Donald Trump’s recent European tour was undoubtedly a smashing success, at least for him and his loyal Trumpkins. “He’s opening up lines of communication.”
Well, here is a news flash: those lines have been open already, for many years, even well before he announced his candidacy for president in 2015. Eric and Donald Jr. spilled the beans about that long along. We are just waiting now for the documentation.
Trump continues his obsession with his election in 2016 and questions of its legitimacy. Trump comrades, like Congressman Chris Collins, are still re-litigating the election too. So let’s play along with that line of thinking.
Ring master Vladimir Putin is out in the open with his 2016 Trump campaign efforts. “Yes, I did. Yes, I did” were his answers at the press conference on Monday when asked if he wanted Trump to be elected and if he directed his government to assist in that effort.
He helped with the hacking. Trump asked the Russians on July 27, 2016 to find Hillary Clinton emails, and that same day the Russians went looking.
We may someday see that Putin also helped with the money too when the story about the Russians and the NRA plays out. Such things are, to be technical, illegal in these United States.
As to collusion, take your pick of Manafort, Stone, Donald Jr., Jared, or Carter Page, etc., etc. Or just look at the stage where this week’s press conference was held to see sycophant Trump mouthing Putin’s lines. Trump has chosen sides, but he does not seem to be on our team. Whatever happened to “America First?”
The United States Constitution spells out the oath of office of the president. It includes the line, “to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
We saw Trump trying to walk back his audio-recorded British interview where he trashed Prime Minister Theresa May, so it would not be surprising for him to try to walk back his oath. Fortunately there’s lots of video of it, and of course, all those millions who attended the inauguration can serve as witnesses.
Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution states in part, “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
This week we witnessed the most direct and specific evidence (there has been much more) that Donald Trump has adhered to our “Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
In the spy business when a person comes under the influence and control of a foreign government, that person is referred to as an “asset.” We don’t know for sure just yet how true that is about Donald Trump, but his words and actions consistently point to his loyalty and commitment to Vladimir Putin. He has not spoken a single negative word about Putin. His responsibilities as president to preserve, protect and defend the United States Constitution are being ignored. His priorities, for whatever personal or financial reasons Trump may have, seem to lie elsewhere. Why?
