"This Is Wild" Lavrov Mocks US Media Mania Over 'Russian Lawyer' & Trump Jr.

Following Kremlin denials that the 'Russian lawyer' that met with Trump Jr. was 'Kremlin-related', Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday it was preposterous that U.S. President Donald Trump's eldest son was blamed for the meeting.

Hitting back against accusations of Russian meddling in the 206 U.S. elections, Reuters reports that Lavrov asked to be shown "at least one fact" proving Moscow tried to interfere with the democratic process.

"I learned with surprise that a Russian lawyer, a woman, is being blamed and Trump's son is being blamed for meeting. For me, this is wild," Lavrov told a joint news conference with his Belgian counterpart in Brussels.

 

"Because when any person speaks to a lawyer, what problem or threat could there be? I didn't know about this, I learned about it from television."

The emails released by Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday are seen by Trump critics as the most concrete evidence yet that Trump campaign officials welcomed Russian help to win the election. But Lavrov dismissed the media interest in the email release, saying:

"It's amazing that serious people are making a mountain out of a molehill."

Still when all you have is a hammer of division and blame, every headline looks like a nail...

And the Russian joke on the U.S. is far from over. Check out the law firm that the future FBI director worked for:

"Christopher Wray's law firm — King & Spalding — represents Rosneft and Gazprom, two of Russia’s largest state-controlled oil companies. Rosneft was prominently mentioned in the now infamous 35-page dossier prepared by former British MI6 agent Christopher Steele. The dossier claims that the CEO of Rosneft, Igor Sechin, offered candidate Donald Trump, through Trump’s campaign advisor Carter Page, a 19% stake in the company in exchange for lifting U.S. sanctions on Russia. The dossier claims that the offer was made in July while Page was in Moscow."

It is called 'distraction' Mr. Lavrov. You see as much effort being given to create a false-narrative concerning the President and the phony collusion story. It is imperative that the real story of the DNC, Hillary, and the Clinton Foundation not be delved in to. For if there be collusion it should start in the House of Clinton, and the courtyard of those underlings attached to it's foundation. There you will find all your evidence required to charge this whole lot under the RICO Act.

Wonder how many realize that in all these years NOT ONE MSM presenter has said one word on the subject that questions the official story... and in fact they viciously attack any who express any doubt (they would be fired the same day and they all know it)! Mr Global is in complete control...And after all these years over of 24/7 lies, half the country (the other half is sound asleep) isn't buying a word of it!

What the fuck would one expect him to say ? "DonHope all is wellEmin asked that I schedule a meeting with you and The Russian government attorney who is flying over from Moscow for this Thursday.I believe you are aware of the meeting - and so wondered if 3pm or later on Thursday works for you?I assume it would be at your office.I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first." So yeah, I also would like to see proof.How about a return email from miniTrump along these lines;"Sure Rob, I'll meet with this attorney so long as we both know that I've done due diligence, and you or she are talking out of your ass. She is not a Russian government attorney, which is why I'm prepared to meet her without reporting the both of you to the FBI"Regards, Don jnr

 First, she wasn't, and isn't, a Russian government attorney.And even if she was, so what?  The US considers "legitimate" leaders imposed by force of US invasion; US-sponsored coups; US-sponsored "color revolutions" (with US officials getting on stage at demonstrations designed to overthrow a constitutional government); US-sponsored assassinations; etc.Even if we take all of the worst allegations as true (which they aren't but let's play the game of "even if ...."), we have Russian whistleblowers exposing some of the underlying corruption in the US system.  It doesn't matter who the messenger is, if it's a fact, it's a fact, and not "interference".  Indeed what the media and "Democrats" are engaged in is a shrieking orgy of a modified ad hominem attack (attacking the message because of its source, not its truth).  Moreover, for a country supposedly dedicated to free speech, it's amazing to see people calling for impeachment of the President because his son wanted to listen to someone's speech.What's "interference" is when all the Jew-controlled media (read:  virtually all US media) oppose a candidate because he is not sufficiently pro-tribe.  And that actually has a major deleterious affect on our country, and, moreover, it's "racist" (according to the same Jew-controlled media) to expose that and hence this interference cannot even be discussed.Not to mention that the US has done vastly worse interference in Russian politics aside from offering up some opposition research (which is standard fare in US "foreign policy").

Lavrov asked for proof. Would you please give him the proof? Please? I've been waiting months for all these assholes in Congress and the MEDIA to produce ONE SINGLE SHRED OF PROOF. Nope. Because there is none. Now, lets move onto more important things, like the Amazon sales and polar bears clinging to melting ice floes.

they're the same problem. i'm really sick of mealy mouths using "issues" instead of a steaming sack of lies like this. i still haven't managed to locate "pleny of evidence" for russki election hacking, unlike locating "pleny of evidence" of israhell election tampering or amerkkan election tampering all over the world for decades. perhaps u can provide some links to ur "pleny of evidence" of russki election hacking.

I think the Russians were as surprised as anyone that Trump won.Their entire motive is to disrupt and discredit the US government as a whole, that's all they need, and it is working rather well. They've done this rather well in Ukraine and other Eastern-block countries too.Here's a few but I'm sure you will squawk about the sourceshttps://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-06-13/russian-breach-of-39…

I think the Russians, and pretty much every other country in the world, know that they would never win a shooting war with the US.But they also see how the MIC and intelligence agencies are running the country and will eventually bankrupt it. If the US was a corporation we would have been declared bankrupt years ago. They are just sitting back watching us spend millions on totally useless ICBM intercept tests and pointless military adventures while domestically we are becoming a third world country.

Yup, its a lesson out of the US playbook when they forced the USSR off the rails by forcing it to overspend. Now that the US is almost spent out, Russia is hunkered down (they reduced their defence spending last year) every so often pushing a bit of their defence tech forward as the next 'better than US' giving the MIC the lead to demand more money to counter it.Roll reversal I'd say.

The US government has been doing a landmark job of discrediting itself sinceClinton or Father Bush, and needs no help from the Russians or anyone else. What could the Russians possibly add to the War in Bosnia, Iraq, and the regimechanges in Syria, Ukraine, Libya.i suppose one could add the carpet bombing of those Arab nations to create thetsunami of of refugees who are now destablizing our European partners. The US was creator and now is the defender of ISIS. The bottom line is that the Pentagon, deep state and White House want to callPutin's raise to a total nuclear exchange in this high stakes poker game becausethey think he's bluffing.  Very intellegent. You too seem to be taking a flier with your spouse and children that he is.

Yes, yes we did. The problem you might be having is we didn't read anything "into" it, like the MSM.

Now, if you'd like us to read things "into" emails, let's first start with all the emails off the DNC server, shall we? Hmmm, Mexicans are "taco bowls". Could that mean all Democrats are racists? Hmmm, let's make Bernie Sanders look bad by insinuating he's atheist/Jewish. Could that mean all Democrats are anti-Semitic? Hmmmm, collusion with the media. Could that mean all Democratic politicians are out to lie to the American public with the media's help?

Can't have it both ways. . .unless you're a Democrat.

The DNC refused to allow law enforcement to touch any of their data and instead brought in their fav private tech contractor (with close ties to Clinton... and anti Russia forces btw) to spend weeks wiping the server and every other device in the building (including all cellphones and even the central phone messaging system).As a result of that conscious effort by the DNC, there is no evidence of any hack, and he preponderance of evidence to date points to an inside leak.... CNN repeating lies all day long does not make it true.Now why would the DNC, who blamed the Russians the day the DNC emails dropped, destroy any and all evidence that would prove the story?And, if Russia committed a crime (as they claim), isn't destruction of evidence a crime?

Unsolicited advice for all jerk-offs: Stop using the phrase "hacked the election". It's just too stupid and makes you seem even dumber than you already are - if that's even possible. "Hacked the election", what the fuck does that even mean? What could it possibly mean? It's cringeworthy and tiresome and saying it immediately labels you as a brain-dead mouther of shitlib nonsense .Got it?

"It's amazing that serious people are making a mountain out of a molehill."Unfortunately they aren't "serious people".They are asshole politicians more intent on destroying Trump than doing their fucking job serving the american taxpayer.And they are media jews more intent on destroying the country because of their seething hatred of white people than objectively reporting the news.

The DC establishment, along with the DNC, and ALL leftists, want Trump out of office.Their mouthpiece is their partner in crime, the fake news/establishment corporate media.Whether Trump gets imprisoned, impeached, assasinated, or resigns out of frustration; these maniacs will work to the ends of the earth to unseat him or delegitimize him.There is no Russia collusion or meddling.This is a very corrupted sytem that is unwilling to relinquish its hold on power.Take this any way you wish, but Trump is basically in this fight himself. God bless Donald J Trump and all patriotic Americans!#MAGA
