A To The Point question that many do NOT want broght up in lieu of the Robert Mueller investigation of all things Trump….
…from the Intercept…..
I FIND IT hard to write about Donald Trump.
It is not that he is a complicated subject. Quite the opposite. It is that everything about him is so painfully obvious. He is a low-rent racist, a shameless misogynist, and an unbalanced narcissist. He is an unrelenting liar and a two-bit white identity demagogue. Lest anyone forget these things, he goes out of his way each day to remind us of them.
At the end of the day, he is certain to be left in the dustbin of history, alongside Father Coughlin and Gen. Edwin Walker. (Exactly – you don’t remember them, either.)
What more can I add?
Unfortunately, another word also describes him: president. The fact that such an unstable egomaniac occupies the White House is the greatest threat to the national security of the United States in modern history.
Which brings me to the only question about Donald Trump that I find really interesting: Is he a traitor?
Did he gain the presidency through collusion with Russian President Vladimir Putin?
One year after Trump took office, it is still unclear whether the president of the United States is an agent of a foreign power. Just step back and think about that for a moment.
The fact that such an unstable egomaniac occupies the White House is the greatest threat to U.S. national security in modern history.
His 2016 campaign is the subject of an ongoing federal inquiry that could determine whether Trump or people around him worked with Moscow to take control of the U.S. government. Americans must now live with the uncertainty of not knowing whether the president has the best interests of the United States or those of the Russian Federation at heart…..
U.S. law – 18 U.S. Code § 2381 – states that “[w]hoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere” is guilty of treason. …
Note from the PDog….
The above linked piece gives an extensive lay out of information from an intelligence point of view of the extensive Russian program to throw the 2016 election AWAY from Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump….
The Russian effort WAS a success….
The effort to tie Trump to it from my read is NOT anything close to slam duck that would be needed to actually PROVE Trump participated in a treasonable way….Trump HAS tried to deny that the Russian’s did what we KNOW they did…That is NOT a crime…To stop the investigations would be for 99% of anyone the DOJ was going after…But the President of the United States gets a get out of jail free pass unlkike any other place…
It is my view that Robert Mueller’s best case against Donald Trump is going to be along the financial path….It has not been floated….But Mueller probably COULD charge Trump with financial indiscretions Civilly…..
