It’s pretty sad that things have gotten to the point where we now expect idiotic tweets from the President of The United States on a weekly, if not daily basis — but low and behold, it’s where we are. And more often than not, those idiotic tweets serve as nothing more than a diversion meant to distract everyone away from something much bigger.
Well, this week certainly hasn’t disappointed in that regard, as Trump made an incredibly unwise decision when he announced the withdrawal from the Iran peace deal. The instant Trump announced this, it should have been pretty obvious he was trying to change the narrative before something much bigger and uglier was going to surface. And now that it has, it’s perhaps bigger and uglier than anyone could have imagined, Trump included.
Shortly after Trump made this announcement, Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti just so happened to publish evidence that everyone from a Kremlin oligarch to AT&T has been providing money to Donald Trump’s attorney, Micheal Cohen. No wonder Trump, Rudy Giuliani, and Cohen conveniently couldn’t keep their stories straight regarding the $130,000 reimbursement. Nevertheless, to make matters worse, AT&T also admitted it had paid the “consulting” fee to Cohen in hope of gaining influence over Trump. Yikes.
At first, it wasn’t clear how Donald Trump was privy to this news before it was dropped. Typically, media outlets often provide him a heads-up in advance of any bombshell stories when they reach out to his White House to see if he would like to offer an comments for the story. Interestingly enough, though, this week’s heads-up reportedly came directly from Avenatti and his sources.
However, while all of that was unfolding and slowly being pieced together, it appears as if Trump had something even bigger to distract everyone from, too. According to a bipartisan report published by the Senate Intelligence Committee later that evening, it was confirmed that Russian hackers did in fact gain access to the voter registration databases in multiple states, and were in position to rig votes by altering or deleting voter registration records.
If Trump was aware of this report before it was published, then it’s no wonder why he wanted everyone to focus on the Iran Peace Deal. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.
