Donald Trump played host to his Russian Paymasters today. No big deal. Except for the fact that Don Cheetolini ushered the visitors, the Russian media, their cameras and microphones into the Oval Office.
A tweet thread by former Deputy Director of the CIA David S. Cohen reveals the former intelligence official’s thoughts on news that Russian ambassadors met in the Oval Office with President Donald Trump.
The first tweet was written by former national security advisor Colin Kahl, which begged the “deadly serious” question of whether it was “a good idea to let a Russian gov photographer & all their equipment into the Oval Office?”
Former Dep. Director Cohen responded, on Twitter: “no, it was not.”
In subsequent tweets, Kahl went on to say that when he worked for Barack Obama’s administration, he “couldn’t let foreign delegations bring phones/cameras” into his own office in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, and that he had to leave his own phone and camera outside the Oval Office when he worked there.
“Apparently,” Kahl wrote, “that doesn’t apply to Russ Gov in this WH”.
So why in Stalin’s name would Trump let the Russian Bear probe the American honey tree in such a brazen fashion?
According to a recent POLITICO article about President Donald Trump’s strange meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russia’s U.S. Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, Trump held the meeting in the Oval Office at the behest of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“He chose to receive him because Putin asked him to,” an anonymous White House source told POLITICO. “Putin did specifically ask on the call when they last talked.”
