What an ugly web they have woven. More unravels in the Fusion GPS – Russian scandal case. Could we be reaching the end? Probably not.
The sheer length that everyone involved went to in order to impeach Trump is disgusting. As we have all witnessed politicians, FBI directors, liberals and even a few Republicans have fallen into the treason category. The Russian probe seems like an endless well of corruption.
So Fusion GPS wrote the memo that was taken into the Trump Tower meeting which is the same memo presented to Russia's prosecutor general https://t.co/Zs63G9s9D2
Earlier in the week, we learned that the female Russian attorney whose June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump, Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner — which remains the most (only?) concrete evidence of attempted collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government — met with the founder of Democratic opposition research firm Fusion GPS on that very same day. Twice. Both before and after the truncated and much-discussed Trump Tower confab. As someone who cut Team Trump very little slack on the Don Jr. emails that preceded their huddle with Natalia Veselnitskaya, the revelations about her schedule on that day strike me as rather suspicious.
Some of Fusion GPS’ defenders have argued that the meetings between Veselnitskaya and Glenn Simpson could have been entirely innocent and coincidental, considering that the organization was also working at the time on behalf of a Kremlin project to repeal an American law despised by Vladimir Putin. Let’s set aside the dubious nature of Fusion GPS’ simultaneous work (a) withthe Russian government and (b)withChristopher Steele, an ex-British spy gathering unverified dirt on Donald Trump, some of which came from high-level Russian sources (and whose research we recently discovered waspartially financed by the Clinton campaign and the DNC, despite previous denials). Is the “unrelated coincidence” explanation still plausible? It’s looking less and less so.
