The evidence proving the Trump campaign team colluded with Russian officials leading up to the 2016 election is stacking up to insurmountable heights for the Trump administration. A fresh report by The New York Times just added more fuel to the fire.
According to the New York Times, Donald Trump’s former deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland sent an email to a close friend suggesting that Russia threw “the U.S.A. election to him.” McFarland left her post in May and is now awaiting confirmation to be Trump’s ambassador to Singapore.
McFarland’s email focused on the move former President Obama had made just before leaving office against Russia over meddling in the U.S. election. McFarland told her friend that Obama created a new obstacle for Trump to better relations with Russia “which has just thrown the U.S.A. election to him.”
White House lawyers are already spinning the email to say that it had nothing to do with Russia helping Trump win the election and had everything to do with the Democrats’ depiction of the election.
The Obama-ordered sanctions forced Russia to remove 35 Russian “diplomats” from the U.S. just weeks before Obama exited the White House.
The news couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Trump administration following Michael Flynn’s guilty plea.
