We’ve heard some incredibly ridiculous and downright ignorant explanations this week for exactly why Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort agreed to meet with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. Here’s a sampling:
- It was to discuss the adoption of Russian children by American parents. (A blatant lie.)
- It was to obtain “opposition research” on Hillary Clinton. (Veselnitskaya says she brought no such information.)
- Even if it was unethical to hold the meeting, anyone would have done it. (Total bullshit.)
- Maybe it was all a big set-up staged by the Democrats! (Really? That’s the best the Trumpkins can manage to think of?)
But whatever the reason (or reasons), senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway wants us all to know that no one in the whole world takes any of this seriously with the exception of Hillary Clinton.
During an appearance on Fox & Friends on Friday, Conway proudly declared:
“I mean, we were promised systemic, hard evidence of systemic, sustained, furtive collusion that not only interfered with our election process but indeed dictated the electoral outcome. And, one of the only people who says that seriously these days is still Hillary Clinton, and nobody believes it. We know why she lost. It’s obvious.”
Just wondering: Has Conway ever heard of Robert Mueller? Because I’m pretty damn sure he takes all of this quite seriously, as Ms. Conway will discover when she’s hauled in front o a federal grand jury and asked questions while under oath. One lie from her Cryptkeeper lips and a charge of perjury awaits her.
Conway also had the nerve to say this as part of her whinefest on Fox:
“So, again, what kind of money are we going to spend by the taxpayers having these infinite investigations, and there are many of them. If we’re going to do that, fine, I suppose. But we really need to spend our time, also, telling people what’s being done here for them.”
I don’t recall Sewer Rat Barbie Conway complaining as in excess of $7 million was spent on endless Benghazi hearings that wound up proving nothing other than what we already knew about how many Americans perished at the hands of Libyan murderers.
Ms. Conway would be wise to know that millions of us take the Russia matter very seriously and also to study up on American history so she can discover how traitors are dealt with in this country.
