On Monday, a former Clinton administration White House staffer said that a source close to the FBI’s Russia collusion investigation told him that Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was recorded.
Donald Trump Jr. has admitted that he met with Natalia Vaselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer who offered information that could be helpful to his father’s campaign, in June of 2016. After news of this information broke there was no way of knowing exactly what took place during their meeting, but now Claude Taylor says that a knowledgable source on the FBI investigation into possible collusion between the Trump administration and Russia shared with him that the meeting was being watched and recorded.
A source with knowledge of the investigation tells me that IC had “ears on” Russian lawyer. The meeting was recorded. Donald, Jr is toast.

The response to this bombshell Taylor shared on his Twitter account erupted immediately. Here are just a few of the reactions:

Of couse, why would Jr. Admit to convo if not taped and why would Trump have cried that “Obama” tapped his phones? They all know!!!

It’s too easy. “Maryland woman sees Donald Trump face in toast, immediately throws away.”

The information falls in line with everything about the FBI’s ongoing investigation into Russian collusion and the content of Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting might just be the nail in the impeachment coffin Donald Trump bought long before he managed to win the presidency while losing the popular vote.
For a family that insists any hint of collusion with Russia during the 2016 election is ridiculous “fake news,” there is a suspiciously long list of Trump campaign and administration members who met with Russian officials while Trump’s presidential campaign was underway. This could be the key to putting Trump back in his proper place, which is anywhere far away from White House. and perhaps even in a federal penitentiary. At the rate things seem to be going, he might even have some neighbors he knows, like Don Jr.
