How a Kid From Victoria May Become Trump's Worst Nightmare
If Donald Trump isn't disparaging something as "fake news" does that make it real?
Ordinarily Trump meets scandal head on, denouncing adversaries as liars and media outlets who run their stories as fake news.Yet, when it comes to the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Trump seems to have dummied up.
Data wizard, Victoria's Chris Wylie, has turned out to be a whistleblower extraordinaire, a gift that just keeps on giving.
Wylie seems to be implicating a load of big names from Team Trump. Now he's brought Giuliani into the spotlight. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
The Republican National Committee (through CA's Jesse Kamzol), Bannon, the Mercer Twins (Robert and clone daughter), Giuliani, John Bolton, Trump himself (he supposedly met repeatedly with Alexander Nix). This seems to have the makings of a possible criminal enterprise spanning the breadth of the now dominant Trump branch of the Republican Party.
This is not a short story. It is more like a book with many chapters. We can't begin to guess who else will be snared in this web but I'll bet it will make for great reading.
And it does seem that we owe a big debt of gratitude to a young guy from Victoria.
