Donald Trump has been under FBI counterintelligence investigation for a year and a half because he’s a Kremlin operative, and he’s been so paranoid about this, he’s even been hiding the notes from his meetings with Putin from his own staff. That’s what we’ve learned in the past few days, thanks to some great reporting. Not surprisingly, Trump isn’t taking the news particularly well.
After the news first broke about the counterintelligence probe, Donald Trump angrily and incoherently called in to Fox News, where he spoke with Jeanine Pirro. She asked him point blank if he was working for the Russians, and shockingly, he refused to directly answer the question. After this made for big headlines, Trump finally announced today that he is definitely not working for the Russians. Well okay then. Then he went off the deep end.
Trump posted this whacked out tweet aimed at the reporters who are doing such a stellar job of piecing together his treason: “The Fake News gets crazier and more dishonest every single day. Amazing to watch as certain people covering me, and the tremendous success of this administration, have truly gone MAD! Their Fake reporting creates anger and disunity. Take two weeks off and come back rested. Chill!”
Really? His big plan for preventing the media from digging up the rest of his treason timeline is to sarcastically tell them to go on vacation? This guy has nothing left in his simplistic brute-force playbook, and there’s nothing he can do to prevent reporters from fully exposing him. Robert Mueller is about to make it all public anyway.
