Calls for the impeachment of Donald Trump have increased dramatically, following his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland. US intelligence agencies have definitively stated that Russia is interfering in our political system, yet Trump sided with Putin’s denial of interference during their meeting, which has led to massive accusations of treason against Trump.
Trump reportedly was in a great mood after his meeting with Putin, but that all changed after he saw the reports flood in accusing him of treason. Even many Republicans, including his biggest supporters, are condemning Trump’s meeting with Putin.
Trump even dared to call his meeting with Putin better than with our allies in NATO! “While I had a great meeting with NATO, raising vast amounts of money, I had an even better meeting with Vladimir Putin of Russia. Sadly, it is not being reported that way – the Fake News is going Crazy!” Trump said this morning.

Trump’s mood has now “soured considerably,” which makes sense as even highly Conservative publications like the Wall Street Journal declared the news conference “a personal and national embarrassment” for Trump, saying he has “projected weakness.” Trump defender Newt Gingrich said Trump’s meeting with Putin was “the most serious mistake of his presidency.”
Trump was reportedly getting upset last night after returning to the White House “just before” 10 p.m. est. Trump whined and complained to new communications chief Bill Shine, aide Stephen Miller, and even first lady Melania Trump.
Trump, the first lady, Shine and Miller were seen in “animated conversation” aboard Marine One, after they arrived back in Washington Monday night, which you can sort of make out at around 6 minutes into the footage below.
