Trump-Russia collusion is a Bribery case—Bribery being one of the two enumerated impeachable offenses in the Constitution. Russia bribed Trump for a Russia policy that offered trillions in benefits to Russia and *harmed* US interests. The Bribery was achieved by Money Laundering.
2/ Those core crimes were in 2016-8 augmented by others, like Wire Fraud, Bank Fraud, Solicition of Illegal Foreign Donations, Aiding and Abetting Computer Crimes (after the fact), Obstruction of Justice, Perjury, Witness Tampering, Making False Statements, and Lying to Congress.
3/ Some of the funds came to Trump at the Trump Organization, some to Kushner at Kushner Companies. A host of Trump aides (10+) participated in the fraud, solicitation, obstruction, and various forms of lying. Others (e.g. Bannon, Stone) were involved on the computer crimes side.
4/ Our media and political environments make discussing the Trump-Russia case responsibly almost impossible. The truth: like any highly complex conspiracy, it takes hundreds or thousands of pages to lay out in a detailed, comprehensive, professional manner. Soundbites don't work.
5/ Because the media doesn't want to seem biased, and because politicians don't want to seem radical, they bend over backwards to treat Trump and his aides more favorably than any group of common criminals would ever be treated. The standard of proof gets *raised* substantially.
6/ The result: anyone who tries to apply the same standards to the Trump-Russia case that would be applied to the average American is treated as a radical. The good news is that the one person who won't make this mistake is Robert Mueller. He takes his job as a lawman seriously.
7/ Many Americans wrongly presume the president can't be impeached because they look at the composition of the Senate now, and consider the 10% of the total available evidence against Trump they can remember, and put those two irrelevant items together to draw a wrong conclusion.
8/ In fact, the only thing that matters is the TOTALITY OF THE EVIDENCE AGAINST TRUMP that will be offered to the House of Representatives—and then the Senate—at some unknown future date. The average American has access to/recall for about 5% of that totality at any given moment.
9/ I wrote PROOF OF COLLUSION so every American could enter 2019 with the maximum amount of information about the evidence that will be presented against Trump in Congress in the coming year. 2019 will be a year that Americans discuss for centuries—we all must be prepared for it.
10/ PROOF OF COLLUSION comes out Tuesday. It's not a beach read; it's not a tell-all; it's not a flaccid faux drama with made-up scenes and conversations. It's a *report* on *actual events* in anticipation of the greatest trial in American history. It aims to prepare a citizenry.
CONCLUSION/ I hope readers will keep all this in mind when I ask for help retweeting news of PROOF OF COLLUSION's release. I wrote this book to curate the work of others. I consider the book mission-critical for all of us not because I wrote it but because of the facts inside it.
