No matter what the Trump administration is doing, it seems to be unable to escape the Russian mess.
First, former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn resigned because he met with the Russian ambassador before the inauguration.
Second, we learned that Trump’s son in-law Jared Kushner also was at the meeting with Flynn, raising an entire new set of questions.
Now, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has come under scrutiny after alleged contacts with the Russian ambassador during the 2016 presidential campaign. Sessions denied any conversations with the Russians during his confirmation hearing. Calls are mounting for him to resign.
White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters that “The big point here is the president himself knows what his involvement was and that’s zero.”
The big point is that the buck stops with the president, and any mess around him is going to leave a stain on him. If the president is not involved with the Russian talks directly, he should get to the bottom of it and put the issue to rest instead of firing accusations against previous administrations without evidence to distract from the issue at hand. Otherwise, it is going to follow him and bog him down.
Like him or not, we want him to succeed so our country can succeed, but it is difficult to win without facing the challenges head on. Click here for more on the Russian connections..
