    OMG!! Trump lawyer BLAMES SECRET SERVICE for allowing JR's meeting with Russians

    This is Reuters folks. As 'headlined' by RAW STORY. Doesn't change shit! The SS let it happen so it couldn't be NEFARIOUS says Jr's. lawyer. I wonder if the lawyer knows that SS are bound by a very stringent NON-DISCLOSURE agreement. I'll answer that myself. It is SECULOW, of course he knows. 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...

    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....

    Sounds like a legitimate question to me.

    If this Russian lawyer and her associates truly were hostile foreign agents committing acts of war on our country (to coin phrases used to describe them by the liberal democrat posters here on this board) why then didn't the secret service act to protect the President's family from them?

    And JUNIOR says, let them in. As long as they don't have guns or knives, they're coming in.

    Junior just wanted the dirt on Clinton.

    The point is these people were not as nefarious as Trump's critics are making out - otherwise the FBI would not have been letting them waltz around the country and even giving interviews to NBC on national television about this so-called treasonous meeting.

    It's being exaggerated for ratings.

    Problem is Jr. did not get SS protection until Sept.

    So yeah, I'm finding this story more entertaining by the day as the Administrations tries new BS ways on how to "spin" it.
