Whether you believe that the Russian scandal is a “witch hunt” or the search for the truth, there is one reality that must be accepted by all. The Donald Trump administration has been emasculated by it. The first six months of the Trump presidency can be characterized by two issues: the Russian scandal and the inability for the Trump administration to deliver on its agenda.
Donald Trump’s inability to deliver the promised repeal of ObamaCare and any other major legislation is what Russian kompromat is all about. That is the most important thing to keep in mind as the Russian scandal continues to dominate the headlines.
The U.S. Congress is controlled by the Republicans. Donald Trump was elected on the Republican ticket. The Republicans have been attempting to repeal ObamaCare for at least seven years. Even with Trump, who has clearly asked for a bill repealing ObamaCare, the Affordable Healthcare Act remains the law of the land.
Russian kompromat is about controlling the U.S. government’s ability to govern itself. Control of other governments range from outright domination to hampering a government’s ability to govern.
Whatever you believe about the Russian intervention in the 2016 elections is immaterial, because from whatever standard you look at it, the Donald Trump administration has been emasculated and is unable to effectively govern.
That simple fact demonstrates how effective Russian kompromat has been in U.S. governance.
All U.S. citizens and those who care about the United States should be very concerned.
This week will further demonstrate whether Russian kompromat is still in control or not. Tax reform and the ongoing attempts to repeal ObamaCare will be very telling.
