Donald Trump May Have Helped His Son Lie About Russia Contact Meeting Last Year

Donald Trump Jr. was interrogated by the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday regarding his involvement in an event in this Trump-Russia saga, one that occurred at Trump Tower last summer during the campaign. Members of Trump’s inner circle met with Russian officials; when the nation heard about the meeting, Trump Jr. claimed it was about an “adoption program” and not a campaign issue. Because, of course, if he says it’s not about the campaign, then he’s totally not lying, right?

Of course not, you knew better. Trump Jr. lied about the point of the meeting in his statement. Instead of discussing an “adoption program,” they were negotiating an exchange – the Russian government would get information back that was stolen from them, and they would give “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. Well, now it has been revealed that Donald Trump Sr. might have had a hand in writing the deceptive statement. He helped lie about the point of the meeting with Russian officials to the American people.

So, when Donald Trump Jr. was asked during his interrogation about the incident, he would not answer the questions due to a sort of attorney-client privilege? Ranking member Adam Schiff (D-CA) spoke to Rachel Maddow on her MSNBC show about the claim that simply doesn’t make sense.

“[Trump Jr.] answered the overwhelming majority of our questions. There was one significant area though where he declined to answer,” said Schiff. “He acknowledged having discussed the June 9th meeting and the emails that went into establishing that meeting after those emails became public. He acknowledged discussing that matter with his father, but refused to answer questions about that discussion on the basis of a claim of attorney-client privilege. In my view, there was no attorney-client privilege that protects a discussion between father and son.”

So much is wrong here. As far as the world is aware, the Trumps are not lawyers and they certainly aren’t each other’s lawyers. There is no such thing as father-son privilege, and with the growing list of random claims that the president can apparently get away with, there’s no telling what else the Trumps will say to attempt to keep themselves out of trouble in the eyes of the law. The beautiful thing is that we know absolutely know without a shadow of a doubt that Trump Jr. has something to hide. The next task – discovering what that is.
