Just when everyone was hoping for a break from Trump-Russia allegations, more information was “uncovered” about Donald Trump Jr. this week after it was revealed he met with a Russian lawyer during the campaign.
The mainstream media has been going crazy over Trump Jr.’s meeting with the Russian lawyer. However, Trump Jr. himself sat down for a lengthy interview with Sean Hannity, and the truth of what actually happened was revealed — absolutely nothing. (via Fox News)
The “Russia” meeting liberal media has been obsessed with was a meeting between Trump Jr. and Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer. The woman established the meeting under the guise of wanting to provide, “some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary.” According to her mediator, Rob Goldstone, it was supposedly a means for Russia to support Trump’s campaign.
Yet, once the woman met with Trump Jr., his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and Trump’s former campaign chair, it became quickly obvious that she didn’t have anything in regard to Hillary Clinton. Instead she used the opportunity to discuss the Magnitsky Act, a blacklist of Russians who have violated human rights and are not allowed into the U.S.
As liberals started holding high the banner of collusion, Trump Jr. released the email correspondence he had with Rob Goldstone and publicly revealed the details of the meeting.
Trump Jr.’s lawyers maintain that he “did nothing wrong” when seeking dirt on Hillary Clinton. They cite that he had no official role in Trump’s campaign, nor does he in the current presidential administration.
In addition, no evidence that could be used against Clinton’s campaign was obtained, making collusion claims null and void.
Even if he had obtained information, it doesn’t necessarily mean it would have been used, as his lawyer explained Monday. “At no time was there ever any understanding or commitment that he, or anyone else, would find the information, whatever it turned out to be, to be reliable, credible or of interest, or would even survive due diligence. The meeting lasted about 20 to 30 minutes, and nothing came of it.” (via Politico)
In an interview with Sean Hannity, Trump Jr. revealed he thought the supposed incriminating evidence on Hillary could be, “scandals that people were probably underreporting for a long time, so maybe it was something that had to do with one of those things. It was perhaps her involvement with the Russian government.”
It’s possible the scandals Trump Jr. was hoping to obtain information on related to her private email server, her handling of Benghazi, the dossier obtained from Russian sources, working with the media to perform better in the debates, rigging the DNC to guarantee her win in the primaries, the Clinton foundation receiving foreign funding for a birthday, or the number of other scandals she’s been involved with that we know of — and of course the ones we don’t.
This seems like just another fake scandal to take down President Trump by going through his devoted son. Do you agree? Make your voice heard in the poll below!
In the end, Trump Jr.’s lawyer put it best, “The bottom line is that Donald Jr. did nothing wrong.”
Considering the scandals that Hillary Clinton has been proven to be a part of, it is amazing that Democrats have turned a blind eye to obvious scandal in favor of incriminating Trump without evidence. Liberals and Democrats have sacrificed truth in exchange for a narrative they believe will lead to Trump’s impeachment, which they’ve been hoping for since November.
Unfortunately for the left, there is no foundation, no evidence to back up their claims. At what point will they let Russia go and begin focusing on bigger issues?
