List of evidence that Trump is a Russian asset.

I want a succinct way to reply to people who insist on saying that there’s ‘no evidence’ that Trump is acting on behalf of Russia.

Here’s what I have so far:
Helsinki. Secret meetings with Putin. Lifting sanctions on Deripaska. Spouting obscure Russian propaganda (Montenegro, Russian invasion of Afghanistan). Lying about Trump Tower Moscow. Taking a planted question from the Russian spy, Maria Butina. Being the first American leader to attack NATO. Manafort.

  1. There was also the time that he publicly asked Russia to hack and release Hillary Clinton’s emails.

    Also, his campaign manager is currently in prison — was handing over polling data to Kilimnik.

  2. The people who’ll tell you there’s “no evidence” won’t accept any amount of actual evidence you provide. They’re fully invested in their babyemperor and will refuse any amount of contrary rationality. They likely also will tell you there’s “no evidence” of global warming, but will happily believe in an invisible deity without evidence.

    IE don’t sweat it.

  3. Kushner seeking a backchannel with Russia. Everyone in Trump’s orbit lying about recent interactions they’ve had with Russia-linked operatives (What’s the number up to? Over 100 instances?). Trump meeting with Lavrov the day after firing Comey and saying he fired Comey specifically to thwart the Russia investigation. Feeding Russia sensitive intel during that meeting. “I love it, especially later in the summer.” Etc, etc.

  4. You forgot the biggest one…laundering money for corrupt russin oligarchs and in turm, for putin. They have him kompromised on this and other issues, which is why everything Turnip does is bad for Americans, but benefits russia by diminishing our influence and world standing.

  5. Also, something beyond the Russia issue: Trump committed a crime by directing Michael Cohen to break the law in his illegal bribes to Karen McDougal and Stephanie Clifford.

    If he weren’t president, he would already be indicted for this.

  6. You are trying to come up with a plan based on facts and reason to get through to people that never used facts or reasoning to get to the place they are comfortable with or the beliefs they have, good luck with that.

  7. This [was reported](https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/trump-has-concealed-details-of-his-face-to-face-encounters-with-putin-from-senior-officials-in-administration/2019/01/12/65f6686c-1434-11e9-b6ad-9cfd62dbb0a8_story.html?utm_term=.d284cea0dec1) yesterday:

    >President Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Russian President Vladi­mir Putin, including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials, current and former U.S. officials said.

    >Trump did so after a meeting with Putin in 2017 in Hamburg that was also attended by then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. U.S. officials learned of Trump’s actions when a White House adviser and a senior State Department official sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout shared by Tillerson.

    >The constraints that Trump imposed are part of a broader pattern by the president of shielding his communications with Putin from public scrutiny and preventing even high-ranking officials in his own administration from fully knowing what he has told one of the United States’ main adversaries.

    >As a result, U.S. officials said there is no detailed record, even in classified files, of Trump’s face-to-face interactions with the Russian leader at five locations over the past two years. Such a gap would be unusual in any presidency, let alone one that Russia sought to install through what U.S. intelligence agencies have described as an unprecedented campaign of election interference.

    It could be argued that this isn’t a smoking gun and that we’d need to have recordings of the conversations for this to be a smoking gun. The fact that there is “no detailed record, even in classified files, of Trump’s face-to-face interactions” with Putin though is a smoking gun itself, because the omissions are the exception not the rule.

    No other face to face between Trump and other world leaders.
    No other President with similar omissions.
    Just Trump, and when he’s with Putin.
