Actually, many people are once again speculating on just what might be in a Putin/Russian-held Trump dossier…because liege turns (on a dime) into lackey when Vlad’s the subject.
The former C.I.A. director John Brennan pulled no punches on Wednesday when he was asked why President Trump had congratulated his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, for his victory in a rigged election, even after Mr. Trump’s national security staff warned him not to.
“I think he’s afraid of the president of Russia,” Mr. Brennan said, on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program, of the phone call on Tuesday between the two presidents. “The Russians, I think, have had long experience with Mr. Trump and may have things they could expose.”
The possibility that Mr. Putin could have some hold on the American president has lurked in the background over the past year as Mr. Trump displayed a mystifying affection for the Russian leader and ignored or excused his aggressive behavior and nefarious activities, most important, his interference in the 2016 campaign, a subject of the special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
What’s the line? Is is irresponsible to speculate? It is irresponsible not to.
Pee tape? Who knows? But they’ve likely propped up the rat’s nest that comprise Trump’s assets enough to own him outright…while Stormy Daniels et al have plenty to say when it comes to the salacious stuff.
And I can’t believe either/both are…topics of serious discussion in the political press. Goddamn.
