Donald Trump Jr. Admits Meeting With Russian for Campaign Intel
He was appealing to the red states. The president’s eldest son has admitted meeting with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer who promised to deliver intel damaging to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign. Trump Jr. said the meeting — which included presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign manager Paul Manafort, and was reportedly arranged at the behest of a prominent Russian singer and businessman — produced “no meaningful information.” The revelations came as President Trump announced plans for a joint “impenetrable Cyber Security unit” with Russia, then backtracked after the GOP reacted with sharp criticism.
