One of Russia’s top diplomats admits they were colluding with the Trump team throughout the campaign:
The Russian government was in touch with members of President-elect Donald Trump’s political team during the U.S. election campaign and knows most of his entourage, one of Russia’s most senior diplomats told the Interfax news agency on Thursday….
“There were contacts,” Interfax cited [Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei] Ryabkov as saying. “We are doing this and have been doing this during the election campaign.”
Such contacts would continue, he added, saying the Russian government knew and had been in touch with many of Trump’s closest allies. He did not name names.
“Obviously, we know most of the people from his (Trump’s)entourage. Those people have always been in the limelight in the United States and have occupied high-ranking positions,” he said.
“I cannot say that all of them, but quite a few have been staying in touch with Russian representatives.”
A candidate running for president of the United States actively collaborated with America’s number one geo-political rival. Russia rigorously targeted the DNC and Democrats while ignoring the RNC and Republicans, maximizing the timing of their leaks for the utmost devastation against the Clinton campaign. All the while, Trump encouraged even more hacking against his political opponent, refused to accept intelligence assessments of Russia’s skullduggery, and now continues to oppose any investigation of foreign interference.
There is no better example of treason in American history than Donald Trump’s hostile takeover of the Republican Party and the Federal government.
