Trump and Republicans Aiding Russia In 2018 Election Meddling

Why is America letting Russia get away with meddling in our democracy?

  The most remarkable thing about Russia’s meddling in our democracy is that resident trump has done nothing about it. There are plenty of steps that he could have taken. There are people, including some working just steps away from the Oval Office who could have—and may have—advised him what to do. But trump chose inaction.

   trump and the republican party know that without the help of Russian trolls and bots, that their asses will get kicked on election day.

   I will not get into the fact that Russia owns trump and probably at least a 1/3 of the republicans in Congress.

Gary Cohn Just Quit The White House

By ursulafaw     Tuesday Mar 06, 2018 Via Daily Kos

   Gary Cohn, President Trump's top economic adviser, is going to leave the administration in the coming weeks, The New York Times reports. The paper says "no single reason" is prompting Cohn to quit but the decision comes after the struggle inside the White House over tariffs over steel and aluminum imports.

Why it matters per Axios' Jonathan Swan: There’s now a grand total of zero people inside the West Wing with heft to take the anti-tariff fight to the president. Trump has cancelled a meeting with companies that use steel and aluminum that Cohn was arranging.
