Ever since Donald Trump’s moron son, Donald Trump Jr., blew up his father’s Russia scandal by admitting that he’d met with a Russian lawyer during Trump’s presidential campaign last year, the Trump campaign has been denying there was any collusion. Trump advisors tried to claim innocence due to the fact that Trump Jr. wasn’t given any damaging information on Trump’s competitor, Hillary Clinton, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t looking for it.
NBC was able to get an interview with the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr., and she’s telling quite a different story. In an interview with NBC’s Keir Simmons, Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya spilled some very incriminating information about Trump Jr., and this could be really bad news for Trump.
According to Veselnitskaya, who reportedly has ties to the Kremlin, she had been contacted to meet at the Trump Tower with Trump’s son. At that meeting, Trump’s inner circle asked her to give them any information that could possibly damage Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Communicating through a translator, Veselnitskaya told Simmons:
You wake up one morning and you find out you are the focus of all the high ranking, upstream media.”
Trump Jr. had initially stated that the meeting would be to discuss Russian adoption policy, but that was a lie. The meeting was also attended by former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and Trump’s son in law Jared Kushner, which later made sense when The New York Times reported that the meeting was actually about destroying Clinton. Veselnitskaya said:
I never knew who else would be attending the meeting. All I knew that Mr. Donald Trump Jr. was willing to meet with me.”
Veselnitskaya revealed that she’d had very little interaction with Kushner and Manafort. Kushner “was only present in the meeting for probably the first seven to ten minutes,” before he “stood up and left the room.” Manafort “was always looking at his phone. He never took any active part in the conversation.” Trump Jr., however, was focused on destroying Clinton. When Simmons asked why Trump’s team though Veselnitskaya could help them hurt Clinton’s campaign, the Russian lawyer said:
It’s quite possible that maybe they were looking for such information. They wanted it so badly.”
You can watch the bombshell interview below, which could have very serious implications for Trump’s Russia scandal:
Trump must have been watching cable news this morning, because he has indirectly responded by throwing a temper tantrum about the media and Democratic Party:
Keep an eye on Trump’s Twitter account today, as NBC rolls out parts of this interview. He’s sure to lose his temper and incriminate himself again!
