Trump Jr. Meeting with Russian Lawyer Waste of Time Say Both Sides

Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his fellow Democrats committed to take President Donald Trump down are still clamoring about the meeting that took place between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya in June 2016. They are hoping beyond hope that this is proof of some sort of Russian collusion to help interfere with the election.

The meeting lasted about 20 minutes and according to the testimony of Trump Jr. and the Russians, the meeting was a complete waste of time. Trump Jr. was skeptical but met anyway under the promise of obtaining damaging information on Clinton. Veselnitskaya was hoping to get information from Trump Jr. in hopes of harming the Trump campaign.

( – Both sides came out of the June 9, 2016 meeting at Trump Tower feeling misled and disappointed, transcripts show. So why did it happen and who benefited?

Certainly, that now-famous meeting has been the main exhibit among those politicians and media outlets fanning the Russian “collusion” theory.

Donald Trump Jr. told congressional investigators he agreed to meet with a Russian lawyer, someone unknown to him, when an acquaintance (a British-born producer for a Russian musician) told him “someone had official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary Clinton and her dealings with Russia and that the information would be very useful to the campaign.” …

This is an example of the witch hunt mentality that Mueller and Democrats have, as Trump has often referred to it. After a year, Mueller and his colleagues have little to nothing with which to take Trump down, as a federal judge accused Mueller of wanting to do.
