    FFS...

    During a 90-minute classified briefing with lawmakers on Thursday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin reportedly offered no credible answers when asked to defend his decision to lift sanctions on companies with links to Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska, who just so happens to be Putin’s buddy and Paul Manafort’s former paymaster. . . . .When pressed on critical questions, the secretary was “unresponsive,” . . .

    Probably the best moment of the briefing, though, came when Mnuchin—who has stonewalled Democratic inquiries into potentially suspicious financial dealings of the president, his family, and his campaign associates—told the assembled group that when it comes to the reasoning behind lifting sanctions on Deripaska’s companies, lawmakers should simply “trust” the administration.

    Gotta tell ya, it's uncharted territory. Never before has the problem with Soviet/Russian assets been with a POTUS and his apparatus with a Cult of Personality beholden and corrupted party (Russia infiltrated NRA etc).

    Very quietly I'm sure and unfortunately in ways the rules ordinarily don't permit because they presume the foxes aren't in charge of the henhouse. The POTUS usually has access to such material for example and we have already seen what Trump's appointments are like and the Devin Nunes types do to cover and tip off the POTUS, etc.

    When the FBI become so alarmed at the behaviour of POTUS that they open a counter intelligence investigation into his links with an enemy power, you know he's been up to something. He's probably going to jail. We're in uncharted waters as we've never seen a POTUS quite like this guy. He's no Eisenhower and the GOP will drop him and run for cover as soon as he's indicted.

    He went downhill very fast after that.

    More absolute insanity. Firstly, article is New York times---a discredited Trump hating rag. Finally, look at the FBI lawyer quoted in article, Lisa Page, Mr Trump stopping "Insurance Policy" Strzok's shag-buddy. Of course, these FBI slimeballs started an investigation. They'd just lost Leaking Comey and their asses were hanging in the wind.They're both no longer in FBI--dishonourably discharged. Shameful mudslinging article. Shows how desperate these scum are. Back to the drawing board bozos.

    NYT missed the story of century, and the Russian link to Trump was never fully explored by the US media - they fell into the trap of chasing a bullsh!t story about e-mail servers.
