The craziness just keeps coming. Now we discover that Donnie, Jr. was in contact with Wikileaks from the Summer of 2016 until the Summer of 2017. Collusion, what collusion?

It's difficult to remember but Trump actually said that there was no contact between his campaign and Russia. WaPo published an article yesterday that listed 30 known contacts, yes 30, from the campaign. That was immediately rendered obsolete when the news broke about Junior's email correspondence with Wikileaks.

Donald Trump Jr. had multiple online conversations during the 2016 presidential campaign with WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy group that last year released a hacked trove of Democrats’ emails, according to four congressional officials.

Mr. Trump, the president’s son, in recent weeks handed over Twitter messages he exchanged with WikiLeaks to several congressional committees investigating Russia’s attempts to disrupt the election, according to the officials. In September, Mr. Trump acknowledged in a closed-door interview with the Senate Judiciary Committee that he had corresponded with the group during the campaign, the officials said.

The correspondence, which began weeks before the Nov. 8, 2016, election and continued through much of this year, is the second time it has been publicly revealed that Mr. Trump communicated with people and organizations with ties to the Russian government who were trying to undermine the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.

On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and a complete narcissistic moron.

Jeff Sessions is a senile old fool so his memory loss is at least plausible. The House Judiciary Committee had a front row seat to that on Tuesday. They will surely understand as will Bob Mueller. He is so old that he was a Segregationist when we used to capitalize the word to describe the people who thought African-Americans and European Americans were two distinct species and should not go to school together, use the same bathrooms, or drink from the same water fountains. Jared Kushner, on the other hand, is barely out of short pants so he has no excuse. Only, he keeps forgetting those pesky Russian contacts. Of course, the explanation is clear. They were so trivial, he just couldn't be bothered. Too bad for him, not everybody agrees.

President Trump’s adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner received and forwarded emails about WikiLeaks and a “Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite” that he kept from Senate Judiciary Committee investigators, according to panel leaders demanding that he produce the missing records.

Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) and ranking member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) sent a letter to Kushner’s lawyer Abbe Lowell on Thursday charging that Kushner has failed to disclose several documents, records and transcripts in response to multiple inquiries from committee investigators.

In the letter, Grassley and Feinstein instruct Kushner’s team to turn over “several documents that are known to exist” because other witnesses in their probe already gave them to investigators. They include a series of “September 2016 email communications to Mr. Kushner concerning WikiLeaks,” which the committee leaders say Kushner then forwarded to another campaign official. Earlier this week, Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. revealed that he had had direct communication with WikiLeaks over private Twitter messages during the campaign.
