After much of the DNC Media Complex spent all day yesterday crowing about the supposed 'smoking gun' of Cohen's perjury plea & the publication of his emails with Felix Sater, here's @jaketapper:

Here's what happened yesterday, stripped of all the DNC Media Complex spin:

Cohen admitted to Mueller he didn't tell the truth about some emails he sent to longtime FBI informant Felix Sater in which a proposed real estate deal to build a Trump Tower in Russia was discussed.
In those emails between Cohen & Sater discussing the proposed Trump Tower deal in Moscow, Sater is seen making a pitch to Cohen after Trump announced his presidential run that he has big important powerful connections with Russian officials who want to help Trump win the election
As Tapper notes, this is a mere perjury charge.

No evidence has been found that proves that:

1) any deal was struck to actually provide Russian gov't support/aid to the Trump campaign or

2) that any Russian activity influenced the outcome of the 2016 election.
All that's been revealed is an FBI informant while talking to Cohen about a Trump-Tower-In-Moscow deal that never reached the actionable stage ALSO discussed doing a deal where Russian gov't officials tried to help Trump win the election.

Was any actual ACTION ever taken?
Or like the Trump-Tower-In-Moscow deal, did Sater making this offer of Russian help to the Trump campaign in that email go nowhere?

Where's the *evidence* any real live collusion action by Russian gov't officials to aid the Trump campaign actually occurred?
This is what Jake Tapper is asking in the above video clip, and you can see Nadler is caught flat footed and stutters and stumbles trying to answer the question.
We're a year and a half into the Mueller Special Counsel investigation.

He's charged numerous people with PROCESS PERJURY, 1 person with bank/tax fraud & illegal lobbying.
Mueller's still charged NO AMERICAN with engaging in criminal activity for acting with Russians to influence the 2016 election.

DNC Media can spin all it wants that "Those kindo of charges are coming soon! Look out, Don Jr.!".


Despite all their spin.
As I told you yesterday, while DNC Media 'journalists' where waxing rhapsodic over this supposed 'smoking gun' that 'proved' Trump accepted Russian gov't help in the 2016 election & this is how he 'stole' it from The Witch, by Saturday you'll see them all WALKING IT BACK.
The dying DNC Media Complex's narrative is that all these people reaching out to Trump campaign personnel with offers of help from the Russian gov't were genuine.

1) Natalia Veselnitskaya & Rinat Akhmetshin at Trump Tower meeting
2) Prof. Joseph Mifsud in London
3) Felix Sater
In fact, none of these people were working for the Russian gov't or acting on behalf of Russian gov't officials.

NV & RA were FUSION GPS OPERATIVES seeking to entrap Don Jr.
Mifsud is an FBI informant/asset, as is Felix Sater.
During their Crossfire Hurricane counterintelligence operation seeking to entrap the Trump campaign accepting Russian help in the election, Peter Strzok & Lisa Page exchanged text messages about the FBI's use of OCONUS LURES; informants sent to make fake offers of help.
DNC Media Complex wants to keep PRETENDING this didn't happen, that the FBI wasn't sending operatives to Trump campaign personnel making bogus offers of Russian help. It wants to keep pretending each offer of Russian aid is real and 100% genuine be made by real Russian agents.
But it DID happen. And there was more than ONE of these OCONUS LURES being prepped and sent to the Trump campaign to make these fake offers of Russian gov't officials all eager to help Trump win the election.
So no matter WHAT the DNC Media Complex tells you, calling a wild, hairy-assed conspiracy theory, it *is* a completely LEGITIMATE question to ask if Felix Sater was one of the OCONUS LURES sent to the Trump campaign to make 1 of these fake Russian offers.
And it must be hammered home: fake offers or genuine offers, there's still no EVIDENCE Cohen or any Trump campaign person ever accepted a deal and ACTION was ever taken by Russians on behalf of the Trump campaign.

Or that any such hypothetical action influenced the 2016 win.
So there you have it.
