[yt_dropcap type=”square” font=”” size=”14″ color=”#000″ background=”#fff” ] D [/yt_dropcap]onald Trump is unlikely to finish his first term as President, according to the leading Democrat on the committee, Senator Mark Warner, looking into alleged Russian interference in the US election, and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich. They put the odds at two to one.

Senator Warner has previously declared that the Kremlin had paid an army of more than 1000 people to create fake anti-Hillary Clinton news stories targeting key swing states and the investigation now has “specific, concrete and corroborative evidence of collusion…discussions took place between people in Trump’s campaign and agents of Russian influence relating to the use of hacked material.”

All of the above is beside the dossier passed along by the British government detailing the collusion between the Kremlin and Donald Trump last December. It alleges the existence of a sophisticated Russian programme of “cultivating, supporting and assisting” Trump as he campaigned for the presidency. Trump has of course dismissed the allegations as “fake news.” Indeed, fake news within a fake and intellectually bankrupt presidency.

Professor Paparella has earned a Ph.D. in Italian Humanism, with a dissertation on the philosopher of history Giambattista Vico, from Yale University. He is a scholar interested in current relevant philosophical, political and cultural issues; the author of numerous essays and books on the EU cultural identity among which A New Europe in search of its Soul, and Europa: An Idea and a Journey. Presently he teaches philosophy and humanities at Barry University, Miami, Florida. He is a prolific writer and has written hundreds of essays for both traditional academic and on-line magazines among which Metanexus and Ovi. One of his current works in progress is a book dealing with the issue of cultural identity within the phenomenon of “the neo-immigrant” exhibited by an international global economy strong on positivism and utilitarianism and weak on humanism and ideals.
