it's using the president’s own words," she added.

"But those weren't the president's words, it was an interpretation of the president's words. They're saying he made this up," he replied.

“He did not make it up,” Pelosi insisted.

Among all the other things going on, like Schiff's duplicity, it appears the whistleblower was an Obama guy digging up Ukraine dirt on Trump during the election.
