If you truly want to understand how dirty the Trump Regime is, you must take the time to read Booman's post on who Natalia Veselnitskaya is and how she's connected to the Russian mafia and how the Russian crooks are connected to the Trump Administration.
New York Times reports:
Before arranging a meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer he believed would offer him compromising information about Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump Jr. was informed in an email that the material was part of a Russian government effort to aid his father’s candidacy, according to three people with knowledge of the email.
Every single person who has been in top positions in running presidential campaigns, Republican and Democratic, have unequivocally stated that if a foreign agent approaches a campaign promising opposition dirt on the opposing candidate, YOU CALL THE FBI.
And several people are calling what Donald Trump, Jr., and his cohorts did, treasonous.
GOP Campaign Veterans Say They Wouldn’t Have Met With Foreign Agent Offering Dirt
“Senior presidential campaign officials don’t take meetings with nameless people.”
WASHINGTON ― Veterans of several Republican presidential campaigns say they would never have taken a meeting like the one attended by Donald Trump Jr. last year in June, just weeks before his father officially became the GOP presidential nominee.
Trump Jr. said he met with Kremlin-linked lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya after she claimed to possess damaging information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump’s Democratic opponent.
The president’s son added in a statement that he did not know the identity of Veselnitskaya prior to the meeting and that he asked then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and son-in-law Jared Kushner, now a senior White House adviser, to attend but “told them nothing of the substance” about the get-together.
Trump Jr. and other White House allies on Monday defended the sit-down by attempting to characterize it as a normal campaign exercise ― as if every presidential campaign were willing to accept help from a nameless foreign agent.
Conservative writer, David Frum:
The president Russia helped to install will not punish Russia for helping to install him.
The question now turns to the rest of the American political system. Senate Majority Leader McConnell warned Obama against taking action against Russia during the election. Whatever is said of Obama’s decisions, one of Obama’s motives for inaction was the knowledge that congressional Republicans would take Trump’s and Russia’s side if he tried to act.
