The failing New York Times has been caught once again making claims that they have not verified as they have never read or even seen the evidence, yet they report it as true.
The New York Times reports Monday evening that Donald Trump, Jr. was informed through an email that the information on Hillary Clinton that a Russian lawyer had offered to provide “was part of a Russian government effort to aid his father’s candidacy.”
The email in question “was sent by Rob Goldstone, a publicist and former British tabloid reporter who helped broker the June 2016 meeting” with the Russian lawyer, the Times reports.
Supposedly, the email would have alerted Trump, Jr. to the lawyer’s alleged links to the Kremlin.
Curiously, the Times does not provide the email. Nor has it actually seen the email. Its source: “three people with knowledge of the email.”
This is only the latest effort by the Times to bring down President Donald Trump that relies on documents it has not seen and verified.
In May, it reported that Trump had referred to former FBI director James Comey as a “nut job” in a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, citing “a document summarizing the meeting” that it did not actually read or have in its possession, but which was read selectively to the Times by “an American official.”

Give it a couple of days and this entire story will have blown over and the New York Times will have to eat crow.
