(A) Lies about meetings with an attacking, historically adversarial nation or their surrogates, lies about loans or investors attached to, or known to be, surrogates of an historically adversarial nation or their surrogates.
All the meetings, between Trump cabinet members and campaign surrogates, which had been undisclosed and were only admitted to once they were discovered—not by House inquiry—but by the FBI and CIA and special investigator Robert Mueller. These clandestine meetings were concealed because the actors involved in them knew that said meetings with agents of a government with an historically adversarial relationship with the United States were undertaken to illegally and corruptly affect the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election. They are therefore treason.
All hidden or undisclosed meetings and/or involvement of cooperation, knowingly allowing, or coordination of an attack against our nation by a country with an historically adversarial relationship with the United States must be deemed to be evidence that said collusion would be corrupt and illegal, resulting in harm to the country and the citizens at large and to our government.
The Political Crossroads
What This Open Lawlessness Means
Robert Mercer and his daughter, Rebeka, whom Trump installed in the white house along with Bannon (who appears to be Trump's handler) own the lion's share of Cambridge Analytica—which is the subsidiary of company of similar function in the U.K. called "Strategic Communications Laboratories". Bannon sits on the board of Robert Mercer's company Cambridge Analytica, which has used cute, innocuous little personality inventories hosted on Facebook to gather data on the people who take the tests. The tests were tailored in every imaginable form, empowering Cambridge Analytica to lure anyone into taking some of them, and this data created opportunity for Cambridge Analytica to psychometrically profile 220 million Americans. These Americans were also correlated graphically to their locations and the data was then weaponized: Buzz word and phrases were designed to frighten those easily frightened—anger those who felt disenfranchised, and to woo, normally rational individuals, who were listing towards Trump, unbalanced and rationally impaired under the burden of the psychological warfare, the attack—the psychological bomb—delivered by their trained conman—Trump. "Conman" is shorthand for "confidence man" and that is what Trump is—a salesman who gains your trust and then abuses it to bilk you and take you unawares. Think "used car salesman of real estate turned national TRAITOR". "Believe me," he's so often said "It's gonna be fantastic and you will be very, very happy". (Or else, right? Are you getting the picture?)
This weaponized information was then then fed to Trump in near real time who, somewhat more than simply coincidentally engaged in his Tweetkreigs to amplify them out into the Twitter stream. He also used these phrases and words designed specifically to upset and frighten and anger Americans along party lines, and these phases and words were tailored as talking points in the pitches he used to present himself as a candidate in the various parts of the country he visited—essentially morphing him from one community to another like a chameleon changes his colors. The data stream he was fed through Bannon et al enabled him to know the hearts and minds of those to whom he was "pitching himself as their savior" because Cambrige Analytica provided him information in near real time from those same Facebook tests to gauge the impacts his "pitches" were having and advised him as to how to change his pitch to create maximum bang for his bucks. But the bucks, $15 million of them, came from Robert Mercer and were then paid back to Mercer's company for the services rendered.
Cambridge Analytica has boasted openly that they got Trump his election to the White House and their parent company in the UK—Strategic Communications Laboratories—has similarly openly boasted that they caused the UK to separate from the European commonwealth. The thot plickens... Mercer installed Bannon as Trump's Handler, and his daughter Rebeka as his mole in the White House, to keep a finger on the pulse of the fallout and progress. Mercer, it is worth noting has stated he believes a being's value is only in how much money and assets said being owns—or in how much pleasure they provide to him. His stated intention is to completely disassemble the government infrastructure that keeps corporatists from destroying the environment and working workers to death and then euthanizing them or directing them to go away someplace discrete and die quietly so they are no bother to him.
So now, one billionaire recluse's dream of controlling the whole world and being king of it all, with Trump and Puntin as the "Hands of the King" has come perilously close to being realized because he knows what we love and fear and hate and want and what frightens us, and he is happy to use psychological warfare on his own people and his own society to deconstruct it. This is WAR. This is TREASON and Trump is a party to it and so is Bannon and Rebeka Mercer and probably Mike Pence, and Mike Flynn for how could they NOT know? Further, all of Europe is languishing under losses to property values because of Brexit and the NATO alliance is threatened—and behind all of the clamour of an America more polarized than it has ever been since the Civil War, is heard—in Russia and Long Island where Mercer lives—the sound of Champaign bottles being popped as Putin anticipates the free reign in which he expects to be able to do as he pleases—to attack Europe at will without recourse from the US. This little illegal bombing of Syria Trump pleasured himself with was a ploy to make us think he really doesn't like Putin or have any agreements with him. But the fact of the matter is he and Putin are presently well positioned to get away with a corporatist coup d'etat in the western hemisphere and, one expects, Putin intends to take over the eastern hemisphere.
