It’s recently come to light that in an attempt to cover up his son’s involvement in the Russia scandal, Trump decided to take matters into his own hands and as a result has put himself and his family members into some potentially serious legal trouble.
According to The Washington Post, Trump met with advisers last month “on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Germany.” On the table was how to tackle the fact that Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer during Trumps campaign run in 2016.
In a recent article, The Washington Post had this to say:
“The strategy, the advisers agreed, should be for Donald Trump Jr. to release a statement to get ahead of the story. They wanted to be truthful, so their account couldn’t be repudiated later if the full details emerged.”
However, it didn’t take long for Trump to do what Trump does best and take control of the whole situation, which also made him directly responsible for the messaging. Under Trump’s guidance, his oldest son was issued a statement claiming, that he had met with the lawyer to discuss “ a program about the adoption of Russian children.”
It seems unlikely that this was actually the topic of conversation seeing as Trump and his family have gone to such great lengths to hide information and sidetrack anyone who wants to look into the meetings. But now that this information has come to light, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of legal trouble Trump and his family have gotten themselves into.
