Trump Jr. Admits Meeting with a Russian Lawyer

Donald Trump Jr. expressed regret at how he handled the situation surrounding his meeting with a Russian attorney last year, telling Fox News' Sean Hannity in an interview airing Tuesday night that he "probably would have done things a little differently."

Earlier in the day, Trump released a screenshots of a chain of emails documenting the organization of the meeting with lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, in which he was told by an associate that she had information that would "incriminate" his father's Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.

Critics of the president pointed to the emails as evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian interference in the presidential election.

During his interview on "Hannity," Trump admitted the situation may have been mishandled, but he said that the meeting was "a nothing," and maintained that his father had no knowledge of the encounter.

"I had been reading about scandals that people were probably under-reporting for a long time, so maybe it was something that had to do with one of those things," said Trump. "I didnít know if there was any credibility, I didnít know if there was anything behind it, I canít vouch for the information. Someone sent me an email ... I read it. I responded accordingly."

He added, "I wouldnít have even remembered it until you started scouring through this stuff," the Trump offspring said. "It was literally just a wasted 20 minutes, which was a shame .... For me this was opposition research. They had something, you know, maybe concrete evidence to all the stories Iíd been hearing about Ö so I think I wanted to hear it out. But really it went nowhere and it was apparent that wasnít what the meeting was about."

So let me get this straight. The Trump campaign team was interested in getting dirt on their opponent during the campaign? If Trump got a dossier on Hillary from the Russians that said Hillary rented a hotel room in Russia and paid prostitutes to pee on her, would that be collusion? Would that be something to investigate?
Thanks from Sabcat and Parsifal

This is gotta be one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen.

I honestly cannot believe that it has gone on this long.

Ever since the campaign the Clinton camp has accused her opponents of the very things they were guilty of and the progressives are so full of jealousy and rage that they will believe anything.


Every time they do this they just loose credibility w/ the general public. Those who are still falling along w/ this are few and far between.


It is very sad.

Hillary and the DNC met with Ukrainian officials and Ukraine was against Trump...even publically said he was not fit for the office. Donald Trump met with a Russian "lawyer"...

Has the media forgotten it was Sect of State Hillary Clinton that worked for and made it possible for Russia to control a big part of our uranium? what is more dangerous for us, meeting with a lawyer or giving Russia that?

Well Lookie Here=> Russian Lawyer Veselnitskaya is Pictured with Obama Ambassador to Russia - 8 Days After Trump Jr. Mtg.


Quote:
That looks like Emin Agalarov sitting next to Natalia Veselnitskaya. He was mentioned in Donald Trump Jr’s statement this morning. Emin helped set up the meeting with Veselnitskaya.

Veselnitskaya was also connected to Fusion GPS, the DNC opposition research firm that produced the fraudulent and discredited Trump Dossier.

So why was Veselnitskaya hanging out with Obama officials just days after her meeting with Donald Trump Jr.?

And why was Veselnitskaya given a privileged seat up front during the Congressional hearing?
