Don Jr asked Russians "if they got anything on Hillary"

Witness tells Senate Judiciary Committee that Don Jr asked Russians ‘if they got anything on Hillary’

A Russian who attended the meeting told Senate investigators that Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin gave Trump Jr. a lead at the June 9, 2016, meeting about an overhyped Clinton-Wall Street scandal.

Ike Kaveladze — an employee of Aras Agalarov, Trump’s partner on the 2013 Miss Universe contest — told the Senate committee that Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner lost patience with the Russians and asked them to get to the point.

“After those words, Mr. Trump asked both Ms. Veselnitskaya and — Trump Jr. Ms. Veselnitskaya and Akhmetshin, asked if they got anything on Hillary,” Kaveladze testified, “and to which Mr. Akhmetshin responded, ‘Why don’t you do your own research on her? We gave you the idea,’ and continued talking about the Magnitsky Act.”

Trump Jr. told the Russians he was too busy with the campaign to look into the story they proposed, but he offered to discuss possible changes to the Magnitsky Act if his father won the election, according to Kaveladze.

2. He's another con man following in his father's footsteps...

even looks like his hairline is receding and he'll probably start doing the same hairdo as daddies.

4. Treason

"Trump Jr. told the Russians he was too busy with the campaign to look into the story they proposed,
but he offered to discuss possible changes to the Magnitsky Act if his father won the election, according
to Kaveladze."

5. Explosive, but still a smoke screen

Trump taking $1 Billion from China in return for helping a Chinese company at the expense of American companies is insanely damaging. 2500 pages released to take the focus off the Trump corruption scandal.

6. I don't believe a word of it

The Russian's testimony sounds like it was written for him by a bunch of lawyers. They carefully avoided self-incrimination and barely toed the line with their accusations against Trump, Jr. and Kushner.

What really went down at that meeting will come out eventually, and it won't be reflective of this exchange, I bet.

Russians AND Trump, Jr. and Kushner conspired. That meeting was about Hillary's emails, and a quid pro quo was requested and granted on both sides.
