It’s strange how the truth works.
First we learn of an extremely sensational claim that Donald J. Trump Jr. met with a Russian Lawyer through the New York Times. I, as the author of a sensational article on the subject, am guilty of this as well (you can read that here).
The political Left embedded in the media and their supporters inhabiting the internet claim that the discovery of this meeting is the fire that has so far proved to be elusive during the 6 month “Russia-Russia-Russia” smoke screen they’ve been laying down to cover for their monumental loses during the presidential campaign season.
Then Trump Jr. openly admits to the fact that he met with a Russian lawyer, a one Ms. Natalia Veselniskaya.
Donny Jr. then releases a chain of e-mails offering the authorities, the press, and the American people complete and utter transparency. The whole thing proved to be a giant nothing-burger (as the saying goes). There is no damning evidence to dislodge Trump and Team MAGA from the White House.
Just recently, The Hill released an article that slams the Obama era Department of Justice.
According to the report by The Hill (you can read that here):
“The Russian lawyer who penetrated Donald Trump’s inner circle was initially cleared into the United States by the Justice Department under “extraordinary circumstances” before she embarked on a lobbying campaign last year that ensnared the president’s eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews.
This revelation means it was the Obama Justice Department that enabled the newest and most intriguing figure in the Russia-Trump investigation to enter the country without a visa.”
The report goes even further stating:
“Just five days after meeting in June 2016 at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr., presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner and then Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Moscow attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya showed up in Washington in the front row of a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Russia policy, video footage of the hearing shows.”
Here is a video of Veselnistskaya sitting behind the Obama Administrations’ ambassador to Russia. She can clearly be seen on the far left of the screen in the front row at about the 4:06 mark.
But it’s not only the Democrats who are involved in this attempt to entrap the Trump team.
Veselniskaya is also connected to Fusion GPS, the same group that is guilty of producing the bunk Trump dossier. Republican Senator John McCain from Arizona turned that dossier over to the FBI and was then circulated through numerous intelligence gathering circles.
According to a report released by The Daily Caller (you can read that here):
Spokesman for Trump’s outside counsel, Mark Corallo, emphasized Veselnitskaya’s relationship with Fusion GPS.
“Specifically, we have learned that the person who sought the meeting [with Trump Jr.] is associated with Fusion GPS, a firm which according to public reports, was retained by Democratic operatives to develop opposition research on the president and which commissioned the phony Steele dossier,” Corallo said in the Monday statement.
Out of complete desperation, and an obviously calculated move the bunk dossier was “leaked” and released through Buzzfeed. It seems the anti-Trump opposition wasn’t concerned if the CIA shell company over at Buzzfeed burned to the ground so long as the false information was released to the public all in the name of damaging Trump’s reputation.
To end this article I will leave you with a quote:
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
