Tim Kaine said that Donald Trump Junior’s meeting with a Russian attorney to get information about Hillary Clinton went beyond obstruction of justice. Kaine called it treason.
“To meet with an adversary to try to get information to hijack democracy, the investigation is now more than just an obstruction of justice investigation, it’s more than just a perjury investigation, it’s a treason investigation,” Kaine said.
But it wasn’t treason or hijacking democracy when the Democratic National Committee hired a former British spy to get the dirt on Donald Trump, and then used a fake dossier to launch surveillance on Trump campaign staffers.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a Trump critic, asked what is probably the most pertinent question about the controversy.
Graham asked, “Why would they send the Trump campaign to a lady who knew nothing?”
He continued, “So, I want to know about that too. It’s kind of an odd way to suggest the Russian government wants to help, by sending you somebody that doesn’t have any evidence at all.”
If the Russian government was truly colluding with the Trump campaign, wouldn’t they have sent someone who had information? Donald Jr. didn’t get any information from the meeting.
Was he being set up by the Clinton campaign, the DNC, and/or the Obama Administration?
Biz Pac Review reports:
After so many whiffs and with something they think at least resembles blood in the proverbial water, Dems are chomping at the bit to take a massive bite out of the Trump Administration. So it was no surprise when drama queen Senator Tim Kaine uttered the “T” word – “treason” – regarding Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and the recent controversy surrounding Donald Trump Jr.
But is the Virginia senator biting off more than he can chew?
