Clinton calls Trump Jr.'s explanation of Russia meeting 'an absurd lie'

Source: Politico

The scramble to obfuscate the true nature of Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting last summer with a Russian attorney with ties to the Kremlin is “ridiculous” and “an absurd lie,” former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said Wednesday morning.

Trump Jr. met last summer with a Russian attorney whom he had been led to believe was in possession of negative information about Clinton sourced from the Russian government. Trump Jr. initially said that the subject of the meeting had been the adoption of Russian children by Americans but was later forced to concede that he had taken the meeting because he had been promised damaging information about his father’s general election opponent.

“It's ridiculous. It's another absurd lie to cover up what really was going on which I hope we finally uncover and understand,” Clinton told NBC’s “Today” show in her first live TV interview since last November’s election.

Trump Jr. has said that he gleaned no useful information from the meeting, which was also attended by President Donald Trump’s then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner, the president’s son in law and a top White House adviser. The White House and those connected with the Trump campaign have insisted that there was no coordination between the president’s team and the Kremlin’s efforts to meddle in last year’s election.

2. Really. I laughed out loud when I heard Jr's latest lie.

They needed to vet a woman who had been First Lady, a Senator, Secretary of State, and a previous candidate for the
Democratic nomination for President? Gimme a break.

What an arrogant little prick.

10. Hillary may be the only person on TV

who just tells the truth. She calls a lie a lie, not a "mis-statement" or a "statement at variance from the actual facts".

Trump tells lies. Just call them that.

13. What information would have come from Russia?

I don't recall the Trump campaign actually coming out with any real "dirt" on Clinton.
