We need to make this real easy—because Trumpeteers will be really confused. They have already committed treason by hitching their wagon to someone who had clearly been compromised. Ignorance is no excuse in eyes of the laws of being a patriotic American—especially in the era of the internet, when access to simple facts is universally available. Reading fake news is OK when it comes to enjoying alien sightings in the National Enquirer, but it is not acceptable when educating oneself about legal aliens, the fate of mankind and America’s national interests.
All US intelligence agencies had already figured out that Putin helped elected Donald Trump, and Putin undoubtedly has plenty of black material to keep Trump as his stooge. We know that the White House has been overwhelmingly overrun by hostile Soviet interests. So why would Trump fire Flynn? Well it is now obvious that Flynn was caught in a lie—a lie that the Russians could prove. Thus if Flynn retained his job—the fact that the Russians could blackmail him, could not possibly be denied. Trump was Trumped.
Hence Putin’s #1 patsy has to fire one of Putin’s many other patsies that lurk in the Trump family of influence. Once Trump and all his team and all his enablers are forced from office—only then will America’s national security efforts have any credibility. Once Trumpeteers begin to recognize they damage they have done to everyone’s safety, only then can America be saved from its fate—becoming a pariah, a pariah that will be attacked—and not many countries would really care that much.
Until then all America’s allies need to cease sharing really sensitive information with America, as such information will be destined to get into the wrong tiny little hands.
