Would You Have Taken the Meeting If You Were Running for President?
Contrary to the initial statement he wrote on Don Jr.'s behalf, which said Donny's meeting with the Putin connected Russian lawyer was to talk about issues related to adopting Russian kids, the President is now admitting that the meeting was about getting dirt on Hillary. According to the President, “[m]ost politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent. That’s politics!”
IMHO that is crock. Yes, a lot of things are fair game in the rough and tumble world of presidential electoral politics. But, we are talking about being open to being helped by a hostile foreign power.
And then of course there is the question of why the Russians were so interested in helping Trump. You would think the Trumpies would see that as being a black mark on their guy. But no, winning at all costs, even if it means taking help from the enemy is all that matters. Shameful!
