DON'T BE FOOLED! Trump "Bloody Facelift" Tweet Is A Distraction From New Russian Collusion Story!
Donald Trump is a repulsive, ignorant, misogynistic vulgar clown.
That being said... DON'T BE FOOLED!
Trump "Bloody Facelift" tweets, while grotesque, are nothing but a distraction from what is really scaring him.
What he did yesterday by attacking Mika B and Joe S was only about obfuscating and distracting from the really damaging news that he knew was going to be unveiled later in the day.
This came in the form of a Wall Street Journal report that released a report at 5:14 p.m last night detailing alleged collusion between his campaign and Russia.
The WSJ detailed actions of a long time GOP operative named Peter W. Smith who had apparently been in contact with Russian hackers to see it he could obtain the 33,000 emails that Hillary Clinton supposedly deleted from her private email server due to their personal nature.
Smith told the Journal that he had gotten the idea after hearing Donald Trump, while on the campaign trail, urging Russia to find and release Hillary Clinton's "deleted emails" during a July 2016 campaign rally.
The story reports that Smith reached out to several computer security experts, many of them Russian, in the hopes of gaining access to the email trove.
The report uncovered that Smith also implied in conversations with his associates that he was working with Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, Donald Trump's former National Security Adviser, who was fired after failing to disclose that he had contact with Russia’s ambassador during the Trump campaign.
The Journal reports that Smith believed Flynn and Flynn’s company, Flynn Intel Group, were “allies” in the search for emails. Smith and one of his associates also claimed they had a line of communication with Mr. Flynn and his consulting company.
In one Smith email reviewed by the Journal, he intended to entice outside experts to join his work by offering to make introductions to Mr. Flynn’s son, Michael G. Flynn, who worked as chief of staff in his father’s company.
It was revealed that hackers were recorded saying that if they did recover any of Clinton's deleted emails that they would get them to Peter Smith using Gen. Flynn as an intermediary.
According to one of the hackers phone conversation, Mr. Smith told the computer expert that he was in direct contact with Mr. Flynn and his son. The expert said that based on his conversations with Peter Smith, he understood Lt. Gen. Flynn to be coordinating with Smith’s group in his capacity as a Trump campaign adviser.
If true this would be the most specific potential evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Smith ultimately did receive some emails from hacker groups prior to the election, he told the Journal, but after vetting said he couldn’t be sure enough of their authenticity. Smith told the hackers to leak them through WikiLeaks so he would not have to personally vouch for them.
Those emails have never surfaced, according to the report.
Smith, a Chicago investment banker, has had political run ins with the Clintons before. During the 1990s, he helped subsidize a large-scale effort led by conservative donors to procure and publish damaging information about then-President Bill Clinton in which he spent “$80,000 on private detectives in a hunt for the black baby that Clinton was rumored to have sired.
Smith died at the age of 81 just 10 days after the Journal interviewed him.
*Conspiracy theorists jump in here!
Neither Flynn nor the White House has responded to the Journal’s request for comment.
PS - The fact that the WSJ called the White House for comment is the give-a-way as to how Trump knew the story was coming!
