Donald Trump Jr Releases ‘Russia Email’ Chain – New York Times Forced To Eat Their Words

Without any actual knowledge or proof, the New York Times reported about a chain of emails between Donald Trump Jr and a Russian lawyer. Donald Trump Jr released the emails and gave a statement regarding the issue.

The first email was written in June of 2016 by publicist Rob Goldstone, who spoke about the “Crown prosecutor of Russia” and was said to have some official documents that would somehow incriminate Hillary Clinton and her connection to Russia. The person in Russia also stated that the information would be of use to Donald Trump Jr’s father, Donald Trump.

The email also said, “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”

The New York Times reported about the first email on Monday, even though no one had actually seen the email and were relying on people who had “knowledge of the email.” One could only presume the three people that the Times said gave them this information, was from one of the intelligence committees in Congress.

Tuesday morning the Times reported that they actually possessed the email in question, only AFTER Donald Trump Jr had made the email available to the public.

When Donald Trump Jr released the emails he included a statement that said he believed the lawyer from Russia had “Political Opposition Research” on Hillary Clinton, and that the meeting was held way before the “current Russian fever was in vogue.” Donald Trump Jr also stated that the lawyer he spoke with “had no information to provide and wanted to talk about adoption policy and the Magnitsky Act.”

The email in question is no “smoking gun” and doesn’t include any reference to collusion between Russia and his father, Donald Trump.
