This morning has been interesting…..
Last night the intelliegence community leaked out that in fact the Trump people was in constant contact with Russian officals ALL thru the 2016 Presidential campaign….
ALL THRU THE CAMPAIGN……
While the Republicans and Trump where beating Hillary Clinton down as a ‘bad person’ and knocking her email and server usage?
They where talking to the Russians….
This morning Donald Trump tweets that the whole story, which is sourced by several is ‘fake news’…..
Over in the Congress?
Lowr level Republican Congressmen have begun to move for a ‘bipartisan’ Congressional investigation of the Trump/Russian contacts…..
The leadership of the Congress…Republicans Paul Ryan in the House and Mitch McConnell in the Senate want NOTHING to do with tackling this issue which is getting bigger and Bigger and BIGGER by the moment….
They have been talking about leaks….
It seems that the Intelligence community is the ONLY people that have the balls to STAND UP AN DELIEVER against what seems to be underhandedness in the top of the American Government….
By the Way?
Now that we KNOW that President Obama KNEW about the Russian/Trump contact’s WTF didn’t HE do something ?
Did he think so strongly that Hillary Clinton would win that he didn’t thinik he had to speak up?
NOT A GOOD LOOK in hindsight….
In a series of tweets Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump blasted reporting on his campaign’s ties with Russian intelligence officials as “conspiracy theories and blind hatred.”
“The fake news media is going crazy with their conspiracy theories and blind hatred. @MSNBC & @CNN are unwatchable. @foxandfriends is great!” Trump tweeted.
Both MSNBC and CNN led Wednesday morning shows with a New York Times report published Tuesday night that said members of Trump’s campaign had multiple communications with senior Russian intelligence officials before the US election, as CNN White House video producer Elizabeth Landers observed.
Landers also said Fox News had not reported on the Times article Wednesday morning.
In a follow-up tweet, Trump dismissed the “Russian connection non-sense” as a media attempt to cover up the mistakes in his presidential rival Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
“This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign,” Trump tweeted….
A number of Republicans from both chambers displayed skepticism about the need for a deeper investigation of the Trump administration’s actions on Russia — a stunning reversal for a party that for decades has preached a hawkish approach to dealing with Russia.
But other Republicans joined the call for an investigation into Flynn.
Senator John Cornyn of Texas, the second-ranking Republican, said the standing committees with intelligence oversight should launch an investigation, but he demurred when asked if Flynn should testify before Congress. “I think it’s symbolic of somebody with a distinguished military career making a bad mistake,” he told CNN.
Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri, a Republican member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said the latest revelations about Flynn should be added to the existing investigation into Russia. Both chambers of Congress launched probes last month into Russia’s role in the hacking during the 2016 election…..
McConnell makes some wiggle room for himself….
…..’I mean, under the Constitution, all of our actions are subject to judicial review,” McConnell (R-Ky.) told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in an interview taped on Tuesday that aired Wednesday morning.
“All of the president’s actions?” host Joe Scarborough followed up?
“Yes, all of us, both Congress and president and that’s, of course, happening,”
