A “nothing-burger” is how White House aides have dismissed the revelation that Trump has likely colluded with Russia in its attempt to influence the 2016 presidential election. But like so much that emanates from the Trump White House, it really is the biggest, fattest, most heart-attack-rendering ‘burger’ ever cooked up.
It turns out e-mail trails can look just as bad for people named Trump as for people named Clinton. Donald Trump Jr.’s “I love it” e-mail chain salivating over a promise last June of “very high level and sensitive information” from an alleged Kremlin attorney incriminating Hillary Clinton — pitched as “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump” — is the latest brick in a mounting wall of evidence that President Trump’s campaign not only knew about but welcomed Russian dark arts in the service of his election.
With team Trump, it is always look over there, there is nothing over here. The Trump administration is no more that a fat mess of cheating burger eaters.
