David Corn: Yes, there was collusion


Yes, There Was Collusion. Look at the Manafort Case

A load of evidence is hiding in plain sight.

David Corn January 22, 2019

For years now, Donald Trump has been screeching “No collusion!” It’s been a hollow cry, because throughout the 2016 campaign (and afterward as president), Trump aided and abetted Vladimir Putin’s attack on a US election by echoing Moscow’s disinformation that the Kremlin had not intervened. And, of course, Trump’s three top advisers—campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, and Donald Trump Jr.—met in June 2016 with a Russian emissary after being told she would bring them dirt on Hillary Clinton as part of a secret Russian government operation to help Trump.

1. Really useful summary.

Can it be proved that President Asshole knew about any of it?

To be determined.

2. that's where I hope Cohen comes in

If Cohen can testify to Trump talking to Manafort about the tower, we got him.

3. Given that you couldn't walk around Trump HQ...

without tripping over Russian agents and oligarchs, I think that is a reasonable conclusion.
