So the Trump Jr. email story came out and I’m looking for meat. Please feel free to post it if you have some. But it looks to be yet more conjecture and innuendo. As always – we could be wrong.
It sounds like a pretty typical campaign meeting to me. I can almost guarantee similar meetings (with similar shadowy figures) happened in the Clinton camp.
And some shady meetings happened between some not so shadowy figures too. Now what did Bill Clinton and AG Loretta Lynch talk about in their secret meeting at the Phoenix airport? Grandchildren! That’s right.
Last night, the New York Times dropped their latest Donald Trump Jr. “bombshell” in which they reported that 3 anonymous sources had informed them that Trump Jr. was notified in advance that the damaging information promised about Hillary Clinton was part of a Russian government effort to help his father’s presidential campaign (we covered it here: Trump Jr. Was Allegedly Told Russian Government Behind Damaging Clinton Info: NYT)
Unfortunately, another small problem has arisen for the New York Times’ new narrative this morning and it comes in the form of a exclusive interview that NBC managed to land with the now infamous Russian lawyer at the middle of this whole new scandal: Natalia Veselnitskaya. Asked directly whether she had any ties to the Russian government, Veselnitskaya had a rather simple answer for NBC: “No.”…
…To summarize where are, Rob Goldstone, the intermediary who allegedly setup the meeting between Trump Jr. and Veselnitskaya, said there was no Kremlin connection and now Veselnitskaya herself has confirmed the same. That said, 3 anonymous sources from the New York Times beg to differ. We’ll let you decide what to believe.
