This week’s bombshell from Donald Trump Jr. regarding his meeting with Russian operatives is conformation that telling the truth is not something that comes easy for members of the Trump family. The fact that Donald Trump Jr. seemingly has such a short memory regarding anything Russian, but he has no problem negotiating a hotel or resort transaction is strange. His selective memory is much the same as his Father’s.
During a national debate about the Russian influence on the 2016 Presidential election one would think that members of the President’s inner circle would ensure that their actions are beyond reproach. Yet the Trump administration has proven to be the most divisive and controversial in recent history. The campaign was wrapped in insult, sexism, bigotry, and violence, not to mention HATE; and unfortunately this trend continues.
If the reports are accurate that Donald Trump Jr. did in fact agree to meet with a Russian operative on the pretense of receiving damaging information against candidate Hillary Clinton than there may be evidence of collusion. If the meeting took place and not reported to the FBI, then by law a federal crime may have been committed. And if the meeting truly was not about damaging information to the Clinton campaign, why were Jarrod Kushner and former Campaign Manager Paul Manafort invited to attend? These questions and more will undoubtedly be on the minds of the Special Prosecutor and the various Congressional investigative committees’, as well as in the minds of the American people.
The lists of issues that drive nails into the coffin of the Trump Administration grows, with no end in sight. Congress is so polarized that it cannot function, and the Whitehouse so confused that even seasoned news reporters are challenged to get at the truth when a news conference is held. Republicans campaigned on seizing the House, Senate and the Whitehouse as being the key to good governing and for putting the country on the right path, but this has yet to happen. It appears Donald Trump Sr. sold his supporters a bunch of baloney and Donald Trump Jr. is attempting to feed the American people a bunch of bull; in both cases the Trumps show expertise in spinning the truth like no other Presidential family ever has.
But I’m Just Saying!
