If Donald Trump is having a bromance with Valerie Putin he sure has a funny way of showing it.
From Josh Lederman and Jill Lawless’s article for the Associated Press:
From Washington to Warsaw, Western nations banded together Monday to expel more than 100 Russian diplomats they accused of being spies, punishing Moscow for its alleged poisoning of an ex-intelligence officer in Britain.
President Donald Trump, under constant political heat for his reluctance to challenge Russia, ordered 60 of its diplomats out of the U.S. — all of them spies, the White House said. The United States called it the largest expulsion of Russian spies in American history, and also shuttered Russia’s consulate in Seattle, deeming it a counterintelligence threat.
Despite the article’s attempt to reinforce the premise that Trump has some kind of soft spot for Russia, the fact remains that he was fine with this expulsion…
…just as he has been fine with boosting our domestic oil production, which inherently hurts countries – Russia certainly among them – which rely heavily on oil sales for their revenue.
Just curious: what will Robert Mueller do now? Haul in the expelled Russians, make sure they have enough legal fees to bankrupt them (like Michael Flynn), and then demand they testify?
