New reports highlight evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence using a longtime GOP operative as a knowing and willing intermediary.
The Trump Russia investigation’s smoke turned into fire this week as the Wall Street Journal broke the bombshell story based on detailed, email and first-hand source interviews.
General Flynn and his company the Flynn Intel Group — run by his son, the #pizzagate conspiracy theorist Matt Flynn — appeared to be the main link between the operative and the campaign.
Peter W. Smith, a longtime GOP operative, and anti-Clinton researcher tried to broker a deal with people he believed were agents of Russian intelligence on behalf of the Trump Campaign.
Smith launched a Delaware shell company in September 2016 to house his new anti-Clinton operation and emails reviewed by the Journal show that he worked with Gen. Flynn and his son during the campaign.
