Will Trump turn a blind eye towards Russia?
Was May 9th, 2017 a turning point in history? President Trump's administration was under investigation for having had contact with Sergey Kislyak, who is considered a spy and a recruiter of spies by US intelligence officials. Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, who was a surrogate of the Trump campaign, certainly met with Kislyak at least twice while Trump was still merely a presidential candidate; Sessions failed to disclose the encounters during his confirmation hearings as Attorney General. There are others on the Trump campaign that also had contacts with Russia, including Mike Flynn, which is what the Russiagate investigations are looking into. On May 9th, 2017 Trump fired the head of the FBI, Mike Comey, who was heading up the FBI’s part of the investigation into the Trump presidential campaign. Mike Comey was in charge of the FBI’s part of the Russiagate investigation and Trump fired him. By the way Comey found out he was fired, not by a phone call or in person, but on TV as though he was a contestant on a TV show! Trump firing Comey is similar in some ways to the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973, when Nixon ordered the firing of Archibald Cox, who was a special prosecutor looking into the Watergate burglary and subsequent cover up that led to the Watergate scandal. The similarities of the two firings are undeniable!
Or will President Trump stand resolute against Putin and other world leaders?
On CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin called the move a "grotesque abuse of power”. Dan Rather said, of the Comey firing: "What We Have Here Is Clearly A Cover-Up”. Rather might have some experience in these matters as he was a reporter during the original Watergate scandal. These are just two examples of the press reaction to Trump firing Comey.
Is the future flag of the Russo-American empire?
Then, the next day, May 10th, 2017, Trump himself actually met with Kislyak in the White House. Trump also met with the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Oddly enough the only news outlet that was allowed to cover and photograph this event was TASS, the official Russian news agency! If anyone doubted that Trump had any bias towards Russia, their doubts were demolished by the circumstances and timing of this event. Very Nixonian! In case no one understood that, Trump met with Nixon's Secretary of State Henry Kissinger later in the White House that same day!
Trump is rarely ever seen smiling but he is certainly smiling at Kislyak!
Where it will all go from here? Will another Watergate type prosecutor emerge? Or will this FBI enquiry find the truth with new FBI Director Andrew McCabe? WARNING! This is what true pundit thinks of McCabe. What about subpoenas that have been served? Will we ever know the truth? The Strangest Adventures begin now!
Kissinger and President Trump in the White House, it smells like 1973 in here!
