Don Jr, President Trump’s eldest son, will the White House Intelligence Committee in regards to the Russian investigation. CNN first reported that the meeting will be behind closed doors. The meeting, which is scheduled for December 6th, is expected that one of the primary topics discussed during the meeting will be the nature of Trump’s involvement with the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya.
Trump Jr’s, suspicious timing in regards to the meeting with a Russian Lawyer during the 2016 election season as his father fought to win the office of the presidency, only makes it seem more plausible that the Trump Campaign may have cooperated with the Russian government in order to skew the results of the election in favor of Trump. At this point, Americans and those around the world are eager to know exactly what happened over the course of the campaign and election season. Perhaps Trump Jr.’s meeting with the White House will finally bring some of the Trump Campaign’s darkest secrets to life.
The extraordinarily suspicious timeline of events in regards potential cooperation with Russia has grown exhausting at this point, as the list of questionable, suggestive events continues to grow. Trump Jr himself revealed that he had exchanged Twitter DM’s with the WikiLeaks Twitter account for months. WikiLeaks has dumped classified documents in the past, and has repeatedly been referred to as “pro-Russian,” by the the Hillary Clinton Campaign. Trump Jr.,evident involvement with the Julian Assange affiliated organization, as well as his meeting with a Russian lawyer, both show that he was in contact with the Russians in some capacity.
Though Putin continues to claim that he did not meddle in the election, the Mueller investigation continues to push for more answers.
On Friday, Michael Flynn, Trump’s Ex- National Security Adviser, was charged with, and plead guilty to one count of making fraudulent statements to the FBI.
It’s evident that the investigations into the nature of Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election are getting closer and closer to home for Trump and his associates.
