The left has been apoplectic over the news that Donald Trump, Jr. had met with a lawyer from Russia during the presidential election, but more cold water was just poured all over the nothing burger.
Natalia Veselnitskaya was interviewed by NBC News regarding the meeting, which the younger Trump admits happened but said that nothing of importance came of, and, well, they probably weren’t too happy with what she had to say about everything. In fact, she confirmed what we all already knew – there’s no meat to be picking off this bone.
The Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. during the presidential campaign denied in an exclusive interview with NBC News that she had any connection to the Kremlin and insists she met with President Donald Trump’s son to press her client’s interest in the Magnitsky Act — not to hand over information about Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
“I never had any damaging or sensitive information about Hillary Clinton. It was never my intention to have that,” Natalia Veselnitskaya said.
When asked how Trump Jr. seemed to have the impression that she had information about the Democratic National Committee, she responded:
“It is quite possible that maybe they were longing for such an information. They wanted it so badly that they could only hear the thought that they wanted.”
Trump Jr. has confirmed that the meeting occurred, saying in a statement to The New York Times that he attended “a short introductory meeting” with the lawyer, where the topic of conversation was primarily about adoption.
Poor liberals. They want this Russia story to be true so badly that they’re completely contorting the initial allegations of collusion to mean any contact with Russian people whatsoever, and time and time again they keep failing.
So what? Trump, Jr. met with this woman in hopes of getting information linking Hillary Clinton to the Kremlin.
Did people already forget that Hillary Clinton’s campaign worked with the Ukrainians to beat Trump?
Double standards abounds.
