Could The Russians Have Succeeded More Fully?

May 11, 2017

Oh, when one first starts to deceive… as President Trump has done.

In the wake of James Comey’s firing by Trump there has been accusations, recriminations and even threats of resignations.  Meanwhile the Russian foreign minister and ambassador were giddy and all smiles in the Oval Office–where no U.S. press were invited but the Russian press was allowed.  One can not make this stuff up!   Let us not forget what the firing of Comey all about.  This is about the Russians and their attempts to influence U.S. politics.   I ask my readers to ponder one question today.

Could the Russians possibly have succeeded more fully?  Trump is at war with his own agencies and own Congress that I view as a constitutional crisis. Putin finds himself winning.

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe told the Senate Intelligence Committee that his fired predecessor, James Comey, had not lost the confidence of rank-and-file FBI agents, contradicting a claim by the White House. “Director Comey enjoyed broad support within the FBI and still does to this day,” McCabe said.

Meanwhile, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has requested to meet with the Senate Intelligence Committee, including committee chairman Richard Burr and vice-chairman Mark Warner.  Rosenstein was seen walking into the Senate Intelligence Committee space as the panel was holding a hearing on worldwide threats.

The request came after President Donald Trump unceremoniously fired FBI Director James Comey, citing a three-page letter from Rosenstein questioning the director’s fitness to serve. It also came amid reports that Rosenstein, a well-regarded federal prosecutor, was furious over the White House’s characterization of his apparent recommendation and even threatened to quit.
