Regarding Peter Smith

CORRECTION:  After more research, it appears the Time interview was December 7.

Laura Rozen replied to a Peter Smith (deceased) tweet with this:

Or, did Trump, who seems to be prone to repeating what he hears other people say that might be favorable to him, get the line from Smith? I can see that as being more evidence that Trump himself actually was in on the Flynn-Smith efforts to snare Hillary's emails.  During the debates he mentioned the possibility of "someone sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds" doing the hacking.  But, as far as I can determine, he hadn't said anything about someone in New Jersey until after Smith tweeted the phrase.

Trump used that line about "someone at home in New Jersey" in a Time Magazine interview on December 12.  Smith's tweet is dated December 10.  Looks like circumstantial evidence to me that Trump was following Smith's Twitter account, which seems to indicate he was well aware of who Smith was and what he was doing.

Until this very moment, I would have said Trump probably isn't guilty of being personally involved in Russian hacking of Hillary's emails.  I've changed my mind.  He's guilty as hell.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
