With the news breaking that Donald Trump Jr. sought opposition research against Hillary Clinton to aid his father’s campaign, his best course of action is to lawyer up and shut up.
New York Times reports:
“Before arranging a meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer he believed would offer him compromising information about Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump Jr. was informed in an email that the material was part of a Russian government effort to aid his father’s candidacy, according to three people with knowledge of the email.”
However, since Junior clearly isn’t that bright in the first place considering he took a meeting with a Kremlin-connected lawyer, he’s continuing his march of stupidity by tweeting about the reports of his wrongdoing.
“Media & Dems are extremely invested in the Russia story. If this nonsense meeting is all they have after a yr, I understand the desperation!”

Nonsense meeting? Ha! Junior met with a Russian lawyer with the intent of gaining information to defeat his father’s opposition. That’s not only wrong, that’s treason considering it’s using a foreign adversary to harm the United States’ electoral process.
This story isn’t going anywhere and may just be the every increasing top of the iceberg. The coming weeks and months are going to be very, very interesting.
