Vladimir Putin is coming to Washington. It’s time for another round of private meetings, even as the Senate has unanimously voted to block a move which Trump called “incredible.” Somehow the idea of handing over Americans to the Russians for questioning, in exchange for their assistance in questioning the twelve Russians indicted in the Mueller probe last week, may have seemed a bit un-American. With a 98-0 vote, the Senate spoke.
Clearly, Donald Trump has been played again on an international stage; Putin had a clear agenda for the meeting. As the Democrats tried and failed to subpoena the translator for POTUS, the White House scrambled to explain Trump’s flip-flopping opinions of the Russians. No matter how many times he muddles the facts, he always ends up on the side of Russia.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was again put in the position to of having to clean up Donald Trump’s mind games. It truly appears that our country has turned into a long-distance real-life video game in the hands of Vladimir Putin. Time magazine’s cover this week has morphed the two men into one, and Trump seems to feel no obligation to share the details of their meeting, only stating that he looks forward to begin implementing the issues they discussed.
The Russians seem to know what went on in the two-hour private meeting and are ready to get right to work on the secret agreements, even as Americans have no idea what occurred, or what was promised in that meeting. As Donald Trump continues to claim great success from his Russia Summit, he continues to call the press the enemy of the people. Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, like many others, is questioning out loud whether Putin has something on Trump. Maybe it’s the Pee Pee Tape. It’s something we all should be asking.
