Wants truth about Russian interference

Misdirection: that is the magician’s stock in trade. Look at the wand or the pretty assistant or the wrong hand while the magician executes the trick.

Trump is using misdirection to divert attention from his Russian connections. And Trump is a master at manipulating the media.

As he sends Tomahawk missiles onto a forewarned airport in Syria, lies about the Navy ships headed to Korean waters or blusters about his 100-day report card, the focus shifts off of the Russia issue.

The newest “shiny objects” are hastily thrown together plans for taxes and more healthcare gutting.

Don’t be distracted. Resist. We need to find out what was done to cheat in the election.

Cover up: That is what brought down Nixon, who tried to use his position to prevent an investigation into Watergate.

Trump has his own Russiagate, and the White House/ Republicans are obstructing investigations.

Again, don’t be distracted. Insist on an independent investigation by a special prosecutor or 9/11-style panel. We need to know the truth about who helped the Russians, and then we need to lock them up.
