The Trump/Russia investigation For Dummies

Post by T on Sun Dec 03, 2017 5:01 pm

A summary
US intelligence agencies believe Russia tried to sway the election in favour of Trumpery and a special counsel is looking into whether anyone from his campaign colluded in the effort.

There is evidence
Senior members of Trumpery's team met Russian officials. Several of these meetings were not initially disclosed.

The meetings
Ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn lied to the FBI about meeting the Russian ambassador to the US before Trumpery took office. Flynn has entered a plea deal, prompting speculation that he has incriminating evidence.

Trumpery's son, Donald Jr, met a Russian lawyer during the campaign who had "dirt" on Hillary Clinton. Adviser George Papadopoulos has admitted lying to the FBI about meetings with alleged go-betweens for Russia.

The others involved

Trumpery's son-in-law Jared Kushner is also under scrutiny, and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been charged by investigators with money laundering, unrelated to the election.

And what about Trumpery?
Since he fired the man leading one of the investigations, ex-FBI Director James Comey, there are questions whether the Trumpery has obstructed justice.
