Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) told CNN that House investigators had uncovered power classified evidence of Trump, his family, his businesses, and his campaign’s deep personal, financial, and political ties to Russia.
CNN’s John Berman asked, “Have you seen things on the classified side that you can not tell us about that is even stronger evidence than what is out there publicly?”
Rep. Swalwell answered, “Yes.”
Berman continued, “Ok. So there are things that you can not tell us that you think perhaps are more convincing than the public information?”
Swalwell answered, “There’s a pattern here on the classified and unclassified side of deep personal, political, and financial ties that Donald Trump, people in his family, and people in his businesses, and on his campaign had with a foreign adversary in Russia that converged at the same time that Russia was interfering with our campaign.”
Rep. Swalwell went on to say they hope that the evidence will be coming forward in the coming months.
It seems that investigators have powerful evidence against Trump, his family, his businesses, and his campaign. All four are so closely intertwined that it is not surprising that Trump’s family and his businesses, and his campaign are all involved in this scandal.
The speculation has been for years that Trump won’t release his tax returns because they reveal something about his relationship with Russia. While opponents of Trump want him out of office now, investigations take time.
If Republicans lose control of all or part of Congress in 2018, the investigations will accelerate under Democratic control of all or part of Congress.
Trump’s secrets are slowly coming to the surface, and it is only a matter of time until his full relationship with Russia is visible for all of the world to see.
