No collusion? Look at the facts

To the Editor:

Only Trump’s base will fall for the no collusion claim, their minds were made up when the investigation began. Since then we have seen the many contacts with Russians that the Trump team lied about uncovered, including Trump’s own efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow right up to the election, Manifort giving polling data to the Russian troll organization that targeted the Michigan-Wisconsin-Pennsylvania trifecta that won Trump the electoral college by less than 80,000 votes.  We now know that Stone orchestrated the release of the stolen DNC emails with Wikileaks and Guccifer.
We also well remember Trump’s own words that he fired Comey to stop the investigation, Trump’s daily public attacks on the investigation and all of those involved in it, and that Trump’s public request to the Russians to find Hillary’s emails were proven to be the day before the beginning of the Russians attempting to break into the DNC emails.
We know that Trump gave highly classified intel to the Russians in the Oval Office about Israeli spies who had infiltrated ISIS. Mueller was able to single out many of the Russians involved in attacking our election and prove that Don Jr.’s meeting in Trump Tower was about dirt that the Russians supposedly had on Hillary, as well.
We now know that Trump is an illegitimate president installed by Putin to undermine our standing in the world and Americans’ faith in our institutions! BTW, Manifort’s plea deal included that he give up more than $47 million in assets and cash, so that more than paid for the entire investigation and then some!
