In my opinion, this story about Don Jr. is losing steam real fast. Although, make no mistake, the media will keep it alive for as long as they can. Tonight, is the best example of how they will try.
Late Monday evening the liberal leaning paper put out another report about the big meeting that took place in June 2016 at Trump Tower between a Russian lawyer, Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort. Only this time they focus on the email originally sent to Don Jr. by the man who set up the meeting.
According to the Times, Don Jr. was informed in an email that the information to be shared in the meeting was part of a Russian government effort to aid Trump’s candidacy. The Times makes this claim by citing “three people with knowledge of the email.”
The man who sent the email is Rob Goldstone. He is a publicist, and the person who arranged the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower.
Here is what the Times wrote about the email:
“Mr. Goldstone’s message, as described to The New York Times by the three people, indicates that the Russian government was the source of the potentially damaging information. It does not elaborate on the wider effort by Moscow to help the Trump campaign. There is no evidence to suggest that the promised damaging information was related to Russian government computer hacking that led to the release of thousands of Democratic National Committee emails.”
The Times, in it’s never ending pursuit of destroying the Trump presidency, points out that the Justice Department and congressional investigators will be very interested in the email because they are “examining whether any of President Trump’s associates colluded with the Russian government to disrupt last year’s election.”
Goldstone denied to the Times that he had any knowledge of involvement by the Russian government in the matter. Reportedly, he told the Times it never dawned on him that the Russian government could be involved. “Never, never ever,” he said. According to the paper, Goldstone was not available for follow up questions.
Goldstone told his recollection of the meeting to the Times, who admits his account of what took place at the meeting was in sync with Don Jr’s description.
Goldstone told the Times that the Russian lawyer offered “just a vague, generic statement about the campaign’s funding and how people, including Russian people, living all over the world donate when they shouldn’t donate” before turning to her anti-Magnitsky Act arguments. He went on to tell the Times the meeting was a bust. “It was the most inane nonsense I’ve ever heard,” he said. “And I was actually feeling agitated by it. Had I, you know, actually taken up what is a huge amount of their busy time with this nonsense?”
Meanwhile, the Russian lawyer who met with Don Jr., Ms. Veselnitskayafor denied that the campaign or compromising material about Mrs. Clinton ever came up at all during the time she spent with Trump Jr.
