Trump’s ties to Russia.

Standard

It can be completely honourable for an American politician to meet Russian officials, jouranlists , business executives and the like. If such meetings are innocent a candidate would have no hesitation in telling the truth about such meetings.

Over and again the Trump camp has denied having any contact with Russian state bodies or semi-state bodies. Time and again such claims have been proven bogus. Why does the Trump team feel compelled to deceive the public? What have they to hide?

There is a very clear pattern of behaviour. Moreover, Trump seemed favourably disposed towards the Kremlin which Hillary Clinton did not. Why would the Russian Federation not wish to assist Trump? It is a matter of public records that the United States has interfered in foreign elections on many occasions.

There was a meeting between Donald Trump, Junior and a Russian official at which dirt on Mrs Rodham Clinton. It is common practice for politicians to seek embarrassing material on their opponents.  It has long been alleged that Russians sought to help the Trump campaign in this manner. Now there is proof that such assistance was offered and accepted. How much smokier does a gun have to get?

Why should anyone trust Trump? He is staggering dishonest. He has told countless provable lies.

  1. Very true! Unfortunately, we live in a post-truth era, where controversial facts are spouted at the same rate as controversial fake news. Rewind even a year, maybe two, and this type of thing would be totally unthinkable.

    • It is staggering that he has changed the paradigm. Trump constantly tells the most barefaced falsehoods. There are lies that can be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. Yet this does not damage his credibility among his true believers. I vainly hope that an endless drumbeat of these allegations and the wealth of evidence about his activities will gradually erode he has among his supporters.
