There’s still a long way to go before we know everything that took place concerning Donald Trump’s campaign and their possible collusion with Russia during last year’s election. However, most signs point toward things getting much worse for the GOP and the current administration sooner rather than later.
Especially when you factor in Trump’s behavior. While I’m not an expert in the field of psychology or human behavior, you don’t need to be to recognize that innocent people with nothing to hide don’t behave how Trump has toward these allegations. He’s lashed out at U.S. intelligence officials for saying Russia was behind the cyber attack, called most reports concerning this story “FAKE NEWS!,” and pushed ridiculous conspiracies against President Obama.
Nearly everything about the way Trump’s acting toward all of this indicates he’s someone who’s scared and desperately trying to do everything he can to undermine anything factual coming out about this story.
For instance, a tweet he sent out early Sunday morning where he seemed to be implying that Democrats and the DNC might have been working with Russia:
When will the Fake Media ask about the Dems dealings with Russia & why the DNC wouldn't allow the FBI to check their server or investigate?
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 7, 2017
First, the media doesn’t determine who does or doesn’t get investigated. They can ask questions, sure, but that doesn’t have much to do with actual investigations into potential criminal behavior.
Not only that, but what “dealings” is he talking about? The soundly-debunked conspiracy about selling uranium to Russia or public meetings some Democrats had years ago with representatives of Putin? His administration is in charge of the White House. If there’s truly something worth investigating, why aren’t officials looking into it?
It’s comments like this which make me believe he truly can’t grasp the reality that he’s the “Commander-in-Chief.”
It’s seems apparent that, faced with former acting Attorney General Sally Yates set to testify to Congress, Trump’s trying to create a distraction by implying that Democrats may have been working with Russian officials. Especially considering most expect her to say that the Trump administration lied about what they knew about disgraced former national security advisor Michael Flynn and when they knew it.
While this is not the first time he’s brought up the DNC not allowing the FBI to look at their servers last year — an admittedly stupid move — I don’t believe the timing of this tweet Sunday, a day before Yates’ testimony, is a coincidence.
Furthermore, considering Russia wasn’t trying to help Democrats or Hillary Clinton, what he’s clearly trying to imply doesn’t make any sense.
There are many parts to this scandal that are extremely important. That being said, without a doubt, the most serious aspect centers around allegations that Trump’s campaign and Russian officials were coordinating with one another hoping to manipulate our election to help him defeat Hillary Clinton — which happened.
The Russians clearly weren’t trying to help Democrats, the DNC, or Clinton — so why would there need to be investigations into possible collusion? What would they have been “colluding” to do — help Trump?
Because that make sense.
Besides, it’s not Democrats, the DNC, or Clinton who’ve praised Vladimir Putin and defended Russia while attacking U.S. intelligence officials, or have a long list of people close to them who keep getting busted for questionable contact with people either directly or indirectly linked to the Russian government.
This is just more unhinged stupidity displayed by Donald Trump that seemingly does nothing more than make him look like a guilty person who’s terrified of people finding out the truth.
