From the time the very first evidence surfaced of a conspiracy between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia to alter the outcome of the election, numerous members of the Resistance have asserted that Trump’s election was therefore illegitimate. However, even as evidence has continued to gradually pour in, the mainstream media has been hesitant to make that acknowledgment. Now a prominent and respected MSNBC host is finally going there.
Joy Reid is the MSNBC morning weekend host, but on Friday evening she appeared on the Chris Hayes show as a panelist. The discussion centered around the increasing evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia during the election, and that Donald Trump himself knew about it. For instance, former Trump adviser George Papadopoulos has formally confessed that he told several Trump campaign officials in advance of his plan to conspire with the Kremlin to acquire emails stolen from Hillary Clinton. Papadopoulos has also asserted that Trump himself was aware in advance of his plot to arrange a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. (MSNBC)
