We now know the Trump marketing campaign secretly gave their very own knowledge to Russian intelligence in the midst of that assault, which once more presumably helped what the Russians have been doing. As “The New York Occasions” places it of their new story on this that simply posted tonight, “The revelation, made public in a Treasury Division doc asserting new sanctions in opposition to Russia, established for the primary time that there was a direct pipeline from the Trump marketing campaign to Russian spies at a time when the Kremlin was engaged in a covert effort to sabotage the 2016 presidential election. Having the polling knowledge would have allowed Russia to higher perceive the Trump marketing campaign technique, together with the place the marketing campaign was focusing sources at a time when the Russian authorities was finishing up its personal efforts to undermine Trump’s opponents.”
What’s the definition of collusion once more? Not simply passively benefiting from someone else’s crime, however actively serving to them commit it? Is that what we name collusion? Inform me extra about how the entire Russia factor is a hoax.
Trump spent years denying the collusion as a result of whereas there isn’t a such crime as collusion, it’s a crime for any particular person to simply accept help from a international authorities in an election marketing campaign. Trump, Jared Kushner, and your complete staff that was in on the collusion with Russia dedicated against the law. They acquired away with it throughout the Trump administration as a result of Trump’s DOJ squeezed and restricted the Mueller investigation, and there was no smoking gun hyperlink to Trump/Russia collusion, however there may be now.
Rachel Maddow confirmed how the crime labored, and it’s proof that Trump and his marketing campaign ought to face felony costs.
