A report from the failing New York Times tries to expose President Trump’s connections to Russia by showing that Donald Trump Jr. had met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 election.
The report highlights that the woman stated that she had information that Russians were funding the Democratic National Convention and were personally supporting Hillary Clinton.
The New York Times reported:
But on Sunday, presented with The Times’s findings, he offered a new account. In a statement, he said he had met with the Russian lawyer at the request of an acquaintance from the 2013 Miss Universe pageant, which his father took to Moscow. “After pleasantries were exchanged,” he said, “the woman stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Mrs. Clinton. Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information.”
He said she then turned the conversation to adoption of Russian children and the Magnitsky Act, an American law that blacklists suspected Russian human rights abusers. The 2012 law so enraged President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia that he halted American adoptions of Russian children.
“It became clear to me that this was the true agenda all along and that the claims of potentially helpful information were a pretext for the meeting,” Mr. Trump said.
Notice how the media blows this entire thing out of proportion.
The media is just trying to slow down the Trump agenda!
