“If you want to talk further about a relationship with Russia, look no further than the Clintons. If you want to talk about having relations, which you seem obsessed with doing, look no further than there. If you want to talk about somebody who’s been tough on Russia, look at President Trump. He wants more fracking, more coal, more energy, a stronger military, a stronger defense. Those things aren’t good for Russia. I think the distinctions are very clear, and you want to create a narrative that doesn’t exist.”
Donald Trump has some explaining to do. What Sarah Huckabee said at a White House press conference completely contradicted his previous statements.
The White House Press Secretary confirmed that the President of the United States dictated his son’s public response to a meeting with a Russian lawyer. Saying, “Look, the statement that Don Jr. issued is true. There’s no inaccuracy in the statement. The president weighed in as any father would, based on the limited information that he had.”
Huckabee’s statement shows that Trump’s legal team lied and may place him in legal jeopardy. This adds to the speculation that Donald Trump colluded with Russia last year.
The Washington Post reported Monday evening that Trump wrote what turned out to be a misleading explanation for Donald Trump Jr. meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016. The meeting was held after Trump Jr. was promised the opportunity to collect information against Hilary Clinton that he could use to further his father’s campaigns.
Both Sanders’ and The Post’ statements directly contradict what Trump’s lawyer, Jay Sekulow, who said that the president was not involved.
Trump’s campaign is currently under investigation for possible collusion with Russia during last year’s presidential campaign. Trump Jr. meeting with Russian officials is a clear indication that this may have happened. Trump’s involvement in the statement would indicate an obstruction of justice.
Instead, Sanders’ defence was to draw attention to Hillary Clinton and the democrats involvement with Russia.
As usuals eh attacked the reporting as fake news and criticized reports for feeding a false narrative, emphasizing that the reporting was “a phoney scandal based on anonymous sources.”
