Since the investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller began, we’ve all wondered if it’ll be possible to ever prove conclusively that Donald Trump and his 2016 campaign conspired with Russia, and if they did, what was Trump promising in return for the Kremlin’s assistance?
Thanks to a fantastic new report from The New York Times, it now appears we have an answer to that long-asked question:
“Comments by one of Mr. Mueller’s lead prosecutors, disclosed in a transcript of a closed-door hearing, suggest that the special counsel continues to pursue at least one theory: that starting while Russia was taking steps to bolster Mr. Trump’s candidacy, people in his orbit were discussing deals to end a dispute over Russia’s incursions into Ukraine and possibly give Moscow relief from economic sanctions imposed by the United States and its allies.”
Russia helps Trump win the election and he removes sanctions. Quid, pro, and quo.
Former Assistant Attorney General Harry Litman noted Monday on MSNBC that Mueller is clearly at the “radioactive core” of the case against the illegitimate 45th president, calling the scheme:
“A kind of grand bargain involving not simply a sweetheart deal for Russia and Ukraine, but the lifting of sanctions, which Putin dearly wanted. And the glue that holds it all together on the U.S. side are the personal financial interests of the actors. Manafort to make money from [pro-Russian former President of Ukraine, Viktor] Yanukovych, Flynn to do something with the sanctions, and Trump to build his big crown jewel of the Trump Tower.”
And there’s another tasty morsel in the report from the Times that’s likely to send shudders down the corridors of the West Wing and right into the Oval Office:
“As Mr. Trump took office, some State Department officials described worrying inquiries that suggested the White House might be preparing to precipitously drop the sanctions. And various intermediaries floated proposals they said would end the sporadic combat in eastern Ukraine between Russian-funded separatist fighters and Ukrainian forces trying to hold back the loss of more territory.
Michael D. Cohen, Mr. Trump’s longtime fixer, told The New York Times that he left a sealed envelope containing one such plan on Mr. Flynn’s White House desk.”
Robert Mueller has all the evidence he needs to prove that there’s a traitor currently residing in the White House. There can no longer be even a reasonable doubt that Donald Trump is guilty and must be removed from office.
