While some have praised President Trump for making it through one day without a huge controversy or temper tantrum on Twitter, it’s important to remember that the questions swirling around the White House about Russia continue to escalate.
American Bridge Vice President Shripal Shah said, “You don’t get a victory lap for one mediocre day. You’re still likely compromised by a hostile foreign power. Start answering some questions.”
He calls on White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer to address the following questions about the ongoing Russia scandal at today’s press briefing:
1. Has President Trump been briefed about the possibility that Russian military pension funds have been funneled to hackers who interfered in the 2016 election?
2. Over the weekend, President Trump’s sons opened the Trump International Golf Club in Dubai. Can you say with certainty that the project did not take money from Russian investors?
3. What else did Trump aides Michael Cohen and Felix Sater discuss with the Ukrainian leader in their meeting that produced a secret peace plan?
4. Has anyone in the White House other than former-NSA Michael Flynn seen the contents of the peace plan written by Michael Cohen, Felix Sater, and a Ukrainian official? Will the White House turn over the plan to federal investigators?
5. Does the White House still have no comment on the presence of a Russian spy ship off the coast of Connecticut, Russian fighter jets flying at close proximity to a US warship in the Black Sea, and reports that Moscow may have tested a new cruise missile in violation of a 1987 arms treaty?
