Donald Trump Jr. and Russia — Do You Care? [POLL]
According to FOX News, emails released by Donald Trump Jr. show that he was prepared to get incriminating evidence against Hillary Clinton from those tied to the Russian government.
Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday released what he said was the “entire email chain” of his conversations setting up a disputed meeting with a Russian attorney, showing what appeared to be an offer to provide information that would “incriminate” Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”
The president’s eldest son seemed to readily accept the offer, according to the messages. The email chain — purported to be between Trump Jr. and publicist Rob Goldstone — occurred in June 2016. Goldstone went on to set up the controversial June 9 meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, whom he identified in the emails at one point as “The Russian government attorney who is flying over from Moscow.”
In the email chain, Goldstone refers to Russia’s government supporting the Trump campaign. Donald Trump Jr. and the White House have denied any wrongdoing. The emails are sure to continue fanning the flames of the Trump/Russia collusion story and Senator John Cornyn has already called for Trump Jr. to testify.
Do you have a problem with Trump Jr. meeting with officials to get dirt on Hillary Clinton?
