Actually Stunning Trump Jr. Emails

   This actually is stunning:
 “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump,” wrote Goldstone.
   It should go without saying that this doesn't show that the Russian government did support Trump (though we've got independent evidence for that)...but it shows that Trump Jr. was willing to meet with someone who alleged ties with the Russian government in order to get dirt on HRC. 
   Is there such a thing as attempted collusion?

Um, holy shit. I just raced over here upon seeing that email floating across Facebook to see if you'd seen that.

This is pretty...uh...smoking gun-y...

I...do not see any way around this one...

Why did Junior release this without a fight?

1) he's stupid
2) he's inexperienced
3) 1 AND 2
4) I believe the New York Times ran an article with the emails earlier in the day so they were already out there?!?


He just confirmed, without a fight, the NYT story. See 1 AND 2 AND...

Correction, it appears Don Jr tweeted these right before the Times article came out.

So, at the cost of being the guy that toots his own horn... I did say:

"This description here, however, sounds about right to me; the Russians presented an opportunity to trump and his acolytes to gain an upper hand against Clinton, and they took it.

I seriously doubt that they would've rejected such an opportunity, and I further doubt they would've considered (perhaps at all) the fact that this would be assisting the Russians in attacking the American Democracy. If they justified their behavior beyond a practical effort to win an election, they probably thought more like: "Well, Clinton's a disaster, and it's in the American public's interest that we take every opportunity to prove it."

We've got a group of people whom there is no doubt in my mind lack the ethical wherewithal to prevent themselves from doing something like this and a group of people whom there is no doubt in my mind had the intent to enable the former group to do something like this.

So, if I were a betting man and the opportunity were there to know with certainty what occurred, I would place large sums of money on the assertion that collusion of this sort did occur. "

A few comments back...



<-- win.
