When it comes to the still extant Russian collusion narrative, the left and the Legacy Media (I know, I know) claim as their most solid evidence the meeting between Don Jr. and Natalia Veselnitskaya (hereafter known as the lawyer, because I’m not spelling that again). I say that not only is the meeting not evidence of collusion, but that it is actually far more effective as evidence against collusion.
Stay with me here, because I’m pretty sure this makes sense…
In order for Donald Trump to collude with Vladimir Putin to “steal the election,” or as the media have taken to calling it, conspire to defraud the American people, they must have agreed to take certain actions in concert. In order for them to agree, they must have had some communications channel. An as yet undetected communications channel. You can’t have a conspiracy without an agreement; you can’t have an agreement without communications.
So, if Trump and Putin have this super-secret communications channel, what would be the purpose of sending in some rando lawyer to pass along information? They can pass as much info as they want back and forth, because of the super-secret communications channel. And any dirt the Russians might have on Hillary would have already been in their possession.
When the lawyer called the Trump campaign telling them she had Russian-sourced dirt on Hillary Clinton, the response should have been, “So do we.” If there was any indication that she had any info they hadn’t already received, why wouldn’t the Donald just call up Vlad on the Batphone and tell him to spill?
You might say that they only took the meeting to cover up the real conspiracy. I say you’re piling one conspiracy on top of another when there is still no actual evidence for conspiracy at any level. Like a super-secret, undetected, unbreakable, undiscoverable communications channel.
Find that, and we can talk.
