In the midst of other big news surrounding the popular vote losing Donald Trump administration that releases almost constantly, it’s easy to forget for a minute that Trump and most around him are still very much the center of a huge investigation into corruption and collusion with Russia.
A couple of months back, Congress established a bipartisan attempt to back Trump to a corner as it pertains to Russia. Specifically, Congress took away Trump’s ability to ease sanctions on Russia by passing the essential legislation to remove his power, which subsequently leaves Trump essentially useless to Vladimir Putin.
Now, Trump is refusing to follow the law He signed, which has enabled Congress to back Trump into a corner, yet again, as pointed out by the Palmer Report:
Senators John McCain and Ben Cardin have come together to formally call out Trump for his failure to implement the sanctions bill. This is crucial because McCain is a Republican and Cardin is a Democrat, meaning this is once again a bipartisan effort. It forces Trump to now very publicly deal with a no-win issue that he’s been desperate to sidestep for rather obvious reasons.
Donald Trump must now quickly decide between two bad choices. He can go ahead and implement the Russian sanctions, which will anger Putin, and could prompt Russia to retaliate by leaking blackmail material about him. Or, if Trump refuses to promptly implement the sanctions, leaders of both political parties are preparing to publicly push the issue. Doing so would make Trump look even more guilty on Russia in the eyes of the public – at a time when he’s already awash in so many other kinds of exploding scandals.
How many scandals does this guy must get involved in before these eventually brings him down?
It seems like the Russia scandal is the big one, but maybe we will be amazed and something just under the surface is actually what does it. Either way, it’s clear the guy is not going to continue as President, and that is the one thing giving me hope that America is going to be great again, like it was before Jan. 20, 2017.
