A few words on why Gaetz stunt to storm the SCIF to disrupt Laura Cooper's deposition is a VERY serious national security problem.— Mieke Eoyang (@MiekeEoyang) October 23, 2019
Note, I worked in that SCIF for HPSCI and handled cybersecurity issues while there.
Who the hell knows how this stunt compromised national security? Now I find myself looking up the role of the Sergeant at Arms of the House of Representatives, and the possible actions that the Capitol Police could take against these scrotes. It's a bizarre state of affairs, a worrisome state of affairs, and my civics education, obtained when I lived in a functional society, isn't quite up to the new complexities of this lawless era. What is Nancy Pelosi's scope for punishing these malfeasors? Can their security clearances be yanked? Can the Capitol Police put them in the hoosegow? Can Matt Gaetz get a mace to the face? It's a strange feeling, that of being in uncharted waters, a feeling that the country is on the brink of some Really Bad Mojo. The fact that I'm stuck in a particularly busy time at work, with more parochial concerns at the fore, is a bit maddening... I know that things are not normal, but I don't have that much time to contemplate just how not normal they can get.
