The confrontation between Donald trump and American media to a new level. The US President intends to establish a headquarters to counter information leaks from the White house to the press. Ironically, about the plans of the American leader, reported by the Washington Post… with reference to his advisers. It is also important that the news came amid reports on the audit conducted by the FBI against the son-in-trump – Jared Kushner.
Recall Kushner, is the husband of Ivanka trump, daughter of the American President, also holds the post of his senior Advisor.
According to unnamed sources, NBC TV, yet we are not talking about the charges against him – the FBI just think that trump’s son-in-law may have important information for the Bureau of investigation about the connections of the President’s team USA with Russia.
You know, in particular, that in the past year, Kouchner met with the Russian Ambassador in Washington Sergei Kislyak. According to the information Agency Associated Press (AP) and The Washington Post – newly acquired from their own anonymous sources in the course of the conversation the son-in-law trump offered Russian diplomat to create a secret communication channel between the USA and Russia. As pointed out by the AP, such a measure was to establish contacts between Washington and Moscow on the Syrian issue, and American intelligence agencies could not intercept transmitted the information thus.
The white house has reacted to press reports. As recalled by the assistant Advisor to trump on national security Herbert McMaster, the United States has channels of communications with the various States, but they are used very carefully.
Of course, the message itself plans to create a channel for rapid communication (between the leading world powers!) does not seem so sensational – and the previously unheard of accusations against trump about disclosure Sergei Lavrov intelligence. However, given the role of the media in American society and the relationship of the press with the President of the United States, there is no doubt that the scandal around the “relations” of trump with Russia will settle down soon. And opponents in the White house – as they already proved – will use any “hook” to discredit him.
Moreover, as repeatedly noted in conversation with “MK”, in this case it is not so much about Russia as about the figure of the American President, who still has not became an insider in the political establishment, was not able to build working relationships with congressmen. It causes resentment not only among his opponents, the Democrats (which is natural), but in the environment of the party of the Republicans. Public opinion polls show a growing level of distrust on the part of citizens of the United States, are increasingly heard comparison with Nixon (the only us leader to voluntarily resign ahead of schedule – in connection with the Watergate scandal) and statements about the possibility of impeachment… this, of course, is “merit” and the trump, who has declared much of the media “fake” (as some called “enemies of the people”), and preferred promoting their solutions by the presidential decrees, without the help of Congress.
