Trump and the Russia Thing

Last Tuesday Trump addressed Congress in a speech that was tedious, divisive, and dishonest – but because he got through the address without sounding like a deranged buffoon, the media, in their never-ending effort to normalize the idiot Trump, hailed the address as ‘presidential,’ co-workers in my office Wednesday remarked that Trump ‘did good,’ and Trump supporters likely believed that this failed administration had ‘turned the corner’ and was on its way to winning reelection in 2020.

Then it was reported Wednesday that Sessions had lied to Congress during his confirmation hearing, that he indeed had made contact with Russian officials during last year’s presidential campaign, when during his hearing he said he had not.

The ‘Russia Thing’ isn’t going to go away, it will continue to hobble the administration for the foreseeable future, undermining any success it might realize.

And the more the administration continues to oppose efforts to get to the truth, opposes a comprehensive, bi-partisan, objective investigation by a special prosecutor, and continues to lie to conceal Trump’s involvement with Russia, the greater the likelihood the ‘Russia Thing’ ends this administration come 2020.
