The latest revelations in the Russia saga should refocus our attention on a critical period during the 2016 presidential campaign. Im talking about the seven weeks or so that began in June 2016, when Donald Trump Jr. planned the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russians, and ended in late July, with GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump publicly calling on Russia to hack Hillary Clintons emails.
What we now know is this. During much of that period, the Trump Organization was secretly pursuing a business deal in Russia that required Kremlin approval even though the most senior members of Trumps own campaign, and possibly Trump himself, knew at the time that Russia was waging an attack designed to sabotage our democracy on Trumps behalf, which they eagerly sought to help Russia carry out.
On at least one occasion, Trump publicly absolved Russia of any blame for this attack while apparently carrying on private financial dealings that involved the office of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Over the weekend, the legal team working for Michael Cohen, President Trumps estranged fixer and personal lawyer, filed a new document requesting leniency, now that Cohen has pleaded guilty to lying to Congress to conceal efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow that continued at least into June 2016, around when Trump clinched the nomination. The new filing says Cohen was in close and regular contact with White House advisers and Trumps legal team while he prepared to lie to Congress raising the possibility that they were actively consulted on this plan.

GO AWAY WAPO.....
Get yer waders on, the sh!t is gettin deep!.....................
No need to waste my time reading propaganda from the Washington Post.
Gee if only they were THIS obsessed about Obama..but they were too busy licking his ass
Oh brother, WaPo and Sargent are reaching to looneyville on this.
Waste of ink.
What the h311 are they talking about? Mueller should be in Gitmo.
I can spell boldfaced liar ... This prick (little nettle) needs flushed like all fecal material spewed from the Post.
WAPOO’s harbinger of what we’re in for as the Nacoms (mational communists) masquerading as in name only democrat party congress members push for Trumps impeachment the next two years.
“...with GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump publicly calling on Russia to hack Hillary Clintons emails.”
As far as anyone needs to read. About six levels of lies in that one statement.
Actually, in the joke he used the word “find”, not “hack” because, as everyone knows, most major players had Hillary’s emails all filed away in some form or another.
And, when Trump said that, Hillary’s server had already been discontinued. That little detail is always glossed over, since it would have been impossible to “hack” her emails.
The DNC server was NOT the illegal server Hillary had set up, which is what Trump was referring to.
Amazon Compost says gotcha! Theyve finally nailed Trumps hide to the wall.
Except for the little fact the Moscow Trump Tower project was legitimate and was undertaken when Trump was a private citizen.
Jeff Bezos’ nasty little blog is the very model of Fake News.
I swear these people have the mentality of a 6 year old.
First, the reference to Russia hacking Hillary emails was quite obviously a facetious joke and secondly, if he were serious about them doing it, he certainly wouldn’t have announced it publicly for all including the press to hear.
The characterization of him even being remotely serious about it is truly infantile.
May as well add spelling speculation.
Deranged, biased, twisted and fabricated is no way to run a newspaper.
Now IIRC, Obama FAILED to inform President Trump about POSSIBLE Russian interference in a timely fashion.
Instead, the administration planted moles within the Trump camp....courtesy of the FBI and CIA.
