Trump's the Name — “Divert, Deflect, and Deviate” My 3-D Game

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) accuses President Donald J. Trump (Sunday, April 2, 2017) of trying to divert Congress from investigations of Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. election and any links between Moscow and the Trump campaign.

Schiff said the president and his aides have instead attempted to throw the focus on the possibility of illegal leaks of classified information, and whether Trump or his associates were caught up in incidental collection by surveillance that was targeting foreigners (confirmed legal wire taps at Trump Tower tracking Russian mafia, etc.).

Two Congressional committees: the House which is now is on shaky ground and in disarray thanks to Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and his double talking about giving document information directly to Mr. Trump, and the Senate, which just got started, along with the FBI, are all investigating what U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded were attempts by Russia to influence the November 8 presidential election in Trump's favor. Plus, they also are looking at any links between Russia and Trump on other matter (e.g., financial, hacking, and etc.).

Related posts, same subject are here, here, here, here, here, and here.

My View: Trump or anyone else who tries to change the subject and divert attention from the critical elements of the story and the investigations as Trump and many of his team members are doing almost on a daily basis leaves one to conclude they have in fact a lot to hide. So watch and listen to them closely over the next few weeks as the pressure mounts like it has for Michael Flynn, who now seeks immunity to “Tell his important story.”

Okay, Mr. Flynn and others who happen to support him: We can hardly wait.

Stay tuned.
