I love the way leftists react to any news of Trump. It leaves leftists scrambling from the corners of the Internet just to attack Trump for saying or doing something outrageous. This weekend wasn’t any different. Everybody is going nuts. The leftists have their smoking gun in which to say, haha, we have you, Trump. Donald Trump Jr. meet with a Russian Lawyer, see there is collusion. In confirmation bias to the nth degree, they’ve all jumped on the bandwagon to demand impeachment.
The Leftists are calling treason. They want Trump removed because someone in his organisation decided to meet with a Russian Lawyer, and that is all they need. They wanted to get some ‘dirt’ on Hillary and use it during the campaign. This is a treasonous act in their minds, and the smoking gun. The problem is, Treason is clearly defined.
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
First, did Donald Trump declare war on the US?
The answer is, of course, no he didn’t. I think with a slogan #MakeAmericaGreatAgain, he definitely hasn’t declared war on the United States. An argument could be made about Antifa being traitors to the United States, but name one thing where he is at physical war against America.
Second, giving aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States. Despite strained relations between Russia and the United States, they are not enemies. It would certainly be bad optics if Putin, for instance, came over and enjoyed a weekend at the Whitehouse, but it wouldn’t be an illegal act.
What Donald Trump Jr. did is about as horrible looking as Bill Clinton seeing Loretta Lynch during the presidential race. We have no proof that anything illegal happened in both, they just look bad. It looks like Clinton told Lynch to drop the investigation of Hillary, and it looks like Trump went to get some dirt on Hillary.
Here’s the think about the dirt on Hillary. That is still not an illegal act. It isn’t a war against the United States, and according to both Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer, and Trump Jr. nothing compromising was ever exchanged, unlike Canada green-lighting, the sale of 2 Canadian high-tech military firms to China, except China isn’t our ‘enemy’. We can gripe and complain, but it isn’t illegal to talk shit about political opponents with people outside our country because it doesn’t fit the legal definition of treason.
“After pleasantries were exchanged, the woman stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Ms. Clinton,” Trump Jr. said in the statement. “Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information.”
Trump Jr. added that the lawyer then changed subjects and began discussing a separate issue: the adoption of Russian children and a US law known as the Magnitsky Act, which allows the US to withhold visas and freeze the assets of Russians thought to have violated human rights.
Veselnitskaya founded a group purporting to seek the removal of Moscow’s ban on the adoption of Russian children by US citizens, which it put in place in retaliation for the Magnitsky Act; she has also sought to repeal that law.
So, he went to get info on Russians funding Clinton, but he didn’t get anything. Again, this is not an illegal act. Then she changed the subject to include what she really wanted to do. She wanted to work with them to remove a law that she felt unfair. When I hear the words, thought to have violated human rights, what the heck does that mean? And why Russia, and not any government, like China that we have proof of human rights violations? Having just heard of this law, it is too narrow, and it should have far greater political reach – someone amend it.
Second, she’s looking to help US families adopt Russian children. Ohhhh, that sounds so scary and bad. Those evil Trumps, listening to someone who wants to petition to remove a discriminatory law and to open up adoptions again.
Trump Jr. said that when Veselnitskaya began discussing these other issues, “It became clear to me that this was the true agenda all along and that the claims of potentially helpful information were a pretext for the meeting. I interrupted and advised her that my father was not an elected official, but rather a private citizen, and that her comments and concerns were better addressed if and when he held public office.”
The meeting lasted about 20 to 30 minutes, he said, adding, “As it ended, my acquaintance apologized for taking up our time. That was the end of it and there was no further contact or follow-up of any kind. My father knew nothing of the meeting or these events.”
This sounds so damning. He stopped her and told her, they didn’t have the power to talk about this any further. There were no follow-up meetings, no lobbying the president, and no removal of that law. Trump is guilty, grab our torches and pitchforks guys. We need to string him up.
Ms. Veselnitskaya said in a statement on Saturday that “nothing at all about the presidential campaign” was discussed at the Trump Tower meeting. She recalled that after about 10 minutes, either Mr. Kushner or Mr. Manafort left the room.
She said she had “never acted on behalf of the Russian government” and “never discussed any of these matters with any representative of the Russian government.”
Again, this is a nuffinburger. We have a private citizen, who is an advocate, who wants to remove the adoption ban between the United States and Russia by removing a stupid law that is too narrowly focused, as it only deals with Russia and not all individuals who are guilty of human rights abuse, meeting with Trump’s team in hopes that the law be changed or removed, OMG. And this is what leftists have upvoted 43k times!
It just shows how desperate they are. It doesn’t show any kind of illegal activity. It may be smoking, but it is not a gun, its a smoking pile of shit.
