Sh*t is hitting the fan in the Trump White House!
Following the release of the series of New York Times bombshells exposing Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Kremlin-affiliated attorney, everyone wants to know: “What did the president know, and when did he know it?”
Russian music publicist Rob Goldstone approached Donald Trump Jr. with an offer of damaging information on Hillary Clinton that could help his father win the election.
According to The New York Times, in an email dated June 3, 2016, Goldstone wrote to Jr., “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”
Donald Trump Jr. was eager to accept the help; he responded, “I love it.”
The Trump White House claimed that Donald Jr.’s meeting with the lawyer was not collusion.
Here’s the big problem. Check out the photo below of Donald Trump seated alongside the Russians involved in the Jr. scandal:

Via Daily Kos:
To throw another log on the intrigue fire, consider for one moment that the meeting Don Jr. arranged with Natalia Veselnitskaya also involved the highest people in the Trump campaign—Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort. The meeting took place two weeks after Trump secured the Republican nomination. They spent the day meeting with Reince Preibus and the Republican National Committee for the campaign’s first “finance meeting.” They were jump-starting their Republican National Convention planning. In other words, they were super, super busy. And yet, Don Jr. was able to get Kushner and Manafort to drop everything for the meeting with Veselnitskaya. So perhaps it was someone other than Don Jr. who ordered his top lieutenants to attend?
