Donald Trump, One of the Greatest Memories of All Time, Forgot


Donald Trump described himself as having one of the greatest memories of all time.

Now that George Papadopoulos has plead guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia.  In fact, Papadopoulos believed three individuals all had connections with the Russian government, even though he told the FBI that he didn’t think they had.

On 3-24-16 Papadopoulos has lunch with “The Professor” in London. “The Professor” brings along a woman Papadopoulos later describes as Putin’s niece (“Female Russian National”). (At a later date, Papadopoulos learns she is not his niece.) Papadopoulos writes to Trump campaign officials that the topic of the lunch was “to arrange a meeting between us and the Russian leadership to discuss U.S.-Russia ties under President Trump.” “Campaign Supervisor” responds he will work it through the campaign but that no commitments should be made. “Campaign Supervisor” adds: “Great work.”

Then there was a meeting which took place in Washington on March 31, 2016.  It included a team of foreign policy advisers as well as Trump and then-Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who is now the attorney general. The session has become a key focus of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s wide-ranging investigation of Russia’s interference in the election and possible coordination with the Trump campaign.

President Trump on Friday sought to diminish the importance of the campaign foreign policy meeting where former adviser George Papadopoulos tried to broker connections between Russians and the Trump campaign.  Suddenly the President, with one of the greatest memories of all time, claimed that he did not remember what was said.

 

Just before jetting off on a 12-day trip to Asia Friday, reporters asked President Donald Trump what he remembered about a late March meeting in which, according to court documents, former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos broached the idea of a meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin,

“I don’t remember much about that meeting,” Trump responded. “It was a very unimportant meeting, took place a long time [ago], don’t remember much about it.”

  1. When will we get to use the memory excuse in court? These guys get to use it for treason and money laundering. We need laws on the books to level the playing field, starting with pot users. Most of the pot convictions are not dealers, just users without a scale. Let them come to court and say “I don’t remember having any pot.”

    For the rest of us:
    – I don’t recall a stop sign
    – I don’t recall a 35 sign, just a 50
    – I don’t recall the light being yellow or red
    – I can’t remember if the cruise control was set at 85
    – I don’t remember my tires spinning and smoking when then light changed.
