The Rhona mentioned above is Rhona Graff, who has been the gatekeeper at Trump Tower and remains the backchannel that people use to get information that they want to be seen in front of Trump. What Donald Trump Jr’s emails reveal is that the Russians did have a network through which they could send information to Trump.

It is all coming unglued for Trump and the Republican Party. The secrets that Trump tried to desperately to hide a being revealed bit by bit. We now know that the Russians had the ability to communicate not just with members of the Trump campaign, but also with the candidate himself.

When the people involved are combined with how the communications structure worked, it is an impossible to escape the conclusion that President Trump knew exactly what was going on and was probably involved in the collusion with a hostile foreign power to win a presidential election.
