What Mueller has already revealed about Trump and Russia


When it comes to Trump and Russia… “Possible ties between the Trump campaign
and Russia.” …it’s easy to feel numb to the details. “George Papadopoulos.” “Roger Stone.” “Cohen has been…” “Paul Manafort.” “Don Jr.” And every time we hear Trump respond: But no matter how many times Trump says this,
here’s what we can’t lose track of: We now have evidence of three major connections
between the Trump campaign and Russia. We know that people working for Trump were
willing to work with Russia to help him. And it’s possible they broke the law to do
so. Here’s how we know. FBI special counsel Robert Mueller has tied
several top Trump officials to Russia. So let’s try to organize them. We can do so with three specific categories. The first is a category we’ll call “shady
connections.” Years before Trump’s 2016 run, his campaign
manager, Paul Manafort, had several problematic connections with Russia. He had worked for Ukraine’s pro-Russian political
faction, making tens of millions of dollars. He owed $10 million to a Russian oligarch
named Oleg Deripaska. And then during the 2016 campaign, he allegedly
gave polling data to a man named Konstantin Kilimnik, who has ties to Russian intelligence. Manafort left the campaign in August 2016. And he is now in prison for laundering 30
million dollars and hiding it from the US government. We can call the second category the “Russian
intel.” During the campaign, several Trump staffers,
including his son, worked with Russians to get dirt on top Democrats. Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner, Trump’s
son-in-law and senior advisor, attended a meeting in Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer
named Natalia Veselnitskaya, who promised “documents and information” from the Russian
government that would reveal dirt on Hillary Clinton. Meanwhile, hackers working for the Russian
government stole emails from the Clinton campaign and other top Democrats. Trump’s foreign policy advisor, George Papadopoulos
heard about these emails and tried to arrange a meeting between Trump and Russian President
Vladimir Putin. Eventually, the hackers gave the emails to
Wikileaks. And Trump’s campaign advisor, Roger Stone,
reached out to Wikileaks to find out more about the hacked emails. Papadopoulos lied to the FBI about the emails
and was sentenced to 14 days in prison. Stone lied to Congress about the emails, and
was arrested. The third and final category is the “Moscow
deal.” While Trump was complimenting Putin on the
campaign trail… “If our country got along with Russia, that
would be a great thing.” “Well he called me a genius. I’m going to disavow it. Are you crazy?” “And I hope he likes me.” … Trump was also negotiating a real estate
deal in Moscow. And the person who negotiated the deal for
Trump was his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. But here’s the important detail: Cohen needed
someone to help grease the wheels. So he emailed Putin’s press secretary: Dmitry
Peskov. The deal didn’t end up going through. But if it had, it would’ve made Trump a lot
of money, which is why Cohen kept Trump updated on these negotiations. But now, Cohen is also going to prison for,
among things, lying to Congress about Russia. So when we zoom out, we can see the three
major connections the Trump campaign had to Russia — while Trump was
running for president. His top campaign official had close ties to
people who worked for or with the Russian government. Several members of his campaign, including
his son, were open to receiving dirt from people — who worked for the Russian government
— to improve Trump’s chances at winning the election. All the while, Trump’s personal lawyer was
trying to close a lucrative deal for Trump in Russia, with the help of a top Putin official. We don’t know how much President Trump knew
about each of these conversations — or whether any of them crossed the line into outright
criminality. But even from what we see here, we can see
that Russia, and ultimately Putin, was willing to help Trump make more money — and win
the White House. And the people working for Trump were open
to Russia’s help. We’ve started this paid membership program called Vox Video Lab. When you sign up you support our journalism. But you also get access to some really cool exclusive content. Kind of behind the scenes of what we work on. So you can join at Vox.com/join. Aaaand thank you.

  1. So… Trump, a businessman, had his people do business with companies and countries. Including Russia. Russian hackers were digging dirt on people, and eventually found some on Hillary, and put it on some website, where anyone can find them. And Trump's people found it. And, from Putin's standpoint, Trump is a businessman, who sometimes does business and invests in Russia. So, naturally, it would benefit him, if Trump prospered. Excuse me, but where's the conspiracy here? It's basic business rules. Hilary's campaign was also sponsored by people, who would profit from this. They didn't treat this as charity. Did they?

  2. Just came by to drop a thumbs down. Vox is actual garbage and no one there seems to give a f*** about learning the truth. F*** you Vox news.

  3. It’s been proven there was no Trump Russia collusion…. Hillary is another story though! She got paid 150 million for setting up that deal that sold RUSSIA 20% of US uranium deposits. For Christ sake the left if so blinded by anti trump rage all facts go out the window

  4. LIAR PUT OBAMAS FACE THERE AND CROOKED HILARY AND THE CRIMINAL CORRUPT DEMOCRATS THERES YOUR RUSSIAN COLLUSION, DECLAS OF FISA WILL PROVE KIT WITH SIGNED DOCUMENTS THAT OBAMA SIGNED ,CLAPPER SIGNED, LYING COMEY SIGNED,MCCABE SIGNED THERE ALL BUSTED.DECLAS OF FISA BRINGS DOWN THE HOUSE AND FAKE LYING NEWS MEDIA FOR GOOD.BYE BYE DEMONRATS AND FAKE LYING NEWS MEDIA GITMO SOON.

  6. I love ur channel. I simply have to scroll thru ur list of videos, fully amused just by the titles. Love ya vox ;P

  7. I love watching these idiots while the real criminal Hillary did colude with russia and sold American Uranium to Russia and no one is looking at the money the Clinton foundation recieved from Russian sources. Talk about stupid people. Lets look at whats not there and ignore what is there.
    Lets look at election tampering. Hillary paid off the DNC to beat Bernie and no one says a word. She stole her party's nomination. Hilary was not favored to win. Bernie was and I don't like the socialist ideolog. Trump was elected fair and square. We did not find people double voting or registering dead people for republicans like we did in Bills election. We did not have anyone plead guilty to federal election tampering like Mr Riati did after Bills term s in office. Oh and after both of Bills elections he was told to pay back illegal campaign contributions. Little to late the damage was done. The democrats have done all of the things they say others have done.

    TIME TO DRAIN THE SWAMP. PROSECUTE, BILL, HILLARY, OBAMA S, CHUCK SCHUMER, ALL INVOLVED IN THE HOUSING MARKET CRASH LIKE BARNEY FRANK AND SCHUMER. THESE CROOKS STOLE ELECTIONS AND AMERICANS RETIREMENTS AND HOMES AND BETRAYED OUR COUNTRY BY SUPPORTING TERRORIST NATIONS THAT ARE BENT ON AMERICA S DESTRUCTION. CLINTONS SELLUNG SUPER COMPUTER TO CHINA AFTER THEY STOLE NUCLEAR SECRETS, SELLIND URANIUM TO RUSSIA, OBSMA SUPPORTING THE MUSLIM BROTHER HOOD AND IRAN WITH BILLIONS AND MAKING TREATY S WITH OUR ENEMY S. TRUMP IS REVERSING ALL THESE DISASTERS. IF YOU ARE AGAINST TRUMP YOU ARE AGAINST AMERICA.

    TRAITORS TRAITORS THE 5TH COLUMN OUR COUNTRY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY. Treason treason.
    Maga maga Maga Maga. Trump Trump Trump.

  8. Funny thing is, nobody is going to be arrested, because money dictates the punishment, not the rules.

  9. Хватит обвинять мою проклятую страну, мы не взломали тебя, блин, выборы

  10. This is such bs…..it was Seth Rich that downloaded DNC not the Russians!! Get your story straight!!

  11. The Trumpturds are a bunch of waggish onion-eyed clotpoles! NOT A BIT EMBARRASSED THEY VOTED FOR A TREASONOUS WSOB!

  12. You haven’t mentioned anything criminally that trump did and none of this actually proves that the election was rigged

  13. So…….Trump got dirt on Democrats and there was a FAILED real estate deal?…………….So nothing. Got it.

  14. No here's what you can't lose track of. You lost fair game. For people who scream the loudest walked away with their tails between their legs. I wonder if these childishness behavior will be present during the next election

  15. That's it?? Impeach trump over this? Trump didnt even imprison hilary. Trump tried to make money in Russia and expose the truth by all means & you wanna impeach him? He is doing an amazing job so far. Stop being vengful & bad losers. This is why they say politicians are the worse kind of people. If trump lost he would have accepted it and not be vengful.

  16. I bet Trump has real estate deals all over the world , so what! The Democrats are going to try anyway possible to take Trump out.

  17. Wow, Trump just admitted he would collude with russia in 2020, and some people believe he didnt collude in 2016

  18. A million russian bots with a million bottles of vodka from putin cant paper over the fact that trump admitted he will collude with russia on tv, obviously because he did it 2016 with no consequences

  19. Все правда. All that is true

  20. Lmao what are you and the rest of y'all moving to Canada oh that's right they have a border you can't

  21. Can we all agree on the following?
    1. Russia did spread misinformation during 2016 election.
    2. Trump and Russia did not work together to effect the 2016 election.
    3. Trump wasn't given an opportunity to conspire with Russia to effect 2016 election.
    4. Comey investigation and Mueller investigation didn't find evidence of conspiracy between Trump and Russia.
    So who is the winner? Russia is the winner!! Russia has achieved their goal of dividing the USA and redirecting USA attention & resources while Russia attempts to effect USA goals in __________. What fits in the blank? Perhaps Syria or South Korea or Venezuela?
    I don't like Russia and I think all USA citizens can agree, also concerned about the division in the USA.

  22. Three major connections eh? Well, from what I can tell, all of these can be explained away by simply saying that Trump knew nothing about them while they were happening.

    Trump knew a guy who knew a Russian.. CONSPIRACY!! The first guy was greedy sure.. but why connect him to Trump? You cant even tell us what the intel was about.. and since when is making money in other countries bad? The deal fell through anyway.. I dont see why its all that important.

  23. Trump is very under pressure with all this broad casting B's with critics citizen news blogs robots

  26. yeah russian hackers acting like the AcTUAL Russian government…the only connection was Clinton and her e-mails to throw shade and revenge

  27. If Russian interferes is so wide spread why wasn't there an investigation into the 2018 election?

    Oh wait Democrats won that election!
