Nearly entirely forgotten: Trump's phone call with Putin just days after his call to Zelensky

It was on July 31, 2019. Supposedly it was about “wildfires” in Siberia, but they didn’t say anything more than that.


Trump’s “perfect call” to President Zelensky was on July 25, 2019.

5. Occam's razor

The simplest explanation is usually the best one.

As in, Trump's behavior, actions, deeds and words all point to collusion with Putin. Is there any doubt at this point?

7. Good reminder.

It also can't be said enough times that the ONLY change the Trump campaign wanted in the 2016 Republican Party platform was to their position on Ukraine.


The Trump campaign went out of its way to dramatically alter the Republican Party’s official position on Ukraine—against the wishes of GOP hawks and despite senior Trump aide Paul Manafort’s insistence that they weren’t involved.

The move, first reported by The Washington Post, alienated Republicans who have made up the party’s foreign policy base for decades, and indicates that the Trump campaign has a particular interest in Ukraine, where Manafort had previously worked for a pro-Putin leader.

Manafort said on NBC’s Meet the Press this past weekend that the change in language on Ukraine “absolutely did not come from the Trump campaign.”

But this account is contradicted by four sources in the room, both for and against the language.

8. Rump didn't GAF if the entire western US burned in wildfires

yet he was all concerned about Siberia? Pathetic as a lie - even more so if true (hint: not true).
