Donald Trump Jr.: Meeting with Russia lawyer ‘went nowhere but had to listen

Donald Trump Jr. on Monday defended his meeting with a Russian lawyer last summer as something that any person in his position would have done.

 

“Obviously I’m the first person on a campaign to ever take a meeting to hear info about an opponent… went nowhere but had to listen,” Trump tweeted Monday morning.

Obviously I’m the first person on a campaign to ever take a meeting to hear info about an opponent… went nowhere but had to listen.

The New York Times reported that Trump Jr. was “promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton” if he met with a “Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer” on June 9, 2016 meeting. The meeting included Trump Jr., Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

 

“I was asked to have a meeting by an acquaintance I knew from the 2013 Miss Universe pageant with an individual who I was told might have information helpful to the campaign,” Trump Jr. said in an earlier statement. “I was not told her name prior to the meeting. I asked Jared and Paul to attend, but told them nothing of the substance.”

 

Trump Jr. said the woman offered them unusable information about Russian-connected individuals having donated to the Democratic National Committee and to Clinton.

 

“Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information,” Trump Jr. said.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.
