Details from the meeting have leaked, already. According to the New York Times, Trump Jr. took the “Russia meeting” because he doubted Hillary Clinton’s “fitness” for office.
Here is what the statement said via the New York Times:
“TO THE EXTENT THEY HAD INFORMATION CONCERNING THE FITNESS, CHARACTER OR QUALIFICATIONS OF A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, I BELIEVED THAT I SHOULD AT LEAST HEAR THEM OUT,” HE SAID. “DEPENDING ON WHAT, IF ANY, INFORMATION THEY HAD, I COULD THEN CONSULT WITH COUNSEL TO MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION AS TO WHETHER TO GIVE IT FURTHER CONSIDERATION.”
Trump Jr. left Capitol Hill and did not speak with reporters at all. It’s disgusting that the New York Times leaked the transcript, but let’s show some support for Trump Jr.
Share this if you support Turmp Jr. and think that the entire Russia scandal is total BS.
Let’s make this go viral so that he sees it and sees all the people on his side.
