Washington Post Today: Trump still says Russia didn't do anything

Nearly a year into his presidency, Trump continues to reject the evidence that Russia
waged an assault on a pillar of American democracy and supported his run for the
White House.

Told that members of his incoming Cabinet had already publicly backed the intelligence report on Russia, Trump shot back, “So what?” Admitting that the Kremlin had hacked Democratic Party emails, he said, was a “trap.”

As Trump addressed journalists on Jan. 11 in the lobby of Trump Tower, he came as close as he ever would to grudging acceptance. “As far as hacking, I think it was Russia,” he said, adding that “we also get hacked by other countries and other people.”

As hedged as those words were, Trump regretted them almost immediately. “It’s not me,” he said to aides afterward. “It wasn’t right.”

"The constant revelations create such a blur that context sometimes is overlooked. Trump and his
operatives have lied repeatedly, denying that they had any contacts with Russians. Now we now
know of at least 19 meetings among 31 interactions."

3. Trump works for Russian oligarchs.

His bank account is all that matters and he has no skills other than sales.

4. Imposible. Sarah Huckabee Sanders has said, he was very tough on Russia.

Would she lie?
