A newly released batch of memos from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation suggests that Donald Trump’s policies and actions have benefited Russia more than the United States.
The memos, obtained by Buzzfeed News, have shed light on even more connections between aides to the president and Russian officials.
Reviewing the documents on Sunday morning, an MSNBC “AM Joy” panel agreed that Russia lucked out with Trump as a presidential candidate.
“I think what it reminds me is that this whole presidency succeeded for the Russians beyond their wildest expectations,” conservative columnist Asked Jennifer Rubin suggested.
“It’s all about the Ukrainians,” she continued. “This is preposterous. We know our entire intelligence community confirmed it’s the Russians. We know that Putin was involved in the decision. It’s the Russians, nevertheless, by setting this bug into the campaign and circulating around to Trump — he is still obsessed with this.”
“He is still doing, in essence, Russia’s bidding by trying to, frankly, discredit the Mueller investigation which pointed to Russia,” she added.
