CNN's Video of Trump with Russians

The Russian collusion argument by the Democrats has gotten so ridiculous, that I've gotten to the point where I really don't care.  Now, there's a video that CNN is so proud of.

Here's how the fantabulous CNN article regarding the video begins...

Video obtained exclusively by CNN offers a new look inside the web of relationships now at the center of allegations of collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russia.
The video shows the future President Donald Trump attending a dinner with an Azerbaijani-Russian family who became Trump's business partners in Las Vegas in June 2013. It also shows their publicist, Rob Goldstone, who would later send Donald Trump Jr. the emails that have brought the eldest Trump son to the center of the controversy over possible collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russia.
Goldstone, who is also seen in the video talking with Trump, claimed in the 2016 emails that damaging information against Hillary Clinton surfaced after a meeting between someone Goldstone described as "the Crown prosecutor of Russia" and Aras Agalarov, an Azerbaijani-Russian billionaire with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Goldstone then offered to set up a call between the younger Trump and Emin Agalarov, the billionaire's son and a pop star Goldstone represents, to discuss the information.
    The video, obtained by CNN in the wake of the email disclosures, offers fresh insights into the warm relationship between Trump and the Agalarovs, which has been widely reported because Aras Agalarov and Emin Agalarov inked a multi-million dollar deal with Trump to bring the Miss Universe pageant to Moscow in 2013.
    Evan Sayet, author of The Kindergarden of Eden, explains the folly of the liberal left's thinking:

    Meeting with someone no more means collusion than someone taking a meeting with a studio in Hollywood means you've collaborated with them. First, to collude or collaborate, a deal had to have been made. Then actions -- not just words at a meeting -- had to have taken place.

    If you told your friends that you "collaborated" with a studio executive because he took a meeting with you (and rejected what you had to offer) you'd be a liar.

    I'll give you an example of collusion, trading millions of dollars in fees and "donations" in exchange for facilitating the sale of uranium. See the difference?
