A lawyer for President Trump said there was no illegality in Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting last year with a Russian lawyer. “There’s no illegality in the meeting,” lawyer Jay Sekulow said on Fox News. “Now, the fact is, nothing transpired.” Sekulow said there is a “media frenzy” on Russia. “This has been going on for several months. But when you look to see what actually takes place. A meeting takes place. Nothing happens as a result of this 15 or 20 minute meeting,” he said. “And at the end of the day there’s no illegality.” During an interview Wednesday on NBC’s “Today,” Sekulow was also pressed about whether Trump Jr. had lied about the meeting. “No, he did not,” Sekulow said. His comments come after Trump Jr. on Tuesday released a chain of emails detailing his conversations about setting up a meeting with a Russian lawyer who had offered compromising information on Hillary Clinton. His release of the emails came after a report in The New York Times that said Trump Jr. was told before the meeting with the Russian lawyer that the damaging information on Clinton was part of a Russian government effort to help his father’s presidential campaign.

Well, in its frenzied, mindless, and utterly irrational attack on Donald Trump, the Talking Snake Media is leading gullible, easily duped Americans on the political equivalent of a snipe hunt.

Charges of “collusion,” “conspiracy,” and “treason” are bandied about wildly as if the mere brainless repetition of the words will make the totally imaginary charges stick.

The latest maniacal frenzy is over Donald Trump Jr.’s 20-minute meeting with a lawyer from Russia in June 2016, right after Trump Sr. had secured the GOP nomination. There are numerous problems with the media’s efforts to use this brief encounter to drag Trump and his aides into the swamp and drown them there.

First, the lawyer was not representing the Kremlin. She disclaims any connection to the Kremlin, and the Kremlin says it has no connection to her. In America, at least, this puts the burden of proof on the accusers.

Second, what happened cannot possibly be treason for the simple reason that we are not at war with Russia.

Third, she had no incriminating information about Hillary to share. And it wouldn’t be a crime if she did. “Collusion,” even though it’s a sinister sounding word, is only a crime when it’s part of an effort to commit financial fraud. There simply is no law against receiving opposition research from anybody, even including a representative of a foreign government (which this attorney was not).

And if it is a crime, then Hillary Clinton should already be under lock and key in the nearest federal prison for “colluding” with Ukraine to defeat Trump.

According to Politico – in a January article I’m sure it wishes it could bury in the same swamp they’re trying to drag Trump into – Ukraine is accused of actively colluding with the Clinton campaign to sabotage the Trump campaign.

Feast your eyes on these excerpts (emphasis added):

Donald Trump wasn’t the only presidential candidate whose campaign was boosted by officials of a former Soviet bloc country.

Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.

A Ukrainian-American operative who was consulting for the Democratic National Committee met with top officials in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington in an effort to expose ties between Trump, top campaign aide Paul Manafort and Russia, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation.

The Ukrainian efforts had an impact in the race, helping to force Manafort’s resignation and advancing the narrative that Trump’s campaign was deeply connected to Ukraine’s foe to the east, Russia.

Yet Politico’s investigation found evidence of Ukrainian government involvement in the race that appears to strain diplomatic protocol dictating that governments refrain from engaging in one another’s elections.

In a word, Yikes.

Bottom line: maybe there is an actual snipe to hunt here (there is a real bird called a snipe) – but the name of the bird, it turns out, is Hillary Clinton.
