It was just a matter of time until one of Trump’s precious, privileged children screwed up.
The Times on Sunday reported that the president’s eldest son was promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton before meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer at Trump Tower.
Others who were involved in the meeting were Paul Manafort, the campaign’s chairman at the time, and Jared Kushner.
In a statement, Donald Trump Jr. said he had met with a Russian lawyer at the request of an acquaintance. He says:
“The woman stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Ms. Clinton. Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information.”
Trump Jr, said she then turned the conversation to adoption of Russian children and the Magnitsky Act, an American law that blacklists suspected Russian human rights abusers. Once this law emerged, Russian President Putin retaliated by no longer accepting American adoptions of Russian children.
Trump Jr. promptly ended his statement with:
“It became clear to me that this was the true agenda all along and that the claims of potentially helpful information were a pretext for the meeting.“
If it smells like collusion and talks like collusion….guess what it is–COLLUSION.
The fact that Trump’s son confirmed there were “potentially helpful information” in this meeting to get information on Clinton is indeed a felony.
Not disclosing this information and lying about never meeting with the Russians about the campaign is treasonous.
Trump’s moronic son thought he was helping his father out, but all he did was confirm that the meeting did happen and that the Trump campaign was open for business on collusion with Russia. It appears that nearly the entire Trump campaign structure met with, or had contact with Russia.
Can someone say impeachment?
