Bungled Collusion Is Still Collusion

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/449481/donald-trump-jr-emails-demonstrate-immoral-collusion

“It was literally just a wasted 20 minutes, which was a shame,” Donald Jr. told Sean Hannity. A shame? On the contrary, a stroke of luck. Had the lawyer real stuff to deliver, Donald Jr. and the others would be in far deeper legal trouble. It turned out to be incompetent collusion, amateur collusion, comically failed collusion. That does not erase the fact that three top Trump-campaign officials were ready to play. It may turn out that they did later collaborate more fruitfully. We don’t know. But even if nothing else is found, the evidence is damning.

There is no statute against helping a foreign hostile power meddle in an American election. What Donald Jr. — and Kushner and Manafort — did may not be criminal. But it is not merely stupid. It is also deeply wrong, a fundamental violation of any code of civic honor.

Nothing new... So many neo-liberal politicians put the interests of supra-national entities above those of their own nation.

tempest in a teapot.


The russians "hacked" the election by sharing emails that the american people had a vested interest in seeing to help them make a studied, considered decision on who to vote for.

Perhaps the russians didn't hack the republicans, and perhaps that's not fair, but that is how it works: You help the side you want to win.

Focus less on the Russians and more on the trumps.

Should the Trumps work with Russia to get illegally obtained documents to help them win the election?
