    You are way too eager to dismiss people as liars. It's a legitimate question based on a reasonable assumption. Not a lie.
    Because the SS doesn't waste time or money on people they are not currently protecting.

    This is a clear cut case of lying on the part of the lawyer who is part of this administration.

I guess the whole detail could have said, FUCK NO and resigned and gone to 'authorities'? (Who mind you? MUELLER?) Of course did JUNIOR'S detail even know who these people are??

    Let me repeat...




    Trump lawyer defends Don Jr. meeting and blames Secret Service for allowing it

    Donald Trump Jr speaking at the 2016 RNC Convention in Cleveland that awarded his father the Republican Party nomination for President.
    DON'T MISS STORIES. FOLLOW RAW STORY!


    One of President Donald Trump’s personal lawyers defended a meeting that the president’s son had with Russian nationals during the 2016 campaign, suggesting the fact that the Secret Service allowed the meeting showed it was not “nefarious.”

    “Well, I wonder why the Secret Service, if this was nefarious, why the Secret Service allowed these people in. The president had Secret Service protection at that point, and that raised a question with me,” Jay Sekulow, a member of Trump’s legal team, said on Sunday on the ABC news program “This Week.”

    Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., acknowledged meeting with a Russian lawyer in New York City during the 2016 presidential campaign after he was told she might have damaging information about his father’s rival, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

    According to emails released by Trump Jr. last week, he eagerly agreed to meet the woman, who he was told was a Russian government lawyer. The woman, Natalia Veselnitskaya, said she is a private lawyer and denies having Kremlin ties.

    On Friday, NBC News reported that a lobbyist who was once a Soviet counter-intelligence officer participated in the meeting, which was also attended by Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and the president’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort.

    Sekulow’s comments drew quick criticism, including from Frances Townsend, who advised Republican former president George W. Bush on homeland security.“Ok let’s try to deflect blame & throw those in @secretService who protect @POTUS @realDonaldTrump @FLOTUS & family under the bus,” she said on Twitter.

    The Secret Service’s mission is to protect the physical safety of the U.S. president. The agency also provides protection for presidential candidates, though its role in vetting people who meet with the candidates is limited to ensuring that they do not pose a physical threat....

    Everyone KNOWS we are fucking idiots. Why did you allow us to do such stupid things,? YOU're the SMART ones after all!!!!........is essentially what he said while doing his best to keep a straight face.

    TOO fucking funny!

    Because the President's family was doing exactly what these hostile foreign agents wanted them to do, so obviously they were in no physical danger from them?

    That doesn't even pass the smell test.

    You make a fair point about Jr. not getting SS protection until Sept. - if that's true - but the President did have SS detail at that time so it would only be natural for him to assume they would be looking out for his son as well. So to assume he's lying in this situation would be unfair in my judgement.
    OH sorry, it was just stupidity and not lying.
    Well, OK then... I guess...

    Like i said - The president did have a SS security detail at the time. So it is reasonable to assume that he believed they would be watching out for his son as well.

    I seriously doubt that the President - especially considering he is a newcomer to politics and this this his first dealing with the SS - would be up on all the details of Secret Service protocol. So to assume he is lying - simply because he is questioning why the SS allowed his son to attend this meeting if these people were supposedly so nefarious - is unfair.
    Gee, then I guess we should not have elected a bumbling, inexperienced nit-wit to such an important position, right?

    So yeah, I'm finding this story more entertaining by the day as the Administrations tries new BS ways on how to "spin" it.
    (I'm highlighting this little detail since you didn't). This wasn't conjecture, this was the Secret Service making a public statement.

    Whoops Mr. Seculow!!
