Default Re: Trump Campaign Guilty of Collusion (Conspiracy)

It is against the US election laws for any foreigner or foreign government to try to influence the US elections.

It's an established fact that Russia was responsible for a social media propaganda campaign and the release of hacked (illegally obtained) DNC/Clinton campaign emails in an effort to influence the US presidential election for the benefit of Donald Trump. This act is codified as "conspiracy against the United States" under the law.

Any attempt by a US person or group to secure the assistance of a foreign government or person, the criminal act of conspiracy against the United States, is to enter into that conspiracy with the foreign government or person. Just asking for that assistance is a criminal act regardless of whether the foreign government or person carries out any intended actions to effect the election. The "conspiracy" exists with or without execution of the conspiracy.

On June 9, 2016, senior members of the Trump campaign including Donald Trump Jr met in the Trump Tower with representatives of the Russian government to secure access to the DNC/Clinton campaign emails that the GRU (Russian intelligence) had in it's possession. This was clearly an effort by the Trump campaign to involve a foreign government in the 2016 Presidential election. The Trump campaign became a "co-conspirator" in the criminal act of "conspiracy against the United States" by the Russians. Within days of the Trump campaign seeking to obtain access to the emails the GRU made those emails available to the Trump campaign with publication by WikiLeaks. The "conspiracy" was successfully executed between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

On Aug 3, 2016, members of the Trump campaign including Donald Trump Jr had another meeting in Trump Tower and this time is was about soliciting possible assistance from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates that were eager to help Trump get elected. In this case it involved an already developed multimillion-dollar proposal for a social media manipulation effort to help elect Mr. Trump. While we're unsure of whether any part of this social media campaign was ever executed the mere solicitation by the Trump campaign established their role as a "co-conspirator against the United States" with foreign countries.

Those claiming that there's no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians are simply lying about the truth. The Trump campaign was actively soliciting assistance from Russian and other foreign countries to commit the criminal act of "conspiracy against the United States" by seeking their influence to effect the election on behalf of Donald Trump.
There is rumor and partisan conjecture of Russia collusion with the Trump campaign. Mueller's witch hunt has been going on for over a year without producing evidence of this highly partisan smear.

The servers allegedly hacked by the Russian boogey men were never independently examined. Comey of the predetermined exoneration letter simply took the word of DNC hired consulting firm the Russians did it. That's a true FBI investigation if you are a Resistance zealot.

When informed their servers were hacked Democrats continued to use them during the campaign. When informed the Russians were supposed to be interfering with the election President Obama neglected to inform the public. Whoever actually hacked the servers or interfered with the election it was of no concern to Democrats until Hillary lost.

Wikileaks made the hacked emails available to the Trump campaign and the world wide media and anyone with a connected Internet browser at the same time. Yet the charge is they did it to help the Trump campaign. Absurd.

The alleged Russian social media campaign focused on issues not helping Trump. In fact there is not a shred of public evidence the Russians did anything but try to undermine confidence in the election. Thanks to Democrats they succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

From CNN, notoriously hateful towards Trump, about the meeting with the Emiratis

Quote:
Alan Futerfas, a lawyer representing Trump Jr., told CNN in a statement "Prior to the 2016 election, Donald Trump Jr. recalls a meeting with Eric (sic) Prince, George Nader, and another individual who may be Joel Zamel. They pitched Mr. Trump Jr. on a social media platform or marketing strategy. He was not interested and that was the end of it. "
CNN has previously reported that Nader was stopped and questioned by FBI agents at Washington Dulles International Airport in January and is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and any links between Trump campaign associates and the Russian government, two sources familiar with the matter told CNN.
A lawyer for Nader, Kathryn Ruemmler, told the Times he has "fully cooperated with the special counsel's investigation and will continue to do so." Ruemmler did not immediately return a request for comment from CNN.
CNN has also reported that Nader attended a December 2016 meeting in New York between Emirati officials and members of Trump's inner circle, and another in January 2017 in the Seychelles islands between the Emiratis and Prince. Nader was also in the Seychelles when Prince met with a Russian banker, the sources familiar with the matter told CNN.
A senior official in Saudi Arabia told the Times that the country has never employed Nader or given him authorization to speak on behalf of the crown prince.
A lawyer representing Joel Zamel pushed back on the report in a statement to CNN, saying that Zamel "offered nothing to the Trump campaign, received nothing from the Trump campaign, delivered nothing to the Trump campaign and was not solicited by, or asked to do anything for, the Trump campaign." The lawyer, Marc Mukasey, said that "media reports about Mr. Zamel's engaging in 'social media manipulation' are misguided. Mr. Zamel's companies harvest publicly available information for lawful use."

Once again, a conspiracy theory manufactured by the Resistance is spun up as "fact" by the hate filled Resistance.
