The fake news media is hyperventilating about Donald Trump, Jr’s meeting with a Russian lawyer.
They are screaming about collusion and some pundits and Democrats are even claiming it was treason.
But then Donald Trump shut everyone down the whole issue with one answer.
In a press conference with the French President, Trump was asked about the meeting – which was set up by a music publicist Trump, Jr. knew from the 2013 Miss Universe pageant – and said anyone would have taken the meeting.
Breitbart reports on his answer:
Trump said, “My son is a wonderful young man. He took a meeting with a Russian lawyer. Not a government lawyer but a Russian lawyer. It was a short meeting.”
He continued, “I think from a practical standpoint most people would have taken that meeting. It’s called opposition research or research into your opponent. I’ve had many people — I’ve only been in politics for two years, but I’ve had many people call up and say, ‘Oh, gee, we have information on this factor or this person’ or frankly Hillary. That’s very standard in politics. Politics is not the nicest business in the world. But it’s very standard where they have information, and you take the information. In the case of Don, he listened. I guess they talked about — as I see it they talked about adoption and some things. Adoption wasn’t even a part of the campaign. But nothing happened from the meeting. Zero happened from the meeting. And honestly, I think the press made a very big deal about something really a lot of people would do.”
He added, “Now, the lawyer that went to the meeting, I say that she was in the halls of Congress also. Somebody said that her visa or her passport to come into the country was approved by Attorney General Lynch. Now maybe that’s wrong. I just heard that a little while ago. I was a little surprised to hear that. She was here because of Lynch.”
The key part about the meeting that the media glosses over is that the Trump campaign was promised information of collusion between Clinton and Russia.
This lawyer was supposedly going to deliver evidence Russians were illegally funding Clinton and the Democrats.
This meeting – and the opposition research that was promised – had nothing to do with the email hacks of the Democrat National Committee that were reported one week later.
But nothing came of the meeting.
No information changed hands and no quid pro quo was established.
THE demoRATS,muslims and main stream media cnn,abc,nbc,cbs,msnbc r the WAR on American,long live President Trump! GOD bless the United States Of American!LIBERALISM Is It Mental Illness or Demonic Oppression?
First off – These political people do NOT need that kind of power. They are suppose to be working for WE the people!!! By working THEIR rules the way the do, this great Nation in moving fast toward annihilation.
@Hamguy, “Most people would have called the FBI”? Oh really? Maybe you should check to see how many times the dems called the FBI to report their scheduled meetings with their comrades BEFORE they made agreements and actually accepted money in exchange for favors. Don’t count your chickens before all the eggs in the clutch hatch LOL!
“Most people” would have called the FBI.
The very fact that Jr. took the meeting on the stated pretext, info on the Clinton campaign from a number of Russian people is in itself an acceptance of the possibility of collusion of some kind. The meeting didn’t yield the promised information, but it is pretty clear that Jr., Monafort, and Kuschner were hoping that it would yield the promised result.
Taking this meeting was a very big rookie mistake (as one comment above noted) and Sr.’s administration may pay dearly for it.
Hillary Clinton selling of 20% of “our” uranium to the Russians is fine with the left wing loons. Bill Clinton receiving $500,000 for a speech in Moscow right after that deal went through is also fine. Bill Clinton paving the path for a Nuclear North Korea is fine with the left wing loons as is Barry – whoever the hell he really is – paving the way for a nuclear Iran.
A Moscow-based technology initiative funded in part by the Russian government funneled tens of millions of dollars into the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was serving as secretary of state, according to a new report released.
But if President Trump or someone he is close to talks to someone from Russia it is treason?
Well put, Mike! If a Trump family member so much as listens to the 1812 Overture, that’s “colluding with a hostile foreign power”– but Obama can give billions of taxpayer dollars to IRAN… with nary a peep from the MSM and Left. And that’s just one instance in a whole roster of ways that the Clintons and Obama REALLY DID “collude”– with Russia (or Ukraine), Iran, North Korea, etc etc etc…
34% of all the people in the United States that receive food stamps live in California. They are 2nd to New York. So 70% of the people who receive food stamps live in those two states. Both are rife with crime infested cities illegal aliens and huge deficits. Yet, they really believe they are the ones to tell everyone else how to run things? Maybe – if they fixed their own house first.
Even if my father were running for US President against a HORRID CORRUPT GLOBALIST WITCH, I have far too much integrity, intelligence, and savvy to accept an invitation to meet with a Russian lawyer who used “dirt” on an opponent to try to entrap me! But neither would I have informed James Comey because he was totally partisan and untrustworthy, and neither would I have reported it to AG Loretta Lynch! Instead, I would have reported it to one of the oversight committees in Congress, which means any investigation would have gone absolutely NO WHERE after repeated hearings! And yet, the members of Congress don’t understand why We The American People are so FURIOUS!
11th, you are a nutcase or you are just blowing stinky smoke out your backside.
What do you have against Russia? How about someone from England? France? Germany?
The Left really loved the Communist, Atheist Soviet Union but they hate non-Communist Christian Russia. WHY???
The Soviet Communist State was Atheist but after the fall of the Communist State thousands of Christian missionaries went to Russia to share the gospel, whereas prior to the fall they were forbidden.
Russia is now a Christian State and the Russian Orthodox Church is very strong. Putin himself is a professing Christian. Though his father was a strict Communist and atheist, his mother was a Christian and taught the Christian faith to her son.
Don’t believe the US MSM propaganda, but search the truth for yourself.
If I am to abandon the MSM interpretation of Russia, I would REALLY like to know the source of your contrary information, in case I decide to fill the vacuum created by abandoning my slavish devotion to the MSM.
The Democrats always require FACTS if someone dares to utter something against one of their own. BUT, if the utterance is against someone NOT of their own, any deranged utterance from any diseased “brain” will do.
