Earlier today, President Trump tried to deflect attention from the growing Russian collusion scandal that is threatening to engulf his entire administration by using the oldest trick in the Republican playbook – blame the Democrats!

Trump’s team was sent a picture of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) eating donuts with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin in 2003, as if this is somehow evidence of some wrongdoing on Schumer’s part and not the desperate attempts of a team guilty of treason to shine the spotlight on someone else.
Schumer took to Twitter and fired back this retort:
Happily talk re: my contact w Mr. Putin & his associates, took place in '03 in full view of press & public under oath. Would you &your team? https://t.co/yXgw3U8tmQ

Trump’s ship is rapidly sinking as it becomes clear that more and more members of his inner circle are implicated in the allegations that his campaign team colluded with the Russian government to subvert the democratic process and that Trump himself is under blackmail from the Kremlin.
An internet sleuth looked into the matter and discovered how exactly this image had gotten to the Trump administration, and well…it says it all:
No matter how hard Trump tries, there’s no sweeping these explosive allegations under the rug. If Trump really has nothing to hide, then why is he trying so pathetically to point the finger elsewhere?
