The abrupt resignation of Trump’s National Security Adviser Michael Flynn on Monday amid reports of his clandestine ties with Russia has raised further doubts about Russian infiltration in the fledgling Trump Administration.

Although in the past three weeks of his stormy rule in the White House, President Donald Trump has managed to silence most dissenting voices in the Democratic as well Republican camps, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts is still trying to stand up to Trump’s authority.

She unleashed a blistering attack Tuesday on the top executives in the Trump team, demanding a thorough probe in their relations with Russia, which is America’s enemy No. 1.

In a series of tweets, the firebrand senator Warren named a number of Trump’s colleagues who are believed to be working hand in glove with Russia or the Russian President Vladimir Putin.

She urged the Congress to hold a bipartisan, transparent inquiry into Russia’s control over Trump and his administration, insisting that the national security is at stake.

She also alleged that Russians conducted a series of successful cyber-attacks on the U.S. election to get Trump elected. In return, Trump is expected to promote Russian interests in America and in the world.

However, Trump has been dismissing all the charges of his hidden ties with Russia. “This Russian connection nonsense is merely an attempt to cover up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton‘s losing campaign,” Trump said today.

He also alleged that the intelligence community – which is supposed to be working under his own administration – is illegally giving information to the media.

But he did not contest the authenticity of the information being leaked from the White House – which shows that even White House staffers believe that Trump is not going on the right track.

So, instead of suggesting Trump and getting abused by him, the employees prefer to route their suggestions to Trump through the honest journalists in media houses such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, MSNBC, and CNN, which are under constant attack from Trump.

However, Fox News TV hosts are Trump’s favorite media persons because they have sold their souls to Trump and are blot on the profession of journalism. As almost all the TV hosts at Fox are visibly biased in favour of Trump, the Fox TV channel has become a kind of Trump video production house.

Warren also wants to know about Trump’s connivance with Michael Flynn and other contacts that happened with Russia before or after the November election.

She said Trump is still making money overseas and may have financial ties to Russia, adding that nobody knows about Trump’s dealings because he has refused to release his tax returns.

That’s not all. Warren informed that Putin is controlling Trump, as Russia has compromising information about Trump. She is referring to a secret dossier that intelligence agencies have shared with Trump and has been mentioned in various media reports, although Trump has angrily dismissed them as “fake news.”

The intelligence agencies have said that the information in the dossier is not verified. But that does not mean that information in the dossier is false. A proper investigation may reveal that the dossier carries correct information about Trump’s affairs in Russia.

“Reports say our own intel agencies have corroborated parts of a dossier alleging that Russia has compromising info about Trump,” Warren said.

Senator Warren also accused the new Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Commerce nominee Wilbur Ross for their close financial ties to Putin and Russia.

Demanding a full investigation, Warren said American national security demands that Michael Flynn should not be allowed to become a scapegoat for the Trump Administration’s disturbing ties to Russia. In other words, if Flynn is treated and probed like a Russian agent, he may reveal Trump’s connections with Putin and Russia.
