Prior to Trump’s meeting with Putin, a reporter asked him what they would discuss. Trump said: ”That is none of your business.”
Fact check: Oh yes, it is our business. Trump works for us. His meeting with Putin is official business of the United States, as such, it falls under the Presidential Records Act, which requires a sitting President to ”preserve and make public all records that relate to the performance of her official duties.”
Hmm— during Trump’s last meeting with Putin, he confiscated the translator’s notes.
Is this how honest men behave?
Donald Trump was in Japan this week, where he met with his bestie, Russian President Vladimir Putin. During a press conference with the two, a reporter asked about whether Trump had warned Putin not to interfere in US democracy. Trump responded:
“Yes, of course, I will.”
He smirked and turned to Putin:
“Don’t meddle in the election, President.”
Then he pointed to the Russian interpreter and repeated it:
“Don’t meddle in the election.”
Trump smiled, Putin chuckled, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo giggled, and great fun was had by all.
It’s a joke because just last week Trump said he would accept any information offered to him from a foreign adversary, and he would not report such an instance to the FBI, because he said there is nothing wrong with it.
It being TREASON
During that same press conference, Trump said to Putin, on the subject of journalists:
“Get rid of them. Fake news is a great term, isn’t it? You don’t have this problem in Russia, but we do.” ~Trump
Trump bonded with Putin by threatening journalists this week on what happened to be the anniversary of the shooting at the Capital Gazette.
A side note— Trump has several wingmen without whom he would likely already be Paul Manafort’s cellmate: McConnell, Barr, Graham, Kavanaugh, McCarthy, Nunes, Gaetz, etc. They are all traitors to our democracy.
During another press conference this week, Trump attacked Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and the entire Democratic Party, while he defended Mohammed bonesaw-bin Salman and expounded Putin’s achomlishments [sic].
”He says he didn’t interfere in the 2016 elections, and, come on, how many times are you going to push the guy on that point? The Russian president kind of makes sense when he says that Western-style liberalism is dead, at least when you consider the sorry state of a couple of Democratic-run cities in California.”~Trump
I believe this is an appropriate place to interject a quote from the Mueller Report:
”The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion,” ~Special Counsel Robert Mueller
Trump is methodically destroying our democracy.
Remember President Jimmy Carter, a genuine human being who alongside his wife, former first lady Rosalynn, still builds houses for Habitat for Humanity at the age of 94? This week he had this to say about Donald Trump:
“Every day, we send a disgraceful signal around the world, that this is what the present US government stands for, and that is torture and kidnapping of little children, separation from their parents and deprivation of those who are incarcerated.” 39th President of the United States, Jimmy Carter
And this was a direct hit to Trump’s fragile ego:
”There’s no doubt that the Russians did interfere in the election. And I think the interference, although not yet quantified if fully investigated would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016. He lost the election, and he was put into office because the Russians interfered on his behalf, ” ~ President Jimmy Carter
Trump responded by saying Carter:
“He’s like the forgotten president, and I understand why they say that he was not a good president.”
If you are still unconvinced that Trump is a traitor, consider this, Russian journalists were allowed in the room when Trump met Putin this week, but American journalists were not.
Trump has excluded the American media before. In the days following his firing of FBI Director James Comey, Trump invited Russian dignitaries Kislyak and Lavrov, and their press team into the Oval Office but banned the American press.
Are we there yet?
