Democrats are obsessed with investigating President Donald Trump at the drop of a hat, given that the pipe dream of Russian collusion was proven to be a hoax.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is calling for an investigation of the circumstances of Secret Service Director Randolph “Tex” Alles being “fired” by the president — never mind that Alles assured the agency in a letter that while a transition in leadership was in the works, he was not fired.
Citing an incident last month where a woman with Chinese passports breached security at Mar-a-Lago, Warren tweeted “concerns about the White House’s handling of security matters,” to call for Alles being replaced to be included in a probe of that breach.
“The fact that
@realDonaldTrump fired the @SecretService director at the same time the Mar-a-Lago news broke raises more concerns about the @WhiteHouse’s handling of security matters. @DHSgov should expand its investigation to include the circumstances of Alles’ firing,” Warren tweeted.

Warren, whose presidential campaign is getting off to a flat start, linked to a CNN report about a signal detector and other electronic devices being found in the hotel room of the Chines woman, along with several thousand dollars in cash, as evidence that the Mar-a-Lago breach was “more serious than initially reported.”
CNN also said the FBI was investigating the incident as part of a Chinese espionage effort.
And while “electronic devises” can by any number of things, Democrats like Warren voiced few concerns about Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., having a Chinese spy on her staff who worked for her for two decades.
Warren included a copy of the letter she sent to Kohn Kelly, Acting Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security.
“Today, new reports reveal that the March breach may have been more serious than indicated by initial reports, and that ‘the woman who allegedly breached security at Mar-A-Lago … had a signal detector, other electronic devices, and thousands of dollars in cash in her hotel room’ and that the ‘FBI has been investigating the incident as part of a Chinese espionage effort,’” the Democratic senator wrote in the letter.
“These two reports are deeply troubling, raising additional concerns about how the White House is handling Secret Service security matters at Mar-A-Lago and elsewhere. I, therefore, write to ask that you expand any investigation of the recent security breach at Mar-a-Lago to include an examination of the circumstances surrounding President Trump’s reported firing of the Secret Service Director,” she concluded.
That Warren cites reporting from a network that all but dedicates 24-7 coverage to destroying President Trump as the basis for her request speaks for itself.
The same network that reported Monday that Alles “told the workforce he was not fired, but was told weeks ago that the administration would be making ‘transitions in leadership’ at the Department of Homeland Security.”
Either way, it was enough for one loyal Kool-Aid drinker to accuse President Trump of putting the pieces into place to stage a coup… against himself?
It’s as though Trump is aware of what’s coming his way in terms of investigations, and is putting the pieces in place at DHS for a coup. Sounds crazy, I know, but nothing about his presidency is normal.

Meanwhile, back in the real world, here’s a sampling of some of the responses from Twitter:
I think the way Trump uses the washroom troubles you.
Senator, @realDonaldTrump has the Constitutional authority to fire the Secret Service director or anyone else in the Executive Branch. This is just a political ploy on your part. Spare us the theatrics.

Jeh Johnson (D) just contradicted you. You may know him as President Obama head of DHS. Oddly enough, he said the border cris is real. I’m going to go get me a beer. While I do that, maybe you can go get you some integrity and stop pandering for votes.

How about the couple that crashed Obama’s shin dig a few years ago ??
Good grief let the Trump hating go – It will eat you from the inside out.
I find you likable but damn…
