Donald Trump, Jr. said that Russian Efforts aid the Trump Campaign

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.

The email to the younger Mr. Trump was sent by Rob Goldstone, a publicist and former British tabloid reporter who helped broker the June 2016 meeting. In a statement on Sunday, Mr. Trump*acknowledgedthat he was interested in receiving damaging information about Mrs. Clinton, but gave no indication that he thought the lawyer might have been a Kremlin proxy.

Mr. Goldstone’s message, as described to The New York Times by the three people, indicates that the Russian government was the source of the potentially damaging information. It does not elaborate on the wider effort by Moscow to help the Trump campaign.

There is no evidence to suggest that the promised damaging information was related to Russian government computer hacking that led to the release of thousands of Democratic National Committee emails. The meeting took place less than a week before it was widely reported that Russian hackers had infiltrated the committee’s servers.

So the fact that Donny Jr. says the meeting happened. Junior says the meeting invovled the Russian attorney, Manafort, Kushner and Junior. It lasted 30 minutes. They talked about Russian adoptions. Junior went to get dirt on Hillary--that's what he was promised. The meeting was set up by a guy called Goldstone.......and all of this is fake news? Never happened??

Well, I'm glad that's settled.

The point is that Fart establishes truth by act of will, and it changes every five minutes. Interesting world the weirdoes live in now, isn't it!

As I've said before, our world has turned upside down. Bad is good. Immoral is moral. Lies are a good thing. Everything the president says is true. Events that happened DID NOT happen. Putin is our friend. Go figure.

The idiot calls it fake news even though little Donald Segretti and his newly retained attorney admit to the basic facts in the story. These Wingnuts humiliate themselves with their brainless comments. Hey, that's why they were Trump voters to begin with.........LOL

You're smiling at what the President said about the things that are true?
