    Did Donald Attempt to Collude

    I always figured Trump Sr. was too stupid to really do so, but is Jr. taking the fall for the White House? You have 3 top Trump guys knowingly going to a meeting where they would be offered information from the Russian government.

    All three lied repeatedly about meeting with Russians. Jr seems to have changed his story 4 times regarding this particular incident.

    Did the president know about it beforehand? Are the actions of his sperm,t he guy tapping his daughter, and Manafort all to cover up for Trump?

    What's really odd here is this whole thing only became public because Kusher filled out a form last week about meeting with foreign interests during the campaign. Otherwise we might never have known.

    Not correct, a reporter has been working on the story for over a year. He had the emails. It was going to come out anyway. Kushner's disclosure was probably a result of some questioning by newspaper editors he received about the gathering of a story surrounding that meeting trying to confirm some information.

    PS there are rumors that emails exist from Assange that suggest he and Donald Jr have had some contact. Holy Shit if these are true it would certainly be the nail in the coffin for the Trump Administration.

    Awful convenient Jr makes the text the day after Kushner fills out the report.

    I am not much of one when it comes to conspiracy theories, especially with the Trump's and their inability to get out of their own way, but it struck me as odd that even though the story was emerging Jr. was so proactive in suddenly coming clean, laying out the boundaries of whom knew what at what time.

    I agree, the timing of all this is bizarre. I keep thinking something else is coming forward.

    I think that is what everyone was counting on. Who would look up who Natalia Veselnitskaya was.

    Well in truth she attended hearings during the Obama administration. So she is actually well known in DC as she represented Russian interests. Its why quite a few right wing sites are showing her photo at Michael McFauls hearings in 2016. They are claiming "Obama set Trump up." But she is already known to insiders on both sides of the aisle.

    There wasn't really much of an option to come clean. The NYT was calling Trumpjr to get a comment the meeting and later the email.

    Denying the meeting or the emails would have been much worse.

    What other explanation would they have.

    If this incident happened by itself, they would have a better claim...but not with all the other incidents and Trump's general attitude towards it all, the claim rings hollow and desperate.
