Trump’s Lies About Russia are Prolific and Verifiable!


This is Trump’s famous invitation to Russia to interfere with the American election.

 

The people of Russia clearly favor Trump.

 

The CIA has confirmed Russia interfered with the US election, and tried to get Trump elected.

President Donald Trump’s senior aide and son in law, Jared Kushner, and ousted adviser Michael Flynn met with the Russian ambassador to the United States at a time when the Trump administration’s relationship with the Russians was under close scrutiny.

Kushner and Flynn sat down in December at Trump Tower with Sergey Kislyak, according to a senior administration official, who described it as an “introductory meeting” and “kind of an inconsequential hello.”
Another national security adviser to the Trump campaign, J.D. Gordon, also disclosed Thursday that he had met with Kislyak, this time during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July.   The Trump/Russia scandal is spinning off in multiple directions, but at bottom it suggests a betrayal of American sovereignty by Trump that is unprecedented in the history of the republic. For a still-unclear combination of reasons — greed for power, greed for money, vulnerability to blackmail, or motivations unknown — the incoming administration cooperated with the undermining of American democracy by a hostile foreign power.
Trump’s lies about his Russia connection are becoming prolific and verifiable.  The lies are troubling and a potential breach of National Security.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke twice with the Russian ambassador to the US, the Justice Department said Thursday, adding to the suspicion over Russia’s ties to the current administration.
During his confirmation hearings in January, Sessions, however, did not mention his conversations with Sergey Kislyak.  He too lied.   Here’s how Sessions answered questions during his confirmation hearings on interacting with Russian officials:
——————————
SEN. AL FRANKEN: “If there was any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this (2016) campaign, what would you do?,” the Minnesota Democrat asked.
SESSIONS: “I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians.”
DATE: January 10
————————–

SEN. PATRICK J. LEAHY:
Several of the President-elect’s nominees or senior advisers have Russian ties. Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election, either before or after election day?” the Vermont Democrat asked in a questionnaire.
SESSIONS: No.
DATE: January 10
—————————
Sessions was a senator and a top Trump surrogate when he met the ambassador twice — in July on the sidelines of the Republican National Convention and in September when he was a member of the Senate armed services committee.
In a statement Thursday, he said reports that he met Russian officials are false.
“I never met with any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign. I have no idea what this allegation is about,” he said.
US intelligence officials consider Kislyak a top spy and spy recruiter, according to current and former senior US government officials. Russia’s foreign affairs ministry denied the characterization.
Kislyak is the same man who met Trump’s former national security adviser, Mike Flynn, before the President took office. Flynn resigned from his post after 23 days over his communications with Russia.

Sessions recused himself from any investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. election.  But he remains under fire for failing to disclose at his January confirmation hearing that he twice met with the Russian ambassador to the U.S.during last year’s presidential campaign

Trump said that Sessions could have been “more accurate” regarding testimony at his confirmation hearing but that he “did not say anything wrong.”

Trump’s statements on his relations with Russia have oscillated wildly. Asked in 2013 if he had a relationship with Putin, Trump said, “I do have a relationship, and I can tell you he’s very interested in what we’re doing here today.” In 2014, he recounted, “Putin even sent me a present, beautiful present with a beautiful note, I spoke to all of his people,” and that he “spoke indirectly and directly” with Putin. In 2015, he boasted, “I got to know [Putin] very well.” Last year, he insisted, “I have no relationship with Putin” and that “I don’t know Putin … I never met Putin.”

trump-and-putin-pointing

Clearly, Trump had a relationship with Putin, and then said he didn’t.  Clearly Russia interfered with the 2016 election, and Trump said they didn’t.  Clearly multiple Trump appointees had ties to Russia and said they didn’t.  No wonder Trump keeps talking about “fake news” and Kelllyanne Conway talks about “alternative facts.”

  1. More Russian slop.

    These articles are scary and revealing as Trump’s cabinet is infested with Russian connections. It is all about world wide money and power.

    These are tedious reading while trying to follow, but so enlightening. Makes me wonder why the Secret Service is ca-ca-ed up!
