“THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE HAS, AFTER A 14 MONTH LONG IN-DEPTH INVESTIGATION, FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION OR COORDINATION BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIA TO INFLUENCE THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.” – Trump tweet 3-12-18
“If Russians have leverage over the President, GOP has decided that it would rather not know.” – Rep. Adam Schiff
I guess none of us should really be surprised that “our” President used ALL CAPS like an eight year old to announce to the world that California’s Rep. Devin Nunes is his bitch. The House Intelligence investigation was doomed to fail from the very beginning, Nunes made sure of that. We certainly don’t need another investigation but I personally would love to know what kind of Polaroid pictures Trump has of Nunes or what he has promised him.
And then this just happened, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson accused the Russians of “the attempted murder of a private citizen on the soil of a sovereign nation — and we are outraged that Russia appears to have again engaged in such behavior” yesteday in reference to the Russians alleged nerve agent attack in the U.K. And how did Trump react to this statement? Trump just fired him; “Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!”
British Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday that it was “highly likely” that the Kremlin was responsible for the nerve agent attack and that the substance was a type known to be developed by Russia. The official White House response from Sarah Huckabee Sanders; “The use of a highly lethal nerve agent on UK soil is an outrage. The attack is reckless, indiscriminate and irresponsible.” Notice anything missing from that statement?
Despite the announcement in ALL CAPS, despite what Devin Nunes “impartial” findings have uncovered, Trump smells like Russian shit. If we survive this mess and don’t have to learn to speak Russian in the coming months and years I can’t wait to read the back story of what the Russians have on this ding-dong. It must be BIG (all caps).
