Trump Jr Admits to Meeting With Russians in Order to Get Dirt on Hillary

899 posts in this topic

These people should really consult with their lawyers before they openly blab about treasonous activity.

Trump's son now admits that the reason he wanted to have the secret meeting with the Russian national was so he could get dirt on Clinton to help win the campaign.

And... he brought the Campaign Manager and now key White House advisor along with him.

Quote

President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., was promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton before agreeing to meet with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign, according to three advisers to the White House briefed on the meeting and two others with knowledge of it.

The meeting was also attended by his campaign chairman at the time, Paul J. Manafort, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Mr. Manafort and Mr. Kushner only recently disclosed the meeting, though not its content, in confidential government documents described to The New York Times.

“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,” Mr. Trump said.

When he was first asked about the meeting on Saturday, he said only that it was primarily about adoptions and mentioned nothing about Mrs. Clinton.

The fact of the Trump Tower meeting was disclosed to government officials in recent days, when Mr. Kushner, who is also a senior White House aide, filed a revised version of a form required to obtain a security clearance.

The Times reported in Aprilthat he had failed to disclose any foreign contacts, including meetings with the Russian ambassador to the United States and the head of a Russian state bank. Failure to report such contacts can result in a loss of access to classified information and even, if information is knowingly falsified or concealed, in imprisonment.

What's interesting is that yesterday he said he had no idea who she was. Today he's saying that the pretext of the meeting was to get dirt the Russians had on Hillary.

 In the article...

In a statement on Sunday, Donald Trump Jr. said he had met with the Russian lawyer at the request of an acquaintance. “After pleasantries were exchanged,” he said, “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.”

He 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. The law so enraged President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia that he retaliated by halting American adoptions of Russian children.

“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,” Mr. Trump said.

 

"Opposition Research" ...  So what?

 

The constant Trump bashing is pathetic and boring.

The truly sad part is that so many don't care what the Trump family does.  Boy could you imagine their outcry if Obama or Clinton's family members did something like this?

By whom?

Trump Jr thought he was getting information that the Russians were "colluding" with the DNC to help Hillary.

Maybe it was nothing but a conversation about adopting children.

Maybe it wasn't. Hence the need for the continued investigation. All this smoke...

Why was Obama supposed to be impeached? Was possible reason did the right have? You cannot impeach someone because you don't  like him. The difference here of course is that there may be a possible reason for impeachment/treason. And the Trumps keep opening their mouths to add fuel to the fire.

every day when you guys get up, do you rush to your preferred device to check in on CNN hoping that this is it, this is THE day when THE BOMBSHELL comes out that will surely sink Trump?  Ever get tired of the disappointment, when, 2, 3 days , maybe 3 weeks later, that bombshell is long forgotten and now you're on, like final straw, smoking gun  #132 or so?  Does it grate on your nerves to still see Donald Trump behind the Presidential seal, in the Oval Office, on official Presidential trips, hopping off Air Force One, etc.? Do you keep saying to yourselves     " That should have been Hillary" over and over?

I think a few of our Trump supporting right wing friends are somewhat upset that we would expect the Trumps to be as ethical and upstanding as the Obamas.
