White House paranoid: 'Everyone thinks they're being recorded'

Source: Politico

Paranoia is enveloping the White House and President Donald Trump’s network of former aides and associates as Robert Mueller’s Russia probe heats up.

Both cases raise the possibility that other current or former colleagues have also flipped sides — and they're prompting anxiety that those people could be wearing wires to secretly tape record conversations.

“Everyone is paranoid,” said a person close to Trump’s White House. “Everyone thinks they’re being recorded.”

3. Good

This is just another example of how stupid Trump and his associates are. They broke laws thinking they were untouchable. It's about time they found out what criminals they really are.

13. Valid paranoia is still paranoia.

Either way, it's a miserable experience and I am delighted they are suffering from it.

24. You sure?

29. Paranoia and PPD are not synonymous.

Paranoia can be a perfectly justified emotion, or it can be a groundless, disordered, illusion. In the White House right now, I think the former applies.

That is in addition to the fact that the person at the top clearly exhibits a personality disorder (NPD in his case).

17. From the Watergate Articles of Impeachment:

ARTICLE 1

In his conduct of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his consitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, and impeded the administration of justice, in that:

21. Good, I hope they all suffer, knowing that they broke multiple laws

and aided and comforted an enemy of America (Russia/Putin).

Elections should be held to the utmost standards in this country, and these guys basically conspired to steal our votes...
