    Fifty prominent Republican foreign policy and national security experts -- many veterans of George W. Bush's administration -- have signed a letter denouncing Donald Trump's presidential candidacy and pledging not to vote for him.

    The letter, first reported by The New York Times Monday, warns: "We are convinced that in the Oval Office, he would be the most reckless President in American history."
    Its signatories include former CIA and National Security Agency Director Michael Hayden, former Director of National Intelligence and Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte and Eric Edelman, who was Vice President Dick Cheney's national security adviser and has worked closely with Michele Flournoy -- a candidate for secretary of defense in a prospective Clinton administration -- to forge a centrist group of defense experts on key military issues.
    It also includes two Homeland Security secretaries under Bush, Tom Ridge and Michael Chertoff, and Robert Zoellick, a former World Bank president, U.S. trade representative and deputy secretary of state.

    Obviously this is an establishment ploy.

    It may or may not work.

    If the Donald makes this establishment fact the main reason for the letter he will glean much more support otherwise they may very well topple him.

    This anti-Trump effort is basically the same people who have opposed him all along. The spokesperson for the group is Regina Thompson, a Colorado Cruz delegate and organizer who tried to 'Dump Trump' during the primaries.

    These experts are the same who claimed Saddam Hussein was hiding WMDs, so sure his stockpiles were so vast that we needed to invade and disarm Hussein. Being a liar doesn't make someone an expert.

    This is the problem with establishment Republicans - where was their concern troll letter opposing Obama in 2008 as a "threat to security", meaning their own security? Oh, that's right, there wasn't one.

    When it comes to Trump, I've learned to expect the unexpected. So what id fifty so called experts in this field want someone else as their candidate? There ate as many Democrats disgusted that Hillary is their candidate, but the liberal leaning media will never report this; because they, like many Republicans, "truly FEAR" the Donald. He represents the end of Washington and the way it's been for at least a century.

    Your OP is not so much news, as it is pig slop, served up by the right leaning GOP pouters.

    That's a pretty impressive list of warmongering NeoCons.
