What DO They Talk About?



Trump's latest call with Putin raises more questions than it answers

By Kevin Liptak, CNN
December 30, 2019

WEST PALM BEACH, Florida(CNN) When news arrived early Sunday that President Donald Trump had spoken to his Russian counterpart, it didn't come from the White House.

Instead, word came from Moscow, where the Kremlin issued a brief statement saying Vladimir Putin had initiated a call to thank Trump for information provided by the United States that helped foil a terrorist attack in St. Petersburg.

It would be more than 24 hours before the White House officially confirmed the conversation in its own statement. The 63-word American description of the call largely echoed the Russian version, with the addition that the men discussed arms control.

ďThe Presidents also discussed the state of relations between the United States and Russia,Ē the statement read.

1. I think Putin is concerned re the Impeachment, the 2020 election and numerous other

things trump is connected to. He wants assurances and I doubt the call had anything to do with what putin says it was. That whole thing is BS and trump is not talking about it. Putin may have issued a warning, many millions still owed to russia, who knows?

4. Absolutely. No way do the "official statements" reflect reality.

Strikes me how Trump continues to believe Putin over his (our) government.

Itís like Donnie is so hypnotized, he canít see that his words and actions cast him in a bad light.

(IN BORED ROBOT SING-SONG VOICE) ďIt was Ukraine, not Russia, that interfered in 2016.Ē

Whether or not he was programmed Manchurian Candidate style, Trumpís actions serve Russia. That makes Trump a Traitor.

PS: Happy New Year, monmouth4!

2. Is it really possible that no one was listening to the conversation?

Are the Intel agencies too paranoid to even get involved anymore??

3. The president can order government agencies to not record his activities.

Trump already routinely ignores the Presidential Records Act

6. "Putin told me."

That alone would get somebody placed on the watch list. The fact that the IMPOTUS uttered those words makes monitoring him a matter of national security.

During the transition, back when Flynn was still in and on the payroll, Jared asked Kislyak for a secure communication link to Moscow. After the swearing-in, Trump fired Comey and later just about everybody who had anything to do with investigating his connections to Putin. Then, he bragged about it ó thinking no one would see the pictures from the Oval Office. Totally innocent not.

As for whoís watching Diapers Donnie in person?, I bet itís someone who looks like his closest ally. Cough. Billy Barr. Cough. Even if they donít get all they want viz a viz Russia, the right continues to drag the nation toward authoritarianism.
