Hot Air, by John Sexton

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 7/12/2017 10:46:00 PM

Before he was even a candidate, Donald Trump had dinner with Russian billionaire Aras Agalarov, his pop-star son Emin and Emin’s publicist Rob Goldstone. The meeting, which took place in Las Vegas in 2013, was videotaped and someone has now given that video to CNN: [snip] The video, obtained by CNN in the wake of the email disclosures, offers fresh insights into the warm relationship between Trump and the Agalarovs, which has been widely reported because Aras Agalarov and Emin Agalarov inked a multi-million dollar deal with Trump to bring the Miss Universe pageant to Moscow in 2013. The

Sorry if this sort of posting tries the patience of some, but the only way to get at the whole truth is to read both sides, so I zigzag. And this is a zag.

The Miss Universe contest was held in Moscow in 2013. All of this - including Trump Jr’s meeting Rob Goldstone - was in conjunction with that contest. Emil whatshisname may be the son of an oligarch, but his connection with the MU contest was as an entertainer, and I believe Goldstone represented him.

Right - this is just a small piece. People here have been in denial about Trump´s close relationship with Russia and their mutual admiration society, including people close to the government. Everyone has said disingenously, "But why would Putin/Russia want Trump? They obviously wanted Hillary to win." But that´s not the case; they wanted Trump. There is plenty of evidence that Russia loves Trump and vice versa but people will only read what they want to believe.

There is a lot of denial going around. Don Jr. denied at first the real reason for the meeting with Veselnitskaya; he said it was about adoption. Likewise, there is rampant denial about the fact that Russia wanted Trump--not Hillary.

I am not saying the administration did anything illegal or that Russia influenced the election. I´m just saying (see above).

In 1993 I worked with Russian and Polish nuclear physicists.

I guess I had better turn myself in as a Russian spy.

The project was to develop a device that could measure the amount of lead in paint on the walls of housing in the inner cities of the USA.

#14 – I’m not aware of anyone being in denial about Trump’s business relationships in Russia or his international popularity. You begin by equating business relationships and celebrity status (mutual admiration society) “including people close to the government” with government action itself. Mr. Trump’s peers, in any country, are going to be people who have connections to their own government. I believe it is you who are being disingenuous when you leap to the conclusion that positive feelings towards Trump by the Russian people automatically means Putin wanted Trump to win. Based upon what information do you know Putin wanted Trump to win?

You cavalierly dismiss the ample evidence of Clinton’s longstanding collusion with the Russian government and Putin “influenced” corporations and banks. Clinton would also assuredly continue to turn a blind eye to the Ukraine, Crimea, and using natural gas deliveries as blackmail against Western Europe. Then you stated, “There is plenty of evidence that Russia loves Trump and vice versa…” However popular Trump may be with the Russian people does not equate to Putin preferring The Donald, nor offers any evidence that the Russian government was involved in his favor. And yet you accuse others of reading only what they want to believe.

It appears you could give a seminar course on denial. “I am not saying the administration did anything illegal or that Russia influenced the election,” but indeed that is what you are saying as well as trying to shame others who point out your duplicity. There is no evidence of Putin’s government doing anything out of the ordinary international election meddling. Pointing out there’s no evidence is not the same as mindlessly denying something happened. Perhaps you should stop binge watching every episode of “The Smug and the Clueless.”

Kind of funny that the article right below this article states that the DOJ gave permission to let the Russian lawyer into the United States.

I firmly believe that the Trump family denied to themselves how vicious the Democrats and liberals could be. They met (like any other wealthy family) with people they had interests with and didn´t give it a thought. Unfortunately, I don´t think the Obama administration, the Clintons, even the Bushes are as innocent as they appear. None of them like Donald Trump for obvious reasons.

Poster, I am well aware of the antics that Democrats and liberals are playing. I add to it the people who do not like Trump. These very people are drooling all over themselves that they found the very thing that will sink Donald Trump. It is disgusting.

President Donald Trump’s administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, believes the EPA has room to be resized in terms of budget, staffing and authorities.

WASHINGTON - The White House said on Sunday that U.S. President Donald Trump was open to signing legislation toughening sanctions on Russia after Senate and House leaders reached agreement on a bill late last week. Congressional Democrats said on Saturday they had agreed with Republicans on a deal allowing new sanctions targeting Russia, Iran and North Korea in a bill that would limit any potential effort by Trump to try to lift sanctions against Moscow.

The Trump administration is readying for a crackdown on marijuana users under Attorney General Jeff Sessions. President Trump’s Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety, led by Sessions, is expected to release a report next week that criminal justice reform advocates fear will link marijuana to violent crime and recommend tougher sentences for those caught growing, selling and smoking the plant. Sessions sent a memo in April updating the U.S. Attorney’s Offices and Department of Justice Department (DOJ) component heads on the work of the task force, which he said would be accomplished through various subcommittees.

For weeks, observers were wondering when President Donald Trump would focus on pushing recalcitrant Republicans to back a Senate bill to repeal and possibly replace Obamacare — so that Trump and GOP lawmakers could keep faith with a key campaign pledge dear to the GOP base. Wednesday, Trump seized his bully pulpit. He invited all 52 Republican senators to the White House for a lunch at which he called out Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., in a way that left no doubt among other GOP Hamlets that if they voted against Trumpcare, it could cost them their jobs. More than that,

Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

President Trump responded to the Senate Republican´s inability to pass a skinny version of Obamacare´s repeal the only way he knows how: Twitter. (Tweet) Senate Republicans weren´t able to muster enough votes to pass their skinny repeal of Obamacare. Senators voted 49-51 shortly before 2:00 a.m. Friday morning. Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) cast a surprise "no" vote. He was joined by GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Susan Collins (Maine). The bill, titled the Health Care Freedom Act, would have repealed the individual insurance mandate. It would also have repealed the employer mandate for eight years.

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track.
