President Donald J.Trump has a problem-he is melting down. He is melting down about the investigation into Russiagate, which is the investigation that asks the question–did Russia interfere with the election of 2016 to help Trump get elected? Trump has insisted since even before his administration began there was no collusion between his campaign and Russia, but the New York Times revealed there was a connection via Donald Trump Junior.
Is this as bad as it gets?
In July 2016 he had met with a Russian attorney that promised damaging information about the Hillary Clinton campaign. His admission of this meeting was a real bombshell, there was actually some possible proof of collusion.
Donnie Junior in happier days
DJT Jr attempted defusing the issue by posting the content of the emails on twitter. This prompted the New York Post, a newspaper known to be friendly towards Trump, to call Donald Trump Junior an idiot. Gentlemen’s Quarterly also called DJT Jr an idiot “of Towering Proportions”.
Before the revelations about the meeting, many voters thought the investigation onto Russian involvement with the election of 2016 was only a distraction but now, who knows? As a result of these revelations about the meeting Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr., and Paul Manafort head to the Senate for questioning. Kushner has already testified, then DJT Jr and Manafort are scheduled for July 26, 2017.
Another thing Trump is melting down about is Attorney General Jefferson Sessions, who had properly recused himself from involvement with the Russiagate investigation. Trump mentioned Sessions from the White House Rose Garden, recently. Trump said "I'm very disappointed with the attorney general, but we will see what happens. Time will tell. Time will tell.” Many sources claim Trump is considering firing Jeff Sessions. This hatred of Sessions is even more puzzling considering Jeff Sessions took a major risk by becoming the first United States senator to endorse Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in February 2016.
Republican South Carolina representative Trey Gowdy, recently offered some friendly advice to the Trump administration. He said it’s time for members of Trump's campaign to come clean about any meetings they had with Russian figures during the campaign to avoid the steady “drip, drip, drip” of information being made public about this investigation.
Certainly others have helpful advice for the Trump administration and perhaps we will hear from them in the future. For now, the future is possibly a very dark place for America. Certainly some people are deriving amusement from Russiagate but most people are not. Here at the Strangest Adventures we are not sure what to think or what will happen next. To quote Donald J. Trump “Time will tell.”
