After a day of testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee, Comey and Rogers drop some big news. The Trump campaign and the Russian government are being investigated for collusion during the 2016 election. Comey flatly said there was no basis to Trump’s claim of wire tapping by Obama.
EXTRA! EXTRA! Reuters News: Rex Tillerson, Secretary of State has cancelled April meeting with NATO heads, and INSTEAD is planning on visiting Russia.
When this news broke, Rep. Adam Schiff ranking Democrat on the House Intel Committee was on the Rachel Maddow Show. I did not tape the show, however he basically said, “After what the Russians have done to this country, the only imaginable reason Tillerson would go to Moscow would be to return the Order of Friendship Medal that Putin gave him.”
Well, said, Rep. Schiff.
My comment is, WOW!!! Pretty fucking ballsy. Secretary Tillerson, you are acting very strange, and your well known affiliation with the Russian government does not help your image. Your boss, the President, and his campaign are under investigation for possible collusion with the Russians. Hmmm. More Russians. It’s Trump and the Russians, Sessions and the Russians, Manafort and the Russians, and you and the Russians. How many Russians are in this story? Right now, it looks like way too many.
When you are Secretary of State you take the press with you when you travel, its that simple. You are now employed by the people of the United States America and we want to see our officials in action. You are not the CEO of Exxon Mobil. Maybe they thought it was okay to slink around in the shadows but the American citizens don’t like that kind of behavior.
If this news is correct, I think the Congress should insist the President fire your ass. There is absolutely no conceivable moral reason for a visit by the Secretary of State of the United States to Moscow. To do what? Hold court with that murdering thug, Putin, colluding on lifting sanctions, and opening up the Arctic oil reserves to drilling? I can smell the corruption from here. Careful, Mr. Tillerson, you are standing on thin ice.
The Editorial Desk at Calamity Politics is kept busy trying to decipher the nutty, stumbling, bumbling and incompetent statements being issued by the Trump White House. Every day a new story.Every day a new distraction. Every day another lie. presidential lie. As a political analyst, commentator and progressive liberal organizer I want every one to be ready to agitate our Congressional representatives until they are scared shitless. Nothing shapes up an elected official as much as a potential threat to their elected position. Both Trump and Tillerson, like the Russkies way too much. Why? We need to find out.
The battlefield of right, versus left, is a twisted and distorted terrain. It is hard to navigate the U.S. political scene without getting emotional. I’m Darlene, and I am here to pull my hair, and scream profanities, for your amusement.
