And what is exposed, if you go back from it, is that the president and his service were actively involved in working out probably the most significant service deal of Trump’s life in Moscow, consisting of direct negotiations with the Kremlin throughout the president’s campaign, and they were lying about it at the time and they have lied about it considering that and they have actually been taken part in a fancy effort to cover it up. And the time they were secretly negotiating what would have probably been the biggest deal of his life with the Kremlin, at that exact same time, the Kremlin was stepping in, unlawfully, in U.S. politics to help Trump win the election.”
