You assume that these people who have lied again and again about meeting with Russian agents, are now telling the truth about the intent and content and outcome of these meetings.
In otber words, you are a gullible SOB, and neither you nor any of these liars gets any 'benefit of the doubt.’
(please keep in mind — the lies went so far as to be told on apications for security clearances. These people are not just liars, they are criminals. I don’t believe a word they say anymore. They have abused the privilege of being trusted As have you, sir.)
