Trump Tower meeting with Russians 'treasonous', Bannon says in explosive book
Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon has described the Trump Tower meeting between the president’s son and a group of Russians during the 2016 election campaign as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic”, according to an explosive new book seen by the Guardian...
..He is particularly scathing about a June 2016 meeting involving Trump’s son Donald Jr, son-in-law Jared Kushner, then campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in New York. A trusted intermediary had promised documents that would “incriminate” rival Hillary Clinton but instead of alerting the FBI to a potential assault on American democracy by a foreign power, Trump Jr replied in an email: “I love it.”
The meeting was revealed by the New York Times in July last year, prompting Trump Jr to say no consequential material was produced. Soon after, Wolff writes, Bannon remarked mockingly: “The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor – with no lawyers. They didn’t have any lawyers.
“Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad sh- t, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.”
“You realise where this is going,” he is quoted as saying. “This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to f--ing Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr and Jared Kushner … It’s as plain as a hair on your face.”

The word treason gets thrown around pretty loosely these days. Here is its definition:
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
—Constitution of the United States of America, Article III, Section 3
Treason= DNC and Hillary paying Russia for FAKE Dossier
Bannon butthurt over Trump pissing in his corn flakes?
Treason = selling Russia our uranium for $20 million...
Obama did exactly that with Iran. Wow, right on the money.
Treason: John Kerry trips to visit North Viennese in Paris. Ted Kenned asking Russia for help to defeat Reagan. Hillary Clinton many times.
Treason is SOP for the Demonicrats.
For over a year we have witnessed an attempted coup d'état against a duly, elected President.
Bannon is making a fool out of himself.
Defends Trump for a year, with this same knowledge...and now it becomes “treason”. Ridiculous infighting, or book selling, or running for office, or looking for cash, or wanting publicity,...but don’t tell me it is treason, because your prior defense of it makes you part of it.
Its Michael Wolff. He is always stirring up sh*t.
Now why, did the informants not mention that?
Am I missing something? Is there anything new here that we didn’t already know?
It’s not treason to get info from another country. Period. Someone from Haiti gives you documents showing Hillary is a crook. Nothing wrong with it. In terms of any wrongdoing, I don’t believe the Don Jr meeting had any indication the Russians committed a crime.
Does the article ever say who wrote the new book?
