I believe that accepting gifts even through a third party is also illegal.

A good opposition research organization shouldn't even be a third party in regards to the campaign.   If they find some good dirt they don't give it to the campaign.   They give it to a friendly reporter.

So it sounds like old Trump Jr should have just passed this information off to some friendly reporter to follow up on. Well that is what happens when amateurs run for office.

Well I doubt that Hillary would have made this mistake, so obviously not all criminals. B)

Exactly.   It was amateur hour once again.   If the Trump campaign, and now Trump administration, had the slightest bit of discipline then they wouldn't have these sorts of self inflicted errors.

Of course if the left wasn't in complete meltdown with the media egging them on this also would not have been an issue.

In real life they're the leaders of the most powerful country in the world.   They need to start acting like it.

Well seems that "intent" wasn't present because he seemed to not know it was frowned on to even look like you are getting something from foreigners. If the excuse worked for Hillary then it should for him even if no law was broken.

Why did he lie about it if he didn't know it was "frowned on?"

Well I don't have the exact list of what he said, but as I remember it (take with a lot of salt) he just gave the minimal answer, so was it really lies? 

He said he talked about adoption (basically that was the main conversation).

etc. So can you supply a link to questions, and then his "lies?".

Seriously?

You're not at all up to speed here.

Don't you follow the news?

If not, why are you commenting?

Watch his mouth: :D

This 2016 Donald Trump Jr. interview about Russia is now downright cringeworthy

I make it a policy to not watch the news, they lie. B)

No seriously I read the news, and I frankly never want to hear Trump speak again, I got conned into it with the Tic Tac thread.

So if you want to show the lies then provide a link to some text, otherwise I don't really care, the fact of the matter is that every politician, and government official lies all the time non stop and about things that they do not need to lie about, then of course people call things lies that are just incomplete truths.

I'm not playing, "Let's talk about something else."

It is your claim that it "seems that intent wasn't present."

Lying about a crime is evidence  of "consciousness of guilt."

If, by now, you don't know that Junior lied about it, you are too uninformed to continue this discussion with me.

That is hysterically funny and pathetic at the same time.

Here's an op ed from the LA Times that is basically blaming 'the leak' on Kushner's amended SF-86.

Well since you haven't shown any lies then there is nothing to show evidence of guilt (your logic).

Not to mention "Intent" is how Comey got Hillary off, she certainly lied after the fact about her Email server, so now you are saying it is proof of her guilt.

That was my point. The left and its double standards, without them they would have no standards at all.

or more than a year, the most senior officials in the Trump administration have adamantly, even scornfully, denied that there was any contact between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. The bombshell report earlier this week of Donald Trump Jr.’s efforts to secure dirt on Hillary Clinton from Russian officials — and his June 9, 2016, meeting with the supposed purveyor of that dirt as well as then-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his father’s aide Jared Kushner — has put the lie to those denials

Well since they they are saying in this paragraph that Trump lied about contact with the russian government, and that this email chain proves it shows that they do not even know what a lie is. Remember the woman he met wasn't from the Russian government.

  The  Trumps  believe that those excreted morning tweets to the faithful are the only truth:

Quote

 

Trump Jr. told the Times in March that he never met with any Russians while working in a campaign capacity.

“Did I meet with people that were Russian? I’m sure, I’m sure I did,” he said. “But none that were set up. None that I can think of at the moment. And certainly none that I was representing the campaign in any way, shape or form.”
