“Collusion ain’t a crime,” says Gregg Jarrett as he sorts out what are emotion-based and uninformed responses and assumptions being made regarding the meeting that took place in which Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort engaged with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower.
This latest effort by the smear merchants of the left to take down President Trump has them gnawing furiously at the report that a meeting took place which by all appearances violated no laws. Jarrett is asked about RINO Senator Susan Collins calling for the Senate Intel Committee to interview Donald Trump Jr..
He replies, “good lawyers will tell their clients, ‘If you have nothing to hide, don’t hide,’ so answer the questions. And so far he has a perfectly legal and reasonable explanation. It’s not a crime to meet with a Russian official nor Russian lawyer.”
Jarrett point outs, “Now, if the lawyer had said during the conversation, ‘Here is information that we hacked from the Democrat National Committee and Hillary Clinton, and you accept that information and use it, then yes, you are essentially trafficking in stolen information.
Julie Banderas asks if the meeting is “evidence of collusion with the Russians because, you know, a lot of people are going to, of course, jump all over that. Jarrett replies, “Obviously it depends on what’s said but let’s not forget that there is no criminal statute that makes it against the law to collude in a political campaign.”
He explains, “Collusion is sort of an incriminating word only because it’s a crime in price-fixing and anti-competitive, anti-trust behavior. That’s the only crime of collusion. Now maybe it should be a crime and after all of this perhaps Congress will pass a law saying, ‘You can’t coordinate or act in concert with a foreign government or somebody connected with it.’ But so far, collusion ain’t a crime.”
