Several Republicans are doing what they do best during a state of emergency — blame the Democrats, particularly Obama.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is one of the GOP Senators who feels as though Donald Jr. committed no crime when he met with a Kremlin-affiliated attorney to collect damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
Grassley wrote a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, asking them how the Russian attorney, Natalia Veselnitskaya, was able to stay in the U.S. five months beyond the expiration of her visa.
Donald Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner met Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower NYC in June 2016. Veselnitskaya’s visa expired in January of the same year. Grassley is using this as an excuse to blame Obama for allowing the meeting to happen.
Since The New York Times first exposed Donald Trump Jr., he has posted a string of emails to his Twitter account proving he attempted to collude with the Russians.
Fox News took Grassley’s point and ran with it to blame Obama on Live TV.
