Bearing Witness to Trump Week 20

Week of June 4 – 10, 2017

Fatigue has set in. Every week there are more accusations, more denials, more lies, more dysfunction in the White House and across the Executive Branch that is poisoning the rest of the government and country.

Former FBI Director Comey testifies that Trump demanded his loyalty, asked him to let the Russian – Flynn investigation go, asked that he tell others that he Trump was not under investigation, then fired him when he did not comply. How can this possibly not be obstruction of justice?

When intelligence officials and appointees who currently work for Trump were asked about the Russian influence, they refused. I wonder why?

The White House is turning on itself as Trump refuses to say whether he supports how own AG Jeff Sessions, who is rumored to be on the next out list. There is talk that the President might even fire the special prosecutor, probably because Sessions would not after recusing himself.

It comes out over the weekend that the U.S. military is now involved with advising the Philippine government in handling of their home-grown terrorists. Add another country to our long list of where are armed services are active. Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and more. No wonder the Pentagon is offering up to $90K as a bonus for re-enlistment; all necessary for an empire that is always fighting around the world.

The above news items have been taken from a number of international, national, regional, and local news media sources, both print and digital. Additional editorial opinions and comments about these news items are those of this author.
