Firestorm in Helsinki as Trump asks: “Where are the Servers?”

The Trump-Putin meeting was by most standards a disappointing news conference. Reminding some of Marlon Brando’s iconic line in the Godfather; “Never tell anyone outside the family what you’re thinking again.”

The line uttered by Brando in the 1972 blockbuster film was to remind his eldest son to never speak disparagingly about the family in front of strangers.

This is a lesson that President Trump learned the hard way after even the staunchest supporters criticized his performance.

This no doubt speaks of the wider issue of “Russian Collusion” (a term conjured up by the mainstream media as a distraction against Trump’s historic victory over Hillary Clinton and used by the Mueller probe to purposely cause uncertainty regarding the legitimacy of his presidency).

Helsinki naturally became another flashpoint for the president to opine once again about the Mueller “witch hunt,” created by the Obama Administration — which has become a constant source of irritation for this president.

When confronted by a reporter from the AP asking yet again about election meddling, the president fired back – rather than simply using the Obama tactic of artfully deflecting the question by using sweeping generalizations and moving on.

In fact, Trump publicly thumped our U.S. intelligence’s claim of Russian meddling by asking a direct and reasonable question from the podium: “Where are the servers?”

Adding, “My people tell me it was Russia that hacked the DNC, and Putin has told me it wasn’t. I think all of this back-and-forth will go on for awhile. I still want to know what was on those DNC servers. But I have great confidence in my intelligence people.”

The question of what happened to those DNC servers and why the FBI has not confiscated them is still a mystery. Surely having those servers would have eliminated any confusion regarding Russian meddling.

One can only speculate that there is other information on those servers (a lot more nefarious than Russians hacking into their database) that the DNC would like to remain secret.

Despite the near-universal condemnation coming from both conservatives and progressives regarding the Helsinki summit, the president still enjoyed some support.  One unlikely defender was Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who expressed his approval of the president’s handling of Putin.

“It’s gotten so ridiculous that someone has to stand up and say we should try to engage even our adversaries and open up our lines of communication.”

Adding; “We’re going to talk to the president about some small steps in order to try to thaw the relations between our countries,” the senator added, noting that he’s set to travel to Russia early next month to continue the dialogue Trump started.

When it came to Trump’s remarks following the one-on-one meeting, Rand broke ranks with most Republicans and criticized those slamming the president, tweeting out:

“Republicans that are making the criticism are either the pro-war Republicans like McCain and Graham or the anti-Trump ones like Sasse … They are motivated by their persistent and consistent dislike of the President.”

  1. You nitwits don’t know that the Feds Disk Imaged the servers immediately. So all this “where are the servers?’ questions are conservative smoke blowing. what know nothings you people are.

  2. What was a disgrace was that he constantly picks dictators over Americans. He picked Chinese phone maker ZTE, a spy phone maker that steals American tech, because of Chinese jobs. Now he’s picked a KGB spy over the entire U.S. intelligence agencies

    Finally, everyone associated with the Mueller probe is Republican. Mueller is R, Rosenstein is R, Wray is R.

    What was wrong with Helsinki was classic Trump. When asked about Russia, he deflected and talked about Clinton. The FBI seized the servers and went over them with a fine-toothed comb. I’m sure if Trump had the servers, he wouldn’t be able to find anything that the FBI didn’t see.
