While congressional leaders continue to argue over the necessity of seeing the un-redacted Mueller report, Russia has sent us a stark reminder of why transparency is of the ultimate importance.
It is foolish to deny that the Russian government attempted to infiltrate the American electoral system back in 2016, (and subsequently in 2018 as well). This is an inarguable conclusion that we as a nation have come to.
Sure, President Trump has downplayed the severity of the situation in public, but, as the President, his outward show of strength in the face of Putin’s meddling may be a little more important than exposing these stark realities on the world’s stage.
Now, while the left continues to push the wildly irresponsible narrative that Donald Trump is some sort of Kremlin double agent, Putin himself has sent a message to the American people that should not be ignored.
US F-22 stealth jets intercepted four Russian bombers and two Russian Su-35 fighter jets off the coast of Alaska on Monday, according to a statement from North American Aerospace Defense Command.
The Russian nuclear capable long-range bombers flew into the Air Defense Identification Zone, which extends approximately 200 miles off Alaska’s western coast.The Russian bomber flights are seen by US military officials as part of Moscow’s effort to train its military for a potential crisis while simultaneously sending a message of strength to adversaries.This latest intercept comes amid tensions with Russia on a wide range of geopolitical issues and a week after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Russian Vladimir Putin in the resort town of Sochi where he warned Russia about interfering in US elections, taking a tougher public line than President Donald Trump on the issue.
