The chummy White House visit—photos of the president yukking it up with Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak were released by the Russian Foreign Ministry since no U.S. press was allowed to cover the visit—had been one of Putin’s asks in his recent phone call with Trump, And indeed the White House acknowledged this to me later Wednesday. “He chose to receive him because Putin asked him to,” a White House spokesman said of Trump’s Lavrov meeting. “Putin did specifically ask on the call when they last talked.”– Susan Glasser, Politico
Say that again… “He chose to receive him because Putin asked him to,”. WTF?
Trump isn’t even trying that hard to hide this anymore.
And apparently dictator in waiting Trumpy was asking Comey for some kind of loyalty oath.
The GOPers own this dumpster fire, 100%, unless they stand up now and oppose this transparent power grab, they own this and should never be trusted again.
