Apparently, Trump has different perspective over Russia than his team. If he was under constant watch by the whole world, now, his team begin to have second thoughts about it.
As Trump declared at his last press conference he is more than supportive in expressing each personal idea as long as it is checked and real. He tweeted that “All of my Cabinet nominee are looking good and doing a great job. I want them to be themselves and express their own thoughts, not mine!”
This is happening after some of his men were questioned about Trump’s relations with Russia and what were his interests. Of course, in the middle of this situation is the hacking that supposedly change the results of US elections. Trump declared that “I think it was Russia”, but he downplayed its significance.
“The “Intelligence” briefing on so-called “Russian hacking” was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!” Trump add.
Paul Ryan is one of the persons that had a different opinion regarding Russia and Vladimir Putin. He said that US should adopt a “stronger Russia engagement policy, for sure, across the board. The fact that a foreign government tried to meddle in another government’s election is wrong.”
He also said that Russia doesn’t share the same interests as US.
“Vladimir Putin does not share our interests,” Ryan said. “He frustrates our interests. He violates his neighbors. … He’s not democratic. I really think a lot of the things that he is doing is to try to delegitimize the other democracies so that his illegitimate democracy doesn’t look as illegitimate by comparison.”
Also, Rex Tillerson declared that he didn’t receive any classified information regarding Trump’s relations with Russia or any information the elections, but he was on the same page with everyone regarding Putin declaring that it’s a “fair assumption” and Vladimir Putin could be the responsible for the attacks.
Even if Trump finally said, somehow, that Russia might hacked US, he is very faithful that all this is a misunderstanding. Also, he posted that “intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to ‘leak’ into the public. One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?”
Nevertheless, for some is very clear how the things happened and they are not so optimistic in the final conclusions. Pompeo told the Senate Select Committee that “With respect to this report in particular, it’s pretty clear about what took place here, about Russian involvement in efforts to hack information and to have an impact on American democracy,” he said in response to questioning. “This was an aggressive action taken by senior leadership inside of Russia.”
