So heres where we are now.
On Friday President Trump abruptly fired his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, forcing him to cut short a trip to Africa.
Although Tillerson and Trump publicly disagreed on many things, I found this particularly interesting:
On the flight from Nigeria, Tillerson appeared to break with the White House in his assessment of the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain. He singled out Russia as responsible for the attack, echoing the finger-pointing of the British government.
It came from Russia, Tillerson said, according to the Associated Press. I cannot understand why anyone would take such an action. But this is a substance that is known to us and does not exist widely.
Earlier Monday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders condemned the attack as reckless, indiscriminate and irresponsible, and expressed solidarity with Britain, but would not say whether the United States believes Russia was behind it.
And Trump, who routinely tweets insults and unsubstantiated charges against his domestic political opponents, maintains his silence on the near-certain involvement of the Putin regime in poisoning Sergei Skripal and his daughter.
I really dont want to believe that Putin has something on Trump, but cmon
Update: Theres a dispute over the timing of Tillersons firing: the White House says he was notified on Friday but Tillersons now-fired spokesman said the now-former secretary of state only learned about it on Tuesday.
Further update: Trumps statement Tuesday on the Skripal poisoning is downright Corbynian. (Notice the absence of outrage.):
US President Donald Trump suggested on Tuesday that he believes the British governments theory that Russia was likely responsible for the nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy and his daughter in England earlier this month.
It sounds to me like it would be Russia based on all the evidence they have, Trump told reporters outside the White House. It sounds to me like they believe it was Russia and I would certainly take that finding as fact.
Trump added: As soon as we get the facts straight, if we agree with them, we will condemn Russia or whoever it may be.
There is one clear reason Trump fired Tillerson
Because Tillerson deserved it
After another anonymous poster stated that he was happy Cohen left, Q posted that more was coming!
An article from “Harry’s Place” is deemed worthy of being posted in the News/ Activism section of FR....Seriously????
Hey Mr. President while your at it how about firing Sessions? Its long overdue.
Sadly, I’m down with that.
Trump should also fire Rod Rosenstein and Mueller.
Trump shouldn’t have to put up with a special prosecutor hounding his staff for another seven years.
There was no Russian collusion, and that’s what Mueller’s initial focus was.
Kick his ass to the curb.
yeah was wondering if I should have put it in Blogs instead?
