R’s Focused on the Wrong Email Scandal in 2016
In an attempt to get ahead of the New York Times, Donald Trump, Jr. released the email chain related to his meeting with a Russian attorney last year. Either he didn’t read the chain or he thought his statement would prevent others from reading the chain, because it is pretty clear that he wanted to take a meeting to discuss opposition research.
Oppo research is a norm in politics, just not from an enemy of the state…the state still providing Edward Snowden with asylum. In reading the chain it is difficult to take any statement made by Trump, Jr. and his attorney over the past few days seriously.
Did Anything Else Happen Today?
Looks like the world came to a grinding halt with the release of one thread of emails.
