Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Collusion Confusion edition

Well, that’s what I get for trying to take some time off.  I was going to extend my sabbatical for another week, since Barbara is up in Seattle visiting her brother, and I’m well-stocked on hookers and blow – and then some Freeper has to post THIS :

Wow : Donald Trump Jr. Releases the Emails — and They Look a lot Like, Um, Collusion

Townhall ^ | July 11, 2017 | Guy Benson

Earlier today, here at Townhall and on Fox News, I said that more information needed to be gathered before anyone should declare the Donald Trump, Jr. story a bombshell or a dud. First and foremost, I argued, it would be very helpful to see the actual emails that preceded the now-infamous June meeting, which the New York Times claimed would demonstrate that the president’s son was well aware of the alleged source and nature of the promised anti-Clinton information (which never materialized) in advance.

The Times story was rooted in unnamed sources who characterized, but apparently did not produced, the messages in question. In order to determine if the documents were being mischaracterized, we should see them, I said. About an hour later, Donald Trump, Jr. tweeted the full four-page exchange, which Cortney relayed here. Trump Jr. cast his tweets as efforts at full transparency, but one can’t help but wonder if there was another pressing motive at play: He preempted the Times, which had the chain and was about to run with it. In any case, the content of these emails was, in my case, literally jaw-dropping.

Trump Jr’s associate alerted him to the supposed existence of highly sensitive information regarding wrongdoing tied to Mrs. Clinton, telling him that it would be furnished by a “Russian government attorney” who was representing “Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump” (who now claims she wasn’t tied to the Kremlin). To which Trump Jr. replied, “if it’s what you say I love it.”

This couldn’t be much clearer: And these shifts look really bad, especially when you read the quote from March in which Trump Jr. flatly denies meeting with any Russian nationals in arranged meetings: .

And the comment from the Freeper who posted this heresy??

Wait for it…..

Not good.

It IS a matter of credibility. It may not be against the law or policy, but we would condemn the same series of events if the Clintons or Barack the Pretender or Schumer, or any other of the leftist beasts did it.

matters not to me except people should be treated consistently on both sides. That’s not happening.

Not sure why he released the emails. Why not ignore the whole deal?

He had to release them because the NYT was going to.

I don’t like any lying or hiding on DJT Jr’s part. Look what a feeding frenzy he has caused from not being open about this from day one.

To: righttackle44


I agree. While I have generally been highly skeptical of a lot of these so called reports because of where most of them are coming from. this is not coming from the leftist press.  I am not sure if this is illegal, but it is disturbing. I am forced to ask myself what would we be saying if it was one of the Clinton Cartel who was getting dirt on Trump from a foreign power? I am reserving judgement here, but you are right. This doesn’t look good.

Your reaction would depend on the quality of the dirt, and how that quality was represented.

We have a dim view of the dodgey dossier, because it is dodgey and full of falsehood.

It would be disturbing if Don Jr. hadn’t met with the woman. If there is evidence of more criminal behavior by the Clintons, someone needs to find out about it and relay it to the FBI.

The left is relying on morons such as yourself to help advance their narrative.

“Show me where collusion in a campaign is against the law.”

52 U.S. Code § 30121 – Contributions and donations by foreign nationals

It’s prohibited for a person to solicit a thing of value to a campaign from a foreign national.

These emails show that Donald Trump Jnr thought this lawyer was a foreign national with valuable material about the Clinton campaign. His attempting to arrange a meeting with her to obtain this material, that’s solicitation.

It might not have led anywhere, but it doesn’t have to. Just trying to get materials of value from a foreign national still breaks the law.

Junior may actually have got himself in a spot of bother here. Certainly I wouldn’t expect this story to go anywhere soon.

Not sure about disclosure, but Manafort of all people should have known the meeting wasn’t a good idea.

Manafort was probably too busy lobbying for Viktor Yanukovych, and registering as a foreign agent to give them his input.
Just guessing.
To: gov_bean_ counter


Politico claiming manafort is disavowing by saying he didnt read the whole email chain

Kushner has already thrown Jr under the bus

The problem they have with all of this is that they dont know what tapes etc may be out there of all the players by different countries who were spying..and people who may have been recording themselves for protection

At this point Jr should be considering himself an adverse party to kushner. Hopefully mob lawyer he just hired gets that point across.

One thought on “Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Collusion Confusion edition

  1. DJT Jr, is looking more and more like Fredo.

    More and more of a liability for The Don. Bannon might have to take Fredo for a little boating trip and explain how it’s ‘just bizness’.
