Calls have increased for Republican nominee Donald Trump to be denied national security briefings offered to presidential nominees of major political parties after he said he hopes Russia is "able to find" Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's discarded private emails.
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said he hopes the candidate is given "fake intelligence briefings … because you can't trust him."
And Democratic Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island has sent a letter to President Barack Obama saying Trump "is unfit to receive sensitive intelligence" and asks that he "withhold" Trump's expected intelligence briefing.
A petition by the liberal group CREDO has amassed more than 80,000 signatories in less than 24 hours urging that Trump receive no security briefings.
You know I find is ironic that just a couple of weeks ago Paul Ryan was making a stink about denying Hillary Clinton access to security briefings due to her e-mail "scandal" and now this week there are far more legitimate concerns about the candidate representing his own party.
You know all partisanship and joking aside, I REALLY do think that giving Donald Trump access to anything deemed top secret is a very dangerous idea.
