Krauthammer: Trump Jr.'s 'Bungled Collusion Is Still Collusion'

16 July 2017

He hadn't been previously recognized as being involved in the Trump Tower meeting in NY, which it is believed was arranged as part of an attempt by the Russian government to collude with the Republican campaign.

According to John Butters, senior analyst at FactSet, earnings per share were projected to climb by 6.5 in the quarter of April-June, but said the actual increase could go above 9 percent.

The New York Times broke the news last weekend that Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort had met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower during the summer of 2016. Rob Goldstone, the British music publicist who represents a Russian pop star with ties to Trump and helped arrange the meeting, also told the AP he was in on the meeting.

The digital operations director in President Donald Trump's campaign said Friday he's been called to meet with the House Intelligence Committee this month on the panel's investigation of potential Russian electoral interference. They had been told that Veselnitskaya was a "Russian government lawyer". No additional names have been provided. "He told me specifically he was not working for the Russian government, and in fact laughed when I asked him that question". Four other individuals reportedly attended the meeting.

"If it's what you say I love it", the younger Trump wrote in an email to Mr. Goldstone prior to meeting with Ms. Veselnitskaya and company.

At first he said it was about Russian President Vladimir Putin's ban on Americans adopting Russian children.

NBC News said representatives for Kushner and Manafort declined to comment, but that a lawyer for Donald Trump Jr. said he had spoken to the lobbyist.

The slow drip of information since then has been another fascinating study in the failure of the Trump administration to be transparent and truthful.

"This could be a good issue to expose how the DNC is accepting bad money", he recalled her saying. The user found that the filter was evolving to find and delete even altered references to that sentence from Trump Jr.'s emails.

"They couldn't wait for the meeting to end", he added.

This week Trump Jr. revealed that he attended the meeting because he had been promised some incriminating information about Trump's opponent, Hillary Clinton.

When asked about whether he had concerns, knowing what he knows now, Futerfas responded: "I have absolutely no concerns about what was said in that meeting". He said he's willing to talk with the Senate Judiciary Committee, whose chairman has pressed the Justice Department about why Akhmetshin has not registered as a foreign agent.

There is lying, and then there is what Fox News's Eric Bolling did when he reversed the facts of the Russian Federation story to claim that it was really Hillary Clinton who was colluding with Russian Federation to get dirt on Trump.
