‘Had to listen’: Donald Trump Jr. admits meeting with Russian lawyer to get Hillary dirt

Published

on

Donald Trump Jr. on Monday admitting meeting with a Kremlin-connected lawyer who had promised to help him get damaging information on former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

In a tweet posted Monday morning, Trump Jr. sarcastically said that “obviously I’m the first person on a campaign to ever take a meeting to hear info about an opponent,” before adding that the actual meeting “went nowhere but [I] had to listen.”

The New York Times reported on Sunday that Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya reached out to Trump Jr. last June by telling him that she had damaging information on Hillary Clinton that would help his father’s campaign.

Trump Jr. claimed that she didn’t offer any substantive information on Clinton, and spent most of the time talking about American adoption policies. In addition to Trump Jr., former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner were also present at the meeting.

This past March, Trump Jr. flatly denied that he had ever met with any Russian officials in any premeditated meetings — a statement that has now been revealed to be untrue in the wake of the Times’ bombshell report over the weekend.

Despite this, Trump Jr. subsequently tweeted out a New York Post op-ed that called the Times’ big report on Trump Jr. “a big yawn.”
