Trump repeats claim that 'most politicians' would have attended Trump Jr. meeting

Source: Politico




By MADELINE CONWAY 07/17/2017 10:35 AM EDT

President Donald Trump claimed again on Monday that “most politicians” would have attended the highly scrutinized meeting his son had with a Kremlin-linked lawyer during the presidential campaign last year.

As he said last week at a news conference in Paris, Trump said on Twitter on Monday morning that “most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent.”


“That's politics!” he wrote.

The June 2016 meeting, which Donald Trump Jr. agreed to organize after he was told that a representative of the Russian government would provide the campaign with dirt on Hillary Clinton, has become a focal point of ongoing scrutiny into the president’s campaign’s relationship with Russia. Trump’s son in law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, and his then-campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, also attended.

1. Well yeah, take a look at who controls Congress and the Senate. The crooks.

McConnell and Ryan would sell a child to Putin if it meant hurting the Democrats.

That's politics... for our country.

4. This is absolutely true regarding every "Hillary Hater" out there.

The DNC and Podesta emails were from WikiLeaks and Russian operatives.

The FAKE NEWS attacks on Hillary spreading across social media were from Russian operatives.

We all knew this BEFORE the election, and only Hillary supporters dismissed all the crap - considering the source!

It didn't seem to bother anyone else.

7. His son is a politician?

His only qualification for being one is that, like his dad, he's a grifter.

Donny, you're grasping at straws.

8. OK if that's true - why did they lie about it in the first place?

They have no good answer for that!

10. Sounds like he's prepared his defense. He was probably either at that meeting, or...

...he was on speaker phone. We know he was in the building. How long will it take for his kids to learn that they're only as useful to him as Medea's kids were to her when she had them deliver the poison-laden wedding dress?

Oh, yeah. They'd have to know the literary reference. Never mind.
