The Trump Team and The Russians
Let’s start with this. Tell me exactly what the Democrats and MSM are saying that Trump and team did with the Russians. What are they accusing them of? Do you know? And exactly what do they think Trump and team did to break the law? Do you know?
I know it has created hysteria and noise, but can you explain it?
Here’s what we understand it is:
1. The Russians tried to influence the US election.
Is that a surprise? They do it across the world. Exactly what did they do? They hacked the DNC, yes. They tried to hack the RNC, but failed because security was too tough. What has that got to do with Trump and team?
2. Did Trump and team try to solicit the Russians to hack the Democrats?
Do you think the Russians (or Chinese, Iranians or anyone else) need solicitation to hack U.S. political parties, companies or people? We do it to them, they do it to us. If I told you countries were trying to hack us would you be surprised?
Now, Trump said once on TV to the Russians if you have Hillary’s lost 33,000 emails please release them. The MSM leaves the word “if” out when reporting this. He said it in frustration at the investigation and what she might be hiding in wiping the servers clean. Many of us wanted to know if she was hiding something. That seems more likely to me than Trump solicited the Russians.
3. The FBI and U.S. intelligence agencies are looking into contacts.
So far they have reported none. Yet the coverage and charges in the MSM give a far different impression. This from the same people who said there was “no there” in the Benghazi and Hillary probes.
4. What did Sessions do?
He testified he had no meetings or discussions with any Russians on the election. Yesterday it was reported Sessions met with a Russian Ambassador twice, in July and September. Sessions said his story was consistent because those meetings were part of his work as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Once at a dinner and once in his senate office.
Sessions says he is recusing himself from any campaign-related investigations.
5. Obama warned the Russians in October and cleared them in November.
You may remember Obama warned the Russians about our upcoming election, and in fact told Putin to “cut it out”. Asked in November if the Russians hacked the election he said no.
6. Was Wikileaks involved in all this?
The charge is that Wikileaks received the hacked emails that they released from the Russians. Did they? Probably. But remember they tried to hack the RNC too and failed.
Now the Wikileaks release showed zero Trump, Republican or any involvement by anyone. They did show how DNC staffers favored Clinton during her primary campaign against Bernie Sanders — a sideshow that prompted Debbie Wasserman Schultz to resign as DNC head. That Donna Brazille, her replacement, fed Hillary the debate questions ahead of time. Later in the campaign, WikiLeaks released tens of thousands of emails from the Gmail account of John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman, who you may recall used password as his password.
7. Is this really unusual?
Here’s a report on that from Bloomberg Politics, no conservative beacon.
“The cyber element might just be a new twist on an old story. The U.S. intelligence report says Russia, and the Soviet Union before it, “has a history of conducting covert influence campaigns focused on U.S. presidential elections” with an aim “to disparage candidates perceived as hostile to the Kremlin.” And it’s not just the U.S. Already, Putin’s Russia has been accused of meddling in European elections taking place this year”.
So we ask again, exactly what are the Democrats and MSM saying that Trump and team did (besides win the election against their desire and predictions)?
The people calling for Sessions immediate resignation are Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. They are all over the MSM expressing their indignation. Which to us is incredible. They are the same two who defended Loretta Lynch’s meeting with Bill Clinton on that plane and saw nothing wrong with Attorney General Holder’s lie about the false narrative of Hands Up, Don’t Shoot. Politics today is just nasty and so partisan it is hard to take.
Now if Sessions did something let’s get the evidence and take action. We are all for that. As of now, he answered a rambling question about Trump surrogates and the Russians saying he was unaware of any meetings. He left out the two meetings he had, which he said were official business and not on the election. (One at a dinner). If he is lying, then he goes, but where is any evidence of that? The meetings were not even one on one.
Let’s not convict because the MSM and far left has an agenda.
