Did Trump’s Lawyer Just Suggest Trump Was At The Meeting Too?
The last week and a half has been a nightmare for those in the Trump Administration as well as those who once worked for the Trump Campaign. As the New York Times slowly dripped details of the June 9, 2016 meeting between Trump Campaign officials and associates of the Kremlin, the White House scurried to get their story straight. The problem is, their story was far from straight. Trump Jr. changed his narrative of how things went multiple times, and even the President contradicted himself.
This confusion spilled over yesterday as the President’s attorney, Jay Sekulow, was interviewed by Jon Karl on ABC. Sekulow began the interview claiming that anything the Trump campaign had done was merely for oppositional research, and that nothing was illegal. He also maintained that President Trump had only recently found out that the meeting even took place. But then it happened, just like President Trump has done all too often in the past, when backed into a corner, Sekulow began blaming others.
“I wonder why the Secret Service — if this was nefarious — why the Secret Service allowed these people in?” Sekulow questioned. “The president had Secret Service protection at that point, and that raised a question with me.”
The problem with this statement is that the Secrete Service was not tasked at protecting anyone working for the campaign. This included Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner, who all have been confirmed to have been at the meeting. The only person who would have required secret service protection would have been the candidate himself, Donald J. Trump…
The “Excuse Time-Line”, so far, is:
- Meeting(s) NEVER took place,
- NO collusion- PERIOD,
- IF there were meetings, they were brief and innocent,
- IF the meetings ever happened, and IF they were longer then 1st stated, then “collusion is NOT a crime”,
- Comey was fired because he poorly handled HRC’s emails,
- Comey was fired to “ease pressure of Russian-ties investigation”,
- Now, I ONLY learned of the meeting(s) that my SON, SON-IN-LAW, CAMPAIGN MANAGER, AND 99% OF MY ADMIN WERE PRESENT AT, THAT TOOK PLACE AT MY TRUMP TOWERS, WHILE I WAS THERE, A FEW DAYS AGO,
- And, besides, it ALL Obama’s fault. He KNEW that we were colluding with the Russians since last May (2016) and did nothing about it.
BUT, THE FACTS ARE THUSLY-
- Obama DID impose sanctions on Russia, and expel some 30″+” Russia spies from America,
- Obama DID warn you IN ADVANCE about both Flynn and Manafort, YOU (DT) hired them anyway,
- You WERE warned that there were investigations ongoing over your campaign’s ties to Russia, and YOU (DT) ignored them,
- Each time YOU (DT) get caught in a new scandal you cry “Foul!” and go through the above “Excuse Time-Line”,
- Lastly, going back to your bogus campaign YOU (DT) blathered incessantly about so-called “Fake News”.
What YOU (DT) hoped to accomplish was to create such chaos and distrust that you could 1. Do what YOU want, 2. Get away with it.
It aint working.
Hmmm, so everyone is “lying” except the biggest Liar, DT? Is THAT it??!!!
What is truly the saddest part of this whole saga?
It’s taken the loss by HRC & for YOU (DT) to win for the MSM and Liberals to ACTUALLY CARE about checking out a candidate’s/politician’s past.
YOU (DT) have single-handedly awoke a primarily Lib-leaning MSM to the FACT that a person’s character and past DO MATTER.
I just hope America can survive this. For full detailed sourcing see HERE.
