Sen. Angus King: ‘Multiple Contacts’ Between Trump and Russia Detailed in Senate Report

‘The reality is that there were these multiple contacts that are detailed in this 1,000-page report that make it clear that the government — that the Trump campaign was involved in coordinating in some way, shape or form with the Russians’

EXCERPT:

KING: “There’s also a telling moment in the report where Rick Gates, who was Manafort’s assistant, was in the car, in the car with Donald Trump on the way to LaGuardia. He remembers it in detail. Trump is on the phone with Roger Stone. And he turns at the end of the conversation to Gates and says 'there will be more coming from WikiLeaks.' Well, that’s a pretty clear indication that candidate Trump via Roger Stone knew what was going on. So I don’t agree with Marco Rubio’s characterization to say there was no — is it cooperation, is it a conspiracy, is it coordination, is it collusion? I don’t care what you call it, but the reality is that there were these multiple contacts that are detailed in this 1,000-page report that make it clear that the government — that the Trump campaign was involved in coordinating in some way, shape or form with the Russians."
