Special Counsel Robert Mueller found that the Donald Trump campaign did actively seek the help of the Russians during the 2016 election, meaning collusion did happen; it’s just that there aren’t specific laws on the books against such traitorous treachery. Trump keeps lying about this, falsely claiming that Mueller found “no collusion.” Now Trump has been caught committing yet another traitorous act with Russia.
This afternoon it was reported by major news outlets that Donald Trump had a long phone call with Vladimir Putin this morning, and that during the call, they specifically discussed the Mueller report. Considering that Trump fired FBI Director James Comey to try to stop the investigation into Trump-Russia collusion, and then Trump discussed the firing with Putin’s top deputies in the Oval Office the next day, this couldn’t be more inappropriate – and it couldn’t make Trump look more guilty. NBC News is reporting that Trump and Putin even discussed whether to allow former White House Counsel Don McGahn to testify before Congress.
Once the news broke, Donald Trump promptly went berserk about it on Twitter confessing in the process: “Had a long and very good conversation with President Putin of Russia. As I have always said, long before the Witch Hunt started, getting along with Russia, China, and everyone is a good thing, not a bad thing. We discussed Trade, Venezuela, Ukraine, North Korea, Nuclear Arms Control and even the “Russian Hoax.” Very productive talk!”
That’s right, Donald Trump just admitted that he discussed the Trump-Russia criminal probe with the president of Russia. This alone is an impeachable offense. We all know impeachment is coming before too much longer; today’s news should help make it happen a little sooner.
