      BREAKING:

      FORMER SOVIET INTELLIGENCE OFFICER WAS IN MEETING

      WITH TRUMP JR. AND HIS SHADY RUSSIAN LAWYER




      By Shannon Barber

      If You Only NEWS

      July 14, 2017


      By now, the whole world knows that Donald Trump Jr., former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, and Daddy Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner met with a shady Russian lawyer by the name of Natalia Veselnitskya during the 2016 presidential campaign. It is also now known that they took the meeting with the explicit purpose of soliciting dirt on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. As if these facts weren’t damning enough, it has now been discovered that a former Soviet intelligence officer was in that meeting as well.

      NBC’s Kasie Hunt tweeted:


      NBC EXCLUSIVE: Also in DJTJr mtg: “a former Soviet

      counter intel officer who is suspected . . .

      of having ongoing ties to Russian intel”

      — Kasie Hunt (@kasie) July 14, 2017


      Now, the idea of any American meeting with someone with ties – be they current or former – to Russian Intelligence is deeply disturbing. It is also much more so in the context of clear attempts to fix an American presidential election, which is clearly what this is about. That also makes this meeting most likely illegal on its face. These revelations come on the heels of Trump Jr. being forced to release emails that show a chain of cartoonishly incriminating correspondence with someone who claimed to be working on behalf of the Russian government with the explicit goal of getting Donald Trump into the White House.

      Now, we have someone else – someone with much more direct ties – be they current or former – to Russian spy agencies. At this point, there is no doubt that there was a serious willingness on the part of the Trump campaign to collude with the Russians to tip the odds in Trump’s favor.

      I’m no lawyer, but I would think that something like this pretty much has to amount to some kind of federal crime. If this isn’t illegal collusion, I don’t know what is.

          I hate to say this but this guy was a Soviet intelligence agent. The Soviet Union ended in, from memory, 1990, at which point he lost his job. According to the news I have heard, he is now a US citizen. Why cannot a US citizen discuss electoral matters? If he is such a red hot Russian agent, why was he given US citizenship? Why should Trump Jr have been alerted to a US lobbyist being present to discuss a point he was lobbying for?

              Reality check time. The lobbyist denies ever being involved in Russia intelligence and there is no way anyone at the meeting should have suspected any problem with this guy. It's not like he was known as an agent.

              As far as the emails, keep in mind the guy who made the "Russia ties" claim is a second rate promoter with a history of wild exaggeration. Likely why he worked with trump so well in the past.

                  Um...Yes, let's check reality! To wit: Whether there was a direct Russian government connection or not --

                  1) They are both Russans

                  2 They were portrayed to Junior and Trumperists as being connected to the Russian government, in fact.

                  3) Junior, Kushner and Manafort were invited to the meeting with whom they were told were Russian-government connected.

                  4) The Russians promised to provide dirt on Secretary Clinton for the benefit ot the p***y-grabber's campaign.

                  5) Whether or not Junior, Kushner and Manafort got what they were promised from the Russians is irrelevant to the crime they committed.

                  6) Junior, Kushner and Manafort conspired with Russians, who they believed spoke for the Russian government, to corrupt the results of the American constitutional electoral process; whether the plot succeded or not is immaterial.

                  7) The conspiracy itself is the crime. That it quite likely was a treasonous conspiracy makes it a whole other matter entirely, too. We've hung folks for less.


                  As one wag noted: when you're caught with your hand stuck firmly inside the cookie-jar, whining there were no cookies in it, doesn't pull your hand out of the jar.

                          Can you say Russian fear mongering? New level of McCarthyism. I love when fools say "most likely illegal" in an article because they can't be bothered to do the research and it's not lying if they don't know the real answer! There's no law against fraternizing with a foreign national, be they intelligence ops or not, without intent to commit treason. And as much as you want it to be, attempting to get dirt on Clinton /is not treason/.

                              Attempting to accept an offer from a foreign government to help change the outcome of an American election IS apparently treason (US Constitution, Article III, Section 3--interpretation matters) and illegal. Did that occur when Donald Trump, Jr., met in June with someone purporting to make just such an offer? It's hard to be certain, since context, interpretation, and details perhaps not yet known to us could affect the answer. But it's a long way from not knowing the "real" answer to say it sure as hell looks likely.
