Enjoyed your column, John! The haters are coming on this one for sure. That is, unless they are just too embarrassed by this whole situation. However, I don't really look for their thought process to go that far.

The defenders of Agent Orange completely miss the boat on this one. They continue to deflect to Hillary, or minimize the action as just a meeting, or, my favorite, it's not illegal so it's okay. The main importance here is the same as it was in Watergate: it's not the crime as much as it is the cover-up. How long now have they been saying there was no contact between the Trump regime and the Russians? Then it was, well, okay, there was Flynn, then Sessions, then Carter Page, then Kushnar, and now Junior. It's the lying, and covering up, and omitting, and obfuscating, and forgetting that are the main issues here. There is a malignancy on this presidency, and the cancer starts at the top.

Lol, I forgot Manafort! The list is getting so long that you can't keep up with the players without a scorecard.

Brummett should know who turns up at that intersection because he lives there.

"But that's no defense. It's rotten luck." Exactly John. I know some on the right are trying to downplay this meeting and e-mail exchange, but quite frankly until Don Jr. and others go under oath on this we don't know if nothing came of it. He's already pretty lousy at telling the truth on matters so why should we believe his statements that nothing came of the meeting.
...
More importantly was his intent that something WOULD come of the meeting and the integrity of the campaign would sink even further. More importantly, it follows the trend that Trump and Russia are far too close of buddies for the national security of this country.

Illegal, probably not, unethical and idiotic, yes. I like how JB downplayed the unethical behavior by the democrats, plainly much lesser sin. Timber, thanks for your typical copy and paste.

It was the Obama Justice Department Loretta Lynch that enabled Moscow attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya to enter the country without a visa. Where she embarked on a lobbying campaign last year that ensnared the president’s eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews.
"Public record shows that Democrats have willfully used Moscow disinformation to influence the presidential election against Donald Trump and attack his administration.
The disinformation came in the form of a Russian-fed dossier written by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. It contains a series of unverified criminal charges against Mr. Trump’s campaign aides, such as coordinating Moscow’s hacking of Democratic Party computers.
Mr. Steele was paid by the Democrat-funded opposition research firm Fusion GPS with money from a Hillary Clinton backer. Fusion GPS distributed the dossier among Democrats and journalists. The information fell into the hands of the FBI, which used it in part to investigate Mr. Trump’s campaign aides."
"Mr. Steele makes clear that his unproven charges came almost exclusively from sources linked to the Kremlin and Russian President Vladimir Putin. He identified his sources as “a senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure,” a former “top level Russian intelligence officer active inside the Kremlin,” a “senior Kremlin official” and a “senior Russian government official.”
"The same Democrats who have condemned Russia’s election interference via plying fake news and hacking email servers have quoted freely from the Steele anti-Trump memos derived from creatures of the Kremlin."
"In the dossier, Mr. Steele clearly states that his anti-Trump accusations are from the Kremlin, which means some Democrats have been willingly repeating Moscow propaganda for public consumption in Washington. Democrats members of the House intelligence committee have embraced the Russian-sourced dossier which is investigating Moscow’s interference in the election, democrats and media like Brummett believed the lie and fake propaganda."

The stupidity of the entire clan is breathtaking. Mueller is like the silent, motionless crocodile and the Trumptards are hapless wildebeast splashing around in the river. only a matter of time until there's lots of blood in the water. Kushner will get taken out by this as well. Not much scrutiny on him yet but hoping he's thoroughly probed. Ivanka MUST have known about the meeting as well. Can't WAIT to see how this all plays out!

Davidscherrey -

I'm going to try to practice civil discourse here and simply ask what your source is for all of that and can you provide a link or two to back it up?

You seem to believe all that you wrote as fact and the media is helping Democrats cover it up. I'm an open minded guy, so I would love to read more about the things you mentioned from a credible source. Thanks in advance.
