Posted on 07/08/2017 3:19:12 PM PDT by ColdOne
Two weeks after Donald J. Trump clinched the Republican presidential nomination last year, his eldest son arranged a meeting at Trump Tower in Manhattan with a Russian lawyer who has connections to the Kremlin, according to confidential government records described to The New York Times.
The previously undisclosed meeting was also attended by Mr. Trumps campaign chairman at the time, Paul J. Manafort, as well as the presidents son-in-law, Jared Kushner, according to interviews and the documents, which were outlined by people familiar with them.
While President Trump has been dogged by revelations of undisclosed meetings between his associates and Russians, this episode at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016, is the first confirmed private meeting between a Russian national and members of Mr. Trumps inner circle during the campaign. It is also the first time that his son Donald J. Trump Jr. is known to have been involved in such a meeting.
Representatives of Donald J. Trump Jr. and Mr. Kushner confirmed the meeting after The Times approached them with information about it. In a statement, Donald Jr described the meeting as primarily about an adoption program. The statement did not address whether the presidential campaign was discussed.

A Russian woman rents our guest house in the back, so I guess I have a connection to the Kremlin too..yep I said it, Im part of the collusion :-)
The Russians manipulated the whole country into not liking Hillary. Even the black folk didn’t get behind her. Imagine that- black people didn’t want to vote for an old, strokey white woman. What can’t those Russians do
“according to confidential government records described to The New York Times”
If Trump’s team meets with any lawyer who has a ‘V’ in his last name that is surely proof of corruption and Russian meddling!
Soviet always prove negative yes?
Anyone want to investigate the Hillary-Russia uranium connection?
Podesta’s million-ruble connection?
Hillary’s server and the almost certainty that it was hacked by Russia (as well as every other nation on earth with a competent intelligence service)?
In Soviet America, government has conspiracy theory about YOU!
Russia is crack to the media.
Get over it, you lost and nobody likes you.
Yea and someone is feeding MSNBC fake documents.
The MMM has been outed for what they are and Gorka spelled it out and nailed it as posted earlier with this link:
Is the NYT really this desperate? #pathetic
More NYT’s BS!
Oh, my Lord, they’re still trying this. Unbelievable.
Barack Hussein Obama got his start in politics thanks to a domestic terrorist who bombed the Pentagon and pledged support to the North Vietnamese in a time of war.
they create a false story about russian collusion, and then report about the reports. after a few months of that, they report that the administration has been “dogged” by reports that didn’t exist until they created them.
No mention of Crooked Hillary’s connections to Russia?
I met Santa many moons ago with kids.
The Clinton team “colluded” constantly with Podesta.
SO, WHO IS INVESTGATING THAT??
By whom? Some wino in the alley? "Hey, lissen, I tellya I saw this confidential report about Trump's staff when I wuz workin' in the CIA, no, really, and for a twenny and a boddle of Night Train I'll tellya all aboudid..."
