Mueller’s Russia Investigation Turns To Donald Trump Jr.

Donald Trump Jr. may have made promises to a Russian lawyer in exchange for dirt on Hillary Clinton. John Iadarola and Mark Thompson, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Join TYT:

“A Russian lawyer who met with President Donald Trump’s oldest son last year says he indicated that a law targeting Russia could be re-examined if his father won the election and asked her for written evidence that illegal proceeds went to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

The lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, said in a two-and-a-half-hour interview in Moscow that she would tell these and other things to the Senate Judiciary Committee on condition that her answers be made public, something it hasn’t agreed to. She has received scores of questions from the committee, which is investigating possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. Veselnitskaya said she’s also ready — if asked — to testify to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Her June 9, 2016 encounter with Donald Trump Jr., President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and then campaign manager Paul Manafort in New York plays a key role in allegations that the campaign worked with Russia to defeat Clinton.

Veselnitskaya said she went to the New York meeting to show Trump campaign officials that major Democratic donors had evaded U.S. taxes and to lobby against the so-called Magnitsky law that punishes Russian officials for the murder of a Russian tax accountant who accused the Kremlin of corruption.”

  1. The meeting was a set up to pose a Trump with a Russian. The Russian collusion was between Obama, the Clintons, and the Kremlin. Tyt is becoming fake news.

  2. I too have been attacked by the Donald…he will come after you if he's not praised… this is dictatorship at it's best.

  3. You can surely tell when republicans and the trump family and their lawyers are getting desperate, especially when they have to try and keep trying to deflect and distract when they have to talk about Obama, Hillary or some other Democrat all of time! Mueller is smarter than that! And trump, family and his supporters are replete with ignorance and stupidity!

  4. Yeah hurry up & get that sob out of our house put his ass BK in his big high rise that the Russian has bought & paid for to bail him out of not 1 but 3 major banks & he has done played more golf than any other Potus has done & how he has promised to make America great again did no one noticed how long it took him to get to Florida & Porta Rico why cause he has no big golf course down there I wish American would demand his inpeachedment get his sorry ass along with all the kids drain the swamp please

  5. Put whole Trump family Jail, IMPEACH, IMPEACH Trump!! Criminals and LIERS , IMPEACH that crazy pathological lier Donald Trump and his lier Junior!!

  6. Since the questionable election of the buffoon in the WH, America is being flushed down the toilet! Vote come the 2018 midterms and return the House and Senate and Governorships back to the Dems! Republicans (as we can obviously see) are the "BIGGEST" threat to the United States today! But the real focus now is on this Congress! They need to go! And this "one term" idiot in the WH needs to go unless the investigation takes him down first if/when Mueller finds proof! We know the republicans are not going to do anything against trump, even if there is proof of criminal activity, so you Democrats will need to come out in force in the 2018 midterms and flip this worthless do nothing republican congress! Just like we've recently seen the wins in Virginia and New Jersey and other offices around the Country! It can be done, and "is" being done! Enough is enough! Let's end this mistake in the WH! A different congress will make trump a moot irrelevant point for as long as we have to deal with this clumsy uneducated idiot! And let's stop the Confederates from taking over this Country! If you all remember, it was (Gen.Ulysses S. Grant) and the North that put an end ultimately to those mindless confederate idiots and went on to assume the WH as the 18th U.S. president in 1868!

  7. Still winning! Trump will win 2020 also. Because you coward liberals couldnt even stand for Sanders when he needed you the most! Dont blame Trump for you shit, fix your party if you wanna have a chance. You are carrying out hillarys fake russian gate. She still using the liberals for her dirty work!

  8. The Russian Lawyer's presence in the USA was the result of a decision by Obama's AG. She was tied directly to Fusion GPS. Her record of the discussion would obviously be in support of the Obama Cabal and was demonstrated by her subsequent discussions withLEFT wing media. She like Hilary is a lying bitch!!

  9. oh how savage garden And 50 shades tell my tragic heartbreaking love story
    cherry cola. vanilla coke. apple pie poems. i am missing a few people right now.

  10. If you trace what the Russian lawyer did and the timings, the reality sinks in. She was a Democrat troll put in place by then Attorney General who was not a Trump associate. You all are able to connect the dots – or are you?

  11. Idiot Libs still beaing the fake story of Russian Collusion … But the Memo is being released which will show and prove it was the Clinton Crime Family and the Muttbama Administration who wiped their ass with our Constitution.
