President Trump congratulated Putin on his recent election.
John McCain spoke out condemning this horrific congratulatory message.
The reporting in The Washington Post
, indicates that Trump was specifically warned by White House staff NOT t
o congratulate Putin on his “win”. Trump’s briefing papers contained the phrase: “DO NOT CONGRATULATE”. Any moron would realize that this was not a real election, and that people who voted for Putin were doing so as a result of coercion not “choice”.
Obviously, the leaking of this information is a story in itself.
To me there is a clear message. Trump must be beholden to Putin. Putin must have significant dirt on Trump. Otherwise why would Trump go out of his way to complement and congratulate Putin, and announce it to the world when Trump is under investigation by Robert Mueller?
Why would Putin mention anything about Russian prostitutes being the “best in the world” when asked about Trump if he didn’t want to make sure Trump knew he had dirt on Trump?
