We now know the Trump marketing campaign secretly gave their very own information to Russian intelligence in the midst of that assault, which once more presumably helped what the Russians had been doing. As “The New York Times” places it of their new story on this that simply posted tonight, “The revelation, made public in a Treasury Department document announcing new sanctions against Russia, established for the first time that there was a direct pipeline from the Trump 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 data would have allowed Russia to better understand the Trump campaign strategy, including where the campaign was focusing resources at a time when the Russian government was carrying out its own efforts to undermine Trump’s opponents.”
What’s the definition of collusion once more? Not simply passively benefiting from anyone else’s crime, however actively serving to them commit it? Is that what we name collusion? Tell 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 just accept support from a overseas authorities in an election marketing campaign. Trump, Jared Kushner, and the whole staff that was in on the collusion with Russia dedicated a criminal offense. They obtained 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’s now.
Rachel Maddow confirmed how the crime labored, and it’s proof that Trump and his marketing campaign ought to face prison prices.
