Donald Trump has had a run for president, and presidency filled with scandals, but by far the biggest one is the alleged Trump-Russia collusion during the 2016 campaign. Of course, Trump has called it fake and with no real evidence, however, the investigation carried out by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is still going and as time passes our concerns begin to take shape, as many pieces of incriminating evidence seem to pop up every now and then.
Trump believed Russian president Vladimir Putin when he said that Russia didn’t influence the election in any way but many members of Congress admitted it, as well as lawmakers, and Trump possibly knows that they did, but in order to avoid the anger of his puppeteer, he continues to state that the whole ordeal is phony.
Luckily for us, another government official admitted that Russia meddled with the 2016 presidential election. This official is U.S. Ambassador in Russia Jon Huntsman and that he threatened that the relations between Russia and the United States could end altogether if Russia interferes in the 2018 mid-term elections. These remarks were made in a meeting with lawmakers from both sides of the Congress.
This strikes a big blow to Trump’s administration who has been trying to popularize this narrative that the whole Trump-Russia situation is a lie because a U.S. government official who is very close to Russia went public regarding the collusion and this makes it even harder now for Trump to hide behind his forced rhetoric of fake news that Huntsman is no longer advocating for.
