Here is the "acquaintance" Don said "suggested" the meeting.

The "acquaintance" who set up the meeting but Don says he ddi not know who it was with or what the topic was before the meeting.

Rob Goldstone is now admitting to the New York Times that he’s the one who arranged the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and the Kremlin attorney.
Goldstone is a known acquaintance of Donald Trump Jr.

But political operative Scott Dworkin has already found a photograph of Donald Trump Sr, his longtime attorney Michael Cohen, and Goldstone socializing together:

Dedicated to the wee lil Donny, following in his father's footsteps.


Here is the story behind how Junior's meeting leaked out.

Jared did not fill out his disclosure forms for security clearance adequately, as in chunks of info missing, so Feinstein and Grassley, who over see clearance in the Judiciary Comm., challenged his security clearance in a letter to the WH, requesting his complete info.
This was a few weeks ago. The letter was posted online.

Paul Manafort did not file the required info about contact with Russians during the campaign, but has since done so, and the meeting was in the filings.There is credible suspicion that he did the paperwork like Flynn did, AFTER being questioned by FBI and other investigators.
So, the meeting was finally known.

In March,the NYTimes asked Don Jr., bout any foreign contacts, he denied any, then.

but he is still lying. HE says “I was asked to attend the meeting by an acquaintance, but was not told the name of the person I would be meeting with beforehand.”

But Kushner says, same article, "this meeting with a Russian person, which he briefly attended at the request of his brother-in-law Donald Trump Jr. "
and Manafort's lawyers says. ."Mr. Manafort, the former campaign chairman, also recently disclosed the meeting, and Donald Trump Jr.’s role in organizing it,"

so, Manfort and Kushner have thrown DonJr under the bus, and Trump, who was in the Tower that day, says, thru his lawyers, he knew nothing at all about it.

Basically, here's Trump Jr.'s excuse for the Russian meeting:

‘My friends were wearing masks and they invited me to go to the bank with them, so I did, but I had no idea it was a bank robbery.’


Trump’s Son Met With Russian Lawyer After Being Promised Damaging Information on Clinton

The Times reported the existence of the meeting on Saturday. But in subsequent interviews, the advisers and others revealed the motivation behind it.

President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., was promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton before agreeing to meet with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign, according to three advisers to the White House briefed on the meeting and two others with knowledge of it.

The meeting was also attended by his campaign chairman at the time, Paul J. Manafort, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Mr. Manafort and Mr. Kushner only recently disclosed the meeting, though not its content, in confidential government documents described to The New York Times.

His first comments to The Times denied anything about Clinton. Now he is slowly telling more and more as he figures out his lies aren't working.










Outgoing ethics chief accuses Reince Priebus of making explicit threat to silence his complaints

Outgoing Director of the Office of Government Ethics Walter Shaub Jr. accused White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus of making a “fairly explicit threat” in an attempt to quell criticism of President Donald Trump’s refusal to divest from his businesses.

During a Sunday interview on ABC’s This Week, host George Stephanopoulos recalled that Priebus had warned Shaub to “be careful” speaking out after Trump announced that he would not sell his assets or place them in a blind trust as recent presidents have done.

“Did White House pressure have anything to do with your decision to resign?” Stephanopoulos asked.

“I think the fairly explicit threat from Reince Priebus really is emblematic of how the interactions with the White House have been since the beginning of this administration,” Shaub explained, adding that he was not “pushed out.”
