Donald Trump defends son, suggests that ANYBODY would have welcomed foreign interference in our elections.

Courtesy of The Guardian:

Donald Trump has defended his son in public over his meeting with a Russian lawyer last year, telling a press conference in Paris “most people would have taken that meeting” and ignoring questions about whether offers of political assistance from potential agents of foreign governments should be reported to the FBI.

Actually that is NOT true and has not been true for campaigns in the past.

Trump also sort of fogged over the other two people in this meeting, who for the record were his son-in-law/campaign adviser Jared Kushner, and his campaign manager at the time Paul Manafort.

And for both of them this could be a much bigger problem than it might be for Junior.

To be clear what Trump said in this answer is that he finds it perfectly acceptable to allow a foreign agent, from an unfriendly nation, to give you potentially stolen classified information that can be used to harm your opponent's chances of winning the election.

This is a man with literally NO ethics and NO respect for the rule of law.

Nor will he accept that he might have done something wrong or even that the Russia story is legitimate, as he essentially spells out in a recent interview with Reuters

"The only frustration is that this Russia story is a hoax made up by the Democrats as an excuse for losing an election that they should have won because it’s almost impossible for a Republican to win the Electoral College.” 

"There was zero coordination. It’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. There’s no coordination, this was a hoax, this was made up by the Democrats." 

"This is the greatest con job in history, where a party sits down the day after they got their ass kicked, and they say, 'Huh, what’s our excuse?'” 

"It just continues and continues, and honestly it’s a disgrace, and it’s very bad for our country. And the Russians must be laughing, because this narrative is so bad for us as a country." 

If the Russians are laughing it because their hand picked president is obfuscating just as they expected him to do in response to the findings by American intelligence agencies. 

Which of course undermines people's faith in those agencies and allows Russia much more leeway in their next attacks on our democracy.

By the way Trump has also announced that he is "open" to inviting Putin to the White House.

Courtesy of NBC News :

President Donald Trump would invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the White House "at the right time," according to White House-released excerpts of an off-the-record conversation with reporters aboard Air Force One Wednesday night that was later released. 

"I don't think this is the right time," the president said of the hypothetical White House invitation, "but the answer is yes, I would. Look it's very easy for me to say absolutely, I won't. That's the easy thing for me to do, but that's the stupid thing to do. Let's be the smart people not the stupid people."

Yes let's be "the smart people" and invite the guy who just hacked out election to walk right into the White House.

Hell why not?

After all it's not like his spies have no already been there.

Seriously, this guy is not even pretending that he is not working for the Kremlin anymore.

    GOP Activist Seeking Clinton Emails Who Claimed To Rep Flynn Committed Suicide

    Peter W. Smith, the Republican operative who sought to obtain and publicize emails he thought were stolen from Hillary Clinton’s private server, committed suicide days after he told a reporter about his efforts, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    The Chicago Tribune reported Thursday night, citing a Minnesota state death record filed in Olmsted County, that Smith killed himself on May 14 days after he talked to the Wall Street Journal about his hunt for Clinton’s emails. That account was also included in a medical examiner’s report and a Rochester police report, according to the Tribune.

    Smith left a statement police referred to as a suicide note, according to the report, in which he said there was “NO FOUL PLAY WHATSOEVER” involved in his death.

    According to the Tribune, Smith cited a downturn in his own health and an expiring life insurance policy in the note. He died at the Aspen Suites in Rochester, which the report characterized as a “hotel used almost exclusively by Mayo Clinic patients and relatives.”

    The Wall Street Journal in June reported that Smith contacted hackers in hopes of gaining access to a trove of emails he believed was hacked from Clinton’s server and claimed he had ties to former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Smith told the Journal that he was unable to authenticate the emails several hacker groups offered him, and therefore “told all the groups to give them to WikiLeaks.”

    According to the report, Smith spoke to the Journal 10 days before his death.

    Is Jeff Sessions Engaged In A Cover-Up Of Russian Contacts?

    1. SallyinMI10:57 PM

      I'm sure he is. He's a mealy-mouthed KKK creep.

  3. Trump judges everyone based on what he would do. Since he has NO integrity and NO ethics, he sees no problem in this meeting.

    Trump is an anything to win person. If it means colluding with a hostile foreign power to win, then fine. Legal or illegal has nothing to do with it.

    He LIES. He doesn't even realize he's lying. He just says anything, whether it conflicts with his spokespeople or even something he's previously said.

    He just doesn't give a shit as long as he gets his way.

    Jeebus, I wish he would just drop dead already.

    Washington Examiner -
    Peter Smith, GOP operative who sought Clinton emails, committed suicide: Report

    by Josh Siegel | Jul 13, 2017, 7:08 PM

    A Republican opposition researcher who reportedly tried to obtain emails thought to be stolen from Hillary Clinton's private email server committed suicide days after talking to the Wall Street Journal about his efforts, according to a report Thursday....

    After the reports were published, a man claiming to have been contacted by Smith to help with the email effort wrote a first-person essay claiming he was a Journal source and that he believes Smith was working with the Trump campaign.

    In a blog post published on Lawfare, cybersecurity expert Matt Tait said Smith had a "deep knowledge" of the "inner workings" of Trump's campaign.

    The Journal reported that Smith implied to people he sought to participate in the email effort that he was connected to several Trump campaign officials.

    Smith named the Trump officials, including Steve Bannon, Mike Flynn, and Kellyanne Conway, in a recruitment document for his effort.....

    Washington Post:
    Ivanka and Jared begin the plunge from grace

    Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have tried their best to soar gracefully above the raging dumpster fire that is the Trump administration. Unhappily for the handsome couple, gravity makes no allowances for charm.

    Kushner, already reported to be a “person of interest” in the Justice Department probe of President Trump’s campaign, is arguably the individual with the most to lose from the revelation that the campaign did, after all, at least attempt to colludewith the Russian government to boost Trump’s chances of winning the election.....

    Ivanka Trump’s name has not surfaced in the Russia affair. But she, like her husband, is serving as a presidential adviser, and she received unwanted attention when she briefly took her father’s place at the head table during the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg. We expect officials representing our country to have been elected by the voters or appointed because of merit, not installed by the caprices of heredity....

    Trump may not be the best president.

    What does that mean? It means for the next four years all Americans should train Trump to be a president.

    We need to accept the Russian distractions and Trump's oogling heads of state wives and hopefully in 2020 he will be prepared to be an excellent president.

    Consider it like being a new bride, if she wants her groom to be a great husband then after saying I do, she has to convert her groom from being horny dog frat boy into the man she wants.

    I think what happened here, is for the last twenty some years Russia has been slowly moving in, and now they are here. There are no Americans. And like with Russia, money talks in this country.
    Also, don't forget Putin is the head of a mafia not a country. Trump is trying to be the don corleone over here. The Republicans are the other bosses. Someone commented that if you want to find out what's going on, follow the money.

    Just watched a psychological analysis of donald trump's narcissism on Youtube. Scary stuff. The guy talked about how people like him are populist and in times of insecure economies, and lack of education people naturally flock to the populist guy for security. It was tough stuff to hear since Trump is now the president.

    REVEALED: Ex-Soviet intelligence attended meeting with Kushner and Trump Jr

    Here are 7 reasons why an angry, cornered Trump is a very real threat to America
    The first Trump habit is to lie for advantage, whether about Barack Obama’s birth certificate or about his interest in a certain proud nation of white people led by a manly man. “I have nothing to do with Russia,”
    The second habit is to lie on social media, where habits only lead to more habits, character is capped at 140, and destiny is very yesterday.
    The third Trump habit is to accuse the accuser of the thing you’re being accused of. Remember Hillary Clinton’s nonexistent uranium giveaway to Russia? Neither does anyone else
    The fourth Trump habit is to close the circle, to demand loyalty.
    The fifth habit is to savage the disloyal.
    The sixth habit is to destroy enemies who are not yet intimidated, which points to the growing likelihood that Trump will fire special prosecutor Robert Mueller.
    The seventh Trump habit, which also points to a constitutional crisis, is to escape trouble by “stepping on the gas.”

      Trump Changes Tune On Russian Lawyer Meeting: ‘Maybe It Was Mentioned’

      The President of the United States of America on Air Force One: “No. That I didn’t know. Until a couple of days ago, when I heard about this. No I didn’t know about that,” referring to the meeting between Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort.
      Later the President has a revision: “In fact maybe it was mentioned at some point,” referring to the meeting. (Reporters on the plane initially thought the conversation was off-the-record, but the President said otherwise on Thursday.)

    First of all I've never liked the expression "to take a meeting." A person attends, goes to, has or holds a meeting. One "takes" a tangible thing, like a book or a piece of paper, not a meeting. The image that comes to my mind is that one grasps the meeting between the thumb and forefinger and holds it at a distance, making a face all the while, as if it's somehow dirty.

    Secondly, and most importantly, not everyone would welcome foreign interference in an election in this country - for the simple reason that it is illegal. How dumb can a Trump be?

    The world knows the POTUS declares it is fine to meet with an adversary if it is to his personal advantage even if it is an assault on democratic process and he will destroy people who object to his behaviors. He also has no class. The man is a pig and proud of it.
