Just when we thought nothing could shock us anymore, this evening we learned that the FBI opened a counterintelligence probe to expose that Donald Trump is working for Russia. So much for mere collusion; this is espionage and treason level stuff. Trump seems speechless at the moment, but White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has plenty to say right now, and let’s just say she’s not taking it well.
The New York Times revealed this evening that the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Donald Trump began more than a year and a half ago, after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey and then admitted that the move had taken pressure off him with regard to Russia. In other words, the FBI interpreted Trump’s words as an admission that he had fired Comey at the instruction of his Kremlin bosses.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued this berserk statement in response: “This is absurd. James Comey was fired because he’s a disgraced partisan hack, and his Deputy Andrew McCabe, who was in charge at the time, is a known liar fired by the FBI. Unlike President Obama, who let Russia and other foreign adversaries push America around, President Trump has actually been tough on Russia.”
Okay, so clearly, the pressure is getting to her as it’s further revealed to the public that she works for a Russian spy who’s only pretending to be the president. She also sounds like someone who’s very afraid she’s going down for obstruction of justice. But that’s nothing compared to the charges that Donald Trump is going down for; he’ll never set foot outside a solitary confinement cell again.
