Leaked Email Proves Trump Officials Aware Russia Had ‘Thrown The USA Election’ To Trump

Donald Trump’s current deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland, a former Fox News personality, K. T. McFarland admitted in an email to a colleague during the 2016 presidential transition to Russia throwing the election to Trump. The leaked email was written just weeks before Trump’s inauguration and it states that sanctions would make it difficult to ease relations with Russia, “which has just thrown the U.S.A. election to him.”

The New York Times reports:

But emails among top transition officials, provided or described to The New York Times, suggest that Mr. Flynn was far from a rogue actor. In fact, the emails, coupled with interviews and court documents filed on Friday, showed that Mr. Flynn was in close touch with other senior members of the Trump transition team both before and after he spoke with the Russian ambassador, Sergey I. Kislyak, about American sanctions against Russia.

A White House lawyer tried to explain McFarland’s email to the The Times by saying that she was referring to the Democrats’ portrayal of the election. That doesn’t make any sense, by the way.

McFarland wrote the email to Thomas P. Bossert, who currently serves as Trump’s homeland security adviser, then he forwarded it to future National Security Advisor Michael Flynn (now indicted), future Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, future senior strategist Stephen Bannon, and future press secretary Sean Spicer, the Daily Beast reports.

With all the pearl-clutching we witnessed from conservatives about Hillary Clinton’s emails, you’d think they wouldn’t be sending messages about Russia throwing the election to Trump.

This past March, John Oliver, the host of the HBO comedy show Last Week Tonight started a segment called “Stupid Watergate,” which he described as “a scandal with all the potential ramifications of Watergate, but where everyone involved is stupid and bad at everything.”

Nailed it!
