Last night I wrote that evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia was likely to break soon, based on the fact that everyone from Donald Trump to Sean Hannity was suddenly admitting to that collusion, and trying to spin it as having been some kind of patriotic thing (link). This was even as Russia had just yanked its Ambassador who had been masterminding that collusion all along, in order to get him off the table before the news broke. But today Trump jumped the gun further and began talking about tapes of the Trump campaign colluding with Russia.
Here’s what Donald Trump tweeted today: “The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling. With 4 months looking at Russia under a magnifying glass, they have zero “tapes” of T people colluding. There is no collusion & no obstruction. I should be given apology!” (link). In other words, he knows there are tapes, he knows they’re going to leak eventually – in his haste to counter those tapes, he just admitted there are tapes.
