Adam Schiff: Trump is compromised. What else is he hiding and who else knows about it?

Source: USA Today

Now we know Trump, like Flynn, was compromised by the Russians. Was the Moscow deal their only financial leverage over the president, or is there more?

Amidst the convictions of so many of the president’s associates, it is easy to forget that special counsel Robert Mueller is following a trail that began in 2016 not as a criminal probe, but as an FBI “counterintelligence” investigation.


<snip>

But the concern goes beyond Russia, and extends to broader questions of financial conflict of interest. Following the murder of U.S. resident and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi Arabia, Trump has sought to excuse Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The American people deserve to know that our president is acting in their interest and not his own financial self interest, or because he has been compromised by a foreign power. Now, with a new Democratic majority in the House, we should be able to find out.

How surreal is it that we have a Russian asset as POTUS? And we now know it's been that way for two years.

1. Yes, he is hiding behind George Bush's funeral to make people ignore what is really going on.

5. Trump is less a Russian asset..

And more of a universal mechanism of infection.

I liken him more at times to the hollow shell of a complex virus, a Trump Phage, which has punched a hollowed core deep into the white house and US (Para)politics, capable of injecting literally anything and everything foreign and toxic to the US' national security.

He is every bit as much of a Saudi, Israeli pathalogical invader as he is a Russian one, and that apparatus' void stands open to be filled with any international agent's corrupt DNA.

For a price.

14. Is there a vaccine to prevent future infection?

Because that virus looks really deadly.

16. Time will tell, won't it.

Democracy graveyards litter the pages of history all the way back to our Roman ancestors. Those before us have fallen, yet our Great Experiment persists still, and is yet to fall, even as we stumble today.

Nothing that survives this life goes untested. Even Rome fell. Time will tell if we share it's fate, but my confidence is high that it will not.

This time.

19. For starters we should ban his children from public office

... or from any kind of government service. That would also include in-laws of course.

I'd like to see some kind of nepotism ban instituted across the board, aimed at not just the Trump family. The idea of family dynasties has gone way too far in this country and it needs to end. The Trumps have certainly shown a good illustration of that.

But your question is concerning the Trump virus and we need to recognize that national media is not the answer. We the People must be the vaccine because the media journalists will only report on the "horse-race" and not the qualifications of the horses involved.

8. With all due respect to Mr. Schiff,

anyone who is just now figuring this out is a little slow on the uptake.

9. Hillary pointed it out during the debates.

And it's become more and more obvious every single day since then.

11. Some things can't be said publicly too soon.

It is major that enough is confirmed he can say it out loud. It's a process of unfolding truth. If it is said too soon, the impact is lost.

I for one, am comforted it is now politically safe to say it.

12. Because they want to do this too. Evangelicals, fux newsboys, used-car salesmen.

All that pompous veneer of "congress critter" or "pastor" or "news anchor" is just a sheepskin over their rapacious interior. Whether to steal from the young innocents or from the taxpayers or the sheeple in the congregation.

13. "..it's been that way for two years."

I think it's safe to say that it's been that way for decades. Russians have been grooming and subverting Trumpsky since the eighties. I think it's also safe to say that most national Republicans knew it all along. There's money in knowing stuff like that.

17. 10,000 DOLLAR QUESTION....for an immoral, narcissistic crime family operating for years on

the fringes of legality everyone they did shady business with or anyone who merely knows someone who did dirty deals with this group has the Trump family compromised.

Trump foundation illegality, money laundering, election tampering, bribes, prostitution, campaign contribution fraud, obstruction...all of it. Anyone who knows about any of these has power over Trump.

In fact...probably easier to ask who DOESN'T have dirt on the Trump family!
