Visa of Key Witness Revoked


Trump seems to have a novel approach in the Trump-Russia scandal: how to punish anyone who go against him. Hermitage CEO Bill Browder – a British citizen – delivered devastating evidence to Congress, explaining that there was no doubt as to the collusive type of Donald Trump Jr’s meeting with Russian régime councils during the election. Now the Trump administration has simply revoked the visa of Browder, successfully stopping him from entering into the United States, even as Russia has issued a fraudulent warrant for his arrest.


Browder tweeted that not only did Putin add him to the Interpol list, but the US at the same time extracted his visa. This encouraged Michael McFaul, the former U.S. Ambassador to state how disgraceful this is, calling on Trump to walk back the decision.


This move indicates Donald Trump’s most deliberately illegal move to date when it comes to his continuing efforts at obstructing justice. Browder has already testified, and Trump can’t undo that. But he seems to be trying to threaten future probable witnesses by making an issue out of Browder. Seeing Vladimir Putin’s longing for killing political dissenters, Trump may have just put Browder’s life in danger.


Congress is unlikely to allow Trump to get away with this unopposed, as Bill Browder was their witness to begin with. This also gives Special Counsel Robert Mueller yet another viewpoint from which to tackle Trump for obstruction of justice. It’s also a sign of just how anxious and irresponsible Trump is becoming, as his Russia scandal continues to close in on him. If the Republican Congress were doing its job, it would impeach, eliminate, and delay Trump based on this latest criminal move alone.
