Trump Back Pedals After Email Collusion

The Republican Presidential candidate Donald J Trump tried to back pedal on some of the collusion and illegal statements he made this week regarding national security and email security. His major line of reasoning was that he believed that they were made in jest, and were not to be taken seriously, if only he admitted that is how all statements that leave his mouth should be viewed. Among other things, Trump suggested that Russian central intelligence services should look for more than 30,000 deleted emails belonging to former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and reveal them to the world. The Donald Sayith, “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’ll be able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing, I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.” This in many respects was seen as incentive’s acts against the United States of American, which if committed by one of its own citizens would constitute acts of treason.

So for the Trump campaign this is damage control number one, and people aren’t really going forget it. “In general, I believe that the Russia related allegations floating around are completely inadequate and inappropriate,” said Yuri Melnik who is the press secretary for the Russian Embassy to the U.S. who declined to comment to any of the specific comments by Trump or anyone else, and said he had no knowledge of Trumps dealings in Russia. What makes this case particularly sticky is the fact that Trump said that members of the press would reward them for their involvement in their ascertainment of sensitive materials, we accept this as the first premise. Then the second premise is that Trump by all accounts of the word is kind of the media he is referring to, so he is in a very loose way saying that he would either directly or indirectly fund things that could be seen as acts of war against the United States of America. 

Melnik went on to say that, ” in general, I believe that the Russia related allegations floating around are completely inadequate and inappropriate, its surprising how childish the narrative is.” He goes on that, “at a time when the U.S. is confronting serious cyber security threats from foreign adversaries the comments of the Republican candidate for President are beyond reckless.”

“whether its removed from the recipients systems and servers has no impact on the data’s continued existence in the myriad systems that it moved through prior to arrival, or was copied to if those systems were themselves compromised.”

Anyway you slice it, there is definitely a hit to Hillary and her campaign as well as Trump and his place in the American Spotlight, but more importantly there is a serious loss to the American people. How the hell did we get here, and is idiocracy really coming to fruition. The constitution is always seen as a document that has an answer at every turn, but in this case we may very well be out of luck, and up a creek with no pedal.
