Former Watergate Special Prosecutor: Russia Is Blackmailing Trump

He is saying something that is becoming increasingly clear. And everyday that passes we learn more:

[Nick] Akerman said on MSNBC, “This is a job that is being done for Putin. It really — ironically confirms everything that Christopher Steele said. The reason Christopher Steele went to the FBI in the first place was because he believed he was seeing a crime in action. That is a major political candidate for president who is under the thumb of the Soviets — or I shouldn’t say Soviet, but the Russians and was subject to blackmail. And that is what it looks like is happening.”

Not convinced. Then why does Trump defy the entire Congress (in violation of the law) by not enforcing sanctions on Russia?:

The U.S. State Department said on Monday a 2017 U.S. law was deterring billions of dollars in Russian defense sales, but it did not announce any sanctions under the measure designed to punish Russia for allegedly seeking to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

“Today, we have informed Congress that this legislation and its implementation are deterring Russian defense sales,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said. “Since the enactment of the … legislation, we estimate that foreign governments have abandoned planned or announced purchases of several billion dollars in Russian defense acquisitions.”

With the statement, President Donald Trump’s administration signaled it was not imposing new sanctions under a bill he reluctantly signed into law in August, just six months into his presidency.

Remember this shockingly un-American statement?:

[Bill] O’Reilly pressed Trump on his statement, saying, “But he’s a killer though. Putin’s a killer.”

“There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What, you think our country is so innocent?” Trump responded.
