Circumstances were different in 2012 – Russia hadn’t meddled in our elections. Also, Obama pointed out problems with the election.
Trump congratulated Putin on winning the rigged Russian election. His advisers had recommended that he should not do that.
He didn’t confront Putin on the poisonings in England, Russian meddling in our elections, or their access to our power grid.
I think they leaked the information to the media because they are patriots concerned about Trump’s unwillingness to confront Putin, not because he ignored their advice.
I continue to think Russia has something on Putin. I’m not the only one speculating about this. I am guessing it’s financial dealings, not a pee tape. Sad!
Trump congratulated Putin on winning reelection. Now, there’s a rigged election! Trump apparently didn’t discuss Putin’s meddling in the election or power grid. I really think Russia has something on him since he is unwilling to criticize Putin.
We know that Trump likes dictators – this is not the first example. Sad!
Dowd is considering quitting because he can’t control Trump’s behavior. Trump has talked about firing Cobb. Trump added diGenova, a conspiracy theorist (like Trump).
This is a good column on why the Congressional Republicans won’t restrain Trump. I still think there’s a good chance Trump will fire Mueller. Congress could prevent it by passing a law….but they won’t.
Trump has added Joseph D. diGenova to his legal team. He has said, according to the article “Make no mistake about it: A group of FBI and DOJ people were trying to frame Donald Trump of a falsely created crime.”
That’s not true but it sounds like Trump’s thinking. It increases the likelihood that Trump will fire Mueller. Sad!
It appears that there was a valid non-political reason for the firing of Andrew McCabe. I think Trump would have been better off just to let that part of it play out and be the story. This article reviews what McCabe and Trump have said.
However, Trump is gloating about the firing and making it political as part of his efforts to undermine the Russia investigation. Sad!
