Updated Version Of Motive For June 9, 2016 Meeting Between Trump Team And Russian Lawyer

If it were not such a violation of our democratic election process, if it had not led to the abomination that now resides in the White House, if it were not such a threat to our very form of government and our freedoms, I would find this whole situation ridiculous and laughable. But I cannot laugh. I refer, of course, to the latest chapter in the Russia-Trump saga that I have long been referring to as a tangled web. Now more spiders have joined in the web-spinning, and still I believe there is more to come. Trump, his minions, and his children conspired to steal the 2016 presidential election, and now we are left to try to clean up the mess and pick up the pieces. As I knew she would be, blogger-friend Gronda is on top of the latest … please take a few minutes to read her latest post about the collusion that led to the defilement and destruction of the office of president. Many thanks, Gronda, for all your hard work and for permission to share!

Jonathan Lemire of the AP published a report on June 9, 2016 which included information that a Manhattan meeting at Trump Tower had kicked off the Trump Victory Fund, the joint cash-raising operation with the RNC that was planned to gather money both for his candidacy and for House and Senate GOP candidates. This means that while his son Donald Jr. was holding a meeting at Trump Towers with the Russian lawyer / Kremlin operative, President Trump was nearby. Both events occurred on a Thursday, June 9, 2016 and a few days after he had cinched the republican nomination. 

Based on the AP report, it appears that Paul  Manafort was heavily involved with setting up the fund raising meeting. But he was also present at he 6/9/16 meeting that was attended by Donald Trump Jr., Jared kushner and that Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya.

  1. It’s as good a passion as any other and you seem to have worked out a very balanced lifestyle. I’m sure you spark off thought in many who read your stuff so keep plugging away. I’m 75 and have been retired for 14 years ; we live in a small bungalow on the southern coast of England , so I have a little browsing time. As for truth well I’m a bit like Pilate ‘ What is Truth?’

    • That is my goal … to get people to think. Too many these days are too lazy to read much, don’t care to do their own research on issues, and are easily swayed by personalities, such as Trump and others. Humanity seems to be shoved aside in favour of greed.

      Your small bungalow on the coast of England sounds idyllic! I have another reader who lives on a boat off the coast of England, very self-sufficient and very happy. Most of us, myself included, have too much detritus cluttering our lives.

      Thanks for reading and for your thoughtful comments!


    • They say he is ‘fuming’, but I suspect his lawyers and advisors are telling him to shut up. They may have even taken his twitting machine away! 😀 Enjoy the silence, for I am sure it will not last long!


    • Thanks Roger! Not sure if I consider myself much of a patriot these days, but I keep fighting with the few weapons I have. I was/am thankful that Gronda took the ball and ran with it on this one, for I haven’t the energy for all the plot twists and turns, all the silken strands of this web of intrigue.

      • Yes these webs involve the whole globe and they always have . Not good way to spend all your time when there’s good music and books galore to read. It’s addictive stuff and will blot out everything else if we are not very cautious. Mr Trump has a brutal motto ‘ all is fair in love , war , and politics’ and he believes all sides will stop at nothing to get to the top. So anything that gets in his way is simply competition to be stamped on if possible. Truth is a malleable concept to be used as ammunition when needed.

        • Well … you make some interesting points. And yes, for most, researching, reading, writing and opining on the current political environment not only in the U.S. but around the globe, would not be a desirable nor healthy way to spend 10-12 hours a day. But for me … it is what I do. It is my passion, and while it does sometimes take a toll, I could not do otherwise. Note, however, that I do listen to beautiful music, walk 4 miles a day, and read for pleasure every day. So, while it isn’t for everyone, I am quite content with what I do. I like to think that every now and then I make somebody stop and think. That is all I ask.

          Yes, Trump is a narcissist who will step on anyone, even his own family, to get his way. He also has an extremely fragile ego that must be fed massive amounts of praise on a daily basis. That is a terrible and dangerous persona for any world leader, and frankly comparable to Kim Jong-un or North Korea. This is why I believe Trump must be ousted. Frankly, he is leading himself down that path without much help from anybody else.

          As to truth being a malleable concept … I assume you meant for Trump, in which case, I am uncertain if he even knows the difference between truth and falsehood. But if you meant that as a broader statement, then I would have to disagree. But that is a discussion for some other time.
