Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 02, 2019

President Donald Trump and other top 2016 Trump campaign officials repeatedly privately discussed how the campaign could get access to stolen Democratic emails WikiLeaks had in 2016, according to newly released interview notes from Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation.

"[Rick] Gates recalled a time on the campaign aircraft when candidate Trump said, 'get the emails.' [Michael] Flynn said he could use his intelligence sources to obtain the emails," investigators wrote in a summary of Gates' April 2018 interview with Mueller's team. Flynn was a foreign policy adviser on the campaign and became Trump's first national security adviser.

"Flynn had the most Russia contacts of anyone on the campaign and was in the best position to ask for the emails if they were out there," the investigators also wrote about Gates' interview.

Gates described in an interview with Mueller investigators last year how several close advisers to Trump, Trump's family members and Trump himself considered how to get the stolen documents and pushed the effort, according to investigators' summary.

He just wanted to return the emails to their rightful owner.

@#1 ... Flynn had the most Russia contacts of anyone on the campaign ...

Wait. What!?!?!?

Now we seem to be boasting of the higher number of Russian contacts that a person in the Trump campaign has?

Full stop here.


Can someone please fill in the context of this here for me. I want to understand this.
