Trump Jr. Follows Up Russia Blunder With Accidental Admission That Could Send Him To Prison

-

This morning, in an attempt to beat the New York Times to the punch, Donald Trump Jr.’s official Twitter account tweeted a statement along with email documents that appear to provide proof that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

Shortly before the New York Times story and email content were published, Donald Trump Jr. released a series of emails between himself and Rob Goldstone. In Don Jr.’s statement he said:

‘To everyone, in order to be totally transparent, I am releasing the entire email chain of my emails with Rob Goldstone about the meeting on June 9, 2016.’

Trump Jr. goes on to explain that the lawyer that he, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, along with Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser, Jared Kushner, all met with a Russian lawyer to hear the information that she had against Hillary Clinton. Trump Jr. insists that Natalia Veselnitskaya wasn’t a Russian official, however she is closely tied to the Russian government and has represented many government officials.

You can read Don Jr.’s full statement along with the emails in the tweets below:

American intelligence agencies have determined that the Russian government did attempt to sway the election in Donald Trump’s favor. So it’s no surprise that the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, along with the Justice Department, are currently investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

What this elusive information was has yet to be made public, but the intent is the part that should have the Trump administration shaking in it’s boots. Donald Trump Jr. has said that nothing fruitful came of the meeting between Kushner, Manafort, the Russian lawyer, and himself, but who can believe a guy that insisted even a suggestion of the Trump campaign working with Russia to get information on Hillary Clinton was “disgusting.” The revelation that it actually took place, and Jr. was at the helm, isn’t surprising so much as it is baffling.
