So, back on the front page, more news about the trump spy organization

High-ranking members of President Donald Trump’s campaign met with a Russian lawyer who has clear ties to the Kremlin merely two weeks after he clinched the Republican nomination for president. The meeting, which was revealed by the New York Times, was organized by Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., and was held at Trump Tower in Manhattan with the presence of then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and now senior adviser. The Times summarizes why this previously undisclosed meeting is so significant:

While President Trump has been dogged by revelations of undisclosed meetings between his associates and Russians, this episode at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016, is the first confirmed private meeting between a Russian national and members of Mr. Trump’s inner circle during the campaign. It is also the first time that his son Donald J. Trump Jr. is known to have been involved in such a meeting.
The meeting involved Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, whose husband was once a member of the Russian government and is known for opposing the Magnitsky Act, which blacklists suspected Russian human rights abusers. The law so angered the Russian government that it retaliated by ending American adoptions of Russian children. That was purportedly what the meeting was about, according to Trump Jr.

“It was a short introductory meeting. I asked Jared and Paul to stop by. We primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children that was active and popular with American families years ago and was since ended by the Russian government, but it was not a campaign issue at the time and there was no follow up,” Trump Jr. said in a statement to the Times. “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.”

That statement marked quite a change in tune from an interview back in March, when Trump Jr. told the Times he hadn’t participated in any meetings with Russian nationals involving the campaign. “Did I meet with people that were Russian? I’m sure, I’m sure I did,” he said at the time. “But none that were set up. None that I can think of at the moment. And certainly none that I was representing the campaign in any way, shape or form.”

Except the likes of hillary and Bo believe Usa citizen''s get brought closer together by having a common enemy and in the demo's eyes thats russia.
And if {the media} are the demo's puppets then the demo's get more followers.
So it pays to have a common enemy and almost every human being ive met feels better about themselves when they look down apon others.
Racism and religion was built on this .
Trump wants iran and nth korea to heel.Hillary lost /build a bridge and get over it,in a couple more years vote for dem's.
All the problems are caused by govt's in the first place.

Trump jr' only took the meeting because he was promised harmful information about Hillary, two weeks after Trump won his party's nomination to run for the GOP as a presidential candidate .




From one day to the next, Donald Trump Jr. is suddenly remembering a lot more details about a meeting he had with a Russian lawyer with close ties to the Kremlin mere weeks after his father clinched the Republican nomination for president.

The New York Times had already revealed the existence of the June 9, 2016 meeting on Saturday. But then on Sunday the paper went further and revealed the motivation for the meeting, which was also attended by then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. It turns out President Donald Trump’s eldest son only agreed to meet with the lawyer after she promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton and her campaign for the presidency.

In a statement, Trump Jr. failed to confirm that he was promised information that would be damaging to Clinton before he sat down with Natalia Veselnitskaya. Instead, he said he was asked to have the meeting by someone he knew from the 2013 Miss Universe pageant who claimed to have information that could be helpful to the campaign. It was when the meeting began and pleasantries were exchanged that the attorney told him that “she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Ms. Clinton.”


Yet the information was much a do about nothing. “Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered,” Trump Jr. said. “It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information.” It was then that Veselnitskaya allegedly turned the conversation to the adoption of Russian children by U.S. citizens, which Moscow stopped as retaliation for a law that blacklists Russian officials tied to human rights abuses.

“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,” Trump Jr said. “I interrupted and advised her that my father was not an elected official, but rather a private citizen, and that her comments and concerns were better addressed if and when he held public office.” A day earlier, Trump Jr. had made no mention of Clinton, only saying that the meeting was mostly about adoptions of Russian children by U.S. citizens.


President Trump was "not aware of and did not attend" the meeting, Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Trump's legal team, said.

The Washington Post talked to Rob Goldstone, a music publicist who is close to Trump Jr. and claims one of his Russian clients had requested that he arrange the meeting with Trump Jr., which he attended with Veselnitskaya. Although he wouldn’t reveal who the client was, he did say that Veselnitskaya wanted to discuss adoptions. “Once she presented what she had to say, it was like, ‘Can you keep an eye on it? Should [Trump] be in power, maybe that’s conversation that he may have in the future?’ ” Goldstone said.

Goldstone works as a manager for Emin Agalarov, a Russian pop star who told Forbes earlier this year that he had an ongoing relationship with the Trump family even after the election. President Trump knows Agalarov—he even guest starred in his 2013 music video for “In Another Life.”

The false Russia Narrative. A true measure of insanity.

lets just FACT Check the Ukrainian Uranium

"The Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia"

Trump significantly distorts the uranium deal in question by calling it "the Bill and Hillary deal."

In 2010, Hillary Clinton, as secretary of state, was one of nine federal agency heads to sign off on Russia’s purchase of a controlling stake in Uranium One, an international mining company headquartered in Canada with operations in several U.S. states. It was part of a regular process for approving international deals involving strategic assets, such as uranium, that could have implications for national security. Uranium One’s U.S. mines produced about 11 percent of the country’s total uranium production in 2014, according to Oilprice.com.

But even with its control of Uranium One, Russia cannot export the material from the United States. Russia was likely more interested in Uranium One’s assets in Kazakhstan, the world’s largest uranium producer.

As PolitiFact and others have detailed, some investors with an interest in making the Uranium One deal go through have a long-time relationship with Bill Clinton and have donated to the Clinton Foundation. But there’s no concrete evidence those relationships or donations helped make the deal go through. Most of the donations occurred before Hillary Clinton could have known she would become secretary of state. And again, the secretary of state was one of nine agency heads that had input into the final decision, which ultimately lay with President Barack Obama.

The quid pro quo is obvious. Except if one refuses to see it. If Trump had done this, tell us your head would not explode.

Let's not mix fiction with non-fiction, everyday Master Donald does something incriminating, be it RICO or emoluments or just being a Russian spy.

At this point Master Donald is in full damage control mode, anything to distract attention away from all his failures will buy him time to steal more tax payers money.

Master Donald was in the building at the time of the meeting, soon, he will be placed in the room at the time of the meeting.

Jr Master Donald only released his account of email's after he was told they were also being studied by the news media, or he would still be denying any relationship whatsoever with Russia and Vlad.

This failure of coverup operations by Master Donald's fellow spy's is just coming into the light, it's all going to be found out, all gong to be uncovered, all going to be brought into the courts of the United States, and these spy's committing treason will be swiftly dealt with.

Do you need some delusional freedom fries with your delusional personal nothing burger?

Saw a blurb about how Susan Rice was supposed to testify before congress and has now cancelled. The subtext being, she has lawyered up and they are going to have to subpoena her. Pretty strong indication that she broke the law and knows it, and she is not going to be able to wiggle out.

And while the media is still trying to get blood out of the rock that is the Trump Jr. meeting, real signs of crime are being uncovered and ignored by the Media.

This would be regarding the unmasking of Flynn. This appears to have been done illegally. We'll be finding out soon.
