Senate confirms Trump loyalist Ratcliffe as US top spy

The Senate Thursday confirmed Rep John Ratcliffe(R-Texas) as director of national intelligence, in a move aimed at ending 9 months of reshuffling at the top of the nation’s spying establishment. He will replace acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell. Lawmakers voted 49-44 in a party-line vote, a far slimmer margin than his predecessors, for the confirmation.

Nothing should surprise us anymore with this Senate and Moscow Mitch leading the way. So much for any accurate intelligence gathering. Russia just got a free pass to do whatever it wants. This guy is less valuable than dirt. The GOP has really taken a nose dive and I'm not sure any respect for it will be returned in the near future. They don't seem to care about the American people and their policies don't reflect any caring.
