Donald Trump should go ahead and resign because Keith Olbermann just connected the dots on Trump’s collusion with Russia.
Trump has been desperate to kill the Russia investigation ever since he took office in January. He even fired FBI Director James Comey in an effort to derail it, which is obstruction of justice.
Several members of Trump’s team also met with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign, including Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, and Jeff Sessions. Now we can add Donald Trump Jr. to the list.
As it turns out, Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer who promised to get him information on Hillary Clinton.
Trump’s team is busy trying to downplay the meeting, but Keith Olbermann made their Monday even more difficult by using Trump’s own Twitter account as evidence that he may have known about his son’s meeting all along, despite denying that he had any knowledge of it.
Just after Trump Jr. met with the Russian lawyer and received a promise of information on Hillary, Trump posted his first tweet about Hillary’s emails.

Later that same month, Trump would go on to publicly urge Russian hackers to keep attacking Clinton and the DNC.
“I will tell you this, Russia: If you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump said on July 27th while in Florida. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”
Here’s the video via YouTube.
Donald Trump knew his son met with the Russians. He knew members of his team were meeting with the Russians. And he personally benefited from these meetings because Russia interfered with the 2016 Election by attacking our democratic institutions on his behalf and on his own request.
This is what collusion looks like and Donald Trump should not only be impeached for it, he should be thrown in prison for it.
