A Former CIA Spy Thinks Putin 'Deliberately Left A Trail Of Breadcrumbs' Between The Kremlin And Trump Tower
Vladimir Putin has been president of Russian Federation for almost two decades. Trump has also butted heads with US intelligence agencies over their conclusion that Russian Federation interfered with last year's USA elections. Congress, which can't agree on anything, came close to unanimity last week in endorsing tough, Trump-proof sanctions against the Putin regime. Trump signed the bill on August 2, while making his displeasure clear.
Trump said Democrats are the ones who should be investigated for collusion, not him. Congress drafted the bill in a way that makes it hard for the president to lift sanctions, following constant reports of connections between Trump associates and Russian Federation.
Indeed, Trump Hotels are focal points for all manner of protest since the businessman made a decision to run for president.
So far, Trump hasn't conceded that dismal reality. The underlying message is distinctly authoritarian: If only the leader had total control, everything would be better for the country and the people.
LOL? But seriously, after ten full days of radio silence from the White House on what amounts to a serious act of diplomatic aggression from Vladimir Putin, the president's response was de-escalated to the point of being catatonic.
Mr Trump has rejected the inquiries as a "witch hunt". But there is not a word about Russian Federation or Putin in Trump's Twitter feed, nor in his public comments, save for his ritualistic (and increasingly unconvincing) denials of any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation in the election.
Russia, more than many other countries, has a vested interest in an effective USA presidential administration that can deliver on Trump's campaign promises.
Some proponents of engagement with Moscow argue that sanctioning Putin merely plays into his hands. Putin did him a solid. Sanctions that strike at the gang's investments overseas are an excellent way to do that.
Trump has voiced his criticism about that the probe, but he he said on Thursday he will not fire Mueller. He showed no signs of joking before taking other questions from reporters. In the first installment, she announces, in front of a Trump-Pence campaign backdrop in Trump Tower: "President Trump has created more than 1 million jobs".
