If you believe Daddy did not know about it, I have a bridge to sell you.
Did Donald Trump himself know? It would be remarkable if he didn’t. It would mean his son and his son-in-law and his campaign manager had tried to collude with the Russians — endangering his campaign and giving a foreign government blackmail material over his presidency — without telling him. This seems unlikely. But if Donald Trump knew, then it means he knew what he was firing James Comey to hide. Then it is clearly obstruction of justice.
And so we are not merely dealing with a klutzy Watergate domestic issue. We are dealing with a traitor willing to compromise the security of the United States:
This isn’t a scandal as we are used to thinking about it. This isn’t an embarrassment, or a gaffe. This is a security breach. It calls into question whether America’s foreign policy is being driven by the favors President Donald Trump owes Vladimir Putin for his political help or, perhaps worse, whether it’s being driven by the fear that Putin will release far more damning material if Trump crosses him.This is a story that makes clear nothing the current White House says can be trusted. Donald Trump Jr., who enthusiastically tried to work with Russians to upend the election, called allegations that the Trump campaign would work with the Russians “disgusting” and “phony.” His father tweeted, as recently as May 12, that “the story that there was collusion between the Russians & Trump campaign was fabricated by Dems.”
These are acts that cast doubt on the basic patriotism of the current White House — a White House that takes, as its slogan, “America First.”
Recall that just last week this treasonous liar, who already handed highly classified information to Russian spies in the Oval Office (thus betraying Israel) was proposing a joint cyber-security team with Russia.
Lock him up.
