It might just be bad judgment, or it might be treason.

Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe deemed the meeting “attempted theft of a presidential election” and “a high crime against the state,” but he did not specify exactly what law Trump Jr. might have broken.

A former ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush went as far as saying Trump Jr. committed treason. “He must have known that the only way Russia would get such information was by spying,” Richard Painter tweeted after The New York Times broke the story.

But

since Trump claimed Veselnitskaya approached him with the intel offer, it would be trickier to prove he actively solicited anything from her. There is also no evidence now that anyone in the Trump campaign offered anything in exchange. “Based on this single incident, it would be hard to show there was an actual crime committed,” Gerhardt said

“You need bad faith and you need a bad act. You could still argue that neither of those happened.”
personally, i cannot see this going anywhere.

All of which lawyers on both sides say are real consequences he may face, in a Politico article today.


Donald Trump Jr. Could End Up In Prison For Illegal Meeting With Russia


Actually Don Jr. wouldn't have to have accepted anything from a foreign national. The Logan Act refers to "negotiating with foreign governments". It's about INTENT -- not necessarily the actual acceptance of info or gifts.

Now there's a new twist that will absolutely MAKE the Trump cult's day. Did you know:
Obama is running some kind of “shadow government,” a conspiracy theory which has since been invoked by a Republican congressman and by one of Trump’s attorneys. The right-wing hysteria took on a new level of feverishness after Obama met with a handful of former and current world leaders, some of whom he worked closely with as president.

Don Jr can now say "Obama made me do it." LOL

These Wingnuts are so pathetic. If Hillary had won and the same lies and Russian contacts were discovered, the Wingnuts would be screaming for impeachment. These were the same assholes that wanted her imprisoned merely for having a private email server. This is why I can never be a wingnut. I can never behave like such a dick.

The Logan Act is no applicable. There is a reason no has been prosecuted under the act.

I'm just picturing all of the news cameras outside of the prison he's sent to covering all of faithful cabal of idiots, with their signs being waved saying there's nothing there, and no laws were broken.

Little Donald Segretti released his emails. He asked the New York Times to hold off on releasing the Russian emails then released them himself. He CC'd the Russian emails to Manafort and Kushner. The emails clearly state that an attorney from the Russian government had "official" anti-Hillary documents supplied by the Russian government. This is collusion folks. The wheel begin to come off now. This is treason !!!!!

1. And if this turns out to be a bigger scandal then it now appears what are you going to do?

2. Re: Your signature. You do realize that NO ONE is suggesting the election was "rigged". The Russians interfered in and influenced the election (which EVERY intelligence agency says happened) in favor of Trump. In a closely divided election what they did MAY have tipped the scales. You have no problem with that?
