Every now and then the benefit of having decades of business experience comes in handy for me when discussing politics. Tack on the lessons I’ve learned from my step-father, the police detective who taught me all about interviewing a suspect, and I come away knowing Don Jr. is telling the truth.
Don Trump Jr. appeared on Hannity this evening to discuss the bombshell story concerning his meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016. Don Jr was under the impression he was to receive opposition research about Hillary Clinton. It turned out he received no information and the meeting was a waste of time.
When watching a person be questioned in the way Hannity questioned Don Jr tonight, I take note of the body language and eye movement of the person being interviewed. Don Jr. was consistent in his body language, even during the tough questions. He never shifted in his seat, and he never looked down to the left (which would indicate he was being dishonest).
More importantly than his body language, he said something very important about the meeting that took place at Trump Tower.
Anyone with business experience knows that when a meeting is critically important, the most important people in the company show up. In this case, Don Jr thought there would be important information, and so he invited Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort.
Don Jr. said the meeting lasted merely 20 minutes and Jared left a few minutes into the discussion. Meanwhile, Manafort was on the phone the entire time. This proves to me that the information shared was nonsense.
If the information being conveyed was important — if the information about Hillary was critical — Manafort would have hung up his phone and Kushner would have never left the room. The fact that Don Jr. stayed in the room shows he was being polite to his friend who set up the meeting.
Unfortunately for us Trump supporters, there is one thing about this meeting which will force the story to remain in the headlines. Opposition research or not, the liberals will continue to plug away on the fact that Don Jr. was willing to meet with someone who is Russian and who claimed to have information about Hillary. As I noted a few days ago, special counsel Mueller will use this story to dig deeper into the Trump campaign and the 2016 election.
In short, as I said weeks ago, Trump’s kids are the new targets of the MSM.
