Facts Trump Can Never Run From In Russia Investigation

July 13, 2020


With the dismal nature of the Trump White House again on full display with the commutation of Roger Stone’s sentence comes the need to remind my readers of the dirt we know about with the Russian investigation.  We can only imagine what further dirt historians will find in the years to come.

Here are the indisputable facts:

  1. Trump and his campaign asked for Russia’s help in the 2016 presidential race. (“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing”; “If it’s what you say, I love it.“)
  1. Trump and his campaign got that help – in a contest decided by fewer than 80,000 votes in three states. (“Boy, I love reading those WikiLeaks.”)
  1. Roger Stone lied about his contacts with Russian intelligence and WikiLeaks. (“He lied about the identity of his intermediary to WikiLeaks. He lied about the existence of written communications with his intermediary. He lied by denying he had communicated with the Trump campaign about the timing of WikiLeaks’ releases,” Mueller wrote in his op-ed.)
  1. The president commuted Stone’s prison sentence, despite White House aides disagreeing with the move. (“Roger Stone is a victim of the Russia Hoax that the Left and its allies in the media perpetuated for years in an attempt to undermine the Trump Presidency,” the White House said on Friday.)
  1. And Stone admitted his objective was protecting Trump. (“[Trump] knows I was under enormous pressure to turn on him. It would have eased my situation considerably. But I didn’t,” Stone told journalist Howard Fineman before his sentence was commuted.)
