The Russia gun has a lot more smoke on it as there is proof of Trump campaign collusion in Donald Trump Jr.’s messages to Wikileaks.
The Atlantic got the correspondence between Trump Jr. and Wikileaks:
On October 3, 2016, Wikileaks wrote again. “Hiya, it’d be great if you guys could comment on/push this story,” Wikileaks suggested, attaching a quote from then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton about wanting to “just drone” Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange.
“Already did that earlier today,” Trump Jr. responded an hour-and-a-half later. “It’s amazing what she can get away with.”
Two minutes later, Trump Jr. wrote again, asking, “What’s behind this Wednesday leak I keep reading about?” The day before, Roger Stone, an informal advisor to Donald Trump, had tweeted, “Wednesday@HillaryClinton is done. #Wikileaks.”
Wikileaks didn’t respond to that message, but on October 12, 2016, the account again messaged Trump Jr. “Hey Donald, great to see you and your dad talking about our publications,” Wikileaks wrote. (At a rally on October 10, Donald Trump had proclaimed, “I love Wikileaks!”)
We now know that a member of the Trump campaign was in contact with Wikileaks and coordinating how to use the Russia hacked DNC emails to benefit Donald Trump.
Trump Jr’s emails are a huge step forward in making the case that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia and Donald Trump knew about it. The collusion itself is not necessarily a crime, but the collusion goes straight to the motive of why as president, Trump obstructed justice by firing James Comey.
Donald Trump Jr. met with Russians, and he worked with Wikileaks.
If this is the sort of evidence that Robert Mueller has, Donald Trump probably has impeachment in his future.
