I completely agree – the media is spreading lies by letting these people on TV:
Republicans want the investigation to wrap up but the time frame is not long compared to other investigations.
This article has time frames for other investigations:
Iran-contra: 6 years, 8 months (1986-1993)
Samuel Pierce, HUD corruption: 9 years (1990-1999)
George H.W. Bush administration, improper search of passport records: 3 years (1992-1995)
Henry Cisneros, mistress payments: 11 years (1995-2006)
Mike Espy, gifts from agriculture company: 6 years (1994-2001)
Bill and Hillary Clinton, Whitewater: 6 years 8 months (1994-2000)
Lewis “Scooter” Libby, CIA leak: 3½ years (2003-2007)
As predicted, much of the money is going to shareholders. This article states:
“Through the end of April, S&P 500 companies are on track to give back a record $1 trillion to investors through dividend increases and stock buybacks…”
I assume Trump, Jr.’s calls to a blocked number were to his father. I just can’t believe his assertion that they didn’t talk about it. Hopefully, the Mueller team knows who the number belongs to.
The Atlantic article states: “The messages show WikiLeaks, a radical transparency organization that the American intelligence community believes was chosen by the Russian government to disseminate the information it had hacked, actively soliciting Trump Jr.’s cooperation.”
This column states: “It was no secret at the time that WikiLeaks was affiliated with the Russians and has long been hostile to the interests of the US government. The Trumps were so interested in winning that they were willing to engage enemies of the state to do it.”
I think we have lies, coverups and cooperation. I don’t know if this constitutes collusion. Trump, Jr. should have notified the FBI instead of working with Russian stooges.
