And So, Donald Trump, Jr. Met With Russian Attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya to Get Dirt on Hillary
President Trump admitted Donald Trump, Jr. met with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower to get dirt on the Clinton campaign. The media is ecstatic. Congressman Adam Schiff has surfaced after a summer hiatus screaming “Collusion! Collusion! Collusion!” Which leads in the media’s eyes to impeachment and indictment. So they hope. Let me get this straight. The Clinton Campaign and Democratic National Committee retained a lawyer through his law firm, Perkins Coie, to hire Fusion GPS to hire Christopher Steele, a British former agent, to compile a dossier on Donald Trump with information from Russians. About $10 million dollars followed this path. And that’s OK? The FBI was interested to paying for the Steele Dossier. And that’s OK? But Donald Trump, Jr. should be packing for jail? Donald Trump’s mistake was based on the Trump Campaign inexperience and naivete. He should not have met directly with the Russian lawyer, nor, indeed, left any finger prints on the contact. Instead, he should have the actions taken by third parties. It’s called “plausible deniability.” The meeting was not illegal. Collusion is not illegal. Lying to the media is not a crime. Lying about it is stupid. Nothing can be kept secret in D.C., especially when the media is trying to scrape up any dirt it can on the Trumps. The Steele Dossier was the primary source for four FISA warrants against Carter Page to indirectly get info on Donald Trump and the Trump Campaign. And that’s OK? The Steele Dossier was the primary source for the initial rumors of the Trump-Russia Collusion and the four FISA warrants against Carter Page eventhough not verified. Christopher Steele has even said much of it probably isn’t true. And that’s OK? Opposition research is the norm these days. Opposition research is a euphemism for getting dirt, any way possible, on an opponent. The Clintons have pulled some sleazy campaigns, with the aid of the media, such as vicious attacks on the women accusing Governor Clinton of sexual assaults, in their careers. And that’s OK?
