FBI launched an inquiry into whether Trump was working for Russia

Recommended Posts

ctm   

When President Donald Trump hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in the Oval Office on Wednesday just hours after firing the FBI director who was overseeing an investigation into whether Trump’s team colluded with the Russians, he was breaking with recent precedent at the specific request of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

 

The chummy White House visit—photos of the president yukking it up with Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak were released by the Russian Foreign Ministry since no U.S. press was allowed to cover the visit—had been one of Putin’s asks in his recent phone call with Trump, and indeed the White House acknowledged this to me later Wednesday. “He chose to receive him because Putin asked him to,” a White House spokesman said of Trump’s Lavrov meeting. “Putin did specifically ask on the call when they last talked.”

 

The images of Trump putting his arm genially on Lavrov’s back—and a later White House official readout of the meeting that said Trump “emphasized his desire to build a better relationship between the United States and Russia”—couldn’t have come at a more fraught political moment for Trump, amid a barrage of bipartisan criticism of his firing of FBI Director James Comey.

 

On Wednesday morning before meeting with Trump, Lavrov even cracked a joke about his hosts’ political predicament, laughingly claiming not to have heard of the Comey firing while standing alongside Trump’s secretary of state, Rex Tillerson.

In other words, Lavrov was right where he has always wanted to be Wednesday: mocking the United States while being welcomed in the Oval Office by the president himself.

I saw the same thing. Also one of the last things Obama did was to sign an executive order making it easier for these investigations. 

 

They knew what Trump was up to and involved with. 

 

Obama made a mistake not going public this all of this before the election. The American people should have known

Why would the people that elected Trump believe the Kenyan Muslim over the reality TV star that Make Racism Great Again?

Because that's small fraction of overall people. Trump got a lot of independants and Obama voters.

Trump has concealed details of his face-to-face encounters with Putin from senior officials in administration

 

President Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials, current and former U.S. officials said.

My dad also voted for Trump, though he no longer supports him and his support was more because he didn’t like Hillary (hated the Benghazi and e-mail shit). My dad voted for Phil last year is that tells you anything. 

 

My mom has not given any substantive reason. She just goes on random tirades about softness and political correctness.
