The American people are being treated to a woefully amateurish session of political spin and propaganda from President-elect Donald Trump’s new press secretary, Sean Spicer.
Spicer was recently a guest on ABC’s “This Week” where he made numerous pathetic attempts to deflect the very serious questions surrounding Trump’s election victory. The Trump team is desperate to change the media’s narrative about the Russian government’s involvement in stealing the presidential election. The CIA has found there was plenty of evidence to substantiate the allegations, and the FBI corroborated the CIA’s findings. Spicer asked:
Why aren’t we talking about the other influences on the election? Why aren’t we talking about Hillary Clinton getting debate questions ahead of time? No one is asking those questions. The fact is that everyone wants to make Donald Trump admit to certain things. When do we talk about the other side, which is what did Hillary Clinton do to influence the election? Is she being punished?
Apparently, when one falls under Trump’s spell they are unable to balance reality in their minds. The concept that a question being given to Hillary Clinton prior to the debate as being equal to, or worse, than the Russian government infringing upon the sovereignty of the presidential election is as laughable as it is ridiculous. Spicer’s line of questioning also shows just how little of a defense Trump and his team have for their blatant power grab whilst using the service of a sworn enemy of the United States.
Just what “punishment” would Spicer find appropriate for a person working on the inside of the presidential debates to receive for passing information to Clinton? While mildly displeasing, the action was certainly not, by any definition of the word, a crime.
The efforts to undermine the American people’s faith in government, and to engage in espionage with the Russian government against the Democratic party to damage their presidential nominee was nothing short of treason. All involved in the debacle will be called to account for their seditious acts, and the bell soon tolls for them.
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has slated an official hearing into the matter which will begin on Jan. 5th. A surrogate and former foreign policy adviser of Trump, Carter Page, is alleged to have written a threatening letter to McCain in hopes of dashing the hearing — but it is going to take more than paltry words on a piece of paper to halt the truth about Trump’s Russian dealings from coming to light.
