Can of worms

Allegations that Trump & Company are being blackmailed by Russia create a can of worms for the Trump White House. That Russia is blackmailing Trump & Company are lines of investigation behind the scenes by the FBI and CIA into allegations. Smoke is evident everywhere while case details remain secret until the time is right to make charges.

Most likely, the audit trail into conflicts will come from Trump's IRS filings and other business records that are subject to due process. That is what takes time.

Congress could be active participants in the process. However, the Senate has punted to the House for parallel investigations. Being controlled by Republicans who are also conflicted by interests in the outcome, anticipate charges of obstruction and impediment by the Democrats. Constitutional protocols will be contested by charges of corruption, co-conspirators, and collision from which the entire mess will end up in the Court.

As for President Trump's executive orders and actions, much of that is scripted by the Republican Party Platform. The Republican platform presents the notion that Constitutional rights are under assault by the left. They use that as a cover to install ideological actions. However, that is largely noise in the system and takes citizens' eyes away from their having rights and services undermined.

I will prove this as the investigation unfolds.

The President also may be subject to blackmail by Russia.

The acting attorney general informed the Trump White House late last month that she believed Michael Flynn had misled senior administration officials about the nature of his communications with the Russian ambassador to the United States, and warned that the national security adviser was potentially vulnerable to Russian blackmail, current and former U.S. officials said. 
The message, delivered by Sally Q. Yates and a senior career national security official to the White House counsel, was prompted by concerns that ­Flynn, when asked about his calls and texts with the Russian diplomat, had told Vice ­President-elect Mike Pence and others that he had not discussed the Obama administration sanctions on Russia for its interference in the 2016 election, the officials said. It is unclear what the White House counsel, Donald McGahn, did with the information."
