Democrats Forget All The Times They Have Met With Russian Ambassador

Posted March 09, 2017

"And that's exactly what we've got.'" What the jest lacks in belly laughs it makes up for with insight. Their "moral convictions" were also switched off the day Obama's DOJ let former IRS official Lois Lerner off the hook for alleged criminal contempt of Congress for refusing to testify about the politically-motivated targeting of taxpayers.

While there has been much uncertainty about what Donald Trump will do as president, a majority of voters have said they expect him to fulfill the majority of his campaign promises within his first year in the White House.

In the middle of an airport security check with everyone staring at you is the most uncomfortable. A random pat down may include inspection of the head, neck, arms, torso, legs and feet.

Donald Trump met with Russia's USA ambassador last April at the height of the presidential election, it has emerged, despite, repeated and strenuous denials of any meeting with Kremlin officials before his inauguration.

Sessions briefly met Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, among other ambassadors, at a Heritage Foundation forum in July in Cleveland, and once in Sessions' Senate office in September.

Theresa May warns of Brexit's 'unintended consequences' that could split UK
The Scottish economy has fallen below United Kingdom levels of growth, with employment and productivity levels also struggling, Mr Mundell said.

Trump has notably been less than enthusiastic about the findings from the intelligence community and only admitted that Russian Federation likely had a role in pre-election hacks in January a month after the reports first came out. The second is that, at the least, Sessions misled the Senate. Then, just as the reverberations from the Sessions story were reaching a crescendo, The Indianapolis Star reported that Vice President Mike Pence used a private email account to conduct sensitive state business while he was governor of Indiana - and that the account once was hacked. It was apparent that the Russian government wanted Trump to win and was trying to damage Clinton. The Trump administration seems willing to go beyond that passivity and actually support Russian moves.

The Trump campaign has not explained why so many people on their team keep meeting with Russian officials, only to deny it. This overlooked the fact that the issue isn't in what capacity he met with the Russians, but whether he told the truth about meeting with them at all - regardless of whether it was as part of the Trump campaign, as a senator or as a candidate to be the principal ballerina for the Bolshoi Ballet. And, through it all, Republicans keep trying to reassure everyone there really is nothing to this whole Russian Federation business. Don't speak to people from Russian Federation ... The Trumpistas claim all this is a witch hunt. He easily could have released his tax returns to show whether he had business dealings with Russian Federation, but he refused. Both outcomes are bad. That can't have been that useful, even if they did. If he can't, then we're really in trouble. The real question at this point is: Why isn't the White House looking? That's why Trump and other Republicans are fighting this so hard.
