With the freshly released bombshell book by Michael Wolff, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House”, our attention has never been so sharply focused on the current shocking administration.
The White House and its cronies keep saying that the meeting on June 26, 2016 with a contingent of Russians was merely to talk about adoptions. This is legalese technical bullshit; and yes, they may be talking about adoptions, but that is a code word for The Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act. They were using the adoptions because the Russians used adoptions as a retaliatory move against U.S. sanctions. The Russians wanted to talk about the U.S. sanctions, using this technicality to be able to claim that they did not lie. Bullies are masters of deflection. This is a deflection. And the GOP should call him out on it.
Shortly after the June 26th meeting, I wrote a blog, which discusses Bill Browder’s whose highly acclaimed book, Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice (Simon & Schuster; 2015) and details the corruption and murderous heart of the Putin regime.
The White House and the GOP are being totally disingenuous about this, and certainly are being intellectually dishonest with the American public; and no one is challenging them. By protecting Trump and his family, cronies and others, they are complicit in all of this. And November can’t come soon enough!
