A Goodwill Message From Putin?
Wednesday May 10th, 2017, witnessed the visit of the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, and the Russian Ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak to the White House. They were in the Oval Office to speak with Donald Trump. Did they bring a message of goodwill from Russia and from President Putin?
Share The Message
Can President Trump share the message from Russia with the American people and with everyone else? Why is Trump constrained like a robot to obey Vladimir Putin's instruction to receive the Russian envoys? The discussion that went on between Trump and the Russians is unknown. Why was the Russian Media given access to the meeting which was denied to the American Press? Considering that there are several probes going on at the moment relating to the Trump/Russian campaign actions and activities during the 2016 presidential run, why is it pressing that Russians, Putin's closest allies, be received at the White House at this point? Is there anything that cannot wait? What is the deal? All Americans are entitled to know what went on behind closed doors. Furthermore, could not the Russian officials have been received by the Secretary of State, and at that level only?
The United States is watching and the world is watching. No maneuvering is going to make the Russian questions go away. Only a clean break from the fiction of "no there there" will bring a resolution.
