Donald Trump Jr.'s stunningly incriminating statement to the New York Times

Trump Jr.'s statement in response to the NY Times story is actually worse then the story he was responding to, because Trump Jr. is saying that he went to meet with the Russians with the expectation that they would provide the Trump campaign with information on Hillary Clinton. From his perspective, he was looking to collude. His defense is that his collusion was not all that helpful. Amazing.

Right now, the Trump family has put Julius And Ethel Rosenberg to shame in terms of colluding with the Russians.

"In a statement on Sunday, Donald Trump Jr. said he had met with the Russian lawyer at the request of an acquaintance. 'After pleasantries were exchanged,' he said, 'the woman stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Ms. Clinton. Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information.'

"He said she then turned the conversation to adoption of Russian children and the Magnitsky Act, an American law that blacklists suspected Russian human rights abusers. The law so enraged President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia that he retaliated by halting American adoptions of Russian children.

"'It became clear to me that this was the true agenda all along and that the claims of potentially helpful information were a pretext for the meeting,' Mr. Trump said.

Read that last part again: "the claims of potentially helpful information were a pretext for the meeting." Trump Jr. confirmed that he went into the meeting expecting to receive information from the Russian lawyer that could hurt Clinton. That is a breathtaking admission.
