So You Think It Was Hillary Clinton, Not Trump, Who Colluded with Russia. Congrats, You’re an Idiot

With Robert Mueller’s investigation clearly getting closer to finding out the truth about Donald Trump and his campaign’s involvement with Russia during last year’s election, it’s not exactly surprising to see the current “president” and his supporters grasping at straws while trying to create as many distractions as possible.

Though I will say, pushing the idea that Hillary Clinton was the one who colluded with Russia is easily one of the dumbest things I’ve heard from Trump or those who defend him.

So, let me get this straight.

Trump and his supporters are now claiming that Clinton colluded with Russia — against herself? We’re supposed to believe that the DNC and her campaign helped fund payments to Fusion GPS, which then hired Christopher Steele to investigate Trump’s background and possible ties to Russia. At that point the Russian government then helped Steele fabricate lies against the current “president,” all while Russia was doing just about everything it could to help defeat Clinton during last year’s election.

Then even though Steele’s investigation concluded months before the election, Clinton and the DNC decided to never mention his dossier, or any of the information it contains.

Furthermore, to help them “prove” that Clinton was compromised by Russia, they’re bringing up a uranium deal that she had very little influence over (the State Department was one of nine agencies, plus the Canadian government, that had to sign off on the deal) from seven years ago. This deal is linked to conspiracies that have been soundly debunked for quite some time.

If all that sounds confusing, it should, because you’d have to be an idiot to believe any of that.

Ignoring all the noise and distractions Trump’s trying to create, which is exactly what he’s trying to do, the reason why his possible Russia collusion is such a controversy is because:

  • The Russian government was going after his opponent, not him.
  • He’s frequently praised and defended Vladimir Putin, refusing to say anything negative about Russia.
  • Numerous people linked to his campaign have been caught lying about or concealing communication with Russian officials — including his attorney general and eldest son.
  • His second campaign manager, Paul Manafort, has multiple links with pro-Russian groups.
  • Wikileaks, a political tool used by Russia, seemed to time their dumps of Clinton’s emails at times to either hurt her or help create a distraction for him.
  • He encouraged Russia to commit espionage against an American citizen, his political opponent.
  • Almost immediately after his son met with a Russian lawyer promising him dirt on Clinton, Trump promised a big reveal about Clinton and began pushing talking points about her emails.
  • Of everything we know Russia did thus far, the sole beneficiary of the cyber attack and Russia-pushed propaganda was Donald J. Trump.

It makes absolutely no sense — and it’s completely idiotic — for anyone to claim Hillary Clinton was the one “colluding with Russia.” She wasn’t the one defending and praising Russia and Vladimir Putin. She wasn’t the one with associates linked to her campaign getting caught hiding meetings with Russian officials. She wasn’t the one who had her oldest child meeting with a Russian lawyer promising dirt on her political opponent from Russia’s government.

Hillary Clinton wasn’t the one who benefited from the sophisticated cyber attack ordered by Vladimir Putin against our election — Donald Trump did.
