Actually.. the excuse direct from Don Jr is that he took a meeting with the Russian lawyer hoping to receive dirt on Hillary, the dirt didn't turn out to be anything, and the lady ended up talking about the adoption policy instead... and Don Jr felt like it was a waste of time cause omg that's not what we came here to talk about.

And that he actually released a statement admitting all that, thinking that this would help his cause, boggles the mind.

Quote:
“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.”
"Well yea, we went there to collud, but they totes weren't on the same page"

He admits to attempting to collud with the Russians in his statement denying colluding with the Russians.

Here's the kicker... Three days after this meeting Assange announced that he'd be releasing the emails. Three days.

He frames it that Russia was supporting the DNC which I assume his goal was to try and appear patriotic to uncover this collusion between Dems and Russia.

I think we all know what happened but I've yet to see anything that would really hold up in court. It's all just vague talk right now.

Suppose it's my own frustration and lack of patience with the investigation which leads towards skepticism of anything good happening from all this.

We were like so going to be colluding and all, ya know? But then they were like "da Democrats is already doing it" and we were lik whaaaaaa? So we didn't collude at all. No collusion. The democrats might have, though. Not totes sure. Might want to ask them. Oh, and dad knew nothing about it. Even though half the family was there. He was designing a new hat.

But why isn't anyone talking about the uranium sale that Clinton made with the Russians? Why isn't that being brought up?

Or why didn't Obama stop the Russians from meddling in the election when he knew it was happening?

Why aren't we talking about people who hold no power in office???!!!!!

As a public radio person said earlier this is important because it's real public admission that Team Trump was going to The +a) Russian for damaging info.

May be slow going but each time something will turn a few heads around. It adds up over time (before ?too much damage is done? )

Oh and fuck you, Scott Pruit!

Lol can this person ever answer any questions? I don't believe I've ever heard her answer a question. They always ask her one question and it's like they asked her a totally different question cos her answers are totally different than the subject being asked. This is a long interview but here it is:

WASHINGTON — 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.
Oh... and Trump Sr's first tweet about Hillary deleting her emails? Same day Jr and Jared met with the Russian lawyer.

Oopsie dasies

Kellyanne Conway even said that the meeting was standard operating procedure for the campaign, so... they're now fully admitting that colluding with the Russians was, like, totally normal and what's the big deal, guys?

And the Republican base is completely cool with it. The ends apparently justify ANY and all means now.

That's the talking point as of now. That this is all standard procedure for campaigns.

Such mental gymnastics

The June 3, 2016, email sent to Donald Trump Jr. could hardly have been more explicit: One of his father’s former Russian business partners had been contacted by a senior Russian government official and was offering to provide the Trump campaign with dirt on Hillary Clinton.

The documents “would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father,” read the email, written by a trusted intermediary, who added, “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”

If the future president’s elder son was surprised or disturbed by the provenance of the promised material — or the notion that it was part of an ongoing effort by the Russian government to aid his father’s campaign — he gave no indication.

He replied within minutes: “If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”

I'm really baffled why Jr thought it was a good idea to release the full email chain.

I mean, I'm glad he did, but, is he really that thick that he doesn't see what it confirms? Did he really think "this will shut them up!"
