Skip to comments.So why was Trump aide talking to a Russian spy? (Nothingburger Alert)

The CNN team wanted viewers to know there could be a very big development in the Trump Russia investigation.
"CNN has learned why special counsel Robert Mueller wants the cooperation of former Trump campaign deputy Rick Gates," anchor Alisyn Camerota said Friday. "Court documents indicate that Gates could be critical to nabbing even bigger fish in a collusion case involving the Kremlin."
So putting it all together, yes, Gates was "in contact with a Russian intelligence officer." And who knows? Perhaps they were plotting to fix the U.S. presidential election for President Trump. But the evidence that Mueller has revealed, and the statements he has made, suggest something more prosaic. Manafort, Gates, and Kilimnik were engaged in all sorts of shady and possibly illegal conduct in Ukraine. They were not interested in the world knowing about it. In addition, Manafort and Gates were strapped for cash and thought some Ukrainians owed them millions of dollars. Which means there were plenty of reasons for Gates and Kilimnik to be in contact in 2016, none of which they would want prosecutors to know about.

Hell....Soros owns Ukraine....
Ukraine owns Adam Schiff
I wonder if he was ever in the same room as a Russian spy
Why was the Clinton campaign colluding with spies from the UK as well as Russia? To interfere with the election, that’s why. This whole thing is classic Clinton, accuse your opponent of what you’re actually doing. That the ruse has been maintained thus far is the amazing thing. Clearly there are Republicans as well as Democrats who find it useful as a sort of Sword of Damocles hanging over Trump’s head, even if it’s all a bs concoction with no basis in fact.
Wait, what ?
Trump was in collusion with all the RUSSIANS to fix the U.S. presidential election ?
Isn’t there a federal law against collusion ? err,...well, there should be.
Demand a Special Prosecutor to look into Trump’s finances and subpoena his kindergarten coloring records, NOW !
Ignorant, worthless first word.
I'm amazed at journalists abusing this word.
"So" is the new "like."
so if he talks to Herr Müller , that means he is talking to a nazi agent
Maybe Muller should talk to Stone.
But he probably will not like what Stone tells him.
That Assange told him Marc Rich was the DNC leaker
and with his life.
Paid with his life.
Wasn't that yesterday's talking points?
I thought they moved on to obstruction of justice?
It's so hard to follow when the target keeps moving.
This is what happens when you have no crime to investigate but instead you start an investigation to find a crime.
