Donald Trump Jr may be a lot of things, but I’d wager what he is best known for is honesty. That’s why it’s no surprise how little time it took for him to come out and tell the REAL story of WHY he met a Russian attorney during the 2016 Presidential election.
According to Donald Jr’s statement, the attorney had contacted him through a friend and promised him dirt on Hillary Clinton.
Donald Jr accepted the offer, figuring it was worth seeing what she had to offer. He arrived, pleasantries were exchanged, then she got down to business. In Jr’s own words:
“…the woman stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Ms. Clinton. Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered.”
After a few moments, Donald Trump Jr was led to a simple conclusion,
“It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information.”
Yep. Absolutely nothing. Instead, it was a bid to get Trump to agree to remove the Magnitsky Act, which blacklists suspected Russian human rights abusers, and end the adoption ban of Russians being allowed to adopt Americans and vice versa.
Trump Jr even said,
“It became clear to me that this was the true agenda all along and that the claims of potentially helpful information were a pretext for the meeting.”
So there you have it. Like CNN’s Van Jones says, this whole Russia thing is a big “Nothing Burger”. So help get Donald Jr’s story out by sharing this with your friends and family.
