Donald Trump knew damn well that the Russians hacked our elections, and he invited them into the Oval Office to tell them it was TOTALLY FINE. Yes, this was at the same May 10, 2017, meeting where he told Russian Ambassador Kislyak and Foreign Minister Lavrov, “I just fired the head of the FBI.

And yes, this is one of the conversations White House lawyers stuck in the double-super-secret code word vault to make sure the American public never learned what a filthy traitor their president was. And yes, this shit is all coming out since the White House, which has always leaked like a sieve, is in total meltdown now that Nancy Pelosi has released the impeachment kraken.
The Washington Post reports:
President Trump told two senior Russian officials in a 2017 Oval Office meeting that he was unconcerned about Moscow’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election because the United States did the same in other countries, an assertion that prompted alarmed White House officials to limit access to the remarks to an unusually small number of people, according to three former officials with knowledge of the matter.
These leaks have just begun, and it’s about to get much worse as White House staffers wake up to the prospect of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees to fight congressional subpoenas, particularly since Democrats have said they’ll use Congress’s inherent contempt power to impose fines on witnesses who obstruct the impeachment investigation. And it’s not just Donald Trump in jeopardy here. The “White House lawyers” who set up this classification wheeze to hide Trump’s perfidy and ignorance from the public have to be doing some serious math this weekend. Lookin’ at you, Pat Cipollone! And also …
GOOD MORNING, JOHN EISENBERG! Adam Schiff is about to make you a star!
