In a recent statement to the public Donald Trump Jr. admitted on Twitter that yes, met with a Russian lawyer in which he believed had damaging information about Hillary Clinton that could benefit his father's campaign during the 2016 election.
In the now released conversation between Don Jr and the attorney he wrote, "I love it", referring to the potential of accessing the material, according to emails released Tuesday by the President’s oldest son.
The email exchange between the two shows a mutual acquaintance with ties to the Russian Attorney, music publicist Rob Goldstone, who then told the son of candidate Donald Trump at the time that the attorney has “information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.”
Don Jr acknowledged and accepted that the information was crucial to benefitting the campaign and considered it as political opposition research. Trump Jr. expressed no hesitation in the email chain and in fact appeared enthusiastic would anyone in a similar situation.
“If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer,” Trump Jr. responded.
The attorney, Natalia Veselnitskaya, told the press Tuesday that, “the purpose of the meeting was to discuss U.S. sanctions against Russia” and that she did not have any information about the Clinton campaign.
“I never had any damaging or sensitive information about Hillary Clinton. It was never my intention to have that,” Veselnitskaya said.
The email exchange makes proves that as false or misleading as Trump Jr. set up the meeting thinking he would be speaking with the attorney who would have information meant to boost his father’s campaign, contrary to the mainstream media’s desperate attempts to use this as an opportunity to show collusion with their failed Russia narrative.
In the email chain tweeted out from Donald Trump Jr today he opened with this statement:
Trump Jr. said he was releasing the exchange “to be totally transparent.” Which is exactly what he did today by showing the context of the full conversation.
In the additional chain of emails you can see clearly the alleged Russian attorney either misled the press today or Goldstone himself misled Donald Trump Jr or was misled by the Russian attorney.
All of which makes sense considering a recent report by Jack Posobiec which suggests she may have had ties to the infamous George Soros,and possibly even been an agent to begin with in order to use this meeting as leverage in the future for possible blackmail or extortion attempts.
Donald Trump Jr. has said that the June 9, 2016, meeting at Trump Tower that also included Trump's Son-in-law Jared Kushner and campaign manager Paul Manafort, which was primarily directed as a meeting about Russian adoptions and provided no useful information about the Clinton campaign. Donald Trump did not attend the meeting, according to his son.
"As Rob Goldstone said just today in the press, the entire meeting was 'the most inane nonsense I ever heard. And was actually agitated by it,'" Trump Jr. said in the statement.
Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders said today during the press conference that President Trump applauds his son as a” high quality person” and greatly appreciated "his transparency.”
The media will attempt to spin this however Donald Trump Jr released emails today without even having to be asked, yet they were silent when Hillary Clinton deleted 33,000 emails.
