Republican strategist Rick Tyler said the publicly available evidence was clear — the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the election.
The former communications director for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Donald Trump Jr. had essentially admitted to collusion by releasing his emails setting up a meeting with a Russian lawyer offering damaging information against Hillary Clinton.
“They were looking for opposition research from a foreign government who doesn’t have America’s interest in mind,” Tyler said. “They were willing to coordinate with that group, they all knew it, that’s collusion.”
Collusion in itself is not a crime, but Tyler said special counsel Robert Mueller must determine whether their actions broke any U.S. laws.
“Now whether it meets definition of conspiracy or broke any particular laws, that’s a different question,” Tyler said.
But he said the collusion question was clearly settled.
“They colluded with the Russians — that’s clear,” Tyler said.
The Trump team has insisted their actions are commonplace in the political world, but Tyler said that’s simply not true.
“There’s collusion with the Trump campaign with the Russians, that was clear,” he said. “Whether it amounted to anything has not been proven. They were willing to meet with Russian operatives to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. I reject the notion that, the idea — we are all using political world opposition research and opposition research people base their reputation on providing accurate information.”
Trump hit with a brutal and hilarious backlash for hypocritically whining about Dem congresswomen using swear words
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump once again took to Twitter to rant about the "Squad" of Democratic congresswomen of color who he previously suggested should leave the country. This time, he complained, among other things, that they use obscene language:
.....shouting of the F...word, among many other terrible things, and the petrified Dems run for the hills. Why isn’t the House voting to rebuke the filthy and hate laced things they have said? Because they are the Radical Left, and the Democrats are afraid to take them on. Sad!
Trump scrambles to stop GOP from voting on House resolution calling him racist: ‘Republicans should not show weakness!’
President Donald Trump begged House Republicans not to join Democrats in condemning him for racist tweets against four congresswomen -- and stepped up his attacks on the first-year lawmakers.
House Democrats plan to vote Tuesday on a formal condemnation of the president for repeatedly telling the quartet of lawmakers to go back to their home countries, although only one was not born in the U.S. and has become an American citizen.
"Those Tweets were NOT Racist," Trump insisted. "I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show 'weakness' and fall into their trap."
Trump is ‘devoted to racial arson’ — and that’s why he took ‘a massive dump on the American dream’: Rick Wilson
Republican strategist Rick Wilson has penned a scathing column for the Daily Beast in which he dismantles President Donald Trump for telling four Democratic women of color to "go back" to their countries of origin, even though three of them were born in the United States.
Wilson begins his column by arguing that Trump has shown what happens when someone who is "devoted to political and racial arson" and is "beyond shame, reason, and dignity" gets elected to the most powerful office in the United States.
