Trump Just Admitted to Aiding and Abetting Russia

For close to a year now, candidate Trump and President Trump have denied, denied, and denied when it has come to Russia’s possible meddling in the U.S. election. When evidence was clearly in front of us all, instead of taking a pro-active approach to putting an end to what may be the worst attack on American democracy since 9-11, he deflected and deflated the entire idea that Russia was at all involved.

When 17 intelligence agencies pretty much stated that Russia was behind the 2016 election interference and that it appeared their goal was to harm Clinton and help Trump, instead of attacking Russia, Trump attacked the intelligence agencies. It was almost as if the man was too concerned about his ego to even entertain the idea (at least publicly) that his election win may have actually been attributed to interference in our democracy. He even went as far as to attack Democrats such as Senators Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi because they had been photographed in the past with Putin and/or his associates.

“We should start an immediate investigation into @SenSchumer and his ties to Russia and Putin. A total hypocrite!” he tweeted on May 3, “I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it,” he continued in a second tweet.

On multiple occasions, President-elect Donald Trump and President Donald Trump were briefed by high ranking members of the intelligence community, presenting him with solid evidence that Russia had interfered in our elections. After each and every briefing, Trump tweeted, gave interviews and even held press conferences stating the contrary, or at the very least blowing such claims off, and never once admitting that Russia was the culprit.

It wasn’t until Thursday, in an odd turn of events, that the President began to publicly consider that Russia may have actually been involved.

“By the way, if Russia was working so hard on the 2016 Election, it all took place during the Obama Admin. Why didn’t they stop them,” he tweeted.

On Friday things took another turn into the Twilight Zone as Trump continued blaming President Obama for Russia’s interference, this time lashing out at the former President for not taking action.

“Just out: The Obama Administration knew far in advance of November 8th about election meddling by Russia. Did nothing about it. WHY?”

The ironic thing about all of this is that Trump also knew about Russia’s role well prior to November 8th and has been pushing his administration and fellow Republicans to ease the sanctions Obama put in place to penalize Russia at the end of December. Meanwhile, up until last week, he had been denying, or at least shedding doubt, that it was Russia that was involved.  All the while he had been trying to get closer to the country which stabbed our democracy in the heart.

To cap things off, in a series of two tweets yesterday, Trump continued attacking Obama, even going as far as suggesting that the former President did not act on information, in an effort to prevent Clinton’s chances at the Presidency from being damaged.

“Since the Obama Administration was told way before the 2016 Election that the Russians were meddling, why no action? Focus on them, not T! Obama Administration official said they “choked” when it came to acting on Russian meddling of election. They didn’t want to hurt Hillary?”

It now appears, that not only is Trump admitting that Russia did in fact meddle in our election process, but he is blaming Obama, who did in fact act, for not acting.  Meanwhile over the last 5 months he has done absolutely everything in his power to aid and abet the Russians. By admitting that the Russians did in fact hack our democracy, he in essence is admitting to aiding and abetting them. The President was clearly warned of what was going on, yet instead of fighting back, putting up protective mechanisms, he deflected attention elsewhere, blamed Democrats for the ‘Hoax” and continued to push his administration to ease the very punishments that Obama placed on Russia right before leaving office. If this is not a clear definition of aiding and abetting, then I don’t know what is.

If Trump really did not believe that Russia was behind the attacks, then his actions could have been justified in a court of law.  Trump, however, decided to make it apparent, via these recent Tweets, that not only does he now believe Russia attacked our election, but he thinks President Obama should have done more to prevent the attacks.  That’s telling!

    There are many journalists in the mainstream media who have sold their souls; thus, surrendering their code of ethics: “To seek the truth and deport it, minimize harm, act independently, be accountable and transparent” (SPJ, 2014). Take away from this what you will.

    • jean12

      All of Trump’s administration—-and Fox News anchors—-have sold their souls to the Devil, himself, Trump. He’s thrown everyone he’s touched, except Putin, under the bus and they still bow down to him. Ever wonder why Putin is the ONLY person Trump has never said a disparaging word about? We all need
      the answer to that question! ASAP

      • MikeFeldman

        Name the Fox News anchors who have sold their soul to the devil.

        • jean12

          Most of those on the show, mostly the morning Fox and Friends hosts, that throw softball questions at him and constantly nod and smile, or giggle, when he says something so outrageous that any other news station would show outright shock. Shepard Smith, I have read, seems to be the only host not to pretend Trump is ‘all that’. I stopped watching FN last year when Trump said something so disturbing during the morning show and not one host said a word. Just sat there with grins and nods of the head. Reading several media reports regarding Fox is Trump’s ‘best friend’ is very disturbing. They seem to encourage his mentally disturbed spewings.

  • MikeFeldman

    This article is ridiculous, plain and simple. The writer concludes that by acknowledging there was Russian hacking, Trump aided and abetted the Russians. Obama and Clinton probably knew about the hacking before Trump. Did they aid and abet the Russians first? Why weren’t any voting stations warned of the possibility of Russian hackers? The answer is simple. They thought there was no chance Trump would win so it was inconsequential. Obviously that changed and an explosion, any explanation for the loss was necessary.

  • Concerned American Citizen

    This is absolute BS and you are posting more fake news. Because Trump repeated what he learned about the truth of Russian hacking in 2016 under Obama’s reign is not aiding and abetting… are u a lawyer, because if you are you need to be disbarred. I will reveal this stupid news feed for the lies you have spewed. You are being disrespectful of the US government. You POS.. making money off of lying to hurt people. I guess all politicians who have repeated the known truth about the 2016 Russian hacking under Obama, are guilty of aiding and abetting the Russians too and that makes you guilty as well.

    • Liam Holden

      Dear Concerned American Citizen. Take a chill pill and relax. No need to go overboard as to reporting this news feed just because you are pro-DUMP TRUMP. If you really are concerned and if you are American then you should be worried, very worried for your own life. Open your eyes widen your knowledge rather than just blindly accepting all Trumps lies as true. Remember he spent his entire life as a bsunessman and stupid haggards like you voted him to get to Power. Wonder if you ever made it out of school. What an ignorant twat!

      • mark w

        Ah so…because HRC and Kaine are the paragons of truth and innocence? OMFG, ROFLMAO

        OMFG, HRC was worse because at least our President didn’t have his fingerprints all over an coup d’etat in Ukraine, Libya and attempted hit on Assad.

        And Kaine? He attempted to flip the election is his area by allowing felons the vote. Felons don’t have the Constitutionally guaranteed right keep and bear arms so what sense does it make to give them the right to vote?

        Hillary spent her entire life as a political climber and ignorant twats like you nearly got her elected.

        • Liam Holden

          You are right, he doesn’t have fingerprints all over…ummm. whatever,,,, but he sure left his fingerprints all over pu*s*ies of so so many women. No wonder he loves grabbing them by their pu*ssies….Make America Great Again… haha.

          • MikeFeldman

            You’re a class act. You make the basket of deplorables look like saints.

      • MikeFeldman

        The left may be lousy at winning seats, but their ignorant supporters sure are good at showing they are low lives. What idiots like you don’t realize that there are 2 different things going on here. 1) baseless claims and insults from mindless anti-Trumpers. 2). Informed individuals who may not be supporters of Trump, but who do support the truth, reality and process.

        • Liam Holden

          in all my comments i have never mentioned who i support, did i say i like hillary, did i ever say i like democrats nope..i believe once in power, The President is neither a democrat nor a republican. He is The People’s Guy. And look what Trumps doing…. blaming left, right center everybody around him, he loves showing off, he’s the BOSS. well he is and everybody knows that, but what an arrogant prick he is. If anything he needs to be humble and let the investigators do their work… but nope he has loads of time complaining, whining, pointing fingers…oh man what a drama queen and you know what — everybody knows he’s on a mission to throw around as many obstacles to evade the truth – his russian connection. I firmly believe it will be out, well i just learned jared kushner had only secured 280, millton $ loan from Deutsche Bank – the center of Russian money laundering scheme.I think enough said, but if you fail to look past their media image, surely you are as big a bigot as TRUMP or simply put you are very very naive. Now Trump could’ve been a democrat and my response would have been the same!

          • MikeFeldman

            I am not a bigot and I’m certainly far from naive. And with all your posting and verbal abuse of anyone who challenges you, the best you can come up with is that Trump is an “arrogant prick”. Barack Obama was and is pretty arrogant, but the little weenies didn’t have much to say for 8 years. Ity would have seemed racist. Grow a pair.

          • Liam Holden

            of course he is an arrogant racist prick. Don’t remember the any presidential candidate mocking a disabled person. I’m sorry you are Not naive… but a BIGOT yes..

          • MikeFeldman

            what race was the disabled person?

          • Liam Holden

            With all the travel ban on Muslims, his recent snubbing for the Eid festival says it all. He’s racist and Islamophobia is deeply rooted in his heart. Muslim this… Muslim that… Oh dear !! Atleast you have come out of your little world to admit that Trump is a prick. I win!

          • MikeFeldman

            What a baby. I never said he wasn’t a prick. All I’ve ever said was that he won the election, and no one, even you, has shown that he should not be in office. The temporary travel ban against countries that cannot properly vet emigrants has been upheld as constitutional and within his rights to protect the country. Europe is a mess, because no borders has put its citizens in harms way. I’d call you a loser, but I’m not immature like you. And I don’t use exclamation marks like a kid in the 6th grade.

          • Liam Holden

            So an exclamation mark is only good up until you pass 6th grade. OK. This is new. I will take up this issue with my school because its freaking me out now.

            So I only mentioned ban on Muslims. Please look up on a world map which these countries are under the ban list. Check the TSA website for stats regarding the number of people making it to USA every year. Check the nationalities of people committing terrorist attacks and then gauge up the travel ban. I hope you can manage that or do u need a help from a 6-grader?

          • MikeFeldman

            the nationalities of people committing terrorist acts coincides with the countries included. The ban does not include students or persons rejoining family. I can’t imagining ever needing help from you.

      • Concerned American Citizen

        Dear Liam.. You are an ignorant, uneducated, nasty, classless asshole that called me the most vile name in the vocabulary and you don’t even know me. I have done my research and I believe Obama, Hillary, Bernie and the rest of the liberals are all crooks. And just because Trump comes in and starts cleaning out our dirty, corrupt government, the left can’t handle it. It will cut off their flow of crooked money and they know it. I am proud to be a Patriot who voted for Trump along w/ 66 million other people and if you don’t like it, O don’t

        • Liam Holden

          Did someone hit you with a horse tranquilizer? LOL

            Thoughtful response? Or a kid shooting of his mouth.

            She voted a rapist and now she is a Concerned American Citizen. Oh the irony!!

  • Daithi

    It seems strange that after denying that there was any hacking, he now blames Obama for not stopping it. Now either it happened and nothing was done or it didn’t happen and there was nothing to do. He can’t have it both ways

    • Lisa Dawn Cheney

      The thing is tho. Obama did all he could.

      • Daithi

        That’s not what I’m saying Lisa. He seems to be saying, at the same time, “it never happened” and, “it happened but it was all Obama’s fault”

    • Concerned American Citizen

      The hacking was done under Obama in 2016 and Obama never reported it with the plan of Trump being blamed for it.

      • Daithi

        I have no idea what was in anyone’s mind in 2016 or who wanted to ascribe blame to whom or why. The point is – Trump is simultaneously saying “It never happened” and “It happened but it was Obama’s fault”. Both of those can NOT be true at the same time

        • MikeFeldman

          I think your missing the point. It’s easy to do because many in the media are purposely clouding issues. Trump did not deny Russian hacking. He denied collusion with the Russians. Obama as President was aware of the hacking. The DNC knew they’d been hacked, and sent the FBI away. They said they’d do their own investigation. Of all the players involved, Trump would be the least apprised by intelligence briefings, before the election.

          • Daithi

            “I mean, it could be Russia, but it could also be China. It could also
            be lots of other people. It also could be somebody sitting on their bed
            that weighs 400 pounds, OK?

            That’s “not denying” it happened?

  • William Cormier

    The entire adult Family Trump have their hands in Russia, money laundering, & who knows what the financial crimes unit in New York will find. (Yes, they are being investigated by NY State. @POTUS cannot “Pardon” a State conviction.) If it is treason, the ultimate punishment would help to deter other would-be despots & dictators before they think that the public will remain complacent and refuse to rise up against tyranny.

    I think you missed a few notable examples of meddling with “democracy” both foreign and domestic:

    1) Failing to investigate the Clintons of corruption before the 1992 election and deciding to “let it ride” until after the election results. Obviously, there would have been no charges had they won.
    2) Failing to investigate the huge influx of cash into the Clinton campaign from Chinese Buddhist monks who swore an oath of poverty.
    3) As a follow-up, failure to investigate the connection between the Governor of Arkansas, Walmart, and granting of “most favorable nation” status to a brutally repressive Chinese regime noted for the massacre at Tienanmen Square.
    4) The connection between International bankers Goldman Sachs and HRC’s 2 versions of national policy
    5) Failing to investigate the connection between a Saudi Prince and 25% of the Clinton campaign fund.
    6) The connection between meeting of Lynch and Bubba Gump was illegal and lend itself to collusion and possible racketeering.

    FYI, John Brennan and Jeh Johnson both stated under oath they had no proof of either collusion with the Russians nor evidence of hacking from Russia.

    PS: Conservatism is the new counter-culture. Pepe was here 😀

    • Liam Holden

      if you really want to dig into the past.em..1992 election etc etc, then lets talk about richard nixon, shall we? based on your line of thinking I find it very easy blaming the republicans going waaay back to Nixon’s era.. yeah thats right, keep digging into the past so that you can hide your flaws in the present. Trump is at best does not respect democracy and is borderline nazi. He must be cursing the US Constitution every single moment of his life.We should really fedex him to Russia.

      • MikeFeldman

        • Liam Holden

          nope … u have got me wrong, neither a democrat nor republican. but I admired Obama’s work not because he was democrat… but as a President! get it?

          • MikeFeldman

            So what? Your side doesn’t have to be Democrat. I don’t have you wrong. There’s nothing to get with you. You’re a nobody.

  • mark w

    And so our Islamist in Chief with CIA, NSA, DHS, FBI, DIA and other organizations would NOT have known about potential hacking long before a candidate from the “other side” ?!?!?!

    Puh-lease !!! If Brennan, Comey and Johnson all state under oath there’s no evidence then even Hussein could only make an educated guess…how on earth could someone without a security clearance possibly know?

    Uh before you say our President knew because he was part of it, just remember that all 3 of the above cannot prove any wrongdoing on either Russia’s nor President Trump’s part.

    • Liam Holden

      you really are ignorant. please visit moscow. While russia is an awesome country and have so many cool people. What people know about Trump is beyond belief. Everyone here knows about the infamous Trump prostitute tapes…go figure. Ever wonder why they haven’t been released?

            I had construction contracts in Russia when you were in diapers. And I don’t mean last week. But please let me in on the latest gossip in Moscow. PS. My sources are quite a bit closer to home plate than FNN.

            OMG, I didn’t realize I was dealing with an old man, sorry Grandpa! But Grandpa you need new specs, its CNN and not FNN. I guess you bought your specs from the Trump store. Don’t worry Grandpa it could’ve happened to anybody. Sleep well now…. shhh shhhh…

          • MikeFeldman

            You really are an idiot. FNN is Fox News Network, same network you referred to as “fox news”. I see you didn’t mention the buzz in Moscow. How long have you been a resident of Fantasyland?

          • Liam Holden

            Just wondering this website IR has been exposing Trump and his lies. And you know what why hasn’t Trump used his executive powers to shut the media. Ever wonder? It plain and clear he knows it will further shorten his presidency. He knows he’s lying and has got caught out many times. Its not like one media is casting him in bad light, its everybody complaining, reporting wrong doings and exposing him. His only saving grace is his status POTUS. To bring him down it will take lots of efforts from the other entities, which is exactly whats happening behind the scenes.

            As far as Moscow, I didn’t mention since you said you have your own reliable sources. LOL. Dude anyone that speaks against Putin and/or his allies and/or his business interests is shot down. You make one mistake and you are dead. Are your reliable sources dead that you dont know what information I know that you don’t?
