Every day or so, we get another piece of information that connects the Trump administration to Russia. The newest revelation is that Trump, immediately upon taking office, tried to do a huge favor for the Russians:
Top Trump administration officials, almost as soon as they took office, tasked State Department staffers with developing proposals for the lifting of economic sanctions, the return of diplomatic compounds and other steps to relieve tensions with Moscow.
These efforts to relax or remove punitive measures imposed by President Obama in retaliation for Russia’s intervention in Ukraine and meddling in the 2016 election alarmed some State Department officials.
Electoral Vote puts the pieces of the puzzle together. We now have strong evidence for the following:
- There were extensive, and often secret, contacts among the Trump campaign and the Russians;
- The Russians interfered with the election to the benefit of Trump;
- Trump endeavored to kill the sanctions on Russia; and
- Trump endeavored to kill the investigation into all of this.
Does anyone still think this is a “witch hunt”?
