In the quiver of attacks that the democrats have been using against Donald Trump, no single arrow has a sharper point than the one marked “Russia”.
For nearly 7 months, democratic politicians and pundits alike have been attempting to pin a massively futile conspiracy theory on U.S. President Donald Trump, alleging any and all possible collusion between his 2016 campaign team and the Kremlin. Of course, on its face the accusation are absurd: Several studies have denied finding any wrongdoing, and even boast-happy Russian leader Vladimir Putin has denied the claims.
That hasn’t stopped the left from allowing this theory to evolve seemingly every week, as new allegations surface on a nearly predictable schedule. The latest assertion has come right on time, as the President has just returned home from his first overseas visit as Commander in Chief, and implicates Ivanka Trump’s husband, Jared Kushner, in the ever-widening net that the liberals are casting.
“Jared Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin, using Russian diplomatic facilities in an apparent move to shield their pre-inauguration discussions from monitoring, according to U.S. officials briefed on intelligence reports.
“Ambassador Sergey Kislyak reported to his superiors in Moscow that Kushner, son-in-law and confidant to then-President-elect Trump, made the proposal during a meeting on Dec. 1 or 2 at Trump Tower, according to intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by U.S. officials. Kislyak said Kushner suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities in the United States for the communications.”
“The meeting also was attended by Michael Flynn, Trump’s first national security adviser.
“The White House disclosed the meeting only in March, playing down its significance. But people familiar with the matter say the FBI now considers the encounter, as well as another meeting Kushner had with a Russian banker, to be of investigative interest.”
There are several reasons why the story stinks to high heaven.
First, the democrats have literally tried everything in the book to connect Trump to Russia. With abysmal failures now piling up in an unsightly mess, this could be the last ditch effort they need to continue drawing support from liberal Americans.
Also, Russia’s relationship with Donald Trump was severely strained weeks ago when the U.S. President bombed Sharyat airfield in Syria after a deadly chemical weapons attack originated from the base. The Kremlin then issued a stern warning against any further Syrian action, threatening to respond with military force. This latest Kushner rumor, if it truly came from within the halls of Russian government, could simply be an avenue of revenge for the Kremlin.
