Earlier this week Michael Flynn, Trump’s former National Security Adviser, cut a plea deal to testify against top U.S. officials in the Russia investigation. Now, Flynn’s Deputy National Security Adviser got caught admitting that she knew Russia rigged the election in Trump’s favor and her confession is even in writing.
Toward the end of 2016, Obama was dealing with the sanctions on Russia and the Trump transition team was illegally trying to sabotage them from within. KT McFarland – who eventually became Deputy National Security Adviser for Trump – clearly admitted in an email that Russia had “just thrown the U.S.A. election to [Trump]”.
The New York Times has this admission that McFarland knew and then went on to become the Deputy Deputy National Security Adviser for the Trump White House in their latest report. This is proof she and several others are guilty of misprision of a felony.
As soon as a White House lawyer caught wind of the story release, they immediately said that she meant only that the Democrats were portraying it that way. The Times reported further:
But it is evident from the emails — which were obtained from someone who had access to transition team communications — that after learning that President Barack Obama would expel 35 Russian diplomats, the Trump team quickly strategized about how to reassure Russia. The Trump advisers feared that a cycle of retaliation between the United States and Russia would keep the spotlight on Moscow’s election meddling, tarnishing Mr. Trump’s victory and potentially hobbling his presidency from the start.
As part of the outreach, Ms. McFarland wrote, Mr. Flynn would be speaking with the Russian ambassador, Mr. Kislyak, hours after Mr. Obama’s sanctions were announced.
“Key will be Russia’s response over the next few days,” Ms. McFarland later said in another email to another transition official, Thomas P. Bossert, now the president’s homeland security adviser.
The Trump campaign was very much aware of the role Russia was playing in the election. It’s top advisers apparently even discussed it amongst themselves. They were clearly all involved, although McFarland was apparently the only one who put it in writing. She clearly revealed she knew the election was rigged and now it has come back to bite her.
