      Trump, his attorneys and his Administration, have told the public a good many contradictory things about Don Junior's 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower, and today, Trump tells us that although the meeting was to get dirt on Hillary Clinton, that the meeting was "totally legal."

      President Donald Trump on Sunday denied that he is concerned that his eldest son is a target of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, insisting that his son’s actions during his presidential campaign were “totally legal.”

      “This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere,” Trump said of Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting in Trump Tower with a Kremlin-linked attorney in June 2016.

      Trump’s tweet follows recent reports that he is worried about possible legal trouble for his eldest son.

      Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to gt information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere. I did not know about it.

      So, while defending his son, he makes sure to keep his distance from anything that might implicate him, by stating that he didn't know about it.

      The president, his legal team and his son have issued a number of contradicting statements for meeting in the year since the New York Times first reported on it.

      In July 2017, Trump Jr. initially claimed the meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was about a Russian adoption issue and “not a campaign issue at the time.” A day later, he admitted that he’d agreed to sit down with Veselnitskaya after being offered dirt on his father’s political opponent, Hillary Clinton.

      .

      The Times reported last July that Trump signed off on his son’s first response about the meeting. His lawyer, Jay Sekulow, repeatedly insisted that the president was not involved in the drafting of the statement. Later that month, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said he was involved but denied a Washington Post report that claimed he personally dictated it.

      But in a January memo, Trump’s attorneys admitted that he did dictate the statement. Rudy Giuliani said in June confirmed that it’s the legal team’s “final position” that the president dictated it.

      Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow, speaking on ABC “This Week” on Sunday, attempted to downplay and delegitimize Mueller’s investigation.

      “The question is what law, statue or rule or regulation has been violated? And nobody has pointed to one,” he said, later adding that “there are irregularities in this investigation, the likes of which we have not seen.”

      Asked whether Trump would testify as part of Mueller’s investigation if asked, Sekulow said that they would not advise him to give an interview at this time.

          The tRump disaster continues.....unstopped by a craven Congress clearly in cahoots with Putin.

          Characterized by a couple of Russia visits of summer 2018:

          Clearly, there's Congressional dalliance with tRump/Putin. Why? And why not with No. Korea?

              I wonder if it would have clarified things for him if it were Iran offering the dirt? Or better yet, what if the Russians offered dirt on himself to Hillary? Boy, those hearings would have been better than Benghazi!...


              But nowadays, hypocrisy is quite acceptable, as is lying and allowing our enemies to infiltrate and corrupt our electoral systems and to attack the divisions in our society.

                  Hypocrisy has reached an unprecidented level of respectability. "Everybody does it," comes off as, "don't make us investigate Democrats," as if to say they're doing us a favor. In reality if they "know," Democrats do it too, why are we supposed to believe that these muckrakers wouldn't be riding the proof of whatever Democrats, "do too," like a cheap whore?


                  How was Nunes who was recused from the Russian investigation running the house Intel committee's investigation on the same? We have stupid stunts like the Memo, that was no more reality based than what a troll would post here. Here, we would at least demand a respectable source.


                  The American people are not all chock full of stupid. Most of us know that no one in Washington is without sin, but we should not be expected to wait for Jesus to take over the Mueller investigation.


                  These fools stand butt deep in a swamp of their own making refusing to allow anyone to acknowledge the stench. Adding insult to injury, we have have so called men of God, steeping it in Calvinist rhetoric, as if these lying cheats are doing it in the name of God. I am going to guess someone dialed up tbe wrong number and not one of them have the holy brass balls to call BS.


                  The level of hypocrisy is offensive, it is unholy and unAmerican. I do not give a tinker's damn about anyone who supports this. Trump's base are the cockroaches feeding off a party that gave them cart blanch to turn the rest of us into cockroaches.

                          I know of no other presidential candidate who ever called for or sought foreign assistance to beat a rival.


                          Of course, we've never had such an unAmerican person as Trump run for the Presidency.
