Sadly, there are only a few more days left in Obama’s White House. But this doesn’t mean Team Obama is going to roll over without giving Trump a fight.
Obama’s press secretary Josh Earnest just came out swinging on America’s Usurper-in-Chief. He said in no uncertain terms that Trump and Trump alone has benefited from Russian hacks during the election.
This means the White House is fully backing the assessment of the American intelligence community that Putin tipped the scales in Trump’s favor. Tragically, this horrifying reality is as plain as day now.
“You didn’t need a security clearance to figure out who benefited from malicious Russian cyber activity,” Earnest said. The Russians were so brazen in their service to Trump that they didn’t even bother hiding their tracks.
Earnest pointed to all the relationships between Trump’s team and Putin’s cronies as evidence that the two parties colluded to steal the election. Looks like the deal was Putin to get Trump elected in exchange for Trump ending economic sanctions against Russia.
By pointing out that Trump called for Russia to hack Hillary Clinton and saying that Trump “certainly had an idea” about the attacks being against Hillary, it seems as though Earnest is insinuating that Trump knew. If knowing about these attacks, calling for them, and then using them to usurp power isn’t treasonous then I don’t know what is.
Democracy isn’t a game, and deals should never be made for the presidency, much less with America’s number one geopolitical enemy. But it’s clear now that Trump and Putin made this exact deal, and American democracy has been threatened forever because of it.
“It’s all information that is, as far as I can tell, undisputed,” Earnest said. “One conclusion it does lead me to is the special responsibility that members of Congress have to take a close look at this.”
We completely agree with Team Obama. It’s time for our members of Congress to protect us from Putin’s act of war by investigating Trump’s ties to Russia in full.
Please share this story far and wide on Facebook. If we raise our voices up loud enough, the American people can let Trump and Putin know that we’re not going to stand idly by while they pull the wool over our eyes.
