So this story being reported by CNN about a computer link between servers owned by a Russian bank and the trump organization could be somewhat of a big deal. If you are riding with the under and not the over as to when trump will be impeached, you might be in a better position these days.
There sure seems to be a lot of smoke here, and the GOP is doing their best to cover for their leader. But at some point the heat might get too hot for even them to stick around. Let's face it folks, this Russia stuff is not going away anytime soon.
Most people (your friendly Field Negro included) believe that trump's tax returns could hold the key to what's going on here. Most people are still trying to figure out why he refuses to release them. None of us actually believe that he is not being allowed to release them because of an audit.
If this is in fact true, why won't he release the letter the IRS sent him advising him of the audit? It's a rhetorical question. I know why. He is the charlatan in chief.
But he is not the only charlatan in his circle. Time and time again his people have told us that they had no meetings or connections with the Russians. And yet, we are learning now, that this is far from the truth, and that they lied about their connections and conversations with the Russians.
"The server in question came under scrutiny last summer after internet data from a computer server owned by the Moscow-based Alfa Bank searched for the contact information of a computer server owned by the Trump Organization.
Their internet searches exceeded other companies, with this Russian bank alone accounting for 80 percent of the Trump server look-ups, according to CNN, which reported that FBI investigators found the server connection "odd."
It's unclear how consequential it would be if such a connection were found. CNN reported that there are no specific allegations of wrongdoing.
The server issue was recently mentioned in a Breitbart article that inspired President Trump to claim on Twitter that his phone was tapped during the election by the Obama administration, according to a White House official cited by CNN. "[Source]
I need a stiff vodka to process all of this.
