Lately it seems that everyone is having a laugh at President Donald Trump’s expense these days, and why not? He looks funny with that comical comb-over and if he uses anymore self-tanner he’ll be perfectly orange. Aside from his hilarious appearance, the way he has been performing as president of the united states is utterly laughable as well.
Apparently even his own son-in-law could hardly contain himself at a press conference that took place at the white house today. Jared Kushner was seen smiling after a reporter asked the President, “Did you at any time urge former FBI Director James Comey, in any way shape or form, to close or to back down the investigation into Michael Flynn?” To which the president interrupted with, “No. No. Next question.”
The termination of FBI Director James Comey has been widely regarded as a suspicious act. Perhaps in the hope that the FBI would halt their investigation into Mike Flynn.
The fact that President Trump disclosed classified information with the Russian foreign minister and the Russian ambassador earlier this week however is factual and is no laughing matter. The president defended his actions in a series of tweets by saying that the information disclosed was a matter of security for all countries.
However, the president did in fact share highly classified information to people who did not need to receive it. This in turn raises even more questions as to why the president chose to discuss these matters with a country that is suspected of hacking the 2016 Presidential Election, and has caused him so much scandal.
There are those who are seeking the answer to that question, they may soon have it.Robert Mueller has been appointed as special counsel this week to oversee the investigation into the possible ties between the President Trumps campaign and Russian influence.
Deputy Attorney General, Rod J. Rosenstein made the decision after a barrage of developments from the President in recent days. Mr. Rosenstein said this in a statement:
‘It is in the public interest for me to exercise my authorities and appoint a special counsel to assume responsibility for this matter. My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted,’
Mr. Rosenstein added. “I have made no such determination.”
