The Watchman On The Wall

The Watchman On The Wall
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Verse 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Self-Humiliating, Trump Met With Soviet Commander

Hillary Clinton’s campaign team met with the Russian ambassador during the election as well as Donald Trump’s, the Kremlin spokesman said, as he set out to dismiss the “hysteria” surrounding Trump’s links to Russia.

The house intelligence committee will hold its first session on Russia on March 20, with the heads of the FBI, national security agency and CIA expected to appear, plus former intelligence chiefs. 
But Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary for Vladimir Putin, said on Sunday that America was “self-humiliating” in insisting that Russia hacked its election.
And he defended the actions of their ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, whose meeting with Michael Flynn, Trump’s choice of national security adviser, caused  Flynn to lose his job. He was fired after just 24 days when it became clear that he had lied about meeting the Russian, and misled the vice president.

“This is his job,” said Peskov, “He was talking about bilateral relations, about what is going on in the United States, so we have a better understanding in Moscow. “This is what happens all around the world.”
He said that members of Clinton’s campaign had also met with  Kislyak, although he did not give specifics.
“Well, if you look at some people connected with Hillary Clinton during her campaign, you would probably see that Kislyak had lots of meetings of that kind,” he said. “There are lots of specialists in politology, people working in think tanks advising Hillary or advising people working for Hillary.”
Clinton has not commented on this matter yet.
But earlier this month Foreign Policy reported that no one from the former secretary of state's campaign met with Mr Kislyak or any other Russian official. Can you smell "presstitutes"? The magazine also reported that all the other candidates kept the embassy "at arm's length".

And supporters of Clinton would point out that the problem did not come from meeting the ambassador, but rather failing to disclose it.
 Peskov said Moscow was upset about the cloud of suspicion. Trump’s administration has been dogged by a continued stream of reports about ties to Russia, which has infuriated the president and energized his opponents.
“The fact that Russia is being demonized in that sense seems very strange to us,” said Peskov.
“And we are really sorry about that. Because the whole issue takes us away from getting the situation to a better position.”
“Quite unexpectedly, we were in the position where Russia became, shall we say, a nightmare for the United States.
“You are self-humiliating yourself to say that a country can intervene. 
“America, a huge country – the most powerful country in the world, with very, very stable political traditions – and you say that a country can easily intervene and easily influence your electoral process? This is simply impossible.”
