Trump and the Russians!
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 27 - 02 - 2017

TO many observers of the American affairs, the resignation of US national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, following the revelation of his connection with Russian officials, did not come as a big surprise, rather it was a confirmation of the theory of Russia's penetration into the administration of President Donald Trump.
This also confirms the stories that were intensively circulating during the days of the presidential campaign pointing out "close relationship" between influential leaders in the Donald Trump's inner circle and important officials in the Russian government. Apart from this, statements repeatedly made by Donald Trump himself during his presidential campaign, also heaped praises for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The issue is of serious concern in the US, especially with the media heavyweights of the likes of the New York Times, which normally represents opinions of the State Department and the Washington Post, which reflects the opinions of the Ministry of Defense, both have adopted a strong line of inquiry with Donald Trump accusing him of his suspicious links with the Russian officials.
It is no secret that the veteran Vladimir Putin still feels the intense pain of bitterness suffered by the Soviets during their humiliating defeat in Afghanistan at the hands of the Americans. Also there is a strong conviction about America's involvement in breaking up of the former Soviet Union during the reign of former President Mikhail Gorbachev.
Today, (according to Putin), America continues to threaten the security of Russia by its interference in Georgia and Ukraine — two traditionally former Russian states — and by planting missiles in eastern Europe, an issue which Russia considers as a direct threat to its national strategic security. And there the signs of revenge gradually began to surface and the image of Trump, as if a Russian candidate, began to appear with increasing talk about the special relationship between Putin and Trump and the latter's continuous refusal to criticize President Putin or oppose his controversial and dubious human rights record.
Today there are very serious calls by the influential members in both the Democratic and Republican members of the Congress in the United States for extensive investigations into alleged breaches of Russian government in the decision-making policies in the White House and being a great threat to the US national security.
This important issue came to light after allegations from the Democratic Party and its presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's claims that the Russian intelligence services had managed to infiltrate in the functioning of the Democratic Party and learned the secrets of the private correspondence between its members. Not only this, Democrats also alleged that and also Russians hacked into the automatic electronic devices of the voting system during the US presidential election, which favored the Republican candidate Donald Trump.
The fourth estate, a term given to the media system in the West, now functions in the "investigations and detection" for deciphering the mysteries of the relationship between President Donald Trump and the Russians. They believe that they will be able to know the "full truth," just as they did in the investigation of the Watergate scandal during the era of former President Richard Nixon, which was exposed by a reporter from the Washington Post.
America today is divided between those who say that the country has been kidnapped a constitutional coup at the hands of the extremists and those who claim that it has been restored to its owners and is being protected. While others are of the opinion that what is happening today is not presumed innocent and the mysterious and dubious relationship between President Trump and Russia must be revealed.
Excitement and suspense is going on in an unprecedented way, more than a month after the takeover of the US presidency by Donald Trump.
It seems very exciting days are yet to come!
