Amid speculation and allegations of collusion between Russian election interference and the Trump campaign, there are still a ton of major unanswered questions. And, in these divided times, sometimes its best to focus on things we all can agree on as facts. So in the interest of uniting both political sides, here are some facts presented without commentary:
On June 7, 2016 at 5:16, Donald Trump Jr. confirmed via email a meeting with Russian lawyer in which he was promised dirt on the Hillary Clinton.
Four hours later, at 9:13 that very night, then candidate Donald Trump took time out from a campaign victory speech to promise a “major Hillary speech” to be delivered “probably Monday of next week, before adding “and we are going to be discussing all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons.”
The public ridicule of candidate Clinton was an oft-repeated message by Trump in 2016 so this could easily be a coincidence. But others eager to see a larger conspiracy will surely think there at least some circumstantial evidence in this coincidence which may even lead to raised eyebrows.
This was originally pointed out by Twitter info-machine Yashar Ali, who deserves all the credit on this one, we are simply amplifying his astute observation.
