The Trump Administration Is Awash In Treason And Fox News Is Defending It

You can almost hear the feckless cowards in the right-wing media sphere getting their talking points in order after that bastion of “liberal bias,” The Wall Street Journal reported that former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn was colluding with Russian hackers during the 2016 campaign. Brit Hume was the first one at Fox News to prepare their compliant sheep audience for the inevitable revelation that Trump’s campaign did, in point of actual fact, work with a hostile government in order to usurp our democratic government. Hume began the shameless narrative that even if Flynn did collude with Russian hackers, there’s nothing wrong with it. Make no mistake here, if Flynn was colluding with Russian hackers, what they will attempt to excuse is treason.

trea·sonˈtrēzən/

The crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.

Patriots will rightly call Flynn’s apparent collusion with hostile enemies of the United States what it actually is, treason. Hume’s next feat of preliminary hogwash — which was quickly reiterated by the White House — was that even if Flynn did collude with Russian agents, he did it on his own like a lone wolf-type operation. If that sounds reasonable to you then you are probably a Republican with a face full of sand.

Republican apologists have been crying, “where’s the evidence of collusion? It’s all smoke and mirrors.” Congressional Republicans like Chuck Grassley have been moving at a glacial pace when it comes to holding hearings, issuing subpoenas and doing their due diligence to oversee the executive branch. Trey Gowdy, who heretofore never saw a conspiracy he didn’t like and want to investigate when it came to Hillary Clinton, but when the tides turn, he’s loath to do anything to investigate Trump. What changed yesterday is that it is no longer smoke, there is fire as New York Magazine reported:

This is also not the first evidence of collusion between Russia and other Republican officials in the 2016 campaign. A relatively little-noticed Journal report from May found that Aaron Nevins, a Florida Republican operative, sought and received stolen Democratic voter-turnout files from Guccifer 2.0, a hacker believed by U.S. intelligence to be working for Russia. What’s new is that explicit evidence of collusion may now extend to the Trump campaign itself.

“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”

– Arthur Schopenhauer

Donald John Trump is a very simple-minded ignoramus whose entire life is an illusion of what a poor man thinks is a rich man. When he asked James Comey to “let the Russia thing go” because Mike Flynn was a “good guy,” he not only obstructed justice, he revealed that Mike Flynn was very close to him. While Flynn was chanting ‘Lock her up’ at the Republican National Convention, Trump was cheering him on. President Obama even warned Trump not to hire Flynn but of course like a petulant man-child who only wants to erase Obama’s legacy, he ignored sage advice.
 
Trump’s motivation for firing James Comey was to stop the FBI’s Russia investigation, he admitted it on national television to Lester Holt. He bragged about it to his Russian chums when he invited them to the White House. This isn’t a man playing a complicated game of international chess, this is a moron playing paddleball.
Republicans have tied and allied themselves to Trump. Both their future and their fate is interlocked with his, so naturally, they are going to say and do everything in their power to protect their base from the evidence that Trump, Kushner, Flynn, and Manafort conspired with a hostile foreign government to win the 2016 election. They must become enablers and apologists for treason. Both Flynn and Manafort retroactively registered as foreign agents with the State Department. Manafort was paid millions to represent the kleptocratic Pro-Putin factions in Ukraine.
General Mike Flynn certainly has a story to tell but if there’s any such thing as justice in this country, he’ll be singing from Ft. Leavenworth with a 20-year sentence hanging around his neck like an albatross.
