[yt_dropcap type=”square” font=”” size=”14″ color=”#000″ background=”#fff” ] A [/yt_dropcap] devious way for Trump to divert Congress from the investigation of Russia’s role in the 2016 US election and any links between Moscow and the Trump campaign, is that of shifting the focus to the possibility of illegal leaks of classified information and whether Trump and his associates with ties to Russia were caught up in incidental collection by surveillance targeting foreigners.
Rep. Schiff, the ranking Democrat investigating the matter, declared recently that “I think his tweets tell the story, and the story is look over there – at leaks, and look over there – at anything the Obama administration we can claim did wrong on incidental collection or anything else. But whatever you do, under no circumstances look here, at me or at Russia.”
Trump has repeatedly tweeted that the reports on Russian election meddling is as “fake news” and “witch hunts” and has denounced leakers of classified information on the issue. He is desperately attempting to divert attention to leakers and surveillance.
Meanwhile White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Sunday there was no evidence of Trump collusion with Russia to win the election. “It’s time to move on,” she told Fox News.
The plot thickens. Stay tuned. The White House’s “apprentices” are learning fast how to jump through loops of fire, and how to create alternate facts, but do they have enough time to avoid impeachment and/or jail?
There is already talk making the rounds suggesting that some will eventually go to jail and that impeachment procedures ought to be initiated. Some 51% of women in America think the sooner they begin the better. It is bound to get more dramatic even as many enjoy the comedic-like reality show being presently staged. Stay tuned for more vignettes on the Caligula Presidency.
