Last night The Washington Post put out a story claiming that President Trump’s advisors had put together a strategy to get out in front of the story regarding Don Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer in 2016. Knowing the story was about to run in The New York Times, the team wanted to release a statement sharing every aspect of the meeting.
But according to The Washington Post, President Trump intervened and said, ‘No.” He did not want the full story to be told. Thus, he allegedly scripted the first statement for Don Jr.
The statement was limited, at best. As we now know, the statement revealed nothing about the true reason for the meeting, which was to gain information about Hillary Clinton. You can read the full details regarding The Washington Post story by clicking here.
Obviously, with all that’s been taking place this week, the “Russia collusion” storyline has taken a back seat. The hiring of and firing of Scaramucci, North Korea firing missiles, the tension between Trump and Sessions, the hiring of Gen Kelly… nobody is talking about Russia. So, The Washington Post puts out a “Russia story” that offers nameless sources.
DML suggests in his report, “the story is designed to test Gen Kelly and Trump because it suggests the leaks will continue as they were. Either way, the story is nothing but a hit piece.”
