As Donald Trump’s son’s crimes come to light, America is seething. But no one is taking the news as hard as the White House. With the treasonous act that helped get Trump elected now “in the family,” the president has little hope of skirting responsibility. And since the news about Russia and the election hacking have started revealing interesting connections to Trump and his family, the White House has been imploding. And it’s not a good thing for America.
According to the New York Times, “blaming one another for the decisions of the last few days…[Trump] has trained his ire on Marc E. Kasowitz.”
But it appears that Trump’s long-time lawyer helped Trump focus his rage on Reince Priebus, the president’s chief of staff.
Whenever Trump and his family start a scandal, Preibus is the one who has to clean up the mess. And they always leak a rumor about how Preibus is about to be fired – but it never happens. Instead, Trump wants to wait out the storm until the media moves onto his next scandal.
Reportedly, the president’s daughter Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner (her husband), and first lady Melania Trump have all begged “the president to shake up his team – most specifically by replacing Reince Preibus as the White House chief of staff,” the Washington Post reports.
Every month since Trump has become president, Preibus has been on the chopping block. But he might not survive the beheading this time.
The Washington Post writes, “Trump…enraged that the Russia cloud still hangs over his presidency. [Trump’s senior advisors] have begun what could be an extensive campaign to try to discredit some of the journalists who have been reporting on the matter…research the reporters’ previous work, in some cases going back years.”
Now that Trump’s son has been caught working with Russian informants, it is clear that the family was willing to do whatever it took to win the presidency. With the national intelligence agencies all saying that Russia hacked the election, the evidence continues to connect Trump and his team to the international scandal. And with his son facing potential treason charges, this is not going away anytime soon.
As the evidence of Donald Trump Jr’s meeting with the Russian informant continue to unravel, it seems the truth is much darker than what the Trumps want to admit. It was not a meeting about “Russian adoptions” but instead a meeting held in the Trump Tower where a Russian informant met with Trump Jr to offer him “dirt on Hillary Clinton” in the hopes of defaming her later that summer.
The internet is furious that Trump and his family are connected to Russian spies. Here are some comments shared on Mother Jones:
“The best defense for the utterly guilty is an aggressive offense. It’s also classic passive-aggressive behavior…”
“The Russia-related information that’s slowly but surely dis-integrating the Trump administration is being provided by whistle-blowers who are concerned about crimes, cover-ups and risky behaviors by government officials that are threats to national security but are being hidden from both the public whose rights and security are being threatened, and from the Congress whose job it is (allegedly) to investigate and act on these threats,” shared Dean Barbour.
What do you think should happen to Trump Jr and Trump Sr?
