Adam Schiff masterfully connects the dots between Trump and Russia and its damning

Source: Raw Story

Schiff went through a timeline of events that linked Trump campaign officials such as former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn and former campaign manager Paul Manafort to Russian government officials.

Furthermore, Schiff showed how members of the Trump campaign lobbied to change the Republican Party’s platform to delete a section that endorsed sending weapons to Ukraine — a change that was highly beneficial to the Russian government.

“The Republican Party delegate who offered the language in support of providing defensive weapons to Ukraine states that it was removed at the insistence of the Trump campaign,” Schiff explained.

Additionally, he outlined the way that Russian intelligence services meticulously leaked information damaging to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign designed to do maximum political damage and undermine her candidacy.

Schiff concluded by saying that all of these contacts with Russian officials could be a coincidence — but he said that there’s enough smoke to demand a thorough investigation.

3. Interesting that he mentions Russia wanted NATO allies to be asked to 'pay more'.

Which Trump did just days ago.

Whoever got him to do this is definitely on the Russian payroll. I suspect it's part of the payoff for the commission on the sale of part of Rosneft that Page was going to get. A 19% interest is Rosneft could be worth $25 billion, and that commission would be in the millions. So Page is getting the commission on the sale, and Tillerson is buying the 19% stake, and both are lobbying for sanctions to be reduced and NATO to pay more.

Unbelievable.

7. If there really is a GS vid somewhere ... does anyone think for ONE SECOND ...

It's not showing Trump DOING the peeing?

C'mon now.

Think about his personality ... makes zero sense that he'd want to be the humiliated reciPEE-int.

Conversely, it's very easy to see it the other way round.

6. And Devin Nunes desperately tries to enter remarks in the record to minimize the damage.

It's been almost comical to listen to him. Oh MAN is he peddling furiously with his little legs and little feet!

Btw - right now, Congressman Denny Heck, (D-WA) is doing some pretty great enter-into-the-record business, too. Including - NO, THIS IS NOT SOME PARTISAN SNIVELING BECAUSE WE DIDN'T WIN.

Good for him! "What we've seen is damning evidence today about what Russia did... and how they did it." And he's added the whole "plausible deniability" thing. I think I'm in LOVE!

He's giving a summary - also into the record - about what-all we've seen and heard and learned today. EXCELLENT!

9. A THOROUGH AND INDEPENDENT, BI-PARTISAN INVESTIGATION...

...Time for a SPECIAL INVESTIGATOR and perhaps, a SPECIAL PROSECUTOR!
