Let’s be clear. President Trump and his cohorts have continuously denied meeting with any Russians regarding the election. They have all lied. Manafort who was also at the meeting with Trump Jr. lied when he said they had never met with the Russians. Kushner who was also at this particular meeting also lied on the forms he filled out to obtain his security clearance. Attorney General Jeff Sessions also lied about meeting with Russian Ambassador Kyslyak during his confirmation hearings.
Donald Trump Jr. went on Fox News last night to defend himself. He is counting on Trump’s base to ignore his and his father’s lies. He’s counting on the GOP to ignore the constant lying and now possible criminal behavior by Trump’s campaign and own family. Maybe he is more relaxed than he should be knowing that his father can pardon him.
According to NPR last night he went on Sean Hannity’s show and suggested he was a victim of circumstance,
“I didn’t know if there was any credibility, I didn’t know if there was anything behind it, I can’t vouch for the information. Someone sent me an email. I can’t help what someone sends me. I read it, I responded accordingly,” Don Jr. told Hannity.
