GAME OVER! Donald Trump Jr. Is Forced To Release Emails Proving The Trump Campaign Colluded With Russia To Influence the 2016 US Election (FULL EMAILS)

This afternoon the New York Times had intended on running an article which was to have contained copies Donald Trump Jr.'s email correspondence with Rod Goldstone, the man who set up his meeting with a Russian lawyer with ties to the Kremlin. In the emails Goldstone had indicated to Trump Jr. that the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, had promised to deliver damaging info on his father's political rival Hillary Clinton care of a Russian effort to help his father in the 2016 Presidential election.

Before the NYT ran their story they contacted Trump Jr. and various White House staff members for comment on the soon to be published article.

Trump Jr. and the White House staffers all stated that they would get back to the Times shortly with a statement.

Unknown at that time was that Trump Jr. and the staffers were quickly piecing all of Junior's emails to and from Goldstone and pumping them out via Twitter before the Times could get their story to print.

This was done for two reasons. One, because the NYT had forced the Trump Jr's hand and two, so the Trump surrogates could go on the friendly confines of Fox News and claim they had nothing to hide and were being 100 percent transparent with the communications.

The problem the Trump administration still faces is that these communications they were so transparent with are unbelievably damning to say the least.

They prove two things. One, that Donald Trump, his family and every single one of his surrogates lied when they said they never had any contacts with Russia to influence the 2016 US elections. Two, that Donald Trump, his family and every single one of his surrogates lied when they said they never had never colluded with Russia to sway the 2016 US election.

Here are the emails in chronological order.

*Keep in mind that up until four days ago Donald Trump Jr. was denying that he had ever met with a Russian let alone colluded  with one...

What do we learn from theses emails?

Let's take a look...

• The emails show Donald Trump Jr. knew he was meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian government attorney with ties to the Kremlin, to obtain documents from the Russian government that would harm Hillary Clinton's election.

• The email explicitly shows that Trump Jr. knew that the meeting with Veselnitskaya would be for the purpose providing “official documents” that “incriminate Hillary” via a Russian government.

• Rob Goldstone, the man who set up the meeting, offered to send information directly to Donald Trump.

• Trump Jr. forwarded the emails to Trump’s then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his son-in-law and close adviser Jared Kushner which referred to providing “incriminating” information as part of “Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump”. This shows that top officials in the Trump campaign knew there was a Russian effort to support Trump’s campaign.

• Manafort and Kushner, who initially failed to disclose the meeting in his application for a top-secret security clearance, attended the meeting.

• Natalia Veselnitskaya was not the only Russian at the meeting with Kushner, Manafort and Trump Jr. The emails refer to two Russians attending the meeting — Veselnitskaya and another individual who she told the Times was "an interpreter".

• The emails suggest Trump Jr. may have broken the law by soliciting anything of value from foreign nationals which violates campaign finance law.

• Even though Trump Jr. says he received “no meaningful information” from the meeting, it is instead the fact that Trump Jr., Kushner and Manafort attended the meeting with intentions to accept secret help from the Russian government in order to damage Clinton and win the US election that is the smoking gun.

So, after 172 days the truth is out and I would wager that this isn't close to being the last shoe to drop.

The question of "was there any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia" is now dead. The question now is "how much collusion was there!"

So alas Trumpers... It is time to put the terms "witch hunt" and "fake news" out to pasture and come out of the bubble. Games over.
