Was Trump Set Up by the Russians?

 

Something has been bothering me for a while now with the “whole Trump Rursia thing” (as Trump himself so eloquently put it).  I think there’s a completely different way to look at this, where the Russians are more deeply involved in a type of double plot. Consider this:

Trump did collude.  Or his campaign did, without his knowledge (wink, wink).  Its pretty obvious by now there were/are dealings with Russia(ns), either at the oligarchic level or governmental level.  I don’t even have to add any sites or sources here — the trail is obvious and out there for everyone to see.

However, I believe they (the Russians, whoever they are) weren’t only out to get the United States in thier operations, but also Trump and anyone around him.  I don’t know the reason they want Trump to fail/crash and burn — except that it means America’s political system is thrown into upheaval (which it currently is).  But, what struck me as evidence this is so, is the emails Donald Trump Jr. publish regarding the June 2016 meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and others.  The language specifically bothers me.  Let’s start from the very first email:

Good morning

Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting.

The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.

This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump – helped along by Aras and Emin.

What do you think is the best way to handle this information and would you be able to speak to Emin about it directly?

I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first.

Best

The first line is innocuous enough — nothing special, but the second and third lines are packed with language that screams set up!

Let’s suppose you wanted to provide data, illegally gained, via cyber warfare tactics, to one candidate in a political race that could destroy the opponent.  How would go about disseminating that data or even letting your “side” know you have said data?

Would you:

a) send a very obtainable unencrypted email?
b) state exactly the nature of the data you have?
c) state exactly where that data came from?
d) state why you were providing that data?
e) all of the above?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re doing it wrong or you’re doing it right if you really want to leave very OBVIOUS and GLARING evidence of collusion. It’s the perfect set up language — key words are glaring and repeated.  Notice how Rub uses the words “Russian”, “Moscow” repeatedly, without really needing to in the context.  Coupled with reitertating the information is about Hillary Clinton the emails appears like a desperate attempt to ensure that as much incriminating information is inserted into the emails as possible.

If the Russian espionage apparatus didn’t want to get caught providing this data, then why send notification of it via email?  Why the paper trail?  If they didn’t want the Trumps to look like they were doing colluding (help the Trumps cover it up) why the details about: who, what, when, where, why, and how?

Unless!!! That’s the exactly the point.   It appears the operatives didn’t just want to get Trump into office but wanted him in office so he could tear things up due to his incompetence while Russian operative attempt to control him, until the evidence is uncovered and the jig is up.  At which point, you’ve not only damage American Democracy, you destroyed someone who potentially (it’s always money though) owes you money or ripped off someone in a powerful position and there’s really nothing that will be done about.

This may be reading too much into those emails, but the language is either: poorly worded and the product of some really sloppy people, or prefectly worded to set up some not-so-bright newbie political operatives.
