Trump Also Just Met With Henry Kissinger, aka Richard Nixon’s National Security Adviser


This is truly incredible: Less than a day after firing his FBI director in Nixonian fashion amid reports that federal authorities have issued subpoenas related to the investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s potential connections to Russian sabotage of the 2016 election, Donald Trump just posed for pictures in the Oval Office with Henry Kissinger, who became Richard Nixon’s national security adviser after collaborating in the North Vietnamese sabotage of the 1968 election.

Per a report from the White House press pool, Trump said Kissinger was present to discuss “Russia and various other matters.”

Trump also met Wednesday with Russia’s foreign minister and ambassador to the U.S.
