The American people have never been given an answer why Trump invited Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, and Ambassador/Spy, Sergey Kislyak, to the Oval Office just two days after he fired FBI Director, James Comey. We only know that the meeting was secret, and arranged by Vladimir Putin. Only Russian cameramen were allowed inside, and filmed a sarcastic response from Lavrov regarding Comey’s firing. I have asked the question that we, the people, have a right to know; ‘was Putin complicit in Trump’s decision to fire Mr. Comey?’
Today Putin joked about the incident himself.
“What’s the difference between him and Mr [Edward] Snowden then? He’s a human rights activist then, not an intelligence chief,” Putin said. “At any rate, if this entails some kind of prosecutions against him [Comey], we are ready to grant him asylum in Russia. He should be aware of that,”he added.
Putin’s satirical statement was funny to him, but only adds to the suspicion about his connection to Trump. Putin also spoke about the sanctions imposed by the Senate, feigning a lack of understanding about why most Americans do not trust him. His interference in our election was in fact an act of war.
“The Russophobia currently evolving in the United States – we can see it and we believe that this is the outcome of a spiraling domestic struggle for power.”
Where and when is his next ‘stand-up’ comedy date scheduled?
Putin is a madman who murders his critics, has assumed autocratic power, and has stolen money from his country which many believe makes him the wealthiest man in the world, worth an estimated $100 billion.
The fact that Trump quickly accepted Putin’s request that he meet with Lavrov and Kislyak is more proof that the two men are close associates. Putin is making a fool of Trump and his supporters; he is laughing at our election, and the changes in our country as a result of Trump’s illegitimate presidency.
To Trump supporters; you made the biggest mistake in American history, but you can correct it in November of 2018. Vote all Republicans out of office and remove all power from what has become ‘America’s nightmare.’
Please re-post; thank you.
