Trump Jr. Met With Kremlin-Connected Attorney During Election – Proof That It Was a SET-UP

News recently broke that Donald Trump, Jr. met with a Russian lawyer during his father’s presidential campaign last year, alongside Paul Manafort and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. The left has eagerly jumped on this news as proof of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia — but was the entire situation actually a set-up?

The Trump team is claiming that Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer in question, misrepresented herself and who she worked for during the meeting, which took place on June 9th, 2016. “We have learned from both our own investigation and public reports that the participants in the meeting misrepresented who they were and who they worked for,” said Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Trump’s legal team.

According to Corallo, Veselnitskaya actually has connections to Democrats that the left is not disclosing. “Specifically, we have learned that the person who sought the meeting is associated with Fusion GPS, a firm which according to public reports, was retained by Democratic operatives to develop opposition research on the President and which commissioned the phony Steele dossier,” he said. “These developments raise serious issues as to exactly who authorized and participated in any effort by Russian nationals to influence our election in any manner.”

The Steele dossier would be made up of 17 memos, the first of which was dated on June 20th, and alleges that Russia has blackmail material that can be used against Trump. So, was this an incidence of the Trump team colluding with Russia, or of Democrats trying to set the Trump team up?

As for Trump, Jr., he says that he was told the meeting would entail negative information about Hillary Clinton. “After pleasantries were exchanged, the woman stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Ms. Clinton,” Trump, Jr. said in a statement to the New York Times. “Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information.” He said that while Clinton was the supposed reason for the meeting, it later became obvious that the meeting was actually meant to forward Putin’s agenda, concerning the adoptions of Russian children and the Magnitsky Act, which concerns human rights abuses. Fusion GPS was involved with anti-Magnitsky efforts to have the sanctions rolled back.

An investigation clearly needs to be opened into this meeting — but it may not have the results that liberals hoped for.
