If the Trump / Russia investigation is just fake news, why are they spending so much time throwing each other under thus bus to avoid being implicated? Because that certainly does not appear to be the actions of innocent people. Trump is rambling and raging incoherently on Twitter against Sessions, one of his strongest supporters. Don Jr. and Kushner are busy throwing each other under the bus. So, this is good times for us in the Topple Trump coalition! However, no rest for the weary. Our task is to throw as much political dynamite into this corrupt mess as possible, causing them all to turn on each other even more in shrieking paranoia and fear.
Trump goes after Sessions, something Republican senators will be watching, considering Sessions used to be one of them.
But now even some of Trumpworld’s oldest loyalists are feeling the tire marks. Jeff Sessions, for instance, made the grave mistake of following appropriate legal ethics procedures by recusing himself from an investigation into the Trump campaign, of which he was an active part. This simply would not do, and as Seth Meyers highlighted Thursday night, the president just gave him a little shove into traffic:
Kushner throws Don Jr. under the bus after Don Jr. threw Kushner under the bus.
But whatever the truth turns out to be on those fronts, what Kushner’s statement does not do is contest any of the known facts about that meeting — known facts that are deeply problematic for Trump Jr. and even for Trump himself. The meeting, at a minimum, shows that Trump Jr. was eager to collude with the Russian government, which, he had been told, was trying to get his father elected president. Kushner’s statement denies any collusion on his own part, and claims no awareness of any other collusion.
