Trump Fans Love to Say of Trump, “…but he FIGHTS!”, but When is Trump Going to Fight Against Russia’s Cyber-Warfare Against Us?Posted: February 17, 2018
On February 16, 2018 Senator Ben Sasse (R, Nebraska) released the following:
“Mueller just put Moscow on notice. This ought to be a wakeup call to Washington: Putin’s shadow war is aimed at undermining Americans’ trust in our institutions. We know Russia is coming back in 2018 and 2020 – we have to take this threat seriously.”
Senator Sasse is right. What is needed right now to fight Russia’s attacks against us is presidential leadership, but President Trump is still AWOL and he still hasn’t implemented sanctions against Russia that Congress overwhelmingly passed last August.
Today (February 17, 2018) Trump’s National Security Adviser, General H.R. McMaster, said that evidence of Russian cyber-warfare against us is “incontrovertible“.
A lot of Trump followers like to say of Trump, “…but he FIGHTS!”
When is Trump going to wake up and get in this fight?
McCarthy is a prolific writer on legal and national security matters who recently tweeted suggesting that President Trump may be a national security risk because of his reported extramarital affair with porn actress Stormy Daniels.
If true, this latest report adds to McCarthy’s existing concern that Donald Trump is compromised and is at risk of being blackmailed, manipulated, or worse.
Last November, intelligence reporter Howard Blum reported that American intelligence personnel met with their Israeli counterparts and warned them that Russian strongman Vladimir Putin has “leverages of pressure” over Trump.
Blum reported the American intelligence personnel warned their Israeli counterparts to be careful what secrets they share because they feared Trump would compromise them.
I join Andrew C. McCarthy in being concerned that President Trump has opened himself up to blackmail, so it’s eminently reasonable to ask:
is President Trump himself a national security risk?
