Podesta: To the Public, ‘It’s Starting to Smell More and More Like Collusion’ Between Trump Camp and Russia

During an interview aired on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” former Clinton Campaign John Podesta reacted to the news that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer by saying that, to the public, it’s starting to seem more like there was collusion.

Podesta said, “Well, you know, it’s drip, drip, drip. We keep learning more information. The story keeps changing. Now it is clear that they had a specific meeting to gather dirt on Hillary with a Russian lawyer, with close ties to the Kremlin. And, you know, we — the story, again, keeps changing. We never knew about that meeting that Mr. Kushner attended earlier. Donald Trump Jr. said that he was — specifically went to the meeting with the hopes of the soliciting negative information about Hillary. You know, it’s starting to smell more and more like collusion to, I think, the public, but most importantly, we really need to get the facts straight on this.”
