It is being reported that Russian hackers were caught discussing how to get hacked Clinton emails to Mike Flynn of the Trump campaign, which would be proof that Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
Buried in the middle of a story about how a Republican operative tried to obtain Hillary Clinton’s hacked emails, The Wall Street Journal reported, “Those investigators have examined reports from intelligence agencies that describe Russian hackers discussing how to obtain emails from Mrs. Clinton’s server and then transmit them to Mr. Flynn via an intermediary, according to U.S. officials with knowledge of the intelligence.”
This little nugget explains why Donald Trump is so invested in getting rid of the investigation into Mike Flynn. It seems that Flynn is the Russia connection to the Trump campaign, and since he was personally close to Trump, the plausible deniability of the President plummets if Mike Flynn was the person who was coordinating with Russia for the Trump campaign.
If Russia was providing the Trump campaign with information, and Trump was using it, that means that the President Of The United States colluded with a hostile foreign power to win a presidential election. It is no wonder why Republicans are working so diligently to cover this scandal up. If the American people ever find out the truth about how Donald Trump may have won the White House, it won’t only mean the end of Trump, but it could also be the end of the Republican Party as we know it.
The smoke surrounding Trump collusion with Russia is too thick to ignore, and if you look closely, you can see small embers of fire beginning to spark as the possibility that Trump colluded with Russia to win the election is moving closer to taking a spot in the center stage of American politics.
