Trump Lies Debunked in The Russia Probe

By: Middle Passage Press
LOS ANGELES - Dec. 10, 2018 - PRLog -- With the convictions of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen and former campaign manager, Paul Manafort for crimes related to Trump operations, the one question that has been upper most in the minds of millions of Americans in the aftermath of Russia's proven meddling in America's 2016 presidential election is: What did Trump know, and when did he know it? In a penetrating hard-hitting, wide ranging look at the events surrounding the scandal, The Russia Probe: What Did Trump Know and When did He Know It? (Middle Passage Press), noted political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson asks and seeks to answer that compelling question.

In the process he examines and debunks the major lies and myths that Trump, Trump administration officials, Trump family members, GOP investigators, and Trump apologists have put forth to the media and the public to make the issue go away. The first question Hutchinson asks is: Was the infamous June 9, 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr. Jared Kushner and Trump campaign officials and Russian operatives to spread campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton? In his chapter, "The Meeting," Hutchinson notes "Donald Trump Jr. gleefully responded, 'if it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer'." The "it" was an email from a known Russian operative offering to do damage to Clinton. Don Jr., later denied it but the evidence has mounted that he lied about that." Hutchinson spells out exactly what that evidence is.

Trump repeatedly asserted he had no business deals in Russia. That is a lie. Hutchinson notes:

"He tried to cut many business deals in Russia and bragged about it. 'We're working with the local government, the mayor of Moscow, and the mayor's people So far, they've been very responsive. I always go into the center'." Hutchinson examines in detail Trump's many real, failed, and much hoped for deals he cut with Russian politician and shady businessmen in and out of Russia.

Then there's the popular notion in many legal circles that Trump, as sitting president, can't be indicted. This is a myth. Says Hutchinson; "The Constitution does not say and the Supreme Court or any court has never ruled that a president can't be indicted: "It is proper, constitutional, and legal for a federal grand jury to indict a sitting president for serious criminal acts that are not part of, and are contrary to, the president's official duties" Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr wrote about a possible Clinton Indictment.

The Russia Probe takes the reader through a point by point look at each of Trump and company's assertions about the Russia investigation and their attempt to duck, dodge and deny complicity and "no collusion." The more blatant include:

*Trump played no part in the firing of Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe

*Trump fully cooperated with and turned over all his financial records to Mueller

*Trump did not plan to run for President in 2014 therefore the Russians could not have a hold on him

*Trump can't be indicted

*Trump did not plan to fire Mueller

*Trump claimed that he'd talk to Mueller

In each case, Hutchinson produces a wealth of evidence to dispel and refute those assertions and much more.  The Russia Probe: What Did Trump Know and When did He Know It? Is one first books to provide readers with an easy to read look at the ins and outs of Russia's meddling in America's election, and the corrosive effect it's had on American politics and a president.
