Donald Trump Jr didn’t do anything wrong. Someone sent him an email saying that they had dirt on Hillary. No political operation would not chase that information. The fact that Trump Jr., the son in law, Kushner, and the campaign manager, Manafort attended the meeting indicates that they didn’t see anything wrong with what they were doing.
I don’t see anything wrong with what they were doing. Someone offered dirt and they wanted to see just what kind of dirt was available. The fact that the source involved high level Russians is only incidental; if the source was identified as a one eyed fat gypsy, they still would have attended the meeting.
They were interested in the dirt not the source. Now the whole world wants to blame Hillary’s loss on an unfair advantage that Trump got from the Russians they are all excited that the source of this information was a Russian.
Here are the facts:
Trump Jr. did nothing wrong by attending this meeting.
The exchanged between Goldstone and Trump Jr. used the following language, (official documents, “Crown Prosecutor of Russia, very useful to your father, part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump). No matter how badly they want to stretch this into collusion the facts don’t support it.
The meeting never provided any dirt and was over in twenty minutes with no follow up.
There is nothing here to be ashamed of. The attackers are clinging to the fact that the Russians were named in the email and that MUST be the smoking gun.
This was a nonevent when it happened and it’s a nonevent today.
Who would you indict for this meeting and what would the charge be? The answers are no one and there are no charges.
The hoopla will die down by this weekend. After the Sunday talk shows they will find a new hoopla to play with because this one is a dud.
